Adorable place for lunch.

This is an adorable old home transformed into a little restaurant. They have wonderful tea, salads, sandwiches, soup and homemade baked goods. They have a very nice patio that one can relax on when the weather is good. They also have homemade ice cream in the summer. Oh, and local artists' works... read more

Please know that if you visit this restaurant, you order AT the counter. We sat at the table and waited and waited. Selection and atmosphere is wonderful, but both our chicken salad sandwich and lemon cake was dry. Try something different, but go.

Lovely place to eat healthy with a great assortment of teas. Sandwiches and salads are fresh. Great place to meet friends or just eat there by yourself.

This local gem is my favorite lunch spot! It is cozy, food is great and reasonably priced! The service is quick and I love the inside and outside seating! Quiches and salads and much more! Great desserts that change often and delite even the fussy! Great place to take out of town guests or have lunch with a BFF!

Good food with nice selection of gluten free items, but a bit pricy considering the smallish portions. Can get noisy when busy downstairs. Nice outside seating when the weather is cooperative. Great place to share a cup of coffee or a light lunch.

This is my favorite local place to grab lunch with girlfriends or tea with my daughter. The food is excellent and it is so quaint and charming. Their baked goods are divine and I love how you get to pick your own tea cup when you order tea.

One our favorite places for breakfast - the breakfast quesadilla is incredible. And, made even better by the homemade salsa.

Great place with great atmosphere! My daughter had to do food critic of a local restaurant and she picked Wisdom Tea House. The day we went, since the assignment was due to the next day, it had been snowing and schools were closing and city was shutting down early. We got there and saw that they were closed due to...

The environment of the tea house is very nice. Small rooms with just a few tables. Nice and varied furniture. I was disappointed to learn that there wasn't an option to buy a half wrap. So I didn't end up getting the Thai wrap I wanted. The turkey cranberry half sandwich I got was good but really nothing special. I... More

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your experience and plan to return. To make sure our food is served fresh, we only make whole wraps to order. We apologize if there was a miscommunication about our loose leaf tea. We do sell small and medium size bags of loose leaf tea and display them on our shelves.... More
