Diablo Review

Lynn Appleton, the owner of the French bakery Patisserie Lafayette, has opened her own tea salon in a quaint, multiroom Victorian that has been home to teahouses before. We hope she's here to stay. High-quality Mariage Frères tea imported from Paris and super-fresh croissants are an auspicious beginning to a meal here. Delicate corn chowder flecked with bacon is just as pleasing. The chicken salad made with tarragon doesn¹t deliver the punch you¹d expect from the fresh herb, and the Devon cream and lemon curd both lack the tang of the best British renditions. Fortunately, the cream scones are tasty on their own. Service is entirely cordial but slow, so go when you have time to linger. Lunch Tues.­Sun.
