The Intercontinental is a beautiful hotel, which combines elements of old and new. The high tea is served in the Cortile Lounge, which has a soaring glass ceiling and sandstone walls. This post is a combination of 2 visits, one of which was just before Christmas
Probably the best thing about the high tea at the intercontinental is that on Saturdays and Sundays it is served as a buffet. They have an extensive selection of both savoury and sweet items so not matter which you prefer you will be able to have as much as you like!
The Saturday and Sunday buffet is $55 and includes a glass of sparkling wine on arrival (or $70 for a glass of Veuve Clicquot Brut), along with your choice of Ronnefeldt loose leaf tea, filter coffee or a refreshing iced tea. There are two sessions for high tea 1:00pm - 2:30pm and 3:00pm - 4:30pm.
