“This is kind of my ministry,” said Daniels, “something I felt like the Lord told me to do, so I did it.”
The atmosphere is peaceful and quiet. Servers are dressed in formal attire and very hospitable, while the host greets customers with a welcoming smile.
Try Victoria’s Sensation to get a sampler of what the menu has to offer. The dish is $12.95 and includes their famous chicken salad, a slice of quiche, a cup of soup, the day’s selected muffin or bread and fruit salad. Each day a different soup, muffin and quiche is freshly prepared.
The chicken salad is a simple mixture of chicken, grapes, carrots, celery and mayo. The salad is refreshing and sweet, and can be eaten on bread to make a tasty sandwich. The cheeseburger soup sounds like a questionable combination, but Victoria’s Tea Room created a successfully delicious blend. This well-seasoned soup includes hamburger meat mixed in a creamy, cheesy broth. Take one bite of this distinctive soup and experience the flavors of a traditional favorite with an eclectic twist. The soup is served in a small tea cup with two crackers on the side. Next on the plate is the tomato bacon quiche. The quiche is a fluffy combination of eggs, cheeses, bacon and tomato. A traditional fruit salad makes an appearance on the plate with a succulent combination of fresh strawberries, grapes, kiwi and mango. Finish this delectable sampler with the carrot nut bread. Its a subtly sweet bread tasting of cinnamon with walnuts and carrots. The flavors work well together and it is not overwhelmingly sweet.
A trip to Victoria’s Tea Room is not complete without an order of bubble tea. The bubble tea is a chilled, fun treat tasting more like a dessert than actual tea. It is served in a glass and toped with whipped cream. Small “bubbles” pop in the mouth with every sip, and customers can choose from a variety of flavors including strawberry, peach and banana.
Victoria’s Tea Room offers many desserts like cupcakes and chocolate cake. The tea room even offers customers a free slice of lemon or chocolate bundt cake on their birthday. This dainty restaurant isn’t just for lunch; customers can also order wedding cakes and reserve private parties. Come in and try selections from the new breakfast menu as well.
Victoria’s Tea Room is a unique restaurant open to anyone ready to try exquisite food and have an upscale experience for a reasonable price.
