Review: Dunbar House & Tea Room
Guest Review submitted by: Bunny
Rating: Five Gold Leaves. The best!
I stumbled onto this glorious English tea shoppe, nestled back on the road leading into Sandwich from Rt. 130, one rainy afternoon after leaving the Hoxie House. As a tourist and newly relocated resident of Mashpee, MA, from California, getting lost on Cape Cod has become a wonderful pastime.
The shoppe boasts an extensive collection of teas, served perfectly in the English style with the appropriate tea cozy and strainer. The menu has the traditional English lunches and high tea sandwiches with a very untraditional taste. The sandwiches are beautifully prepared and presented elegantly on fine china in a small, wooded, bi-level home. The Ploughman's lunch is especially delicious with Branston pickle and gorgeous cheese. There are daily specials such as spinach pie and perfectly prepared soups. The back yard has table service surrounding a tea kettle fountain and magnificent gardens. The service was warm, friendly, and professional.
There is a small gift shop to peruse while waiting for a table. I will be back many times and hope to see you there as well.
