What a wonderful place to spend time, enjoying finer things of life. I invite everyone to enjoy an afternoon and be pampered. I took my sister for birthday and then invited a visitor to my home from WV to lunch. Her first trip to a Tea room, we enjoyed variety of 3 teas, wonderful scones and other delightful food. But most of all is the way you personally feel, Pat prepares wonderful food & Monica gives great service. It is a great escape from the ordinary and gives much needed mental relaxation. God Bless you for all you put into making a place for me & my friends to experience. Love Nathena Darlene

What a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. My recent visit back to Lake Alfred would not be complete without a couple visits to my favorite place to eat in Florida or anywhere for that matter. The flowers, court yard,friendly faces, delicious food, (no where else can I find the quality and flavors), the crepes are one of my favorites with the side salad that has a most delightful light dressing. The black bean soup was such a great starter, my daughter's favorite is still the chicken corn chowder soup. The tea flavor that day was delicious Blackberry, I like it iced, since I live in north now and it was hot that day. But I observed several of the Red Hat ladies that were also dining that day ( wow must have been almost a 100 of them)had an individual pot of hot tea. My friends and I shared 3 desserts, the Triple Berry Cheesecake was awesome, Angel pie was light and had lots of coconut, (yummy) Trifle is one of my favorites. For 20 years I have never eaten anything I did not like, therefore I look forward to including a trip or 2 here every time I visit FLorida,its one of the things I miss the most by not living in the area now. The little girls tea party from 10 years still holds special memories for my daughter and I. I hope to get a bunch of friends together on my next visit for high tea. The ladies are friendly & helpful & beautiful in their aprons. I just forget my cares and enjoy the beauty of this old house & its charm. Sara always greets me and my friends with love & affection as if we were walking into her personal dining room.Its a great place to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, to make treasured memories of quality time visiting your friends over lunch. I so appreciate my friends driving from Lakeland to share lunch with me. We plan on doing it again next visit. Thank you Sara & gang for the memories.
