It was a surprise for which I was not prepared. An unpretentious yet comfortable looking storefront opened up into a welcoming warmth with a surprisingly diverse yet well-planned menu. If that in and of itself were not enough, my mouth salivated and begged for more with each bite, and though I was unable to experience every item on the menu my palate begged for more. I was constantly stretching over and grabbing from my daughter's plate in my quest to try as many items as I could fit. As a newcomer to Beacon I can guarantee that my rerurn visits to the Cup and Saucer will be frequent. I found the food to be as good as any comparable tea room in the City and the welcoming staff made this new Beacon resident fell entirely at home.
