Traveling Down I-95 in Florida

You'll want to stop for tea in Stuart Florida!

It's an amazing tea room, not only for the decor but for the magnificent meal they call tea. 

My sister in law, Kim (right) took my niece, Shannon (left) and I to tea
while I was visiting last week.

Iced Raspberry tea and tea bread were offered as we perused the menu.

There were at least four choices for each course.

I heartily recommend the Lobster Bisque
It is the owners award winning recipe.

The salad is healthy with cut tomatoes under the spinach
but the dressing is not homemade, the only flaw we found with the meal.


I ordered the chicken pie with a puff pastry crust.  It was served so beautifully!  
Dessert was Kahlua Chocolate Cake




A pot of tea was also served with dessert
how could I have forgotten to get a photo of the scones?
It's quite a change from the usual tiny sandwiches and miniature cakes
that are usually served for the same price.


The rooms are all decorated with a Victorian theme.


An awesome fireplace in every room.


Fresh and silk flowers everywhere.


Every corner was filled with interesting memorabilia. 


It's just off the interstate I-95 and well worth the stop
You must call ahead for reservations of course as they only seat for tea twice a day.


They even have a cute white picket fence  along the property where a Geocache is hidden!  
Now that was a huge surprise and so fun to find!


Lady Ann's Victorian Tea Room
506 SW Camden Ave
Stuart, FL 
(772) 781-3339

I am not affiliated in any way with this place of business
 but I like to recommend some of my favorite stops
while traveling.  

The service was quick enough for a traveler, yet we lingered long after the tea was over and no one 
hurried us.  Delightful.

The shadows are a little "weak" this week, but that's how I like my tea!

I've never heard of Stuart, FL - but I love this tea house and its Victorian decor. Your "tea" lunch looks yummy. That cake! Oh - and I like the picket fence, too!

looks like a beautiful place (yay for white pickets!) and the meal looks scrumptious!
I love to visit these places when I see them. They are always decorated so magnificently and the food is always very good and plenty of it. We had two tea rooms locally but they closed. I must remember this for when I am out that way. Thanks for sharing.

OH my goodness I haven't been to tea in ages. It looks like such a wonderful time. Any place with a white picket fence is a must have for me.

We must plan to stop there on one of our forays to the north from our home in Broward County.
