Serenity Garden Tea House serves sandwiches, salads, quiche and, of course, tea. Most items are priced at $12. There’s also a wine list.
Did somebody call central casting and order up a tea house? Serenity Garden occupies a 1921 home, and the busy décor is exactly what you’d expect: lacy tablecloths, frilly chairs and dusty baseboards. There are a few tables outside, but it was so hot during our lunchtime visit that we sat inside.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
Everything was good. I liked the quiche special ($11.95), especially the sweet-potato-and-pear soup that accompanied the dish. The Waldorf salad ($12.50) also was excellent. The true star of the meal was the homemade rhubarb-and-strawberry pie, ($6.50) which was rich and unique.
REASON TO GO
Unique menu items, a relaxed atmosphere and Old Florida surroundings.
Friendly. We were seated quickly, and our servers were eager to please.
Modest. As the name implies, the dining room is quiet aside from diners’ conversations.
Yes and no. The calm vibe isn’t quite suited for loud youngsters, but Serenity Garden is fine for older kids.
