Pinecone Cottage – An Afternoon Tea to Warm the Soul

January 29, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Whether it’s snow, wind, or grey skies, we’re all about to get cozy the best way we know how with our favorite comfort foods. The ultimate Afternoon Tea comfort food is homemade soup. Undeniably, nothing beats a steaming bowl of soup and a soothing cup of tea on the coldest days of the year.
Because of this, in January we host a Soup Tasting Tea weekend since everyone loves PCC Soups! This year we are changing the soup offering each week, quarts will be available for immediate carry out and second helpings will be encouraged!
