The Tea Room Tradition at St. Philip’s Church
This year, historic St. Philip's Church will hold its annual Tea Room April 23-27. Stop by 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. for a lowcountry lunch! We're offering our famous okra soup, chicken salad sandwiches, ham biscuits, shrimp salad, and more! Listen to the live music and finish your meal with tea or coffee and a delicious homemade dessert. You'll love our Huguenot Torte! (Here's an insider tip: pick up your dessert as soon as you get seated--before someone else takes the one you had your eye on!) On your way out, be sure to stop by our gift shop and browse the handmade crafts, artwork, homemade jams and jellies, and lots more.
The Tea Room (formerly The Tea Garden) is a St. Philip’s tradition that began in 1952 by the Women’s Auxiliary and was directed by Mrs. Carlton Davies (Hattie). In its first years, the Tea Room was held in the old “Shell Shop,” now known as the Tea Garden House. The Tea Room tradition was reintroduced in 2003. Lunch is served daily (weekdays only) for one week in the Spring and is served in St. Philip’s Parish House and Courtyard. Many volunteers--men, women, and youth--donate their time, talents, and treasures to this project. Proceeds from the Tea Room benefit St. Philip's foreign and home missions, St. Philip's choirs, and junior and senior high youth ministries.
