Tearoom Review

I always go to TeaGuide.net or TeaMap.com when looking for a tearoom to visit. It was at Tea Guide that I found Lady Ann's Tearoom, in Stuart, Florida and this was the first tearoom I visited after moving here. It's a lovely Victorian-style tearoom in a renovated home, located in historic downtown Stuart. My mama was visiting, so we decided to make a day of it and did some shopping afterwards.


Here's my sweet mama, ready to go to the tearoom



Lady Ann's Tearoom, Stuart, FloridaReservations are necessary and I can see why--the place was packed! The menu consists of soups, salads, and entree items such as quiche, chicken and seafood dishes. They offer many tempting desserts, as well as iced tea and, of course, hot tea. Reservations for a Full Afternoon Tea are only accepted on Saturdays. I was very happy with my choice of lobster bisque. I also enjoyed the shrimp & crab quiche--which was served with potato salad and fruit. I decided to try their raspberry iced instead of hot tea, because of the warm weather that day.



The lobster bisque Shrimp & Crab Quiche, potato salad, and fruitOur visit was during the Christmas holidays and the tearoom was decorated with beautiful trees for the season. The ambiance was perfect and we both had a wonderful visit there.



I am giving Lady Ann's "Miss Janice's Five Silver Spoons Award." I loved it and I will definitely return!

Thank you for visiting with me today. I hope that you will visit Tea Map or Tea Guide and find a tearoom to visit at home or when traveling. If you are in the Stuart, Florida area, visit Lady Ann's Tearoom at 506 SE Camden Avenue, or visit her online at Lady Ann's Tearoom.



May you be steeped in His love, infused in His Mercy, and sweetened with His grace.

Oh! I am jealous, a tea room and your mom...what a treat. Can't wait to find a new tea room to visit with a new friend since you moved away.

A Hint of Home said...

Sounds like a lovely place.
Are you close to Dade City?
While I was in FL recently, I went there to a place called Lunch on the Limoge. It's a very nice place with excellant food.
Hope you and your Mom had a great time. She looks very elegant in the pic.
