A GEM in Lancaster ! Who knew!? I took my four year old daughter , it was amazing. She was so excited she even dressed like Snow White! Every detail was thought out from the moment we entered the door! Amazing greeting, food, tea, ambiance, service ! Donna was so sweet to my daughter! My daughter was amazed by it all , from the powder room - to the hats and the sweet gift they gave my daughter. The detail in all tr food and presentation. All I can say is WOW! It's hard to find a place these days who really has a vision and puts the customer experience first. We will be back very soon and frequently!

I love coming to Belladonna Tea Riom! The scones and tea are delicious and such great service. I have an amazing time every time I go.

Amazing experience at Belladonna. I've tried quite a few tea rooms in Southern California and this is by far the best one above and beyond. The service is warm and inviting, the food is fresh and delicious, clearly made with thought and care in each serving. And the tea selection is vast and delicious. I came here with my mom and we had such a delightful time and were made to feel very welcome, like we were family. I look forward to my mom coming back to town so we can go again and share the experience with my new baby girl. This will easily become our new grandma/mother/daughter tradition.

Love, love, love Belladonna!! I feel like time stands still when I am sitting in the tea room enjoying fellowship with friends. The food is always good. I always end up ordering Creme Brûlée tea...the best!!:) I now live in Florida but I make a point of going to Belladonna when I am in Lancaster!!

Stepping into Belladonna is like stepping into another world and letting the cares of the world fall away. I go there with friends a lot to relax, unwind and let the frustrations of life keep from overwhelming me. Very peaceful! And the food is fabulous too! Best tea house I have EVER been to!

I have been blessed to be served by Donna at the Tea House numerous times. Each time the food was fantastic and the attention to details were more than I could ask for. I like dressing up in different hats each time I visit there. Donna is a gracious hostess! Thank you for all you have given. I will visit the next time I am in town.

- Sandi W 07/06/14

Going to Belladonna is always a wonderful experience. Donna is such a gracious welcoming hostess and so are her helpers.
It is a magical, welcoming atmosphere-- a whimsical Victorian style. They use tea leaves--never bags! And what a great tea selection! The scones are so delicious all freshly made! Everything on the menu is prepared with much love and everything has that special 'Donna'
touch. The desserts are so scrumptuous and each one beautifully decorated. The little sandwiches are delicious. It is a wonderful experience. I have been there many, mnay times. All of my guests have loved going there. I took my granddaughter there who lives out of town. Now, she wants to go every time she comes to Palmdale! She loved being treated like a princess; she had the Princess Camryn Tiara Tea. Donna, thank you for all you do to make our visits to BellaDonna so magical and special, especially your loving and welcoming spirit. Lisi 7/4/14

Wonderful special date with my 7 year old little princess granddaughter! She loved the hat choices and her chocolate mint tea and princess lunch. I loved everything: the tea, salad, sandwiches and the delicious scones! Beautifully presented food and personal service! Great place for calm little princesses but not a good place for rowdy little ones! Nice intimate day we both enjoyed!

My dear friend, Bonnie treated me to a delightful lunch at Belladonna's. The tearoom is decorated in a whimsical style with many things to catch your attention. We wore hats from a large selection on display for such purpose. Then each of us chose a tea from the handmade menu. The loose tea was served in lovely teapots. We enjoyed fresh baked scones, tasty sandwiches and desserts.
Donna was very attentive and we were pleased to be there and plan to visit again soon.

- Ann 06/29/14

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

As a surprise my dear friend took me to tea here in lieu of lunch at one of our regular haunts. It was a wonderful experience. From start to finish it was a delight. We began with choosing the hats we were to wear, then were seated at a charmingly cozy table presented with hand made menus where we made our choices. Our delicious food was presented so cleverly. Each of us were provided a bottomless pot of tea of our choosing and adorable hand-made tea cozies kept our pots toasty. The owner was most attentive, but not annoyingly so. The decor is very feminine, whimsical and ecletic. Afterwards we shopped in the gift area. The entire exerience was so lovely. We will be returning!

