I visited for the second time and was again charmed by the beautiful ambiance of this tearoom. My friend and I had the afternoon tea, I believe it was the Duchess Tea, and the soups were wonderful, as were the tea sandwiches. I do feel, however, that in this setting, the elegant 3-tiered servers would have added alot to the presentation. The scones were a bit of a disappointment; rather dry and hard and tasteless. The desserts and the teas themselves were very enjoyable. I will visit again, but will try the lunch menu next time...I think the afternoon tea price exceeds the experience. I also will not agree to be seated upstairs again in the future. The rooms are also lovely, but we ended up being the only patrons up there as the lunch crowd thinned out, and felt a bit neglected, with very long periods of time between our courses. Our afternoon tea began at 12:30pm, and by 4pm we had not yet been served our dessert course. Our tea by then was quite cool, and we really had to be on our way, so had most of our desserts boxed. Our server was delightful, but very busy downstairs and had to keep running up to us periodically.
