Stationed in an old house of the city's historic district, Roswell Teahouse looks and feels like a relict from the 1920s. But it's not just the appearance that takes guests back in time. For inside, the spirit of high tea lives on. Elegant trays support homemade desserts, scones, and lemon curd, all enjoyed by diners dressed in their afternoon best as they chat and politely arm-wrestle over cups of tea. The 100 different types of leaves hail from across the globe, steeping slowly in a cast-iron tea pot to maximize flavor.
For lunch, Roswell serves a variety of homemade and organic meals, including a Belgian chicken pot pie and green-apple tuna melt. Many of its offerings are designed to improve wellness, such as the beauty booster salad, which comes with omega-3 oils and vitamins.
