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 to Elizabeth’s Bakery & Tea Shop. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of tea, scones, meat pies, and homemade fare.
- For $50, you get $100 worth of catering services.
A quaint brick home converted into an Anglophilic oasis, Elizabeth’s Bakery & Tea Shop charms snack seekers with sweet treats and savory lunches made fresh in-house plus catering and party services for any occasion in need of sophisticated charm. Day-sippers can sample the shop’s long list of teas ($5.75 for 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) and 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).
Elizabeth’s also applies its English expertise to social gatherings with a full catering menu replete with homemade culinary delights. Impress guests with savory mini quiches ($10.50/dozen) and cheese-and-bacon puffs ($11.50/dozen) or pay homage to the quaint countryside with English scones that come in a variety of flavors, such as cheese, ginger, cranberry orange, raisin, or plain ($10.95/dozen for 1.5”, $17.95/dozen for 3”). All noshes can be paired with teas and coffee that will dance upon your tongue and stream down your throat before warming you up from crust to core.
Elizabeth's English Bakery

While serving both takeaway and catering orders, customers can also relax with a hot cuppa and enjoy a scone in the bakery.
