The Vanitea Room was originally founded by two best friends and ever passionate gourmands- Hind & Chanel, in 2015.
 
Inspired by their renowned epicurean travels throughout the world together, they thought it was “high” time to introduce Ottawa Society to the timeless tradition of afternoon tea, done beautifully and iconically as seen in the many echelons of Europe and the middle east.
 
As their concept grew and evolved into introducing elaborate scratch kitchen brunch service, inclusive events for their Ottawa community and private gatherings of various occasions, their partnership re-established into that of a sisterhood and Hind continued to helm and expand the conception of The Vanitea Room, a Tea Salon & Eatery.
 
“Beauty in cuisine and spacial, inclusive surroundings alike are what otherworldly spaces are made of” as Hind Told Shannon Smithers-Gay of one80 design when she began to outline the feel and look of the space. 
 
From Hind’s perspective: “I hope we continue to astound our guests, for many many years to come. Through the feasting of all their senses, views and taste buds alike.”

Tea has a rich and colourful history that has become an important part of many cultures across the world. This beverage was enjoyed in a more formal and organized setting, called the “Afternoon Tea”, which was popular among the ladies of the upper class. To this day, Afternoon Tea remains to be quite the elegant event, served in establishments designed with beauty and femininity in mind. 

Vanitea Room has created an otherworldly space carefully crafted to mimic the refined and sophisticated look and feel of a traditional European tea salon.
