This is a cute little place. But the problem lies in the fact that you MUST order the whole tea at lunch time. No healthy lunches here. If you decide not to order all the food on the tea tray you're out of luck. You can't just order soup or just tea- there is a ten dollar minimum. When I... More

This is one of my favorite places for a special treat to take another lady or a young lady on a special occasion or outing.

This was a very pleasant and delicious tea for our family of four ladies spanning three generations. We enjoyed the hot tea on this chilly day, each of us choosing from among about 60 selections. The Paris blend was my choice and it was perfect! We enjoyed The Ultimate Tea and each of us added a bowl of soup to... More

What fun!!!! When my friend suggested we go to a tea party, I truly did not want to go. Boy, am I glad she was persistent. The entire experience was what I remember as a child with my tea cups, dressed up, and sitting around a table with my "friends" dolls. The atmosphere was comfortable, the tea, and food delicious....

Our group of five friends visited here during our stay in North Myrtle Beach. One lady had been here before and we were doing the consignment shops in the area, so this was the perfect place to recharge our batteries. We had reservations - they're required. It's a small cottage and you find yourself in a quaint and pretty room... More

What a charming place for lunch with your friends. Great place to celebrate a birthday or just getting together. They offer hats and boas to dress up. Downton Abbey look out. The ultimate high tea starts with a salad, followed by tea sandwiches, scones and dessert. You have a great selection of teas to choose from for your own pot... More

Instead of the wild Bachelorette Party, this would be so nice, for the more conservative Bride to Be) Excellent for a mother daughter outing, a “milestone” type celebration, like a sweet 16, graduation, …. More for Tweens- Adults, not elementary aged children…. You have to hold your reservation with a Credit Card, so be sure that everyone you plan to... More

8 couples vacationing here for a week. The ladies looking for a nice high tea. The garden tea room fit that bill. The service, presentation, tea foods and teas were excellent. No need to pack that tea hat and boa, they have them for you there!!! The highlight was the lavender blueberry scones with homemade lemon curd! Yum yum!!

We love going to tea and this place is one of the better places. There are different levels of tea service you can order: A cream tea which is scones and fruit, a light tea which includes tea sandwiches and fruit, or the Ultimate Tea which is a four course tea service. You must make reservations if you are going... More
