The Tea House is a must in Cook County

April 22, 2004

Sparks-- We've been testing the food at every stop on our Anniversary Tour. This week, we went to Sparks, right next door to Adel, where a lot of people say The Tea House is the best place for lunch.

"They feel right at home when they walk through the door. It's like going back in time. we have that little Southern, English style to it," said Lisa Edwards, Tea House Owner.

When you walk in this 100-year old house, it's to a more genteel time, when hats and gloves and fresh flowers and tea cups, were a few of a good Southern woman's favorite things.

Don't forget the food at The Tea House. Owner Lisa Edwards works too hard on it. "I always make sure everything tastes good before I put it out."

There's always a daily hot special, plus salads, sandwiches, and soup. And you don't even have to come in to get it. "They'll call, can you bring me a cup of soup, and I'll bring it to their house, and they're at the door with a runny nose. We make House calls," said Lisa.

And what would a tea house be without sweets? "You name it, we can do it." And they do it all, With that sweet old fashioned Southern hospitality, that keeps people coming back, for a few of their favorite things.

The Tea House also has a gift shop where you can buy, of course, tea among other things. And they do a lot of catering.
