This teahouse opened several months ago and the lady owner has completely renovated the old restaurant site and made it completely bright inside, and very attractive overall. The food consists of soups, salads, numerous types of sandwiches, plus a hot entree each day, and of course numerous teas, and other drinks, plus home made desserts. Food is extremely good

I went to this location for a special 50th birthday party event. I read the reviews and was excited to visit. The owner was beyond rude. She insisted we pick purses up from the floor. With my daughter being young she had a diaper bag beside her with her special toys and this women made me move her bag of... More

I've been here several times when visiting Orillia. Talking with the owner, I realize the effort that has been put in to this tea cafe. This is apparent, not just in the food, but in the overall atmosphere, important to my choice of where to spend my time. The mushroom soup is very good and the egg salad with cucumber... More

After my last review, I had decided to give this little place a skip but a good friend wanted a spot of tea and we where in the neighbourhood. What a change, this time the owner Laurie was there and immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome. The scones must have been baked that morning as they where fresh and... More

We started our afternoon at the tea house for my soon to be sister in law's bachelorette. We had the private room to decorate and we all sat down for a great light lunch and some yummy tea's. The fresh baked scones are to DIE FOR!!! This was the perfect way to kick off the afternoon before we headed to... More

I have been there about 6 times. The first 4 times were good, the fifth time was not (must of been an off day), but this time was really nice. My son and granddaughter took me there April 05 for my birthday. We went early at 11:00 am so my granddaughter could come. We all had something different and it... More

It is a cozy little afternoon tea house. The owner Laurie is always friendly and the little desserts are fresh and delicious. Reasonably priced, for those on a budget.

The first time we went I enjoyed crisp warm crumpets with a homemade strawberry jam. My friend had a scone filled with lovely crunchy pieces of fruit and we each chose to sample 2 different teas The second time we came the scone was plain and stale and the clotted cream was on the verge of turning. I had the... More
