It is a small location so either call and get reservations or order for take out. The food is great and I definitely recommend the bacon quiche or the chicken spaghetti. The desserts are wonderful especially the old fashioned lemon and chocolate bunt cakes (personal size) and my wife LOVES the toasted coconut pie!

Food is great! Mar Teres is a tearoom owned by two local women who do a great job! There is a wide variety on the menu every day with daily specials. As far beverages, the almond tea is my favorite! They also have coffee, regular tea, soft drinks, and a different specialty tea each day. The desserts are absolutely amazing!... More

I had heard good things about Mar Teres but was a little skeptical because it was so small. I was very pleasantly surprised how wonderful our lunch was. We shared tastes of each other's meals and we all agreed that everything was so good that we couldn't even pick a favorite.

Whenever I have a special occasion that needs celebrating, Mar Teres Tea Room is my "go to" destination. Yes, the tables are close, but the energy in the room is just exhilarating. Newbies find the experience daunting at first, but by the time they leave you see happy smiles on their faces. The light lunch is just perfect and the... More

My family and I absolutely love this place! It's hard to resist such wonderful food and wonderful people. They always have a different daily special along with their regular menu of soups, salads, sandwiches, quiches, and chicken spaghetti! We have tried a bunch of different things on their menu and have t found a single thing we don't like. Their... More

Everything is cooked from fresh ingredients. If it weren't such bad manners I would lick my plate clean!!

Thank you so much for your nice comments we always enjoy hearing from our customers. We enjoy watching young girls having tea in their teapots with their moms or dads. Yes we agree, our almond tea is pretty amazing and addictive. We look forward to serving you again soon More

Very crowded, but that is a good sign. Tables are very close together due to the cute small rooms. I got a plate of three different things and appreciated the chance to taste them all. I was just expecting a larger tea selection, hence the 4 stars. I would definitely go again!

We are so delighted you enjoyed your lunch and look forward to serving you again soon. The trio plate is a great way to enjoy your favorites. We carefully select our teas we serve. Due to small space we offer four teas daily, including a decaffeinated option and our famous almond tea. Hopefully one day we will have a larger... More

My office staff goes here for every birthday. The daily specials are always worth considering but we all usually fallback to our favorites: Mexican quiche; Luau salad; Chicken Salad; Chicken Spaghetti. Always leaving room for Lemon cake (hot, moist, with really lemony glaze) or Chocolate cake (hot, moist, with really chocolate glaze). Flavored tea or hot tea...it's all good!
