Mrs. Q says: Wonderful quiet place to enjoy some tea and lite bites. Had a wonderful afternoon with my daughter, just talking and enjoying one another’s company alone.
Tea, service and ambiance is great, indoor/outdoor seating. They have signs asking you to NOT use your cellphone – so you don’t hear someone saying, “can you hear me now?”
