Enjoying The Cellars-Hohenort High Tea

Cellars-Hohenort High Tea

I’m slightly obsessed with High Teas. I mean, what more could a girl want? Dressing up, eating little cakes, sipping tea, munching on cucumber sandwiches, and feeling superbly fancy … This is definitely the perfect day out. Particularly if you’re experiencing the Cellars-Hohenort High Tea.

I Love Foodies has been to Cellars-Hohenort numerous times, and it’s definitely one of my personal favourites. The gardens are beautiful, the interior setting is divine, and it’s literally like stepping into an entirely different world, away from the stress of city living.

Welcome to Cellars-Hohenort

I’ve tried their Low Carb High Tea before, which I got to enjoy in the beautiful gardens. This time, however, I joined them for a cosy lounge-vibe high tea. And what a treat. Set in an upmarket lounge with plush sofas and beautiful decorations, you’ll really feel like a queen enjoying this one!

Get Your Cellars-Hohenort High Tea Experience

The Classic High Tea comes at a cost of R245 per person, including tea and coffee, and is available daily from 15:00 – 17:00. Generally two people would share a platter, and it’s more than enough food – we couldn’t even finish ours! I’ve been to a few high teas where I was disappointed at the absurd cost and the stingy portions, so the Cellars-Hohenort High Tea definitely ranks highly in terms of value for money. I’ll definitely be back!
