“Lovely Lunch at the Tea Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Lunch at the Dunbar Tea Shop was a relaxing break from our typical vacation lunch.
The food was attractively served on blue and white china dishes. The tea was served in a pot with a "tea cozy" wrapped around the pot. Absolutely charming!
Seating is available in a charming dining room or in the garden. The meal was moderately priced for lunch but it was worth the experience.

“At last a tea shop.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Tea shops are rare in Massachusetts...at least I think so. Dunbars Tea Shop has a wide range of excellent teas for sale. Then there is the restaurant which is spacious and serves excellent food accompanied by the tea of your choice. We had a lovely lunch. The ham was lovely and served with salad and watermelon. Pudding was very fine. I had the apple pie which was delicious and a friend had something thoroughly wicked.
Sandwich is an interesting town to visit and the tea room is perfectly situated. I'd happily go again and have recommended it to friends here in the Cape.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

I went with 2 friends for lunch. Everything was exactly what we were looking for. Atmosphere was very quaint and relaxing. Food was delicious and the service was great. We also loved the little gift shop to browse in after we ate. I definitely would go back again.

“Allow time to relax and enjoy the experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

My sister and I had a leisurely lunch here during our stay in Cape Cod. The food was delicious and there was a variety of choices on the menu. We were seated outside on the patio and it was a beautiful setting with huge tall trees, green lawn and flowers all around. There was even a classical guitar player providing music. The service was very unhurried, so make sure you have time to savor the setting as well as the food.
