We found this lovely tea room Random Tea Room and Curiosity Shop while strolling the Northern Liberties neighborhood. The small interior is intimate: eclectic vintage furnitures (for sale too!) with new age music. You feel like being tuck away at a quiet corner where no one would bother you. The pastry and tea wares are […]
