No 1 Waitanyuan

Desserts in The Bund & People's Square

Nowhere's more fitting for a spot of high tea than the former British Consulate. Enjoy cucumber sandwiches, scones and English breakfast tea overlooking magnificent gardens with a Pudong skyline backdrop. The three-tiered platters are loaded with gourmet cakes and finger sandwiches, served with antique silver cutlery and teapots. Reserve a day or two in advance to get a garden table.

Afterwards stroll the gardens to admire the architecture. Waitanyuan, an exclusive club, is also a restaurant that serves dim sum for lunch.
