My love of baking led me here! Both Nana and Grandma introduced me to this beloved pastime when I was very young, and even now, the smell of freshly baked scones takes me back to Nana's kitchen, from where they would emerge, along with delicious fresh cucumber sandwiches and Earl Grey tea, as if by magic.
Growing up in Lancashire helped me hone my baking skills. There are cafes and tearooms around every corner, each offering tempting baked goods to delight the senses and inspire you to go scurrying back to the kitchen to knead dough and press out pastry.
After marrying a handsome American in 2012 and moving to Austin, Texas, I stumbled upon the perfect spot for an English inspired tearoom. Five years later, I am over the moon to still be bringing out pots of freshly brewed tea, scones to smother with jam and clotted cream, and rich, decadent sweets to your table.
How lucky we are that afternoon tea is not just about the food and drink, but it is an experience to be reveled in. How could you not feel fancy with a teacup betwixt thumb and forefinger; a crisp tablecloth laden with treats; and a teapot full of hot tea to flow alongside your conversation.
We cannot wait to welcome you to our tearoom!
