The Washington Irving Inn's Famous Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea at Washington Irving Inn

“Best Afternoon Tea in the entire Catskills.” –Trip Advisor

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;

if you are too heated, it will cool you;

if you are depressed, it will cheer you;

if you are excited, it will calm you.

Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea!

I am glad I was not born before tea.”

William Gladstone, British Time Minister
