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.
Here is the nineteenth of many places that I have visited recently. La Petite Cuillere is located on Kingsway near Broadway in Mount Pleasant.
I was joined by my friend Jonathan Yee and we had their Afternoon Tea service for $24.50 per person. Huey is the owner is she is delightful, passionate not only about the teas that she serves, she is also hospitable in taking care of her guests and providing them with an experience in her ‘dining room’.
We both decided to have one of their featured Ice Teas as it was a hot summer day, the first one was a Strawberry Mint Ice Tea and then the second one was a Blueberry Ice Tea. They have a wide selection of hot teas as well as a featured Ice Tea.
A three tiered plate filled with an assortment of Sandwiches on the bottom plate was smoked salmon & spinach croissant, chicken sandwich toasted and a white bread cucumber sandwich; the middle plate featured raisin & apricot scones and chocolate chip loaf; and the top plate featured a selection of sweets, mini cupcake with rosewater icing, chocolate raspberry cake, white cake square and profiterole.
My thoughts – From the assortment of sandwiches I loved the toasted chicken sandwich followed by the smoked salmon & spinach croissant. The scones were good just wish they were a bit larger. From the selection of sweets I loved the chocolate raspberry cake the best, followed by the mini cupcake with rosewater icing, then the white cake square.
