Birthday Lunch

I would like to arrange a birthday lunch for my mother, who is turning 55, and some of her close friends. Can anyone recommend a nice place to bring them that wouldn't be too pretentious but would also have that 'lovely' quality that makes them feel special?

    the ladies in my family have had some wonderful gatherings here! i missed them but heard the raves. they do a traditional tea with tons of choices, lovely accompaniments and scones, plus a good light lunch menu.

      Fabulous idea. This is their afternoon tea, I believe they usually do it 2:30 or later, you'd have to check with them. Also note that they're closed on weekends throughout the summer. Scones & jam, loose tea in a pot, three-tiered tray of sandwiches (cuke, smoked salmon, chopped egg) and three-tiered tray of an assortment of shortbread and squares of all kinds. Delicious and most moms would love it. It's $20 per person, last time I checked.
