Blanche is a wonderful hostess and runs an excellent tearoom. I had the Afternoon tea with soup and it was a very nice, filling tea. Everything was fresh and made with quality ingredients, you can taste the difference...and little extra touches make the food items exceptional. I enjoyed the variety, five different sandwhiches, scones, with tea bread, and pastries...not to mention the chocolate covered strawberry!! The setting is very nice, but not too stuffy. Real china cups (a must!!) and even raw sugar cubed. Add all that with an oustanding and friendly hostess very knowledgable in her tea blends makes for a most enjoyable time. I will be back and bringing friends next time!
