Afternoon tea at Robinson-Bray House

I’ve been to several afternoon tea locations in Toronto [reviews here] and I’ve kinda run out of places to visit. So we’re starting to venture out of the immediate Toronto area to smaller towns.

Last month, we went to the Robinson-Bray House for afternoon tea. I’d link you to it but their website has been suspended as of today. Erm…okay.


When you enter, it is a store front with lots of random tea pots and tea accessories.


This is the view to the back room.


Just to note, when we ordered afternoon tea, they kinda need you to tell them in advance and apparently they only serve afternoon tea from 12 – 2PM. Um it’s supposed to be eaten later in the afternoon but okay, I’m not gonna argue with you. Luckily BP made reservations and they had enough prepared for the two of us.


I asked for my tea iced and here’s a trade secret, apparently, when you pour hot tea into glass, to avoid it cracking, put something metal in it. Read more about it here


So the afternoon tea came with a salad. BP HATES food with fruit but he actually liked it.


This is the first time I’ve seen this set up. Unique.


The quiches it came with were sooo good! It made us go buy quiche soon after haha. Egg salad was the best. But of course, egg salad is always the best kind of tea sandwich in my opinion.


Scones were …scones? Nothing special.
Edit – NO these were the BEST SCONES I’VE EVER HAD. These were butterscotch freaking scones. Like I still smelled like butterscotch later on. SO GOOD. SO FLAVOURFUL. BEST EVER.


Note to every tea place…can we not have any more mini cupcakes. Cupcakes aren’t that great to begin with and mini cupcakes are just hard and terrible. STOP. No me gusta. The tart was okay but it’s like…mousse on a tart shell. What can I say….

I would recommend this place if you’re in town. I think you should definitely visit Streetsville though and check out the quaint neighbourhood.

  1. This place looks adorable! Good tip about hot liquid in a glass, I’ll remember that.

    Can’t wait to go to afternoon tea with you soon! <3

    Yuks

  2. How cute! I feel like I would walk in and break everything though – all those pots and cups!

    That salad looks delicious. Actually everything on your table looks delicious, and it is all presented so pretty! I would probably love to go there, but I feel like it would be a place my fiancé would not like at all, haha.
