Holiday Treat: The Shangri-La’s Nutcracker High Tea

December 16, 2013

The "Spanish Dance" chocolate truffle, "Arabian Dance" coffee opera cake, and "Dance of the Reed Flutes" marzipan cake will all melt in your mouth as you relax in one of Toronto’s most lively hotel lobbies.


This afternoon treat is in perfect proximity to the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts across the street, so the Nutcracker theme can easily carry into an evening performance of the ballet. However, if you’re able to score a coveted seat by the lobby’s double-sided fireplace flickering along the centre of the room, you may never want to leave.nutcracker—Laura Lanktree
