A friend and I are planning a "girls' weekend" in Montreal for late May. We would like to do a full afternoon tea (i.e., finger sandwiches, sweets, scones, clotted cream, proper tea service) and my research seems to indicate that there are only three places in Montreal that offer this, all hotels: the Queen Elizabeth, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Hotel St-James.
I'm looking for some comments on the quality of food and service at these locations. (I did find one review of the RC which was quite disparaging but it was from 2000 so it's a bit dated :)
Also we are planning on having dinner at the Beaver Club so I was leaning away from having tea at the QE...but if it's really the best of the three, I could be persuaded to go there.
Any partakers of afternoon tea out there?
