Down a few stairs, through the door....the scents of fresh-baked scones and fragrant teas fill the air. Art and quotations of Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece adorn the walls of this cozy inventive bakery/bistro. Brunch fare options are scrumptious, but we opted for “tea and scones”...the choices!!!...More

I had breakfast and tea here with a friend recently. What a charming restaurant/ tea place! A really nice change from all the formulaic restaurants around. Friendly staff, small but good selection of food items and nice collection of teas. Coffee available as well.

This was the perfect place for a lunchtime splurge. The tea was excellent, as expected, and served in beautiful mixed china. The scones were delicious, as was the intensely flavored ham served with them. We also enjoyed our sandwiches. The prices will look a bit...More

The scones are absolutely delicious. I had the pumpkin and buttermilk and can’t recommend them enough. The tea was also delicious and the decor was cool. It is a smaller restaurant so calling ahead might be a good idea.

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
