Ordered soup ,salad and onion soup. The service was very slow. Sat there a while before being approached. Server was friendly and knowledge about the menu. After we ordered,we waited almost 45 minutes to,receive our meal. Overpriced as well. Will not return

Our waitress was so good...she walked us through all the choices on the menu and helped us pick the perfect meal. We just wished we were hungrier so we could have tasted one of the scones for dessert!

I will start be saying that I was sure I submitted a review for this fine place last year. But alas, it looks like it was stuck in draft for the past year. The wife and I went there last year on June 15th, 2015 the day before our 31st anniversary. We had made reservations and the young lady failed... More

Cute decorations, friendly folks working there, and good nibbles to be had for a between meal enjoyment. Really cozy when it is raining outside (our circumstances) and just a fun place to drop in on.

Charming tea house with wonderful selection of teas and good prices. Located just off Main Street through town, which makes parking easier and your visit less hectic without the big crowd.

We chose the full tea and sandwich menu which far exceeded our expectations. The service was exquisite and the food was not only wonderful, but beautifully presented. Not to miss.

I had not been to the Tea Cottage for 10 years but found it to be just as wonderful as I remember it to be! I went with a good friend whom I have known for 40 years and we had their afternoon tea for two. Sandwiches were great, scones to die for, and the tea was really good. I... More

My friends and I came to town and looked up places to try and thought - perfect! We decided on "The Cottage Classic" ($24.95). It comes with a cup of pumpkin soup (not vegetarian) with cheese savory, 5 finger sandwiches, scone with whipped cream, homemade lemon curd and jam, dessert and tea. Do ask about the soup, it is NOT... More

When I was researching a day trip to Julian, Ca., I was totally surprised that they had a Tea Room there, I just had to make reservations. I'm so glad I did. :) We like to think we are aficionados of Afternoon Tea (being Brits and all) So, at first I was a little disappointed that we were not going... More
