Don’t let the word “Tearoom” fool you. We serve a full lunch menu that can fill even the heartiest appetites! We strive to offer the tastiest dishes at Emerson Creek, each prepared using the freshest ingredients and most quality food available. Our classic Flower Pot Salad, served in an actual Emerson Creek flower pot, is the favorite of many. Those who frequent Emerson Creek Tearoom know when it comes to dessert, there are only three words:Peach Blackberry Cobbler. (Of course the other desserts are just as tasty too!) The menu changes weekly so there is always something new to try!

The Emerson Creek Cookbook

Emerson Creek is a uniquely heirloom variety, and so it is the intent of its’ owners to provide an opportunity to return to tradition, and share this beautiful segment of countryside with others.

It is with gratitude to extend our beautiful grounds, and now some of our wholesome, delectable recipes with you in our Emerson Creek Cookbook.
