This is the best afternoon tea I've ever had! I am from California and decided to have a birthday party for a relative who lives in the Downers Grove area. The grace and caring with which Pam helped me plan this party was remarkable. And the food was delicious! All of our guests loved the sherry mushroom soup. The warm, cozy atmosphere was exactly what our guests needed after braving the December snow. If you are a tea lover visiting the Chicago area, don't miss this magical tea room where good people will take wonderful care of you. And if you live in Chicagoland be sure to visit - I'm envious you can visit any time you'd like! I have been to many, many tea rooms including posh hotels and small businesses and this is the best! The owners are truely creating something very special. Enjoy!
