    Nov 11 - Dec 31, 2023
    Looking to Jo Malone London’s trio of exciting holiday fragrances for inspiration—Ginger Biscuit, Orange Bitters, and Pine & Eucalyptus—we were inspired to create a sweet and savoury afternoon tea at Holts Café Bloor Street.

    The Jo Malone afternoon tea was very nice. Holts was out of several options for the tea itself but I found a nice substitute for the one I would have picked. The sandwiches, scones and dessert were very good. Our server Denys was attentive and pleasant. The Jo Malone samples were nice although I would have thought they would have tied in more with their new holiday scents. Definitely would recommend! A discount code on your next JM purchase at Holts wouldn’t have been a bad idea!

    Unusually bright and open space with simple, healthy and elegant food. Prices are not low, but not too high either, especially given the Bloor St location.

    The food was alright — you get what you pay for. I'm not sure if they were understaffed, but we asked for the bill and either our server was extremely busy and didn't have time to bring it to us, or he forgot, but eventually a different server brought us the bill after we waited 15~20 minutes. Disappointing service, but maybe it was just an off day for them.

    It is always a great pleasure to take my friend, who is in a wheelchair, to enjoy excellent meals. The service of valet parking makes our visit even more comfortable. This time, the only little complaint was the noise level. We couldn't keep up our conversation, but that is not Holt's Café's fault. We are returning for more of those fantastic visits with excellent food, drinks and staff. Thank you. Christian A Swiss Storyteller in Canada

    The newly redecorated Holts Cafe is a lovely convenient spot for lunch downtown. It feels special and classy, which was what I wanted when meeting friend from out of town. We shared the Korean Cauliflower for a starter. It had interesting flavours but I found it a bit too saucy and didn't expect it to be breaded or feel breaded if it wasn't. Our lunches were fabulous. I had the Tuna Nicoise and. my friend ordered the tuna poke bowl. We were so full we had no room for dessert but agreed we would definitely come back another time.

Management has done a top notch job in selecting people that enjoy their job and serving the customer, creating an atmosphere where customers want to come back again. Totally enjoyable brunch and afternoon.

    We had a lovely lunch. My husband had the Caesar salad with shrimp and it was delicious! I had the sweet potato hamburger on lettuce bun. Absolutely yummy except: the hamburger needed to be a bit more moist but had lots of flavor and sauce was delicious. Service terrific. Will go back soon. Thank you, Cally. Toronto
