A very special quaint place to have some food. They have good chicken salad. A very unique Buttermilk pie that is worth trying.

The staff and owner are the most amazing people. You feel as though you are family. The food is absolutely delicious. In fact both my husband and I crave the tuna melt on a regular basis. The homemade soups are second to none - not to mention the desserts. A favorite of ours

At first, you walk in and your overwhelmed with 1980's grandmother decor. It is lovely, but I would have liked a more traditional English Tea feel. The service was great and the food was delish, I enjoyed my turkey & bree sandwich. The scone was warm and fresh. Lemon curd and cream was wonderful. Again, the vibe of the tea... More

Nice ladies place. Great food and wonderful selection of teas. Took my young granddaughter there for a special lunch and we had a delightful time. No matter what your age you feel so grown-up.

The atmosphere is interesting and you never know what you might see among all of the nick nacks. The food and teas are amazing and the owner often comes to check on you or refill your drink. I recommend the peach or strawberry tea!

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!
