Afternoon Tea at Cotswold Cafe

The Visitor Center was once the green house on the Edsel/Eleanor Ford Estate. A section of the Cotswold Café is glass, perhaps as an acknowledgement of its former purpose.  Our table was in the glass area, and we were able to watch a beautiful Cardinal on the other side of the windows. Afternoon Tea was $25 per person.

~ Tea Forte Tea ~

Initially I chose black English Breakfast tea, and Lori chose Green Jasmine, but she didn't care for the Jasmine, so we switched.

~ Two-tiered server laden with savories and sweets. ~

Savories:  Cucumber Finger Sandwich; Mushroom Puff; Hummus and Avocado on Crostini; Cheese Biscuit; and Shrimp with pureed Sun-dried Tomatoes on Crostini.

Desserts:  Chocolate Cake; Lemon/White Chocolate Cookie; Mini Scone; and Blueberry Muffin.

It was nice to unexpectedly meet-up with another blogger who lives locally - Jill, from Teacups and Stitches.  She was there with two of her friends.

After tea, the shuttle took us back to South Cottage to view the Ford family wedding gowns, which I will blog about tomorrow.
