Pinecone Cottage Tea House: Downers Grove, IL

We Chicago Foodie Sisters are major tea lovers and there are few things we love more than visiting a tea house and spending a couple girly hours, sipping and chatting and giggling and enjoying lovely little finger food on fancy dishes. Any chance we have to visit a tea room, we jump at the chance. 

I was so excited when Becky suggested we visit the Pinecone Cottage Tea House not far from her in Downers Grove earlier this year. My little niece, Ari, accompanied us and we had the best time. She is such a girly little princess who loves tea time as much as her Aunt Carrie. Since I'm a mom of five sons, I rally cherish our girl time together and we had such a wonderful afternoon. The tea was delicious. The food was delicious. The decor was charming. And the company was the best.
