The waitress asked if we wanted to sample their flavored teas. the menu was very interesting and selections were... read more

Inventive and ingenius variations on afternoon tea without being too over the top or un-tea like! had iced tea and it was delicious, the champagne strawberry, i believe! the sandwiches were lovely too and though i did not enjoy the lemon and ginger scones as much as the cinnamon ones, they were still super tasty! service was lovely and personal...

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

First visit to this sweet tearoom and right around the corner(so to speak)..Dawn was very helpful with the selecting of the teas.. almost too many smell & choose from.. 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.
