Missoni Afternoon Tea Review

Hi everyone,

So after the treatments that we indulged in at the Missoni Hotel Edinburgh, we were then booked in for afternoon tea at half past four. The bar area is absolutely stunning. Look how beautiful the light arrangements are. I love how it is lit up as it creates a relaxing atmosphere and I adore the lunar phase photos on the back wall.

The Afternoon Tea that we opted for was £20.50 per person and you can choose from a wide selection of hot drinks. I chose hot chocolate at first and then coffee thereafter. You also have the option of Prosecco for £26 each, a cocktail for £28.50 each, or Prosecco and chocolate dipped strawberries for £29.50.

The waitress stated that the chef recommends that you eaten the certain food in a particular order so we started off with this mini homemade amaretto ice cream which was delicious.

We were served by such a friendly waitress whose serving and personable skills were top notch. The Afternoon Tea arrived on a three tiered cake stand with the sandwiches on the bottom, scones in the middle and selection of desserts on the top row.

 The sandwiches we received were; cheddar cheese with pumpkin chutney, ciabatta with cured pork, rocket salad and balsamic onions, foccacia with mustard cress and egg mayonnaise and Scottish smoked salmon with soft cheese and chives. My favourites were the cheese and egg sandwiches.

These were the homemade scones with clotted cream and Missoni jam which were delicious.

For the desserts we received salted caramel macarons, frozen mocha ganache with white chocolate topping, chestnut cake and a delicious marshmallow each.

The waitress asked us if we were stopping in the hotel and I said that we had been to the spa for treatments and we were celebrating our Birthdays' and our engagement. She then brought us over the most amazing looking cocktail I have ever laid my eyes upon. The fruit was fresh and delicious and so was the cocktail. How lovely of her to do that!

We felt truly special here and this is the poshest Afternoon Tea I have ever had! The food quality and different tastes blows others completely out of the water.

Love Laura xoxo
