A Day at Sally Lunn's Tea Room and Shoppe!
Last Friday, My mom and me went to visit are dear friends at Sally Lunn's Tea Room and Shoppe in Chester, NJ. The Owners are from Sussex Region of England and have lived here in the states for about 20 years, they are my extended family from the workers to the owners, love them all, this is the place I spend a lot of time at, for the past 15 years.

They specialize in the most amazing scones and homemade clotted cream, flavors include: Cherry Almond (my fave), Blueberry, Strawberry, Raisin, Chocolate Chip, Egg Nog, Pumpkin, Lemon Lavender, and Plain to name a few.

Here is a picture of the amazing chef Helen and Sally Lunns Nancy, whose part of the fab staff.
Here is part of the scrumptious pastry display, where you will find anything from White Chocolate Rose Petal Cake to Lemon Lavender Cake, English Triffle, Mum's Bread Pudding, Jumbo Cupcakes, Toffee Chocolate Torte and an array of Cobblers,and much, much more, Notice where I choose to sit when I'm having a sweet tooth, LOL!

Here is the other side of the pastry section, look at those cakes in this glass display.

Not only does Sally Lunn's provide gourmet foods, sweets, treats and tea, they also house hundreds of Tea Time Novelties and Vintage Treasures, International Candies/Foods from Australia to South Africa, Turkey, France and England.

Its at this table where I gain much inspiration, many of doodles, notes and dreamy inspiration have been drawn on this table, over a pot of Indian Mocha Chai or Vienna Ball Tea, Its my fave spot in the whole room, because its tucked away from the rest of the store, in a cozy nook, and elevated like a throne fit for a Queen.

Everyone in Sally Lunns, including the owners are so very sweet and loving, plus the whole place is filled with aspiring talent, the owners sing, dance, draw and write, the stories they can tell from their travels to Tunisia, Turkey and Spain, Its always makes for so much inspiration and brings you back to another time, filled with fairytales and exciting exploration!
Sally Lunn's in UK ( no relation) but worth the visit as well, The Sally Lunn's UK is in the oldest House in Bath, beautiful!

Oh Lisa, they used to have one in Princeton, New Jersey. My best friend Judy, who lives in Hopewell took me there when we stopped over in Lawrenceville to sell our town home before relocating here. I am so glad that they are there. I will tell my friend Judy, she will be thrilled. Great photos of a lovely lovely place.
