Little Hen - Afternoon Tea
I am in love. Little Hen, located in the River Oaks District, is my new favorite place. This spot has everything I need - champagne, tea, finger sandwiches, scones, flowers, excellent service, and class. If I could just move a mattress inside Little Hen, I would be happy living there.
Little Hen offers breakfast/brunch and afternoon tea. However, if you are there for breakfast - you can still order a full afternoon tea spread! Yes, that is true! Isn't that the best?
Afternoon Tea comes with chicken salad, egg salad, and tuna salad finger sandwiches, two lemon-blueberry scones, two macarons, and a chocolate truffle. The scones are served with delicious whole strawberry jam and clotted cream. These scones are soft on the inside with a crunch on top from baking and the sugar granules. I love the crunch. The food is delectable, and a perfect amount is served.
There is more! Little Hen has a signature cocktail that wows! The Champagne Candy Cloud starts with pink cotton candy in a coup glass. The server then pours champagne over the cotton candy, melting the confection into the bubbles. While I think I will stick to unadulterated champagne in the future, the drink was a fun treat. I expected it to be super sweet, and it really wasn't too sweet at all. It is an enjoyable beverage to share with a friend or help celebrate a fun day!
The service at Little Hen was fantastic! Our server was friendly, cheerful, and helpful. He set the tone for a wonderful experience. As a matter of fact, all the staff treated us with grace and warmth. I also love that their website says they favor a glamorous dress code. I mean, who isn't up for a little glamour?
I will definitely return to Little Hen and hope to return soon! Little Hen is definitely one of my TOP happy spots!
