It’s tea time every afternoon at the Brown Palace Hotel Tea Room, and anyone strolling through the hotel's lobby can catch a glimpse of lovely ladies and dapper gentlemen being served tea in fancy teacups and finger sandwiches on fancy plates. At the Brown Palace, in the heart of downtown Denver, afternoon tea time caters to the landed gentry and everyone else who scrubs up, dons their Sunday best and minds their manners. Reservations are recommended, especially during the ultra-busy holiday season, and the sips and nibbles comprise some truly fine fare, with black, green and white teas served with honey from the Brown Palace’s own rooftop hives; homemade scones and tea pastries served with preserves and Devonshire cream; and of course, the classiest of classy finger sandwiches.
