Tea at The Hershey Pantry

We had a fun getaway weekend recently, and our first stop on this adventure included Afternoon Tea at the Hershey Pantry in Hershey, PA.  Not your typical tea room, they also offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea.  No reservations needed, they serve daily (except Sunday) between 2:00 and 5:00 pm.  The place was a bustle with people coming and going, but we were in our own little world as we enjoyed this casual after school tea party. 
The colorful, funky, heavy tea pot is filled with hot water and a variety of tea bags are offered at the table.



The first course was a choice of two soups, shown here the pumpkin cheese bisque.  Angelica opted for the chicken noodle.  Both very tasty and filling.

The three tiered tray held a beautiful assortment of hearty tea time treats.  The top tier included a generous cranberry scone with an even more generous portion of sweet cream drizzled with a raspberry glaze.  Oh yum!

Chef's choice of hearty sandwiches included a grilled cheese, a hearty veggie wrap and a ham and cheese sandwich.  Very generous sandwiches, nice variety in color and flavors.

And dessert was an assortment of fall themed treats, an apple crumb pie, petite chocolate truffle cupcake, shoefly pie triangle, and a miniature pumpkin pie.  All very good!

We were happy to be able to visit this destination as part of our weekend getaway!

This sounds like my kind of weekend getaway! And now why I haven't I thought of adding candy corn to tiny pies like that???
