The cafe is situated in one room of this adorable Victorian gift shop. They are about to celebrate 30 years in business at that location. The food was delicious and we each ordered our own pot of tea with lunch. Fresh soups are made each day and choice of soup or salad comes with any sandwich. If you order the... More

An intimate and elegant spot to meet a friend for lunch. Fresh food, lovingly prepared by the owner. You are never rushed and can linger over tea and dessert. Added bonus in the attached gift shop which you can browse before or after your meal. Don't miss the hidden treasures that can found in the Carriage Consignment Shop in the... More

Enjoyable lunch at Calico Rose Cafe. My friend and I stopped while in the area and had a very nice time. We both ordered the Chicken Salad which was delicious. I had a salad with my sandwich which was good and my friend had mushroom soup that she liked. I would definitely recommend this cafe. The only downside was that... More

Located in large Victorian house with many gift rooms, Calico Rose offers a varied menu selection. One might call it a tea room but coffee is served as well as other offerings. Casual dining, no rush, sit and relax with good food.

We stopped in for late lunch and dessert and were thrilled with everything at this unique place. For the same price of a mediocre sandwich at the hotel we got a soup, salad,and quiche meal where each was excellent - by any standard. For dessert we had carrot cake and peach cobbler which were fantastic. Everything was fresh and tasty... More

One of the best places for friends to gather. The food is great, the owner and staff are wonderful, and the total experience is relaxing. There's never any rush to get through your meal. A very extensive menu. Lots of teas to choose from. Although it seems like a "girl place", there are often men with their wives for weekend... More

A great place for a bridal shower. Our waitress Kim was really attentive, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was cute. Perfect for a group of women to get together and gossip and gab at!!! Also, the shopping was a lot of fun. They had lots of interesting and quirky crafty things for sale. It never got boring! And... More
