Tea shop stop

Is everyone having a short rest right now? New Year's is right around the corner, but I hope that everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends. Maybe your place is a little quiet now as everyone is leaving or maybe you still have some company. Which ever it may be why don't you sit back and enjoy some scenes from the Gryphon Tea Shop in Savannah. It is a pretty place to stop in and have a cup of tea (or coffee as hubby does), and they serve lunch too.

Just some of the variety of teas that they serve and sell.

Hubby wanted a slice of coconut cake, however, he did not realize how big the slice was so we shared.

They have a lot of ornate pieces here. On the ceiling it was a fabric that was stretched out. Really different looking. The orange chairs added a pop of color. Hmmm, they must have been to Europe as orange was a very popular color when we were there.

Look at this chandelier fixture! To me it looks very art deco, and you can catch a part of the stained glass on the ceiling.

Is this not gorgeous?! I just had to get a picture of it! It is much prettier in person, but I'm sure you get the idea!

I know that in different parts of the world there are so many tea shops, and I wish there were more here. I'm not a coffee drinker, so I am always on the look out for tea stops. I hope that you enjoyed this one! Makes you want to go and make a cuppa and settle down for some of that leftover dessert!!!

Hello Ulrike,
I like it so much, but not the orange chairs.
Wish you a happy and healthy New Year

What a wonderful little place to stop for tea. The orange chairs really stand out against the dark wood.

There used to be a wonderful little shop like that in Winnebago. Lots of different coffees, teas and some pretty good sandwiches. It was fun to look at their antiques and gifts after lunch. Sadly, they sold and now the shop is decorated with sports stuff.
