Editors’ Pick

The first lady of Waikiki cordially invites you to enjoy a spot of afternoon tea with scones and clotted cream at the Westin Moana Surfrider. Settle down amid the crisp white linens, silver and china and partake of finger sandwiches, scones and sweets. Tea on the veranda has been an institution at the Moana for more than 80 years and it’s still a popular rendezvous today for ladies’ gatherings and romantic interludes. Sure, there are other places that serve scones and cream—but you can’t top the Surfrider’s glorious veranda, the historic banyan tree or the blue beyond. For a bubbly twist on the tea, try the new Champagne option ($42.50). Raised pinkie fingers are optional. Tea is served daily, 1 to 4 p.m., last reservations at 3:30 p.m. 2365 Kalakaua Ave., 921-4600.
