Afternoon Tea in downtown TO? Advice please!


I am an English girl with an upcoming birthday and am looking for recommendations and suggestions for a good old fashioned Afternoon Tea.

I have heard that the Fairmount and King Edward are decent - what's your opinion?



King Edward Hotel
37 King St E, Toronto, ON M5C, CA

  1. Here are a few threads that may help. I think it depends on the type of experience you're looking for. But it seems like for an old fashioned experience, the King Eddy, Royal York (Fairmount) and the Windsor Arms are the way to go.

    And bless you for calling it afternoon tea. :)

        I had a great experience at the Windsor Arms, for the record.

      2. Have been to the Windor Arms, King Eddy, Park Plaza and Royal York. The WIndor Arms by far is the best atmosphere and overall tea experience. Have been back over and over. Love it!!!

        1. By far, the King Edward Hotel - great tea, beautiful ambiance, and wonderful food. I've also been to tea at the Four Seasons, the Royal York, and the Hyatt, so I've been around a few places.


          1. My pref is the Windsor Arms hands down.

            1. I prefer the four seasons. I have also heard this place is good:
