Last Thursday my friend and I finally were able to get together to have my birthday lunch (thank you LuAnn!). We went to our favorite Celtic place in town-Granny McCarthy's Tea Room which also houses my favorite shop-Donegal Square. This is where I bought my Scottish mug I shared in a post a few weeks ago.
The first thing you see when you come up the stairs from the shop is the bakery/dessert case :)
These are THE best-very traditional in flavor and taste and not very sweet-my favorite kind of indulgence.
But we did have lunch and tea before splitting a little something:
Here's a collage of the tea area, the tea menu and the bar/pub:
Then we meandered around the shop. So much to see!
I was tempted to buy one of those pots I took a close up of-just because it makes me giggle. But I didn't. LuAnn loves the color pink and she adored the pink teapot with the piggies on it. But she didn't buy it. We both did however buy something else which I will share next time with Bleubeard and Elizabeth and friends for T Stands For Tuesday! I think you got your fill of things for this week:)
