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.
