Our Favorite Food This Week: Afternoon Tea
Location: Garden View Tea Room – Grand Floridan Resort
Price: $35 + (can add champagne as well) (children 3-9 $23)
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. This week we take a stroll over to the Grand Floridian Resort and put up our feet with a cup of tea. The Garden View Tea room offers afternoon tea daily on the first floor of the Grand Floridian, windows offer views of the garden. There are a few different selections to choose from – some include cheese plates to start out with and others include champagne to finish with. We opted for “The Cheshire Tea” which is $50 per person and includes The Traditional Afternoon Tea Experience including a medley of finger sandwiches, traditional scone with accompaniments, and a choice of desert with a selection of fruits and imported cheeses. After choosing your tea, of which they have a large selection, each guest is given their own tea pot which is covered in comfortable cozy to keep it hot. Fruit and cheeses were brought out first, followed by the finger sandwiches and then the desert and scone. There was definitely enough food to fill you up and, yes, you can ask for a to go bag if you aren’t able to finish. Although a bit on the pricey side, we did enjoy the experience and food.