Where to start!! I called Belladonna on Wed. wanting to come in for tea, Donna informs me that she prefers reservations in order to be prepared and provide fresh and sufficient choices from her menu. We make the reservation over the phone which was quick, easy, cheerful, and explained very well. We make it there today, Friday, and from the moment we pulled into the parking lot (plenty of it) to the minute we drove off, EVERYTHING was wonderful!! I was amazed at the fact that all her decor, which hangs off the walls and ceilings, were dust free!!! Sandwiches were divine, and the tea is lose leafs, no bags!! Desserts were just lovely and made me smile with every bite! Powder room was magical, and her gift shop was just lovely!! First time here, but surely not the last! Thanks Ms. Donna, you shared so much with us and made it very nice for my daughter and I!! God Bless!

I have visited Belladonna Gift Boutique and Tea Room countless times and I have to say it is one of my favorite places to go. The tea is delicious, the food is scrumptious, and the atmosphere is completely charming.

My latest visit was on June 14th. I took my mom for her birthday and she had the best time. Donna made her feel so special with a candle attached to her dessert plate and she gave her a lovely magnet as a birthday gift. We enjoyed the full tea with salad, sandwiches, scones, and dessert. It was an amazing way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We cannot wait to go back!

My friends and I are already looking forward to our next visit to Belladonna Tea Room. It is always a special treat. This as always was another delightful experience. We liked the change to the traditional English way the food was presented. It allowed a bit more time for conversation.

I am writing this to include my friend Jacqui Burkholder who does not have e-mail. She is the one who treated me to my first tea experience at Belladonna a few years ago. It didn't take long to turn me into a huge fan.

Thank you so much for serving unique and scrumptious food and making everyone feel welcome.

Came to buy loose leaf tea and stayed for 2 hours and enjoyed the best tea lunch I have ever enjoyed. Their scones are to die for and their lemon curd was fabulous.

I finally went to Belladonna on 3/28/14 and my experience was beyond perfect!
I met a friend that had been only once before and it was the best lunch I've had In a long time. We were greeted right away immediately taken to our prefect little table already for us. I felt like we were VIPs .

My friend and I enjoyed the full tea (scones, sandwich, salad, dessert) and everything was hand made with love and a little touch of spirituality that was heart warming. I had the Parisian Nights tea. Let me tell you.. Better than any earl grey or lavender blend tea I've EVER had!

I loved the fine craftsmanship that went in to making this a very special place for young and old. You've made a regular out of me and I thank everyone for making this my new treasures location!

I love this Tea House! This place has been very special to myself and my family. This has always been a place that my Great Grandmother, my Mom, and I have gone to together to have a special day together. When my Great Grandmother passed my Great Grandfather and I came to celebrate her birthday. Donna was absolutely wonderful and really made that day extra special!! My Great Grandfather has now passed and my Mom and I plan to take another visit to honor both of them. This place will always hold a special place in my heart and I love the warm and welcome feeling when I am there.

My friend, Loretta, introduced me to
this amazing tea house last weekend.
It was an afternoon I will always
remember. The sandwiches and scones
and desert bites were delicious. The cucumber sandwich was wrapped up like a little present. We were to unwrap the gift and receive all
the goodness that God brought to us
that day. Donna the owner, is the most amazing woman and her story is worth reading in her book, that you can buy at the tea gift shop. It was hard to leave the magic of the tea room and go home. I can hardly wait to go back! We went for tea and were filled with His blessings through Donna, a woman we had never met before. As I left,I wrote a
prayer on a golden lock and hung it on the fence outside the tea room. I
will come back when God answers my
prayer and unlock it. Praise the Lord!

Best 'TEA TIME' I have ever had in a teahouse. WELL...WELL..WELL worth the trip to Lancaster. The whole house is dreamy. I took pictures of the entire home so I could remember the beauty... LOTS of EYE CANDY. The food=the best and to even TOP it OFF... the OWNER is absolutely spectacular. Be sure to buy several of her books to pass around along with the 12 teas of friendship. Your friends will LOVE them. Go, Go, Go... it's the best EVER.

This tea room is such an amazing quaint place. The atmosphere is filled with kindness, love and pampering. We have never enjoyed tea so much before, even at the Empress Hotel in Canada ! Their foods are so full of flavor and their tea selection is so varied we finally settled on their house tea, Belladonna that has coconut cream, kiwi and strawberries ! Now my favorite tea ever.
If you haven't visited this tea room yet, you are truly missing an experience to remember. The owner and her daughter are fun, sweet and made our event a success.
Thank you for an afternoon to remember ! !

This quaint tea room is darling. It reminds me of my English childhood where we would sit around the table and share tea with family and friends every day. What fond memories.

