While it is out of the way a bit, the drive was beautiful, and this ia a must stop for all tea lovers. Reese Manor is truly charming in a 'they dont make 'em like that anymore' sense of style. The decaf wild cherry tea and almond cookie black tea are a must try. The soup, scones and desserts were outstandingly tasty. The ONLY thing our group would be picky about was the sandwich choices were a bit average. However we all are excited to return again for a most lovely experience.
I visited the Red Brick for High Tea in the fall. The food and tea were excellent. The staff was the most accomodating (one person in our party requested coffee) of our needs. I think they would do well to create a seperate space for the bakery counter, it was a touch distracting. The tea room itself could also be a bit cozier, however, I would also not feel nervous to take a young child there.
This is the tea room by which all english tea rooms should be measured. I have frequented this establishment many times and have not been disappointed. The food is outstanding, and might I recommend that you get something your NOT typically used to ordering, for the best surprises are to experience something unknown and delicious. I had never had a cold soup before but throughly enjoyed it. It is fun and silly to pick a new hat to try at each course. Any time of year is a good time to visit the Front Porch.
