The Tuscan Tearoom is my latest find in West Seattle. This totally girly-decorated cafe serves up a wide variety of teas, of course, but they also have a menu with special treats such as baked eggs (above) and crepes (below).
I tried the mushroom crepe which stuffed full and dripped with a cream sauce. Most entrees are also accompanied with potatoes and a tad of fruit. We stopped in for a light lunch and the meal was so large I actually didn’t need dinner!
But of course, there’s also the tea. I’m a bit of a tea-holic and ordered a lovely black Nepali tea. The pot that I received was way more than I could finish on my own over lunch but I was able to take the remainder in a to-go cup.
This is a lovely place to bring out of town guests or to have a special meal with girlfriends. Jon and I took his mom there and Jon was one of 2 guys in the whole place (and it was FULL). Not that guys won’t like it, but the interior definitely lends itself to women.
