Fancy Some Tea at The Royal Piccadilly?
Scones and an assortment of pastries arranged on a tier and cups of brewed tea poured from a dainty teapot? Sounds like a delightful afternoon!
When In Manila, gone are the days of pining over afternoon tea sets that can burn a hole in the wallet. At The Royal Piccadilly, tea time is an affair meant to be enjoyed by many, without having to sacrifice quality and quantity.
Situated above Petron Katipunan, The Royal Piccadilly almost transports you to an entirely new world with its beautiful interiors. The décor is absolutely Pinterest worthy that it’s almost a crime not to take a photo of everything in sight. A charm is emanated by the café. Its posh without being pretentious, sophisticatedly chic yet warm and relaxing — a complete paradox from the usual busy streets of Katipunan.
Afternoon Tea Sunday Buffet (P350/person)
There’s a certain allure brought about by an afternoon tea experience. It’s a perfect occasion for everyone to dress up in their Sundays best, catch up over delicious bites of pastries, and live life as some of the English do, complete with a pinky up when holding a tea cup.
For their anniversary month, The Royal Piccadilly offers a special Sunday treat at 2-6pm for all afternoon tea enthusiasts. For a mere P350/person, one can already partake of a wonderful spread of cakes, cookies, and scones, with the tea of their choice. Did I mention that the café bakery also has pearl necklaces and floppy hats for you and your gal pals to wear while having tea? Quite a beau-tea-ful sight to see, I believe!
