“Must visit”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Everything about this place is great - the staff, the tea, the food, the atmosphere! Our first visit was for a full meal with dessert that was so delicious that we couldn't leave town without stopping for traditional tea and scones - also delicious. I'll be dreaming of Elixir-of-life tea for some time to come.

“Fab tea rooms!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Delicious food but a little on the pricey side. Nice for a treat! Lime and courgette cake was lovely and like all their cakes it came with a little pot of cream on the side! Friendly attentive staff but this place can get a bit cramped when it's busy! Worth a visit if you doing mind paying a little extra.

“Even for Men”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

There is a sign out front telling men not to be afraid of entering a tea house. It is safe. This is not a pinky-finger tea house, but a small restaurant with a good selection of teas (and coffee) and an amazing selection of tasty cakes. They have other food there as well, but I stuck with the cakes.

“Lovely respite on a rainy day”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

After a stressful drive and nerve-wracking parking garage experience, my sister, niece and I stumbled upon this delightful oasis, featuring wonderful teas and mouth-watering baked goods and a friendly, casual atmosphere that still made you feel pampered and slightly retro-sophisticated. We loved all the eclectic tableware and settings and the obvious care that the shop takes in preparing and presenting its offerings. I would recommend it highly to anyone in need of a mid-day break.

“Charming”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This was my most favorite of all the tea shops we visited during our 10 day stay in Ireland. The tea was delicious and the food was scrumptious.
