Afternoon Tea @ LuvCravings

saw this place putting an ad and article in a local chinese magazine and was attracted by it. a friend heard that the owner had a passion to start a cafe for a long time
filled with sets for 3 people
velvet cupcake, chocolate mousse, chocolate coated strawberry
the mousse was too heavy to finish
strawberries were huge and sweet even though not in the season, the best out of the 3
scones (cheese and earl gray) and quiches
prefer the earl gray one as it was lighter than the cheese
nothing too special
tray of tea samples but there were a ton more to choose from
the menu we chose, the other one has more items for more $

4018 Cambie St 
Vancouver, BC V5Y2H5
(604) 563-1818

-the atmosphere was modern and cozy, especially since the afternoon tea sets were served in a different area
-everything was pre-made so reservation is necessary, they dropped one of the quiches and had to replace with another scone, if you want specific items from the menu you have to mention in reservation
-hard to say if i want to revisit just for the tea set as the food was average and nothing surprising
-can see that the owner (assuming) is really interested in tea as one of us wanted coffee instead of tea but she replied that coffee's taste would be too strong and defeat the purpose of the tea set, but she said she would still offer it to us if we really wanted it
-server was superb, offered us a ton of teas to smell before finally settling done on one, she really knows her teas
-instant 10% discount if you like their facebook page, also got free scratch and wins at the end for next visit
-free parking in back and close to King Edward Station

Style: tea, sandwiches
