Came here with my wife and her two sisters. This is our first time for all of us. This is a nice place for lunch. It is also a small market with assorted items for sale, teas, chocolate, desserts.. and many more items. We came...for lunch. We all had the pasties. It comes with gravy on the side and apple/ cole slaw. Reasonably priced and good. Service was also good. We can’t wait to come again and try something else.More

Husband and I took our 4 year old granddaughter here on a date. What fun! It opened at 11:00 and when we arrived at 11:15 we took the last booth available. That's how popular this place is. Not just for ladies either. There were just...as many men eating lunch, even outdoor working men in work clothes. They know GOOD FOOD! An amazing list of tea options, and they even provided a child size teacup and saucer for our Evelyn. Due to food allergies, we had to bring food for her but the establishment didn't mind at all. Our menu choices were very good, great atmosphere and the staff is friendly, attentive and helpful. It's nice that a Michigan small town has a quality restaurant like this.More

The Rea shop is always an adorable spot for lunch, but I also have to recommend their catering services. We used them for a recent bridal shower and it was superb! Delicious food (quiches, wraps, apple slaw, profiteroles, and more) and excellent service and communication...running up to the event. I would definitely use them again!More

One stop on our Tecumseh food crawl this year. Cosy place for cakes and tea. Closed too early. Benches could be more comfortable, need cushions.

This is one of the few places where you brew your own tea from tea leaves. The fresh brew is the perfect compliment to the lunch which is always prepared fresh. I especially love the daily soups. I have also had the chicken salad sandwich...and it is a nice flavor. Everything has a great presentation. It is also fun to shop in the store. Where else can you find a selection of aprons? They have great small cook books for children and our grandkids love them. The selection of teas is outstanding. Great place to stop and let time roll by with a great lunch.More

Went with a few other girls for a little day trip and to try the Tea Garden. Nice variety on the menu, service was good. I wouldn’t say I would hurry back but it is a fun place to go with friends and then walk...around the Main Street and see the shops. Many teas to try, salads , sandwiches not bad place.More

British tea room and gift shop. A nice place to visit with friends and have a cup of tea. The foods are all British and you can taste many things that are unfamiliar to you. We always stay longer then planned and they keep the...tea coming. It may be handicapped accessible from the back but I doubt if the rest rooms are since they are downstairs. I managed to complete my Christmas shopping here.More

Cute little gift shop (mainly tea themed but also other items for the home; British themed and holiday/seasonal themed). Nice selection of teas. They've recently added a small coffee bar (lattes, cappuccinos, etc). I've only had lunch there a couple of times, but they have...nice, fresh salads, quiche, soup, sandwiches, homemade desserts, etc. along with traditional British fare. Great place for homemade type food - a nice break from the standard fare available at most other restaurants in town.More

My daughter lives in Ohio, so when she comes up she just loves to go to the British Tea Garden for brunch. The apple Slaw is the best I have ever had. My daughter just loves the finger sandwich platter
