Great light lunch place

My husband and I stopped here for a light lunch while driving around the area. We found it just perfect. We had soup, tea and scones and enjoyed all three. Loved the wide selection of teas and the selection of light fare. I will be back. Can't wait to take our visitors.

This is the perfect place to relax. They don't rush you out at all! You could sit there for hours and they don't mind. I disagree the service was incredible, possibly because I went on a Sunday and it wasn't that busy. Such a wide variety of teas to choose from and the soups are delicious. I had loaded potato...

This is my new favorite place. I first visited a few weeks ago and was willing to make the 35 mile trip back there. It's quaint, cozy atmosphere is relaxing. I had the loaded potato soup which was simply delicious. It was so filling that I got a second lunch out of it. A great value for under $10 (for... More

Despite the quaint appearance of this roadside restaurant, and its wide variety of teas, the level of service is absurdly poor. We saw our waitress so infrequently over the nearly two hours that we were held captive that at times we became concerned that she had simply gone home for the day. And when one considers that the establishment has... More

I'd been to Tea Time Cottage for a snack, but never for a meal. It's tiny, but there are tables outside where you can sit and enjoy your sandwich and flavored iced tea. The roast beef wrap with garlic ailoi was delicious. We also had a cup of the steak and ale soup, which was thick, creamy and full of... More

I disagree about the service. I've been here with friends several times and we've always had pretty good service. I guess they don't rush you out and people are not used to that. I love their soups and sandwiches. Very tasty, very cute place. A good place to stop before drinking wine!

Preveous reveiws indicated and I agree that the although the food is very good, waiting for it takes out the enjoyment of eating it. We waited 5 min for the waitress to hand us a menu then 20 min for our order to come. And this was for a pot of tea, cup of soup, and a simple sandwich.. We... More

I have gone to Tea Time Cottage many times since I live on Long Island. I first discovered it a couple years ago and it didn't really grow on me until Natasha came--she's like the manager of a small, 3-man operation. The owners live behind the property, and I've seen them come in to check on things occassionally, but they... More
