We had a group of 10 meet for a friends birthday celebration. They took care of us and the sandwiches and tea were spot on. Tea was delivered not as hot as I prefer. The owner made it a point to come over and chat with us and give a brief history of the home. Quite interesting. Will go again.

Quint a friendly restaurant set in an old home. Food is good and simplistic and the atmosphere makes up for the cooking. Fair prices and a nice place to visit. Parking is on the street and can be difficult to find.

The home in which Tea for Two sits has a small detail but nothing of real interest. Greater by owner who also offers a tour. Nice to visit only 1 time because you have rules. Paper napkin for your mouth, linen napkin for the lap. You should speak softly. Small menu with a higher than should be price.

The house is lovely...Tea is wonderful....the food is seems store bought and not very creative. I have been there a few times over the last few years and the menu never changes.

The food was minimal for, at the time, $26 per person. Many in our group found their tea poorly prepared. Our questions elicited snappy, rude responses. The place is overpriced and pretentious. All ten of us agreed, never again!

My friends & I went to Tea for Two as a precursor visit to the one our church will go on later this year. It was lovely! The service was prompt, the owner was charming & shared the home's lovely history, and the food was delicious. And I must say, the tea was phenomenal! All in all, it was a... More

In a darling old Victorian house with a wrap-around porch and decorated rooms, you can sip your choice of teas in delicate tea cups, eat finger sandwiches and scones with Devonshire cream and lemon curd, and pretend you are in another century. They even have hats for you to borrow, if you feel like dressing for the occasion. Reservations are... More

Beautifully decorated dining room. Delicious tea and sandwhiches. The scones and cream were fresh and tasty. It was a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere
