The food was delicious and the sweet concoctions tempted all that went. (According to Patsy G., the cheesecake was to die for!) Tearoom fare was assorted and pleasing to all cravings. Specialties included salads and soups. Bean soup with potatoeswas another house treat, which went over well. A wonderful appetizer preceded each meal chosen. A chilled, peach soup with a dollop of whipped cream was a welcome treat not previ- ously sampled by most. A very brief meeting followed the meal.
