Just lovely!

My mom and I like to come here for lunch. It is a nice place to come for a leisurely dining experience. We sip tea, talk, watch the world go by outside and relax. You can have a nice light meal and still have room for a pretty dessert. If you've never been to a tea room, this is the... read more

The ambiance of Willows is to die for---I would worry about anyone who didn't smile at first glance of it. The staff was another matter when a coworker and I tried it for lunch on a weekday that they were about half full. After sitting unattended for a few minutes we ordered the special from the chalkboard. A bit over... More

My grandma told me about this restaurant because she knows that I love hot tea! It was such a fantastic experience. I ordered the egg salad sandwich, my grandma order two scones, and we got 3 pastries! All the food was delicious, but our waitress forgot to brew our tea until after we had our food! But she apologized and... More

I have enjoyed tea rooms in many parts of the country and this is one of the most darling. The children's area with books about tea parties, the ambience, the everything British. What a gem for Panama city and its quaint downtown.

I did not expect to find a British tea room in downtown Panama City, Florida - but how delighted am I that I did! My husband is not one for tea, so he came with me out of love not out of passion for china teapots. He loved it! I had the tea and little bites, he had a sausage... More

I stopped in on the recommendation of a local. It was the perfect spot for a light afternoon snack and cool break while browsing the local shops. I ordered a Devon cream tea which consists of two scones and a pot of your choice of teas. (The shop offers full meals as well.) I had plain scones with Devon cream... More

I love to go to Willows just to have a pot of tea and a good think in a charming environment. I will often go just for a pot of tea as they have a huge selection and I can't find an atmosphere quite like it anywhere else. It makes me want to pull out my handwritten letters and write... More

We love visiting tea rooms when we travel, but this was one we could have happily skipped. Surroundings are very good, interesting tidbits on locations in Britain on every table. Service is so-so. Prices were quite high compared to most. Scones were very tiny, and overpriced, as were other selections. Don't bother.

We had a very enjoyable time as we enjoyed tea, sandwiches and pastries. We would definitely recommend it and will return!

First of all they didn't have the first two entree items I ordered. When I finally settled for a third choice, it arrived as such a small portion that it should have been considered an appetizer. My dining partner ordered a sandwich that look OK, but not spectacular. I'm of the opinion this might be a lovely English Tea Room,... More
