I was here earlier today with a group of 8 for my sister's baby shower and everything was great! The service was amazing-- helpful, but not overbearing. I was worried because everyone was late because of the lack of parking around the tea house, but...More

My 5 year old daughter loves her afternoon tea, and this one was no exception. The shabby chic decor was really cute, and my daughter loved the hats that were available for sale there. I thought the actual food was mediocre, but I'd probably go...More
