Lovely English tea in cozy, charming "Middle Eastern" setting

In a charming little tea room with a "tented" ceiling, we looked over the menu with pages of different teas, and Middle Eastern dishes, we chose from the menu page that offered a 3-tiered English tray of tea foods, including little tea sandwiches (no crust bread - cucumber&cream cheese and 3 other... read more

I was excited to find afternoon tea being offered in Shepherdstown. I went with two friends, and we found that not only were the food and tea delicious, but that, unlike many tea rooms, Shaharazade's offered a variety of sandwiches and scones from which to choose. The day we were there we were offered eggnog and pumpkin scones, both of... More

A wonderfully eccentric ambiance welcomes all to Shaharazade"s. Eastern and Western curio items decorated with care and attention.The tea and scones and soup were delicious. Looking Forward to a Return Visit.

Very good vegetarian themed menu, excellent choices and delicious teas- a huge selection steeped at the table. I loved our experiences there we are always made to feel special. It can be very cozy and is a great destination for tea and light fare especially in the Winter. The Mediterranian décor is wonderful.

My hibiscus tea was great, but that was the only nice thing about this place. I ordered the fruit and cheese plate priced at $12 and was greatly disappointed when I received blocks of cheddar, Colby jack, small amount of Brie, 3 strawberries, and some grapes. Cheddar and Colby jack do not belong on a $12 plate! The cheese was... More

My wife and I and another couple spent three days in Shepherdstown, West Virginia for the Contemporary American Theater Festival. We were fortunate to try this fabulous little restaurant for dinner one evening. The food was among the best we've experienced in a long time. We liked it so much that we came back for breakfast the next morning, with... More

Felt like I I was in a foreign country when I entered this lovely place with a Middle Eastern touch. The tea was fresh and the scones were delicious!

In planning my daughter's bridal shower - I decided to do a *tea*. With no assurance that I would actually be a customer, the proprietor, Lisa provided helpful and thorough information to me about the selection of teas. When I went in to the tearoom a few days later to make my selections, she was more than helpful in explaining... More

This was our second time visiting this tea room, scones and french press are out of this world. The entrees are very nice. Such fresh food and placed very nicely on our plates. We wanted to take pictures of it! The couscous is the best we have ever had. The owner is very welcoming and accomodating.

This restaurant was busy on the Sunday a friend and I visited. The young server looked a bit overwhelmed but did a great job. Everything was on time and presented nicely. She checked on us several times and overall did a great job as the only server on a busy day. The food was also portioned well and tasty. There... More
