Having visited quite a few tea rooms over the years, The Painted Tea Cup was a pleasant treat! Everything on our plates was homemade, and it showed. The soup was divine and I'll admit I licked the bowl! The scone/sandwiches had nice variety and flair. The desserts unique and flavorful. The teas were good too. Served with cinnamon sticks, slices of lemon and orange, and candied sugars you could add to the tea. The staff was knowledgable, accommodating (we arrived an hour early) and on top of things! The decor is homey, inside and out... linens, china, holidays decorations, samples, knick knacks to purchase. I'd highly recommend!
