The Oak and Berries Tea Room -- which is open by reservation only at the Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys -- is run by tea mistress extraordinaire Roxanne Mays, who used to run the Oak & Berries at the Holiday Chalet Inn on East Colfax Avenue. She eventually turned in her tea bags for other ventures, though not for long: A loyal customer asked her to host a private tea in the museum, which she did, and continues to do to this day. And Mays, who learned her craft at the Brown Palace, really turns it on for kids, plying them with a sunny and wise personality, pinkie shakes and curtsies, and a dainty spread of excellent finger sandwiches, mini-scones with Devonshire cream and jam, and pastries and cakes from Andre's or Devil's Food, all served on flowered china in the museum's Fairy Room. Little or big, girls uniformly love it, and when they're done sipping and flexing their pinkies, there's still a whole fascinating museum out there to explore.
