For homesick Brits or anglophiles with a tea habit, Carry On Tea and Sympathy is a must. This quaint little shop consists of shelves upon shelves of British products: tea, candy, biscuits, syrups, jam, soda, and non-edibles like tea cozies, videos, books, and even bath salts. Close your eyes and imagine you’re in England - everyone who works there seems to be an import, and most of the customers have an accent as well. Next door is the popular Tea and Sympathy, the small but cozy tearoom with the same owner. In true British style, it serves an impressive roster of tea along with food like beans on toast, shepherd’s pie, and sherry trifle. You can get many of these items in Carry On’s take-out line, and you won’t have to wait in the tearoom’s notoriously long line.
