We were seated ok, but our server returned 10 mins later to take our order, and 12 minutes later, a pot of tea and the cheese board we ordered arrived. (Maybe they had to run out to the cheese shop?). I dunno, but an explanation would have been nice. Water doesn't take that long to boil.

They open at 10 am for brunch and I had the mushroom and carmelized onion omelette, which was fabulous! Portion was just right but if you are a big eater may consider it on the small side but the price matched the size and both pleased me. Not a large brunch menu but enough, and it is vegetarian. They have... More

I love visiting Tea rooms and was so excited to bring my mom and daughter here. We all regretted coming to this place. Upon entering, it is so hot and muggy in the room with flies all over the place. There were 3 tables unoccupied but we had to wait 13 minutes for the server to clean a table and... More

On short notice my friend and I used a Groupon to have afternoon tea at the Tea Party. We had a reservation for 2:30 although at that time of day the tea room was not any where near full. The tea choice was really extensive and the one we choose was lovely. It was served in a nice china and... More

This picturesque little tea party place makes your childhood tea parties come back to life but with real and delicious food and too many tea selections to chose from. We got the cheese platter to start with but will skip it next time because once all our snacks came we had leftovers. They have a few different tea party options... More

My daughter and I stopped for the Mad Hatter Tea for two (reserve ahead). This is a great meal of sandwiches, scones, veggies/dip, desert and tea all served on one of those tiered plates. The serving size was very decent so it served as a good lunch for both of us. The restaurant is close to all the Ottawa Market... More

We used a Group-On for this business and were pleased with the results. Before I forget though, be sure and make reservations if you intend to have what is referred to as "Afternoon Tea". Time is needed for the fresh preparation of sandwiches and pastries. This is served from 12 to 5 pm. Personally as a 65 year old man... More

Enjoyed my Mad Hatter Tea Party for two. They have a large assortment of teas to pick from. They have all the teas displayed in jars against the wall. We tried a Vanilla Chia tea and the Mad Hatter tea which is an assortment of several teas. Both were good. They then start with serving you a veggie platter with... More

We went for Mother's Day Tea; my daughter, my mother and myself. We had a wonderful time there. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. The choice of teas was overwhelming!
