If you fancy a spot of tea, these three cafes are the place to be. They offer the best afternoon tea in KL complete with mini pastries, savoury bites and more. Sip on a unique fragrant tea as you while the afternoon away.
1. Cafe Stelle by Raffles
Why we like it: The set comes with many small sweet and savoury options.
Price: RM 50
This stylish café is the perfect place to indulge in some afternoon goodies while spending time with your loved ones. The set for two includes strawberries with dark chocolate, orange and carrot cake, fruit scones, blueberry muffins, chocolate muffins and macarons.
On the savoury end of things you'll find mini bruschettas, smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches and a golden mushroom risotto ball. This is inclusive of your choice of coffee or TWG tea. We recommend you have a light lunch and spoil yourself at tea time.

2. Carcosa Seri Negara
Why we like it: The colonial look and feel is appropriate for a spot of tea.
Price: RM 60++
You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time with the colonial look and feel of this historic mansion. From the fine china to the large cosy armchairs, Carcosa Seri Negara provides an authentic English tea experience.
Afternoon tea is served either in the plush drawing room or out on the shaded veranda surrounding the building. The set includes finger sandwiches, pastries, strawberries and cream, scones and a selection of flavoured tea. Try the grandma’s garden fruit tea for something fragrant and pleasing to the senses.

When one thinks Harrods, the words opulent and luxurious come to mind. The Tea Salon is dedicated to an impressive selection of gourmet items. The set is presented on a triple tiered tray filled with scones, assorted pastries, and a selection of sandwiches with your choice of coffee or tea.
