Steeped in history, the Fairmont Empress exudes an aura of grand charm and elegance. Its afternoon high tea is absolutely no exception. Offering 21 different types of fine loose leaf tea, guests can indulge in sweet treats, delicate sandwiches and fluffy scones in the elegant Lobby Lounge. There is also a live classical piano accompaniment to add to the romantic atmosphere.

Menus change to reflect seasonal ingredients but will always include afternoon tea favorites including English cucumber sandwiches, warm raisin scones and smoked salmon.
