I had the chance to visit the Windsor Arms in Toronto this week, as a part of a birthday present from my friend.
The Windsor Arms is a five-star hotel, located in Yorkville – one of the richest parts of the city, lined with expensive boutiques and of course, expensive hotels.
Oh afternoon tea…I can honestly say that you are one of my most favourite things ever. There’s just something about meeting up with my girlfriends over a pot of steaming hot tea and a serving tray full of delicious baked goodies that brings out a feeling of instant happiness. Now I’ll be honest, when it comes to afternoon tea, I’ve yet to indulge in one that I haven’t enjoyed. BUT, I definitely do have my absolute favourites of all time (stay tuned to future blogs for the other!)
We were seated in the beautiful Purple Room, which is literally purple. The walls are painted a dark purple, the drapes are a light lilac, and even the dark purple velvet chairs match the walls. There’s a beautiful fireplace against the back wall which I’m told is original and still working.
