Cassatt Tea Room at the Rittenhouse Hotel
210 W. Rittenhouse Square
Despite giving this charming room excellent rating, I will not be returning. I have a ladies tea group that has visited the Cassatt Tea Room many times in the past. However, they recently renovated the room, and perhaps I am wrong, but they appear to have passed the cost of renovation on to customers. A full tea that used to cost about $25 is now $50. I passed the information on to the ladies, when I was making reservations this past June, and none of them was will to pay that much money for our tea. We plan to celebrate our 15th anniversary at the St. Regis hotel next July, and their Afternoon Tea is $29. They also need to find a way to keep the tea warm throughout the meal, and removed tea leaves, as they begin to 'stew' after being in the pot for too long, imparting an unpleasant taste.
