Sundays, 2-5 p.m.
$19 per person; reservations required
Tea doesn't always refer to the drink made from the camellia sinensis plant. Sometimes it's a light meal. Get sophisticated in Westport every Sunday when the Teahouse & Coffeepot (4309 Jefferson, 816-756-2868) hosts English Afternoon Tea from 2 to 5 p.m. For $19 a person, this repast includes finger sandwiches, petit fours, scones and preserves, and a bottomless pot of any of 100 varieties of loose-leaf teas. An extra $6 buys the four-course version, with a large slice of cake or quiche. Vegan and gluten-free delicacies are available. It's the alternative to bloody marys and breakfast burritos. Call ahead for openings at the small space next door to Temple Slug. Reservations are required.— Berry Anderson Sundays, 2-5 p.m., 2010
