This is a great little quaint tea room that is popular in our area. Both ladies and men love it! The chicken salad is fabulous! Wonderful tea and cute unique gift shop!

You better like chicken salad or loaded bagels because that IS what is on the menu here. Chicken salad hot or cold - both are very good. And there are bagels and you can have lox on it. The teas are spectacular! They blend them themselves and they offer the only tea my husband will drink! They also have a... More

My daughter took me to the Tavern for a belated Mother's Day Brunch and it was excellent! The atmosphere was nice and relaxing. The food was great. I cannot wait to go back again.

It has been a while since we had eaten there and the food is just as good as we remembered. We had the Chilled Chicken salad which was awesome. My wife had fresh squeezed lemonade and I had the ice tea flavor of the day, both were good. We ate upstairs and had a great table next to a window.... More

If you're looking for a cozy, charming place to have lunch with a friend, this is the place. Yes, the menu is very limited, but as many times as I've come here, I've never been tempted to look at their bagel sandwiches. Instead, I always choose their delicious chicken salad, available in 2 varieties--one hot and one cold. The portion... More

Located North of Roanoke (on 220/81), not far from Valley View Mall and Airport (which has nothing but chains around it). Well worth the drive. But call for reservations on Saturday! Perfect for brunch with the ladies. Even has a nice, separate upper room for events. Menu is NOT for hungry men. Nice gift shop. Good value for the price,... More

I have eaten here many times, and I love it every time! I eat here for lunch with friends often and sometimes with my husband. My kids love this place too, so I sometimes treat them to a special lunch here. The spinach artichoke warm chicken salad in the bread bowl is my absolute favorite here! The peach ginger tea... More

This is the second time we ate lunch here and it was just as good the second time. The chicken salad is wonderful and there's a tea flavor for everyone. It is very small and reservations are highly recommended, especially for Saturdays. This time we even had dessert and the amaretto pound cake was fantastic. Worth the time and a... More