Their scones were better than I have ever had, sorry mum. And their version of devon cream is very tasteful - where as true English devon doesn't have much taste. Their tea selection is outstanding and changed my mins about only drinking english breakfast. I enjoyed Donna's Earl Grey de la Creme very much too. Their sandwiches were delicious and the desserts were very exciting, tasteful and the presentation made us giggle !

Visited here last time I came to see family and Donna prayed with me about something very personal ! She made me feel so loved and important and I left with hope !

Donna and Chelsie are amazing and I couldn't wait for another verbal prayer from them. Well, once again this quaint little tea room filled my heart and mind with hope ! !

Thank you God for this place and fill them to overflowing with your strength, love and peace ! In Jesus Name.

Lovely tea experience. We have been to formal and larger tea rooms and haven't enjoyed ourselves as much as we did at Belladonna's. The food was amazing, the teas were extensive and delicious, the desserts were great but most importantly the service was the best ! ! They made my mom's birthday an event she will never forget! !

What a surprise to find this treasure right here in my own back yard almost ! I've been driving by for over 10 years and never took the time out of my busy schedule to stop and visit.

My mom and sister would have loved this place also and it's too late to bring them here for a special time together. Not going to make the same mistake with my daughters and friends. Already made reservations for a mother and daughter tea and can't wait.

The customers in the tea room said they've been coming for years and that the food and service are excellent and well worth the time, money and effort.

Can't wait for our reservation to make memories sharing tea with my family and friends.

So sad we didn't make reservations and couldn't do a last minute tea here. They were so busy and everyone was giggling and having such a great time.

Just walked in out of the blue because I have been driving by forever. I was completely taken aback with the beauty, sparkles, kindness and love in this place. They were hosting a large party and the giggles and excitement filled the air. I was only able to taste their sample in the boutique of 'Divine Intervention' and it was fabulous.

Although I have yet to experience the tea and food I can honestly say that just the mere experience of booking the party has been a blessing. Donna is beyond kind and easy to speak to.

Wonderful surprise to find such a sweet tea room right here in my new home town. Moved from New York and didn't have much hope for finding a place to enjoy tea here.

Every thing has such detail and the presentation is as amazing as the taste ! The AV is so blessed to have such a tea room to enjoy and everyone should be visiting it as much as possible.

And her scones are the best we have ever tasted in all our travels to tea rooms. The sandwiches were delicious and the desserts were a very pleasant sweet surprise.
This quaint tea room is our choice from now on and will bring all our family and friends here soon.

This is such a sweet tea room and their friendliness makes this a perfect choice to celebrate any occasion. Their foods were exceptional and their teas were extensive.

This is a wonderful place to enjoy tea with friends and family. We had a great time celebrating my sister's birthday and they pampered us and even gave her a sweet hankie as a gift for her birthday. So many unexpected surprises made this a very pleasant visit. We can certainly understand why they are rated so high. We've been to other tea rooms that weren't so nice, the foods weren't that tasty and the formality was too stiff. We will be back soon with other friends and family.

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

This tea room is rated #1 for it's quaint English/Victorian atmosphere, their welcoming and friendly personalities, their delicious variety of tea foods, their extensive variety of tea flavors and the best shopping experience for tea lovers ! !

This tea room is where friends and family gather to make memories with the est tasting tea foods we have ever enjoyed - much better than the Empress Hotel in Canada. They are not trying to compete with hotels and/or places more formal and snooty at all. It's the complete opposite and exactly what most tea lovers are looking for - evidently - since they are rated as such on this site.

If you are looking for a snooty formal atmosphere where you fit in and look down on the rest of us average ladies, Belladonna's Tea Room is certainly not the place for you.

My daughter and I had the best time. So far, this is my favorite tea room ever. The ambiance is so adorable and down to earth and dreamy at the same time. We felt so at home and relaxed.

This tea room is a lovely place to share a quiet tea with anyone. There are even hats to wear if you like and they will take the pictures for you. The tea choices were so many we asked which were the most popular and ordered those. They were all delicious but my favorite was their Lavender Fields that the owner blends herself with lavender from France. The scones were out of this world and the tea sandwiches were delicious. I already made another reservation to come next week with more family.

This is a true labor of love for Donna and it shows in her genuiness and care of her customers. Her ever present smile always welcomes us into an enchanting tea experience and we are so lucky to have this tea room in our community.

