I would like to take the women in my family out for high tea. Any recommendations in Bangor or points east or northeast of Bangor?
Is this a serious question???! When were you hoping to have this High Tea? I doubt very much you will find such an opportunity in Bangor, Maine or any points east or northeast. Maybe Canada. Maybe Tea with Eleanor at Campobello in the summer season, about a three hour drive from Bangor.
I think you are actually looking for an Afternoon Tea, which has Tea, scones, jams, sandwiches and pastries.
High Tea is usually at the kitchen table and involves a mug of tea, bread, vegetables, cheese and meat. Also potatoes, pigeon, or veal pie, and crackers. More a meal for the working class.
Another place in Freeport is:
Thanks for the information. I knew my Santa Rosa, California version of High Tea is not the proper British style that you suggest. What I regularly indulge in here at the Tudor Rose English Tea Room is pot of tea w/milk and, a choice pasties, sandwiches, scones w/clotted cream, pot pies, sausage roll, soup, salad, tarts and other yummy items. Of course the owner is a very proper English Lady. Tea is at 4 o'clock, but available earlier for those who choose to eat it as a luncheon. I have eaten the same on both sides of the pond.
Circle K they have whoopie pies
Bangor is candlepin bowling and whoopie pies as jim d mentions. Probably Bar Harbor has some snooty faux English ladies but downeast its not de rigueur. However you can grab a bag of chips and a moxie and cruise by Stephen King´s house in Bangor...Or Sonny´s Tavern in Ellsworth would be the locals´ equivalent for afternoon refreshment.
