I go to tea rooms a lot. My thirteen year old granddaughter is my tea drinking partner. We were delighted with Ana Bealls. We had the high tea and the scones were fabulous. We got a to-go order for the next day's breakfast! The tea sandwiches were great and I especially enjoyed the hummas ones. A nice addition to the tuna, chicken, and egg salad selections. the deserts were tasty and I confess I spread the sweet whipped cream that came with the scones on everything. The tea was served in individual pots and if you like what you were served, you can purchase some to take home. I bought the Chocolate Chai . Yummy!
They have a small gift shop with some really cute tea-themed items. You can also peruse the pictures of the family of Ana Beall hanging in the shop area.
We went in the late afternoon and there was hardly anyone there. In talking to the very cordial young man who took care of us, lunch time and weekends are when they are busiest. They also host private parties, so it may be best to call and make a reservation if you are planning to go during a busy time. The decor is simple and elegant and I can see gentlemen being as comfortable here as the ladies.
