Delicious Food at the Wild Plum Tea Room
Tucked away in the woods of the Glades Arts and Crafts Community, The Wild Plum Tea Room offers guests a chance to enjoy delectable food in a quiet mountain setting. Picture yourself gazing out onto forested views from the porch on warm mountain days.
Styled after Austrian teahouses, the Wild Plum offers a unique restaurant experience inspired by European dining. In the mountains of Austria, locals would gather for fresh food and good company.
