Remembering the ‘old days' is a favourite pastime in which we all indulge. For many, those days are recreated so eloquently at Harriets cafe Tearooms, where the true quality of service from ‘yesteryear' is at the centre of everything
If its breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, Harriets has much to offer. All our dishes are made on the premises, many to family recipes, using UK sourced ingredients. Indulge in a fresh cooked breakfast or simply pop in for leaf tea and handmade cakes.
Waitresses wear period uniforms and serve you promptly in elegant surroundings. Both tearooms have regular live piano music to accompany you, in addition to welcoming children and having good disabled and pushchair access.
With an air of the Edwardian/Victorian age brought up to date with contemporary interpretations of classics, this is a lovely place to come for a treat or a regular stopping post. All the bread is baked locally and daily as are the pastries which are baked nearby in Tiptree, Essex. We had the fruit encrusted tarts and the special cream tea with Scones baked on the premises (Scones are baked daily). A choice of teas and coffees are available, the teas all loose leaf from Butterworths and also can be brought on the premises to take home. Harriets even has its own blend.
There is a disabled toilet on the ground floor but the chairs and tables are close together. When the tearoom is full, buggy and wheelchair access might require some moving of furniture to gain free access. However children are welcome and there is a children's menu. The children's menu has chicken gougons, battered fish and pasta w/ pesto. So not as healthy as it might be but the kitchen is happy to scale down all items on the menu and adapt to suit dietary needs. Gluten free options are very good including gluten free scones available on advance notice with a booking. Bread is gluten free if requested too.
