This was my 2nd time having tea at this lovely spot. As a tea-o-phile, I an always on the lookout for a quiet spot for tea. This place is not the Ritz in London, neither is it the Plaza in NYC. It is a lovely...More

The staff was friendly and prompt and the tea was pretty good. The teapot was covered with a hat instead of a teawarmer so it kind of put us off. However, the Queen's Tea was not very good. Three tiers filled with stale, cold treats...More

I tried this place because I wanted a tea experience. Perhaps I am not much of the tea drinker because the cup of tea was pretty flavorless to me. It smelled wonderful but tasted like hot water. However, the food was great. I had the...More

The best chicken salad around! Wonderful service and atmosphere! Soups, sandwiches, and all kinds of yummy food. Teas,(hot or cold) all great! Desserts are out of this world! If you haven't tried it you are really missing out!!!

If you're looking for a great tea room that isn't over-the-top girly, this is it! It still has the pretty china and serves a good English tea, but it doesn't feel like you're suffocating in flowers and lace. And, oh, the Downton Abbey Tea...I need...More
