Q: Who is Mr. Brambles?
A: Mr. Brambles is our resident Teddy Bear.
The legend about Mr. Brambles is that he was visiting Naples Florida one day and decided to stop in for a spot of tea. He became so in love with the tea room that he became a permanent resident. Mr. Brambles can be reserved to be at your table for tea. It is known that Mr. Brambles has his own tea party after the tea room closes. He shares stories with his friends that come to life from the garden about the children that he had tea with that day. His wife Mrs. Brambles in her red hat that sits in the back of the tea room keeps a close eye that good manners are used.
