Bon Appetit Tea House, Mahwah, NJ

A family excursion this summer took us through NJ. Having read about the Bon Appetit Tea House in TeaTime Magazine, I knew the expressway we would be traveling would take us right past the Mahwah exit, so reservations were made for a Sunday Afternoon Tea. Located at 180 Franklin Turnpike in Mahwah, this establishment has a tea house on one side and a French bakery and cafe on the other. 
There was a certain elegance and European flair to the dining room with linens, lace, elaborate floral arrangements, comfy chairs, and glitzy chandeliers. 

With a range of different options from the Lady Anne tea, the Victorian Tea, the Queen Tea, and the Royal Tea, we selected the Royal Tea. Little warmers kept the pots of tea at just the right temperature.
A fresh salad with a warm savory was presented first.

The three tiered tray held an assortment of finger sandwiches, chicken salad, egg salad, turkey and cheese. Their signature scones were on the middle tier and the toppings were plated in petite mix and match vintage china. An array of desserts completed the top tier, macarons from their bakery, chocolate cake, and more chocolate sweets.

Tea, savories and sweets to nourish as we began our jaunt towards the final destination. It offered a lovely interlude as we traveled north for a short family visit with our NY sister, her husband, and their precious granddaughters.
