|The Royal Treat Tea Room in Roseville, elegant and comfortable|
A tea room and bakery that are most suitably named: you will get the royal treatment at The Royal Treat Tea Room while partaking in just delicious sweets from Just Delicious Scones.
The Roseville tea room and bakery are housed under one roof on a stretch of Utica Road between Gratiot and Twelve Mile. The burgundy and white awning that spans the length of The Royal Treat Tea Room sets it apart from neighboring buildings and announces to patrons that there are great things inside.
My friend, Christine and I visited The Royal Treat Tea Room last week and found it to be a lovely venue to catch up while enjoying tea time fare.
|A variety of scones are served and, yes!, the are delicious|
The tea room and Just Delicious Scones are the creation of owner, Jennifer Stockwell-Colombo, who has been in the catering business for over twenty years. Inspired by the high-end pastries of Europe she enjoyed when she set out to travel the world at nineteen, she learned to recreate those specialty treats back home. By her mid-twenties, she had her own coffee shop and continued to grow her catering business.
|Sharing a cup with owner, Jennifer, as warm & welcoming as her tea|
Jennifer switched to wholesale baking a few years back, supplying retailers with her tasty desserts. Working from a small shop in Roseville, people would stop in to pick up their scones and chat. That lead to serving guests tea with their goodies and soon afterwards, searching for bigger digs to accommodate the growing number of visitors.
|Chicken salad, scones and a pot of tea for $15.00|
The Royal Treat Tea Room is furnished with Jennifer's antiques and collectibles in addition to furniture and china donated from guests. It's a charming, eclectic mix of tea cups and dining tables that make it an elegant, but comfortable, tea room.
|Tea cups and other furnishings come from Jennifer's collection and guests|
And, that's just the decor.
The scones come in a variety of flavors, many with a light icing on top, and are, well, just delicious! The lunch menu offers chicken salad and a selection of quiches. Your choice of either salad or quiche, a plate of scones and a pot of tea, costs only $15.00.
|Mini scones purchased at the bakery to enjoy at home|
The service is as warm and welcoming as the freshly brewed pots of tea. After the meal, take-home bags with pretty ribbons are supplied to wrap up any leftovers. There's also the bakery to stop at on the way out which provides the opportunity to stock up on more scrumptious treats. We purchased a half-dozen mini scones to take home.
|Tablecloths not only don dining tables, but hang as wall decor|
