Scones at the Gryphon d'Or tea room in NDG

Thumbnail image for Scones 025.jpgIn Quebec, it's the Journée des Patriotes on Monday, but it's also known as Victoria Day.

So we decided to drop in on one of Montreal's best tea rooms for a traditional British tea.

The Gryphon d'Or opened 15 years ago in NDG.

Cucumber sandwiches, sweets like Sticky Toffee Pudding, and blended teas have won it a place on the 'Best Tea List'. And it's scones win raves.

Sonali Karnick went out to meet owner Peggy Regan at Le Gryphon d'Or for a lesson in scone making.

But first Peggy showed her  around the tea room on Monkland Avenue.

Have a listen - and then try her recipe below:
