Beehive Tea Room seeing uptick in attendance

City, "attendance is up this year," said Lisa Brady, proprietor of

the unique eatery.

The cafe is equidistant from two Sundance screening venues - the

Rose Wagner Center for the Performing Arts and the Broadway Theatre

- and since officially partnering up with the Sundance Film Festival

a half-dozen years ago, has become a haven for film goers who want a

warm cup of tea in between or before or after films.

This year attendance has increased, Brady said, because of the new

NowSaltLake.com stage, which each evening during the festival has

hosted top-notch local artists with their own followings. (Tonight,

on Saturday, Jan. 28, acclaimed local singer-songwriter Kate MacLeod

will perform at 7:30 p.m. inside the cafe.)

The kitchen has been busy preparing favorties, Brady said, including

its signature house tea blend: "Bee Hive Cream & Honey," a black tea

with secret ingredients that Brady won't divulge. Another favorite

has been English "pasties," which are turnovers filled with any

number of different items, including curried vegetables. Brady said

an English director visited the Tea Room several nights ago and

complimented the cafe with its authentic pasties. "If we have

something, we might as well have something authentic," she said.

Also new this year is wine service; until this year, the cafe had

only 3.2 beer service. The location is popular for bridal showers,

Brady said, and toasting with wine is much preferrred to "toasting

with PBR."
