Stepping into this new tea room in Montreal’s Mile End is like being on the set of Downton Abbey. The mismatched tea cups and saucers are gorgeous, the vintage style armchairs and sofas are so inviting and that chandelier will definitely leave you bouche bée. All this to say the décor is absolutely flawless. The selection of teas is plentiful, and the food is delicious. We’ve tried the lavender Earl Grey which was a dream, and I also recommend pretty much all their sandwich selection. We haven’t tried any of the desserts, but that’s what next visits are for. I can’t tell you how giddy I am now that I’ve discovered this little gem!
