Tea for Two at Greentree Tearoom


Mary and I enjoyed lunch tea at Greentree Tearoom today.
They are located in a historic home in downtown Lexington, KY.
The menu at Greentree changes monthly. 
A special Valentine's menu is being served during February.
We were greeted by Rob our favorite server.
The first course was a delicious French Onion Soup.
The second course was a warm Poppy Seed Scone served with Cherry Curd and Fayette Cream.
Fayette cream is named for Fayette County where Lexington is located.
It is a delicious mock Devonshire Cream.
The main course was Low Country Shrimp and Grits
Following the main course, the guests are invited to the buffet table for tea sandwiches and mini desserts.
It included:
 Corn Salsa in Masa Cups
