We passed this little tea room often, & finally made a point to stop in. If you enjoy tea, scones, quiche, sandwiches and more, stop in and enjoy a relaxing meal or tea. Several flavors, lovely dining area. Excellently service. Will return.

Attention to detail and spot on flavors of both teas and food. There is no finer tea menu around and they will refill your pot with any other tea of your choice. Owner is friendly and gracious. Highly recommend.

I agree with junepat—casual to dressy. Lady patrons tend to wear dresses as they do a lot of bridal & baby showers there.
