Tea and Niceties was an interesting stop for refreshments on our afternoon visit to the mountain.

I ordered the gluten free flour less chocolate cake. Very tasty and was not that sweet. high tea is offered here. The cakes are made fresh every day. When you walk in you order and sit down. Everything is served on fine China dishes. They also serve breakfast,burgers, salad and high tea which is the specialty.
