PHOENIX — The Spicery Tearoom in historic downtown Glendale reopened Tuesday with new owners after a brief closure.
The Spicery, which is located in a century-old home at 7141 N. 59th Ave., north of Glendale Avenue, is open Monday through Saturday.
The building, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, was built in 1895 and turned into a dining destination over 30 years ago.
The remodeled site offers visitors seating in the former dining room, library and bedroom, as well as the patio.
Bud and Lorraine Zomok, along with Sue Bernsten and Kenn Clark, purchased The Spicery from its previous owner of 10 years, Matt Borowski.
The Zomoks also own the nearby Memory Lane Trinkets and Treasures.
The new owners said many of the previous employees returned to the tearoom, including wait staff and chefs.
Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with reservations encouraged. Afternoon tea is served during business hours, with a two-day reservation requirement.
Fine teas are always available upon request, hot or iced.
Lunch and dessert menu favorites include chicken and tuna salads, ham and honey mustard sandwiches, cherry cheesecake and cream puffs.
In addition to its regular service hours, The Spicery hosts special events throughout the year, including art classes, education workshops and themed specialty tea servings on select Sundays.
