Places to visit ~ The Chocolate Angel Tearoom



Last week I stumbled across the 
Chocolate Angel Tearoom
which made my day!



Love the light grey walls with the overall Shabby Chic/French theme of this small tea room.  The sideboard buffet has country scenes painted on each of its door panels.

Last week, I accidentally got turned around 
on the roads in Richardson heading towards
The University of Texas {again} after I picked up
our mail.
As I was driving down this road, I suddenly 
remembered that some new friends 
had mentioned that there were some
tearooms right around the area.
Pulling into a parking lot, I quickly googled 
"tearooms in Richardson" then finding that the 
Chocolate Angel popped up right away ~ 
it was literally a half-mile away
on the same road.
:)



Having not visited a tearoom in ages 
nor having given a tea in a while 
I jumped at the chance to "take tea" {yesterday's quick post w/ pics}.


Sorry this is so dark! Because it was shot "live" on my iPhone... my computer wouldn't let
me correct the lighting. 


The doorway I entered took me into the bakery portion
and a smaller tearoom set off to the side
{this is where I had tea}.
A larger main tearoom has its entry further to
the left in the little strip mall
taking reservations and seatings
at particular times.
One of the staff members said that 
afternoon tea had a seating 
that day at 3:30pm.
More of an actual high tea,
the afternoon seating is by reservations
and costs $22.00.
I decided to just have an early dinner
in the smaller bakery tearoom instead.

The main tea room ~ decorated in soft neutrals of grey, white, brown with a hint of black.  The style is Victorian with a  Nordic French feel.  Just lovely!

Sitting down, I perused the menu and decided on 
the Chocolate Angel Tea Sampler (around $10)
which included 
a cup of soup, three tea sandwiches
quiche, fruit and a small scone.
The waitress brought out a pot of hot water and 
a sample of Tazo teas in a tea box 
from which I chose my favorite:
English Breakfast.




While sipping my cup of tea,
I played with the vintage wedding photographs
under the table's protective glass cover
moving them just so then snapping a few photos.
Soft music played in the background
creating a delightful atmosphere.




At my table, four chairs were covered
in a lovely French toile de Jouy
and I just had to take a couple of photos!
;)


All in all, a lovely afternoon!
I would definitely recommend the
Chocolate Angel
for tea when you come to 
the Dallas-Ft. Worth
area for a visit.



Happy tea and blessings
to you!
Barb :)
