Festive Afternoon Tea in Vancouver

Personally, I think it is always a great time to enjoy a fancy afternoon tea in Vancouver. Current world circumstances, however, have made this rather decadent experience seem more enticing than ever!

While there are at least half a dozen charming establishments offering afternoon tea in Vancouver, the 3 featured in this post are all conveniently located within the downtown core.

1. H Tasting Lounge – Westin Bayshore

1601 Bayshore Drive – (604) 691-6962

Afternoon Tea Vancouver

When you step into the beautiful Art Deco H Tasting Lounge at The Westin Bayshore, you can’t help but feel like you are a world away! This lovely establishment offers an afternoon tea menu on weekends that changes with the seasons for $55 per person.

The little bites might include: truffle egg salad pinwheels; matcha dacquoise; quiche lorraine; new york cheesecake with raspberry gelee, and more. What is even more impressive, however, is the gorgeous presentation. Take a peek below!

2. Fairmont Vancouver Afternoon Tea

Fairmont Vancouver Afternoon Tea at Notch 8

Often winning accolades for the best afternoon tea in Vancouver, the tea service at the Fairmont’s beautiful Notch 8 restaurant feels very much like a royal affair.

Along with a wide selection of teas (Goddess Oolong, Joie de Provence…how to choose?), their Afternoon Tea Menu includes freshly baked buttermilk and cranberry scones, a selection of delectable tea sandwiches (asparagus, egg, prime rib and smoked salmon), a beautiful macaron, tiny cakes and so much more!

The afternoon tea service at the Fairmont Vancouver is available on weekends with seatings at 12pm and 2pm ($69 for adults, $34.50 for children 12 and under).
