Afternoon Tea With Your Kids

afternoon tea at suzettes

Step into Suzette’s French Country Dining Room and enjoy a three-course tea with your daughter or son. White table linens, Fine China, water goblets and Christofle silverware set the mood for tea. Suzette’s offers a choice between an English Tea and French Tea. English Tea begins with tea sandwiches. French Tea begins with a choice of Crepes or Quiche with special choices for the children. The second course are freshly baked scones served with lemon curd and Devonshire cream. Course Three offers a choice of desserts, mini size for the children. All teas are loose-leaf teas blended specifically for Suzette’s with a nice assortment of black, green and herbal on their tea list. Hot Chocolate is also available served with plenty of whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Afternoon tea at Suzette’s is located in Historic Downtown Wheaton at 211 West Front Street and is by reservation only. Pricing: $31.50 adults; $15.50 children, 9 years and under. Call (630) 462-0898 or email [email protected]. You can also click here to visit their website.


Afternoon Tea with your Kids

A big thank you to Suzette’s Creperie for sponsoring this great list of places to enjoy the fun tradition of afternoon tea!

Afternoon tea is such a lovely experience to share with your children! It’s a special outing in a charming setting that naturally creates time to bond over flavorful treats. We are lucky to live in a city that has many elegant options to choose from, many of which hold teatimes geared specifically for children. Whether it’s a birthday, Mother’s Day or any old day, teatime is the perfect time to slow down in a calming environment and share quality moments with our little ones. Raise those pinkies in the air and check out our list for some of the best local tea spots in Chicagoland!
