The White Linen has potential for much charm, unfortunately our High Tea experience fell short of expected ambiance that you pay for. We arrived on time for our reservation but we were seated and served late at an awkward table in view of the open kitchen with clanging dish and prep noise affecting our conversation. Service was pleasant but hurried,... More

I love the quaint ambiance. The high tea has gotten quite pricey. The sandwiches are ok, but the scones are excellent. The bie-sized desserts are a nice touch.

Was visiting a friend who never had an opportunity to experience a wonderful afternoon tea service. The food was delicious, atmosphere was friendly and service was outstanding. Love the decor and variety of teas (herbal and non-herbal). It was lightly snowing and for a Florida gal like me...the day was perfect!! Next time I am in Buffalo, will surely suggest... More

This is an old farmhouse, converted to a tea room while keeping the setting to the time period. tables are a bit close together, and the noise level can be a bit much when there are larger groups-like 6-8. They serve breakfast and lunch, with the traditional English high tea, or an endless ability to order brunch as well as... More

3 friends and myself went there this past Saturday and we all truly enjoyed this quaint little Victorian style restaurant! The service was great as was the food! I also loved the atmosphere as it was tastefully decorated! We plan on going back again soon!

Plan on several hours if you come for the afternoon tea. It was my 1st tea experience and it was enjoyable, albeit lengthy and pricey. Salad, scones, desserts, delicious sandwiches, and coffee or tea - $34 per person (higher than price listed on many sites). The salad is served individually, but everything else comes out at once on a shared... More

White linen tea house is a beautiful old home converted into a restaurant and gift shop. You can enjoy breakfast and lunch. Book a tea party with delicious food and wonderful desserts. Plan a wedding shower, or any special occasion. Then when you are done you can visit the old barn next door filled with amazing antiques.

visited here for the first time, this trip to the antique center next door We wound up with a big bag full of great tea flavors for a good price, and found many unusual things related to brewing tea ,that I haven't seen in a very long time.

Had a lovely tea experience with granddaughter. We have been exploring tea rooms and this was an elegant venue. We were served selected teas in beautiful rose china tea pots and matching saucers. There were white linen table cloths and napkins. They also serve a wonderful array of tiered finger sandwiches and scones, etc. We did not enjoy any of... More

I've been to The White Linen Tea House for afternoon tea now three times. The location is pretty: a white house with a wrap-around porch, beautiful flower baskets adorn every corner and comfortable outdoor seats. Next to the house are refurbished farm barns that now house antiques. Pretty landscaping all around including a goldfish pond. Inside, they have decorated the... More
