Description: Tea on the Mountain offers elegant afternoon or High Tea, leisurely luncheons and fabulous dinners in a warm, eclectic setting. Enjoy delicious, made from scratch dishes and Southern hospitality. Spotless white linens, fresh flowers and the unique china setting for each table makes dining at Tea on the Mountain a fantastic experience. The Luncheon Menu for the day offers a variety of tasty dishes, filling enough to satisfy and light enough to leave room for one of our desserts. We change the menu frequently, adding new items and varying some of the most popular ones with slight tweaking of recipies or combinations of items. Tea at Tea on the Mountain is extra special, no matter what option you choose. High Tea showcases the culinary talents of the owner and chef, Myrna. High tea includes freshly baked scones with lemon curd and clotted cream, tasty tea sandwiches, Scotch eggs, morsels from the pastry selections and delectable desserts. We also offer a delightful Afternoon Tea or a Cream Tea.

“A Real Find”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Tea on the Mountain, Tracy City, in the Sewanee-Monteagle area of Tennessee is a small reservations only Thursday-Satueday evening dinner delight with china, crystal, and silver and your preordered entres cooked to perfection. Our group had beef, salmon, talapia, and scampi, with excellent salad, and three outstanding desserts. All resonably priced. Plus BYOB allows you to bring your own favorite accompanying wine. Setting is quiet with candles and fresh flowers. Service attentive. They do serve leisurly lunches and afternoon tea.

“What a delightful experience”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

We had no idea what we would find when we visited Tea on the Mountain a couple of weeks ago. We were pleasantly surprised to find linen table cloths, upholstered seats, and fine china and polished silver on every table. Pat greeted us and led us through the six courses of high tea. He had an anecdote for every course and truly enjoys sharing. To find out that everything is prepared in the kitchen on site - from lemon curd to clotted cream, to the savories, pastries, and sandwiches, is amazing! They welcomed all of us, including my 7 year old daughter, and we are so glad we went!

“one of our favorite restaurants in tennessee”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

For anyone traveling near the Sewanee or Monteagle area, please try Tea On The Mountain in Tracy City. The food is outstanding and the service is terrific. The owners will make you feel like family. It will be an experience you won't forget. The prices are reasonable both for lunch (Thu-Sat) and dinner (by reservation Fri and Sat). The menu has something for everyone. This is one of our favorite places in Tennessee and we always stop by when we are in the area. Check them out on Facebook.
