I’d like to turn this post into a compendium of Vancouver high tea, but I know that the list is nowhere near comprehensive. Please help me add to this selection so that I may evaluate these offerings for you, as the compulsion to sip tea and nibble dainties hits me again and again. Feel free to raise a hand to join me on these adventures, too.

  1. Alert Bay is the first place I ever saw killer wealhs! I haven’t been back for years, what a cool little town. Thanks for showing it as a guess that location last month.

  2. I do not see many comments here, it means you have not many visitors. I know how to make your page go viral. If you want to know just search in google for:

  4. Thank you for this list. Friends and I are making a tour of tea houses in Vancouver. Our absolute favouite so far is La Petite Cuillere on Kingsway and W 8th in Mt Pleasant. Closed Tuesdays.

  5. JaneAnn: Applewood sounds great. I’ll have to pop in for a try of their Harvest tea soon. I have family nearby and it’d be nice to take them for tea.

  6. Hi Marion,

    Thanks for the tip on White Heather! I’ll add to the list. I’ve recently heard updates that Empress is getting less stuffy, but prices aren’t going down along with that 😉

  7. Had a GREAT ‘Scarey” time with two girl friends at Applewood Tea Room and Bakery a try. (64th Ave & 120th/Scott Road) – for Halloween. We dressed up as witches , with brooms in hand, for our delightfl day. By hte end of tea, we were stuffed and not even able to finish thier Harevest tea… the best? ..hummm, I’d believe we’d all three say it was all great. I however was very fond of the scones WOW.
    The Staff were fun, warm and helpful-they took our dress up in stride. *Smile*
    Loved the quaint atmosphere , very relaxing and I can say with great certainty – We’ll all be back.

  8. Check out the White Heather next time you’re in Victoria. Miles better (and cheaper) than the Empress. Less ‘fancy’ than Secret Garden but good value, tasty sweets and better sandwiches.

  9. If you are in Surrey/Delta, give Applewood Tea Room and Bakery a try. (64th Ave & 120th/Scott Road) It’s like Afternoon Tea served by your quaint grandmother; come to think of it, their by-line is, “…Just like Grandma’s”. Over 50 different teas including decaf black tea. Don’t forget to take more scones home with you! http://www.applewoodcountry.ca

  10. Marian, thanks for posting your recommendation! I take my mom and mother-in-law for afternoon tea for their birthdays every year and we’ve been to most of the places you mention. Next week it’s that time again and I was looking for a new place to take them. I’m looking forward to trying Salmon House on the Hill!

  11. My daughter & I go for afternoon tea at least every couple of months – we’ve been to the Secret Garden, Fish House @ Stanley Park, Fairmont Downtown & Fairmont @ the Airport, Bacchus, Urban Tea Merchant, and a whole lot of others(here, in Victoria & in England). Today we found a real gem – Salmon House on The Hill!! The food was amazing & beautiful beyond belief – the pastry chef’s creations were so fantastic. And by far the best deal/value we’ve had – regularly $27.50 per person or two for $50 – but right now they have a special $22.50 per person.
