Afternoon Tea at the Prince of Wales Hotel

Several months ago, Phyllis, The Relevant Tea Leaf Blog, told me
to be sure to visit Niagara-on-the Lake (NOTL) when we visit Niagara Falls.
Thank you, Phyllis!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day in NOTL. 

I reserved Afternoon Tea at the historic Prince of Wales Hotel prior to leaving home.
Afternoon tea is served daily in the Victorian Drawing Room from noon to 6:00 p.m.
We arrived for the noon tea.
We were seated in the conseratory looking out on Queen Street. 
We all chose the Prince of Wales Tea which included
 a delicious selection of fine Canadian Cheeses and fresh fruit.
 Next, our server brought the three tiered server.
 
Sandwiches below included:
 a cucumber roll up, egg salad on marbled bread, ham and cheese with chutney on wheat,
 and salmon on white.  
A large  scone made with jasmine infused sultanas
 served with butter, strawberry jam, and mock clotted cream
The pastries included a lemon tart, a chocolate dipped cookie and a
layered cake.  AJ loved the large fresh black berries.

You can see the conservatory where we had tea at the far left of this photo.

What an elegant treat! The dainties are so pretty and so beautifully arrayed, on the tall server just like mine somewhere in the dish closet.

What IS that small (orange?) item beside the scones? It must be a pastry, but looks like a thin chocolate wafer with a dim sum dumpling atop.

I love being along on your adventures!

Rachel, That is a chocolate "something" next to the scones. It had orange "something" in the center with orange zest on top. Sorry, I don't remember what it was called.

Perhaps if Mary Jane reads this, she will know. She recently visited the Prince of Wales with the traveling teapot.

I've been to Niagara-on-the-Lake, but not the Prince of Wales Hotel. Their afternoon tea looks wonderful.

Hi Linda,
So nice that you could experience tea at The Prince of Wales! It is indeed not to be missed when visiting that area.
The chocolate dessert was Chocolate Mousse flavored with Grand Marnier on a Chocolate Wafer.
You had quite an adventure on your trip!
