Any tea rooms near the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto please? Any must do lunch spots for two elderly ladies?

    What about the Royal York itself? I've never been but my step-mom has and said it was very good. Also, until September 30th they are doing a tour 'n' tea for their centennial. See http://www.nowtoronto.com/issues/2007...

      The Royal York itself is a nice place for afternoon tea. This summer they've got a special one on that includes a tour of their herb garden on the roof (though I'm sure that's optional if the ladies prefer just tea in the restaurant). Here is an article featuring it:


      Another option is the King Edward Hotel, only a few blocks from the Royal York.

        The Royal York does a very nice afternoon tea themselves. Normally, it's a bit on the pricey side, but to mark their 100th year, they're doing a Centennial Tea all summer that is only $19.07, which includes a tour of their rooftop garden where many of the herbs used by the hotel kitchens are grown.
