Austen in Detroit

The Purple Door Tea Room is located inconspicuously atop the Beigas Gallery at 35 Grand River East behind the YMCA. The overstuffed, upholstered chairs, with dark traditional furniture, china, and explosion of floral will please any Victorian romantic. English tea is served Tuesday through Sunday 12-5 for $25.00 a head. Advanced reservations are required (313-961-0634). The sparkle and purple of the holiday season are whimsically magical.

    Ohmigosh! What perfect timing. My boyfriend and I saw an ad in the Metro Times and were going to head to a place like this in Plymouth, but you’ve saved us from driving a bajillion extra miles!

    So glad to be of service. I do hope you like it. It is quite a hidden gem.
