Southern Tea Shop No. 2

47 East Oak Street

A quiet and charming tea room in a brownstone front, where prices are very reasonable and the colored waitresses are polite and attentive.  Such specialties of the Southland as Southern fried chicken, date torte, and hot Southern biscuits are popular items on the menu.  The table d’hote luncheon is 50 cents and the dinner is 75 cents.  This is No. 2 of the tea shop chain established by Miss Annie Sara Bock, a well-known Chicago restaurateur.  Delaware 0817.

Note: We ran Southern Tea Shop No. 1 on Tuesday. Both shops were just called “Southern Tea Shop” in the book.
