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

Beautifully restored old house, the Wisdom Tea House is very welcoming. The food is great - wraps, soups, scones, pies, cakes. Its all great. There are a variety of dried teas to take home. Really sweet little place.

I enjoy the tea house. Good variety of hot and cold tea. Good bakery and sandwiches. In the summer sit outside. If you are visting Monument - do come in.

I love everything about Wisdom Tea House, other than somewhat limited hours. I would be there all the time! I highly recommend a scone with all the fixin's, and any tea they have is amazing. Well-kept facility inside and out. Rustic feel upstairs, with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Eating outside on a sunny day is great, they have plenty... More

The time I spent at the Wisdom Tea House was pleasant and refreshing. I went with a group of ladies and had the high tea. The food was good, especially the chicken salad. The teas were delicious and the hostess was very knowledgable about the different kinds of teas. The only reason I didn't give the establishment 5 stars is... More

We’re pleased you enjoyed our Traditional Afternoon Tea with your friends. Our chicken salad continues to be our single most popular menu item since our first chef brought the recipe to us 7 years ago. We regret we didn’t explain how long it takes to properly brew a pot of tea, especially an herbal tea. Taking the order, racing downstairs,... More
