This is a very pleasant tearoom, we were able to get brunch at 11 a.m. Open sandwiches with fresh ingredients on fresh granary bread tastefully presented on wooden platters, very pleasant airy décor and helpful proprietress. Yes we shall come again! Cranbrook good town to visit with lots of independent shops, galleries, very good cookshop.
