WARNING: Scroll no further, and do not look at any more of these pics, if you are currently so hungry that you could eat a stack of Post-Its.
Not kidding. I’m serious.
OK…if you read any further, don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
Oh, boy… I can’t even look at these pics without wishing I was there right now stuffing my face with tiny sandwiches, cakes and cookies the size of my thumb.
Little better than than Strawberry Pop-Tarts I’m having for breakfast right now! (Although sometimes a Pop-Tart really hits the spot, I can’t lie.)
The Signature Tea service is a wonderful way to take a break from shopping for a few hours if you’re ever visiting the city with friends. It costs $45 for ample ambience, a pot of tea for each person (chosen from among a wide variety of flavors) and savory sandwiches, sweets, scones and fruit for noms.
Everyone has a different nom-eating strategy, but I started with the savory sandwiches (the sliced cucumber ones with cream cheese were my favorite, followed closely by the egg salad), then moved on to the scones (which I doused in lemon curd), before finishing with the sweets, which included a gingerbread cookie that made me feel like I was melting into my chair…
Of course, the tea was delectable, too. I ordered the vanilla decaf black, and it perfectly paired with the snacks.
