The Gilbertsville Tea Room
From its Victorian-era brick façade to its tiniest teacup, The Gilbertsville Tea Room is unapologetically pink. It’s a suitable hue for the oft-feminized tradition of teatime. In addition to the color scheme, the tearoom’s three parlors treat dining companions to dainty flourishes such as flowered wallpaper, tiny teacups hanging from hooks and chandeliers, and draping ivy. Teatime is a similarly dainty affair: chefs assemble finger sandwiches garnished with colored cream-cheese flowers and serve flaky scones with Devonshire cream. Thirty loose-leaf teas fill the china, giving upturned pinkies plenty of chances to look refined and signal to tablemates where you'll throw the cup when you're done.
