Neverland Tea Salon

This newly opened tea salon on W Broadway has a giant sign on the outside, trust me you won’t miss it. I believe this tea salon opened this summer, they are connected to Opentable so you can easily book a reservation online or even using a mobile app. I love these easy bookings. 😉

Anyways, upon entrance to this tea salon I noticed right away all the ‘vintage’ furniture all over the place. It is a very beautiful and quite large tea salon, full with people. I was glad that I made a reservation. The furniture are not real vintage, they are however very rustic. Pulling that rustic vintage theme together really well. I loved the chandeliers hanging in the middle of the room.

A friendly staff came up and guided me to my table with a bunch of mismatched teacups, adorable and vintage. :3

Neverland has several afternoon tea services and a lot of a-la-carte items that you can order. So it’s great if you can’t finish the whole tea set or would like to try out different items. To share between two girlfriends and I we ordered two mini afternoon tea service and one onion tart with salad to share.

Items from petite afternoon tea set:

Afternoon Tea Set (mini set for two)

Pear Brie Croissant Sandwich – I love brie and thinks brie and pear is a perfect combination. A little bit made in heaven for me. This is a delicious light sandwich with pear fresh and brie creamy – very yummy.

Crabmeat Slider – No more tuna sandwiches (which I pretty much get at all tea places!) Something newer and interesting. I quite liked it.

Fruit Tart – chocolate ‘tart’ base with custard and berries. Can’t really go wrong with that.

Gluten Free Vegan Brownie – very rich and dense fills up verily quickly just having this. (This cafe has a large selection of vegan and gluten free options

Red Wine Onion Tart with Salad – delicious onion tart with goat cheese and candied pecans. I haven’t hate onion tart in a while and for some reason this one seems extra delicious. With puffy pastry and succulent onions with fragrance of red wine. You probably really should try this.

Vegetarian Lunch Sandwich – like I said this restaurant has many gluten free and vegetarian options. You can always ask them to see what is available, which gives a great selections!

IMG_8348Aside from the noise level, this is a really great place. But considering this is a high tea place designed for chatting seems to have a very high noise level. Maybe during the week is better. But this is by far the nosiest high tea place I have been too. I had a little feeling of talking over people to try to communicate.

For the last bit of sunshine, I went and enjoyed Butter Baked Goods Tea Room’s high tea services. (Which is at a different location than Butter Baked Goods Cafe from my previous post.)

This tea place is as adorable as its cafe, full of floral wallpaper and adorable pink and mint green made me felt like looking into a catalog again. 🙂 I like this place is very small and only really fits 7 to 8 tables, but gives this place a nice quietness for chatting away your afternoon with a few girlfriends.

They serve three types of tea sets:Butter Baked Goods Tea Room

Traditional Afternoon Tea – a regular size afternoon which I’ve ordered with unlimited tea refill

Butter Baked Goods Tea Room

Butter’s Demilune – lighter version of the regular size with one pot of tea

Children’s Tea – made especially for kids appeal and offers with a glass of milk or teaButter Baked Goods Tea Room

So here is two sets of regular size tea and I’ve ordered the buttercream blend. I have to say they have a very VERY small selection of their tea. This is a tea room, I would expect a little more than just five tea types. Anyways, the tea is just like the sound of the name which I’ve already tried at their cafe. Very creamy, very creamy but in a tea form. :3

Let’s start the sweet tier (I know, where I always starts. :P) Chocolate Caramel Bar, Lemondrop Butter Cake, Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcake, Cappuccino Bar, Raspberry Chocolate Tart, Pecan Puff.  I would say the lemon cake is good without the overily icing on top. 😛 Cupcakes are delightfully fluffy!

Chocolate and Raisin Scones with strawberry jam and whipped brown butter.

Cucumber, Egg Salad Sandwiches, Tuna, Curry Chicken Sliders, Ham Croissant, Quiche. They have some very filling savouries, surefly fills you up in no time. (Maybe another reason why I always start with sweets.)

This little thing I forgot the name of it, but the gummy candy on top is delicious!! Not very sweet and tasted great with crunchy cookies underneath with a little bit of sugar cream.

The chocolate raspberry tart is yummy and look they actually fill the raspberry with chocolate ganache also. *thumbs up for details*

I will revisit, they are adorable and you feel great just sitting there. Food is good and very friendly staff.
