Best Place to Bond with Your Mom - 2009
Lady Elegant's Tea Room & Gift Shoppe
What could be more fun than bonding with Mom over a proper cup of tea and a pile of sweets? Guests at Lady Elegant's Tea Room and Gift Shoppe can select from 85 varieties of tea in the saccharine-sweet tearoom, which is decorated with flowers and ribbons and shiny tablecloths galore. Tea menus range from the simple cream tea (scones with English Double-Devon cream and preserves) for $10 to a full four-course parlor menu (salad or soup, sandwiches, scones, and desserts) for $25. Special events include a Grand Ol' Irish Tea in March; a mystery tea with Laura Childs, local author of the Tea Shop Mystery series; and a Mother's Day tea. Call ahead for reservations.
