Laurie and her staff see to it that your experience will exceed your expectations. Food and teas are awesome. This may be the only spot in Florence to pick up a fresh scone. Weekly luncheon specials change weekly. Regular menu available. Group teas by reservation. Outside dining area during season.

Atmosphere, ALL food and teas are beyond delish! Sweet iced strawberry tea is perfect. Also have had hot raspberry tea which is amazing. Owner and staff are the best! Don't miss a chance to have a meal or just a scone and tea at this wonderful restaurant. You won't regret it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tea and scones & buttermilk pie. Very quaint but the service was a bit slow.

My husband and I were traveling from Myrtle Beach, SC, back home to Atlanta and decided to look for a tea room on our route. When we read all of the reviews for Top Hat we were certain that this was THE place to stop. The experience that we had with both food and service was phenomenal. We travel quite... More

The sites states that they are open on Saturdays from 11 to 5. Came to town to take my daughters and God daughters and they had a private party sign on the door. Apparently, they are open on Saturdays by appointments only! My girls were very disappointed.

We enjoy going there every 2 weeks or so. I really enjoy the wait staff and the food. They have specials every week which are always good. They have a large choice of teas for you to pick from. The wait staff is small but gives you excellent service. They can host "Young Ladies" teas next door where they have... More

I was introduced to Top Hat Teas several years ago and have been going back ever since. As soon as you walk in the door, you get that warm feeling you had when you visited your grandmother on a Saturday afternoon. The decor is unique with every inch filled with tea pots/cups. The food is yummy - everything from salads,... More
