In recent years, adults have wrested teatime from the iron grip of little girls, English aristocrats, and brooding writers with caffeine-sensitivity. Indulge in an afternoon cuppa with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of light, refined lunch fare at Tea at the White House, located in Waterdown.
Billeted in a quaint, blanched century home, Tea at the White House makes afternoon sipping and nibbling a priority with a stock of more than 100 types of black, green, and herbal teas, as well as sweet and savoury bites. Midday hunger pangs dissipate through an inter-dimensional portal with dishes from the White House's locally sourced, seasonal menu. Nestle into one of two tea-rooms with a steaming crepe or the chicken sweet-and-sour salad ($14), a local favourite. If weather permits, friend-toting foodies can stretch out on the deck with the specialty Dorset Tea ($21)—two tiers of finger sandwiches accompanied by a belly-warming pot of tea and the inception of a tandem spirit animal. For less ambitious teetotalers, the Devonshire Cream Tea ($9.50) hits the spot with a simple spread of freshly baked scones and Devon double cream and preserves, served with your choice of regular priced tea.
