Afternoon tea in chicago? ideas?

Any great afternoon tea places in Chicago? Good scones, real tea in pots, the whole thing. We tend to prefer small tea shops rather than over-rated hotel teas, but if a hotel's the best, we'll try it!
We're driving cross country and will be in Chicago Tuesday and Wed. Thanks!

  1. Strongly recommend afternoon tea at the Drake Hotel.

      1. I've mentioned this before, but Celtic Knot in Evanston does a lovely traditional tea on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It's north of the city, but not too far, depending on where you are staying. It calls itself a pub, but it's really a sweet little restaurant and the tea is excellent.
