The high tea at L'Expresso is quite an institution in Singapore. On a visit this week, it was good to see the standard of service and quality of the food are still good. Everything that we had from the buffet was tasty and nicely prepared. We particularly liked the savoury items. The famed scones were delicious though for those who... More

L'Espresso has a delightfully modern approach to the venerable tradition of English tea: rather than keep to the traditional selection of finger sandwiches and savory cakes, they have turned it into a full-fledged buffet, replete with warm dishes. Along with the old favourites you will find pork goulash, potato-wrapped prawns and a marvelous warm baked salmon in chive sauce. As... More

For high tea, you better book....it's not the usual high tea served on a multi tiered tray but actually a buffet. ... A must try and enjoy the variety of cakes, sandwiches, scones, finger food....after which no need to take dinner....and maybe no lunch either and save your space for the high tea... Enjoy.....

If you love English high tea, this is one of the place you have to visit. I love to sit here and just drink tea... It is so relaxing. Their scones are also excellent.

The high tea is buffet style and offers so much variety. Apart from the usual high tea offerings there was also some hot foods, a chocolate fountain, ice cream, cheese platters. One of the best high teas we have experienced.

We went for the 2pm afternoon tea in January 2016 for a family celebration. As we are all vegetarians and we informed the hotel beforehand at the time of making an online reservation, the hotel prepared special sandwiches, samosas and curry puffs for our table only. This is one of the few hotels which has called to confirm our reservation... More

As my mom's birthday falls on December, and yesterday (Dec 31) was the last day to use the $20 voucher from Goodwood Park Hotel, we came to this place for afternoon tea. The price includes two drinks from a range of hot and cold tea, coffee and chocolate etc. I had the hot chocolate, while my mom had the English... More

A historically interestingly building …. Went for the high tea from 2pm …. One of the best I have had in Singapore in terms of variety and value – not just cakes – good buffet spread with hot options – more like a late lunch …. Pleasant garden to stroll through too …

Rather than the usual silver rack, L'Espresso offers an enormous range of savoury and sweet food. The (fairly high) price includes two drinks from a range of hot and cold tea, coffee and chocolate. Service was excellent.
