When we’re out, my husband is quick to notice any Chinese, Thai, Indian or Barbeque restaurant.
Not really my cup of tea.
In fact, the businesses that catch my attention are antique malls, thrift stores, bookshops and tea rooms.
So, I was delighted when I spotted a new one: Beatitudes, one block off Main in downtown Grapevine, Texas.
A few days later I was reading the November/December issue of Tea in Texas, a free magazine available in many tea rooms across the state, and saw this article about Beatitudes.
So the next time my friend, Mo, and I were out at lunch time, we decided to give it a try.
We chose the Victorian dining room because I was very tired that day and the chairs seemed a bit more comfortable.
Next time – and I do plan on several next times there – I’d like to have lunch in the Country dining room. Very cottagey. (Spell check is going crazy with that word, but it gets the point across.)
As you can see, the decor is lovely, the atmosphere is serene.
The food was quite good. Complimentary appetizers were small scones and flavored butter.
I ordered the veggie sandwich and it wasn’t at all what I expected, but it was absolutely delicious.
For dessert, I had coconut cream pie, which was warm and it was some of the best I’ve ever had.
The shop offers a variety of Faith based gifts and vintage china.
So, if you find yourself in Grapevine near lunchtime (or breakfast), please give this Christ-centered business a try.
Here is their website.
