Traditional Afternoon Tea
A king-sized afternoon of tea and scones
The Splendide Hotel once again offers in its lounge the appointment that has been upheld for over a century with its Traditional Afternoon Time. In pure English style, dedicated to the people of Lugano and all the Ticino inhabitants who love local products and traditional British delicacies.
At the beginning of the 20th century they were princes and monarchs, then entertainers and intellectuals. Today everyone can carve out an afternoon within these historic walls to savour an experience of yesteryear, with the skill and expertise of contemporary confectionery.
Also this year the Traditional Afternoon Tea returns to the panoramic tables of our Belle Epoque Bar, an unmissable event, especially in this season that encourages us to enjoy more intimate and family gatherings. If, in fact, as British customs tell us, afternoon tea is a ritual to be consumed with friends, the armchairs and sofas of the Splendide Hotel invite you to an intimate afternoon filled with delightful treats.
For the Splendide, tea time is certainly not a novelty, but rather a real centuries-old tradition. In fact, the rite of tea combined with sweet and savoury flavours has been consumed on its sofas every autumn and winter since the early 1900s.
12 different types of tea, each with its own personality and originating from China, Japan, South Africa or the peaks of the Himalayas. All selected to ensure you enjoy a traditional experience worth remembering.
Available daily from November 2021, from 3:00pm until 5:30pm
