Afternoon Tea


In the grand tradition of the great estates of the 19th century, the team at The Sayre Mansion invites you for Afternoon Tea every Thursday from January to May!

Afternoon tea became a ritual among the upper crust of American society just after Robert Sayre moved into his home on Wyandotte Street in Bethlehem in the mid 1800s. Now you can enjoy a socially safe English Tea Time every week from 2 - 4 p.m. amid the elegant surroundings of the 1858 mansion. 

Guests may be seated in the formal dining room or elegant parlor. The menu boasts the delicate finger sandwiches, scones, and decadent desserts that are customary for afternoon tea. The Sayre Mansion in-house caterer, Karen Hunter, chose sandwich selections such as Salmon and Curried Egg Salad, Herbed Chicken and Cherry Salad, plus Date and Nut Cream Cheese. Guests may also delight in a variety of tea scones accompanied by Devonshire cream and preserves. The elegant dessert options feature Lemon and Almond Madeleines and miniature fruit tarts. Refreshment also include freshly brewed tea or unsweetened iced tea.

Reservations for afternoon tea may be made by calling 610-882-2011. The cost is $25 per person.
