Tea Time with Kids

Eloise Tea at the Plaza

During Thanksgiving break my older daughter and I had the chance to experience a rawther (as Eloise would say) special mommy and daughter date with a fancy Eloise Tea at The Plaza.

Held at the sophisticated Palm Court, we were thrilled to have posh seats as we awaited our special tea. My daughter was so excited that she was at Eloise's houses and really wanted to see her room. When our food arrived we were delighted to see three stacks of delicious food. The first level was sandwiches and savories with grilled cheese sandwiches, cucumber buttered bread, organic peanut butter and jelly and strawberry and cream cheese sandwiches. The next level was the scones with delicious fresh baked scones that was paired with double devonshire cream and preserves. Finally, we enjoyed delicious sweets with assorted cookies, cupcakes, chocolate dipped strawberries and pink pink jello.

This experience was made even more special by the profession, and genunely lovely staff who made us feel special. After our special tea, we went to the Eloise Shop at the Todd English Food Court where we entered into a world of pink and fancy. We love spending time here where we looked at clothes, books and another tea room. It was a special moment that we think about often, and can't wait to enjoy again one day.
