I visited the Enchanted Rose with my mother, who had never been to a tea room before. It was a wonderful first trip for us both, and I expect we'll be back many more times, with friends and relatives in tow! The ladies were wonderful; very warm and charming. The flavor combinations of the food were surprisingly good [we loved the pineapple/pecan sandwiches and the pimento cream cheese]. The tea was delicious and warm, and the hostess was very patient in explaining the selection to us. Our plates were served and taken away promptly, with minimal fuss. The decor is both charming and elegant, and we both loved the idea that we could wear hats back to our table. It was like stepping back into our childhood to play tea. The hostess was even so kind as to take a poloroid of us to commemorate our visit! Our fellow diners [a Red Hat Society] were fun and very companionable. Afterwards, there is plenty of boutique and antique shopping nearby to keep yourself occupied for a few hours. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable experience; one that my mother and I will both treasure. Thank you!
