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.

I have been to many tearooms and this is now my favorite!!!! Everything was top notch....and I finally could say after this tea I was not still hungry!!!!

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!

My sisters and I and a very good friend just surprised my mom with a retirement party at 600 Main, Victorian Tearoom, this past Sunday. What a great place for an authentic teaparty. It was truly beautiful and my mom can't stop talking about the place. Ornate rooms decorated beautifully. Susan, the proprietor, certainly did her research well. The details were carried out perfectly. She thought of everything to make a perfect Victorian Tearoom. My mom loved it so much that she is coming back to actually spend the weekend in this bed and breakfast. Easy on and off the Garden State Parkway. Affordable and elegant. Very welcoming. Susan opened up the place to us on a Sunday when they are really closed. So accommodating. Food was excellent. Just a perfect afternoon!

600 Main is simply amazing! The atmosphere is so elegant, yet extremely relaxing and enjoyable. Between the food and service, one cannot find a better tea room in New Jersey. If you have not been here do not wait any longer and call for a reservation. The owner Susan goes above and beyond to make the experience so remeberable. I look forward to coming back again!

It is hard to picture a better place for an elegant, yet quite modestly priced, afternoon tea than this lovely and historic turn-of-the-20th century mansion in Toms River. While staying at the B & B in late March, I was able to arrange an intimate Victorian tea for close friends and family in the cozy 'library' room, with its spectacular Moroccan leather ceiling and leather walls (impressive!) and its lovely window view of the expansive back lawn. The Victorian decor of the china and furnishings, the precisiion and elegance of the food preparation and presentation, were remarkable. Each person had his or her own large teapot of freshly-brewed tea, chosen individually from an impressive list of offerings, some quite unusual and all delicious. The array of scones, pastries, cookies, fruit, ... (more)

My daughter's Bridal Shower was on June 2, 2013 at 600 MAIN. The theme was Alice in Wonderland. Susan and John Notte did a fantastic job from iced and hot teas to soup, salad, scones (the best scone I ever tasted, by the way), finger sandwiches, and sweets. The service was outstanding and the hospitality was exceptional. This Victorian Tea Room is both beautiful and warm. You can book an event here and relax, knowing that everything will be taken care of. My guests are still raving about the food and atmosphere. What a wonderful day we had, and the teas, simply delicious!

The tea room at 600 Main is a hidden jewel. Susan makes you feel like family the minute you arrive restful. Susan brought out several tea leaves that were featured that day and explained their qualities with great knowledge. It is difficult to believe Susan is new to this. The food was excellent . From soup to salad to savory items and dessert it is difficult to select a favorite as each homemade item is delicious. I found this experience to be one of the best, if not the best, tea experience I have had. I felt so refreshed after spending the afternoon there. I look forward to returning in June.

I hosted a baby shower for my daughter-in-law at 600 Main and this was the best decision I could have made. My guests are still talking about what a beautiful day they had and how different this event was. Susan, the owner, is the best. I loved working with her to make all of the arrangements and her staff on the day of the shower could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The food was all homemade, delicious and abundant. The choice of teas was varied and each guest had the opportunity to try any or all flavors. My personal favorite was the cranberry harvest. The menu served as a conversation starter as the guests tasted each course. The venue itself is beautiful, cozy and historic. I was sorry to see the day come to an end.

I have been an afternoon tea lover since my mom and I met an English friend for tea in London in June 1986! Yesterday my friend and I had one of the most memorable teas ever at the new Victorian tearoom, 600 Main, in downtown Toms River. To say it was fantastic is an understatement. From the moment owner Susan greeted us at the door until we parted (I gave her a big hug on the way out), everything--and I mean everything--was absolutely perfect. It is hard to believe that Susan is new at this, for she seems like a seasoned pro to me. Susan has made some changes for the better, I think, since the previous owner ran the tea room. First, outside, the grounds in the front are beautiful now, having been cleared and planted, so that you can really appreciate the façade of this grand old sea capta... (more)

Visiting 600 Main under new management was the best decision I've made in a long time! Everything is beautiful, from the house, to the decor, even down to the teacups! The service was consistent, the tea was delicious, and the food was simply the best I've had in a while. It was easy to tell without asking that the food is prepared similarly to a home cooked meal, but with the delicacy of a tea room. The owners are warm, pleasant, and friendly. It feels more like visiting friends at their home than visiting an establishment. Very cozy, very nice, very memorable. Can't wait to come back.

We went on Mother's Day and it was positively lovely. The tea was delish and the food divine. The house was drop dead gorgeous and every attention to detail was there. We felt like we stepped back in time in a good way. The table settings were beautiful and every place setting was unique and special. The service was stupendous. Thank you for making our visit so very special!!

600 Main Victorian Tearoom is absolutely the best tearoom I've ever visited. They have an extensive offering of tea and begin with setting three 'highlighted' loose-leaf teas on a tray for you to be tempted by as you look over the menue of teas. After making your tea selection, the meal begins with course after delicious course of home-made soup, scones (with clotted cream and lemon curd), tea sandwiches and tea desserts. And your full-size pot of tea is served with a cozy! I can't believe the number of tea rooms I've been to that overlook the necessity of keeping the tea hot!
