Tea for two

Almost everything was homemade :-) The berry tea was excellent All food was fresh. It is a great place for vegetarians. The desserts were to die for.

Generations of my family have been eating at The Spicery. It seems we continue to go now for the memories, instead of a quality meal. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful home, with lovely decor and nestled in a quaint part of downtown Glendale, but for my sake I won't do it again. If you're not ordering hot... More

I had a solo lunch and enjoyed every bite. From the house brewed berry iced-tea to the cream of asparagus soup to the chicken salad. Everything was very fresh and deliciious and served with a smile. Lovely decor. The owner works very hard to make sure each customer is treated well.

I have been to The Spicery for tea twice and both times my friends and I really enjoyed the food and the experience. It is reasonable and a fun place. Lunch is also served there. It is reasonable and a great place to experience.

So glad you enjoyed Afternoon Tea at The Spicery in Our 1895 Home. We call it Afternoon Tea but as you know you can enjoy it anytime we are open, we just need reservations made at least a day before your visit so we have time to prepare all the goodies that come with our Afternoon Tea. More

I met 2 former colleagues for lunch at this lovely cafe set in a old home in Old Town Glendale, Arizona. I loved the simple menu of soups, salads and sandwiches. I enjoyed a delicious vegetarian omelet (no onions...thank you very much). The homemade rolls were a bit of fluffy bread heaven. The 3 of us split a chocolatey, gooey,... More

What a wonderful experience.. Definitely a Girly place, wonderful little finger food served with tea and delicious scones, a quiet lunch where you can talk to each other and enjoy the lace and flowers that decorate the rooms.

This restaurant in an historic 1895 home in Glendale's historic district. They have daily specials as well as quiche, sandwiches and soup. I had the vegetable quiche with potato salad and a huge homemade dinner roll. The portions are huge but I did save room for one of their desserts - a pinapple walnut cake, which was also delicious.

My mother has been enjoying The Spicery for a year or so and finally took me. What a lovely charming room, hard to believe you are sitting in Arizona.
