“Wonderful tea experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2008

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, decided we had to visit the Tea Cozy for afternoon tea. We had a lovely experience. It is a very quaint cottage filled with English decorations and goodies. We had the cream tea w/scones and devonshire cream (delicious) and the Duchess tea which came with finger sandwiches as well as a scone. It was all top-notch! After we were done, we bought a boat-load of English goodies to take home to my mother (who is from England). The proprietor was very friendly and attentive as well. A very nice experience.

“Best meal in Cambria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2008

We had the most delicious lunch here. The Chicken Noodle soup was the best I've had. My husband's chicken was so tender and not dry. Fresh garden salads, excellent desserts. This is not just a place for tea --- it's very nice, casual, quiet, and not pretentious, yet serves excellent teas and other foods. Don't think it's for ladies only. You will not be disappointed in the food and friendly service by owners.

“Great little tea room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2006

The food was top quality, my wife and I had the "Royal Tea". It was more than enought for the two of us.
There was 12 mini sandwiches of different types, an assortment of desserts and two scones with English cream and jam.

“authenticity to a tea.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2006

My wife and I have been to several, supposedly, laudable English restaurants and, being English, I have always been disappointed with the results....until now. Perfect tea, perfect service and very well prepared English dishes. We will always return to this restaurant and the wonderful atmosphere it has whenever we visit the area.
