Aggie’s chefs cull fresh, seasonal ingredients to craft salads, sandwiches, and wraps from scratch and whisk the finished entrees to the doily-draped tables of a Victorian tearoom. Juicy apples, blue cheese, and mandarin oranges rest on a bed of spring-mix greens in the apple-walnut salad. Cloth napkins dab at smudged monocles following splattery nibbles of roast beef au jus sandwiches or southwestern wraps filled with grilled chicken or beef and doused in black-bean salsa.
Sips of flavored herbal iced teas or steaming mugs of gourmet hot tea clear palates as fingers hunt leftover crumbs on fine-china terrains. Pastel pinks meld with floral prints on the walls that surround lunching guests who enjoy high tea amid tidbits of lace, vintage dolls, and stolen portraits of other people’s grandmothers.
Aggie’s Closet and Tea Room
Not many restaurants arm their patrons with the apparel to play dress-up. But at Aggie’s Closet and Tea Room, youngsters and their adult charges can head up to the closet, where they rifle through dresses, feather boas, and flower-adorned hats to don while sipping tea, munching on cucumber sandwiches, and scoffing at flying machines like real Victorians. Downstairs, in the Victorian-inspired dining room, guests savor herbal tea from fine china and nosh on handmade, seasonal salads, sandwiches, and wraps. During the warmer months, the tearoom opens up its wine and beer garden, where live music on the weekends serenades guests.
