Enjoyable lunch at Calico Rose Cafe. My friend and I stopped while in the area and had a very nice time. We both ordered the Chicken Salad which was delicious. I had a salad with my sandwich which was good and my friend had mushroom soup that she liked. I would definitely recommend this cafe. The only downside was that... More

Located in large Victorian house with many gift rooms, Calico Rose offers a varied menu selection. One might call it a tea room but coffee is served as well as other offerings. Casual dining, no rush, sit and relax with good food.

We stopped in for late lunch and dessert and were thrilled with everything at this unique place. For the same price of a mediocre sandwich at the hotel we got a soup, salad,and quiche meal where each was excellent - by any standard. For dessert we had carrot cake and peach cobbler which were fantastic. Everything was fresh and tasty... More

One of the best places for friends to gather. The food is great, the owner and staff are wonderful, and the total experience is relaxing. There's never any rush to get through your meal. A very extensive menu. Lots of teas to choose from. Although it seems like a "girl place", there are often men with their wives for weekend... More

A great place for a bridal shower. Our waitress Kim was really attentive, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was cute. Perfect for a group of women to get together and gossip and gab at!!! Also, the shopping was a lot of fun. They had lots of interesting and quirky crafty things for sale. It never got boring! And... More

I drive an hour to have birthday tea at Calico Rose Café each year... and for my friends' birthdays, too... because it is an easy, pretty, interesting destination. The combination of a tea room, gift shop and consignment store may seem a little odd, but I always seem to find something to take home!

I should mention that I love tearooms and stop at them whenever I come across one. The Calico Rose Cafe is in a shop, and has a consignment shop behind it as well. The shops were enjoyable and I found items to purchase at both. Keep in mind that a lot of the merchandise is upstairs, so my mom who... More

The Calico Rose is a charming country tea house that gives guests a chance to catch up and enjoy some quality time together over tea. I have been a customer at the Calico for several years. The food is made fresh each day and the diversity in the tea menu offers customers many options.
