|Madam Puddifoot's Tea Shop|
Madam Puddifoot's Tea Shop was a small tea shop located on a side road off the High Street at Hogsmeade. It was owned by Madam Puddifoot. The decoration was very tacky and frilly. The windows steamed up and the gaudy tables and chairs were all claimed by teenagers holding hands or kissing over cups of tea and coffee. A bell over the door announced customers in a tuneful tinkle; the round tables were decorated with lacy napkins and china sugar bowls. Harry Potter was not fond of the appearance nor atmosphere, as it reminded him uncomfortably of Dolores Umbridge's office, and the sight of couples being so intimidate with each other made him feel even more uncomfortable.
Sometime between 1956 and the 1980s, this was where Elphinstone Urquart first proposed to Minerva McGonagall while he was holidaying in Scotland. McGonagall, surprised and embarrassed, turned him down as she still had feelings for Dougal McGregor.
On Valentine's Day in 1996, Harry Potter and Cho Chang had a cup of coffee here, and sat by Roger Davies and his girlfriend. Their date, however, turned out nightmarishly wrong; Cho started talking about Cedric, which made her cry, and when Harry mentioned Hermione Granger she became jealous and left dramatically, to the astonishment of the whole tearoom who stopped to watch them.
When Harry, Ron and Hermione did not meet Ginny Weasley during one of their Hogsmeade weekend trips, Harry wondered if she was "cosily closeted" at Madam Puddifoot's (which he thought of as the haunt of happy couples, presumably due to his disastrous date there with Cho) with Dean Thomas.
