Montreal outings - St-James High Tea

This might not be much of a big thing for most, but it’s my first time going for high tea – and it will surely not be the last! Overall it was a nice experience, with a humongous amount of tiny yummy food (that was my only meal of the day!), although it was rather expensive, especially for a poor student like me. But for the service, ambience, and the quality of the tea, it’s worth it – once in a while ^_~

I liked the tea a lot (I drink a lot of tea), and the food was certainly good, though maybe not as heavenly good as I imagined. First time trying clotted cream and scones, too, which was the best thing in the menu – the fruit jam was surely one of the best I’ve ever had! (well, I’ve only had grocery-store stuff in comparison, so…) I was slightly disappointed with the canapés, as they were just so-so, and the sandwiches were a tiny bit dry, though the flavor was pretty good (though ALL were sugar-laden).

Montreal outings - St-James High Tea

There are only three places for high tea in Montreal (that I know of anyway), and we went to Hôtel Le St-James, which happened to be the most expensive of the three (35$ or 45$, depending on which menu you choose, compared to 32$ @ Ritz-Carlton or 25$ @ Le Reine Elizabeth). Next in line is high tea @ Le Reine Elizabeth! :D
