We came up from Virginia to visit family and friends for the Christmas holidays and stopped by the tea room just after Christmas. They suggest reservations and we had not made reservations, however they very graciously accommodated the three of us. Anna was our server and she was superb! She asked if we had any nut allegies when she described the two salads of the day. That was impressive, as a many restaurants do not ask that. The menu was very impressive with a variety of choices and combinations. The tea selection was expansive and the specialty teas were excellent. We all got our own teapot with a cute little cosy on it. There were easily four cups in each pot of tea that stayed hot. The salads were very fresh and the variety of nuts and cheese was well balanced. Mom had a celery soup with arugula and fennel that was savory and warming. The variety of finger sandwiches was impressive and very tasty! Overall it was a lovey afternoon!
