A cup of tea is an excuse to share great thoughts with great minds.

At Pinecone Cottage Tea House, we want you to experience the beauty of the world through our tea centric cuisine. Afternoon Tea at Pinecone Cottage is that moment in time when friends gather to enjoy special foods and share their lives. Delectable teas, delicious sweets and savories, teapots of every variety from traditional English to whimsically modern, tables dressed in linen - the quaint atmosphere of the Pinecone Cottage Tea House located in downtown Downers Grove is the perfect spot for an Afternoon Tea. Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian, and Vegan options are available.

Our Afternoon Tea, Loose Tea, Petite Tea Treats, Specials, and Catering Menus can be found HERE.
