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!

- Sarah Findlay 03/31/14

Tearoom Response
Dearest Sarah,
Thank you for such kind words! It was our pleasure serving you and your friend. Thank you also for trying our Parisian Nights blend that I make from fresh lavender and rose petals from France and a blend of estate black tea and dried peaches.
Look forward to serving you again!
Love,
Donna and Chelsie

I met my friend for a Tea date. When we walked in we were in 'Tea Heaven':)
Our lovely hostess Donna greated us .warmly and invited us to brouse her amazing gift shop. I wanted one of everything!!! I was amazed to see how many creative Hans made items she hadShe is so gifted and talented.
We were seated and delighted at the wonderful variety of tea selections including her own blends. We had the 'Chelsea' which had yummy sandwiches and a scone. Her presentation of each part of our meal was great. She let us select our hats from quite a variety. She made us feel special. We love the Bella Donna. Looking forward to our next tea time with her.

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.

Pray God's love, comfort and peace surround you and carry you thru this time!
Amen,

This beautiful, quaint tea room has beautifully presented and tasty food as well as lots of teas to choose from. Although it's an hours drive from home, the experience is worth that effort. Of the many times I've been, I've never been disappointed. It's my favorite tea room.

Grandma, Grandpa and their 5 year old granddaughter, Genny had such a wonderful time this past Saturday. It was all done to perfection. It was the best tearoom we have ever visited.

We're all thinking of other celebrations that must be shared here with our family and friends !

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!

- Susanne McClain 01/21/14

Tearoom Response
Dearest Susanne,
Oh Sweetie, its all Jesus! I'm a mess, BUT HE is Amazing! Anything about your tea time with us is because of Jesus!

May God bless you always, Donna

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.

- Loretta 01/21/14

Tearoom Response
Oh Dearest Loretta,
You are precious and I am so honored to meet you and have the pleasure of serving you and your friends tea in our little tea room!

I really enjoyed myself. Literally all by myself, I had the works! Tea, sandwiches, scone. Who says you need to have tea with company.It was definitely a great experience to wind down and have some me time.

- Jezenia Diaz 11/26/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

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 ! !

Lovely quaint respite in the middle of nowhere in the desert. Never expected such fantastic scones, tea selections, tea faire and service.

My granddaughter treated me to tea at Belladonna's for my birthday. I wasn't expecting much for a tea room in Lancaster. The 2 hour drive was absolutely worth every moment! !

Drove from Orange County to Lancaster because of the reviews here on teamap.com. We were not disappointed ! Everything was magical and each course served brought 'aaahhh's' from everyone!

I took my mom and 4 daughters with some of their friends to tea for my 11 yr old daughter's birthday and everyone loved it! The teas and food were excellent! It was charming, welcoming and very enjoyable. We are planning to take the 5 year old for her birthday in December!

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

Everything was excellent. Best tea house experience ever. Took us over 5 years to finally stop because we didn't think it had any hope of offering a proper tea here in Lancaster. We were so very wrong. Enjoyed our tea time and are planning my birthday party here to introduce all my friends to Belladonna. Thank you for being here.

We had such a wonderful time celebrating our Auntie's birthday! Everything about this quaint tea room is fabulous.

- Julianna Moffet 08/11/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

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 !

Will be back soon and often with more of my English friends and family. Thanks so much for providing this little taste of England right here in Lancaster, CA.

- Margarite H. 08/06/13

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.

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.

This was amazing to us and we can't wait to come back - with reservations ! !

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. I bought some to enjoy at home. Can't wait to come back with my sister and spend a few special hours with her.

I just recently booked a baby shower at the Belladonna. We are all so very excited to experience what everyone has been raving about. 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. She has one of those personalities that you just want to open up to and share your life story with. I cannot wait for this Saturday!

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. Their tea selection is fantastic, their scones are the best I have ever enjoyed and the sandwiches were filled with flavor. Can't wait for my family to come for a visit because this tea room will be one of the first places I share with them.

Came to visit family again from New York and had to come back to this charming quaint tea room. The memory of last time was just as special as our tea time today. 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. Wish we lived closer we would come every week.

What a pleasure it was to meet the owner this past week. Even though she is struggling with asthma, she is a very lovely host and blessed us with such kindness.
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.

- Belinda S. 05/27/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

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. Their scones were the best we have ever had anywhere and their artichoke and bacon toasted sandwich was to die for. If you haven't tried this lovely place yet, you should very soon.

- Connie B. 05/22/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

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.

- Vanessa O. 05/22/13

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.

Their met all our tea expectations and then some! It's the best tea time we have enjoyed in a very long time and can't wait to come back real soon. If you haven't visited this tea room you are missing out on a lovely time.

I have been coming to Belladonna for several years now and I can say everytime I go I leave happy that I took the time to have tea there. Not only being excellent in every way, I love the music that reflects God's love for all of us.

This tea room is a hidden treasure here in the AV. We have been driving by for years and never bothered to stop before. We were excited the moment we walked into the boutique. We shopped for over an hour and then shared tea for another hour with the most delicious teas and foods. Can't wait to bring more friends back with us. If you haven't stopped in this tea room yet, do it soon. You will be pleasantly surprised !

