It is so lovely to have grown up daughters who enjoy taking their mother to tea! I thoroughly enjoyed my recent visit to Maryland, and our Sunday Tea at the Royal Tea Room was one of the high points.
We selected three teas from the extensive menu, each one a delight. The foods were delicious and the crab bisque soup was a special treat to my midwestern palate! Traditional sandwich selections followed, and then a stunning array of desserts.
After tea, we wandered the upstairs gift shop and enjoyed the pretty items and tea for sale.
We had such a nice time, I look forward to visiting again when I have another opportunity to travel to the east!
I have attended a lovely bridal shower and have stopped in for afternoon tea several times and have always enjoyed my visits to the Ruby Pear.
A wide variety of teas are offered and are excellently prepared, as are the delicious goodies — from fat rascal cookies and scones to delightful tea sandwiches.
This is an adorable location for a bridal or baby shower, and the tea gifts and girlie-boutique items are abundant.
I would suggest reservations if possible, to avoid potential disappointment on a busy day.