Our tea experience was wonderful also. The Belladonna House Blend tea is my favorite but my friend loved the Lavender Fields better. We loved the scones, sandwiches, salad and the asst. desserts were wonderful. We already have plans to bring more of our friends for a tea party the next time. Thank you for your words of encouragement for my friend during this time in her life. She talked about it all the way home. See you again real soon.

The tea was so delicious and the scones were the best we have ever tasted - way better than the ones we ever had in England - these were hot out of the oven.

Your teas and foods were delicious and we bought lots of your teas to make at home also. Thank you for explaining so simply how to make loose leaf tea, we had no idea about any of it.

Their tea selections were divine, literally, I loved their 'Divine Intervention' and the food was absolutely delicious. Every bite was very enjoyable. The desserts were very fun and the presentation on everything was very eye appealing.

We made the long drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, via this side trip to Lancaster, just to visit this tea room because of all the reviews.
What a joy we had. My husband was so thrilled he wants to take me to tea again on the way back home. Their welcoming smiles, delicious selections of tea and the fabulously tasty sandwiches are well worth it all. AND their raspberry chocolate truffle parfait is so yummy I wanted to lick the delicate glass dish it is served in!
We also bought some of their teas to take with us and I treated myself to a scarf and some jewelry!
What an experience all in itself. If you haven't visited this delightful quaint tea room, what are you waiting for? All the reviews are so true ! ! Thank you!

This is such a surprise to find up here in Lancaster. We drove from Simi Valley to see why this was #1 tea room. We now understand it's because of their hearts for Jesus and their fabulous tea foods and tea selections. Yes, we have been to all the hotels and even to Queen Mary and Victoria Tea Room in Canada, but the foods at Belladonna and their scones especially were the best ever!

We will certainly make this drive again with more tea lovers to enjoy this tea experience !

We enjoyed our visit very much. Have heard about your tea room for several years and finally drove up from Orange County, a very long 2 hour drive. But it was well worth it. We go to tea a lot and most are fomal and stiff and snooty. What a delight to be treated as friends and/or family and to have so many choices to choose from.

We loved the 'Belladonna House Blend' tea and your scones are the BEST we have evver enjoyed. Very good selection of sandwiches and the desserts were very yummmy. We will be back again next month with more family and freinds.

Our drive from Ridgecrest was once again worth it all. We meet here every few months or so with a couple of friends that drive up from LA. It's about our half way point and we are never disappointed. They have the best scones of all the tea houses we have ever been to and their devon cream is so delicious I want to eat it by the spoonfuls. Their sandwiches are fantastic and I love the toasted bacon with artichoke the best or maybe the bacon wrapped date or maybe its their gargonzola and raspberry tart? Can't decide because they are all so delicious. Didn't buy anything in the boutique this time because I bought way too much last time. But we will be back again soon and I'm sure there will be more treasures to look at.

Belladonna's has the best scones we have ever tasted, their food is very flavorful and the tea selection is outstanding. Their quaint tea room is not formal and neither is tea supposed to be so stiff that you place rigid rules upon it. This is still for now a free country and everyone has the freedom to share wonderful music that soothes the sole in their own business. This is typical of a liberal minded person that demands rights for themselves but not for someone that doesn't think like them.

God bless this tea room and mulitply their business ten fold.

Why is it that only liberals, gays and muslims have the right to express their beliefs? The below review is the only one on this entire site that said disliked everything about this little tea room? AND it was totally because they are Christians and play instrumental worship in the background ! !

We've been bringing new friends here for years and everything is wonderful, tasteful and fitting a tea room. AND I just moved here from England and it's just like my favorite tea room in my town.

Their scones are served first because they came hot right out of the oven - unlike most tea rooms..... and they serve tea in courses as you are finished. ALL tea rooms serve a little differently and this was a wonderful experience for my entire family ! !

AND anonymous untruthful reviews should always be ignored !

We were so delighted to have tea in this quaint tea room. The atmosphere is so welcoming and so friendly. We love the Godly atmosphere and if this offends you, it is not necessary to blast their establishment. The scones are delicious, there are tablecloths and lace toppers as well as memorabelia under the glass tops. So sad to see someone once again attacking a place because of ther Christian belief. We will certainly return for another visit and tell all our friends about this lovely environment!

