We are an English tea shop situated on Muskoka Wharf with a wonderful view of Lake Muskoka - right by the famous Steamships. We offer a variety of lunches including quiches, beef stew in a Yorkshire pudding, chicken pot pie, ploughmans lunch with English cheeses and of course sandwiches. Our most popular being the grilled brie and cranberry. We also offer an Afternoon Tea served on a two plated tier or High Tea served on a 3 plated tier.
