The Tea Room was an easy walk from our hotel. The guys had a four hour break from their conference, so they decided to join us for lunch at The Tea Room.
Once again, I forgot to take photos of the gift shop which is right inside the front door. There are many books, china teacups, teapots, and of course tea for sale, among other things. There is one wall of silver tea canisters with an impressive selection of fine quality loose leaf teas for sale.
Since I hadn’t made a reservation for afternoon tea, I chose this turkey avocado wrap from the lunch menu. It was filled with moist, freshly roasted turkey breast, bacon, avocado, tomato and cheese with aioli sauce. It was served warm in a whole wheat wrap – so delicious.
Hubby had the salad of the day with Applewood bacon, watermelon, onion and a tasty vinaigrette type dressing. All of us had gazpacho soup (very refreshing). Our friends said the quiche was very good too. We enjoyed iced peach, Temi Sikkim, Pinhead Gunpowder and Assam Mangalam tea.
Our dessert was a piece of vanilla cake, cranberry scone, shortbread and fruit. I’d already started to eat this before snapping the picture. My friend asked if she could have chocolate cake instead and that was quickly brought to the table.
I’ve never been disappointed at this tea room. I’d still like to tell you about The Green Truck Pub (great for lunch) outside the historic district. The Olde Pink House was memorable for dinner. We also had fish and chips at Molly Macpherson's Scottish Pub & Grill where the waiters wear kilts.
