Join us for our Easter Fete Buffet on Sunday April 17th, from 10am-5pm. Featuring live music, complimentary glass of champagne and a festive ambiance.

We are open daily for Breakfast (6:30-10 am), traditional Afternoon Tea (10:30 am-4 pm), and Evening Cocktails and Lite Fare (5 pm-10 pm). At this time all reservations available are only for our Afternoon Tea. Availability for our Evening Cocktails and Lite Fare is on a walk-in basis.

The Palm Court’s Afternoon Tea truly shines with custom tableware and china, a fragrant tea list steeped in history, and of course, a bit of precocious Eloise too. Guests are invited to nibble on our in-house Pastry Chef’s unique culinary offerings like delicate finger sandwiches, buttery scones and elegant desserts, which are all made from scratch with local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients.

For parties larger than 6 guests, please send an inquiry email to PalmCourt.PLZ@Fairmont.com

The Palm Court has given this fashionable drink a bit of a makeover. Grey Goose L'Orange and Cointreau are impressed with fresh lime and white cranberry juice to give a new twist to this 80's classic

                                                                                                                                                                                            • Sidecar$28.00

Here at the Plaza Hennessy VSOP cognac, Cointreau and fresh lemon juice are served in a martini glass with a sugar crusted rim to make this classic cocktail

                                                                                                                                                                                              • Fiesta Naranja$28.00

Let this festive blend of Solerno Blood Orange liqueur and Tres Greneraciones Plata tequila take you back to old Mexico during the dead of winter. Shaken together with freshly squeezed lime and blood orange juice with just a taste of organic agave nectar added to deliver a respite from old man winter's grasp, if even for just a few sips

To add touch of sweetness, we use upstate New York honey and balance it out with fresh lemon and then complete it with a honeycomb on a stick

                                                                                                                                                                                                  • Cherrywood$28.00

The sandwich selection was terrible. What happened to the traditional offerings? Scones were dry! Cream, lemon custard and jam tasted like a refrigerator. Sweets were weird. Too fussy. Service was amazing. Champagne was ice cold and delicious. Overall very disappointing

I was disappointed however by the price of the afternoon tea. Even in luxury places in London, you are still able to order multiple different teas (we were told only one each) and also are able to request more sandwiches if you like (again we were told we were entitled to only what was served). It was a lot of money for not much substance.

Service terrible for a five star hotel. Food uninspiring bread on one sandwich was stale. No point in complaining it would have been wasted. The whole afternoon tea with two small glasses of champagne at $30 each, came to $280.00. No tip left. Not good value at all. Overpriced. Really disappointed.

My mother and I ordered the Manhattan and the Plaza. I’m vegetarian and they accommodated me and made amazing sandwiches and a stuffed pepper. The price is along with the experience and I plan to do this again next yet. It was lovely. Our waitress, Mary Alice, was kind , knowledgeable and attentive. Can’t wait to go again!

Overpriced.Food was good but not outstanding.At those prices, an additional glass of champagne would have been welcomed.

The service was not explained because they wanted us to simply spend way too much - very confusing. I have been to other high teas (the Ritz etc) and not had the lack of non-sweet foods and crazy gas lit service.

The interior is majestic, the staff - most attentive and kind, and the menu- exquisite! It was a luxurious immersion for the senses. The tea sandwiches and vast array of decadent treats, accompanied by a varied tea assortment was just the right amount. We left satisfied but not overstuffed. The price is a bit steep but worth it for a one-of-a-kind indulgence.

But our waitress was pretty rude. We asked him couples questions about the menu he was not even able to respond. Wasn’t sure if he understood us. Also when I was trying to go the restroom and did asked the security guy where is it - he looked at me and said “ it’s only for customers” . It was pretty mean to me. Looks like if are you not rocking your Birkin bag be ready to get some attitude.
