Destination Tea Notes: Enter The English Rose Tea Room and your eyes are immediately drawn into a visual feast, where no two tables are alike, each with its own brightly patterned tablecloth and unique, seasonal tablescape. The space is cozy without feeling confined, bordered by multiple china cabinets teeming with the tearoom’s vast teacup collection. Spindle-back chairs remind us of times gone by as we settle in and peruse our many teatime options. Taking seriously our reviewer duties — to sample as many homemade treats as possible — we order several menus, pictured below. Our server is attentive, but also leaves us to our leisure, and hostess Shari Yauneridge checks on us to make sure we’ve enjoyed the results of her hard work – we have!
