High tea evolved from the custom of Victorian-era ladies taking a
mid-afternoon respite, to an elegant and formal excuse to showcase
one's finery while entertaining friends.
Today's high tea features dainty tea sandwiches, delicious sweets,
scones, and specialty teas. It is an opportunity to pull out the dainty china teacups and pull on grandma's fine gloves. It's a time to slow down and focus on one's family and friends.
Everything is handmade in our kitchens and includes specialty teas, three gourmet finger sandwiches, two desserts, buttermilk scone with clotted cream and fresh fruit. For children's tea we serve adorable shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with pretzels and cheese in place of the finger sandwiches.
In this day of instant everything, the Kimmell House Inn is proud to
offer a special high tea experience in an elegant atmosphere.
It is designed to calm the mind and foster relationships.
Victorian High Tea accompanied by the warm hospitality of your hosts
is a hallmark at the Kimmell House Inn.
