The owner/operator has a family recipe for scones and lemon curd - the best ever! We had the mandarin chicken salad with vegetarian vegetable soup. The ingredients were fresh and beautifully presented. Many kinds of tea are available here and a special recipe lemonade. You will enjoy the charming furnishings as well as the food.

The owner could use more help. She was short-handed when we got there, and two days later when my sister went for lunch. The food and tea are fabulous. The chilled strawberry soup is to die for! The house is gorgeous and filled with beautiful antiques. She has a photo album which showed some of the before and after photos, but I wish I'd had more time to talk with the owner about the restoration project.

Miss Pat has done a remarkable job restoring this Gothic beauty, and an even more remarkable job turning it into the go-to place in St. Jo for a pleasant and satisfying luncheon. When the weather is favorable, don't miss sitting outside in the garden to enjoy your delicious repast - her garden is simply the best!

This is the place to go with the girls to spend a couple of hours relaxing, sipping tea, and nibbling on dainty food. Don't go if you're in a rush. Eat dessert. (I do wish they had more comfortable chairs).

A friend and I ventured to St. Joseph for a spot of tea and lunch. What a wonderful historical restaurant with a fantastic tea menu and delicious food! Our hostess was courteous and a wonderful chef! I highly recommend going here if you love a meal made from scratch and a pleasant atmosphere. We plan to go back in spring to enjoy tea outdoors!
