The Wisteria - A Tea Room experience

A couple of weeks ago I had an opportunity to meet up with my BFF. She was down in Naples for a little R&R, so we planned to meet in Fort Myers for lunch. And wow, what a lunch we had!

This is the Wisteria Tea Room and Cafe.

This neglected 1919 Florida bungalow, has been remodeled and converted into a very delightful Tea Room.

It's only been open since July, but they really know how to treat gals right.

Here, let me open the door for you.

We were the first guests to arrive, so we took a little photo tour.


We were seated in a nice quiet corner.

But before very long the Tea Room starting filling up. Fast!!!

We ordered the most delicious Tea

Creme Au Caramel - and OH MY was it ever a delicious Rooibos tea.

We decided to order the soup and salad, served with a Praline Scone, which was again very delicious. Everything is home made and you can tell it.

We finished it off with a Tiramisu Roobios tea ;-)

My friends and I had a wonderful time together. If you are ever in the Fort Myers area, be sure to stop in at The Wisteria Tea Room & Cafe. It's a Tea Room that is not to be missed.

Wonderful! That's exactly the type of place I love to go. We had one similar locally, and my daughters and I always went when they had a school vacation. It's no longer open, and I miss it.
