Garden Gate Tea Room

 My hubby and I went to Renninger's Antique Extravaganza this past weekend which is always one of my very favorite things to do with him.  It's always a the perfect date including the thrill of the hunt and the satisfaction of a wonderful lunch at the Garden Gate Tea Room in Mt. Dora, FL.  The day had warmed up beautifully by lunch time and so we enjoyed a wonderful sugar rimmed glass of  iced peach tea.  
 The tea house is as much a thrill for the eyes as the food is for the stomach.
 We got there a little before the crowd so it was even better as we could hear the soft music instead people chatter and making it even more perfect to have this room all to ourselves.
 I chose the salmon souffle and he chose rosemary chicken pot pie and I have to tell you I was not a dainty little lady as I wolfed this delicious meal down.  It was amazing.
Even the orchard was edible.
I have never really like the term " To Die For," often heard when one speaks of something really really good.  However this dessert was indeed that!   
So if you are close to Mt Dora, FL and have never eaten at the Garden Gate Tea Room I promise you will love it as much as we do.  What a great place to take your love for Valentine's Day but I am guessing you might just want to make that reservation right now.
Tell them Becky sent you!

It looks and sounds amazing! And I rarely eat out due to food sensativities and allergies but I think I could eat a salmon souffle or chicken pot pie!

Bom final de semana.
