Afternoon Tea at The Front Porch, Hallam, PA

On a crisp fall Sunday, the 'girls' headed to The Front Porch in Hallam, PA for Afternoon Tea. An easy journey south, we laughed and chatted in the car until we arrived at our destination. Cheerfully greeted at the door, we were taken to our tables where a fresh salad with their signature poppyseed dressing was plated and waiting for us.

We selected the flavor for our first pot of tea, Snowflake. It is one we are familiar with and knew that we would all enjoy. As we savored our salad, we took a few photos around the tea room

The three tiered tray was laden with an abundance of fresh fruit on the top tier, assorted sandwiches and scones were on the middle tier, and the bottom tier featured a wide variety of sweets. The sandwiches included a spinach phyllo, a cucumber sandwich, a phyllo wrapped gorgonzola, and a little tart. The scones were cinnamon apple and sea salt caramel. The assortment of desserts were varied and sweet. We enjoyed the rich chocolate truffle the best.

The garden is spacious and always in bloom according to the season. This fun larger than life papier mache teapot graces the front lawn and leaves no doubt that you are at a tea room.

What a fun 'girl' outing. Everything looked delicious. The scones look like the flatter 'cookie type' instead of your high 'biscuit type' [which I'll have the pleasure of eating real soon]! It's fun to try them all.

I love that the three of you ventured out for a time together and were greeted by that large, very cute teapot. The tearoom and the food all sounds and looked just wonderful.
