The array of menu items includes Scandinavian pastries and cakes; waffles according to Mamsen’s recipe, served with either Norwegian goat cheese or jam; salmon gravlax and other open-faced sandwiches; and late-night split pea soup to warm the heart and soothe the soul.


Afternoon tea—that hallmark of English civility—is served in the Wintergarden. Freshly made finger sandwiches, richly textured scones and decadent desserts are presented on bountiful tiered carts, all from the kitchen of our masterful pastry chef.
