I wanted to rate this place better, but after my first visit, I doubt I’ll go back.

A friend & I went there & did the Tea for Two. First off, the entire staff had to come out & figure out what we were supposed to get. Duh! There was a sign on the register explaining the menu, but none of them knew about it. It’s bad when the customer has to point out your stupidity.

The meal was okay, but nothing special.
We had the avacado & hummus sandwich on black bread. It was okay, but again, nothing to really rave about.

There was a scone of the day which was a peanut butter banana flavor. When you eat out with a friend who is a pastry chef & he has to ask what the flavor is, you know it can’t be too good. And I know scones are usually a little dry, this one needed to be soaked in liquid to bite it! It wasn’t very good.

The desserts were brownies, a coffee cake with raspberry filling & fresh fruit. The fresh fruits were strawberries, blueberries & bananas….which were good. Definitely fresh. The brownie was a bit hard….like it wasn’t made fresh that morning. The coffee cake with the raspberry filling was pretty good.

As for the tea….we went with a coconut vanilla. It smelled delightful! It tasted okay. Not sure what brand or blend of tea they use, but I wouldn’t go back for another cup.

Sorry. I hate being harsh, but I thought this place was a disappointment from the start.
Doubt I’ll make it back for another shot.
