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!

My coworkers and I ordered lunch from the tea room on numerous occasions. It's pricey and 80% of the time there was some complication with the order. The proprietor catered a charity cocktail party fundraiser and served coleslaw among other things, which is completely inappropriate for the occasion. She was rude and condescending to the charity's staff....the same people who... More

Absolutely love this place! My favorite is the chicken spaghetti and mandarin orange salad. Also very good is the broccoli salad, and you must try the almond tea. Not something I'd usually order but it's delicious! And don't forget about dessert. All of which are great. Chocolate cake being my favorite. The service is impeccable as always!

Good food for adults or children. I enjoy taking my grandchildren- letting them get dressed up and having a granny day lunch. They feel special and I enjoy the food and their company
