The only way to describe this place is to say that it is an EXPERIENCE! The food was amazing, something I would have expected to be eating at the Dorchester in London not in Albuquerque. Its a lot of food too; you may only get one bit sized edible of each offering but you get tons of offerings. My mom and I were positively full by the time our 2 hours was up. The tea was wonderful and paired very well with the food. You get 3 courses and 3 teas to complement them. The atmosphere is to die for! There was one large room for large parties and then there were private dining rooms each decorated in a different english style for parties 4 and less. The St. James Tearoom transports you and you may not want to come back from your destination; I know I didn’t.
