We stopped in when we first arrived in Savannah and needed a snack--but enjoyed a full afternoon tea instead! The food was very tasty and the service excellent. While we might not have needed as much food as included in the full tea, we were happy to have found this lovely place and to have experienced it and these delicious... More

Quality high tea. There were only 2 types of sandwiches, but a large assortment of sweets. There were scones with cream and jam. We had three different teas and all were excellent. And the ambience is amazing. Tiffany glass, historic fixtures, and artfully arranged books make it feel like you've been invited into an Ivy League library.

Love this place! The books are a perfect touch! The menu could use more variety but place is great way to start the trip. The tenderloin was great and so was the lemonades.

We returned to this cozy little tea room across from the beautiful Madison Square in Savannah for a delightful lunch. My wife had traditional tea sandwiches and desserts. She especially loved the apricot squares. I enjoyed an unusual club sandwich with smoked salmon, bacon and avocado. The decor is patterned after an old library. Definitely a must when you visit...

Beautiful restored apothecary, in the heart of Savannah, enjoy their afternoon tea with all the fixings, not to mention in a gem of a place. Tiffany lights, old stain glass windows and a grand piano that plays old tunes.

My wife and I stopped here the day we were leaving to go home. The atmosphere is fantastic. Out only complaint was that the piano was a little too loud for our taste. But it felt that we went back in time and the staff was excellent. Definitely will visit again when we come to Savannah aka our 2nd home.

Walking around Savannah, found this small tea room across from Madison Square an the Savannah College of Art and Design. They have around 6 tables outside that are great for a meal outside. The fig sandwich and the chicken bbq salad were excellent. If you have a chance stop by and enjoy a relaxing lunch.

Beautiful tea room in downtown Savannah affiliated with Savannah College of Art and Design. The ambience of the room, an old pharmacy, is enchanting and the food is delicious. Service might be a little slow, but it's run by students from SCAD, whose eagerness makes up for it. Definitely worth a visit!

What an experience! We all thoroughly enjoyed stopping in, taking in the Tiffany glass ceiling and ambience of the old apothecary, now library feel of the tea house. Sit down and enjoy the piano music and take a load off. We sipped through our pot of Earl Gray tea while munching a plate of tea sweets. Try this for a... More
