Cameo Rose Tea Room

Pinkies up, it’s a tea place: Cameo Rose Tea Room which sits in a classic TX town square specifically in Lancaster, where its nabes include a couplo antique stores & the shell of an old dept store which got decimated in the tornado of ’94. Chef Lisa Yearout, a Lancaster native, does blue-plate specials such as mealoaf w/ green beans & garlic mashed, and claims the cheeseburger is to die for. They use butter not margarine and everything’s from scratch. Since it’s a tea-room, the emphasis is on teas, not coffee (sigh), but they offer a nice house tea w/ blackberry, lemon & rose. They’re open for lunch & afternoon tea, but they stay open til 9 pm on Fridays.

I'll have to get out there and check out those antique shops. Since it is in the antique area, a good name would have been Second-Hand Rose.

Tokyo Rose? You know, that reminds me of a musical I saw over the summer. It was about some white people and some black people and they were on a boat (and they had a lot of problems).

If this place was near I-35 and NW Hwy, it could be called Gypsy Rose Lee.

red ennk, i thought it looked like cocoa too. but here is where i must confess my shameless poachery of that photo from the actual cameo rose website. THEY had that cup. THEY say they sell tea. so i can only point my finger at THEM. as for my poaching, i hoped they'd be ok w/ it since i was writing an item about them.

Actually we have a HUGE selection of custom roast coffee and flavored coffees, by the cup or whole bean or ground to order by the half pound or pound (12.95 a lb). Our house blend is rich and chocolaty without a hint of scorched flavor or bitterness, and we serve it with real cream-not creamer or half and half..1.45 a mug, free refills.
Our coffees are roasted locally and they are super fresh. The flavors that I have right now include Bourbon Pecan, Holiday Bliss, Maple Nut, Chocolate Irish Cream, Pumpkin Spice, and Pistachio almond fudge. We can do lattes if we are not packed,and we have a full range of Monin syrups. We have access to over 70 coffee flavors plus Fair Trade, organics, Kona, etc. by special order and all of our flavored coffees can be special ordered in decaf.
