Tea. An aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub (bush) native to East Asia. After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world. This according to Wikipedia.  Whateevveerr.  All I know is that there is nothing better than a hot cup of tea, or two, or three to get my morning, my afternoon and my evening started.  Laughs. And ice tea is served year-round in my home as well.  I also make a pretty mean currant scone which would make my British/Irish/Scot ancestors proud.  So it should be no surprise that I would pay homage to tea at Petit Lac Des Cygnes.

Several builds were considered before settling on the Pavilion de Boulogne by China & Goodies.  It’s not a massive structure; four rooms in all measuring 19 meters x 24 meters.  Land impact is on the heavy side, but the Pavilion textures and overall appearance are outstanding.

The vestibule is the first room you enter.  Its furnishings while ornate are kept to a minimum.  In the center of the room is a round table with a small portrait of Marie Antoinette, for which the Pavilion is named.  Lilacs scent the air.


Off to one side of the vestibule is the former boudoir now a private dining room for two.

Antoinette's - Private Dining1b

Returning to the vestibule, through the double doors you will find the oval Grand salon.  Here is the main tearoom furnished with white wrought iron furniture, afternoon tea, and all the trimmings.  The doors can be opened to catch the gentle breeze.


On the other side of the vestibule is a “raucheffoir,” or small warming kitchen where tea and all it entails is prepared.


Outside in the surrounding garden are tables, each set with a different tea set that is interactive.  Armillaries house an intan, birds chirp merrily, water trickles softly from the fountain while lights twinkle through the maple trees.  A lovely spot for friends to gather or maybe a romantic interlude for two?


Your ride can be found here.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥

Le Petit Cafe Cygne

Located in the Southwest of France, surrounded by the Pyrenees Mountains, stands Le Petit Cafe Cygne, an old French farmhouse renovated to house a coffee house, bakery, pub, bistro, and micro-winery.

It was supposed to be just a coffee house but morphed into what is now pictured.  What can I say?  I was inspired.

The bakery is outfitted with a variety of bread, pastries, and decadent desserts, along with a variety of coffees, tea, and hot chocolate.  There is even seating for child avatars.

My inspiration for the micro-winery is from a local one in my neck of the woods in 1st.

I pulled out everything I could find in my inventory to furnish the cafe. Even shopped for a few new items.  That last remark is an understatement.  Most of the build is interactive.  The outdoor dining and micro-winery have menus for a complete dining experience, and the pub tables do have a few games you can actually play along with drinks.

Le Petit Cafe Cygne is open Wednesday thru Sunday.  Stop by for an espresso and pastry, or maybe a mug of hot chocolate and a slice of cake is your desire.  Bring a date and have lunch or dinner for two, or try out our wines in the micro-winery.  It’s all waiting for you here.

Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
