Relax in a Victorian ambiance when you visit Lavender n’ Lace Tearoom in Lake Alfred.
Lavender n’ Lace Tearoom
This restaurant and gift shop is tucked away on the outskirts of Lake Alfred, giving guests a breath of fresh air and sense of being away from it all. The walk to the tearoom is peaceful and surrounded by lush plant life and a lovely pond.
When you step through the front door, it is evident that the tea room’s name is a direct reflection of its décor; tablescapes contained no shortage of lavender, lace, and beautiful mismatched china. It wasn’t too frilly, just pretty.
For your first trip to Lavender n’ Lace, gather a group of girlfriends (young and old) and make it a girls lunch out. Dine along lovely walls of windows overlooking a citrus grove.
More than Soups and Salads
Menu options include soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, desserts and of course, hot or iced gourmet teas. The entrees are lavish and the desserts are decadent, which means you can’t go wrong at Lavender N Lace.
Try new things – opt for a unique tea and the daily special. We love their garlic tomato chicken teriyaki platter that comes with a small salad and slice of watermelon. Others favorites include Cottage Pie, Quiche of the Day, Crepe Cozumel, Glazed Asian Chicken Salad and the Ultimo Roast Beef Panini.
Save room for dessert!
If you have a sweet tooth, your server will return to your table with a large tray full of heavenly treats such as the mango cheesecake, peanut butter pie and hummingbird cake, and they don’t disappoint. We know this because we’ve tried them all.
Shopping at Lavender n’ Lace
You can walk off your meal with a stroll through the garden or the gift shop, which is located in a separate building beyond the outdoor patio. Of course it offers lavender, lace and tea items as the name suggests, but visitors will also find jewelry, scarves, candles and stationery.
