Tea Time
By I like to eat of Kitsilano (20 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, April 20, 2011 - 3:23pm [Dine in]

This is a place you go when you want an upscale tea or an afternoon tea event. I've been a couple times. The first time my group received better service, although perhaps that was because one of my friends knew one of the servers.

The tea choices here are just amazing. There are soooo many different kinds and they will let you smell different tins to see what blend you would like. However, be careful because some of the teas aren't included in the price of your afternoon tea order and they don't tell you that while you are making your choice.

As for the food, some of the tea sandwitches, scones and other dainties you get with your tea service are excellent. Others are downright boring. The presentation was very nice, though, and they did accommodate me when I said I was a vegetarian, which is always appreciated.

The prices are high, but they are in line with other high tea/afternoon tea services at nice hotels.

I think the next time I'll go back just for tea and maybe a scone. The tea is far better than the food offerings.
