I have to agree with Pat, this tea room goes beyond excellent. I am a tea room lover and have been to many both in the US and abroad and let me tell you this one sets the standard. Kathy, Anna and Trish do an outstanding job from the time they greet you at the door until they wave goodbye to you. The savory sandwiches are always on fresh bread and unique to say the least. Each one is a culinary masterpiece in it's own little bundle. The scones are to die for. When I am there, I always take a few home to heat up for family and friends. The desserts? That's a another story. Plentiful, fresh and delicious. Each lunch comes with a pot of tea and the selection is just wonderful, not to mention that these girls know how to steep a pot of tea to perfection. If you want to eat and relax at a tea room while visiting coatal NC there is not another place that can compare. You will leave here full and satisfied, without a doubt. These girls know what fresh means(home made)and this tea room in all of it's quaint and soothing glory is second to none!! Do not miss it.
