Special Teas has been around for years at the same location--a tribute to its appeal and steady quality. It specializes in teas and sandwiches. Don't expect to get in and out fast. This is a venue for a relaxed conversation with friends. Recommended!

I visited mid week with my daughter who had a day off from school. The decor is charming and homey. It took a while before anyone came to take our drink orders. We both ordered tea, and ordered our lunch at the same time, since...More
