THE LITERATURE OF LOVE

 

Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe and loved with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out,  just as they are.”

—Mulock

It was once said that love is like swallowing hot chocolate before it has cooled off. It takes you by surprise at first, but it’s sweet and keeps you warm for a long time. In February, as winter lingers, a classic pastime is often reading love stories by the fire with a fragrant cup of tea. Books about the affection of sweethearts, the devotion of best friends, the love toward humankind. Come be gently entertained for an afternoon as we read endearing excerpts from well known classics, leading all to happy thoughts, as we serve you lovingly prepared dishes, and cups filled with the very best of teas. Our tempting menu includes:

  • Cherry Almond Scones with Almond Ambrosia,
