The three of us wanted to complete our tour of Montreal establishments that serve Afternoon Tea so we reserved a table at the Ritz. The Afternoon Tea takes place in the Palm Court (picture high ceilings, elegant chandeliers, and a fireplace) located in an area leading to the ballroom and just off of the main entrance to the hotel. We had a corner table with 2 high-backed chairs and one low-backed chair - all designed for reclining and relaxing! The polished service was provided by Germain who was extremely polite, attentive, and amiable. The full traditional Afternoon Tea costs $32 (additional cost if you want a glass of bubbly) - for smaller appetites the individual items are also available on an à la carte menu. We chose from a list of approximately 8 teas which were all served in individuel teapots and were refilled with hot water as needed. The 3-tiered serving tray included delectably light scones (plain and with currants), finger sandwiches (cucumber, egg, tomato, and smoked salmon), and tasty mini pastries (raspberry lemon curd tartelette, St. Honoré, clafoutis, chocolate-orange cake, millefeuille, and a few others!). Alongside were serving dishes with cherry jam, a delicious rose petal jelly, and a light clotted cream. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the excellent service, and the unhurried and comfortable ambiance - all living up to the Ritz's high class reputation.
