Food and drink
The museum's food service is known for both its quality and affordability. Specializing in refreshments and baked goods made from scratch and served overlooking heritage gardens, our food service is a unique addition to the site.
Tea on the Lawn and Boxed Lunches are available from May 17 to September 3 on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, from 10:30 am until 4 pm, rain or shine. Indoor tea service can be arranged for groups during the rest of the year. Reservations are recommended to avoid disappointment.
Tea on the Lawn
The afternoon tea service overlooking this National Historic Site's beautiful flower gardens is one of the museum's most popular features. Choose a scone and tea served with Devonshire cream and jam or order our 3-tier service with finger sandwiches, scones, and desserts ($13.00 + tax per person). Reservations are highly recommended. Please call the museum at 613-580-2088.
Because we use the freshest ingredients possible, it's best to contact the museum at 613-580-2088 for the daily menu.
If you're interested in refreshments but would prefer a more casual meal than the Tea on the Lawn service, the museum can prepare a small boxed lunch for you and your family to enjoy on the park grounds of the museum. For $6.50 per meal, you'll receive one of the sandwiches being prepared as part of the tea service that day, a dessert, a drink, and a piece of fruit. Please call ahead to avoid disappointment.
Bring Your Own
Visitors are also welcome to bring their own snacks or meals and picnic in the park. To preserve the artefacts in the museum, no eating or drinking is permitted in the exhibition spaces.
