Sweet Marie’s Tea Cottage

25 West Main Street, North Kingstown, R.I.

Have you ever wanted to sit down for a proper afternoon tea? Sweet Marie’s Tea Cottage, located in historic Wickford Village, offers such an experience, complete with all the classic fixings you’d expect, from the perfect cuppa to scones with sweet cream. Pinkies up!

Upon stepping inside the cottage, the coziness is apparent, seen and felt in the intimacy of the space combined with the shabby-chic decor and sunlight dappling through the skylight above. Beautiful floral vintage teacups await on white tablecloths before a piping hot teapot is served, signifying the start of the afternoon tea experience.

Each afternoon tea follows the same cadence: a pot of tea to share, prix fixe fare served on a three-tiered tray and a second pot of tea if you so choose. Sweet and savory offerings include cucumber sandwiches (of course), chicken salad, prosciutto and fig toasts, macarons, cupcakes, truffles, both cranberry and cheddar chive scones and more. Each delicate morsel may seem tiny but combined are surprisingly filling. Worry not – you are welcome to take any leftovers home with you.

Afternoon tea at Sweet Marie’s is offered year-round and is the perfect outing for anyone looking to slow down and enjoy the simpler, sweeter things in life.
