Tucked in at the back of the Irish Shop on Queen St. in Niagara-on-the-Lake, this little gem could easily be missed. A quaint little tea room where one can enjoy a pot tea with a scone, butter and jam, or carrot cake or hot soup! A place to sit down for a moment amidst endless possibilities for shopping. The food... More

The lunchroom in the Irish Linen store is a modest space, but the food is homemade and excellent. Quiches, salads, and Irish fare, and the best Empire cookies in town (moist and delicious). My sister and I always make a point of eating there during a visit to NOTL. After or before lunch, you can shop for beautiful Irish sweaters... More

This tea room is located at the back of the Irish Design store. It offers Irish based menu items like Quiche, chicken & leek pie, cottage pie and Guinness Steak Pie to name a few. The food is excellent and well worth a visit.

Go in and enjoy some Irish coffee while you still can. The Sheppard pie was wonderful, too bad we were in a rush and didn't have time for dessert.

This is one little place that you don't want to overlook although it is hidden in the back of a clothing shop. The tea room offers Irish pastries and savoury pies. Particularly excellent if you are looking for gluten-free or vegan dishes. I have heard the soups are excellent.

We didn't have a chance to eat there on this visit, as the restaurant was very crowded, and many people were waiting. So I bought a bag of scone mix, which I baked up just after we got home. Absolutely delicious! Texture was perfect, and they didn't have that artificial taste that so many packaged mixes have. I should have... More

Banoffee pie was awesome - shame that the owner is retiring and tea room is going to become part of the store

I like to visit the Irish Tea Room at least once during my annual visit to Niagara on the Lake. This is where I can have the causal meal in the kind of tearoom that is more common in Ireland or England without the fuss and frou-frou of upscale afternoon tea decor (and prices). Their sandwiches and desserts are great... More
