We loved the food there. And the gift shop had some wonderful items. I bought my grand daughter a beautiful tea cup and saucer.

We were expecting to have an English afternoon tea type meal, but there is nothing like that on the menu. It's a regular restaurant lunch menu. The food is good, but when you're looking to eat in a real tea room, you're disappointed. The servers were GREAT, and the shopping out front is just FABULOUS. We loved the dishes that... More

I am not sure what you mean by a "TRUE or REAL" tearoom. Having just gotten home from Ireland where I was in a number of tearooms and England the year before, I am going to assume you mean that I don't serve an afternoon tea of sconces, sweets and savories. Most of the tearooms I have visited in Europe... More

We had lunch at the tea room and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We each had the chicken salad sandwich (special), accompanied by soup and salad. I tried the cream of cilantro soup which was very flavorful and unique. My husband had the tomato basil. It was also excellent. The salads were mixed spring greens with pretty carrot curls on top....

My wife and I had lunch at the tea room and were greatly impressed at the menu and the atmosphere. Although they were busy our wait was short and we spent the time browsing the antiques for sale next door. Great service and views of wildlide outside the picture windows made our visit quite enjoyable. Will be back!

Such a friendly and welcoming tea room! We were warmly greeted by the hostess who welcomed us and showed us to our table. Our waitress was equally nice, having good knowledge of the menu and making the dining experience a pleasant one. The icing on the cake was the proprietor, Charlene! She personally welcomed us at our table and then... More

Everything that each of the four of us ate was so-ooo good! We passed bites around so everyone could taste it all!

Our innkeeper told us about this tea room and oh, was she correct! The ambiance was lovely and the food was out of this world! Everything my husband and I ordered was scrumptious! Coleen was so friendly and helpful with the menu items. We also bought a teapot for our granddaughter, who had just traveled to England and is really... More

Service was amazing, Food was amazing and the decor was lovely While my husband seemed a bit uncomfortable as it was pretty frilly, he said the black coffee was the best he ever had. All in all it was the best food we received in Eureka Springs! Will go again! P.S I never heard of Cream of Cilantro soup, but... More

I love visiting my grandma and she loves traveling up to Eureka Springs when we have time. We went to Simply Scrumptious once before and it left such a tasteful impression that I make it clear we have to go every time we are in the area! =) The strawberry soup and turtle cheesecake are a must have!! The staff... More

We have been going to this tea room for several years now. The decorations hit you as you walk in--like a real English tea room. A lovely little gift shop is in the front. Then Charleen or one of her staff greets you warmly and takes you in to the beautifully decorated tea room overlooking a woods. We have our... More
