English Garden Tea Cafe

They were practicing folding napkins
and we were the grateful recipients.
Good job!
Of course we start with dessert, doesn't everyone.
Fresh strawberries and cream, yummmm!
Don't worry there was another tiered stand nearby.
We definitely didn't walk away hungry.
On the bottom there were creamy egg salad sandwiches,
very tasty cucumber sandwich, and chicken salad with fresh grapes.
The middle had plain and raisin scones with lemon curd and two jams on the side.
The top had chocolate raspberry brownie and pecan bars.
Oh but we weren't finished yet!
To top the tea time there was a pumpkin bread pudding with caramel sauce.
Everything was delicious!
This was their Rose Tea, which also included a perfect brewed pot
of tea for each of us.
They serve Jasmine Pearl's teas, which delighted me, as I know Jasmine Pearl
has wonderful teas.  There was even a timer set on the table for the
perfect time to remove the T-sac of tea from the pot.
Well done, English Garden Tea Cafe!

It had been awhile since I had been to afternoon tea;
so when I heard there was a new tea cafe not to far from home
off I went.  Along came my "live-in gardener" and a friend from college.
All three of us thoroughly enjoyed the time together and sharing tea
at the English Garden Tea Cafe.

Looks delightful! I love it when afternoon tea presents little surprises like your *dessert first* and the mini dessert at the end.
So happy that you tried this new tea café and then shared it with us.

Are any of those lovely ladies British Marilyn? Looks like they have afternoon tea down to a science - everything looks and sounds yummy, and could easily be from a real English tea room.
Making me homesick just looking - next time we're together we have to go there!

Thanks for sharing and so glad you enjoyed it all so much.
Hugs - Mary

This spot looks like a real treasure, Marilyn. Oh, it all looks delish and so beautifully served! Definitely a danger if it's too close to home!
