Stillwater Tea House is located at the corner of Prentis St. and N. Main Street in downtown Suffolk. This family run business set in an 1859 Victorian decorated home is the perfect setting for a tea house. The owner, Amy Ford and her staff were welcoming and attentive during our tea and with current COVID19 restrictions were mindful of social distancing, wore their masks and served food individually instead of on shared stands.
The house is beautifully decorated with Victorian furnishing and offers three different areas of seating. When we arrived, Amy encouraged our group to explore the house and pick our own seat. There are three seating areas: the Green Room, the Dining Room and the Pink Parlor. We chose the Pink Parlor with a comfortable couch and chair for our group.
Food selections included a cucumber with vegetable cream cheese sandwich and an open faced pesto, tomato and cheese sandwich. Both were fresh and delicious! The sweet treats stole the show, with a rich chocolate cake and bread pudding with apples and caramel bourbon sauce. I'm not a fan of bread pudding however would go back to have this again on a future visit. It was warm, gooey and had just he right amount of fresh whipped cream to go with it!
Until next time,
