Josephine’s Tea Room

Standard

You Are Invited To:

WHO:

Michelle

WHERE:

Godfrey, IL

WHEN:

Lunch

WHAT YOU GET:

Just the right portions of sandwiches, soups, and salads that are flavorful and not too fussy. Leave room for the home-made pies and cakes that they tease you with at the end of the meal. That mile high meringue will be calling your name.

I recommend the french silk pie or any of the cheesecakes.

 THE EXPERIENCE:

Females come one, come all…Mother/Daughter luncheons, Red Hat Ladies, Bridal/Baby Showers, etc.  Beautifully landscaped building that’s a little over decorated on the inside.  They just can’t seem to make this place big enough! Ladies are packed into each room so it can get a little noisy and cramped.  The buildings to either side are chuck full of middle-aged women boutique clothing, gifts, home decor, jewelry, and much, much more.  It does get extremely busy, so reservations are highly suggested.

Seafood Quiche, Lobster Bisque, Pasta  Salad and Side Salad

Michelle’s Ratings:

Quiche: Amazing! Their quiche is one of the daily specials, so they are not offered on the menu. This bad boy is full of lobster, shrimp, and crab. Talk about savory and the crust is nice and flaky. Three cheers once again for butter.

Lobster Bisque: Ambrosial! – This is the one thing I look forward to getting every visit. It’s a chowder style bisque and there is no lack of lobster chunks. Creamy and seasoned perfectly!

Pasta Salad: Amazing!  – So addicting. I don’t know what dressing they put on there, but boy it’s good.

Side Salad: Average – not much to say here.

Other Recommendations: Ham Special and the Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomato

 

 COME HUNGRY….STOP IN AT THE SHOPS FOR A BEDAZZLED JACKET, COSTUME JEWELRY, OR A KNICK KNACK.
