The BEST Afternoon Tea in Toronto

Best-Afternoon-Tea-Toronto-Lisa-Ng

Since Mother’s Day is once again fast-approaching, I thought I would re-share my round-up of the best places for afternoon tea in Toronto. If you’re looking to get a reservation for Mother’s Day – STOP whatever you’re doing and call now! Places book up extra fast and if you can’t get the Sunday, consider meeting on the Saturday instead. Enjoy!

One of my favourite traditions for Mother’s Day is going for afternoon tea in Toronto with my sister and Mom along with Paul and his Mom. It’s a nice way for our parents to get caught up and a fun way to spend the afternoon together. We usually spoil our Moms with a small gift as well – see our 2014 + 2015 + 2016 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas & Guide. But the point is – our presence together is the present and it’s the small, yet precious moments that we will look back on and cherish.

I love trying new brunch spots in the city, so when the opportunity came to try the newly launched Soul Brunch at Drake One Fifty, I knew I couldn’t resist. Having frequented the popular weekend brunch at the Drake Hotel a few times (whose famous blueberry scones have a following of their own), I had yet to visit their sister restaurant.
