A splurge to be sure, but high tea is the thing in this British-influenced city, and the Fairmont Empress offers the quintessentially elegant experience in surroundings of vintage wingback chairs, tapestries, and hand-carved tables. Kids 12 and under can order off the Prince and Princess Tea menu, which includes fresh strawberries and cream, raspberry jam croissants, and scones and with jam and cream. It’s best suited for children who will enjoy a sedate ceremony. Reservations required. Seatings begin at noon and end at 3:45 p.m. Plan for an hour.
