It was October last year when I had made up my mind: I simply had to do high tea at 12 Apostles Hotel before the new year. I laugh now as I think about it… I only tried it out 5 days ago.
The location needs no introduction. The closer we got to the hotel, our excitement heightened with each breathtaking view of Camps Bay and beyond.
A booking for two for Tea by the Sea at the Leopard Bar meant we could enjoy our tea in the sunshine, and devour our treats indoors – on comfortable sofas with too many cushions. The halal-friendly option had salmon, cheese & tomato and egg & mayo sandwiches accompanied by two tiers of sweet treats. The verdict: I would definitely return. Even if only for their sandwiches; they were divine!
The view is gorgeous (& romantic) and would be an ideal experience for out-of-towners. I’ll let the pictures do the talking now…
I wasn’t too fond of the Leopard Bar decor but that won’t stop me from returning 🙂
