Seattle Weekly's Description
The tables in this tearoom are set with ornate castaway thrift-store china that comes together in orphaned patterns of soft pinks, blues, and gold edging. All the usual dainty suspects are available in Queen Mary's "Formal Afternoon Tea": crustless sandwiches of chicken, almond, and mustard-butter or pear, blue cheese, and walnut; crumpets and cranberry-orange scones served with jam and clotted cream; tiny cookies; and an miniature pumpkin cheesecake. The tea list is almost paralyzing, with a page each devoted to rooibos and flavored black teas alone, but the servers will help you choose, diagnosing with all the right questions and checking back to make sure you're pleased with your choice.
