You have to visit here - new owners of a former tea shop this couple have added amazing baked treats as well as delicious salads and soups. You can also reserve for high tea on weekends which is so worth it. A great addition to...Port TownsendMore
We had high tea with all the fixins - Tea, small sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and an array of yummy desert pastries. Add to that a glass of champagne and you have a delicious and fun lunch.
Pippa and her staff are...so friendly and took wonderful care of us!
Leave some time to browse the wonderful tea section - they have so many unique varieties as well as your favorites.More
A visit to the Victorian town of Port Townsend seemed ideally complemented by indulging in high tea. I was delighted to receive a reply to my email from Pippa herself confirming my reservation. The staff was warm and welcoming. I had preselected the Royal Tea...which included a variety of sandwiches, scones with jam and homemade clotted cream, fresh berries, mini desserts, a choice of tea, and a glass of bubbly (I was on vacation, after all.) Pippa jokingly insisted that I clean my three-tiered plate, and proudly noted that the clotted cream takes two days to make. One of the helpful servers offered advice on tea selection; I enjoyed mine tremendously. I did manage to put away the sandwiches, scones and, yes, all of the clotted cream, but I had to take the desserts to go. Pippa confessed that the only person who ever finished the entire portion was a 12-year-old girl. A charming find!More

It was such a pleasure to have you Lisa. Thanks for taking the time to write a review - and of course we are delighted you enjoyed your Royal High Tea. We hope you return again soon - and have another attempt to finish all...More
When you enter Pippa's, the first thing you notice is a wall of shelves stocked with all kinds of teas imaginable, some familiar, some exotic and rare. It reminded me of a curry shop in Greenwich Village whose extravagant offerings went from wall to wall....It was like being in curry heaven. That's the same feeling you get at Pippa's. Their prices are fairly reasonable, too. Another thing striking about Pippa's is how big it is inside. From outside, it seems small. I belong to the poetry group that meets there every third Friday of the month for one hour. The back space, complete with sofas, easily accommodates 15/20 people. Compared to the various coffee shops in town, Pippa's is several decibels lower. So, if relative quietude is your thing, this is the place.More

I’m so glad you participate in and enjoy the Open Mic Poetry Nights. They are very special - such a warm, friendly and supportive group. Thank you for being part of it, and for your kind words. See you on the next 3rd Friday!
The selection of tea and service of it is remarkable. I always get a decafe, chocolate tea (can't remember the name - except by ? von chocolate). I go there principally for the food - great sandwiches, cookies. But the crown jewel is the scones...with clotted creme and confiture. It's just excellent. I've also had the high tea, which is all excellent!More
