Have you been craving a 'nice cup o' tea' or a glass of ice cold raspberry tea? Or maybe you have been dreaming all summer long of a nice cup of cold strawberry soup. As of today, your dreams can come true!
Today marks the opening of Marla's Joy Teahouse at 512 State St., Concordia, Kansas. Many of us remember this address as the former home of the Huckleberry Tea House, but once you walk in the door you'll know you are in a whole new place. Delicate flowery china and the pastel linen and lace have been replaced with simple elegant linens adorned with bright white modern dishes.
If you choose to sit in the 'patio room' with its 'Tuscany' feel you can watch Chef G prepare your order through an opening into the kitchen. The trickling from the tall fountain at the entrance into the main dining room helps mute kitchen noise and adds that 'alfresco' feel.
Paninis, fruity chicken salad on croissant and BLT salad are very similar to the former Huckleberry fare. Feeling a bit more daring? Chef G has a few surprises in store with his "Special Creole Shrimp Hoagie" and sandwiches with his "Special Creole dressing'. Proprietress Marla has added a few of her own favorites including "Panther Pride Hot Roast Beef Hoagie" and "Bohemian Farm Girl Ham and Swiss Panini"
Open Tuesday thru Saturday - 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
