My visit here started outside on the beautiful grounds. The teahouse is tucked in a beautiful green area overlooking the metroparks. The landscaping is lovely and a great place to take pictures. We were a group of 4 including a mother, grandmother, teenager and 5 year old. We all loved our tea! The menu options were wonderful for all, even with one of us being a vegetarian and a picky 5 year old. My daughter was served her very own bubblegum flavored tea in a teapot just for her. We chose a green tea and a black tea and they were both equally as yummy. For lunch we had a fantastic salad with greens, strawberries mandarin oranges and a vinagrette dressing. The 5 year old had tomato basil soup and ate every last drop. Our second course was banana bread, scones and cranberry bread served with lemon curd and devonshire cream. We then had small sandwiches- Chicken salad, cucumber and a bruchetta. Our last course was dessert. Everything was fresh and delicious. I highly recommend Emerald Necklace Inn for all ages and food preferences. The staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and tolerant of a restless 5 year old. On our way out we purchase some bubblegum tea and a teapot just for my daughter! We cannot wait to go back!
