We have taken tea in fine hotels in Canada and many tea rooms in England. Some may have been more elegant, but none any better than this offering. Tea selection and food outstanding; great variety and quality. Knowledgeable, welcoming, caring staff. They had just sold out of one kind of scone so apologized that it would take a little extra time to get them, as more were baking. Some places would have just told you, sorry, we don't have that one! We will visit Serenity whenever we are in Frederick! Tip: if you like a good black tea blend, their Royal Court is marvelous.
