I have a great friend who lives in the area, and this is our new tradition that whenever I visit. The Ultimate Tea includes a pot of... More

Took my mother-in-law here for a surprise afternoon lunch and it was delightful. Lovely cozy tea room in the heart of Calabash, just a short drive from Myrtle Beach and Conway. We enjoyed the Ultimate Tea which included small salad, five different types of mini sandwiches, pumpkin scones, chocolate dipped strawberries, fruit drizzled with white chocolate, and mini pumpkin cupcakes...

I went to the Calabash Garden Tea Room for the first time. I scheduled some "me" time for the day and included the Tea Room in part of it. I had secured my reservation a few weeks in advance, explaining that I would just be there by myself to relax, enjoy the "ultimate tea", while reading a book. First of... More

Cutest little place, some of the best customer service ever! I had brunch with a family friend here and I couldn't have been more please. The food was wonderful. This little place is absolutely adorable, if you haven't visited yet I suggest you do.

I'm not a tea person exactly and I was not crazy about the teas we had. I'm not sure which menu items we had but all the items were good. The decor is nice. The staff is friendly. They're are hats and boas to wear there. I think some of these could be updated. My daughter was given a choice... More

Small quaint and first class tea room in Calabash NC. Kathy the owner prepares all the food and only uses the best ingredients. Her Tea menu choices are extensive and her Tomatoe bisque soup which is homemade is to die for. Clean and well-maintained with friendly and knowledgable staff. Go in the bathroom and put on your choice of hats... More

This was our 3rd visit to the tea room and it was delightful as always. One of the members of our party has food aversions due to chemo and they were wonderful about working with us to make sure all the sandwiches were something everyone would enjoy.

My first trip to Calabash was two years ago and I visited the tea room with my daughter. The décor is so quaint that you feel like you have stepped back in time. The entire "tea experience" was magical, from your first sip of tea to your last bite of a scrumptious dessert. The owner and her staff made us... More
