I absolutely love going to Tea Rooms our mistake was visiting this one. Our tea pot was chipped, the tea seemed just barely warm, and they didn't have the proper tea strainers with dishes to rest the screen on. I just can't imagine going through all the trouble and not doing it right. We were served Margerine as butter. The creamer was the packaged room tempature one. No sugar cubes, only 8 choices of tea. Very few decaf choices. The food really was not that good maybe people who like pot luck kind of food would like it. The soup was just above water flavor no cream used in the Cream of Asparagus. The desserts were all cold pies.
are you sure genevive you are talking about lavendernlace tearoom ?? because we do not use pakaged creamers ,our strainer always come with a rest or the spill would ruin the lace table cloths ,we always use electric tea kettles to ensure a perfect temperature for the tea take tea brewing very seriously or like you said it dafeats the purpose of being called a tearoom ,<BR> we have fourteen kinds of teas and now that we sell bulk teas we have a wider range ,we have a wide variety of homemade desserts which include orange italian creme cake ,hummingbird ,carrot pumpkin cake ,breadpudding ,chocolate rasbery and three kinds of pies .<BR> we welcome and appriciate an honest feed back and criticism and your opinion matters to us very much but your remarks have left us confused ..we request you to come to the tearoom as our guest for a memorable lunch or high tea <BR> <BR> sincerely <BR> sara <BR> <BR>