This tea room is what tea is all about. Relaxed, friendly, quaint and very tasty foods. Reminded us all of our home back in England sharing tea with our family and friends at my Auntie's home every Sunday. They aren't trying to compete with anyone, just sharing their love for tea and God over exceptional loose leaf teas. Can't wait to come back again on our next visit to Lancaster.

This is a great tea room. We have visited many through the U.S. in our travels with the air force and this is by far our favorite ! ! They are so nice and welcoming and the foods are amazing with lots of flavor. Their tea selection is more than we have ever heard of and we loved how they gave us a bottomless pot of fresh leaves each time. Their scones are also the best we have ever had! Can't wait to come back to visit again.

Nother's Day was made even more special spending it in the wonderful tea room. The service was very welcoming and friendly, the teas were fabulous and the food was amazing.

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. Not snooty at all. But the food and teas tasted every bit as good if not better than the snooty tea rooms. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Our visit to this tea room was very sweet. We went in with heavy hearts from a personal issue and Chelsie was so very kind and understanding.

Hope it will be soon.

My mother and I have been going to this tea room ever since I was little. The food is amazing. The presentation and decorations are beautiful, with a bit of whimsy (displaying upside down chairs and such for decorations). I've never been disappointed when I've gone.

We had a very lovely tea and the service was exceptional. Felt like we had been bere many times with their friendliness and caring attitude. All the flavors were delicious and the sonces were hot out of their oven. So good with their devon cream and jam. Can't wait to bring my mom back next week to celebrate Mother's Day.
Everyone should visit this tea room and experience the difference.

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.

Can't wait to bring my mom for Mother's Day. Came in today just for a cream tea and ended ordering the full tea lunch after tasting the scone. Fabulous! And the pumpkin cream pie tea was out of this world with all the spices blended perfectly.
My mom is going to be so surprised and over joyed to share tea with her daughters in such a great place. See you soon.

Been to Belladonna's many times over the years and the quality of service, selection of teas and flavors of all the foods continues to satisfy our every needs. 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.
The friend I took with me today had never been in before and she was absolutely blown away with every attention to detail and every moment spent in such a calming and lovely environment. Thanks again, Donna, for such a great time with my dear friend today.

We had way too much fun shopping before and after our tea time in your boutique. We've been to many tea rooms but none of them have ever had such an array of lovely merchandise.
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.

Walked in and were so surprised with all the victorian beauty. We had to stay for tea after that and had so much fun wearing their hats and taking pics. The food was delicious and their teas were so amazing. Had no idea there were so many flavors. We will be back soon.

This tea room is such a surprise. We had no idea they had a huge boutique of sparkles and everything a girl would want. My list was just too long to write down. I wanted all the tea sets and accessories also.
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.
We too will be bringing more people back to enjoy this charming place.

Really enjoyed our time in their tea room. We all ordered different teas and shared them around the table. My favorite one was their house tea of coconut cream with kiwi and strawberry. My fav scone was also their butterscotch and their devonshire cream was wonderful. We will be back soon with my sister and my mom.

The tea was soooo good and the scones were delicious! My girlfriend and I stopped by after shopping for our prom dresses last week and treated ourselves to tea time. We had no idea that we would be so pampered and cared for. They were soooo friendly and kind and explained everything to us. We are going to tell all our friends and going to try to plan a group tea here next month.

Thank you for a special time in your tea room. We are so glad you have made it into a quaint room that everyone can feel comfortable and welcomed in. Your welcoming manner and friendliness relaxed us at once and we truly enjoyed every moment of our time with you.
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.
We will tell everyone to visit your place and have a little 'mini retreat' away from their cares also! Thank you so much!

My sister and I wee driving by and finally stopped in to see what it was all about. There was so much to see in the boutique tnat we walked around for an hour amazed and wanting everything. We did buy several things so we could have tea at home.
We then only had time for tea and scones and their teas were so delicious and the scones were the best ones we have ever tasted. We can't wait to come back again and have the full tea experience when we have more time.

A cozy quaint tea room filled with victorian memories of days gone by. Their welcoming smiles and hearts for Jesus fill the air with sweet calmness and sets the mood for the most relaxing of times sipping tea with family and friends.
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 enjoyed the whole experience and can't wait to make the hour long drive back next time with more of our family and friends.

Great teas, delicious foods, soft music, freindly servers and dear sweet friends - what more could anyone want. Had a wonderful tea experience in the quaint tea room. Reminds me of the tea rooms I visited with my mom in England with my other family when we went a few years ago. Memories that can't be beat. Thank you for all the extra attention to my sister who had just lost her husband. Your gentleness and sweet spirit truly comforted her. May God continue to bless you and your business.

If you haven't stopped by this tea shop yet you must. We have been driving by for years and finally stopped in and what a surprise we had. We had no idea that this was a real tea room just like in England when we were growing up. It took us back to our childhood and all the times we enjoyed tea with our mum and gg. We can't wait to come back with our other sister and more friends.

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.
