THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tea Tray in the Sky Restaurant Review

: Taking its name from the Dormouse’s song in Alice in Wonderland, this is a true teahouse offering some 80 varieties of tea, either served in individual pots on the premises, or in bulk quantities that can be taken home. Despite the surrealistic mural that greets you as you enter and the displays of English-made Alice pottery, this long, narrow room is pretty and soothing rather than fussy. The tea alone would be enough to keep us happy, but with well-composed salads, hearty soups and sandwiches made with top-shelf ingredients like tea-smoked salmon, this friendly spot makes a wonderful stop on a stretch of street loaded with similar individually-owned shops of all types. Good desserts too, like the spicy gingerbread.
