Tea room near New Hope/Lambertville
I'm meeting a client and her daughter mid-afternoon next Friday and was hoping to find a place for tea. Any recommendations in the area?
Rojo's is the nicest and very client appropriate....problem is, almost all these places (including Rojo's) are coffee houses, not tea houses.
I'm unfamiliar with any tea rooms in the area (the only place that lists itself as such is more of a place to get bulk tea).
There's a good Lebanese restaurant, which I know has authentic teas, however, it's a restaurant not a tea house. Mahraba is the name.
About 20 min away, in Hopewell, NJ, there's a place called 'Paint the Roses'. I've been by it many times but never gone in. I don't know any other tea rooms in the area.
FYI, one of the best tea rooms in New Jersey, Teaberry's, is in Flemington but that may be too far for you to drive.
Try Caffe Galleria. Not a tea house per se, but a family owned restaurant, in a nice old mansion.
The House of Coffee, in Peddler's Village (Lahaska, PA) is about six miles from Lambertville and has a nice selection of teas. Can get a bit crowded and there's no table service, so, if you're trying to impress a client, it may not be perfect, but if you just want to talk and sip tea and have a scone or other pastry, it's perfect.
