Loved the background of tea in England and in the US. Great soup, great tea, and great treats. Loved the /lime curd sandwich... read more

The place was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Although service was a bit slow, the two waitresses were friendly and accommodating. It is fun to look around their shop at their unique gits, smelling teas and reading all their funny signs. We had reservations for 8 to attend their Holiday High Tea. Their website advertised an informative tea talk and holiday... More

Visited this tea room with three other friends and found this to be a great stop. Having been to many afternoon teas, Pickwick knocked my socks off! Everyone had something different and found each plate quite tasty. A sampler version of the sweet and savory plate is always available, but order ahead for the multi tier plates of sandwiches and...

This is a wonderful little place tucked away in downtown Frankfort. I especially love their quiches and salads--great for lunch with a friend!

We went to this lovely tea room to celebrate my birthday. I have shopped in their store but always wanted to have lunch there. It was so quaint, it's small but we got seated right away. The waitress asked if we wanted to sample their flavored teas. the menu was very interesting and selections were named after "little women" characters.... More

This is a cute place to go with your girlfriends for lunch or tea. A little pricey, but everything is homemade. Wonderful tea sandwiches, soups, scones, lemon curd, and, like its name, they have a long list of loose teas to choose from. You can choose from different menus, if you would prefer the formal tea service, or just lunch,... More

What a delightful little gem of a tearoom in the heart of historical Frankfort! I took my mother out for lunch at PickWick and had the most wonderful experience. We savored all of the amazing food we ordered and even tried some new teas. My mother couldn't stop raving about the quiche! I know we will be returning soon for... More

Located in the historic downtown of Frankfort, very cute, antiques galore, nice place on a cold day for a cup of tea, or during the summer months with one of their specialty chilled teas. or you can order lunch and one of the delicious pastries from their menu. Love the chicken salad on croissant roll. Extensive selection of teas, wonderful... More
