Anne Parkin (the owner) has informed us just yesterday (Sunday) that this tea room in the historic Farwell House in Tyngsborough MA will be closed permanently at the end of January as she is retiring. The space will be up for sale in the next few weeks. (Anybody with the knowhow want to keep this tea room up??)
Although there's Antiquiteas in Salem NH, I think it's a shame that the "Country Tea Room" concept is disappearing from this area of New England.
We'll miss Ms. Parkin, Victoria, Lori and the wonderful staff at EA's and will truly miss their great teas, breads (especially the scones!) and light lunches.
