THERE’S nothing like spending a leisurely afternoon sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee or refreshing tea with sweet and savory bites while enjoying the breathtaking view of the metro’s towering skyscrapers.
The Connect Lounge on Level 24 of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila makes this possible as it presents a refreshing new perspective on classic afternoon tea with its new selection of dessert samplers aside from the usual tea cakes and scones. Plus: Guests enjoying afternoon tea at the Connect Lounge may now choose to upgrade their choice of beverage from just tea or coffee to Champagne, wine or fresh juice.
“At the Connect Lounge, afternoon tea takes on more meaning for our guests. What we celebrate with this tradition is how we come together to make time for themselves,” says Stuart Stancombe, director for restaurants, bars and events of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila.
Afternoon Tea Delights is available from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Afternoon Tea sets are priced at Php1,100 for two persons.
