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.

A wonderfully quiet relaxing place to go to catch up and/or just get away from activities of life.offers a few specific varieties of foods and a wide variety of teas.rather challenging to choose but opportunity to go back again and try a different one or take one home with you.a lovely tea room.
