I had the most fun at Crown and Crumpet. I got to do all of my favorite things- eat, talk and shop!
We had a reservation at 11 for afternoon tea. It is the perfect setting to sit and catch up with friends and family.
Since there were four of us, we got two orders of "tea for two." Each order came with:
-two large pots of tea (with endless hot water refills)
-three warm homemade scones with clotted cream
-two toasted crumpets with butter
-jam and lemon curd
-an assortment of eight tea sandwiches
-and a beautiful selection of pastries.
The four teas we tried were: sakramo, organic English breakfast, earl grey, and my favorite: Paris. Paris is infused "with tidbits of bergamot and vanilla" and it is so delicious!
Just being in the space makes you want to spend all day there, then the food comes and you'll never want to leave.
Enough! I know what you want...
Shrimp salad, egg salad, asparagus and cream cheese, cucumber and cream cheese and salmon sandwiches.
I was almost afraid to touch this, I didn't want to mess it up.
See? They are too pretty.
This place is too good to be true- this is just a peek at their great selection of candy.
Also available in travel size.
And attached to the dining area is the sweetest little shop. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was going to be trouble...
Cupcake candles! Delicious
Stamps shaped like cakes and cupcakes- a dream come true.
You'd think I'd get sick of cupcake shaped things but I just never do.
A very fun sticker letter set.
Crown & Crumpet's signature line; including a teapot, creamer, sugar bowl and tea cup.
Pastel+ gold rimmed= amazing set of tea cups and saucers.
A larger version.
and miniature pitchers- These are about an inch high.
I think it would be so fun to have a party here. Absolutely a great place to visit, even if you can't stay for tea. Be sure to say hello to Amy (one of the owners) she is a treat to talk to!
Looking at the website made me so excited to go and its 100 times better!
