Have been going here whenever we visit my Mother-in-Law for the day. Not only are the people here wonderful but the food is sooo good!!! Each time I try something different and never have been disappointed. I only wish I could find something like this restaurant close to home (live a few hours away)!

Surprised my daughter with a high tea experience. The Magic Rolling Pin did not disappoint. Atmosphere was wonderful, three tier tray of goodies were delicious and tea was steeped to perfection and fabulous! Also ordered the Harvest Vegetable Quinoa Stack and the Chicken Crepe. Both were outstanding. Very prompt and friendly waitress. Clean and cozy establishment. Great place to take... More

My daughter treated me to lunch for my birthday, March 28, 2015. The service and food were excellent. This was my first visit to The Magic Rolling Pin but will not be my last.

Nice place and friendly staff but quiche was cold and soggy, tea bisquit spongy and it tasted like yesterday's lettuce in the salad. Coffee was very nice and wide selection of teas. Server tried way too hard to sell dessert. Not going back.
