This week at Gracious Hospitality Tea Blog-A-Thon the topic is tea rooms. We are to"Share all about one of your favorite tea rooms. Use photos and descriptions to tell about the decor and ambiance, menus, service, and what makes this tea room special to you. "
Sadly I don't have photos of one of my favorite tea houses "Pineridge Hollow" here in Manitoba. The pictures I do have are of friends having tea there, but none of the shoppe itself. The owner has an imaginative style and the grounds are lovely, and often used for weddings and social events. There is a greenhouse where I often purchase unusual plants. The tea house is situated just outside the boundary of one of our Provincial parks so I am sure many campers enjoy a break from camp food .
I do have some shots of a nice shop (above and below,). and although it is not touted as a tea shop, we love to go there for some of their lovely pastries. It is Bachman's Nursery and garden shop in Minneapolis. The floral displays around the cafe make the surroundings great . My hubby and I were enjoying a cherry pastry there just last week, wich is why I missed out on posting for the table setting.
Below, on a checked tablecloth, is a nicely presented dessert which we enjoyed in Glasgow, Scotland, but I don't recall the name of the tea shop.
