Yay! The Great British Baking Show returns to TV land tonight!
In keeping with the British spirit, I decided to review one of my favourite local places in Santa Fe…The Teahouse!
I went here in winter, but the summery (and shady!) outdoor seating makes it even more fabulous!
Be prepared to spend a long time perusing the tea and beverage menu…they have an incredible amount of teas–all with intriguing, and sometimes comical, names. I was in tea heaven just on the selection alone. Plus, they have delectable tea latte blends that can be had hot or iced. With tea latte names like “Dublin Fog”, “Tokyo Fog”, and “Oxford Haze”, how can you resist? (My favourite is the “Smokey”, with lapsang souchong, milk, and vanilla.)
But, never fear, coffee lovers, they have a good variety of coffee drinks…everything from a classic espresso to specialty iced chicory coffees cold-brewed in the New Orleans (cream and sugar) or New England style (cream and maple syrup).
And, yes, they have beer, sake, and lots of other alcohol-filled libations.
For tea nibbles, they have scones (of course!) served with clotted cream and lemon curd, as well as other pastries (flavours depending on the day)–and they also have gluten-free pastry options.
Even better they have a full breakfast and lunch menu! Breakfast choices, sandwiches & paninis, tantalizing entree dishes, and scrumptious desserts!
I generally have the Irish grilled cheese (aged Irish cheddar and mustard, according to their menu) on gluten-free bread. It’s so frickin’ good.
The Teahouse is located on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, which is lined with art galleries and other shops. You can walk up Canyon Road and check out the art galleries and other shops along the way, or you can drive straight there and park in their lot, or use public pay-for-parking lot right next door.
Let me know what you think!
