It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and even if you’ve already splurged on
something special there’s no harm in accumulating more brownie points
and treating her to a spot of afternoon tea.
Herewith, our favourite Toronto tea rooms.
By far the prettiest teahouse in the city, The Red Tea Box brews more
than 32 varieties of tea served with delectable bento boxes, cakes and
tartlets. 696 Queen St. W., Toronto, 416-203-8882.
For a proper old-fashioned tea parlour, take mother to Madeleines,
Cherry Pie and Ice Cream. From fruity tarts to macaroons, she wont
be disappointed. 1087 Bathurst St, 416-537-3131, www.madeleines.ca
For a more informal tea-for-two, grab a table at Moonbean
in Kensington Market. More than 30 loose leaf teas, springy banana
bread, moist carrot cake and delicious vegan cookies will send mama over
the moon. 30 St. Andrew, Toronto, 416-595-0327, www.moonbeancoffee.com
