I have taken to having staff lunches here, and it's perfect - the setting is great, everybody loves the quiches and scones with Devonshire cream, and you have the privacy to discuss whatever you need to cover. Particularly love the Devonshire - it's sweeter than...More

The food here is decent, the atmosphere is quaint, and the service was good. Large selection of teas. It was my first visit, and despite the good it will likely be my last. One in our party of 3 asked that her tuna sandwich be...More

We were here for a late lunch (2 pm) and were pleasantly surprised - the decor is neutral throughout, with quaint tables and wooden chairs. Many tea rooms have tables crammed together in a small space - this is not the case with The Dove's...More

Just love having lunch here - Gail is the best! I am addicted to the scones with Devonshire cream - it's my drug of choice. The quiche is absolutely the best too. At least once per week and have not had enough yet.

The scones and devonshire cream here are my constant craving. I try to keep myself to only once per week. The service and atmosphere are great, and it doesn't hurt that I am usually one of the youngest people there. ;)

My partner and I were in Calgary recently for a brief getaway. While in town, we made it a point to try at least one High Tea. We selected the Dove's Nest based, in part, on the good reviews it's received on this site; and,...More

The best quiche I have ever had, and I am not even fan of quiche. The scones with Devonshire cream are terrific. The service is great, the owner is very hospitable. We try to go once a week.
