Serenity tearoom offers a Maryland take on the traditional afternoon tea. The staff were very friendly, and the tearoom itself is elegant and peaceful without being frilly or overly formal. If you're having tea for two, try to request one of the window tables overlooking the street. The tea and tea tray were of very good quality from the scone to sandwiches and desserts. I've had tea in hotels and small tearooms in a few places in the U.S. and in England, and the only cons here are that the choices are overwhelming for guests, and the scone isn't a traditional scone (sorry but I like the crumbly texture of a typical scone). I'd recommend that the owner could cut down on the number of teas offered as well as the number of options for soups, jams and curds. I think most people who've had afternoon tea don't expect that much of a selection, and it would save the time of staff explaining the day's menu to each table. Or perhaps the staff could simply write the day's offerings on a board in the main room? Nice experience overall, but as I said, just a little overwhelming!
