While everyone else battles the queues for The Peninsula’s famous afternoon tea in The Lobby, those in the know head upstairs for light bites in a serene atmosphere at The Verandah Café. While the venue offers popular breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets, the smaller cafe outside is something of a secret gem known mostly to hotel guests, serving sandwiches and cakes from 2pm to 6pm. Comfy armchairs, charming service and a calming ambience make this a location in which you’re happy to linger. Those craving a savoury bite can try a freshly made sandwich, a croque-monsieur or quiche of the day, while the ever-changing selections on the cake trolley provide pure patisserie perfection. The Carré chocolat is a dessert dream, combining thin sheets of dark chocolate, crunchy feuilletine and chocolate crémeux for a refined blend of flavours and textures. There’s also an extensive range of artisanal teas, coffees, juices and even botanical-inspired cocktails for those seeking a refreshing respite.
