Tea in Bermuda

phelana Feb 5, 2013 09:38 AM

Coming to Bermuda for a family celebration; mom's 90th and my daughter's 21st! We love Bermuda and love afternoon tea. We will be guests at The Reefs, our go to spot. Any amazing tea recommendations? We have not been back since 08. Not interested in the Fairmont / Hamilton. Thanks!!!

    I think the Pastry Shop at Dockyard does tea. It's small and in bad weather, they have a covered area, otherwise you get to sit in the courtyard and enjoy the lovely outdoors!

    Having said that, last I went up a couple weekends ago, they were closed for a period of time. Never mind, just called, they're open 7 days a week, 9-5.

        The Dockyard pastry shop is in one of those little houses by the Keep, the sweets are good, but on a grey day it's like being in the north of England...but then I find Dockyard generally depressing.

          Agree with Athena. If it's a nice day, i like sitting outside in the little courtyard enjoying a meal and drink. I like to walk it off after by checking out the art gallery there and watching the glass blowers. It's a nice diversion for a local, get to pretend to play tourist.

      It's really hard to find afternoon tea these days, The Reefs has it, but it's not amazing. Rosedon (across from Hamilton Princess) might do it, but may be only for guests.

      I found this:

      I haven't been for tea, but I have had the lovely Lily Pulitzer iced biscuits they made for a friend's bridal shower. It's at Stewart Hall in St George's, quite a hike from The Reefs, but it looks really pretty.

        Athena, my first trip was in 1990 and I was going 2-3 times a year for a bit. So much has changed. Much appreciation for your recommendation.
