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....
