Roebling Tea Room, Actually a Tea Room

As I grow older and appreciate things like concert venues with seats and using a cold as an excuse to stay in on a Friday night, I find myself craving drinks beyond those that will get me black out drunk. Just kidding! But I understand that there are some folks out there who prefer a fine herb blend to a fine draft pour, and if so Roebling Tea Room is for you. And if not, Roebling Tea Room is also for you. Lucky you. And you! Truthfully, I didn’t actually think they would have tea at Roebling Tea Room. It seemed way more Williamsburg to ironically not serve the bar namesake.  As such, I was convinced to climb the stairs because of the $3 drafts, $3 well drinks, and $4 wine from 3-8PM daily; not the 75 (!!!) serious teas to choose from. Mexican Chocolate, Casablanca Melon, and Roebling Breakfast–their own take on its famous English forefather–are just a few of the $2.75 offerings. Brunch, lunch and dinner are served, including comfort classics like Mac and Cheese to more adventurous takes on chicken, served as breast, drumette and a meatball made from dark meat. For me, the most surprising aspect of the ‘Room is that it really does feel like a tea room. The light-colors, ornate couches and natural light make it feel airy and comfortable, not just a floor up from a loud Williamsburg intersection. The patio in back is a nice surprise, perfect for a late afternoon brew–whichever brew that means for you. Roebling Tea Room 143 Roebling St. (at Metropolitan) [Williamsburg] Photo Credit:
