The Crown and Crumpet Tea Room
As a child, Lorraine, the owner of The Crown and Crumpet Tea Room, lived with her family above a restaurant in the United Kingdom, eventually owning her own teahouse, Petticoat Tails, in Winchcome in the Cotswolds. Years later, after moving to Ontario, Lorraine came across a historical brick house built in 1929, and immediately saw its potential as a classic teahouse. The home gives one the sensation of having stepped into another time and place, furthered by antique tea sets and imported British candies including blackcurrant licorice and toffee bonbons.
Beneath the crisp lines of British flags hanging from the walls, the family uses produce and ingredients from local farms to make lunch, high tea, and dessert each day. Lorraine’s rotating menus have included leek-and-goat-cheese quiche with fresh local asparagus as well as lamb with mango chutney carved tableside. In a sunny outside garden, cups click against saucers painted with colourful sprays of flowers like the world’s least intimidating monster truck.
