Whenever my daughter visits from Boston, a trip to Selah Tea is a must. Great sandwiches and desserts. Breakfast is really good too and not crowded like the pancake type houses. Free wifi makes it attractive to the students in the colleges nearby. Nice to just hang out and have a nice chat while you share lunch or just a... More

We purchased two peanut butter brownies and one lemon bar to go. We were surprised that the lemon bar was dry and the peanut butter layer of the brownie had so much sugar we couldn't eat it. This is a healthy food store and we didn't expect the desserts to be disappointing. We will let them know and try another... More

Delicious! This restaurant is most definitely my favorite restaurant in Waterville! Whenever my friends come to visit I make it a point to bring them here. I always get the Belgian Waffle and it's fantastic. Always fresh ingredients and always yummy! The staff is super friendly and they will always remember you. They serve different kinds of teas and are... More

Best place in town for tea and food! Amazing atmosphere and great staff. Love that they have vegan/vegetarian options as well! Been a costumer for 4 years and will continue to go there. ☺️

I keep returning to have a wonderful cup of tea and friendly service. The soups are out of this world and the Belgian waffles are my favorite. I also enjoy their bagels and sandwiches for lunch. The friendly service is really the best part.

At Selah Tea, there are always some great choices of freshly made salads, soups, wraps, sandwiches and pastries along with a huge variety of hot and cold coffees and teas. I've never been disappointed here. With friendly staff and comfortable seating, it's a great place to stop for a quick bite or to sit and read a book for a... More

In a city that has at least 3 (maybe more) Dunkin Donuts franchises, Selah Tea is a nice local change. Not "dissing" Dunkins, but sometimes you want to chill in a non-uniform environment. And Selah is that. I am not really a tea drinker, but their coffee is delicious. And I really like their salads. The sandwiches are served with... More

The tea makes the place, but the ambiance of the space makes ... so many of us come to sit on a comfortable sofa or chair around a big table -- at busy times, hard to lounge there but at other times -- great fun with friends. Lots of great teas, brewed to your taste in your own pot with... More

The gf was insisting on a vegetarian late breakfast, which is far less attractive to me, but we happened upon Selah Tea, and I instantly loved the place. It is very open and light. Tidy, with lots of good things to eat. Imagine my surprise to find sausage biscuits and gravy on the menu. Paired that with an exotic iced... More

While not really a full service restaurant, Selah is a great place to stop in for a hearty bowl of soup, a yummy sandwich and a great cup of coffee or tea. The food is a bit expensive, but fresh, and well made. Soup samples are available to help you decide between the 4-6 offerings. There are vegan and vegetarian... More
