CHILDREN'S MENU: No. By Mary Thurwachter Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WEST PALM BEACH In the mood for a leisurely lunch in a cottage as cute as grandma's? Consider The Little Tea House on South Dixie Highway in the middle of Antique Row. i The quaint dining rooms have hardwood floors, Oriental rugs, lace curtains, faux finishing on the walls, cloth table coverings and paper lace place mats. Lunch is served on floral china plates, and tea is poured from porcelain teapots. The pace is easy, relaxing. Unlike some restaurants, there's no need to shout to be heard here. There are several small rooms, one of which has a table for four, which would be perfect for a business meal. But, generally, the Tea Room is ideal for a leisurely lunch, a spot of tea and easy conversation with friends. And the food is good. I ordered a Black Forest ham sandwich ($6). It was enhanced by honey mustard and cucumbers, served on a baguette and was the perfect size for lunch. Another in our group ordered strawberry chicken salad ($7), which, she said, was very light. The portion served was just enough. The salad of greens was small but very tasty. She especially liked the raspberry dressing. The third diner chose a sampler plate ($9), which included the strawberry chicken salad, a mixed greens salad and a seafood salad. All received thumbs up. We loved the herbal iced tea, as well. The Tea House is a good place to spot from the road. It is behind Donvan & Gray Antiques, 3625 S. Dixie I lighway, on the west side of the road. There s a walkway next Qee the Company Premiere KRYIS CENTER to the antiques store leading to the yellow-and-white house and a tiny parking lot behind the store. If you go, be sure to have plenty of time there s no rush ing here and just one waitress and leave your credit cards at home.
