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.
~ Linen napkins and tablecloth ~
~ 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.

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