Tea with the Queen Mother...

.......was marvelous! Steve, the Queen Mum and I decided to have tea at the tearoom in the village of Brooklin, just a ten min. drive north of the city. The owner says the house was built in the 1860's, and it was as delighful as a tearoom could be.

the Queen mum and Steven.

i loved the purplish iridescent little teapot

a tearoom upstairs for little ones.

3 rooms upstairs with antiques and quilts for sale.

this wee brass tea collection was sweet!

a lovely table for two by the hearth.

Steve had the cream of asparagus soup, it was the most delicious soup i have ever had!

our server, preparing our tea. note the cute tea sign.

i ordered the 'high tea' which included delectable crustless sandwiches, pink salmon, cucumber and cream cheese and egg salad, a scone with strawberry jam and clotted cream....yum! and a selection of desserts, a tiny chocolate cheescake, butter tart, lemon cake and a lemon curd tartlet with fresh strawberries.

pretty rose tea set.

the tearoom featured three rooms for dining.

and the restroom had a place to rest...with a book.

our table with pretty tea cups and pink carnations.

the Queen order coffee, alas, she was not a tea drinker!

next door was the cutest little bakery shop.

we bought a cherry pie to bring home.

a lovely day in the village for the three of us.
