Pinecone Cottage Tea House Polish Heritage Afternoon Tea

December 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Christmas in Poland retains much of its storybook fascination. For me, a second generation Pole, the most beloved and beautiful of all the holiday festivities is that of Christmas. It is a time of good will, love, harmony, forgiveness, and peace. Since we opened over 20 years ago, I have hosted a traditional Polish Christmas Eve Dinner here at the Tea House. The Wigilia Supper is the most seriously celebrated occasion and is intricately connected to family life. This holiday season I have created an Afternoon Tea Menu that celebrates some of the traditional recipes I love only served in a more contemporary way. I welcome you to embrace the flavors of my childhood with our Polish Heritage Afternoon Tea.
