Silver Fountain Inn & Tea Parlor – Reviews

I had such a wonderful experience here yesterday. I came in for afternoon tea with my mom and a few friends to celebrate my recent engagement! I don’t know where to begin- the Inn and Parlor are beautiful and so elegantly decorated. I felt like I stepped back in time and was at Downton Abbey! I ordered the Orange tea and the Duchess lunch. The tea was outstanding- I love that I had my very own teapot that was so unique! The sandwiches were tasty, especially the veggie wrap. The scones were INCREDIBLE- and the lemon butter sauce was so delicious, I could have eaten it with a spoon! I also loved the biscotti and petit fours. Truly a lovely experience and I already want to go back!
