Ahh yes, high-tea. An indulgent meal consisting of champagne and fancy looking desserts served in elaborate three-tiered trays; high-teas are basically the queen of yum cha. Seriously, have you seen the tea set that comes in a jewellery drawer chest?

From sipping tea by the bay to enjoying tantalising cakes amidst the cityscape, high-tea dates can be just as romantic as an extravagant dinner date at half the price (guys, you’re welcome).

If you are looking to take café-hopping dates up a notch, or wish to experience the high society, here are six exquisite tea spots for a romantic day out!


If you are a fan of high-teas, you’ll be familiar with ANTI:DOTE’s jewellery drawer chest tea set (yeap, this is the one we were talking about).


Situated in Fairmont Hotel, their high-tea selection consists of various creations including gourmet sandwiches such as Smoked Salmon with Lemon Cream Cheese and Ikura Roe, Mini Strawberry Cake, and Warm Chia Seeds Scones.

As ANTI:DOTE is conveniently located in town, we would highly recommend you to make reservations to avoid any disappointment.
