The Colonel's Lady Tea Room, Cafe and Gift Shop — Winchester, KY

The Colonel's Lady Tea Room, Cafe and Gift Shop is located on Main Street in Winchester, KY

GJ, the hubby, made reservations for us to have Afternoon Tea on Wednesday.
We each chose a pot of tea from the selection of nearly 30 teas and herbal infusions.   
English Breakfast for AJ, decaf Earl Grey for GJ, and Bai Mudan White Tea for me.
The first course was a delicious warm Apricot Brandy Scone served with mock Devonshire Cream.
The guys asked for strawberry preserves to go with their scones. 
They eat scones the English way with strawberry jam, and drink their tea with milk.   

The next course was an Orange Cranberry Salad served with homemade Orange Marmalade Dressing

The salad was followed by a cup of creamy, yummy homemade tomato bisque soup topped with croutons and lightly shredded cheese. 

The savories were served on a two tier server and included Sausage Phyllo Bites,
Mini Quiches, and Strawberry Cream Tea Sandwiches. 

We chose our dessert from the featured desserts of the day. 
GJ and I selected the Almond Joy Cheesecake.  AJ chose the Triple Chocolate Fantasy Cake.

Dawn Little, the owner of The Colonel's Lady,  is a delightful hostess and a talented  food artist.
Our family enjoyed our Afternoon Tea experience and we hope to return soon.
The Colonel's Lady includes a nice gift shop featuring items from jewelry and teapots to vintage teacups. 

Afternoon tea is served with  24 hour reservations.
A nice lunch menu is served daily.
In addition, there are different items featured each day as noted on the board.  

Winchester is conveniently located east of Lexington.  
I will tell my friends about The Colonel's Lady Tea Room, Cafe and Gift Shop.
