    Inspired by the great Victorian Era, the Royal Afternoon Tea will be offered from August 1 until November 30. Indulge in a three-tier medley of sweet and savory British classics, favorites, and delicacies created after the sovereign monarchs of England.

    Delicate tea-cup sandwiches include: a London Bridge Roll with crab and cress, a favorite delicacy shaped like the arch of the London Bridge; Coronation Chicken, which was created in 1953 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II; vintage cheddar cheese tart; and the age-old English tea sandwich with poached salmon, citrus cream cheese and dill.

    Delightful confections such as the Victorian sponge cake, a time-honored cake filled with butter cream and raspberry jam, named after Queen Victoria herself; vintage flora cookies inspired by charming Victorian design; all-time British-favorite, truffle chocolates filled with gin and orange; traditional lemon tart; classic English toffee cupcake; and popular Jammie Dodger—a British biscuit made from shortbread with flavored jam filling—create the charming Queen Victoria Afternoon Tea.
