Afternoon Tea at The Cafe & Terrace @ Raffles Town Club

1 Plymouth Avenue, Level 2 Whitley Wing, Raffles Town Club, Singapore 297753
Tel: 6357 3332

Located within the quiet serenade of Raffles Town Club, The Cafe and Terrace lounge is basked in an elegance of elegance and quiet sophistication; even the guests take care to tone down their conversation in this posh lounge that looks like it has been frozen in classic timelessness.

A few steps away, one is treated to the enticing poolview, more befitting for a lovely sunny day (it was drizzling when I was there), hence we retreated into the comfort of the lounge with a window view facing the other side of bustling Dunearn Road.

Pity there was only one waitress on duty to take care of the entire lounge this afternoon, hence service was a little slow. Anyway, we had Black Coffee and Earl Grey Tea, basic drinks that somehow tasted better in this ambience.

There was no food menu available for browsing, and if I heard the waitress correctly, there is no fixed food items on a daily basis. One has to check for what's available on a daily basis - I like the air of mystery.

So we had the Club Sandwich, consisting of ham and eggs with chips on the side. As club sandwiches go, this was a rather tall / thick stack of ingredients slapped into one, held together by a long metallic pick. The flavor was quite good, and bread was soft.

Overall, it is a beautiful lounge, very comfortable for a leisurely afternoon tea session, catching up or business discussions.