Came to the Los Angeles area from Northern Cal and decided to check out the top Tea Rooms, here, we were very disappointed in Belladonna, it should not be rated #1, firstly it is cramped, glass table tops, no table cloths, the scones were served 1st an absolute nono in the world of Tea and they were way too sweet and hard and the rest of the food only soso. I guess as they have a captive audience by the get the reviews but as we are both English born and bred so it is not like we don’t know. If you are expecting the best it is not here. Another thing, they have no website and you need to give a credit card when making a reservation which they told us would be charged if we didn’t show, I am under the impression one must advertise that particular regulation. Unfortunately a long drive for a huge disappointment! And, religion should be kept in the home, not in business we didn’t realize we were going to a religious place, didn’t appreciate the “worship” while we were having Tea.

We've been to many tea rooms in our travels and were surprised to find one in the AV when moving here from New York. We didn't expect much from this little house and the quaint tea room. We were so pleasantly surprised with the tea selections, their made from scratch (most tea rooms serve ones they buy frozen) that are served hot right from their oven, their version of devonshire cream is the best we have ever had also. Their varieties of tea sandwiches were wonderful and their desserts were very delicious as well.
We will absolutely be back with our family when they visit and they too will be shopping in their very fun gift shop! ! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to enjoy tea ! ! Can't wait to visit again.

I took my granddaughter to Belladonna's for her first tea party and she had a wonderful time, with the adorable princess lunch and of course a purple hat to wear. She is looking forward to another tea party this summer when she visits us.
My friends and I had been before and it was delightful and delicious as always, it feeds the body and the soul at Belladonna's. Thank you Donna.

This fabulous tea house always brings the girls in our family together with much joy. The service is impeccable and very home-like. The variations in tea, pastries, and merchandise is awesome and every visit ends in happiness. This family-friendly establishment serves small portions of scones. sandwiches, and salads, but don't let the food size fool you as we leave complete and full every time and because the tea house is a God first establishment, our spirits are lifted and full upon every leave. Keep up the good work and tradition by keeping it a family establishment. We recommend with whole hearts.

My best friend brought me and my two girls to Belladonna's for my birthday on Oct. 26, 2012. To say that Donna is remarkable is an understatement. The whole atmosphere was exactly what my soul needed that day and it has stayed with me ever since. I didn't know if my girls would be as excited as I was, but they have talked about it and have asked for us to return! Later on, Donna helped my best friend pick out my Christmas gift which was a teapot and saucer. It was Divine intervention, because the design was exactly the one that I had looked at prior and hoped to get one day. I have also read her book and have to say that this is the only tea room that I would recommend wholeheartedly!

This has been a family favorite since 1999 when Donna first opened the doors! We have had many times of sharing, prayer and fellowship with our family members, as well as Donna. What a blessing it always is to stop in for a visit! This Christmas we took many of our family members to enjoy a pot of tea and delicious scones, complete with Chelsea Creme and Preserves. Later, we perused the many unique gift items available throughout the boutique and tea room. A 'MUST ENJOY' for those who love an old-fashioned Victorian tea :) THANK YOU DONNA for another fabulous experience. We love you!! The family of Belle DuBose :)

My first time there, and I already love it. The cutest place! The decor is amazing, and the gift shop has so many great gifts that I wanted to buy all of them! The food was excellent.

Having lived in England the last three years, and sampled many tea rooms, this place is one of the closest to the real deal! The variety of teas was great! Even some types that you would only find in England. The cream tea included warm and delicious scones, fruit jam, and devonshire cream. The cream was not quite the 'clotted cream' that you would find in England, but it was fairly close that I was impressed.

The service was friendly and enjoyable. We were offered more than enough tea, and extra cream or jam if we wanted. We arrived early not realizing that the tea room usually opens at 11am, but the staff was more than willing to go ahead and open up the tea room for us.

I will definitely be visiting again, and bringing others! They even offer a 10% military discount in the tea room.

I have been to Bella Donna's on several occasions but this past time was very special because we took my Grandmother for her 100's birthday. The service, tea and food were impeccable. Our server catered to our every need even though she had a full house. She offered many levels of tea service and since we had my niece with us she even offered a Princess tea. All 5 of us had a great time. I would recommend Bella Donna's for any occasion. We were pleasantly surprised upon leaving that my Grandmother was presented with 2 very special gifts. I can't thank the team of Bella Donna's enough for an amazing afternoon.

Been to other tearooms BUT Belladonna's is a keeper!!! Went on Fri. for her book signing but didn't have time for tea. I did get a chance to do so with my sister earlier in the week. Donna once again convinced me to try something new to me-fig (or maybe it was a date? Wrapped in bacon)-either one-had never had one b4 & it was fantastic. Hopefully I'll be able to have time to have a cuppa this week.

