The tearoom opened in 2004 and has since moved to its current location on a corner on Kansas Street in historic Frankfort, Illinois in an 1855 building that originally served as a hotel. It's such a pleasant rush of nostalgia just walking through the doors. I felt like I should have been wearing a Victorian dress and gloves. The place is lined with vintage knick-knacks and is also a gift shop.
There's a large selection of teas, available by the cup, mug or pot. I tend to like the fruity teas, so I selected a white mango sorbet tea that was so soothing and refreshing.
I started off with a cup of the soup of the day - Broccoli Cheddar, which was delicious.
Jen ordered an egg salad sandwich on pumpernickel.
I went for the five-cheese quiche. Loved it.
Just look at the floor tiles!
There are a number of fun teas with historical re-entactors. I'd love to get to one. I'm told they sell out very quickly!
