NileGuide Expert tip:
Unique place for lunch. You would never guess you are in Reno.
This little shop in MidTown is the place to pick up that special gift or to have a Sunday High Tea surrounded by everything Celtic. This refurbished home has holiday items, apparel, books, music and unique art from Ireland and Scotland as well as handmade lotions and soaps, glassware and items for the home and garden. The prices are reasonable and items are made by local artists or are shipped directly from Ireland. You can pick up a Celtic necklace for around $15 or a handmade purse for around $30.
The Isles has a tea shop as well with tea service that includes a pot of tea and some biscuits or scones for around $5 for two people. Lunch is also served that includes Pasties for $8.25, Sausage Rolls for $7 or the Ploughman's Lunch for $9.25. Their Sunday High Tea includes a full spread of Irish delights including tiny sandwiches with cucumber and chive cream cheese or smoked salmon. Also included are scones with clotted cream, jam, lemon curd, fruit and a "bottomless" pot of tea. The Sunday High Tea is $14.95 per person and children are $10.
