Taylor and Soapes (3 reviews)
Enjoyed our lunch and visit at the tearoom today,and the Apple Dumpling was super yummy. The cute gift shop made for some fun shopping. Because it was a hot day, we opted for iced drinks instead of hot tea- so cannot comment on the preparation or offerings today.
Taylor and Soapes is the best tearoom and gift shop in Illinois! They have awesome foods and a variety of fine and various homemade desserts. If you haven't visited, you need to! This tearoom treats you like family!!
The beautiful tearoom/gift shop is in an historic Mt. Olive bank building, with some of the restored original features. Spring green/hot pink is the color theme in the tearoom. Tea is served in very unique tea cups/with matching spoons. Salads are served in plate size hot pink bowls. The desserts are worth the drive there!! The food is prepared/served by a friendly, courteous staff. The atmosphere is very quiet/calming and a nice place to shop/relax, enjoy the surroundings.
