Afternoon tea ratings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I’ve been to different venues offering Afternoon tea and I’ve been asked which one I would recommend. It all really depends on what is most important to you. Do you feel that the experience of afternoon is important and value the atmosphere? Do you only care about the quality of food? What about the service?

The table below outlines my rating of every location with an Afternoon Tea offering in Toronto. If you’re looking for High Tea (similar but different), your only option is MoRoCo Chocolat. Windsor Arms also offers a Twilight Tea which could be considered High Tea….

Price
These numbers are based off their menu as of January 2015. This is for their afternoon tea menu for a pot of tea, sandwiches, scones, and sweets. It does not include champagne or any extras.
Shangri-la afternoon tea price does not include the tea. The teas range from $15 – $80.
Does not reflect cost of High tea/Twilight tea at MoRoCo Chocolat and Windsor Arms. Please check respective websites.

If you disagree with my ratings then you disagree. These are based on my personal experience.
