Visiting Kingston and when looking for a Tea Room we noticed the O'Connor. We were so very impressed. Very charming room and absolutely scrumptious high tea. Everything we had was perfect. The scones with Devonshire cream were the best! We will revisit anytime we are in the area. A comfortable tea room, pleasant and accommodating services. A comparable high tea... More

Just a joy to stop at the O'Connor House and have the English breakfast that is as good as the English breakfasts in England. Great food, great service and friendly staff. Varied menu and all good stuff. And be sure to head across the street to see the work of the master craftsman who builds kayaks and sailboats by hand.... More

How can the same place turn out picture-perfect High Tea and two-fisted sandwiches on thick slabs of homemade bread? Save room for the beautifully-plated desserts; it was my first experience with scones and clotted cream and it is much yummier than it sounds. ;-)
