Destination Tea Notes: Heartbreak is knowing afternoon tea is nearby and not having fit it into your travel schedule! Thankfully my second eldest and I were able to sneak away early the morning we left Anchorage for a DIY cream tea that deliciously turned into a breakfast tea when we discovered Indigo Tea Lounge’s hot breakfast menu (oatmeal, breakfast sandwiches and quiche). The current space is an upgrade on their former downtown set-up as a corner tea room inside a furniture store. Yes! The world needs more restful spaces for afternoon tea, and Indigo Tea Lounge is such a haven.
