I enjoy afternoon tea and have been to several throughout Ontario. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorites! The town of Erin is quaint and welcoming. Maddie Hatter is in the main strip and offered many options for parking. The tea...shoppe itself was bigger than I expected and easily allowed for social distancing. Our table was set up when we arrived (we made a reservation) and the tea options were plenty. All three of us ordered a different flavor and they were all yummy. The food was AMAZING!!! From the finger sandwiches to the scones to the desserts...each piece was scrumptious and flavorful. And all the flavors blended so well together. The best part of our experience was our server, Shenice. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. She explained each piece of our food and had our mouths all watering before we devoured all if it. She mentioned that the food was new options, so hopefully they stay on the menu🙂More

This tea room and cafe is full of surprises. It is decorated with all thing tea and wonderland - pots, cups, clocks, hats . We really enjoyed the High Tea especially the mini shepherd's pie and the scones with cream and jam. Delicious and delightful.

We had the best tea room experience at Maddie Hatter's! We were greeted in the most cheerful manner. We had the most delicious high tea......the food was exactly what we expected and tasted even better. the scones were to die for. great ambience, an intimate...atmosphere. We are going back for sure. Great value. I have been to tea rooms all over the place, many of the high end ones and I have to say that high tea in Erin at Maddie Hatter gives them all a run for their money!More

My husband and I had lunch and high tea at Maddie’s. My husband loved his quiche however, my high tea didn’t meet my expectations. For a high tea of $25, I found it lacking on taste and appeal. I have had high tea in many...similar places however this was a disappointment. The ambiance and service was very good.More

I just had a BLT with egg and a cup of tomato tortellini soup, absolutely scrumptious! The soup was especially good, no salt or pepper required, just perfect!

We had a wonderful time at Maddie Hatter. We enjoyed the ambience while having High Tea. The selection was delicious. The Christmas tea (vanilla and almond) I drank was delicious that I also bought some for home. We had a lovely time chatting and eating...and did not feel rushed to leave. The staff was very engaging. We definitely will come back.More

A charming little tea house with a large list of specialty teas and delicious desserts. We enjoyed the scones and sampled shortbread and were not disappointed. The scones were served warm with butter and jam and not a crumb was left on either plate! Our...tea came piping hot and remained hot throughout the time we were there The room is decorated with many interesting small treasures and was a lovely backdrop for a casual afternoon girls' chat over a cup of tea and a treat. Our waiter Daniel was attentive and funny despite a room full of patrons, adding to our pleasant afternoon. We will be back for an opportunity to try lunch fare before the summer is over!More

I love to come to Maddie Hatter Tea shop in Erin on Sunday morning's for lunch.. The food is so delicious and the menu has everything that I love to eat. I have spent many years going to places to eat, but this is by...far the best place to get down to earth food and wonderful service. Coming to Maddie's starts my week off feeling great.More

A hidden gem located in the quaint village of Erin. We took our mums out for a high tea that we pre booked and really loved it. We had a room to ourselves and had "Royal High Tea" which consisted of 3 tier cake stand...with an assortment of savory and sweet fares. Complementing this was a choice of loose leaf tea from the drink menu. We decided to celebrate Christmas with mimosas!More

Our Tea shop is located in an old historic building on the Main street in Erin. I would not consider it wheel chair accessible due to the step leading into the front door and the size of our bathrooms.
