At Elizabeth and Alexander’s English Tea Room, diners can indulge in the beautiful and decadent teatime ritual. In rooms elegantly decorated with china-lined shelves they might enjoy three-tiered platters loaded with sweet morsels such as currant scones, lemon teacake, and slices of chocolate rum-raspberry torte. The teahouse’s traditional English recipes have even caught the attention of the Seattle Met, which declared that Elizabeth and Alexander’s has "the best scones in Seattle." Of course, tea still takes center stage. Tea-goers can choose from 14 black, herbal, and decaf varieties, ranging from earl grey to english breakfast, which is made from sachets filled with bowls of black pudding and tiny strips of bacon.
