Only three days remain to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of the annual tea room at St. Philip's Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston.
From 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. through Friday, the tea room offers Lowcountry culinary treasures such as okra soup, spinach salad, curried chicken salad, a new cheddar ham biscuit and homemade desserts including Huguenot torte and coconut cake.
Diners have their choice of three seating areas both inside Parish Hall or outside in the lovely courtyard, and lunch is accompanied by the music of a concert pianist. Additionally, the church grounds are open for tours, and an expanded gift shop welcomes customers.
Reservations are suggested for large groups. Also, downtown delivery and takeout is available; call 722-7921 by 10:30 a.m. for delivery. The Parish Hall and courtyard is at Cumberland and Church streets.
St. Philip's has been operating a tea room since 1952. Proceeds benefit church missions, choirs and youth ministries. Call 722-7734.
