No scones, no coffee cups? Gave me a glass cup to put my coffee in that burned my hand. When I asked for a coffee cup they said they were out? Quiche was good but was about 3 bites.

Thank Vonnie3

Sorry for your bad experience, although I don't understand why there were no sconces or coffee cups as I check the inventory myself. We had plenty of sconces perhaps you didn't order them. As for the coffee (glass) cup I believe they have handles. I will ask what the problem was with the staff and make sure to rectify it.... More

This was an amazing afternoon filled with wonderful tea, scones, pastries... and tea sandwiches.... truly a do no miss even if for lunch. Great place to hold a little girls tea party as well since the atmosphere is welcoming and not snootie. We will be back again, and this time, I am trying the quiche!

This place has had yet again new owners and a new lick of paint. We tried it last week giving it the benefit of having new owners ....The place looks pretty enough but that was it. They claim to be a British Tea Room but no one is British there (far from it In fact) and none of the food... More

Continuing our sampling of tea rooms in the Orlando area, we finally made it all the way up to Dickens in Lake Mary. It had excellent reviews, and we were really looking forward to it. We ended up disappointed we'd driven this far, and, frankly, hungry. The setting is cute, and the service was decent. The problem was the food.... More

Dickens Coffee and Tea House offers a wonderful alternative to those who wish to do something slightly different. The choice of teas was outstanding. The sandwiches, from tasty chicken salad to cucumber and cream cheese, were quite good. I particularly liked the scones and the good selection of mini pastries.

I sometimes go for early afternoon tea and a light lunch while on my lunch break. The tearoom is quiet and nicely decorated.
