We went to an afternoon tea at Villa Cornelia on September 7th and were extremely happy with it!! The Villa is the perfect place for a tea with its' beautiful architecture and furnishings. The tea menu was extensive and I selected the hot cinnamon spice-my husband had the earl grey and both were perfect! I will try another tea the next time we go.We each had our own teapot and the designs were different . The settings were beautiful too.We started with delicious scones with clotted cream and preserves. All homemade!!!!!The sweets and savories were delicious! We had egg salad sandwiches on homemade bread, quiche, pulled pork sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches as well as ham and cheese sandwiches.The sweets were amazing!! Chocolate dipped strawberries, mini cheesecakes, mini carrot cakes topped with butter cream icing and sugared pecans, brownies and specialty cookies in the shapes of flowers, teapots etc!!! Everything was homemade.The service was great. We were treated to a tour of the Villa and had our picture taken upstairs. We heard that the afternoon teas will be about once a month and can be booked for groups as well. The menu may be slightly different for different teas, but I'm sure the food and tea will be delicious every time and look forward to trying more things!! We will definitely be back and recommend it to everyone!
The food was amazing! We had soup, salad, a shared appetizer of shrimp, scallops and calamari (which we usually aren't fond of but this was wonderful). Ribs so tender that they fall off the bones. The beef tenderloin was Julia's suggestion when I couldn't decide and she was spot on! The music on the front porch for their welcome to summer patio event was an added bonus. The music inside was also very nice, not too loud and suited the ambience. The staff was attentive and friendly and we had a wonderful time. We like to try out different places for fine dining and this is defiantly a go back to place! The glass of port for our special evening was also a very nice close out to our meal. Thank you for making out 25th so special
