Great tea and scones

Definitely need a reservation or you risk a long wait for a table. Nice selection of teas and food, not just the typical afternoon tea fare. Charming decor but not the reason for dining here.

I wanted to go somewhere besides a bar for my bachelorette party and The House of Commons worked wonderfully. They were very understanding of my fluctuating numbers for my reservation and they were able to provide the same wonderful little sandwiches for me gluten free as they provided to everyone else. All of the sandwiches, scones and cakes were quite... More

Outstanding. Loved it. In not much of a tea drinker, but, I swear, I think I am now. I had the raspberry tea and fell in love. I'd go back tomorrow , but I'll be in the area early and they don't open until ten. We had sandwiches that were good, but their tea is the star of the show.... More

Not as fancy and no live music but charming and quaint and just as good for tea scones and sandwiches. Great deserts and nice choice of teas.

The tea and sandwiches were delightful. My only complaint was the desserts on the top. They did have macarons and other pastries in the display case that were much better than the ones given with the tea course. They were so affordable that we just ordered extra ones instead of eating the ones that were offered. By far the most... More

Great little sandwiches, very authentic. Wonderful tea selection. Love the lady who runs the place. One of my favorite spots for lunch!

The food was delightful and the service was impeccable. I made a Boxing Day reservation for my husband and me rather last minute and the staff was very responsive via Facebook. The atmosphere is charming and it would make a lovely place for a party or shower, or just a girl's day out. It was a pleasant surprise that it... More

This is a great place to meet up with a girlfriend and have tea. Good cookies and little finger sandwiches. Take something home, too.

This small restaurant is my favorite in the United States. I've been there several times and will continue to visit when I'm in Denver. The staff is friendly, the scones and ice tea are excellent, and I highly recommend their sandwiches. Parking can be an issue, but it's worth a few laps around the block or a short walk up... More

While the place seemed charming from the outside, the inside did not not live up to the hype. The paint peeled in several places. We reserved a table in advance, and was promptly seated upon our arrival. They placed reserved with Scrabble pieces. I found that to be a rather novel idea. The tea served was 'average'. You have the... More
