Ridgeway is home to Laura’s Tea Room, a delightful stop on the town’s main street, Palmer. This small restaurant is so delightful, in fact, it is one of our two favorite places we have ever dined on a “SCIWAY on the Highway” road trip.
Originally the town mercantile, this historic building has been completely renovated but still utilizes the same cabinets, heart-pine floors, and library ladder. The main level features a gift shop and small dining area, while the upper level offers a full tea service in a formal (but still relaxed) setting.
The service at Laura’s Tea Room is impeccable, and the atmosphere provides a perfect spot to enjoy a few moments’ rest before heading to your next stop.
Upon reaching the upper floor of Laura’s Tea Room, patrons are asked to select a cup and saucer from this beautiful table display. Each cup is unique, adding a personal touch to the individual’s dining experience.
