Afternoon Tea at Mount Nelson

Make sure your trip to the Mother City is complete and experience the best afternoon tea Cape Town has to offer. Enjoy delicate finger sandwiches filled with rare roast beef and rocket, smoked salmon, egg mayonnaise or cucumber. Follow with a delectable dark chocolate cake, lemon meringue and freshly baked scones with clotted cream and preserves.

Adding a special local flavour is a typical South African milk tart, called “melktert” in Afrikaans.

During the winter months you can also enjoy a selection of warm treats. Expect mushroom empanadas, tomato tarts and chicken pies.

The signature Mount Nelson Tea has been expertly blended from six teas: Darjeeling, Kenya, Assam, Keemun, Yunnan, Ceylon, and rose petals from our garden. In addition, we offer an array of leaf and flowering teas.

Morning, Afternoon and Evening Tea are served in the lounge, on the terrace or around the garden fountain.
