• A ROYAL EX­PE­RI­ENCE: Opened in 2002, the English Rose Tea Room in Care­free is thought­fully trimmed with nos­tal­gia-in­duc­ing dec­o­ra­tions, and the gift shop of­fers plenty of “royal tea” mem­o­ra­bilia. Re­serve a ta­ble for lunch or for the Duchess of Bed­ford’s For­mal Af­ter­noon Tea, which in­cludes a three­tiered as­sort­ment of tea sand­wiches, scones and pas­tries, and a small pot of your choice of tea (www.care­freetea.com). • TWO IN CATLIN COURT: This his­toric district in Glen­dale is home to two cozy tea­houses. Call ahead for a seat at The Spicery in Our 1895 Home for lunch or Af­ter­noon Tea, served at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm, M-Sa (www.1895spicery.com). Or re­serve a ta­ble for high tea at Kim­berly Ann’s Tea Room and Café, where four op­tions of food as­sort­ments are served at 11 am and 2 pm, M-Sa (www.kim­berlyannstea­room.webs.com).
