Six months after Lady Camellia Pastry and Tea Room first announced it was looking to move into Alexandria, the owners seem to have found their new waterfront home.

According to a special use permit, Macaron Bee is applying to move into 225 Strand Street. Restaurant owner Deborah Kim said while the name on the special use permit is Macaron Bee, the location will be Lady Camellia Pastry and Tea Room.

The tea room, once described by Washington City Paper as “a six-year-old’s tea party fantasy“, had been located in Georgetown before it closed last year.

Kim said plan is to open late this year.

“[We’re opening] towards the end of the year; sometime in the fall,” Kim said. “We’re trying to serve British-style afternoon tea and high tea dinner.”
