The Peacock Inn, the only boutique hotel and fine dining restaurant in the heart of Princeton, is pleased to bring Afternoon Tea to the bustling university town.
The traditional tea service includes three elegant tiers of delectable savories and sweets, served with loose-leaf tea or French press coffee. Tea sandwiches include cranberry walnut chicken salad in a pretzel bun and roasted turkey with brie and honey mustard.
Freshly-baked scones are served with clotted cream and jam, of course. To sate sweet tooths, there are bite-size desserts including an orange almond cake, coconut caramel tart, and rich chocolate truffle. The selection of fragrant teas ranges from classic English Breakfast and Earl Grey to unique white and green blends with notes of chamomile, lavender, apple, lemon, and pear.
Afternoon Tea is $65 per person, offered daily between 2pm and 4pm by reservation only. The Afternoon Tea experience can be enhanced with a flight of champagne or sparkling wine and Ossetra caviar, for $95 per person.
The Peacock Inn’s popular fine dining restaurant features an extensive, well-curated wine list and sparkling champagne bar with a Zagat rating of 26 for food, ambiance and service, and received a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence three years in a row. The Peacock Inn Restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea.
