Vintage High Tea Party

Written By J Hepburn 29 Jan 2020

Join us for a Sunday afternoon vintage high tea party February 16 & 23 at The Biscuit Eater Cafe in Mahone Bay

Vintage High Tea Party
Did you know The Biscuit Eater Cafe is one of the oldest buildings in Mahone Bay and dates back to 1775? We were recently honoured with a heritage designation and plaque by the Town of Mahone Bay and are celebrating with vintage themed tea parties inspired by the eras of our building's past to put some fun into February.
 
Join us for a Sunday afternoon tea party, wear your best outfits and play at being fancy (hats and gloves are highly encouraged), pinky waving is entirely optional (don't worry, the only pretentious thing here is the swanky menus). This event is for all ages from 0-100+.
