We checked out this location because we found a Groupon for Historic High Tea for Two and decided that it may be fun to check out. We stopped here after visiting a museum and Yankee Distillery nearby and figured we could get a bite to eat to tide us over until dinner. Historic high tea for each person comes with either soup or salad, 3 types of tea sandwiches (you get 2 of each kind), 1/2 a pot of any tea you like on the menu, 2 types of scones and a variety of dessert (for two of us we had two cupcakes, 2 cookies and a pastry). We had the carrot ginger soup and seriously it was sooo delicious and it came in a big bowl not a tiny cup which we expected. Everything was yummy. The place was busy so obviously it has a following. They also have other menu items like a traditional breakfast/lunch stop would have so more than just tea. I did not find it pricey, it was quite reasonable and our Historic High Tea actually filled us up so much we couldn't finish it all and we were too full for dinner. The Groupon ticket was a good deal since all we had to cover was tax ($4) and the tip. We also got to see some planes take off since it backs up to a portion of the airport. Even though they were busy the staff lets you take your time - they don't rush you at all. I love the menagerie of cute antique tea cups and plates they use as well.
