Tucked off to the side of the hotel’s lobby, and impeccably dressed in its cushioned chairs and wood paneling stands Conrad Centennial’s Lobby Lounge – an oasis of old world charm, sophistication, and delicious food. On weekdays, they offer an afternoon tea set that includes a selection of sandwiches, pastries and sweets. The range of delicacies include mini-smoked salmon bagels with cream cheese and capers, aged cheddar sandwiches with pickled onions, green tea mousse biscotti, and freshly baked soufflés, all served alongside an endless flow of coffee and tea.
On weekends though, is when the space explodes into seemingly endless lines of food, with buffet counters for sushi, hot pastries, desserts, fresh fruit, dim sum; an overwhelming smorgasbord of tastiness! Much like their other buffet at Oscar’s, the Lobby Lounge’s weekend ‘Afternoon Delight’ delivers quantity, AND quality.
Also, if the buffet spread somehow wasn’t enough, it also includes a refillable three-tiered stand with all your classic sandwiches, and scones that are served separately.
Afternoon tea is, was, and always will be one of the best ways to indulge yourself. And at the Lobby Lounge, they wouldn’t have it any other way. (May 2013)
