Special Teas has been around for years at the same location--a tribute to its appeal and steady quality. It specializes in teas and sandwiches. Don't expect to get in and out fast. This is a venue for a relaxed conversation with friends. Recommended!

Nice, cute, charming place for tea with the gals. All the accompaniments are available: cakes, salads, sandwiches. Way too expensive, though. Definitely not a place to frequent.
