When the weather outside is frightful or the excesses of Yorkville shopping and downtown Toronto living become too hectic, an escape has been waiting for those in the know for 90 years now - high tea at the Windsor Arms Hotel.

The Windsor Arms has just completed a year-long renovation project with the theme of Old World opulence and elegance. It's a warm ambiance that will envelop you from the moment you enter the lobby with its columns covered in lush embroidered velvet and a stunning tree sculpture by Canadian artist Bruno Billio.

Tea has been served at the Windsor Arms since its opening in 1927, and it has become one of Toronto's hidden treasures, beloved by locals and tourists alike. You can choose from two different tea rooms - the French-style teal room, or the purple room with its original working fireplace.
