FANTASIC FOOD, AMAZING AMBIANCE – My friend and I are foodies. We always go out of our way and travel far to dining destinations such as Lavender n Lace. And WOW, what an experience. We had the opportunity to speak with their CHEF, and he explained that ALL of their meals are prepared from FRESH INGREDIENTS ONLY. That's why our food was so delicious and good for us. My friend had the SPINACH CRIMINI SALAD with tomatoes, walnuts, mushrooms etc., and I had the CHICKEN CURRY, which was marinated in yogurt and lime. We also enjoyed FABULOUS DESSERTS, which we are told are all homemade. My friend had the FRENCH SILK PIE (to die for) and I had the ITALIAN ORANGE CREAM CAKE" What a taste bud delight. Our server explained that the cake was made in their very own BAKERY. We spent all afternoon. They also have a WONDERFUL GIFT SHOP full of great gifts and pick me ups, and another shop which is totally "RETRO" selling, HOMEMADE BAKING, BULK TEAS, and related GIFTS. We will recommend this tea house/restaurant to all our friends and relatives, and if you haven't gone yet you are missing out. It is very clear as to why this is one of the best eating experiences you will ever have. Lavender n Lace truly offers the whole package.
