Tea and Scones at Victorian Rose

After a morning of serious shopping in downtown Rochester, MI where the Main Street is host to a wide variety of shops, we were all ready for a morning respite in the Victorian Rose restaurant and tea house. Some people 'shop 'til you drop', personally, I shop 'til an opportunity to visit a tea room presents itself.

Phyllis, Linda, and I settled into a corner of this cozy Victorian tea room. Considering we had a full buffet breakfast already, and an afternoon tea scheduled for later in the day, we opted for the cranberry orange scone served with orange marmalade butter and tea.

Very soon thereafter, the majority of our group ended up in the tea room for the exact same purpose, to rest and enjoy tea and scones before another wave of shopping.

This tea room is up for sale as the owners are calling it quits after 20+ years of service. Their holiday teas in December will mark the end of their tea room career. If anyone is interested in owning and operating a tea room, contact the owner!

Another wonderful post about our tea tour, Nancy. Thank you for suggesting we make a serendipitous stop at the Victorian Rose!

That scone and tea break sounds like my cup of tea. Shopping is fun, but teatime is the best.

This was a cute tea room. Hopefully someone will purchase it and keep things going.
