Coco’s Tea Room & Bistro steeps Old World charm and European elegance into pots of imported, fair-trade teas, whose 12 in-house varieties meld with bites of gourmet sandwiches and pastries. Sustainably harvested Rishi teas float into the lavishly decorated salon from China, Japan, and India in varieties that include jasmine silver needle, organic Earl Grey, and antioxidant-rich rooibos passion fruit. Scones soak up Devonshire cream and atmospheric elegance, and savory, classic combinations of ingredients inhabit delicate tea sandwiches. Tucked within an antique mall, Coco’s Tea Room conjures 19th-century charm with gold-upholstered chairs, polished wood pillars, and billowing draperies, but without the ceaseless choirs of Dickensian orphans.
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.
