Spotlight: Kathleen’s Tea Room

Kathleen's Tea Room Window

One type of business that we don’t come across often enough in NY is the good old-fashioned english-style tea room. Kathleen’s tea room, located at 979 Main St, in the historic district of downtown Peekskill, takes you back to a bygone era and when you step inside, time stands still. They offer more than 60 teas tableside, in addition to mouth-watering scones, desserts, soups, and sandwiches to please every palette. Patrons describe Kathleen’s as travel-worthy, nostalgic, quaint, and charming with attentive, warm service and delicious, fresh food.

Since 2010, Kathleen’s tea house has been owned and operated by Vivian Cyndi McKenzie. Vivian is a Peekskill native, mother of three, and Business Improvement District executive board member. Vivian McKenzie recently made history as the first African-American woman to be nominated for Mayor of Peekskill. If elected, McKenzie will become the second African-American woman to lead a Westchester County town or city.

Small Businesses like these are what make each city and town within the Hudson Valley so unique. When business owners are deeply involved in their community’s growth, positive change is inevitable. We at iHeart Hudson Valley want to bring attention to these small businesses so that they can continue to thrive through thick or thin with local support.
