Afternoon Tea Or High Tea @ English Tea Room
The English Tea Room delivers on the promise of its name exactly. Owner Jan Lantrip is obsessively knowledgeable about tea–she even creates her own blends–and everything that goes with it. Afternoon tea is available all the time, and is highlighted by excellent scones–not too dry, not too sweet, beautiful to look at, with lemon curd, jam, and sweet butter.
Many little sandwiches and cookies are in the offing. High tea–a different, more substantial meal traditionally taken in early evening–is also here all the time and wonderful, particularly for the shepherd’s pie and the Buckingham bake (a cross between an egg scramble and an omelette).
