Tea Time in St. Louis

I spent last weekend visiting my friend, Jennifer in St. Louis. We had a fun girls weekend that included, Sushi, movies, pedicures, shopping and tea! Jennifer took me to this cute little tearoom in her town, O'Fallon, MO.

I enjoyed my visit to Aggie's Closet and Tea Room which was surrounded by pretty gardens. There were several tables setup in the garden but it was too hot to enjoy the outdoor seating.
We chose to eat our lunch in one of the many tearooms inside of the house. One table over from us were two little girls enjoying tea with their grandmother. Aggie's Closet and Tea Room has a special "closet" where you can borrow hats, gloves and dress-up clothes to wear while enjoying your tea. The girls were all dressed for tea while nibbling on their flower-shaped tea sandwiches.
I chose a strawberry herbal tea to sip along with my lunch of spinach and artichoke quiche, and a garden greens salad.
 The menu isn't huge but the food is made fresh daily and was certainly delicious.
One of my favorite things about tea is that it's meant to be unhurried which gave Jennifer and I lots of time to talk and catch up.It was a lovely afternoon, and wonderful weekend spent with a dear friend.
