afternoon tea in Toronto

Any suggestions for English style tea service in Toronto?
I have never been but I have heard that the Windsor Arms at Bloor ~ Bay is quite nice for afternoon tea...
I've heard that the King Edwards Hotel just a block east of King on Yonge does an excellent tea service.
Pangaea at Bay and Bloor also have a tea service.
I haven't tried both- keep meaning to but haven't gotten around to it. Opinions wanted on either, or some other place!
King Edward Hotel on King East of Yonge does indeed have a nice one. I believe it's located in Cafe Victoria where the ambience is incredible - very ornate decor. I like the option of having just finger sandwiches (I'm a savoury type), sweets or both. The clotted cream is to die for.
Hotel Intercontinental on Bloor west of Avenue serves tea. It's a cosy place - try to get seated near the fireplace.
Four Seasons Hotel on Avenue north of Bloor also has a nice tea just off the lobby. They come around and serve you a limited number of finger sandwiches though. They do not come on a tiered silver tray like the other two places mentioned above.
I heard the Windsor Arms Hotel off Bloor between Bay and Yonge has a good tea, but I have never been. There's the Old Mill on Bloor West - a beautiful country inn and spa tucked away with ruins of an old mill to explore on site.
FYI- A recent article in either the Post or the Globe suggested afternoon tea at the Windsor Arms, the King Eddie and the Royal York.
