Just got home from a lovely luncheon tea with friends and everything was wonderful. The solo waitress did an excellent job navigating the different tables and checked in often to see how we were doing. The meal was good, especially the scones. The chocolate chip scones are the BEST! The extensive tea selction made a decision difficult but the waitress... More

If you are looking to do just a little something different with your daughter, mother, grandmother, aunt or special woman friend in your life, this converted farm house - turned tea parlor is just the place. Upon entering, there is a little shop that sells teas, giftware, etc., and then you are led thru to the quaint living room/dining room... More

I have been here many times with friends and am surprised by some of the negative reviews I've seen on Trip Advisor about this restaurant. I wouldn't advise going there with a party of 9 like those who gave it a poor review did. It is a small intimate tea room not suited well for such large groups. The food... More

This place has so much potential, it is a lovely environment, wonderful tea selection, and good food. But the service leaves so much to be desired. We had a reservation and there were 9 of us, 3 of which were children. We literally sat for at least 15 or 20 minutes without anyone greeting us- we were pointed to our... More

Our party of 9 made reservations for 1.30 in advance of our Friday afternoon tea. We arrived early and the staff said they had to reset our table. We shopped at the antique store until our reservation and went back. We told the cashier we were there, she said our table was ready, menus were on the table. We asked... More

Great location and they do take reservations. Standard tea fare and food is simple but good. Great selection of loose tea. Great old building adds to the charm and they do have a nice gift shop.

Make sure to make a reservation. The tea house is small. My friend and I went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. She ordered the afternoon tea and I ordered the lighter lunch so we could share. They both came with scones, a huge pot of tea and dessert. Hers came with petite sandwiches and mine came with cheese and... More

The Talking Teacup is my destination of choice for a cup of tea. The charming decor and ample tea menu make it the perfect place for first time tea drinkers and avid "tea-ers" alike. As a popular local spot, the Teacup can fill up quickly, so recommendations are highly recommended. Also, consider going on a weekday. The Teacup offers a... More

If you want to ever experience a high tea without going into a fancy restaurant this is the place. I have gone here multiple times with girlfriends and once even with my husband. It is not inexpensive but the food items are delicious. The decor is very cottage victorian and appealing. If I remember right, you should call first and... More

This recent visit is at least my 5th time to the TT. Sad to see tough reviews as I have always had a nice time. Seating is close and understand that with every seat filled, things might get louder than desired but never found this a stumbling block. My first time there, I was smitten! Quaint, china laden, surroundings. Loved... More
