The Abbey Garden is a tiny place accessed from an alley near Skylark's restaurant in downtown Fairhaven. Open from 11 - 5, the Abbey is for "ladies who lunch" and those who gather for mid-afternoon goodies. It is cozily decorated with fine bone china mounted on the walls along with old-time prints of London. I've been to high tea at... More

This cozy restaurant is in the walk-in basement of the neat fired-art studio CreativiTea, where kids and adults alike can create their painted or fused masterpieces. The restaurant downstairs serves a multitude of teas and is well regarded for its scones and tea sandwiches. Their menu and especially the combinations including soups, quiches etc is surprisingly extensive and caters from... More

Abbey Garden Tea Room serves the best scones in Bellingham. I simply will not eat anyone else's scones (except mine). This is a wonderful little spot in the Fairhaven district to sit, relax, and catch up with a friend. There are several options for "tea" and the menu offers traditional lunch fare such as soup or quiche. Don't miss this... More

It's not the Empress but it serves wonderful tea and more. The sandwiches and scones are delicious and the service is prompt. An excellent alternative to the "usual" restaurant fare.

This little restaurant in downtown Fairhaven is wonderful. The home made soups and sandwiches are good, but the scones with clotted cream and jam are fabulous. I took two young granddaughtrs and they assue me that the cocoa with lots of whipped cream is awesome. We have been several times and always pleased. Service is friendly. If one has time,... More

We stumbled onto this beautiful little tea room right in the middle of Fairhaven, Bellingham, WA. The top floor is a ceramic workshop and the reason for our visit, but then we saw that stairs lead down to a quaint tea room. It was enjoyable to relax in comfortable surroundings and sip a cuppa. We have returned many times.
