Mc Farland House Tea and Garden


We saw the sign for the historic McFarland House on the drive into Niagara-on-the-Lake
with the "Tea Room Open" sign on the bottom. 
GJ whipped the vehicle in and asked about their tea room hours. 
But, wait!  Aren't we on the way to the Prince of Wales Hotel for noon tea? 
Yes, but we can have late tea here and skip dinner.
Sounds like great logic to this afternoon tea lovin' family!

I don't have a photo of the front of this historic Georgian manor home.
We entered through the pretty side garden and entrance.  

Mc Farland House was recently rennovated including the addition of
the historically inspired conservatory which is used for afternoon tea and private functions. 


AJ ordered the Canadian Cheese Plate. 
He ate all the cheese, but especially liked the Oka from Quebec
The sandwiches were a tomato with cream cheese, cucumber, tuna salad, and egg salad.
The breads on these sandwiches were really tasty!
The scones were a Buckingham Palace Scone and a Black Currant. 
The pastries were a Hello Dolly, a Lemon Square, Shortbread, and a Jasmine Vanilla cookie.
After tea we shopped for tea wares in the gift shop.

We departed for the short drive back to our hotel room in Niagara Falls
where we enjoyed the fantastic view of the Friday night fireworks. 

On Saturday we traveled to our next destination....

Your posts about Niagara on the Lake prompted me to get my photos from our trip out. I need to find my journal to know what year we went. [I didn't write it on the back of the photos. duh!!] We stopped at McFarland house because I bought some tea things there, and it seems like we had tea and scones too. I have photos of the house, but none of having tea there. Their new conservatory is beautiful! I'll have to persuade Jerry to go again. It's not that far from us.

This tea looks totally wonderful and now I am wishing for afternoon tea. How lovely! And that conservatory is beautiful.

It all looks simply delicious. esp the sandwiches(fellow bread lover here). I also like the clean lines of the conservatory/tearoom.
