From hidden speakeasies to over-the-top themed spaces, the Sunshine State is home to so many cool restaurants and bars. Some of them really stand out from the rest — and this cute little restaurant in central Florida is one of them.
Lavender and Lace Tearoom located in Lake Alfred is equal parts cutesy, whimsical, and delicious.
You can expect diner-style bites and cafe staples on their menu, including fried chicken, puffed pastries, soups, salads, desserts and more.
Of course, you can also get some seriously flavorful teas here — it is a tea house after all.
Slurp down the Snow Monkey Plum, opt for something cozier like Chai and Creamy Earl Gray, or go tropical with the Manchurian Mango, Tropical Breeze, and Po Lin Peach.
The outdoor terrace is the perfect spot for an afternoon tea in your cutest dress, surrounded by lush landscaping throughout the property's garden.
The exterior of the building is brushed in a light lavender paint that looks almost like a dollhouse, with lacey window dressings that can be easily attributed to its name.
Featuring plenty of plants, romantic moss-covered oak trees, and a canopy-covered dining area with white tables, even just the garden alone will really bring out the whimsey in you.
And all this beauty is before you even step foot in the doors.
Inside you'll find hues of lavender and pink, walls of fine china, twinkle lights, and dollhouse style decor that will make you feel like you fell down the rabbit hole and wound up in Wonderland, just like an unassuming Alice.
Not only is this beautiful little place a great spot to munch a meal and sip tea, they also have an antique shop on-site if you want to head home with something to remember your trip.
Whether you go it alone, make it a date, or take your mom and girl-friends, Lavender and Lace Tearoom is worth checking out at least once.
