    This teahouse recently went under new ownership in Aug. 2006. Under the previous, original owners, I frequented the tea house several times a year and thought it was absolutely superb in every aspect. Today was my first visit since the new owners took over, and I am sad to say that I was very disappointed. The atmosphere, gift shop, tea, and service were still nice (although not as good as before), but the food was especially disappointing and not nearly as good a value as before. The food is completely different. Gone is the wonderful mixed fruit cup you used to receive; gone are the mini quiches as well. The scones were too moist for my liking, tasting more like muffins. Most all of the sandwiches were extremely bland and very ordinary (tunafish, egg sald, and dark meat chicken?). The desserts were very average, and you only receive half as many as you used to. There was nothing I ate that made me say 'Yum!' or 'Wow, that was really good!' They also serve a children's tea, and we thought this was lacking too. The sandwiches were good for the kids and the scones and desserts were okay, but gone were the fruit, veggies, crackers, cheese, and gummy bears they used to serve. Also, the menu says the kids are supposed to receive a petite tart like the adults, but my kids never revceived one. The adults got theirs, and my kids sat there with nothing until the rest of the food arrived. I'm not sure I will return.
