I seem to be in the vast minority with an extremely disappointing experience at the tea room. While the ambiance was nice, and the tomato soup was good, the watermelon and arugula salad was minus the arugula except for a sprig or two, and the rest of the food , especially the sandwiches and desserts were nothing like any I've ever had at other tea rooms. Whoever heard of thick rolls, and salami and cheese at a tea room? The desserts were even more unacceptable -- only the lemon tart was good. My daughter took one bite of each and rejected them. The service left me appalled -- my spreader, thick with curd, was placed back on the knife holder. Needless to say I will not recommend this place, and surely will not be coming back.

We enjoyed our first time at 600 Main this past weekend to celebrate my birthday.We were a party of 5,we made reservations ahead of time.The house is just beautiful,and was much lager than I expected(based on past tea house experiences).We were greeted right away,had our coats taken,and were seated .The staff was very friendly,and efficient.We were offered a selection of loose teas to view and smell,I chose Lemon Lavender,and was not disappointed.The tea was delicious,I drank the whole pot! We started off with a wonderful lentil soup served in tea cups(very cute)then a delicious crust less quiche over mixed greens.The sandwich selection and mini desserts came out next,on a pretty tierd tray ,the mini tartlet was my favorite,but all the sandwiches were tasty.The mini desserts were just the ...

Beautiful tearoom with warm, friendly service, but Teaberry's is still my vote for #1 as far as creativity and taste of food. Excellent value for the price.

My husband and I stayed overnight in the Lady Genevieve. We had an unbelievable time in this beautiful, Victorian home. Susan and John were the most gracious hosts and made us feel completely at home. The afternoon tea was amazing! Susan makes everything herself and you can tell she puts her heart and soul into everything she does. I have already reserved two dates in the future to return because we had such an awesome time! Thank you Susan and John for the experience! See you both soon.

We hosted a baby shower for 20 over Labor Day weekend and were so pleased with the experience. The mansion and tea room are already beautifully decorated, so there is no real need to add anything yourself. Their extensive tea menu allowed our guests to enjoy a traditional black alongside fruit, nut and rose varieties (you get to smell the loose blends in advance when you make your selection). Their menu includes soup and salad in addition to scones and assorted savories and sweets. Remembering specific praise, our guests particularly enjoyed the tomato basil soup, scones and chicken salad sandwiches. And they even brought out takeaway containers for us to save the extras.

600 Main is a terrific combination of elegant and cozy. The fact that it isn't a huge venue made for a more i... (more)

We just had my Daughter's bridal shower at 600 Main Street. It was a wonderful experience. Everyone enjoyed the variety of teas. My daughter, who normally does not enjoy tomato soup, said it was one of the best soups she's ever had. The watermelon salad was a perfect choice for the summer. Cranberry orange scone was to die for. Tea sandwiches and deserts were amazing. Afterwards, we adjoined to the living room for presents. The presentation, taste, service, and atmosphere makes this place a true find. Thanks Susan for making this a memorable event for my Daughter. We will definitely see you again and again!!!

A wonderfully presented and elegantly served traditional high tea in a magnificently decorated Victorian home is what we happily experienced in this wonderful B&B. We enjoyed a delicious tropical fruit flavored tea along with a savory creamed mushroom soup and celery and cheese salad with lemon vinaigrette. The scones were light as a feather and the homemade clotted cream was incredibly delicious. The desserts were delectable and were a wonderful finish for our experience. The service was first rate and the attention given to every detail from the table settings to the room decor was a pleasure from beginning to end. We're already planning a return trip!

We were guests of the B&B for a week and attended tea one afternoon. The event started with friendly staff and a menu of available teas, of which we could select quite a few, as well daily specials. (I recommend the strawberries and cream if it's available.) From there, small appetizers were offered (tomato-basil soup, celery salad, etc.) that change from time to time. To round off the experience, finger foods were enjoyed, both savory and sweet and of a great variety.

The decor was classical in its presentation. Susan has quite the set of teacups from which to choose - a style for every taste. If you're so inclined, they even have hats you can wear while you lunch!

Went for tea to 600 Main with five friends. Started with featured sample teas to smell(unbrewed), cucumber water, homemade basil tomato soup, celery salad. We were then served an assortment of delicious and beautiful tea sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and lemon curd. Ended with an adorable assortment of sweets made by an in house pastry chef! And what an assortment of teas! This place is the real thing, from service to decor to food. EXCELLENT !!!

I went with a group of ladies for a birthday tea and all of us were extremely pleased with the food, preparation and hospitality provided at 600 Main. The décor and attention to detail was exceptional. Definitely a place to go to enjoy a special day out or just to pamper yourself with the elegance of yesterday.

