North Carolina Hotel Style Afternoon Tea

The O. Henry Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina, pays homage to the esteemed and globally recognized short story writer, O. Henry aka William Sydney Porter, born in Greensboro. The hotel takes great pride in honoring this native son. Indulging in tea at the O. Henry’s Social Lobby has become a beloved tradition in Greensboro. This menu draws inspiration from the delightful afternoon tea experience at this elegant hotel, reflecting the warm hospitality and attentive service. Enjoy our charming North Carolina Influenced Hotel Style Afternoon Tea.
