The food was fresh and very yummy. It wasn't A LOT of food, but so good. The chef is a trained Northern Italian culinary cook. They've been here for 30 years!!!

I have been eating at La Petite Tearoom for many years since I happened upon it while visiting the Williamsburg Antique Mall. It started with a lovely cup of tea and a homemade dessert and progressed to many lunches (with desserts of course). The bread pudding (not like any you have had before), made with seasonal fruit is my favorite.

It was rainy and chilly today (July 3rd) and generally I would never leave the river. However, the family wanted to go to an antique mall in Williamsburg. So I went along for the ride. When we arrived, there was an announcement on the loudspeaker about a tea room. I thought to myself, food in an antique mall? So I... More

I have enjoyed this tea room for years and it is a place that will be unforgettable! The food is all home made. Begin with soup and a sandwich. The chicken salad with cranberries is my favorite followed by the Scottish egg salad and the club. Enjoy with hot tea or cold. Don't skip dessert! All desserts are homemade. The... More

This is a wonderfully, tiny tea room inside the Williamsburg Antique Mall in Lightfoot, Virginia. Everything is hand-made and organic, and Jean is full of information about tea, England, and quality food preparation. We took our future son-in-law, who was born and raised raised in England, and he loved the scones and clotted cream! While we ate, the ladies at... More

My husband and I were thoroughly charmed by this sweet tea room in a fun antique mall close to the Williamsburg Outlet Mall and Williamsburg Pottery Factory. Jean, the shop's owner and her daughter serve a delicious afternoon tea with choices of tea flavors, both hot and iced, soups, salads, sandwiches and decadent desserts. Our Acorn Squash and Apple Soup... More

What a lovely tearoom - we couldn't believe it was in an antique mall! The food was homemade and delicious. The hostess was so gracious - she made us feel at home. I hope La Petite Tearoom stays in the Williamsburg Antique Mall for a long time.
