Beyond My Garden Gate

On Saturday I met up with my sister and her husband and went out to Delphi, Indiana to a new tea room. The owner is Julia who has a lovely space on the courthouse square which she has named Beyond My Garden Gate and there is, indeed, a lovely black wrought iron gate inside that you pass by. They're right next to the Opera House which the town is trying to restore.

My sister and her husband picked a Sampler Plate but I was hungry so I had the Garden Lunch. It was a half a hot Black Forest Ham Sandwich on raisin bread, like a panini sandwich, with a salad of Spring Greens. There was also a bowl of Tomato Basil soup, very thick and tasty. I loved it! I got the half-sandwich plate so that I would have room for dessert which was a lemon curd cake. Oh...I nearly forgot - they gave us scones with lemon curd as we decided what to order and those were so good!

My choice of tea was Gunpowder-Spearmint which I got iced on request. My sister had the Moroccon Mint tea, also iced and I think it was just a little stronger than mine. Rich got the iced Chai tea. I had hoped for the Ginger-Blood Orange-Berry tea but it wasn't available that day.

If you have a chance to pass through Delphi, Indiana, I hope you make time to stop by there. Lots of paintings on the walls too by local artists.


  1. I love tea rooms, and this one sounds like a great place to visit!

  2. I think I have to travel to the US and head straightaway to Delphi, Indiana! What a great dish. Yummy.

  3. hmmmm sounds like a lovely tea.
