Mom and I recently tried out a new, up and coming cafe in downtown Saskatoon.
I would say the feel of the place was "modern French" with just a hint of an era gone by.
The store attached seems to sell mainly things that fall into the "Shabby Chic" category, with many hints of the whimsical.
VERY pricey, I will say, but if you like to go browse and get ideas and just enjoy looking at beautiful things, you will want to leave a few minutes to wander the store, before or after tea.
Their food, from what we tried, was delicious and well made, and served quite properly.
A more simple, stylish way of serving.
I really enjoying the Sencha Green Tea we had~ it was made right and had excellent flavor!
I did feel things were a little over-priced, meaning of course, it was a special treat, but only certain clientele will be able to go there regularly.
I must make a note though, of the excellent customer service & a very positive mood!
However, if you are looking for a charming place to go for tea and a light lunch with a friend, be sure to check out this little spot!

A lovely display case at the front counter.
Fresh flowers are on every table, a welcoming touch, and also the little frames they give you with your table number are a neat idea.
It's very nice to have your tea and food brought to you, like a proper cafe, and not like a lot of these modern cafes where you wait & carry your own purchases.
They tasted fresh & well made.
And a little shot of your chef, The Mouse, cradling her tea, because goodness knows, my paws are always cold & that's my favorite part about tea~ warming them up! *grins*
