In our tea room there are a number of choices for the visitor to enjoy including partaking of an Afternoon Cream Tea.  We offer formules for lunch and for afternoon tea and always have a tarte du jour and a gateau du jour on offer.  A typical afternoon tea might comprise of a selection of tasty sandwiches such as for example Camembert and apple, or blue cheese and walnut or smoked salmon and cream cheese with a hint of dill/aneth and a selection of our home baked patisserie – typical favourites are chocolate au fondant,

Another popular cake at Chez Teresa is the ubiquitous Queen Victoria Sandwich. and a pot of one of our Speciality teas such as Jasmine, Lemon and Ginger or our popular La Symphonie de Pastorale, a tea we mix ourselves comprising of a blend of green teas and violet flowers.  We also serve PG Tips and always have fresh milk and lemon to serve with our teas.

My passion is for baking and not a day goes past when I am not making a batch of fresh buttery scones, an apple crumble or tarte or a speciality bread.

The Boutique at Chez Teresa

Collecting all things vintage is another passion of ours at Chez Teresa.  We sell all things related to the art of drinking tea from ornate tea strainers to pretty jugs, cups and saucers, plates and tea pots.  We also stock a range of miscellaneous items from vintage and hand crafted jewellery and scarves to the odd vintage light and items of clothing.

A recent acquisition of ours was a beautiful old Parisian Mannequin  (not for sale..) which is now festooned with pretty scarves, hats and costume jewellery.

In addition we sell a selection of teas, home made jams, curds and marmalades.
