Charming place for tea and scones. They are the real deal w/several varities of scones as well as the traditional clotted cream and jam. Terrific selection of loose teas and nice variety of sandwiches and lunch selections. Only drawbacks are the long wait at times and the possibility you may be one of the 3 tables smack dab in front... More

Such a cute little tea shop! Went here with my tea-enthusiast fiancé and he had nothing but good things to say. We loved it so much we went back two days after we first visited! If you haven't been here before, you should definitely go. The staff are so friendly. Good price for a fancy and delicious tea/lunch! We recommend... More

A small intimate tea room with a European flavor. Pages of loose teas to savor and purchase plus homemade scones. High tea service by appointment is not disappointing and will please almost all tastes. Staff is knowledgeable about teas the stock and serve.

When I want to share a special moment with family/friends I always visit this tea room. Nice menu selection. It's a small restaurant and I noticed you can sit outside on the lawn. Service is good, but when busy you don't get the same attention. It's in a quaint shopping center near Three Village Inn and park.

I recently enjoyed a nice afternoon tea here with five friends from my book club. We all chose different teas (so many choices) and all of us enjoyed our choices from the extensive list. The meal was served on three-tier trays - scones on the first (raisin and cinnamon) with clotted cream and jam, small sandwiches on the second (shrimp... More

Robinson's Tea Room is a nice spot that has a amazing selection of delicious teas. I mean, if you like teas, then this is the place for you! Yummy scones!!! The butterscotch pecan scone and the raisin scone, both served warm with cream and jam and wow were they delicious. The place is a bit on the small side, and... More

Have had lunch here on several occasions and it never disappoints. The owners and staff are so pleasant and the food never disappoints. In fact, my son planned his prom invite around this restaurant and they were so helpful with orchestrating the whole thing. They have a great selection of teas and the best, best scones with creamed butter but... More

I've never been moved to write a review before this afternoon. While I travel and dine with great enjoyment wherever I go, my visit to Robinson's Tea Room today was such a memorable experience that I just had to say a few words. The atmosphere was beyond cozy and comfortable and charming...very casual and understated, but with lots of character.... More

Not only is the place covered with dust, the servers are also filthy. The board of health should really look into this place. Our server was in what seemed like dirty clothes and then when our table was cleared, the person looked like he just finished changing the oil from under his car. We took our food to go and... More

If you like scones and all sorts of teas, then this is the place for you. Although they do have a great menu for lunch foods too. Lovely atmosphere, attentive waitress. On the small side, a little cramped but overall very nice experience.
