I had morning tea here on Friday and it seems as if the new venue is a hit - the café was full!

This has to be one of the best places in Port Elizabeth to meet with friends or family for lunch or tea! A beautiful garden setting, with the best apple pie and cream I have ever tasted. And their almond chicken salad is wonderful for a light lunch! I do know that they make all their own food from scratch,... More

If you want to taste the best apple pie and lemon tarts around, then the Rose Garden Tea cannot be missed! Excellent service and charming atmosphere included. An absolute MUST if you are in PE.

Everything thing was lovely until a table of about 10 chain smokers turned and sat opposite us. Under the no smoking sign they proceeded to light up and fumigate the entire area. Which makes it very unpleasant for other patrons.

This popular Tea House consistently serves delicious breakfasts and scrumptious lunches and this is our most favourite destination for a relaxing meal on their verandah.

Although as a breakfast or lunch-time venue it is very good it is without doubt the best coffee-time venue in P.E. . The offerings of confectionery is outstanding !!
