There is a tea house down in Ozark that is very popular with women!  It’s almost impossible to get a table on Saturday at the Spring Creek Tea Room unless you get there just as they open.  Needless to say, Pam likes it, so by proxy, I enjoy it also.   And…they make some of the best cakes I’ve ever eaten!

Since it was kind of cool on Saturday morning, we decided to hang around the house until about 9:15 or so, then ride down to Ozark for an early lunch (is it brunch?) followed by cake!  We figured the 30+ mile round trip would afford us a pretty good sized piece of cake!

We made our way to Ozark over the newly re-opened Riverside Bridge, and made our way to the tea house.  This is what we found!


Aargh!  I guess we planned that one wrong!  Oh well…we had an alternative.  There is was another tea house just off the square, so we headed in that direction.  When we got there, wouldn’t you know it, it was gone!  Replaced by a coffee shop, but we saw that they had sandwiches on the menu so we went in and ordered.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well.  The two barista’s didn’t seem to have a clue.  They spent their time talking, and attempting to get orders straight for a bridal shower over in the corner.  We sat there for quite a while, then when it became apparent they hadn’t even thought about starting our order, we politely let them know we were moving on.

We found yet another coffee shop around the corner advertising sandwiches, so we made our third attempt at getting lunch!  We were successful this time.  Their sandwiches were really good, but we had to laugh at how bad their baked items were.

When it was all said and done, we still didn’t get our cake!

    No Cake = Fail! This warrants another try later on.

    Cakeless! Oh, cakeless! I feel your pain, man. Now I also feel cakeless. Must find cake.

    What a great way to spend the day! But you must find your cake and eat it, too!
