I was looking to take my friend, who was visiting from Virginia, out for a special lunch. The Tea Room on Madison was recommended. I had never been to a tea room before, I'm a coffee gal, rather, I was a coffee gal. We were blown away. The Entrance is lovely, the hostess invited us to look around and when we were ready to sit she showed us to an alcove that was inviting, warm and tastefully decorated. We felt as though we were dining in a doll house. The service was prompt and we were not hurried, we were invited to stay as long as we like and enjoy the atmosphere. The music was relaxing, the atmosphere calm and our waitress was charming. The scones were delicious; the pumpkin bread smelled as good as it tasted and the house salad is dried cranberries, cranberry sauce, raspberry dressing and a dollop of sour cream on top, it was a gourmet salad to me! I had the Earl Grey chicken breast w/champaign sauce that melted in your mouth; my friend had the Hampton which was chicken breast with a tasty,spicy, sauce and it was wonderful. We had blueberry iced tea - we had never had blueberry tea before and we are hooked. Naturally we had dessert, an ice cream crepe w/cherries, chocolate and whipped cream, again beautifully presented and delicious. We can't wait to go back. Lovely and comfortable.
