All the intricate, tiny details have been meticulously taken care of and it shows when you sit inside on the pretty furniture and look around. However, the large variety of teas on the menu is going to leave you confounded and wanting to order everything at once. Did we mention how Instagrammable this cafe is? Order one of their tiered food stands with delectable pastries, cakes, and scones and click away to glory!
