Calla Lily Victoria Tea Room opens on LaSalle Street in downtown Aurora

Calla Lily Victorian Tea Room and Gifts opened at 83 S. LaSalle Street in downtown Aurora in early October. The tea room sits atop the northwest corner of historic LaSalle Street, otherwise known as “Auto Row.”

The location was originally a grocery store, Pierpont Grocery. The outside of the building along Benton Street is currently becoming a mural.

The tea room is open for lunch and tea service on Tues-Fri 11-3 & Sat 10-3. They are closed on Monday, and Sundays are reserved for private events.

Calla Lily offers a full lunch menu including items such as chicken salad and egg salad, special soups, and a variety of scones and desserts.

One fall dessert is the Apple Mania Dainty with fresh apple crumb cake sitting on homemade apple sauce with caramel praline drizzle, whipped cream and crushed pecans for $2.95.

The tea room requires a reservation for Afternoon, Princess or High Tea only, at least 24 hours in advance. If you would like to dine in for lunch, no reservation is needed.
