An opportunity to discover culinary taste treats popular in the 1890's awaits the visitor to the Queen's Parlour Tearoom, located in the area of the Castle which was originally occupied by the greenhouse and later an open terrace, but now is a glass-enclosed room with a spectacular view, free from the whims of Colorado mountain weather changes.
When the Tearoom was in the planning stages, Victorian menus from regional hotels were studied and authentic recipes were collected. From this research of 1890's culinary arts, the Tea Room's original menus were created, and have been further developed over the years.
All Teas are by advance reservation only, with a credit card. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the Castle for a reduced price, when in conjunction with Tea.
