My friend Angel introduced me to the concept of 'afternoon tea' so when I found out that Paris in a Cup located in Old Towne Orange offers a Lunch and tea fare in their Grand Salon, I had to experience it! Angel, her daughter Olivia, sister Ling, and our friend Tiffany headed over to Paris in a Cup for a bit of grandeur, romance; a little piece of 'Paris'. Along with a lunch menu item, we all shared an 'Afternoon Tea Fare' so we could each get to taste the pastries and small bites (this is usually a 1 person portion). The extensive tea menu categorized by types of teas got my senses going, so many to try! And if you are not taking a fancy to the tea that you selected, the server is more than happy to swap it out. I was literally transported to another time, the ornate decor and fixtures, pretty table setting and lush seating was giving way to a 'Marie Antoinette' moment as I sipped my tea and munched on delectable delights. Walk-ins are welcome, but to ensure a table (especially on weekends), be sure to book a reservation! Paris in a Cup also offers a vast selection of small gifts, market items, and a French staple; macarons in their boutique & market!
