My friends and I celebrated with a candlelight bridal tea at detours in Elizabeth City, NC. The food was scrumptious and we had a lovely time dressing up and playing tea party. We also got to tour the house and gardens. Afterward we walked around historic downtown and along the waterfront. Great experience and I highly recommend it to any... More

Four of us celebrated a friend's birthday with tea at De'Tours. The hostess, Bonnie, has a lovely, welcoming home filled with family heirlooms which are in use for the teas. We had a lovely array of tea sandwiches and pastries along with several varieties of tea. Bonnie let us try on vintage hats and was sure to take pictures to... More

She was able to take care of every request we had. There were 16 of us and it was perfect, from the atmosphere, the food, and most of all the wonderful hostess and... More

A group of us decided to surprise our friend with a Birthday Tea. It was very last minute and Bonnie graciously said yes and prepared a fantastic spread of tea sandwiches, scones, truffles and a wonderful assortment of teas. The day was dreary, so we were not able to go about the town, but after the tea, she gave us... More

I met my sister and father at Bonnie's 1853 Greek Revival home in historic Elizabeth City, VA for tea/lunch and a tour. She greeted us at the door in period costume and my jaw dropped at the beauty of her home and antiques. We had a great time! Bonnie really spoiled us and made us feel special. The food and... More

My husband and I recently decided to do something a little different while vacationing at the Outer Banks. We spent the afternoon with Bonnie, having a delicious tea and hearing many stories about the house and the town. Bonnie is a wonderful cook, knowledgeable tour guide, and gracious host. It was a wonderful, relaxing afternoon. Highly recommended!

Ok, my sister's babyshower was hosted by the tearoom. It was fabulous! I am severly gluten intolerant and everything was gluten free!. The house is glorious and I was given an in depth tour which included a showing of some of the owner's jewelry. I am a huge vintage jewelry fan, so this was quite a treat. Like I said,... More

Though we were not a group the lady agreed to give us a tour and serve tea afterwards. We were greeted like old friends and then went on the historic tour of the city first. Bonnie is so knowledgeable of all the historic homes and the story behind since she explored them all when shopping for a new house some... More
