I have been to several high tea locations, and always compare one to another. One of the items you always expect for high tea is butter scones with jam and cloutted creams, yummy, but unfortunately the Vanitea does not serve these items. Offered for high...More

Service slow it took 15-20 to get our beverages. The endless mimosas were watered down fruit juice . We ordered the duck eggs Benedict , the duck was non existent and the English muffin was hard. The potato’s were over seasoned with garlic salt
