afternoon tea bookings

Afternoon Tea (commonly referred to as High Tea) is a British tradition of taking tea sandwiches, scones, cakes and of course, tea and is typically taken between 3 and 5 pm. Generally this was a tradition observed by the upper classes and was begun as a way to tide oneself over between lunch and what was a very late dinner (around 9 pm). It has become a lovely and elegant way to meet with friends and to slow down and enjoy a taste of British culture and a refined experience.

Afternoon Tea is by reservation only served in our beautiful Hyde Park Room. For $32.50 per person, this includes tea sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, jams and curds, cakes petit fours, and high grade loose leaf tea. Teas are served on fine china and tablecloths with florals from our in-house florist. 

Please call 314-241-6556 to inquire about availability and to make an afternoon tea reservation. Please note that your reservation cannot be held without a credit card number. Groups larger than 12, please email us about availability.
