Destination Tea Notes: Every now and again, we experience a tea that is so scrumptious from start to finish, we feel the need to gush. Thinking on our recent visit to Fergusson’s on the Square, that feeling has come upon us again. Put Fergusson’s on your bucket list if you are anywhere in the vicinity because this is a worthy destination tea trip to make. Why? 1.: the husband-and-wife owners have created an entirely made-from-scratch menu that is both generous and 2. very fairly priced, and 3. their service is attentive and accommodating. Step through the door under the hanging teapot sign and you’ve stepped back in time one hundred years. Ragtime background music properly sets the scene inside this early 1910s building, where we note men joining their wives for afternoon tea, possibly because this tearoom balances feminine lace and china with masculine dark tones, soft lighting, brick walls and arches. Whether you take your fella or go with the girls, the important thing is that you get to experience the deliciousness of Fergusson’s!
