Afternoon tea with an 11 year old- NOT downtown

KateV | Dec 8, 2011 01:15 AM

I am giving my goddaughter a tea set for Christmas, and thought I'd pair it with a visit to a tea room... She's wanted to go since she saw it on Jon & Kate + 8 (ick, LOL).

So, I am looking for a child-friendly place with a real tea room atmosphere (not something like American Girl). We'd like tea served in a teapot, with pastries / savories / scones or such...

I've read a lot of recommendations on the boards for places downtown (Peninsula, Drake, and so on), but I do NOT want downtown... We need a place with nearby parking, due to a physical handicap. On-street parking is fine, as long as it's very close and likely to be available. :-) I'd also prefer the place not be too horribly expensive.

Anyone know of a place that fits? Any help would be great. :-)
