The Rose Garden Tea Room


Overlooking three acres of roses, the Rose Garden Tea Room provides an elegant and delicious tea experience. A pot of brewed tea and a basket of freshly baked scones are served at each table. From a central buffet, guests may choose from an array of savory finger sandwiches, imported and domestic cheeses, fresh fruit, chilled seasonal salads, and specialty petite desserts. Best of all, you can return to the buffet as often as you like. There is no dress code in the Tea Room: shorts and t-shirts or dresses and suits are equally acceptable, and children are welcome!
