Last week I visited my daughter in Rochester and she took me to La-Tea-Da Tea Room and Parlor for lunch:
The first thing we did when we arrived was to find attire in the tea room, so that we were dressed appropriately!
They had many hats, stoles, gloves, etc. My sister-in-law, Cathy, joined us:
And here's Caitlin, my youngest daughter:
Each table was set with a tea pot, cups and saucers and a bell to ring if we needed service:
All of the china was mix and match:
The two rooms were decorated with cute tea paraphernalia ....
and tea pots in every theme imaginable!
We had a great lunch of chicken salad wraps, salad and fresh fruit!
I immediately spied this hand painted Chippendale mirror in the "dress up" area for children:
And it was suggested that we try their signature dessert....sorry, but we dove into it so quickly that I never got a photo of the strawberry covered scone with ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup...
So, if you are ever in Rochester, NY and looking for a fun place to have lunch, try La-Tea-Da
Each place setting has a milk glass covered dish to hold cheesy scrambled eggs:
Eggs, fruit salad, apple cinnamon muffins, crisp bacon, mimosas and tea and coffee will be served.
Cheery poppies brighten up the table:
The fruit bowls ($.59 ea at thrift shop), cups and saucers ($.39 ea at thrift shop), and main dishes (6/$3.00 at a garage sale) are Westmoreland milk glass. The Toscany heart shaped dishes were purchased years ago at Marshall's.
I handpainted the charger plates:
as well as the individual butter dishes and salt and pepper shakers:
