Four in the Afternoon, on Prince Street
The Viscount is delighted to welcome you to his deliciously divine tea shoppe!
Within one will find fine china from England and Canada and elsewhere, highly
collectable and some absolutely historical treasures as well. Naturally the
kettle is always on! Tasty little treats and cakes entice, but nothing entices
more that the Viscount regaling his captive audience with tales of the high seas
and ... oh, yes, he IS retired but nevertheless, he has lived more exciting times
than most of the Brethren. High tea is promptly at quarter past four, of course.
