We have been here twice. The first visit was pleasant the waitress was great (even though the owner was constantly on her about our table.. Seems we asked for things out of order?) The iced tea was wonderful. We had desert and more tea. On the whole a nice experience. Our most recent visit was very different..30 days apart. We... More

I had lunch at White Lions Tea House recently and have no complaints. The server was knowledgeable and great to deal with. The food was excellent and homemade. I have a gluten intolerance and for those that cannot eat gluten you know how hard it is to find a good restaurant that offers lots of gluten choices. Often times you... More

I have been to the tea room several times with different friends. The service has always been good, the staff most pleasant & helpful & the food has been delightful. If you go in the summer-I suggest you order the Strawberry-Kiwi Iced Tea. It is extremely refreshing and tastes as good as it looks. The scones are little morsels of... More

I found out about this place about a year ago. After reading some reviews on Trip Advisor, I was afraid to try it. However, last week my wife and I decided to take a chance and go in for lunch. What a PLEASANT surprise. We loved it! The delightful staff and great food was not at all what I had... More

Decor is genteel - mint green and florals. Art by local art club is focal point of walls. Large selection of quality teas served in china cups. Lunches and treats leave something to be desired. Baked goods never seem to be all that fresh and are skimpy in size and flavour. Something your miserly maiden aunt might serve because she... More

I frequent the White Lion Teahouse and am never disappointed. Laurie takes the time to be sure to avoid food sensitivities and offers many gluten free options. The food is delicious and she has a wide selection of teas. It's a great place for lunch with friends, or a networking tea. Her lunch specials are fantastic! Misty in the kitchen... More

Love this little tea house! Great selection of loose leaf teas, and nice home baking and I love the soup and sandwich combo. Would recommend this place for the ladies :)

Met with some lovely, easy going friends here to celebrate a birthday on Saturday morning, with reservations made well in advance. The owner was very upset to see me come in because she had not set enough places at the table and had to get an extra chair. I didn't want to upset the party, and was made to feel... More

I attended a birthday tea given by a friend who invited about 12 of us to be part of this celebration. The owner had baked only 10 scones that morning (only 10 on Easter weekend??) - a mix up maybe in the numbers attending and the owner was very upset that 2 more were there. The owner was also upset... More

Description
This teahouse opened several months ago and the lady owner has completely renovated the old restaurant site and made it completely bright inside, and very attractive overall. The food consists of soups, salads, numerous types of sandwiches, plus a hot entree each day, and of course numerous teas, and other drinks, plus home made desserts. Food is extremely good
