Ottawa: Lunch at The Tea Party

The Tea Party Cafe is located in the heart of Ottawa’s Byward Market. And this was where we decided to stop for lunch.

After settling ourselves down at a cosy table in the corner, we proceeded to the counter to order our food. Check out those yummy scones and muffins. And they are all vegetarian!

I defaulted to my favourite chai tea latte, topped with hints of cinnamon spice powder.

There’s a reason why it’s called The Tea Party. Just look at the shelves lined in rows and rows of container glass jars filled with tea leaves from all over the world, with Eileen in the background. *_^


Love the bright and cheery labels and it’s said to offer 150 types of tea from black, green, herbal, decaffeinated to specialty teas. I’m into Rooibos so was busy snapping away.

The sandwich options looked really attractive especially the tandoori tofu or the hummus wrap but I thought I would go for something Thai.

My lunch at The Tea Party Cafe – Thai Tofu Curry. Have to say this is a very Westernized version of Thai curry, which tastes more like Chinese tofu stir fry than the typical creamy tasty Thai dishes you would expect. It still tastes good, simple soy tofu cubes with lemongrass but a little bit disappointed that it’s not what I expected.

Eileen ordered cream sauce with tofu on basmatic rice and she cleaned the plate. It was yummy I could tell.

Spotted this lovely painting at The Tea Party. Looks like a great cafe to chill with friends and have afternoon tea here.

Another view of the cafe. If I go back to visit, I would love to try their scone set and sandwiches.
