If you are looking for a laid-back place to chill on a nice afternoon without putting a dent on your wallet, look no further than Fosters, an English Rose Cafe at the charming Holland Village. The homely café has a wonderful afternoon tea set that should keep your tummy happy and satisfied for hours.

Word has it that Fosters serves the cheapest high tea in Singapore! That being said, this isn’t the traditional high tea with mini cakes served on three-tiered racks, but a much simpler affair of baked pastries.


The Devonshire cream tea set provides you with a couple of scones, finger sandwiches and fruit cake.

Devonshire cream tea set

3 – 6pm daily

Seen here are two sets combined on one plate. The best of the lot are the scones, freshly baked and served warm from the oven.

Butter, cream and strawberry jam

If you like, you can slather on butter, cream or the home-made strawberry jam that is most delicious.

Finger sandwiches

Other than the scones, the fruit cake and finger sandwiches are not much to shout about. But at that price, who can complain?

Lavazza coffee

To wash down the pastries, the afternoon tea set also includes a choice of tea or coffee.
