Feathernesters Tea Room, Richmond, VA

Tea Room #2 ~ during our 2011 summer vacation to the Outer Banks, discovered via TeaMap, a source we always check prior to traveling anywhere in an attempt to locate tea rooms within our travel destinations.  And what a special destination we found!  Feathernesters Tea Room in Richmond, VA offers Sunday Brunch, which fit our travel schedule perfectly.  When I emailed an inquiry regarding availability, the response we received was overwhelming.  We would be delighted to welcome you and your family to Feathernesters Tea Room.  We recognize your name and have been to The Rosemary House on several occasions.  We referred to your mother's book  (Growing Your Herb Business) frequently when we first opened.  Tony & Marc
How special is that!?  We felt as if our mom had sent us to visit them!  On Sundays, they serve a delicious Sunday Brunch.  We arrived promptly at 10 am, and had a chance to peek around the amazing gift shop before we feasted on a delicious Southern buffet which included made-to-order omelets, hash browns, garden casserole, ham, bacon, cheesy grits, biscuits & gravy, scones and blueberry muffins, and more!  Beautiful presentation, individual pots of tea, delicious and bountiful food, and a very special welcome made us feel quite at home on this Sunday morning.

Lovely displays, good food and good tea, complete with a fun gift shop made it difficult to leave Feathernesters, but we were headed to our beach house with a van full of excited kids, so off we went.

What a treat to have the owners remember your mom's book and have visited The Rosemary House. Sunday brunch would definitely be a fun thing to do at a tearoom. More tearooms should do this.
