Excellent place to enjoy lunch and a cup of tea. Beautiful views of the bay. The restaurant is nicely decorated with real china to enjoy your tea. Service is very good.

The charm of the room, friendly staff and consistently great food make this my favorite restaurant. High Tea is one of my go-to standards($23, are you kidding, paid 69 in Victoria) and Prime Rib for dinner always great.

Thanks for visiting us at the tea shop. I am disappointed that we failed to meet your expectations. However just to clarify the scone comment. I believe you may be referring to High Tea which indeed is not served until 2.00 pm. This takes longer...More

Obviously great food and nice tea room atmosphere but very expensive in my opinion for what you get.

The food is generally very good, especially the desserts, though some of the specials can be repetitive. There is a wide variety of teas available. The atmosphere is pleasant except for busy times when it can get very loud. My main complaint would be the...More

We are an English tea shop situated on Muskoka Wharf with a wonderful view of Lake Muskoka - right by the famous Steamships. We offer a variety of lunches including quiches, beef stew in a Yorkshire pudding, chicken pot pie, ploughmans lunch with English cheeses and of course sandwiches. Our most popular being the grilled brie and cranberry. We also offer an Afternoon Tea served on a two plated tier or High Tea served on a 3 plated tier. Details of our full menu can be found on the website. We serve wine and beer in the restaurant but not on the patio.
