I had the honour to attend a fancy afternoon tea with a close friend last weekend at the historical Royal York Hotel. It was a very nice experience. Quality pastries, superb service, elegant decor, comfy environment, a well spent afternoon to catch up with a friend. I felt like a total noob for this, a noob coming from a suburban town to a fancy tea in downtown. At least it gave me an idea of how high class people spend their afternoon in the old days. The whole tea lasted approximately 2 hours long and I was glad that I did not have lunch beforehand because I was quite full by the end of it. Here is a breakdown of the whole afternoon set menu.
