Americans’ failure to adopt the European concept of “tea time” has caused other Old World culinary customs to wane, from Double Biscuit Tuesdays to Crumpet History Month. Partake of palatable transatlantic practices with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of tea, scones, meat pies, and more at Elizabeth’s Bakery & Tea Shop, near Trolley Square.
A quaint brick home converted into an Anglophilic oasis, Elizabeth’s Bakery & Tea Shop charms snack seekers with a host of potable pleasures, as well as sweet treats and savory lunches made fresh in-house. Day-sippers can sample the shop’s long list of teas ($5.75 for a full pot), including a soothing chamomile, honey, and vanilla blend and a peppermint tea that refreshes tuckered taste buds the way bracing gatorade baths refresh dozing football coaches. The Billionaire Flapjack fulfills fans of circular snackery ($3.25), while the Millionaire Shortbread makes up for what it lacks in megawealth with flavorful moxie ($2.95). For heartier nibbling, diners can dig into the chicken-and-mushroom pie, a satisfying synthesis of poultry and fungi encased in flaky crust ($7.25).
Examiner.com, the Utah Hive, and Second Hand Chicks all positively reviewed Elizabeth's English Bakery & Tea Shop. More than 10 Yelpers give the business a 3.5-star average, and 96% of Urbanspooners like it.
Elizabeth's English Bakery
