Tea Time and Quaint Tea Shoppe in Downtown Prattville

A casual tea house with excellent leaf tea choices and delicious sandwiches and freshly baked scones. The quiche is outstanding.

Excellent food. Gracious and uniquely personal service. The ambiance of the house itself lends a true "step back in time" Tea experience.

I've been to this tea house several times and it's always a nice experience. The food is good, especially the scones and salad! A little pricey, but you can sit over pots of tea and visit with friends all afternoon. Nice gift shop and loose tea selections. Reservations are recommended and check what days and times they are open before... More

My wife and I visited the Smith-Byrd Tea Room along with my sister and niece on May 6. It was our second visit in about three years as we live in Colorado. Can we transport this fine place and good people to Denver? Since our first visit David and Beth have made many improvements to this Old South home--and it... More

We visited Smith-Byrd House Tea Room 6 May 15. The food, service, & ambience was outstanding as always. We brought family from out of town to enjoy the tea room & they couldn't say enough good things about the tea room & the owners, Beth & David. From the many choices of premium loose teas to the delicious quiche, sandwiches,... More

I have been having lunch at the Smith-Byrd House since it opened over 8 years ago and I plan to keep on going back. The food is fantastic and the assortment of teas is great. What I appreciate about this establishment is the fact that the owners are renovating the home and property themselves. They work hard, research the history... More

I agree with the observations made in the review titled "Alabama Tea Room" but I'm a little surprised by the (stereotypical) jab that this property's rundown appearance must be typical of Alabama tea rooms. Not true. Alabama is actually well known for its many, many beautiful Victorian B&B's as well as a nice smattering of tea rooms throughout the state... More

David and Beth (the owners) are always so delightful and accommodating. It is nice to be able to relax for a few hours and enjoy some quiet time in the tea room.

First of all, let me say the actual food was good. The tea room where we had the tea itself was adequate. My concern about the Smith-Byrd house has to do with how well this property is maintained. When I first drove by the place, I called to make sure it was still open. Frankly, the house looks abandoned! The... More
