Step back in time and have a cup of tea.

Yes, it's not in a "good" location of town. But it sure is fun to walk in and have "teatime". Yes, it's a limited menu; however what they fix is good and presented on beautiful china in a great atmosphere. Great for small gatherings and just getting out with the girlfriends.

Needed to find lunch before a business meeting and happened upon Gothic Tea House for a pleasant surprise. An old, Gothic style house, redecorated as a lovely tea room down to cloth napkins and lace curtains. From the light, freshly-baked scones with lemon curd, to the delicious lunches we enjoyed, this stop was a nice highlight. He had the roast... More

The quiche is fabulous and the teas will convert anyone who is a coffee lover. The decor is like going back in time. It is the most inviting and relaxing eatery that I have ever visited. The food, service and surroundings are wonderful. The scones are some of the best that I've eaten.

My husband and I regularly enjoy lunch here, especially the covered back porch and courtyard when weather permits. Our favorite meal is the crustless quiche, soup and salad. This month we scheduled a family birthday party for my Grandpa at Gothic Tea House with over 20 people. Pat (the owner) was very accommodating. The food was delicious and the atmosphere... More

We and reservations for 21 and they were very accommodating, served excellent food at a great value, and made the visit special. They provided a birthday cake for dessert, and offered the large variety of teas and beverages along with a nice choice of lunch entries.

Good service, delicious food, and unique atmosphere are all reasons to give the Gothic house a try. In warm weather the back porch tables provide a great atmosphere overlooking the beautiful garden. The scones served with lemon curd are a signature treat, along with many choices of tea. The menu is always good.

While visiting my niece, we went to The Gothic Tea House! Setting is adorable & a beautiful view of the gardens if you wish to dine outside. The selection of iced teas are delicious & out of the norm. Food was presently well on china plates and the scones w/lemon curd that is a "gift" to you from the owner... More

We ate a late lunch on the deck overlooking the scenic garden which made up the side and back yard. The food was very tasty, and obviously prepared and then served with enthusiasm and concern for the guest's experience. We had a very nice scone each to start our meal and finished with an excellent homemade cheesecake. This is in... More
