I can still remember the warm welcome we received at Silver Tips Tea Room a few months ago.
We were interviewing Anupa Mueller about her Tarrytown spot – and her related wholesale tea business – for our “Passion for Living” January issue.
It was a delightful chat that, of course, included some tea.
I happened to be passing by on a recent afternoon and noticed a sign proclaiming that Silver Tips is now serving breakfast. Mueller had talked about expanding her hours, so it was nice to see it coming about.
I got in touch and Mueller happily shared the news.
August hours will be from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, with weekday breakfast served from 9:30 to 11. (Saturday and Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
Among the breakfast-menu choices are Scone with Cream & Preserves, Strawberries with Yogurt & Cream, Croissant with Smoked Salmon on Cream Cheese, and Quiche, with selections including goat cheese with herbs and mushroom with Swiss.
Mueller wrote, “We also welcome breakfast meetings and can offer a continental breakfast (breakfast muffins/Danish, etc., coffee, tea, orange juice) and will be happy to offer a customized rate for any groups or businesses. Breakfast is the only time we serve coffee, which we obtain, of course, from Coffee Labs around the corner.”
She also shared another new offering that’s been added since we last spoke, which is the “Chocolate & Tea Pairing.”
As she explained, “We offer four specially selected chocolates, including a Sea Salt Caramel and a Tiramisu Truffle and pair them with four teas and this can be ordered on its own or as dessert. It is $15/person and best enjoyed by two people (but we’ve had people come in solo just to indulge). This is a regular item on the menu, no reservations required.”
And on these warm days, there’s one more thing Mueller wanted to share: “Our Strawberry Lemonade and Iced Teas are still $1 to go – the best deal in Tarrytown.”
I’m planning to visit Silver Tips, at 3 N. Broadway, for breakfast soon. How about you?
