Try the afternoon tea. Park in public parking down the street on Raymond. Enjoy tea with a friend. Sandwiches are filling and taste great. What you expect when you think of afternoon tea.

The tearoom is small, but cozy. We had the full tea which consisted of tea sandwiches, scones and desert. The food was tasty and the selection of teas was extensive. The cost was average and on a par with other teas I have attended.
