Simpson & Vail is nestled in a beautiful rock quarry. The tranquility of this setting, the soaring granite face of the quarry, the peaceful reflections in the water and the abundant wildlife, is conducive to moments of meditation over a cup of tea. Come and enjoy! Weather permitting, bring your lunch and savor a cup of Simpson & Vail tea in our picturesque gazebo, by the side of our stately quarry.
