Best Tea Time in the city.
This was the third time I visited and I am glad to say that the service and food has been consistently great. The only shortfall that I see with the Café is that since they do offer group seating (there was a table of 20+ women who thought they were at their own private reception hall) the noise can be too loud as they don't have a closed off or seperate room for those groups.
I must mention that the hostess acknowledged that there was too much noise and our table was changed.

very good food, the service
very good food, the service was a bit too slow, especially for lunch, but the experience is always a pleasant one. A nice gesture from the waiter ho brought macarons to one of the guests who was celebrating her birthday.

Great experience overall
Fantastic food and great service. Especially good for high tea. It would be nice if they had more lighter options available for lunch, as the table d'hôte is quite heavy. But nonetheless the food, the service, and the atmosphere were exquisite.

Thankfully,not a traditional bunch
Say goodbye to those noisy all you can eat brunches and go to Café Europea for a nice , quiet (at least on Saturday) brunch with refined food that will leave you feeling satisfied but not stuffed to the gills like most brunches. Desert was a bit much but the rest, including the excellent service, was perfect!

Le service n'était pas à la hauteur de votre restaurant.
Serveuses pas à la hauteur
Réservation sur le site du resto seulement en anglais
Déception presque totale lors de notre visite de ce dimanche. On ne se croyait pas au Birks Café.

pleasant sunday brunch...
... in a very elegant decor, excellent food, well presented.
Unfortunately too many chipped dishes hence not acceptable for such a prestigeous environment! Must be fixed asap.

Just for the ambiance and decoration it is worth while.

Très bien apprécié notre visite.
Le point négatif est le site de Opentable unilingue anglais. Vous devriez faire un effort pour votre clientèle francophone, les réservations ainsi que ce site qui solicite notre opinion sur notre visite.

Afternoon tea is a treat
Afternoon tea at Birk's Cafe par Europea is a real treat. The tea list is filled with delicious choices and are all perfectly steeped. The scones with Devonshire cream are heaven. The mini-sandwiches and finger appetizers were small unique gourmet bites. Even the cucumber sandwich was well above the traditional standard by adding shrimp and an herbed jelly garnish. The desserts were simply amazing. Best of all, the chef was able to provide a gluten-free and a vegetarian tray on request, so our entire group could enjoy the afternoon tea experience.
We were all delighted with the experience!

Voilà qui résume au mieux atmosphère de ce café. Tout est délicat, la présentation, les goûts des plats depuis les petites attentions servies au début jusqu'aux mignardises si bien présentées pour le dessert. Le café Birks est comme un éden en plein centre ville, je le recommande sans hésiter pour souligner une occasion spéciale. C'était l'anniversaire d'une amie et elle a reçu une jolie boîte de macarons, c'est un beau geste qui illustre parfaitement la philosophie de cet endroit.
