Where would you go for a baby shower on a Saturday afternoon in the city?

We want good food and something with a femme atmosphere, not a sports bar. Most likely for a group of 10 -15. Anywhere in the city would be good. Some place with manageable parking would be great. Please include cross streets. We're also looking for a place we could get into in the next two weeks or so.

    We threw my sister a baby shower at Betelnut about two years ago, probably for twice as many people though. It worked out very well. They have a private room in the back of the restaurant and even let us bring in our own dessert.
    The food was good, not mind blowing, but good and festive.
    We looked into having it at a local Tea House as well, which would be nice for the size party you're describing.
    There's a lot across the street for added ease, and it's on Union St.

      Let's see. Don't know what your budget is, but ones us 30 somethings (and the little ones, if you have toys to entertain with you) here in the city love is Lovejoy's Tea Room. http://www.lovejoystearoom.com/.

      I can help more if you have other "specifics" you are looking for!

        I was thinking Lovejoy's as well but I don't think they will be able to be at one table (if that matters). But I sort of feel like the food has gone downhill since the move.

          I like Lovejoy's, but parking is very much a hassle.
