Our small town boasts one of Missouri’s top rated Tearooms as ranked by Teamap.com. It is actually the only tearoom I have ever visited but based on my experiences here I would love to visit others. It is located on the lower level of Henry’s Antiques and Collectibles, both of which are housed in a former historic church.
On this particular day, there were four entrees to choose from, each described in detail by our server. All selections included rustic potato soup, a croissant and a salad with vinaigrette dressing. A few in our party choose the Spinach and Bacon quiche.
A few others choose the chicken salad.
The portions were just perfect for lunch and everything tasted wonderful. After the entrees were cleared, we were shown the dessert tray.
I am pretty sure I gained five pounds just looking at this platter. Since dessert is part of the price of lunch we felt obligated to indulge. No one really had to twist our arms very hard. Our choices included Missouri Mud cake, Carrot Cake, Bread Pudding, Ganache topped Chocolate Cake, Susie Q cake and Tea Cake. A very difficult decision!
Besides being a very enjoyable way to spend a Saturday afternoon, I was inspired to add a Tea Party to my ever expanding list of entertaining options for my Small Gatherings Project. Tea anyone?
