My husband and were lucky enough to enjoy lunch at Governor Croswell's last week. Neither of us had never been to a tea room and didn't quite know what to expect. Here are my observations: Obviously a great deal of care and reasearch has been done by the owners to present a genuine experience at this facility. The restaurant itself is beautifully appointed with great care given to the details. The food was superb. We both picked a selection from one of the four quiche offerings that day and to say they literally melted in our mouth would not adequately describe how delicious they were. The soups and the cheddar muffins that accompanied our quiches were perfect accents to the quiche and very well seasoned and prepared. I am a stickler about food temperature when presented and I was delighted that my food was served hot - a simple necessity that seem to present a challenge to many restaurants. The wait staff was one of the best we've had. They knew their products (both tea and menu items)as though they had prepared them and could describe them thoroughly and accurately and make confident recommendations based on our questions and preferances. Not only were they a very knowledgeable waitstaff, they were also were very talented singers and we were treated to three songs. We would make the hour and 1/2 return trip to this tea room in a heartbeat. The food, the ambience and the waitstaff make a trip to this tea room a must. The owners, Al and Phyllis are gracious hosts who obviously care great deal about the dining experience their customers receive.
Thank You Paddy for your wonderful review! I am glad that your first visit to a tea room was the Governor Croswell Tea Room and you enjoyed yourself. Be sure to visit other tearooms in Michigan as you travel. Come to see us again soon.
