Having missed my friend's birthday party which was also held here, she agreed to take me for my birthday! What a special treat! What I loved most about this tea room is that unlike those at hotels, I didn't feel like I was so much in a restaurant as in a private home conversing with the owner who had prepared high tea for me. The tea selection was excellent, especially recommend the vanilla cream rooibos tea and the food was imaginative, had lovely flavor combinations and I left feeling quite full to boot! The knowledge of tea that the owner imparted to me not only made my tea choices more intelligent, but added to the overall ambiance of the experience. Thanks again Michele for introducing me to this gem of a find; I will certainly be back!
