If there was a higher rating then excellent, I would give it to the Pickwick Society tearoom. We have always had a pleasant experience on our numerous visits. They serve whole leaf tea with tremendous variety. The staff is all knowledgeable about the various types of tea served. The food positively compliments the teas and is always fresh and delicious. The tea room is adorned with all sorts of interesting and tasteful decor, all of which is for sale. However, what makes this tearoom unique from others I have visited, is the staff. The owner and all her hostesses make your experience one in a million. You feel as if you are visiting the gracefully appointed home of an old friend...whether it is your first time there or your 30th. I highly reccommend the Pickwick Society Tearoom to any tea afficianado, or anyone wanting a peaceful afternoon to visit with a friend.
