A Real Irish Experience

The Irish Tea Room is in the back of an Irish shop. It serves basic, excellent food for those on the go. Each day there is a large choice of salads, a soup special, sandwiches and boxty. A really good pre-theater choice. Open only for lunch.

Tucked away in the back of a store is this small, friendly, traditional tea shop--they have coffee too, and scones, traditional Irish treats like Barm Brack and empire cookies (biscuits)--all yummy. More substantial Irish pub fare is also on the menu. We were hot and thirsty so the freshly brewed REAL iced tea was perfect!! Seek out this spot for... More

Came here for a quick lunch on a friends recommendation. There menu is not huge but considering its size it was understandable (It is located at the back of the Irish Design shop). Each entrée comes with 2 sides which are quite generous. After looking at others plates, althoughit is not stated on the menu we decided to order one... More

The food is all prepared but for what it is, it is great! The Boxty, Quiche, beet salad, tomato cucumber salad and salad of the day were all fresh and delicious. The server was attentive and seemed invested in the place. We were there on a beautiful Niagara afternoon and sat in the pretty (though, tightly packed) back yard. You... More

Have visited with a Celiac friend several times, and she cried the first time she saw the desserts! The main meals are tasty but not spectacular, but the desserts are amazing. They are gluten free, but rate right up there with any great dessert, with banoffee pie, Mars squares, etc. Another bonus is that they sell Barry's Tea. The best.... More

We stopped at the Irish Tea Room for lunch. It's a small room at the back of the Irish Design Store. It was busy, but luckily we got a small table for 2 right away. The menu is limited but varied. All the entrees were $14.25 each which included 2 side salads. I had the Guinness Steak Pie which was... More

Stopped in for a cold drink and a quick bite on a hot day of shopping. The gluten free options were great and the sandwiches we had were very yummy.

We loved going here for lunch and did so 2 days in a row. Most of their food and bakery items are gluten free and very delicious. There are a few options for lunch and a variety of salads to choose from. It was a bargain and a great atmosphere. We liked sitting outside.

Conveniently located at the back of an excellent Irish shop, right next to the Royal George Theatre, the Irish Tea Room is a great place for a hearty lunch. Great salads, and, as you'd expect, Irish specialties. We enjoyed our salads, whole grain bread, salmon cakes, and mince tart for dessert.
