Coco’s Tea Room & Bistro
Situated amid grand columns, flowing curtains, and the golden fabric of high-backed chairs, the main tearoom of Coco’s Tea Room & Bistro surrounds patrons in the grandeur of a traditional high tea. Steaming pots of tea for two are full of the steeping leaves of free-trade teas in varieties such as darjeeling second flush oolong, or organic blueberry rooibos. To accompany teas, patrons can order homemade cakes and cobblers crowned with scoops of ice cream. Heartier meals of café-style food include muffuletta sandwiches, slices of garden quiche, and caesar salads, led unknowingly to tabletops to meet the forks of their destruction.
