The Painted Tea Cup started out as a place to celebrate special occasions. Now I go to make the day a special occasion. The atmosphere is very relaxing and once you are seated you don't want to leave. You are always greeted with the best service and the food is always a wonderful surprise. I always go for the High Tea.You need to make a reservation at least one day in advance. The cost is very reasonable and the food is fresh and delicious. There is also an extensive list of teas to choose from and the server continuously freshens up your cup. It also has a lovely gift shop with teas, homemade and handmade crafts. I always look forward to my next visit. Once you go your hooked.