I will not make a habit of writing on this site, but I wish to respond to Donna. My friend and I were disappointed, but NOT upset about the soup. What we were upset about and I am asking that as a business woman, you consider this...we made a reservation to ensure that we had the soup. It was the only reason we made a reservation. We both feel that a policy should be in place to ensure that items are held for those that make reservations and not given out to walk ins. Also, if there is a change in the menu,the server informs the guest as soon as they sit down and ensures that they are okay with the changes. When we asked about the missing soup, your daughter said she was sorry that she forgot to mention it and that she would leave you a note and that we could come back. My friend and I bot... (more)

Tearoom Response
My Dearest Sisson,
Normally we try to make every guests visit with us as satisfactory as possible. We couldn't be ranked #1 on this site and have all 4 stars on almost every review otherwise. But, on your first phone conversation on Tuesday (regarding your visit last Wednesday) with my daughter you belittled her, ridiculed her and intimedated her so badly that she cried hysterically and I could barely recognise her voice. All this because you wanted the 'CUP OF SOUP' instead of the salad ? ? ? ?

You ordered the Full Belladonna Lunch which included: Bottomless pot of gourmet teas, scone served with preserves and devonshire cream, 2 chicken cranberry sandwiches, 2 artichoke/bacon sandwiches, cucumber and pesto sandwich, gargonzola tart, plum wrapped date, and a provolone cheese crisp and our petite house salad of romain/spinach with grapevine tomotoes, cranberries, candied almonds and house raspberry vinaigrette and for dessert chocolate cake with french truffles, strawberry stuffed with strawberry cream, pumpkin bread pudding with rum sauce and an apple tart.

This is what thousands of guests have been enjoying in our tea room for the past 13 years and we are truly sorry that you only came for the soup..... but we are a TEA ROOM and perhaps you should have gone to a soup house instead.

Again, there was no substitution, our menue clearly states 'chef's choice of salad or soup'.

This will be our last conversation with you over a 'CUP OF SOUP'. Donna
Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

I travel from Oregon to come to this FANTASTIC tearoom. Sure I've been disappointed when they have been out of their soup BUT not to the extent of rudeness. Donna/Chelsie have always made sure that the substitution was equally as good. I have never (in all my times of being there) had a bad experience. It's certainly worth the trip to enjoy their company & shop.

The food and tea were nice, but the treatment that we received was unacceptable. My friend and I made a reservation, secured it with a credit card and were looking forward to the special soup for the month. Once there, things were fine till the server mentioned time for desert. We then asked what happened to our soup. she stated that she had 4 walk-ins that day and was now out of soup. We expressed our disappointment and she said that she would inform the owner (her mom) and we could come another day. When I called to set up a date for the soup, she made it clear that we would have to pay for it and that she had substituted salad on the previous visit. At no time during our initial visit, did the server let us know that she was out of soup or that she substituted something else without our... (more)

- Sisson 10/23/12

Tearoom Response
Dear Sisson,
Again, we are certainly very sorry that you did not receive soup on your visit and it seems we obviously cannot apologize enough for you. As explained several times, our menu very clearly states that it is 'chef's choice of salad or soup' that comes with the full lunch.

I have enjoyed dinners and teas in many countries and substitutions are a fact of life and I cannot for the life of me understand this sort of reaction over a cup of soup.... no matter how good it is.

Your verbal attack on Chelsie 'OVER A CUP OF SOUP' was so totally abusive that she called me crying and her voice was barely recognizable.

All I can offer at this point is our deepest apologies that you did not get our soup, ONCE AGAIN, and wish you the best in your future tea adventures to other tea rooms. DONNA

Drove from Ventura to go see about this tea house. What a surprise it was from the first step into the door. The gift shop is full of surprises, china, jewelry and victorian things they make - I bought several completely unique items.
The service was very kind, welcoming and friendly ! ! The tea selections were amazing and the scones were totally worth the drive just by themselves. The tea sandwiches were delightfully surprising and varied - my fav was the gargonzola and sweet pepper jam fillo ! The pumpkin bacon soup was so good I almost licked the tea cup it was served in. The desserts were as great to the taste as they were to the eye ! ! We will absolutely be back and will spread the word to all our other tea friends.
