Well, I gave this place ANOTHER try even after reading so many reviewers who had the SAME negative experience that I had last year. I thought, 'Maybe the 'Tea Mistress' was having a bad day' on my visit too? WRONG! Time has not improved the tea experience at 'Vintage Tea Leaf'. Food was terrible: bland and stale. Service was...sadly...still far below the expectations of any true 'Afternoon Tea' patron. I'm actually quite sad as this is the closest tea room to me. Ms. Beverly, I think you're in the wrong business honey. Public relations does not become you.
