If you’re looking to gather a group of friends, while at Sasquan, to celebrate ‘elevenses,’ afternoon tea, or ‘tea’ then plan to pack your Victorian finery or other fancy garb for a tea adventure while visiting Spokane.
Just a few locations serving an afternoon tea run the gamut of a tea shoppe, cozy tea cottage, and restored Victorian mansion that can provide a full high tea service. Since each of these venues have limited seating prior reservations are suggested.
Brambleberry Cottage, located two blocks East of Division Street on Pacific Avenue in downtown Spokane, has been serving tea and making memories for nearly 19 years. Their menu has a number of different levels of tea running from tea and light refreshments to High Tea that will keep you entertained for two hours. You can get more information about pricing on their website or by calling (509) 926-3293.
Roberts Mansion Inn and Events, located in the historic Browne’s Addition section of Spokane, is a restored mansion built in 1889 in the Victorian Queen Anne style.
