22 Places for High Tea in Singapore (2020) — Updated with 1-for-1 Deals

Best High Tea Buffets & Sets in Singapore

Long associated with tai tais, colonial masters, and assorted rich people not chained to a desk job, having high tea in a posh hotel is one of the things that Singaporeans are always fantasizing about.

Unlike breakfast, lunch, and dinner, there’s absolutely no nutritional justification for afternoon tea — which is just what makes it feel so self-indulgent. Plus, there’s usually an absurdly expensive price tag attached to it. So if you have both money and time for high tea, you’ve made it in life.

Nah, seriously, there are actually also affordable high tea sets and buffets in Singapore, which is a good thing since I have a fancy-tea-and-puff-pastry dependency. Read on for the options. 

Note: Reservations (up to 5 only) are recommended.
