What a wonderful little gem tucked away in a quaint neighborhood of Sarasota. My daughter and I called ahead and made reservations for two for high tea. This was one of the best high teas we have ever had! Bountiful scones, Madeline’s, and other French...pastries to start, finger sandwiches such as caprese and prosciutto, and wonderful desserts such as macaroons and cheesecake bites. Huge choice of teas and even a glass of champagne was included. Every party has a small private room to themselves with very attentive servers. We would definitely return!More

We ordered afternoon tea for two (be forewarned you have to reserve two days in advance for the afternoon tea) and it was amazing. This place is made up of small rooms. They gave us our own room and it was set up beautifully. We...were greeted warmly and made to feel very welcomed. The food was lovely and fresh, tasty and nicely presented. They serve an enormous amount of food, so go hungry. They have over seventy teas to choose from. Their scones are not the traditional ones but were delicious. I have had afternoon tea at the Empress in Victoria, the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, the Peninsula in Hong Kong, the Diplomat hotel in Stockholm and many places in the United States. This was by far the BEST afternoon tea I have ever had. I almost don't want to tell everyone how good it is because I don't want to wait in line for it when it becomes too popular. I am already making plans to return. They also offer a small lunch menu or you can just stop in for a cup of tea and a pastry. They are doing everything right here, from the food to the service, it was excellent!More

This place was a surprise. Yes, they have many kinds of tea, and many luscious desserts from which to choose. But, they also have a larger food selection than we had expected. And they have several small rooms set up for various group experiences. I'll...post some pictures. We enjoyed our lunch there and recommend the place highly.More

During spring break my daughter and I visited the Elixir Tea House in Sarasota. It was lovely!!! Several rooms are closed off to the others, each one has a different theme, and can hold two people to ten. The menu has multiple kinds of lunch...items from salads to sandwiches, 80 different teas, several coffee drinks from espresso to lattes, and an enormous selection of desserts. The hours of operation are incredible. They have poetry reading at night which would be a fun way to relax.More

No loud background noises or crowds here! Small personalized seating areas makes it feel like your sitting in your own home, but with the bonus of over 40 teas and coffee to choose from and a nice variety of foods. Three of us shared the...antipasto and hummus plates along with an order of no-oil air fried French fries. Nice portions and all was flavorful. Great experience. Will definitely go back...if nothing else to try the delicious looking patties!More

As soon as we walked in we could tell this was a different type of place. The lady led us into a private room with several board games. Each room has a different theme, such as books or music. The tea choices are from all...over the world and some very unusual such as ginger-licorice tea. The little pastries called nuggets are delicious.More

We are in a new neighborhood and a group of us ladies decided to spend some time together as we enjoyed a Tea Time experience. There are several rooms here - some with floor seating, some with low seating, and a few at table height....A black and a green tea was offered. The sandwiches were open faced - I would have liked some small quartered sandwiches as well. The scones were huge and the pastries were very good. A bell would beckon the attendant to help us with any additional requests. It was a very nice experience and a chance for all of us to wear a dress.More
