The small town of Ridgeway doesn't have a large population, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in charm and warmth. One of the big attractions to the town is Laura's Tea Room, where owner Carol Allen says the tea room experience is about more than having tea.

"Having tea at Laura's Tea Room is more than just great food, properly brewed tea and flavored iced tea. It is an experience of a lifetime," says Allen. She urges guests to slow down and really enjoy being together.
