The Windsor Arms Hotel is one of the most prestigious hotel in our little neighborhood of Yorkville. The original home of TIFF and the destination hotel for celebrities, couples and dignitaries alike for when they visit Toronto.
This hotel is known for having some of the best foods in the city. The Windsor Arms Hotel is best known for their High Tea and I finally had the opportunity to go enjoy the wonderful afternoon delight with my team from work. It was absolutely delightful and even @SepKhanbeigi enjoyed it!
As a Tea Lover, I was overwhelmed with the choices of tea that they had. I wanted to order one pot of everything! They had various selections from their basic breakfast Earl Grey to an exotic chai blend and my personal favourite, “Once Upon a Tea.” (A delicious mint rooibos blend.) Overall the experience was amazing. Because we were a party of eight, we were seated in a Red Room with pictures of the Romanov family for decor. The server was pleasant and the entire experience is definitely one I would love to try again (perhaps for my birthday, anyone?)
The food was also incredibly delicious. High Tea opened with a savoury warm goat-cheese quiche. With tiers of mini-sandwiches and assorted desserts, I don’t know what more the experience needed. O! Delicious light fluffy, flaky scones. Yum! The best scones I have ever had, so good I had THREE!
If you have the chance, make a reservation and spend your afternoon sipping on tea and being transported to a different place.
