After hearing much praise about chado tea room for the past several years, I was finally able to get there with six of my friends. we had an excellent experience. when we entered the tea room,we were greeted by our server then we were courteously seated and we were given the tea and food options. the tea menu is just overwhelming over forty pages they are all stacked on the wall in a beautiful brown tins. we had their Afternoon tea service and combinations; everything was just fantastic. the scones were marvelous - wonderful texture and just-right flavor. The food selections offered more than enough variety. My personal favorite, a very tasty cream of tomato soup, and waldorf salad. one of my friends had the salmon and carrot soup combination which was just amazing.the tea making process was quite appropriate, done with perfection and artistry. The conversation with our server about our many options for tea, and the character of many of the teas we did not know, was almost as much fun as our actual tea and food was outstanding.And of course, our service staff was excellent, friendly and most helpful.
