“English tea could really be reinvented with open-face sandwiches and little crostinis,” says McEwan.

1) WINNER: LIBRARY BAR AT THE ROYAL YORK
“These to me, at first glance, look the best. These are certainly the tastiest sandwiches, and I like the macarons and the key lime tart,” says McEwan. 
100 Front St. W., $50/person

2) SORELLE AND CO.
“There’s a big assortment of pastries. The macarons are very good, and the chocolate crinkle cookies are very nicely done,” says McEwan.
1050 Rutherford Rd., $50/person 

3) MoRoCo
“This is definitely the most modest. The curry chicken salad sandwich tastes good, and the macarons are pretty good too,” says McEwan.
215 Madison Ave., starts at $16.95/person

4) T-BUDS
“The scones here are very traditional and are the perfect size. The sandwiches also have a nice look to them,” says McEwan.
3343 Yonge St., 2nd Floor, $30-$32/person
