Spend an afternoon at Gryphon Tea Room Savannah 24 Jun 2015, 9:00 am
When you think classic southern food, having high tea might not be the first thing that pops into your mind. From traditional home cooking to interesting takes on classic dishes, Savannah is bringing food to life in new and old ways. One thing we, here at the Presidents Quarters’ Inn, love is going to the Gryphon Tea Room Savannah! Here are just a few reasons we love the Tea Room.
Located at Bull and Charlton in the ornate 1926 Scottish Rite building, the Gryphon Tea Room Savannah offers an intimate experience in an elegant atmosphere. The architecture of the building with its carved mahogany bookcases and original stained glass panels will take your breath away. Sip on a cup of tea with a delicious scone while you enjoy a front row seat to the iconic Bull Street. Sit back and relax while enjoying a cup of tea or your afternoon cup of joe!
The Tea Room is the premier café of the Savannah College of Art and Design. The beautiful café, located in Savannah’s Madison Square, offers a timeless experience, which begins the moment you enter the Tea Room. The cafés menu features traditional favorites made with fresh, seasonal ingredients from local sources. Whether you are looking for a light lunch or Sunday brunch, the café offers both! Plus, the dessert at the Tea Room is unforgettable. A few of our favorites are the carrot cake, almond pound cake and, of course, the Affogato espresso, vanilla ice cream and shortbread cookie combination!
If coffee isn’t really your thing and a cup of tea doesn’t really suite your fancy, one drink that is a favorite among locals and visitors alike is the dirty chai latte. This slightly spicy drink combines a classic India Tea with a shot of espresso and milk to create a drink that will make your taste buds explode. If it is warm out, the drink is just as good or maybe even better iced! Enjoy at the café or on the go! Make sure to grab a sweet treat on your way out!
