From the private room, to the tea and goodies it was an exceptional experience. The place was charming and so were the owners. We will definitely go again.

Imagine sipping your favorite tea and tasting a variety of bite-sized culinary treats in a generously decorated, mostly pink, private tearoom in a gingerbread cottage. The few ninety-minute seatings each day are limited, so it is not unusual to have to wait several weeks for...a reservation. Except for the choice of tea and alternative beverages, the menu selections each day are picked by the host and served on a three-tiered tray. While not a major tea fancier, I did enjoy my scented oolong – each of us were served our own small pot with a tea cozy. The server remained attentive to the table, responding quickly when we rang the call bell. Classical music completed the ambiance. The only other word I can use to describe this tasty, pampered experience is “civilized.”More

OMG! I HAD A BLAST! The food is delicious, the owners are WONDERFUL and service on point. What a change of pace for two girlfriends on a girls day together. Everything made in house with exquisite detail, and a wife-husband team that just rock it!...You can take whatever you can't stuff! Tea choices are insane! These people have a tea problem! Absolutely delightful in every way!More

The first time I was there was good, this time not so much. I was listed as Vegan and being vegan is a great opportunity to make really tasty foods. The only person receiving the The Tiered Tower was the one of all four of...us that was not vegan or vegetarian. The others were served on regular plates. My cuke n cream type sandwich was quite flavorless with not crisp cucumber slices. I also got a peanut butter n jelly....Really.!!! Peanut butter n Jelly....unbelievable! The cookies I received tasted like plain cookies from a grocery store plastic tray. I had a couple of treats that were quite good as well.. Our waiter was rather nonchalant. A lady came out later, very cheerily...hi......how are things. None of us wanted to say we thought most of our foods were very below par for the price. She seemed very nice n would of like her to have waited on us. Our first time there would have received a good review so we expected much better than what we received. We drove a considerable distance to get there.More

My niece wanted to go for afternoon tea for her birthday last year after she saw an article about this place called "Fancy That". My sister didn't realize how popular this place was and ended up having to make reservations for a several months after...my nieces birthday. This ended up being a good thing because it gave me time to buy my "outfit". Yes the dress , the hat and the gloves all English Tea appropriate. We arrived to an adorable Victorian house. We were seated in our own private little room. A perfectly set table with English bone China with a little pink crystal over the table. A large window with lace curtains. And pink velvet settee. We were served little tea sandwiches, muffins and macaroons on a three tier plate and of course tea. I was by no way "Full", but everything was delicious. I believe it was a little $$$, but so much fun and worth the experienceMore

The tea is by far the...best we have ever had in the US! We traveled nearly an hour to get there and it was well worth it so make sure you don't miss the chance to pay Sarah & Fancy That a visit.

My best friend and i treated ourselves to tea in the afternoon at Fancy That last Christmas and were absolutely delighted. I grew up drinking tea in the afternoons and this place took me back to my youth and wonderful times. We are planning to...go back this Christmas and make this a yearly event. The place is decorated magnificent to the last detail and the food and tea choices are not found anywhere else - not even at High Tea at the Park Plaza!More

I took my Grandmother to tea for her 80th birthday and we were both blown away by this experience. The place is charming and comfortable and the service was amazing. They even accommodated my gluten allergy without any trouble (I gave them 48 hours notice...as requested of course). This is the perfect spot for a lovely afternoon tea.More
