Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea from Mountain Thyme

Mountain Thyme is offering a traditional British afternoon tea experience in Verbier for the summer season. This elegant spread is the ultimate treat, whether enjoyed in the comfort of your chalet or outside on the terrace with spectacular mountain views. You can really wow your guests with delectable bites of pretty cakes and macarons, dainty finger sandwiches and even discuss the best way to eat your scone: jam then cream, or cream then jam!

 
There are lots of options for enjoying this beautiful meal. Mountain Thyme can deliver everything ready for you to set out yourself or we can provide staff to come and serve you & your guests. We can even supply delicate vintage crockery and cake stands. Or if you prefer to 'eat out', you can hire our terrace and bring up to 20 guests to enjoy afternoon tea here at Mountain Thyme in the centre of Verbier.
