I rarely do restaurant or cafe reviews but this lovely little tearoom deserves a mention. Just before driving back home Sunday after our weekend at the coast we decided to head into Southport North Carolina a lovely little seaside town, with antique shops, places to eat and historic buildings. As we drove towards the center of town I spotted this tearoom and we had to stop. What a pleasant surprise as a Brit I love tearooms and visit many of them when I visit home. I have been to quite a few in America and they always fall short but this one felt like home. The Victoria sandwich a British cake I make often was spot on, it was even close to my Mum's its a delicate sponge cake with butter cream and jam in the center.
The service was great and delightful decor with cute tables cloths and china cups to drink out of. We opted for two high teas that came with a pot of tea and a collection of finger sandwiches and cakes. There was more than enough we even had some for our journey home.
It had an extensive tea list and sold loose leaf tea also.
