Afternoon Tea at Pinnacle Pier Lounge

Afternoon Tea is an art and should be an extraordinary experience one that you will cherish. Vancouver has some wonderful places for you to indulge in an Afternoon Tea experience. Each of the places is unique in what they offer along with the type of service and selection of sandwiches, pastries and desserts. I am on a journey around the city to find these extraordinary places.

Updated 4/17/2014 Afternoon Tea is no longer offered at this restaurant 

Here is the fourteenth of many places that I have visited recently. The Lobby in the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier is located in North Vancouver.

I had their Afternoon Tea service for $23.00 per person. First off, I chose my tea of choice from their selection of teas, I chose the “Health & Well Being” Green Tea.

3-tiered tray

A three tiered plate filled with an assortment of sweets and pastries (bottom plate) that included fruit tarts, lemon loaf, macarons, triple fudge brownie and scones. The middle plate of the tier was filled with assorted finger sandwiches which included crab and cucumber, free run omega 3 egg salad and green onion, yellow and orange tomato, and smoked salmon with capers. The top plate had double Devonshire cream and fruit preserves.

Sandwiches

Sweets

My thoughts –From the assortment of sandwiches I liked the free run omega 3 egg salad and green onion the best followed by the yellow and orange tomato.  The scones were moist and tasty with the fruit preservers and a spot of cream. From the assortment of sweets, we both loved the lemon loaf!
