High Tea at The Roof – Fairmont Hotel Vancouver


High tea at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver has moved to the elegant newly re-opened “The Roof”, combining elegant surroundings, gorgeous views, with fine tea blends and sweet and savoury bites. The Roof high tea is the perfect occasion to celebrate family and friends.

Chef Cameron Ballendine has created an afternoon tea menu filled with local and organic ingredients. Their teas are blended exclusively by The Metropolitan Tea Company. High tea is $49 for adults and $24.50 for children. For an additional $20  you can add a glass of Moet & Chandon to create a Champagne tea experience.
