No particular charm of this place; anyone could gather mixed chairs, tables, and teaware from auctions and call the resultant atmosphere 'charming,' I suppose. Service left much to be desired: little knowledge or interest in teas displayed, and tea socks were used in nice teapots; we were not even informed when to remove these filters, much less where to place spent leaves. When we asked how much longer to steep our tea, our server replied 'oh, a couple of minutes, I guess.' Sandwiches were mediocre, as were the pastries. All in all, overpriced, and much over-hyped. There are other bakery/cafes in town more deserving of your money!
