My wife and I were up from Florida on a scouting mission for a new home. We accidentally stumbled upon this place and I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant to have lunch in a "tea house" ...
Once we got inside we were greeted by a very friendly lady who was the owner. She was the Matriarch of the bunch, we assumed. This due to her daughter and granddaughter working there as well. The menu was small but made from scratch and written on a chalk board. The house was charming and quaint and full of antiques for sale.
I had home made chicken and dumplings with fresh fruit and my wife had a strawberry salad. Both were very memorable. He granddaughter who served us was young, personable and professional. You could tell she enjoyed her job.
After we left, I made a point to say that I really enjoyed the food and the service. I was glad my wife talked me into going in.
If you are ever in the Summerville area, I highly recommend stopping in- even if you are a guy!
