That's a great Start but the food IS the star of the show. A cup of crab soup is amazing...the flavor is 2nd to none. I love that you pick your own tea cup and saucer. The wait staff are exceptional too.

We have visited many times and enjoy going to have tea during... More

I an stingy in offering 4 stars for restaurants, but would have provided for this place except for one thing, mentioned below. Appetizer of fried pickles and cream of crab soup were both very good. Excellent breading on the pickles. My Reuben sandwich was also very good,... More

I love everything about this place. Food is always wonderful! They have the best cream of crab soup ever. Just a darling quaint place, and I always have a great time there. Such an asset for La Plata.

My wife and I wanted to find a nice place for my daughter's baby shower. We rented the Royalty Tea Room this May and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the service was fast and courteous.

They had fun practicing their etiquette skills and everyone enjoyed the delicious homemade sandwiches and pastries. The mothers who accompanied us enjoyed the assortment of of teas and the variety of luncheon options.... More

Eight ladies met at the tea room for a bridal lunch. So nice and quiet, and cozy. Service was good. Food was very good, w very generous portions. It is always fun to choose your tea cup! And a little shopping upstairs afterward is a treat as well.
