Silver Spoon Tea House

Teatime at the Silver Spoon Tea House is elegant, with tea and treats served on china in historic house furnished with antiques, it’s not necessarily hoity-toity. Sylvia Erickson and daughter Lara McHenry welcome visitors dressed up in fancy garb — but jeans are fine, too. There are two ways to go about teatime: Come in the morning or afternoon and sit in the French-style patisserie room, where you can order pastries and choose from 28 tea options. Or make a reservation for a formal afternoon tea service, with a three-tiered platter of “little delectable bites,” as Erickson calls them — finger sandwiches, small cheesecakes, scones and more.
