Heath's Tea Room Restaurant

View Menu

Although this restaurant does the typical lunch and dinner meals, such as BLT, Turkey club, and a soup of the day, the real focus is tea. You can order a pot of tea, black tea, green tea, Oolong tea, white tea, herbal tea, Rooibus, and decaf tea. You could also order the afternoon tea package named Queen Catherine's Delight which is described as "a three-tier presentation featuring an assortment of six tea sandwiches, a freshly baked scone with preserves, a sampling of tea sweets and a two-cup pot of tea" for $19.95. The restaurant only has 11 tables available, so making a reservation is highly recommended.

Red Skiff

Red Skiff is located at 15 Mt. Pleasant St in Rockport, MA and is a very popular place to stop in for breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, expect pancakes, eggs, bacon, hash browns, French toast, and coffee to dominate the breakfast menu. For lunch, one could have clam chowder, a wicked good burger, chicken fingers, fries, coleslaw, and much more, but you get the picture - just good ole food made right and served without too much waiting around. I love this place.
