The atmosphere is very cute, vintage and decorated/curated well. The service was great. However, the food was sub-par and mediocre. Instead of serving pastries, as would be expected for "high tea" we got simple mini-cupcakes that were way too sweet and some small, dry brownies. The chocolate chip scones were super dry and hard, the sandwiches were egg salad and pimento cheese but the ratio of filling to bread was way off and they were also dry. Worst of all, the water must have been straight from the tap or something but it has a super strong metallic taste that was very off-putting. Would recommend they start using a filter!

I brought 10 of my girlfrends with me to high tea for my birthday celebration, and we had the BEST time! We were pleased with the amount of tea and treats we go (WAY worth the money!), and I loved the gluten free platter option as well! Our service was awesome, the environment is great, and everyone was so nice and helpful. We're talking about making it a monthly event!

The service was excellent, and the presentation of the food, table and shop was abdolutely delightful. I wish my tea tea would have been timed, or that the tea bags would have been brought separately from the water, as it overbrewed, unfortunately affecting its taste. Additionally, a dish to deposit the brewed tea bags would have been appreciated. Additionally, we were not given utensils specifically for the jam and the "clotted cream." We had to use plastic knives to avoid cross-contamination between the two and our own plates. I was not interested in the food, however, I found it amusing that we were served "American-style" scones and a sweet whipped cream of sorts. Not quite the classic British treat one would expect, but still charming. I had a lovely afternoon. Knowing how friendly and accomodating the staff is, I look forward to returning for another cuppa.

I enjoyed my High Tea experience. The customer service was so warm and comforting. Casey was amazing!! The food was soo good. I got to experience some foods I haven't had before and enjoyed every bite. The clotted cream was such a great compliment to the scones. The Almond Tea was also soo good. I was glad it was caffeine-free. Overall I had a great time and will visit again.

February I requested substitute for egg sandwich and was given the pimento cheese. Requested online same for March High Tea. I was not notified that you were not willing to substitute again. So embarrassing for me, my guest and our very kind server. Egg allergy is something I wish I didn't have. Can't eat the quiche, I give that to my guests. Hospitality lacking in the Management and kitchen. Lovely server!

Me and my friends were excited about going here for your tea tasting experience. We were very disappointed. The quality of the food was not what we expected. The scones were dry and the cupcakes left much to be desired. The food seemed old. However, what disappointed us the most was the way the server treated us. We made a reservation for a party of 4 but only 3 of us could attend. You guys still charged us for the fourth person which is fair but then even though you served only 3 people you still charged us for the surcharge of serving 4 people. This is dishonest. I will not recommend you.

Great selection of high-quality teas. The pastries could stand some improvement (scones were dry, not the best choice of bread for cold finger sandwiches), but not bad by any means -- just okay. Service was a little inconsistent (we got seated first, but our orders came later than others), but the server was still attentive. Overall, a good experience. I will likely come back because it's a pleasant place to catch up with friends.

This was our first visit after hearty recommendations from several friends. We were greeted promptly and our reserved table was ready. The server was lovely, attentive and very gracious with our girls. He was knowledgable about all menu items and made very appropriate and well received suggestions that we thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely be back and are looking forward to our next visit! Thank you for a wonderful first experience and your dedication to charitable efforts around the world.

I have had tea and at least scones and clotted cream 4 times. I was really disappointed this time. I had a party of 6. We were squished in. There was only 1 dessert, gross red velvet mini cupcakes. The scones were stale and once again chocolate chip. So bored with their chocolate chip scones. Why must they always be chocolate chip! The tray was loose and risked falling the whole time. Our waitress gave us very little attention not filling our waters. We had to pay 20% tip for 5% service. Extremely disappointed. This will be my last time.

We enjoyed our visit very much. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The teas, sandwiches, and pastries were all very flavorful. I expected a little more food based on the price, but that would not prevent me from returning. Try the cranberry and blood orange tea!

Everything was wonderful! Except the bathroom it was nasty and needs to be redone. It needs a whimsical appearance like the tearoom and needs to be kept clean
