Empress Tea Room & Bistro
Soft lights tumble from the crystal chandeliers of Empress Tea Room & Bistro, landing on white table linens and glinting off delicate bone-china sets as diners soak up the sights and smells. The restaurant hosts visitors for lunch throughout the week as well as during Saturday high-tea sessions and Sunday brunch hours. In addition to the elegant main dining room, Empress welcomes guests into an interior garden room, which surrounds them with murals of vines. After perusing the lunch menu, visitors can enjoy specialties such as the Anna Cordelia sandwich with smoked turkey, cranberry, and melted brie, or the vegetable quiche with seasonal vegetables and cheeses. WiFi access and board games are also available to provide entertainment for diners.
Love how the Tea Room has just that elegant touch of class without being gauche. The antiques are beautiful and look like one of a kind pieces.Marian B, Urbanspoon, 9/20/11
