Best Places for Afternoon Tea

You can sit down for afternoon high tea in Bermuda in a few great places. The British tradition of sitting down with tea, some light food, and your friends, carried over to Bermuda and it is easy to organize. Here are the best places below and if you would like to hear our opinion on planning a day, getting to any of these locations, or just general advice, send us a email and we’ll be happy to assist.

Hamilton Princess BermudaHeritage Court at the Hamilton Princess

The Heritage Court is inside the hotel to the back of the lobby with comfy chairs spread around the perimeter of the restaurant. You can look over at the koi garden just outside the windows or simply sit in any one of the plush chairs and people watch. The elegant tea is served daily between 2:30 p.m to 5:00 p.m. The hotel is going through a $70 million dollar renovation at the moment and so you can expect constant improvements at the hotel. You’ll be happy to hear that the afternoon tea will not be affected by the renovations. In the evening there is a piano player at the restaurant while every Friday there is a happy hour that has been popular for years. You’ll find yourself entertained for hours.

Homer’s Cafe

This wonderful little cafe in the beautiful Botanical Gardens offers an Afternoon Tea by reservation only. During the winter months they have a service on Sundays, but during the summer months you must call them in advance. You can find more information on their website here – Homer’s Cafe.

One thing we love about this little gem are the picnic baskets they sell. Since they are located in the Botanical Gardens it is very easy to set up a picnic through them. They will give you a basket of food fit for an English Luncheon and point you in the right direction for an afternoon in the gardens.

The Bermuda Perfumery was established in Bermuda in 1928 and then in 2004 they moved their location to the historic town of St. Georges. We would recommend you explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site before or after your tea. The area is full of history and you will really love getting lost in the small streets of St. Georges.
