One of our favorite amenities that we offer our guests at the Old Caledonian B&B is afternoon tea in our very own Tea Room! It’s included in a night’s stay at the Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast, and served between 4-6 pm, which is also our check-in time.
Owner and Innkeeper Penny has enjoyed teatime and tea rooms her whole life. As a lover of all things Scottish and English, Penny wanted to integrate teatime into the Old Caledonian’s repertoire ever since the Old Caledonian’s opening over two years ago. Not only are the afternoon teas an homage to the Scottish tradition of the Village of Caledonia’s founding, it’s also a perfect refresher for an afternoon pick-me-up! And we’ve recently converted our former parlor into a Tea Room accommodating up to 28 people!
Owner and Innkeeper Jon, a professional chef for over two decades, prepares a variety of classic teatime fare for our afternoon teas; and serves them on tiered plates, as is traditional. Our teatimes always include our famous white chocolate and currant scones, and may include a selection of the following:
- Penny’s award-winning chocolate chip cookies
- Cucumber finger sandwiches
- Lemon curd
- Scottish-style shortbread
- Watercress sandwiches (with watercress gathered on our own farm)
- Lemon-poppyseed tea cakes
- Honey from our own hive
- Chewy ginger cookies
- And much more!
Penny sets the teatime table with vintage china handed down from her and Jon’s families over generations; and selects teas for our tea-list which include familiar flavors as well as more adventurous varieties from around the world! Jon and Penny have even traveled to tea expositions around the country to find the very best teas for our guests. Teatime is taken very seriously at the Old Caledonian B&B!
