    My boyfriend and I went to Quelque Chose for an afternoon tea, and we had a lovely time. We had the classic afternoon tea and the classic gluten free afternoon tea. Both had a great selection of delicious treats, and the service was great. Definitely an experience I would recommend and do again!

    Two grandparents with 21 year old grand daughter who is celiac (essential she eats gluten free). It was very special for her as we never thought she would be able to have this special treat. The food was delicious and we felt they handled the gluten free very well. Definitely we’d go again!

    This place is all about the macarons and they were delicious! I would never go to a place just for macarons until this place. All the macarons we tried tasted like the flavor they said they were. The scone and croissant were perfect but the sandwiches were just ok and the tea selection was small. Go for the macarons, they were wonderful!

    Classic High Tea: Every bite was tasty, fresh, and delicious! The scones were the best I've had. The croissants were buttery and flaky. I enjoyed it even more than Zoe's High Tea. It wasn't served on china or silver, but it didn't affect the flavour at all.

    Took my granddaughter for her 11th birthday and it was a huge success. She marveled at the ambience and remarked on the nice waiter. She loved the hot chocolate with whipped cream in a tall glass. She enjoyed the sandwiches and options for macaron flavors. She even got a gorgeously wrapped little gift on exit. Just a perfect afternoon.

    We were unfortunately seated next to a large group. The acoustics is very poor making their conversation loud and overwhelming for us to have a good conversation. Food as okay to fine but service was sporadic. For the price I expected better.

    The value for the cost is nit here. The idea is great. But sandwiches are lacking filling. And over all things are pre-made and stored in the fridge and brought out for tea settings. Tea was weak and cold. Fefills are only more water not a new pot for the price. The scone are lovely but the rest of thr food was not very good. After finding a hair on one of the macaroons I was told it was on top not baked in and was probably just an eyelash or eyebrow hair from the server. This not a great reaction as I prefer to have no hair found on my food.

    Quelque Chose - WestboroResponded on May 24, 2022Hi Megan. I understand you were not happy with your experience with us. We take the criticism that we are a “1-star café” very seriously as we disagree entirely, and feel that instead, we are a business run by human beings. We are sorry that there was an eyebrow on one of your macarons, I want to assure you that this is a very random outcome. Our manager went to your table to apologize for the incident, and even applied a discount on your bill. I hope that you will accept our sincerest apology.

    We were three adults and two children for tea. We had a table by the window which was perfect for the five of us. The service was good and we really enjoyed the food. It was fun for each person to pick out their own flavours of macaroons ...which were so tasty . The children loved the huge mugs of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate. We had a lovely time,never felt rushed and really enjoyed the experience .My only negative is that it was quite noisy as customers came in frequently to buy from the bakery but it was a Saturday afternoon . The are tables in the back of the restaurant but the area seemed a bit dark. There is a rooftop patio which is probably really nice in the warmer weather .I would definitely go back to Quelque Chose and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a lovely high tea .

    We had afternoon tea to celebrate a birthday. The portions were just right, just a few bites left to take home to make the pleasure last. Best macarons we’ve ever tasted. We were glad to be offered a choice of macarons. The scone was also amazing. Everything tasted fresh and homemade. I highly recommend this place.

    It was okay, staff nice but we were disappointed. We are not snobby picky people but we were not impressed. Tea cups were plain thick white mugs, really not fun to hold or drink out of, not pretty, really took away from the experience. Sandwich breads were all dry as if they hadn't been covered properly. Mini desserts on top tier unimpressive/not intricate, we were both disappointed. Clotted cream seemed like whipped, not the real thing or it was whipped and the tiny amount given with jam was not enough. Place was empty but we were going to be sat in the back when we asked to sit by the window in front instead. We wished we had paid more and gone to the Fairmount. Macarons were good. Experience mixed with food not worth $100+, sorry.

    My friends and I all ordered the Classic vegetarian afternoon tea. We loved every bite! I am glad that I called ahead to inquire what the sandwiches were because I don’t usually order vegetarian, but the other sandwiches were not appetizing to me at all. They should have the full description of the what the sandwiches are on the menu.

    Great sized boutique. Tables not too close to each other. Will love to check out the rooftop patio this summer. Went for High Tea with my daughter for her birthday at 11am (order a day ahead). Our reservation was setup at a nice table in the back. The server directed us to their online menu to pick out our choices of tea and macaroons. Service was very friendly and staffed worked as a team to ensure optimal and quick service. We were presented with cute little towers of our selected choices as well as a gluten free option for myself! (They also offer vegetarian options). We left stuffed and with big smiles. Was an awesome afternoon activity.
