From the moment you walk in you know it's going to be different. The decor is antique and vintage down to the tablecloths. The attention to detail in service and presentation is gorgeous. I ordered the Full Afternoon Tea. It included a teapot for one (2 cups) of my choice of tea (Darjeeling), and a tiered-rack of goodies. The top plate held an incredible blueberry scone with real clotted cream and strawberry jam, and two gingersnap cookies. The 2nd plate held crustless cucumber sandwiches and turkey sandwiches, and the bottom plate held a delicious chocolate cake with raspberry icing. This was all $13.95. There's a lot to look at and the aromas inside were mouthwatering. My friend ordered the butternut squash and apple soup and it was incredible. I've only been once but have made plans to go back next week and as long as they're open I believe to make myself known there. It's a 40 minute drive from my house but that's hardly a deterrent for this experience. Just a very pleasant experience altogether.

Pros: OMG the scones!

Cons: a little hard to find?

This newly relocated tea shop has such a quaint and charming atmosphere. It feels like stepping back in time to the 1920s during the tea shop craze. They serve a variety of light fare as well as high tea. The scenes are served with clotted cream and jam and are light and delicious. There are dozens of flavors and varieties of tea to choose from. Each pot comes with hot water, a tea strainer and tea leaves covered with a tea cozy - no tea bags and microwaves here. I enjoyed raspberry leaf tea. The shop also sells British imported foods and antiques. The only drawback to this shop is that it is not located in a more populated area. It's off the beaten path for tourists.

Bristol's loss in Warren's gain! Owner Fab Goldberg has taken her recipe for success to a whole new level in this beautifully refurbished warehouse space in Warren's Cutler Mills. The perfect place for a leisurely afternoon lunch, a wedding or baby shower, or a Friday night cocktail for the live jazz!
