This tea room is by far the finest I have ever enjoyed! The loose leaf tea was brewed perfectly,the food was delectable and plentiful and the atmosphere warm and hospitable. I truly felt an incredible sense of peace as I visited with my friends. The servers were dressed in beautiful costumes that related to the theme of the month (Dicken's Olde English Tea) and the brief program of caroling put us all in the holiday spirit. I would highly recommend Sweet Shalom. I'm not sure what Susan was referring to regarding Bananas Foster. To my knowledge it was not even served in December.
