Wonderful lobster bisque. The prime rib was a little fatty for my taste, but good seasoning. Vegetable medley was done perfectly. Didn't care for the rose champagne sorbet, too flowery in taste, guava or raspberry would have been more to my liking. The chocolate dipped strawberry was delightful as was the Bourbon Street Vanilla tea. Mahalo

Nice idea, but the prices are way out of line for what you get. Have been here twice and both times the tea sandwiches were stale.

Even with a coupon, this is an expensive place to visit. Therefore, the service and food should measure up. They don't.. The tea selection is excellent, but many of the samples smelled stale, rather than fresh. The sandwiches were good but the selection was ham and cheese, fish salad, and cucumber. Nothing special in terms of taste. Th scone was... More

My 8 yr. old daughter and I came across this quaint and elegant spot. I used a Groupon to purchase Princess Heather's tea for two service. The atmosphere was lovely and so was the service. We learned some of the menu services were named after the owners lovely daughters. This place is very cute and a definite must when you... More

I visited A Cup of Tea with a group of my daughter's friends and their moms. We thought it would be fun to have tea, then walk down the street to take a tour of Moana Chocolate Factory. Since we had a large group we opted to reserve the private room. Unfortunately, when you reserve this room you can only... More

This was our second visit. We went to this tea room shortly after it opened and did not have a very good experience. Parking can also be a real pain. However, they offered a Groupon so we thought we would try it again. The service was bumbling and unprofessional. We had a reservation but they had trouble finding it because... More

It's true - we arrived without a reservation and in shorts (it is Hawaii, and we stopped on a whim when we saw the place). However, the place still had plenty of empty tables, and it was mid-afternoon - i.e., prime afternoon tea time. We were asked what we wanted before we were seated. Actually, they looked at us funny,... More

Large group 20+: private rom. Nice Christmas ambiance and it is VERY girly so men keep out. But the food was awful. Cheddar broccoli soup was cheddar WATER with a couple teeny pieces of broccoli. UGH. The sandwiches were wonder bread--wheat and white--doghy crappola withBARELY anything IN them--all de-crusted and served on tiered trays. BUT TASTELESS. Vegi, Ham, and curried... More
