An Afternoon Tea To Remember but not in the way I had hoped...
While it looks really nicely presented, I am a very firm believer that when you offer "afternoon tea" you offer at least one type of scone, usually two, none were offered.
Also you may notice on the top that there are burgers and fish tacos on the top layer. I will say the burger tasted pretty good, but I had phoned the week before to make sure they knew about my allergies to shellfish and seafood as well as mango and was assured I would not be allergic to anything on the plate, (I had my epi pen and did not need to use it but I was very disappointed in what they thought passed for afternoon tea)
While I was mostly disappointed with what was served because it was not as described at all or expected, I did enjoy the company. The tea itself that was offered was a line of bagged teas from Mighty leaf. Not a bad tea but standard restaurant fair. This tea was presented like a tea but was really an appy plate and a selection of desserts. I was disappointed. I had wanted to share a great experience with a friend and I was disappointed with restaurant. The company and view was exceptional though and I am glad she was able to join me.
If you are coming to West Vancouver for tea avoid Bay Moorings Restaurant for tea but do check them out for lunch or dinner, the burger was pretty great and the desserts not half bad.
Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a look at one of West Vancouver's restaurants offering tea. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
