Last time I had an afternoon tea at the Goodwood was 12 years ago. We used to come here almost every weekend and I Ioved it. After visiting last week I am happy to say that the Goodwood's afternoon tea only got better. Great selection of everything, better than the Ritz in my opinion.

Go there, this so much fun!

I love to come to L'Espresso. Firstly is the ambience and secondly the food. They have a wide selection of cakes, desserts, chocolates, canapés, savoury food and many more. Reservations are definitely a must during weekend. For $49 (before GST) it is definitely on the high side. If you are planning to drive, never park at Goodwood Park as the parking fee is exorbitant. Park at Far East Shopping Centre instead.

Enjoyable high tea buffet with 2 choices of beverage. Pick seating outside on the terrace with the pool nearby. There is a vast selection of food items for any palate and all are well made with attention to the fine details. Service is good.

The high tea at L'Expresso is quite an institution in Singapore. On a visit this week, it was good to see the standard of service and quality of the food are still good.

Everything that we had from the buffet was tasty and nicely prepared. We particularly liked the savoury items. The famed scones were delicious though for those who are fans of the traditional scone, the ones served here are a little too breadlike and do not have the crumbly biscuit texture that Mary Berry would be looking out for.

The lobby lounge setting with lots of natural light and a view of the pool add to the enjoyment of an afternoon spent here. As does the traditional vintage look crockery. Charming.

L'Espresso has a delightfully modern approach to the venerable tradition of English tea: rather than keep to the traditional selection of finger sandwiches and savory cakes, they have turned it into a full-fledged buffet, replete with warm dishes. Along with the old favourites you will find pork goulash, potato-wrapped prawns and a marvelous warm baked salmon in chive sauce. As for the main event, one is permitted to select two drinks and we found our choices to be excellent: English Breakfast and Sencha teas which were light to the palate and delicate of aroma. Furthermore the house coffee is full of flavour and not overpowering. If there is one thing to fault in this experience, it is the service. One cannot escape the impression that the servers are inexperienced, with our request for sweetener causing confusion among the wait staff, as well as the inordinate wait to be noticed by folks with harried expressions. If they can get their act together in this aspect, then the L'Espresso team will have created a truly unique experience.
