Come Join us for Victorian Afternoon Tea...

Call an old friend, a niece, or a sister and join us every Monday through Saturday. Three elegant courses are served on antique china and steaming hot imported tea is served in fancy silver and ceramic pots.

In the 19th century, having Afternoon Tea was a graceful event, governed by a complex set of rules and etiquette. At the Holly Hotel, Afternoon Tea begins at 1:00 PM, just as it did in Edwardian Times, to allow our guests the opportunity to experience the traditions and customs of an afternoon respite in an historical atmosphere.

The menu for each tea is different and a generalized format is listed below. Our pastry chef arrives early every morning to bake for tea and select starched white linens and fresh flowers for each table. Reservations always appreciated. $14.00 per person, Club Members, $11.20. The Holly Hotel voted "Michigan's Best Tea" by the Detroit News.
