I have been to Jacqueline's Tea Room several times in the last few years, and always come away happy, relaxed, full of tea - and feeling that I shared a wonderful experience with my companions. Jacqueline is an excellent hostess/proprietor. She blends her own teas so she is able to easily describe their elements, and is happy to recommend based on the tea drinker's interests and/or the foods being served. The food is always fresh and thoughtfully prepared, and I have yet to have the same thing twice - save for the delicious cucumber sandwiches. To be honest, if she just served me a plate full of the cucumber sandwiches I would be happy, but instead, she takes time to craft a beautiful array of different tasty treats with which I have never been dissatisfied. Her scones are to die for. Just what I look for in a scone: still slightly warm from the oven, delicate, fragrant. Take me back there now!!!
In addition to the pleasure of afternoon tea, Jacqueline also sells her teas, has a wonderful assortment of tea cups, tea pots, books on tea and other tea accessories plus assorted other items for sale. Definitely a feminine atmosphere and the perfect experience for women to share. The price per person might seem steep (no pun intended), but once you've been there, you'll realize the value.
