but it is a bit cramped & the service wasn't so great. The "High Tea" selection was good. My Book Club of 6 went and we did enjoy what we had, although 2 orders were incorrect. The décor is lovely & they have a delightful outdoor area.

This delightful English tea room in Carefree has been a favorite spot for locals and tourists for years. Jo, the owner, is a Brit, and all the English touches she provides guests are great-- from the menu items, the tea selection, the lovely atmosphere to the adjoining shop where unique gifts can be found. Going to the tea room for... More

This beautiful feminine, quaint restaurant/store served us their delicious Tea of the Day. So yummy. We then ordered Salmon Sandwiches with Chicken soup of the day. That too was delicious. We sat on the patio. We had our well-behaved dog along with us. Pet friendly outside. Very friendly owner and staff. Everything was perfectly English! A must visit and experience.... More

This is a quaint, adorable shop/restaurant, so very British. A wonderful place for ladies to enjoy time together. Many women wear hats. There are so many pretty knick-knacks to look at, from china tea services to jewelry and stationary. It is definitely a very feminine place. The teas that they serve are absolutely amazing, you don't need sugar or crème... More

All the trappings of an English Tea Room, from fancy table settings and superb little cups and plates ... to a life-size cut-out of the Queen. We ladiy-groups have frequently gone there and always had a great time being pampered by the waitstaff. At our most recent visit, there was tea-of-the-day: chocolate cherry! Delicious. We have tried the formal tea... More

Great lunch, not a fake British experience. This is the real deal. Jo is a delight. Highly recommended for a luxury lunch. Good vale for this level of quality.

This tea room is chockfull of English tea things, with every shelf and every inch of wall space covered, and you'd think that would make it seem overcrowded. But it does not. The abundance of frilly cute stuff just adds to the fun. Go have tea. We had a wonderful turmeric tea there; we also had the little sandwiches. I... More

This is a wonderful place to take out of town visitors or just go with friends - but I suggest leave the husbands or significant others at home. It has an eclectic assortment of items on display and to purchase. It defies description. Fisrst - the food is excellent if slightly overpriced. The tea selections are wonderful. The biggest problem,... More

Not quite what I expected to find in the Arizona desert but we thought we should give it a go seeing as we originate from the UK. The place is crammed with quaint bone china part tea sets, similar to those my mum has back in England. And, just like hers, many of the components don't match! The place is... More
