Take time for tea on Carefree property. At the English Rose Tea Room it’s cups raised and pinkies out. Those partaking often dress for the occasion, and a trunk filled with vibrant and frilly hats are on site just in case someone forgets that important accessory.

A light hearted menu pairs perfectly with an abundant selection of loose leaf teas. Toasts ring out over a fancy table set with scones, finger sandwiches, quiches, clotted cream and preserves.

For over a decade Phoenix Magazine has declared the Carefree property “the best place for afternoon tea.” The inside decor is as quaint and cozy as an English sitting room. Outside on the patio there is a romantic air with plenty of shade from the warmth of the Arizona sunshine.
