Ok. So, I’d seen some pictures of the Gryphon Tea Room online, but actually being there? Well, the pictures don’t do it true justice. Imagine being besties with Belle and the Beast, and being invited to have tea in the library...that’s the Gryphon! It is so classy with authentic mahogany wood panels, Tiffany-inspired lampshades and books galore!! I mean, old tomes with red and black binding! I had a great time locating my favorites on the shelves and were inspired to read a few new ones.
Now, to the food. It was WONDERFUL! I hade their tea tray. It’s $20, but I thought it was well-worth it, especially the mini deserts; the scones were amazing, too. The fruit was fresh. I had a wonderful tea, but I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t remember what it’s called. Trust your server’s (they’re very helpful and knowledgeable, by the way) recommendation and have fun figuring out how to open the honey! Also, because I was feeling glutinous, I order their ham quiche. Sigh. That’s it. Just, “sigh.” You’ll really like this place!
