Teddy Bear Tea Party

Start a New Holiday Tradition at our Philadelphia Tea Room

Start a family holiday tradition in the Mary Cassatt Tea Room at The Rittenhouse and join us for our annual Teddy Bear Tea, a special tea service for families exclusively offered during the holidays! We feature a dedicated kids menu for the occasion including hot chocolate, classic sandwiches and mini cupcakes, while parents enjoy our usual selections of tea, scones, savory sandwiches and petit desserts plus complimentary sparkling wine.

In addition to the mini cupcakes, children will also receive gingerbread bears with icing and candy provided to decorate! To really get them in the spirit, they will each get a chef hat and apron while they work on their gingerbread bear masterpiece, and to top it all off - a teddy bear toy, Ritty, to take home!
