Kandy Kitchen Girls' Tea-room Opens in the Advertiser, June 25, 1908: “Sunday evening the Kandy Kitchen girls at the Roycroft Inn opened their new tea-room and its leap into immediate popularity was something of a surprise to even those optimistic maidens; and has kept them literally on the jump ever since. The building is a small cottage situated in the rear of the Inn, and is reached by a flight of steps leading from the peristyle. The room is decorated and furnished in the manner of all things Roycroftie, and the dainties served are also “fit for the King.” There is tea in dainty little pots with cream, real cream – or with lemon. There is coffee, and there is lemonade – lemonade which is right. And there are wafers of thin bread and butter to go with these. And, if you are not a tea drinker, then there is ice-cream, with fresh fruit and cake. All of these served in the dainty tea-room; or out upon the balcony, with the stars overhead, and the vines rustling about you.”
In 2015 you can enjoy refreshment on the Inn veranda and hear the vines rustling around you as in days gone by.
