Raiding local trees and throwing their leaves in boiling water cuts down on aphid infestations, but it won't make a good cup of tea. Enjoy leaf-water made from ingestion-appropriate plants with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of lunch or full cream tea at Crumpets Lunch and Afternoon Tea Room, located on South Highland Street. This deal expires December 31, 2010.
With all the finery and elegance of an authentic English tearoom, Crumpets delivers a delectable lunch and afternoon tea to parched patrons in search of Anglo-Saxon atmosphere. Outside, a garden of perennials blooms around the patio, lending aromatic views to multi-sensed sippers slurping a variety of teas, coffees, and wines. Chef Stephen Sciara's lunch menu packs a chorus line of comestibles, including a pub burger ($11), tea sandwich sampler ($16), and Cornish pasties ($12) to high-kick hunger. A traditional full cream tea ($19.50) is served Thursday through Saturday from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. and includes a pot of tea or coffee, finger sandwiches, and freshly baked scones with jam and double Devon cream—triply tasty than single cream, according to recent studies by a panel of cockney child pickpockets. Reservations are required for full cream tea and recommended for lunch.
- The food is excellent, the only place in town you will find a true English tea room! – Amanda T.
- I live in Boston now and haven't found an equivalent in New England. Whenever I return home for the holidays, my sister and I always make the trek to Crumpet's for lunch. Visitors and local Memphians should, too! – Liz M.
