This is to die for good food!!! We had the butterscotch pie and it was so good. The hostess is so sweet and the cookbook is definately something you should purchase.

My husband stopped here for a lighter lunch, and were pleased with our choice. I think we lucked out at getting a table right when we arrived, because like the other reviews imply, this is a hopping place! The menu is short and sweet, the food casual but fresh and so good! The cream of cilantro soup is FANTASTIC! We... More

This tasty lunch spot is located on Hwy 82 on the east side of Eureka Springs next to the Gingerbread House Antique Shop, not in downtown as the address E. Van Buren might imply. I enjoyed a delicious daily special of chicken panini with lemon-basil mayonnaise, peach iced tea, and tomato soup. I also recommend their lemon ice box pie,... More

Not hard to find but a little hidden next to a motel and connected to an overflowing antique shop. The owner gave me a hug when I came in! Little curio shop with moderate size dinning room attached. Very good service. We had the specials: a pannini with chicken, smoked guda, and red peppers; a very fresh garden salad with... More

This place is wonderful! Not only is the owner a wonderful lady, but her staff was friendly as well! I do recommend getting there when they open at 11:00 as they were packed when we left.

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
