Charming, great service and wonderful offerings from high tea, to luncheons to garden parties to special events to fundraising. Even my very English mother-in-law loved The Spicery. The multi-room ambiance is filled with wonderful decorative vignettes. The staff is amazing, the food is mouth watering and after one visit you will return again and again.

Where to begin heaping praise on this little gem in Glendale? The quaint house and charming dining rooms? The lovable staff? The talented cooks? The homemade yeast rolls? The addictive chicken salad? The fact that it is open only 4 hours a day? The sparkling clean everything? Be sure to reserve in advance. The Spicery is a not a secret!

This restaurant is always met with enthusiasm when planning an outing, whether for a couple or group. It's ambiance always evokes conversation and delight. As a patron who visits a couple times a year for special occasions, (Mind you, I'd love to visit more often, but it's a bit of a drive. Prices are very reasonable.) None of us have... More

**TIP** This place has very limited hours - check their website and make reservations where possible! We stopped in to The Spicery for lunch today, and I was pleasantly surprised. When I hear 'tea house' I sort of picture a stuffy, girly, frilly place for old ladies and funny hats and little girls playing dress-up. This place was definitely not... More

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, he's always wanted to try a traditional afternoon tea. This was the first one that showed when I typed in "best place for tea in Phoenix". I can honestly say that this place lives up to it's potential. The place itself is a little difficult to find, but the staff was very... More

The house has history. My friend knew two of the boys who grew up there and it was a delight to hear about the family and their place in Glendale's early days. The current owner is familiar with the family and the home's history as it changed hands. The one son used to return to eat here and always wanted... More

Attended the "Lost in Wonderland" tea party with my granddaughters, ages 15 and 9. We love The Spicery for our "girls dates." We so very much enjoy the Victorian house and its decorations, which lend to the feeling of we are here for something special. The tea itself was so very well done, with every detail, hearts and spades picks... More
