After reading other reviews, we decided to have the quiche for lunch. It came with French onion soup, salad and a delicious roll. We each had a pot of tea. Mine was fruity and my friends was spicy. We each tasted both teas. They were very good. We loved the decor. The different rooms were bright and cheery. My friend... More

This is a great choice for "afternoon" tea with delectable foods and nice piping hot tea. Although there is a quite limited tea selection (less than a dozen) the food was elegantly presented and quite tasty (i'm not a fan of chicken salad but the one I had here was amazing). I was a little worried that the food wouldn't... More

One specialty salad is offered daily. Ours was delicious and plentiful with chicken and pears. For a tea room, I was surprised there were few tea choices. The house tea was was fruity and delicious.

Been coming here for years -- reasonable prices, excellent food! The quiche is my favorite, but everything is yummy -- salads fresh and desserts to die for -- and always light, fluffy homemade rolls with the meal!