This was a surprise Mother's Day present from my daughter. It was our first experience in a tea room and having High Tea. The tea room is beautifully decorated with Victorian period furnishings as well as the antique china, silver, tablecloths and crystal. The tea was amazing and the soup, salad, scone, finger sandwiches and petite sweets were a delight. Both the owner Sue and our server Kim were warm and welcoming. We had a wonderful time enjoying this three hour event. After the tea we were given a tour of the gorgeous rooms of the bed and breakfast upstairs. An added bonus to this wonderful day was we made some new friends at the next table, who want to revisit this again.

We had the best tea party ever and we are professional and experienced tea examiners. It was the best experience we've had. The Almond Joy tea was the best! Peach tea is a non-miss and Raspberry tea was delightful. Everything was tea down to the soap in the bathroom. The soap smelt so great I never want to wash my hands again! (Well, for the sake of germs I probably will) Kim our server was so personable and fantastic. If you want terrific service when you reserve your party definitely recommend her to wait on you. She is the best server yet in my life I've ever seen! Don't bother going to another Bed & Breakfast because THIS IS THE PLACE!!!!! Don't resist going, you will not be disappointed! Just go once for us and we guarantee it won't be your last.

I recently hosted a bridal shower for my daughter at 600 Main. I cannot praise the inn keepers Susan and John enough! I want to thank, hug, thank and hug Susan again for making this one of the best events in our lives. Every detail, from the delicious mushroom soup, to the quiche, to the amazing scone and outstanding variety of tea sandwiches and sweets were nothing short of 5 star. There was something for every taste bud and finicky eater. Our servers Kim and Kim were outstanding. My guests have called or texted several times to thank me and I have heard nothing but praise from all who attended. I'm sorry it's over! (But luckily we can have tea there anytime we want). If you are looking for a nice afternoon tea or hosting a larger group, and want something different than the usual, look no further....This is the place.

I took my daughter for her 18th birthday. We enjoyed a leisurely 3-hour tea during which we met Susan, the owner, who gave us a history of the building and a tour of the rooms. She is down-to-earth and friendly, and truly wants folks to enjoy their experience. Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious-especially the scone with lemon curd. There was enough food to bring a few things home. We will make this an annual tradition.

This is truly an oasis in the middle of Toms River. From the time we stepped into this beautiful inn we felt like we were visiting the home of a close friend. We were welcomed, our coats were hung, and we were shown to a beautiful table by a window looking out at the backyard. It was lightly snowing, both fireplaces were blazing and it was the start of something special. The antique teacups, plates, and cutlery set the stage for an amazing array of homemade goodies. The soup, salad, savories and sweets were delicious. There was a large selection of loose tea: black, green, white, decaf. We chose a pot of decaf raspberry and a pot of Victorian Christmas. The owner, Sue, makes sure to visit and talk with everyone. Servers take care to refill tea and make sure everything is perfect. We spent... (more)

We traveled from north jersey with a large group to celebrate a friend's birthday. The experience was delightful. The staff was attentive and personable and we did not feel like they were preoccupied with the other groups that were also there having tea parties. We were catered too and treated like special guests. We definitely plan on revisiting 600 Main in the spring! I have been to many different tea houses and I highly recommend this tea house to others- novices and connoisseurs alike!!

I'll start by saying this is my third tea. I've been to teas in NYC and Florida. I have super high expectations, have super picky food tastes and am hard to impress. 600 Main Street impressed me beyond belief. My mom held my baby shower there yesterday. Not only was the venue aptly decorated for Christmas, it was warm, cozy and very clean!

The food was outrageous. My husband and I eat out a lot and the food was on par with excellent restaurants out there. The mushroom soup was creamy but not too creamy, perfect consistency and the perfect temperature. Never mind the taste. Incredible. The celery salad was simple but delicious and refreshing. The quiche was outrageous. My mother who doesn't like eggs devoured the quiche. Both scones we tried (cranberry with white chocolate and sund... (more)

I had my sisters Bridal Shower at 600 Main and loved every second of planning and enjoying the day itself. I had stopped by numerous times and looked around the beautiful Victorian house with my mom and grandmother. Susan is the sweetest person you will ever meet and really made my sisters shower such a special day. Every time I called or stopped by Susan was always there to help! The food was excellent at the party, I had gotten so many calls from everyone who attended thanking us for such a nice afternoon and telling us how delicious everything was. All of the food was so fresh, you didn't feel like you ate a salt and grease filled meal like at a restaurant. Everything was such a delight and I can't wait for one of my girlfriends to get pregnant so I can plan another event here! Thank you again Susan, you are fantastic!
