The Camellia Tea Room at Milner Gardens & Woodland
Lovely setting for high tea! The food was excellent! When you first see the three-tiered tray, you might think that there isn’t a lot of food, but there is, and you fill up quickly! The tea, food, setting, and service was wonderful for our 5th anniversary! Would recommend the tea room as well as the gardens for locals OR tourists as a lovely afternoon outing.
Absolutely outstanding! Staff, environment, food and tea were outstanding! Thank you!
Wonderful experience at the tea room. lovely spot to refresh your spirit, mentally and physically, from the club car ride to the spectacular gardens. Definitely more, than what we expected.
Wow - the High Tea and the scenery were spectacular!!!
Beautiful setting, great food and service by wonderful volunteers!
Everything on offer for high tea was excellent. The warn scones with jam and Devon cream were a great starter. And the finger sandwiches were varied (egg, cucumber, curried chicken, and salmon) and tasty, but I wish there had been a few more. The chocolate covered strawberry was my favourite of the sweets. And what a glorious setting for tea on a sunny day.
Milner gardens has been one of my favorite places to go to when I visit the island. They have a most delicious high tea spread and the view is unbeatable!
A high school friend and I go to “HighTea” at Milner Gardens whenever she comes to the Island. We always enjoy ourselves. The view is great, the ambiance lovely and the dainties delectable. Ladies, you can even dress up a bit. I would highly recommend it.
This is a little hidden gem,I absolutely enjoyed my afternoon tea.The view from the patio was beautiful,the service was great & the tea sandwiches & cakes were such a treat.I will definitely be returning again.We also walked through the trails & gardens which are so well kept😊
My daughter was visiting for the weekend from Edmonton and this was her first time at Milner Gardens. I wanted to make it a special afternoon and booked the High Tea. It didn't disappoint! The service was friendly and attentive. We each had our own pot of tea and three tiers of delicious savoury and sweet treats as well as scones with preserve and cream. We sat on the verand,a as the weather was glorious, with views over the lawns and the Strait of Georgia beyond - bliss!! This was an afternoon to remember and I will certainly bring family and friends to enjoy the experience in the future.
A lovely way to spend time with friends..We were fortunate enough to be seated on the veranda...ocean view was spectacular...a gourmet High Tea...with excellent service.
We highly recommend a Milner Gardens adventure any day of the week.
It was our first experience having high tea at Milner Gardens and we loved it! Walking through the woodland garden has always been something we have enjoyed but we will definitely plan more opportunities to have the tea there.
It is such a special treat and we recommend it highly, for anyone visiting in the Qualicum Beach area.
A lovely place to enjoy High Tea and we highly recommend sitting out on the patio if possible to watch the ocean view. Although the food was very tasty it was a slight disappointment as it contained the exact same “ tasty’s” as the last High Tea we enjoyed at Milner Gardens on Mother’s Day this year.
Amazing food and scenery! Better than the Empress.
My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays, and chose the gluten-free high tea for our lunch. There was a mix-up with the online order, but the head lady in the kitchen was lovely and accommodating. She quickly did up another tray of gluten-free goodies for us. Also, the birthday napkins and banner were a lovely touch! Thank you so much!
It was a lovely experience but expensive. I didn’t mind the cost for the meal but having to pay an extra $12 each (there was 5 of us) just to get in on top of the meal is enough to not return. The tea and finger food were nice and they did do gluten free but it was an addition $5.
Thank you to the wonderful volunteers that make coming to the tea room such a great experience. History, beauty, lovely food! Keeps us coming back.
Staff was lovely, and very accommodating with my food allergies.
Good was delicious and scenery was breathtaking. Wonderful to experience while the rhododendrons are in bloom!
The staff and volunteers do a marvellous job of welcoming and providing excellent food and service.
I enjoy taking visitors to Vancouver Island for lunch or tea after a stroll through the wood lot and gardens.
Although the day was a bit rainy, the ocean whitecaps provided an ever changing view past the garden.
