Podunck Tea House- Another Gem Discovered

Hidden amongst the rank and file of 5th St boutiquey joints, this wonderful gem quietly lurks. Podunk: An American Tea Room, is cozy quaint, yummy and just good fun. A cross between a South of France Salon du The and an English High Tea and scones house, this American interpretation of calming, healthy, leisure time is pretty ace. You can share a pot of tea and a themed meal, “ladies luncheon,” “Savory Brunch,” and “Sweet and Cheese,” are some of the options. The meals come on perfect little doily clad trays, and always represent more than one course, savory with sweet, including a choice of homemade cakes or cookies and fruit. Every different kind of tea is on offer, from organic lavender and mango chamomile to spicy authentic chais. Podunk reminds me of a gem I once frequented in Ales and the Arab Bath’s Tea Room in Sevilla, although it’s not quite Europe I will make a point to keep taking mini-Sunday -brunch-vacations to 231 E 5th St. Stop in and say hi to Elsbeth, the charming owner, who runs the place almost single-handedly.
