A few of you may know that my sister Ellen, (Michelle’s mother) has been going through some trying times. She was scheduled for surgery last month and I invited Ellen and Michelle to join me for a special lunch to celebrate our lives. Since they both live in Hernando County, I asked Michelle to pick a spot close to their homes.
Michelle suggested the Magnolia Terrace Tea Room located at 6282 Commercial Way in Weeki Wachee. (That’s the plaza on US-19 just north of Cortez Blvd. that has the Winn-Dixie.)
This was my first time at this tea room. Michelle had been there before with a group of girlfriends for a Christmas party. They rented the whole place and had an appropriately festive event.
We arrived after the lunch rush so had the place almost entirely to ourselves. While they say on their website that “It’s Tea Time all day at The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room”, they just happened to have wine! So you know what we ordered!
Hey this was a celebration of life!
The sandwiches can be ordered on different types of bread or as a salad.
Our server was pleasant and attentive, the food was excellent, and the setting lovely. The right place for our special lunch. I definitely recommend and will be returning–I might even try the tea next time!
The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room is open on Monday through Friday from 11 am to 4 pm, on Saturday from 12 pm to 4 pm and on Sundays for special events only. Call for reservations at 352-556-4819 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
