Chelseas Tea Room Lunch

On our last day in Asheville, while shopping and antiquing, 
we planned to have lunch at the Corner Kitchen in the Biltmore Village but they had an electrical problem and were closed.  As result, Chelseas and the Village Tea Room, just across the street where we had afternoon tea two days before,  was hopping with customers.  We enjoyed lunch in the tea room.  I ordered the Chelseas Sampler which included  the quiche of the day topped with chutney, seasonal fruit, tarragon chicken salad, dill pasta salad and mini muffins. 
We skipped the tempting desserts and later enjoyed sweets
 at the Woolworth Soda Fountain downtown.  
Asheville, NC is a great place for a "Girlfriend Getaway" 
or in our case, a "Tea Friends Gathering"

Oh yes, I love the sampler plate at Chelsea's. I am glad you had such a good experience in Asheville!

Loved seeing your plate of tea food. The dessert tray reminded me of dessert tray's I saw in tearooms in Paris.

When my friend Gayle and I visited Asheville several years ago, we asked a local to recommend a good place for lunch. We were directed to Chelsea's and were not disappointed. While we admired the decor, we had a lovely chicken salad plate and iced tea, followed by a "sinful" dessert. Before we left, we each bought a copy of Chelsea's cookbook as a souvenir. It contains recipes for many of the wonderful items served in the restaurant!
