Brunch in the Courtyard Café at the Windsor Arms Hotel was amazing! This, of course, is an understatement since you need to be there to experience it yourself. I was invited to sample the new brunch menu on a Sunday by Mary Tang (Mary’s Happy Belly Blog) and was blown away. I never had brunch at a hotel before.
Long time readers of High Heeled Life know that I love a good cup of afternoon tea and Windsor Arms is one of my favourite spots in the city to enjoy a leisure afternoon with my girl friends over a cup of tea anytime of the year! And with the temperatures in Toronto remaining steady below freezing, it was a welcomed invitation to escape to such as fabulous place.
Living in the country and having a birthday 6 days before Christmas makes planning a get-together with friends almost next to impossible any time near the actual date. So when one of my girl friends suggested that we start an annual Girls Tea in the City to celebrate Christmas and my BDAY!! I was over the moon delighted.
Miss A. (Miss M's sister and our niece) turned DOUBLE DIGITS!! Yes a whole 10 years old in February, to mark this special occasion Mr. G and I invited her to her first Afternoon Tea. We made a date for March (this 10 year old has a busy social calender), and reservations were made at my favourite Windsor Arms, for Afternoon Tea.
Long time readers of HHL already know I LOVE afternoon tea and the tea room at Windsor Arms is one of my very favourites in Toronto. I have wonderful memories of sharing tea with friends there, over the years. It started out as an after Christmas shopping trip in Yorkville treat with some girl friends years ago; evolving over the years to outings for birthday celebrations, girl friend catch ups on life's ups and downs (lots of laughs and tears have been shared here) and other times for no reason other than we love afternoon tea.
So, when friend E. invited me to tea at Windsor Arms -
there was no hesitation, "only when and what time?"
