Notch 8 Restaurant: Afternoon Tea

In the heart of downtown lies one of the most iconic hotels in Vancouver, Hotel Vancouver – or as it’s currently branded, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. We came by for Afternoon Tea in early December only to find out that all of the roads were closed due to the annual Santa Claus Parade and we were on the wrong side of West Georgia Street.

La Petite Cuillere – Afternoon Tea

It’s been too long since we’ve had Afternoon Tea. I’m not sure what I enjoy more… trying the different types of teas or the selection of tiny pastries and sandwiches. La Petite Cuillere is the location of our latest foray and is located on Kingsway, near French Made Baking (I wonder if they get their macarons from FMB?)

Globe@YVR – Afternoon Tea at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport

Afternoon Tea used to be something that you could only find in the swankiest downtown hotels. At some point, a number of bakeries and tea shops started offering afternoon tea service… now you can find it pretty much anywhere.

Secret Garden Tea Company – Afternoon Tea in Kerry’s Dale

It’s been a number of years since we last had afternoon tea at the Secret Garden Tea Company. Located in Kerrisdale (once known as “Kerry’s Dale”), this quaint little shop is hardly a secret to tea lovers.

Fish House in Stanley Park – Afternoon Tea

If you’re looking to do Afternoon Tea in Stanley Park, where should you go? Your first guess would probably be at The Teahouse in Stanley Park… actually, I’m not even sure if they do Afternoon Tea at The Teahouse. No, this post is on Afternoon Tea at the Fish House in Stanley Park.

Xi Shi Lounge – Afternoon Tea

Xi Shi Lounge is located in the the Shangri-La Hotel, the current tallest building in Vancouver. We stopped by for afternoon tea one Saturday morning and came to realize that this location wasn’t very busy. In fact, when we first arrived, there wasn’t any staff to greet us and we had to wait quite a while before someone returned.

Fish House in Stanley Park

Back in November of last year, we stopped by the Fish House in Stanley Park for lunch.  It’s been years since we last visited this restaurant located next to the tennis courts.  Being a touristy spot, I was worried that it would be busy at lunchtime but I guess the rain kept everyone away because we were the first ones there (a few diners did eventually arrive a bit later).

900 West Lounge – White Monkey Paw

Okay, so we’ve had one of the great DealFind coupons for Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver burning a hole in our pocket since last year.  We originally visited last summer and were quite pleased… especially with the raisin scones (see our first visit).

Secret Garden Tea Company – High Tea

Contrary to it’s name, the Secret Garden Tea Company is hardly a secret at all… in fact, it’s one of the more popular places for High Tea (or Afternoon Tea if you want to get technical).  We made reservations for noon – and, as usual with our luck, they had some trouble finding our reservations.  Fortunately, we arrived early enough that they were still able to seat us because the tables started filling up quickly as soon as we sat down.

900 West Lounge – Afternoon Tea

Like everyone else, when we saw the DealFind for Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont, we snapped it up… how can you go wrong for 50% off (usually, it’s $36 per person)?  Afternoon Tea is served in the 900 West Lounge, tucked behind the Lobby Lounge on the main floor of Hotel Vancouver.  Since we went on a weekday, it wasn’t very busy and it was more intimate that I was expecting.
