Afternoon tea in Wisconsin

Samama Sep 5, 2000 01:04 PM

Does anyone know of a place that serves nice little sandwiches etc. in Wisconsin? We're going to be in southern Wisconsin (Lake Geneva area) next week and I've been craving that sort of thing. I guess there's a train museum in East Troy that is doing an afternoon tea on one of their trains but unfortunately they're all booked up. I'm willing to make a drive to other areas of the state if necessary. Know how it is when you're craving something? Thanks!

    It's not my thing but there is a tea shop in downtown Milwaukee that serves afternoon tea. It's called Watts Tea Shop at 761 n. Jefferson St (414-291-5120). There's a ritzy china shop on the ground floor and it gets decent writeups in the local press. The owner, George Watts, ran for mayor last year and was soundly defeated (FWIW).There's an Ed Debovic's wild and crazy diner a block away if you want to go from the sublime to the ridiculous. If you go, let us know what you think.

      Thanks for the information. I have also discovered there's a tearoom in Waukesha (which I believe is west of Milwaukee) called Bits of Britain. Could you please tell me what FWIW means? I'm not familiar with that abbreviation.

          for other abbreviations, see the "Message Board Abbreviations" thread on the Site Talk board
