The Emerald Necklace Inn & Tea Room is one of Cleveland’s historic treasures. This brick building built in 1863 during the Civil War. ” One of Fairview’s most tender love stories began in this valley setting”. NIck and Mary Gilles, 53 years of marriage Gilles Sweet School is a name sake for their son. In 1910, Nick was voted the 1st Treasurer of the city and was fondly remembered by every new bride who who came to the store; she received a washboard as a wedding gift. This tradition is carried on today with the Emerald Necklace Inn, (1999), Inn Keeper, Anna Lytvyn. Today the building houses a Bed&Breakfast, Tea Room. Proud of their roots, new generation of the Gilles family visit. Family members are buried in Fairview Park Cemetery.
Loved coming here for afternoon tea! The afternoon tea included unlimited tea, soup/salad, tiered plate with tea sandwiches/scones/breads, and dessert. They also had high tea, which includes all of the above plus fruit and quiche.
We were really impressed! We loved the decor and all of the food and tea was so delicious. The service was friendly, and the prices were great! Will definitely be back.
