Olives & Plates is one of our long-standing favourite cake spots in the city. Their venue at the WITS Club holds special memories of impromptu brunches with friends and bunking second year English Lit for a slice of divine carrot cake. As such, we were delighted when we discovered that Olives & Plates now hosts a monthly high tea experience. It's all the things we've come to know and love about Olives & Plates, with the added flair of an exclusive high tea event. Read on to find out more about this signature event and how to secure yourself a booking. We hope to see you there!
Cape Dutch Excellence
Olives & Plates WITS Club is truly unique. The venue's Cape Dutch style architecture and décor is awe-inspiring and certainly leaves a lasting impression on its guests. You'll feel like you've been transported to a whole new world as you dine beneath the shady oak trees and look out onto the lush rose beds. The restaurant's interior is equally as whimsical, with its cosy fireplace and opulent furnishings. Whether you choose to sit outdoors or inside the restaurant, you're sure to have a magical dining experience. Here's what you can expect from the high tea event:
You'll be welcomed to the high tea event with a complimentary glass of bubbly, a macaron and a host of warm smiles. Guests are then seated at beautifully decked out tables. Bouquets of fresh flowers perfume the air, creating a touch of elegance and romance. Once you've been seated at your table you will be served an array of seasonal savoury treats. Served on individual high tea stands, there's everything from traditional cucumber sandwiches to yummy smoked salmon bagels. It's the perfect start to your high tea tasting adventure. Paired with your choice of imported German tea or freshly brewed coffee, this is a high tea unlike any other.
The sweets are served last, allowing you to savour every sweet morsel. Dive into a selection of pastries, puffs, tartlets, and mini cakes. We can't think of a better way to spend a weekend morning than this. Booking is essential, so make sure to secure your spot well in advance.
