Reading Time: 2 minutesWe love Hong Kong’s cuisine, but for those homesick moments, or simply when you feel like something a bit more British, there’s afternoon tea. For tea, scones and pastries, or a local spin on British cuisine, Hong Kong has many options. Depending on their age, kids will love spending an afternoon tucking into indulgent treats, as well. Here’s our pick of the best family-friendly afternoon teas in Hong Kong.
Aqua luna Afternoon Tea at Sea
Hop on board the aqua luna for an incredible 10-dish afternoon tea, featuring favourites from the Dim Sum Library as well as desserts from aqua luna. Kids will love the food and exploring the open sea!
Depart from Tsim Sha Tsui at 15:30-17:00.
Price: $399 per person (add $100 for a glass of Veuve Clicquot Champagne). Minimum two people required, one soft drink included.

Located on Main Street, U.S.A, the Plaza Inn is offering something that kids (and probably adults) will love: Disney-inspired all-day Cantonese cuisine. Enjoy a delicious dim sum platter and fruit juice. The Cha Chat Room also offers a Queen Elsa Royal set which has dim sum classics like shrimp dumplings and barbecued pork and poached chicken.

The outside is dog-friendly, too!

Considered the birthplace of afternoon tea, celebrating the tradition since 1865, The Langham is an institution of afternoon tea in Hong Kong. Their afternoon teas are the epitome of opulence, accompanied by a live harpist and pianist for a truly elegant afternoon. Until September 31 2021, indulge in the “Salvatore Ferragamo Storie Di Seta” afternoon tea, in collaboration with the Italian luxury perfume brand, which features eight dishes. We like the pistachio-raspberry panna cotta or braised beef tea sandwich, paired with warm plain and raisin scones straight from the Palm Court bakery.
Monday to Friday 3-5:30pm
Weekends and public holidays 2:15-4:15pm, 4:30-6:30pm.
Price: $398 for one, $688 for two
