For Your Next Afternoon Adventure: Oscar Wilde's High Tea Experience
Treat your partner like royalty and take them to the High Tea Experience at the extravagant Oscar Wilde bar. The dining room is everything Wilde himself would want, with Victorian wallpaper, tons of gilded-framed art, and dripping chandeliers. If you and your lover need to have at talk about honesty and The Importance of Being Earnest, it’ll go over smoothly thanks to their selection of high quality tea. The tea also includes finger sandwiches, scones, and a dessert to nibble on. P.s., be sure to mention “afternoon tea” in your reservation to get a discount.
High tea can be fancy but not always fully filling, so mosey over to Hanamizuki Cafe afterwards to relax and enjoy some light snacks. The minimalist vibe of the cafe will instantly comfort you with simple wooden counters, hanging plants, and cozy string lights. Coffee and even more tea await you here, but their specialty is rice balls, which comes in a variety of flavors from sweet potato to curry egg to unagi eel. They also have miso soups and if you’re there later in the evening, rice bowls and sake to wash it all down.
