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

My mother-in-law & both of the sister-in-laws were very thrilled with tearoom & food... Also I found out information on events that goes on through out the year... A Jackie Kennedy... More

Recently had lunch at Pickwick with a friend and loved it! It was a cold day and the pot of chai tea was perfect. The scones were delicious as was our lunch. The mismatched furniture and place settings added to the quaint ambiance and charm.

We enjoyed delicious tea from a huge selection of varieties, herbal, green, black, oolong, rooibos, etc. In addition, we had delicious tea sandwiches and cookies for dessert. Overall, the experience is a step back in time which is perfect for the old atmosphere of downtown Frankfort.

Enjoyed afternoon tea with a friend at this neat little tearoom. Enjoyed the food and the surroundings. Wonderful service. Little gift shop too and you could purchase the tea. I would go back if I lived in the area. Nice little shops around too - downtown Frankfort seemed like a neat place to go for a days outing.

I order the scones every time I go to the tea room. They are buttery and fabulous, especially paired with clotted cream and raspberry jam. My favorite tea is white ginger peach, which of Octavia's 86 flavors, is ranked #1. Somehow tea tastes better in the tea shop than at home. Must be the cozy traditional atmosphere. Cindy, the owner,... More

The tea room has a lot of antiques and it fits right in with the other shops in downtown Frankfort. The food is OK but I think a bit pricey. My husband and I brought our granddaughters there for a special treat and they enjoyed it. What I did not enjoy was after telling our waitress that we didn't like... More

I had the perfect little lunch! Pot of tea, finger sandwiches, orange scone with real clotted cream, homemade cookies and a mini cupcake. Everything was fresh and top quality and homemade. The flavors were savory and balanced. I am holding back one star because I would have preferred my scone warm, and the teapot was chipped and lacking a cozy... More
