Quite little hide a way

What an adorable little place. We stopped for lunch and dined outside. They have a wonderful menu of salads and sandwiches. The array of teas is also amazing. Next time we will go for a late breakfast, the place is wonderful.

Scones, tea sandwiches and mini sweets are the very best. Tea has definite flavor as listed. However, very tiny, tripped over table legs twice, no a/c,hot and humid. Very little ambience. Staff not dressed in manner of "high tea" which would improve the total experience. Too bad we could not marry food and tea from Robinsons with the ambience of... More

The decor, the ambiance, the friendly staff, the great service and the absolutely delightful owners made it the perfect place for an afternoon cup of tea and cake. It was like being in a Cornish tea shop back home. The table linen, the bone china tea cups, the great selection of teas were just wonderful. They do also serve meals... More

Delicious Ice teas for a hot day! Great sandwiches in typical tea time fashion. Yummy chicken salad and especially decadent scones with real clotted cream and raspberry jam.

I go here frequently. This is a charming place to go for breakfast, lunch or a spot of tea. The only drawback is the place is small so there aren't many seats. That being said, I've never had an excessive wait. They serve so many varieties of loose tea. Everyone I have tried so far is delicious. The cups and... More

The place is small and always has a line to get in, but it moves quick. The food. Top of the line and gourmet style. The restaurant itself is decorated like someone's dining room from the old Victorian days. Great.

I won a gift certificate to this restaurant, so I was excited to see their scones and tea. The atmosphere reminds me of my Mother's dining room. Shelves everywhere with stuff on them, except here I didn't have to clean them. We started off by ordering some Ice Tea. Very flavorful and nice on the warm day. I had chicken... More

Came here with my 3 girls for the British High Tea(made reservations ahead of time, otherwise you will not be served the High tea). It was very cute. Lots of tea to choose from. They each had their own tea pot (apple juice or decaf tea or hot chocolate). They also had scones, with small pastries and peanut butter and... More
