The best way to describe Brennan's Bowery Bar & Restaurant is 'Fun'. The place is always crowded with people either enjoying a meal of chicken wings and fries or just hanging at the bar. This place has always been a local favorite and attracts a lot of locals and tourists alike. So, you can drop in for some cheap but good food or just enjoy watching people from the patio or the bar. The service most of the times is slow due to the large number of crowd which is compensated by the friendliness of the staff.

Despite our fast-paced world, the Victorian custom of high tea is growing in popularity. The menu normally consists of scones served with Devonshire cream-an extremely rich, thick cream spread-and lemon curd. Also served are tiny finger sandwiches and desserts; some tea houses also serve additional selections like mini quiche, salads, and soups. Naturally tea is served, with often a dozen or more types of teas to choose from. Josephine's Victorian Tearoom is located in a Victorian farmhouse next to the historic Hull House in Lancaster. High tea is served on Saturday and two weekdays each month by reservations only. A simple tea and luncheon is served each Friday on a walk-in basis. - Christine A. Smyczynski

Myra Vining calls her Seven Owls Tearoom a "big girl playhouse". Located in an 1850s Victorian-era home, it's quite a whimsical place. Vining offers children as well as grown-ups a selection of hats, tiaras, and other items on hand for dress-up. She finds that while high tea lends itself to women in the prime of their lives, younger people, both male and female, also enjoy coming for tea. Seven Owls serves a very traditional high tea, compete with finger sandwiches, scones, and Devonshire cream. They also offer customers a selection of bag, as well as loose tea, since a lot of people aren't familiar with loose teas. - Christine A. Smyczynski
