What People Are Saying

"Had afternoon tea with a friend today- such a charming place with delicious food and tea! I really appreciated their willingness to make a few adjustments because of my food allergies. Will definitely be returning!"


"A wonderful cozy experience. The tea is lovely as is the place. I enjoy mother-daughter time here. But a Sunday tea with friends is good too."


"The 4-course meal was delicious! The tea was fantastic. They have great service there and the place looks super adorable."


"We love this place!! The menu is different every time, fresh products and creative menu! Lovely relaxing time guaranteed."


"Went there with 7 other ladies for my birthday. Service was fabulous, food was tasty, a great place for afternoon tea."


"This place is very darling and the seeing the seasonal decorations is half the fun of coming here (see these pictures from Halloween time below). Come here hungry because they serve a lot! It's a family run business that bases its menu largely on the garden. I cannot recommend it enough! It's a fantastic value and will make anyone fall in love with afternoon tea."


Cute, well made and well matched foods and tea. Love going here.
