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.
