Belladonna's is my favorite tea room as it offers the complete experience. The decorations are whimsical with vintage hats, purses and gloves. Every time I go, I notice something I hadn't seen before. The owner, Donna, has been blessed with the gift of hospitality. No matter how busy she is, she always takes time to make each person feel as though they are guests in her place. The selection of teas is very good, and there is always a few new flavors listed on the specials board. The food is extremely tasty and is served in an attractive way. The homemade pumpkin and the sun-dried tomato with feta cheese soups (served in the colder months) are out-this-world as is the homemade raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing (salad is served during the warmer months). She also serves open-face and traditional sandwiches, which are quite delicious. I can't say that I've ever had something there that I didn't care for. In fact, I wish I could get Donna to share some of the recipes with me! After enjoying the Belladonna tea experience, I look forward to shopping in her boutique. I rarely leave without purchasing something wonderful. She sells tea, teacups, teapots, hats, fascinators, purses and jewelry. That's why I say that Belladonna is the place to go if you want the complete experience! It's like an unexpected jewel in Lancaster, CA and I highly recommend it.
Dearest Liza,<BR> Your encouragement and support is so appreciated. Thank you for bringing so many of your friends up to Lancaster and spreading the news about our little tea shop. We still love serving tea just as much as we did the day we opened 12 years ago. Hope to see you again real soon, God Bless you, Donna
