Afternoon Tea @ Truffles Fine Foods Cafe @ Van Dusen Garden

from word of mouth, heard there was a new cafe in Van Dusen Garden that faces the garden without needing to pay entry fee. was satisfied with the first visit so went again for the second time. to my surprise, it was quite busy.

from 2nd visit, pretty much the same
croissant and scones both quite soft
tea flavour is fixed, has about 6-8 tea cups
own choice of pannini
italian one was too salty
$28 for 2, $50 for 4
inside seating

-free parking and does not require entry fee
-self seating, outside seating quite popular, depends on your luck
-pricing fair, big portions, better deal than hotel afternoon teas
-no tips required since you order yourself but would be nice if you leave some
-they carry the tray to you and identify you with the number sign
-an excellent place for relaxing and to enjoy afternoon tea

Style: tea, sandwiches
