This afternoon tea set comes served in an exquisite European-style rattan picnic basket to exude absolute sophistication

We’ve always thought afternoon tea sets served in tiered towers are pretty – who knew we would change our minds so quickly after seeing this?

We’ve discovered an afternoon tea set by a Dempsey restaurant, Moonbow, that is served in an exquisite European-style rattan picnic basket that is so Insta-worthy, it just makes the whole experience even sweeter.

Royal Midday High Tea

Unlike other afternoon tea sets that come served in a three-tiered tower, the afternoon tea sets offered by Moonbow looks fit for royalty. Perhaps that is also why they’ve aptly named this afternoon the Royal Midday High Tea.

There are two sets you can choose from, the Royal Mid Way of Tea (S$68.80 for two pax) and the Royal Mid Noon (S$58.80 for two pax). Both come with a different assortment of savoury and sweet treats, along with your choice of coffee or tea.

For the ultimate indulgence, order the Montelvini Prosecco, Te Mata Estate Sauvignon Blanc, or Care Tinto Roble Grenache and Syrah at S$14++ a glass.

You can choose whichever menu that speaks out to you more!

Royal Mid Noon

If the Royal Mid Way of Tea doesn’t sound that appetising to you, perhaps the Royal Mid Noon afternoon tea set will.


Look forward to savoury snacks like Sea Prawn Polenta Cheesecake, Salted Egg Choux Pastry, Forest Mushroom Canapé, and Shredded Spicy Chicken Artisan Squid Ink Bread.


After whetting your appetite, follow up with a 75% Chocolate Fudge Cake, Crème Brûlée Cempedak, and Mango Chocolate Mousse.


Additional plates

If you’re still hungry, don’t worry because there are still a number of items that you can order a la carte. After all, you’re already there. It wouldn’t make sense for you to leave even when you’re still peckish, right?

Some of the items you can order are the Moonbow Oyster Bay (S$10 per piece) with a minimum order of two pieces, Sea Urchins Crema Avocado (S$26), Garden of Escargot (S$23), Foie Gras (S$27), and Hokkaido Scallops Orzo (S$27).

You can also order additional dessert if the sweet treats offered in the set are not enough. If you liked the Crème Brûlée Cempedak, you can order another serving of it for S$18.


Otherwise, you can order the My Cendol (S$18) for something local and classic, the My Apple Crumble (S$16), or the Tea-ramisu (S$16) which features tea infused tiramisu.
