Taste of Britain is a tucked away spot in the Eagle Shoopes (Wayne) that is what it says: A Taste of Britain. Very good food and a laid-back atmosphere defines this restaurant. Sadly, the noise level at most times is close to unbearable.

A Taste of Britain is a lovely, little tea shop in Wayne, PA. Wide selection of trendy teas, along with tasty soups, salads, sandwiches, and sweets. They offer afternoon tea and have British snacks and tea-related items for sale. Parking is easy (and free). Nice boutiques nearby for window shopping afterward. We enjoyed late afternoon tea-cum-supper when traveling in the... More

I shop at Taste of Britain often. As an ex-pat I am like a kid in a candy store (literally) in here as I stock up on (decent) chocolate, sausage rolls, pork pies and biscuits (not cookies). My only gripe is the cost. Its very expensive. For Easter I bought four chocolate eggs and coincidentally three of them were the... More

Had been a while since last lunch at A Taste of Britain. The spinach salad was a very small portion. My sister said her sandwich was "okay, nothing special." The pots of loose leaf tea were pleasant but barely yielded a cup and a half each. The bread pudding was quite nice, warm and not too sweet, accompanied by fresh... More

This place is a gem. The food is very good and the menu changes slightly every so often. They have many many selections of teas to choose from, and you can buy any of them to go (tea leaves...) they also have a nice selection of items to take home, from speciality food items, tea pots and spoons, and lots...

Had a lovely and peaceful lunch here. Typical tea house with tea sandwiches. Loved them. I would say that this place is for women only, unless a gentleman likes ladylike food.

Want something different? Don't hesitate to try A Taste of Britain. Here they take their tea seriously - many selections can be had including black teas, white teas, green teas, and herbal teas as well as seasonal offerings. But this is also a fun place to have a lunch with enough choices to make it difficult to decide. They have... More

Service was good, sandwiches were great. Scones were very dry, that was disappointing. Very nice atmosphere, very noisy, Went with a group for lunch and we were not rushed at all even though there were ladies waiting for a table.

As a Brit living part-time in the US it's a breath of fresh air to find a place that does 'proper' English tea rather than the watery Liptons you are usually served here. Lovely little restaurant/tea house, decorated in British style with chairs and tables rather than squishy sofas you can't get up from and a good range of British... More

Stopped by with a friend for "tea for two." It was crowded so make a reservation. The tea was served properly; loose leaf, strainer, china pot, cup, saucer, the works! It was excellent and the service was good. So, why not 5 stars? It was uncomfortable. I think tea houses should have at least a few cozy chairs and seating... More
