I contacted the establishment twice via email and twice via phone. I emailed several weeks ahead of time that I wanted to have a little tea party for a 7-year-old young lady's birthday, along with her friend, her mom, and myself. I spent a considerable amount of time researching other tearooms around the W/SW/S suburbs. The pictures and menu lead... More

Was invited here for a baby shower & it was lovely. Perfect setting for a gathering of family & friends. The shop is adorable, eclectic merchandise mixed about with a selection of teas, antique tea cups and saucers. The shop offered a menu to choose flavored hot & cold teas. We were served quiche, mixed fruit, delicious sconces with whipped... More

After my interaction with the owner this past weekend, I cannot recommend anyone visit this business. The owner was down right rude, argumentative and unprofessional. Myself and 2 other family members hosted a surprise birthday party, which was booked back at the end of October 2015. We called a couple of different times to verify what we were able to... More

The place was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Although service was a bit slow, the two waitresses were friendly and accommodating. It is fun to look around their shop at their unique gits, smelling teas and reading all their funny signs. We had reservations for 8 to attend their Holiday High Tea. Their website advertised an informative tea talk and holiday... More

NIce place to have tea and special treats with super atmosphere. The waitresses and all personnel had a wonderful knowledge of tea and how it was served in the past. Loved the background of tea in England and in the US. Great soup, great tea, and great treats. Loved the /lime curd sandwich, cucumber sandwich, and the pumpkin scones were... More

Visited this tea room with three other friends and found this to be a great stop. Having been to many afternoon teas, Pickwick knocked my socks off! Everyone had something different and found each plate quite tasty. A sampler version of the sweet and savory plate is always available, but order ahead for the multi tier plates of sandwiches and...

This is a wonderful little place tucked away in downtown Frankfort. I especially love their quiches and salads--great for lunch with a friend!

We went to this lovely tea room to celebrate my birthday. I have shopped in their store but always wanted to have lunch there. It was so quaint, it's small but we got seated right away. The waitress asked if we wanted to sample their flavored teas. the menu was very interesting and selections were named after "little women" characters.... More

Inventive and ingenius variations on afternoon tea without being too over the top or un-tea like! had iced tea and it was delicious, the champagne strawberry, i believe! the sandwiches were lovely too and though i did not enjoy the lemon and ginger scones as much as the cinnamon ones, they were still super tasty! service was lovely and personal...

This is a cute place to go with your girlfriends for lunch or tea. A little pricey, but everything is homemade. Wonderful tea sandwiches, soups, scones, lemon curd, and, like its name, they have a long list of loose teas to choose from. You can choose from different menus, if you would prefer the formal tea service, or just lunch,... More
