ANZAC Tea is my absolute favorite place to get desserts and tea. I have frequented the restaurant for at least two years, and have visited for the last year and a half with my girlfriend. I will come back from college, which is hours away, with a constant goal of visiting the lovely little parlour with my friends or significant other. I cannot pinpoint what I appreciate the most, because I like everything about my visits.
The tea is fantastic. One may choose from a selection of black, green, white, herbal, and mix teas, with my favorites being the Pomegranate-Lemon Black Tea, Madura, Jasmine Dragon Tears (a green tea), or Fairytale Garden (The ANZAC mix). The prices for the food and tea are more than reasonable given how amazing the tea is, and how wonderful the food tastes. I can go there on a cheap college student budget and have a full experience, if that says anything of worth to the reader of this review.
The first time I visited I was so tickled when I learned you are supposed to pick out your own tea cup from their selection, and I frequent enough that I actually have favorites. There are also various other teacups, teapots, and other goods for sale in the parlour room, and I particularly enjoy being able to buy loose tea to take home or to college with me.
The atmosphere is calm and welcoming and the owners, Bev and Alan Eagy, always go the extra mile to make your visit a memorable one. They talk with customers, and take a genuine interest in making sure everyone is happy. They may offer up some local or Australian history, or relevant story when one visits, and are always warm when dealing with customers. The Eagys always seem to offer some kind gesture toward patrons, which makes the experience of dining there even more pleasant.
Listed above are some of the salient points (yes, salient, I could continue for much much longer) about ANZAC, and what comes to mind when I think of the place. Great local place, and is my back from college favorite!
