Tea Room Menu
Afternoon Tea is a British tradition inspired by Duchess Anne of Bedford in the 1800s to provide light refreshment between the lunch and evening meal. The tradition has evolved into a lovely time of sweets, savories, scones, and tea served on a 2- or 3-tier server which can be enjoyed anytime of day. It is often mistakenly referred to as "High Tea", which is a completely different affair. At the Dragonfly Tea Room you have two choices of Afternoon Tea, both of which require a reservation of one day advance notice.
