There’s nothing classier than high tea, and Neverland Tea Salon in Kitsilano is the best place to head on a girl’s day out.
The dreamy tea salon offers a selection of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free options, so anyone with dietary restrictions is able to indulge in the sweet treats without guilt. They carry 60 different types of tea, coffee, pastries, salads, and sandwiches.
In addition to high tea, they also have Tipsy Teas, which are tea infused cocktails. These include menu items such as Chai Old-Fashioned, Neverland Pick-Me-Up, and Bran-Tea Alexander. Their house special, Neverland Pick-Me-Up, is a combination of Parallel 49 expresso, Absolut Vanilia, Baileys Almande, Crème de Cacao, and almond milk. Yum!

The name Neverland Tea Salon was the initial start of the whole vision. “It filled me with images of a very special retreat from the chaos of everyday life, where people could check their adult worries at the door and remember what it felt like to be carefree kids,” explained Tatchell.
It’s locally owned, and was created by childhood friends Terri Tatchell and Renee Iaci. Tatchell co-wrote District 9 and Chappie, and Iaci is the owner of Shameless Hussy productions.
We may be a bit chandelier crazy but how else were we meant to light the way to Neverland? Second star to the right and all that? The two big ones are from Restoration Hardware but the smaller antique ones we actually found in Europe which we thought eliminated any thoughts of LED conversion. Not true!!!! Super excited to be converting every last bulb over the next few weeks!!!
They both have a background in film and theatre, so you know the place is going to be decorated as creatively as possible. It’s Marie Antoinette, 18th century Parisian salon inspired, with nifty pieces of furniture that each come with their own unique story. Each item in their salon, down to their china, is hand crafted and vintage thrifted all across Canada.
When: 11AM to 6PM Monday to Friday, 11AM to 7PM Saturday, and 11AM to 6PM Sunday.
Where: 3066 West Broadway, Vancouver
