I went to this place with my girlfriend. This is the best high tea I ever had after I came to Canada, would definitely come back again. I spent the whole afternoon here and it was really a good time for me.
The High Tea at the Prince of Wales has all of the features that you look for: lovely treats, great tea, and lovely venue. The serving staff is a little disorganized, however but I would still highly recommend this location and their High Tea.
Enjoyed the ambience, especially on a cold gray day. Scones were outstanding. Sweet options less so, partly because only one person liked coconut, and the vanilla items were bland. Sandwiches were so-so; surprised that vegetarian option at tea was so skimpy (only cucumber). Suggest that the chicken salad be put in a sandwich or croissant and not in puff pastry because the filling is too heavy. Tea choices were delicious.
The place was horrible! We had reservations for 1 PM, there was no hostess to greet us we waited 15 min and then had to find someone from the hotel, to find her...she was in the back socializing.
The sandwiches were soggy and old at least a day. The cutlery was dirty and the tea wear was stained. The silverware was full of detergent stains....
To top it off, there was a huge thick cobweb above my head that was going to fall at any moment.
The waitresses did not introduce herself, and her clothing had bleach stains on it.
The hotel did not have fine bone china, there for the cups were heavy....they us some cheap ware. They tried to make it an “English High Tea” it was not!
Lovely afternoon tea experience :)
I was impressed by the quality of the tea (and the good size of the tea pot), the food, and the creme fraiche!!
Our time at the Prince of Wales for afternoon tea was an absolute delight. The chef was very accommodating and responsive to dietary restriction. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, willing to give his opinion, yet listening to what the client was looking for, outstanding service. The afternoon tea was good, albeit the fact the devon/clotted cream was not authentic as it is very difficult to get large quantity in Canada and the replacement they use is more than adequate. I would definitely recommend the Drawing Room to anyone looking for a nice afternoon tea.
My grandmother, aunt, sister and I took my mom for afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday. The staff were so friendly and very accommodating - we had to move chairs around a few times to make sure my nana was comfortable. We had a very lovely and special afternoon that we will remember for years to come!
Had a great afternoon having high tea. Food was amazing as was the tea, service, and ambiance. Would definitely recommend.
Disappointed in selection of teas (need more choices of unflavoured black teas). Ambiance, service and decor were lovely, very photogenic! Pumpernickel bread was dry on the sandwiches.
Grace our server was amazing. So friendly and helpful and a delight. :). Ty Grace 😄. We enjoyed ourselves for afternoon tea - loved ito
