Wow! Victoria Rose Cottage has the most beautiful Victorian decor I have ever seen in a restaurant. Much like some of their other customers, I also have traveled in London and Bath, England; Victoria, BC; and many tearooms in American cities. This one is at the top of the list as my favorite. It is truly what I look for is a tearoom; yummy food, beautiful decor, excellent service and as an added treat, special events that look to be very entertaining. I was there for brunch today only to discover they have their own certified etiquette consultant. They were holding a graduation tea for their most recent students. We were impressed! We'll also be back again and again.
My sister treated myself, husband, mother and several of her good friends to a fabulous afternoon tea experience at The St. James Tearoom. It was wonderful. The decor is adoraby Victorian in style and the food beautifully served and delicious. There were several real surprises as far as menue items and made for a delightful treat visually and for the tastebuds. The waitstaff was very friendly and capable. The furishing were comfortable and lovely. It added alot to our vacation in N.M. We certainly got our moneysworth. We will have tea here again when we are in the area.
