For afternoon refreshments, you may drop by the Connect Lounge, located at the 24th floor. Again, the draw here is the breathtaking view of the metropolis, which you can gaze at while enjoying their Afternoon Tea Set (P788) which is available everyday from 2pm-6pm.
The three tier set consists of the days selection of in-house pastries and baked goods, delectable finger sandwiches, and a medley of the desserts. The kitchen revolves the entrees allowing the guests to feel like every tea set is a new experience whenever they order it.
Before digging in to the Tea Set items, you start off by cleansing your palate with an Amuse Bouche Mango and Raspberry Sorbet, encased in white chocolate. And of course, the star of the set is Connect Cafe's vast selection of premium teas.
I lucked out with the day's selection of baked goods, as we were served some delicious, buttery Scones, and flakey, juicy, Sausage rolls. The finger sandwiches consisted of a nice variety as well, as it included Smoked Salmon, Farmers Ham, and Salami.
From my experiences in Cucina, I knew that we were in for a treat with the desserts, and I was not mistaken, as everything they served was exceptional. The selection included cream based treats to go with some chocolate delights.
If you're looking for a spectacular view of the metropolis, and while enjoying delicious teas and pastries, I highly reccomend visiting Connect Lounge.
