I attended a year-end Christmas party at the Empress Tea Room, and I must say we were ALL treated like queens! The sanwiches were of an excellent variety of both sweet and savory. The atmosphere was delightful. We were greeted by the owner Kim, and she was both charming, and very accomodating. I was very dissapointed with some of the posts placed on this site...it actually reads like a malicious smear campaign. I agree that social graces are the center of the 'tearoom experience', and would expect unhappy patrons would humbly accept apologies, and move on; and NOT ask everyone in their party to chime in... One negative experience does not a a bad tearoom make...I WOULD GLADLY RECOMMEND THIS TEAROOM!!!
Your group was so fun...I have used one of your pictures on a couple of the advertisments that we do..thank you
