Variety of Tea: Exceptional. I am a Twinings man, and that is what they serve here. They also serve chai tea, and since I know little about it, I defer on a review of that. Food: Shirley serves both traditional (finger sandwiches and cakes/cookies, etc.) and modern (the Reuben sandwich was quite good). Scones and croissant were both excellent. Artistry and Tea Preperation: Tea pots (single, double and triple are available) were both hot and strong. They have both honey and sugar (I prefer honey) and both milk and creamer. And the pot is served with a blanket so it stays hot. Traditional tea sampler was served on a three tier tray. Good show here. Service quality and cheer: Miriam (waitress) was outstanding: Polite, tolerant (we had children) and swift. She was covering the entire tea room alone (Sunday) also, which made her work today all the more impressive. All in all, we traveled from Connecticut to visit this tea room, and we will do so again.
