“Great selection of teas, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I took my mom here for an traditional afternoon tea. The selection of teas was impressive. The food was great! There was enough to make you full without being stuffed. The sandwiches were delicate and delicious. The baked goods were incredible! Loved the scones! They were warm and soft and flavorful. I tried the pineapple curd topping. That was perfect! Very subtle flavor that didn't overpower the flavor of the baked goods. The service was also outstanding. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend this tearoom.

“Tea Time !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

The tea house is very clean with special tea cups and a large variety of teas. It is a great place to take your daughter or grandma for a high tea they will love it

“Great Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I've been to the Serenity Tea Room twice and have had a wonderful experience both times. The first time was just with family, but we were treated like VIP customers. I had such a great time that when my aunt asked where I wanted to have my bridal shower, I immediately suggested Serenity Tea Room. All the guests enjoyed themselves (even my brother), and thanks to the wonderful atmosphere created by the staff it's a memory I will cherish forever.
The best thing about the Serenity Tea Room is you don't have to make a reservation just to enjoy the tea. You can stop in anytime to buy some of the many delicious flavors. (They make great gifts!) I bought two ounces of three different teas, and I know I'll be back for more.

“Blanche and her staff are wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The tea room is in an old home that has been renovated for use as the restaurant. The offerings are fairly standard tea sandwiches and sweets, presented in the standard way. All are prepared with loving care and the fillings/specifics change daily and with the season.

The facilities are a little worn around the edges, the hallway decorative painting, the most updated and attractive part of the renovation, but the room is quaint, well appointed and welcoming. You don't come here for the facilities.

You come here to be treated by Blanche and her attentive staff. Blanche's passion for her business, her food and your enjoyment are evident even before you get to the Tea Room. She is engaging and genuinely interested in making a connection with each guest. It is perfect for an all ages event and is not at all stuffy (which some tea rooms can be).

We had a lovely visit and would return when in Frederick again.

PS-Blanche's egg salad is the best I've ever eaten...and until the other day, my mom's party egg salad (also made with butter/cream) held that title...don't tell her!
