I hadn't realized how weak and tasteless most restaurant teas are until I drank tea here. I found it hard choosing among the iced teas, so they let me taste both before making a choice. It was so delicious and refreshing. I just walked in and took my tea to the park, so did not taste any food. But the... More

Today I enjoyed an afternoon tea at the tea room. The tea, food and service were all exceptional. Owner, Pat, is such a great hostess and took time to make us feel welcomed and special. I can't think of a more pleasant place to spend an afternoon.

My wife and I stopped by here for tea on a Saturday morning and loved this place. My wife is a big tea drinker who doesn't go for the trendy herbal and floral teas that tend to get more attention in the U.S. This was one of the best cups of tea she's had and mine was excellent as well.... More

The London Tea Room is a great place for a cup of tea and a scone. Great atmosphere. I selected Naughty Vicar tea just because of the name; loved it.

I went here for the first time after driving by daily since the tea room opened here in Tower Grove, and wish I had stopped in sooner. The girls and guys working were so friendly, and the tea is served in your own little pot to your table. I really liked the mango pear tea. I had a macaroon (salted... More

Glad we read other Trip Advisor reviews and visited this cozy tea room. Originally, we went downtown to look for the tea room and learned it moved to a neighborhood location. Check before going. The Naughty Vicar's tea was a flavored black tea delight. My son and I thought the tomato soup was excellent. This tea room has a cafe... More

The term tea room, in my experience, has come to mean a little place where ladies lunch surrounded by doilies. The name having nothing related to the drinks that they serve. The London Tea Room is not one of these. Here they actually focus on tea. A wide variety of loose teas you can drink there or take it to... More

Decided to stop her (some ex-pats with us) trying to impress. Excellent sandwiches, salads, scones, gluten free goodies -- oh yeah and they have tea. Very delightful owner serving us. Extremely relaxing tea/lunch. Highly recommend.

We missed the opportunity to go to the London Tea Room on our first day in St. Louis because we hadn't checked the opening time. So, we made a very special effort to get there the next day before they closed, just to enjoy at pot of tea. It was worth the trip. We were served a properly heated pot... More

They are very close to the City Museum, so if you are planning to go there it is a great time to go here as well. Our waitress was very friendly, but the service was a little slow. I would also recommend going right when they start serving lunch. We arrived later, and they were out of some things. My... More
