After the tour, we will have lunch at Sue and Cathy's Little Tearoom in Tyler. Sue and Cathy have an excellent tearoom. People have been known to drive from Dallas just to have lunch there. They always have fresh rose arrangements on each table and will make you feel so welcome. The homemade rolls and rose jelly are their specialties.
