The Tea Party
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

In the heart of the old Nye Beach downtown, our building has been extensively remodeled, but began life as a live theater in vaudeville days. In the late 20′s it became one of Newport’s first movie houses. The 50′s brought a restaurant, but from the early 60′s until 1996 it was a clothing store.
After a period of rebuilding, Tea & Tomes opened in December of 1998. The wood floors and wainscoting were recovered from the original building, as were many of the interior doors. The front door was made from old timbers from a bridge that once crossed the Great Salt Lake. The Victorian style cast iron fireplace was imported from England. In the kitchen, your food has been prepared in a four oven AGA, the most traditional of the English cast iron “cookers”.
