Anna Maria Stanhope, The Duchess of Bedford, is credited with the creation of afternoon tea to tide her over during the long gap between meals. It seems fitting that the city of Bedford, Virginia has an establishment creating delightful treats fit for a queen including biscotti, croissants, muffins, pastries, coffee cakes, breads, cheesecakes and even sheet cakes. They offer a special holiday bakery menu too.
The Duchess of Bedford Bakery & Cafe' offers breakfast, brunch, lunch and Afternoon Tea by reservation.
My daughter and I had a terrific lunch complete with homemade soup, salad, delicious sandwiches and a mini dessert muffin. The menu features Boar's Head meats and cheeses and lunch specials with quiche, homemade soups, sandwiches and subs. A pot of tea and cafe mocha and we were happy girls!
You don't have to go home empty handed; along with baked goods, Duchess of Bedford has a lovely assortment of crystal teapot charms, stationery, Willow Tree and other gifts. If you're out and about, on your way to the Peaks of Otter or one of the many wineries in Bedford County, take a detour and visit the Duchess of Bedford.
