Another Version of the Princely Pear Luncheon for Tea Time Tuesday

I have taken the invitation of Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage and Inspirations to join all her friends for Tea Time Tuesday. I thought it fitting that I started with another version of my friend Judith at Lavender Cottage posting of our lunch at the Princely Pear.  

The Princely Pear is a lovely little restaurant in the quaint town of Cookstown not too far from where we live.  It has a restaurant, a gift store and a bed and breakfast. It is unfortunately up for sale. 

My lunch was grilled vegetables on a foccacia bun with potatoe and leek soup made right on the premises.  I was very impressed with the way it was served with the little doily underneath the plate.  So dainty.

My teacup had a yellow rose on it.
My Teapot matched the teacup.  How coordinated.
For dessert I had a delicious and rich pecan tart drizzled with caramel.   It was devine.  Went right to my already ample waist line.  It is so nice to meet friends for lunch, relax over a lovely cup of pink herbal tea and talk about blogging.  It's as good as it gets.   Thanks for inviting me.

Maybe you should buy the place and turn it into a blogger's cafe. Wouldn't that be a blast. WiFi internet connections and all these bloggers with their laptops all laughing and eating and drinking tea and coming up with great ideas to post about.

Yum! What a shame it is up for sale. Sometimes we drive that way up to Owen Sound. I shall have to look for it the next time.

I really enjoyed seeing your post as well as Judith's of the same experience. Sounds like you had a great time!

What a wonderful spot The Princely Pear must be as Judith also mentioned it in her post. How nice that you two are friends! I love how they matched up the teapot to the teacup, and your dessert looks yummy! I love little tartlets and yes, they do have a habit of going to one's waistline, don't they? Thanks so much for joining me for tea today. I've enjoyed my visit with you very much. Have a lovely evening. {Sorry I'm a bit late visiting. I had physio on my back this afternoon}
