If you want to escape the fast-paced world and really enjoy a lunch at your own pace, you must go to Laura's Tea Room. The food is excellent; the service is super; the decor of the room takes you back to a time that no longer exists for most of us today. It is a wonderful experience. Sampling all of the teas of the day is fun. My favorite was their special ice tea with peach slices. After lunch, stop downstairs and check out the variety of gifts in the beautifully restored old store. You will be happy you took the ride to Ridgeway, SC.
