Tea Rooms/formal afternoon tea?

twodales | Sep 23, 2004 11:49 AM

I was planning on taking my friend to Hydrangea in Wilmette for Afternoon Tea but alas (boo hoo) they have semi-retired and have closed the shop. They are only doing special events now.

Is there any other place within an hour of Chicago that does a nice tea? Long Grove? Geneva? North Shore? Riverside? Oak Brook?

I know that the major hotels do it downtown but they don't start until 2 and we have school kids to tend to.

Thanks for any help.
