Afternoon Tea is taken very seriously at the Mount Nelson Hotel. With three sittings available – Morning, Afternoon and Evening – you are assured of a delectable dining experience, no matter what time you choose to visit. The morning version is lighter than the afternoon and evening classics, but all include sweet and savoury options, as well as a selection of tea and coffee.
