Nice Tea/Scones Lunch

The one and main thing we can say about the Royal Tea Room is besides a large selections of tea is that the croissants are amazing. Also, there is a bit of light antiquing upstairs.

I came here for a Bridal Shower and everything was perfect! We were served 3 courses with complimenting teas in vintage mix-matched plates and tea cups! The crab bisque was amazing, as was the cucumber sandwiches! I will definitely return with my grown daughters!

I took my wife here for her birthday...she'd always wanted to go. I expected a bit of a stereotypical tea party for little girls except for adults. Additionally, I've been inside enough homes built in the era this house was built in that I expected a certain "atmosphere" to the building. On both of these, the setting and the house... More

I enjoy the Royal Tea Room every time I go. If you do not have a taste for tea, the experience might be lost on you. But if you do, RTR is wonderful. Choose your teacup, choose your tea, and enjoy it with traditional honey or sugar cubes. The service is friendly and the menu is interesting and yummy. I... More

My granddaughter and I started going here 7 yrs ago,for a toast of tea to her mommy. We lost her to breast cancer 8 years ago. We are treated with the utmost respect and service. They have the best crab soup and sandwiches around. The chicken salad is delicious, along with the salads and desserts. I recommend this very highly.

I've been here many times and never been disappointed. Food is always fresh and good...sometimes exceptional. So nice to get away from chains for a truly local experience.

I am in love with the tea room. I don't even like tea. The food, the staff, the atmosphere....its all amazing. It is worth every penny we spend there. Be warned- this is not fast food so if you are in a hurry, plan to come another day when you can fully enjoy the experience.

My friend and I decided to do the Afternoon Tea Service at 12:30p This was a nice relaxing way to spend the afternoon and catch up on girl talk. We were given an extensive list of tea flavors and chose the Pumpkin Spice tea. I was a little disappointed that there was only a hint of pumpkin flavor. After adding... More

My wife took me here after church today for lunch and I was totally unprepared for the experience. While its not a guy place; it is an excellent date lunch place, so much more elegant and intimate than going to a chain place like Panera. Great place for a lunch date with your lady! I had the Reuben sandwich with... More

We just happened to get off of this exit when travelling and stopped here for lunch. I had a Monte Cristo sandwich which was spectacular. Overall, we had a delightful lunch though they were a little slow getting the food out but it was hot and fresh when we got it.
