They have Taylors of Harrogate tea!! Gotta go check them out!

By the way, they have a MySpace web page...

The Olde Yorkshire Tea Shoppe opened in February 2007, in downtown Schertz, Texas. We offer traditional English fare as well as antiques and collectables. We are the sole purveyor of Yorkshire Tea by Taylors of Harrogate in the area. We also carry a small selection of sweets, jams and sundry English groceries. The owner is Sue Audsley a recent transplant from Yorkshire, England. This Tea Shoppe has been a long-time dream that has come to fruition. If anyone is in the area please stop in for a "cuppa" and visit with Sue. Why is the Tea Shoppe located in Schertz, Texas? Well, Schertz is an up-and-coming small town close to San Antonio. It was recently voted by Money Magazine as one of the top 40 cities in the nation to live in, and # 1 in Texas. Our location, close to some military bases, has given us the opportunity to provide a "home away from home" to a variety of English, Scots, Irish and Welsh ex-pats. The Tea Shoppe is housed in an old building that was once a duplex built in the 1940s. There are three dining areas, the Dog Room, the Coach Room and the Plate Room. Each room has its own unique decor. There is a separate antique room but the antiques seem to spill into every room. Some of our menu items include bangers and mash; steak & ale pie, cottage pie, Scotch eggs, and, of course, scones with jam and clotted cream.
By the way, do you have an address for it? I can't find one on the above web site, just states they are in downtown Schertz...

Cheers! M2

Wondering if anyone has been there recently and if it is still good? My mom is coming for a visit in a few weeks and I'd love to take her.

We stopped there a while ago, probably over a year, and it's nice but I can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there.

Is your Mom coming from the UK? If so, I wouldn't bother with any of the British establishments in SA. They are nice, but nowhere close to the real thing!

However, there is no shortage of taquerías!

Cheers! M2

No my mom's coming from Colorado - but she is an anglophile and loves high tea. I did some more searching and it appears that maybe this place closed down? So if anyone has recommendations on open places to have a nice British high tea (or just the tea/sandwiches thing) in the area - I'd love them!

Sadly, my mom doesn't do Tex-Mex. She doesn't visit for the food - which is sad, since it's one of my favorite things about SA! LOL

There's another place called "British Sensations" in Bracken Village (in the countryside, a few miles northeast of 1604)
18771 Farm to Market 2252
San Antonio, TX 78266-2137
(210)-495-2748

Bracken Village SA (http://www.brackenvillagesa.com/index.php?shop=30 - broken link)

They have a small pantry with a few British groceries.. expensive though.
The servers are a bit rude.. I never met a rude person while living in England... funny that the only rude British people I've ever met live in the U.S.

It's the closest thing you can get to a British tea room in San Antonio, but it could do much better...

There's also the English Tea Shoppe at 6877 Bandera Road (681-2535). Their fish & chips weren't that great, but the tea (PG Tips) was pretty dang good!
