The T Garden Café, Bryan
So here's the big secret: Aggies are tea sippers, too! They sneak over from College Station for lunch and tea with chef-owner Jennifer Hardeman Lilleker, a Bryan native, and a graduate of Culinary Institute of America and of The University of Texas at Austin. Yes, a tea sipper in Bryan serves tea to Aggies. The mind reels. With tea, by reservation only, 2 to 5 p.m., you might snack on a truffle but consider Jennifer's awesome desserts, such as peach-amaretto-blackberry cobbler. For reservations, call (979) 268-4171.
