Country Dove Gifts & Tea Room (3 reviews)
In western Oklahoma, a pleasant surprise awaits those that venture off of Interstate 40 into Elk City. The Country Dove Tea Room occupies a vintage two-story house that transports visitors back to a gentler time that is slower-paced. As soon as one enters the vestibule, one's breathing slows to a more relaxed pace. A small bookstore featuring Christian books occupies the vestibule. The tea room and kitchen grace the rest of the first floor. A whimsical gift shop and the rest room beckon visitors upstairs. While the tea offerings are good and the food is tasty, it is the welcoming staff and the graceful decor that beckon us to adjust our travel schedule to experience the Country Dove again and again.
I live just over an hour away from the Country Dove. I love to eat there! The food is always delicious--their soup is amazing and the French Silk pie is wonderful! My favorite entre is the chicken-avocado on croissant. Their tea selection is limited. When I have ordered hot tea, I always get a bag of Lipton, which I don't consider good tea. The iced tea is good. I'm not sure they even have any flavor tea except black. However, the atmosphere is wonderful and the food makes it worth the stop!
I was in town with my mother in-law for an auction with our husbands...needless to say we were bored! Knowing that we both love hot tea we found this tea room.....WE LOVED IT! The staff was great the muffins amazing and the tea different but sweet and good! We will be back next March and have already planned to go next time and have lunch! P.S. I loved the gifts shop up stairs! One happy Texan from Montgomery County!
