YORK-Pinkies up: local tea lovers have a new hot spot within their reach.

York Gardens & Tearoom is celebrating its grand opening from noon to 6pm on Thursday, December 8. The tearoom and full-service restaurant is located at 1126 George Washington Memorial Highway across the street from Kiln Creek Shopping Center in the space where Yorktown Tobacco was previously located. Space is limited, so registration is required to catch a first glimpse of the new establishment.

Owner Jimmy Howell said that beginning, Friday, December 9, daily lunch service will begin at 10am, daily high tea will follow at 2pm, and dinner service will be offered between the hours of 4:30pm and 8pm. Lunch will offer a variety of soups and sandwiches. High tea hour begins with piping hot tea accompanied by tasty “tea sandwiches” made fresh in the kitchen. Then come warm scones served with preserves and the tearoom’s very own York Cream in addition to other handcrafted desserts.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
