I doubt anyone who lunches at this fascinating Tea Room will leave without a smile on their face and a memory of a fun time. This is not a tea room just for "ladies who lunch"...but a charming restaurant that both men and women will enjoy...we promise! It is located in a "can't miss it" pink heritage building in Arcadia. This town was badly damaged by Hurricane Charley almost nine years ago and has now become a mecca for antique buyers as well as rodeo buffs. You will be warmly greeted by one of the two proprietors - Dennis or Bruce - wearing top hat and tails...and enter a room filled with beautiful things from the Victorian age...including a working 1873 Estey Reed organ. There is a main dining room and a back parlor and since its opening, the restaurant has earned a well deserved loyal following. Their lobster bisque is out of this world - so is the clam chowder...everything is home made - the menu has plenty of delicious options from shrimp cocktails to soups and sandwiches, quiches, salads and wraps. Besides a selection of interesting teas (lemon lavender for instance), they serve wine and beer....all at reasonable prices. Make sure you save room for one of their fabulous desserts...we could not resist a homemade apricot scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam but we have heard their chocolate bread pudding and English sticky toffee pudding are also amazing. This restaurant is a real find and we urge you to try it. You surely will not be sorry! Suggest you call for a reservation - they are open from 11am to 4PM daily we understand people are waiting in line to get in! As for us - we can't wait to go back again soon!
