Take a Bow, Martin!

We had a repeat visit today at the Tea Room from a couple who came for Lunch. They ordered a Mushroom Quiche, Chicken Kebab Wrap and a Salmon Sandwich along with Tea. They were looked after by our very personable, well-liked Server, Martin.

Finding Love at Silver Tips

Two months ago, we received an intriguing e-mail.  One of our customers explained to us that on November 4, 2014, he had his first date with his girlfriend at our 'beautiful tea room'.

Afternoon Tea, not High Tea

Even the most upscale establishments incorrectly refer to the elegant Afternoon Tea as "high tea".  It's understandable since the word 'high' has connotations of 'superior'.  Consider high society or higher-than-thou or even high-and-mighty.  But not in this case.  The wonderfully laid out Tea Service consisting of tea sandwiches, scones and petit fours was originally served at a low table in England somewhere between 4 and 5 pm to provide a break between lunch...
