Destination Tea Notes: Seven years after our first visit, we find much has remained the same at this French neighborhood bistro’s afternoon tea. Entirely made in house, afternoon tea here is served in plentiful portions even as the price remains so affordable. Perhaps for this reason, you can overlook the run-of-the-mill tea bags that don’t brew properly with the hot water brought out in large teapots (it’s just not hot enough). On both of our visits, our server was kind and welcomed us to be at our leisure. This time, the homemade cakes caught our eye, and we wisely added a couple à la carte items to our meal.
