Very nice place to chill with girlfriends over premium tea and pastries.The pretty bite-size pastries are pretty to look at and tasty to eat. If you are looking for the usual buffet spread, then you'll be disappointed. The drinks served are mainly tea so the term hi-tea here is aptly used. continue reading

Have heard much about the English Afternoon Tea at Goodwood Park L'Espresso, and we finally had the chance to try out the high tea on a week day a few months back when all three of us were free. The high tea is from 2pm to 530pm while it has two seatings on fridays and weekends. At $45++, it was a hefty price tag, but it was all worth it, as we really enjoyed the quality food and the nice ambience!Each person is entitled to two choices of drinks from the drinks menu. We all had hot tea for our first drink, and for the second drink we had a coffee, an Iced Tea and a Cold Chocolate. I like both the Iced Tea and the Cold Chocolate! The Iced Tea is really nice and refreshing! However, the Cold Chocolate proved too full for me, as I was already very full from the food. Next time, teas whether iced or hot will be a better choice.There was a wide range of food ranging from sweet to the savory, including very delicious canapes, assorted finger sandwiches, cheeses, delightful pretty cakes, bread pudding, sweet desserts, fried finger food selection, bagels, crossionts, scones, fruits, chocolate fountain, ice cream and all that you can find in a high tea buffet. But the main thing that kept us going wow was the really yummy finger sandwiches, whether you like salmon, chicken, tuna, prawn, beef, ham, foie gras etc, in smoked, raw or roast form, it's all there for you. We simply loved the delicious yet prettily and creatively decorated sandwiches and open face sandwiches. The canapes was great as well! Just by eating these sandwiches and canapes was more than enough for us, we didnt even have enough space in our stomachs to contain more food! We just wanted to keep eating and eating the sandwiches but we had our limits! Too full! We even joked that we should pack the sandwiches home! That was how nice it was to us! And not even one of us is a sandwich person, we normally like pastas more!The cakes are quite normal and average, as compared to the sandwiches and canapes. Or maybe we just loved the sandwiches too much that we couldnt really appreciate the cakes. I quite like the fried food selection too, if you feel you are having too much of the sandwiches and cakes stuff, the fried food selection can be a breather. As is the name, this high tea is the type of english afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones, cakes and the likes. If you are looking for mains or more savoury stuff, look elsewhere.I like the ambience of the place, enjoying our food and sipping our tea, and looking out at the pool view, it is all but a very relaxing and enjoyable high tea session. This is definitely a great place for high tea, and a fantastic chillout place with your friends, with quality food and nice ambience. I hope to arrange a date with my besties soon for the high tea again, for I'm missing their sandwiches really badly!  continue reading

Cafe L'espresso at Goodwood Park Hotel earned itself the title of a place for elegant teatime pursuits, and is a favorite haunt for anyone who is looking to enjoy a sumptuous high tea in this quaint, luxurious boutique hotelIt boosts of a cozy, classy environment complete with comfortable armchairs and also a poolside terrace offering gorgeous views. We sat indoors though, around the round dark-glass tables and cushy chairs. The outdoors looked very tempting, but the hot sun had us ducking back into the comfort of the cool interiors.I had my pot of tea and we were all ready to attack the food counters. We were excited about this "English high tea" concept - I was thinking all sorts of traditional English muffins and tea-cakes, scones etc. A little disappointed that there weren't much of those, but nonetheless, the overall spread was goodThere were assortments of savoury items such as mini crossant sandwiches and other finger sandwiches, Nicoise tartlets, mini shrimp patty burger, baked pork meatloaf, farm chicken in crepes, roast beef with cornichons, and open-faced sandwiches of prawns with pineapple salsa, brie cheese with grape, and smoked salmon with beetroot mousse and caviar etc.For those who like hot food, there were crispy vegetable croquettes, deep fried chicken karaage and Swedish meatballs.As for the sweets, there are an assortments of cupcakes, scones, muffins, pecan pie, lime cake, strawberry shortcake and chocolate fondue etc. For more detailed information and photos, do check out:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/01/english-high-tea-at-cafe-lespresso.html continue reading

MIL and I visited L’Espresso after our haircuts at Georgina’s which is also located within Goodwood Park. It was about 5pm; we just wanted to have a snack to fill our tummies a little before dinner. MIL was also craving for the Goodwood Park’s legendary durian mousse cake.Upon arrival, we were promptly lead to comfy leather seats in the middle of the long lobby. Alfresco seating is also available at the breezy poolside terrace.My Hot Chocolate ($8) came in a pretty pot with lovely pastel flowers. The drink itself however, was the worst hot chocolate I had till date. Diluted and bland, it tasted more like Milo. It’s shocking how such a pristine hotel can serve something of this standard.Fortunately for MIL, her beautifully presented Cafe Vienna ($9) was decent.In addition to our drinks, we also ordered cakes from The Deli. Red Velvet Cake ($6.80) was another let-down because it was too dry.Durian mousse ($11) was superb. This is pure pleasure to any durian fan. Every bite was is filled with thick durian pulp and velvety mousse. Three thumbs up!For pictures and full review, pls visit:http://madamechewy.com/2013/12/26/cafe-lespresso-and-the-deli/#more-6666 continue reading

If brunch equals to breakfast plus lunch, then high tea should be lunch plus dinner. That is why I adore high teas! And L’Espresso would be my ultimate choice for an ‘elegant teatime pursuit’ that exudes pure indulgence in a modern English, sophisticated setting.The English Afternoon Tea Buffet at L’Espresso is available daily with a single seating 2.00pm-5.30pm from Monday to Thursday and double seatings i) 12.00pm-2.30pm ii) 3.00pm-5.30pm from Friday to Sunday and Public Holidays.At S$45++ per adult and S$22.50++ per child, you will be thoroughly spoilt by what the buffet has to offer. And it’s not because it has a huge variety of food (in fact it doesn’t compared to other buffets), it’s the meticulous attention to details, for both food and service that truly exceeds my expectations.To complement your afternoon tea, you’ll get your choice of any 2 drinks from their list of fine tea selections. I picked the Prince of Kandy which tasted really light and fragrant, served in a vintage style English tea set.I love the array of pretty canapes that you can just pick up with your fingers and devour in one bite. Very exquisite and delicate, just like little works of art. In fact, I was so enthralled by the dazzling assortment of dainty sandwiches, savouries, pastries and desserts, that I just couldn’t decide where to start.Some notable highlights include the Smoked Chicken with Apple & Apricot in Crispy Shell (almost like a western style kueh pai tee), Slow-Cooked Chicken with Crepe, Foie Gras Terrine with Cranberry and Parma Ham with Melon. The ingredients are paired with one another for the right reasons. A bite of each canape seems to add a burst of different flavours in your mouth that blend together perfectly.Their croissants and sandwiches came in a delightful selection of fillings too like Roast Beef with Gherkin, Philadelphia Cream Cheese & Cucumber, Egg & Truffle Cream, Turkey Ham with Dried Pear, Smoked Pork Loin with Caramelized Onions and more. They were so good, I just had to eat one of each! (though I normally avoid carbs at buffets!)Needless to say, I went crazy with the smoked salmon (paired with salad) and cheeses (paired with crackers, dried apricots & nuts) too!For full review and pictures, please visit http://springtomorrow.com/2013/08/14/lespresso-goodwood-park-hotel/ continue reading
