ARIZONA, Aug. 6, 2020 /vWire/ — Alice in Wonderland fans and pastry lovers rejoice, the recently opened Drink Me! Tea Room in Tempe, Arizona is sure to delight your sweet tooth.

Melissa Harlan, Owner of Drink Me! Tea Room, got the idea for her concept restaurant during a trip to London with her family in 2019. The local tradition of afternoon tea was so delightful Harlan set out replicate it in her very own neighborhood back home.

“I am both Vegan and Gluten-Free, I know how challenging it can be to find that combination when eating out. It was imperative for my business to be plant-based. I want to provide a traditional and decadent experience for those of us who choose a plant-based lifestyle. I also want to provide something that allows omnivores to discover how fun and delicious plant-based cuisine can be.” said Harlan.

“Afternoon tea is something everyone can enjoy together and at Drink Me! Tea room, no one has to feel like they won’t get the full experience due to their dietary choices,” she concluded.
