The Calabash Garden tea room is one of the best tea rooms my wife and I have ever visited. Unlike so many other so called “tea rooms”, this tea room serves traditional English tea with finger sandwiches, scones, and deserts. Everything they do is done with excellence. But, most of all, the food is delicious! Treat yourself when you are in the Myrtle Beach area and visit this tea room. You will be glad you did.

A great way to spend a special afternoon with friends. The décor was just charming as were the hostesses. We enjoyed the ultimate tea, with the most difficult part being choosing from the many different varieties of teas. If you like girly-girl activities as much as I do, this place is the bee's knees!

- Dianne 01/08/14

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

Our group of 11 women had the ultimate tea and soup du jour, tomato basil with a perfect blend of herbs on a very cold January day. The home made salad dressing was excellent and available for purchase. We each had a different tea at our table and had plenty to share. The scones are so light and tasty. Kathy has the perfect recipe for them. Anna was knowledgeable and recommended tea choices from the many varieties. Attention to detail - we enjoyed the lemon bird press, the tea warmers, tea pot covers and lovely china. It was also fun to wear the boas and hats.

- Judy 01/08/14

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

We live in the area and delight in bringing visitors to this lovely tearoom. We always make use of their fashion closet and select fancy hats to wear during our sumptuous tea. Love the teas, food, service and decor.

My first time to a tea and I had a wonderful, romantic, traditional, enchanted experience. We will return every visit to the beach. I highly recommend this place.

- Victoria Burke 11/22/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

A most delightful, relaxing and satisfying afternoon tea in every way! My husband and I will now make this a part of our yearly visit to this area. Nothing less than excellence in all areas...atmosphere, service, tea selection and quality. Presentation of the 'Ultimate Tea' was one of the best I have encountered. Owners and staff make you feel most welcome and special. The added touches from the hats and boas you may choose from to wear and enjoy, the lemon birds on your water glasses, and roses added to the tiers of food presentation are just a few items that let you know your hosts have taken extra care to make your time with them a special moment you can reflect on with a smile.

My mother and I had a memorable visit to this lovely Victorian tea room complete with hats for you to choose from to enhance the experience. Fabulous food and over 200 teas to choose from. For a very special afternoon, visit for the high tea!

I and my dearest friend had a wonderful, serendipitous birthday lunch at the Calabash Tea Room on the recommendation of nearby Silver Coast Winery. The food was authentic and exceptional. The tea list was extensive and carefully selected. The staff is extraordinarily friendly knowledgeable and helpful. The atmosphere was special. I can't wait to bring my British friends too.

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

I have been to several Tea Houses including Ireland and this was the best experience ever. My sister and I and 2 friends were there to celebrate a birthday-They have never been to a Tea-they loved it so much they are telling their friends and planning future birthdays, mother days etc. Every women should have at least one experience of a Tea Room and I suggest Calabash Tea Room. The owners are lovely and have a great variety of hats that you can wear.

- Liz Johnston 09/13/13

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

This is a special experience. I've been coming here for a few years now and my friends and I make a point to schedule time to get together to drive up here. The teas are perfection, the food is dreamy, and make sure you get their tomato soup because its the best I've ever had in my life. The last time I went one of the owners gave me a tea cup of theirs. These are the sweetest people and you can't tell they're genuinely happy to be there. The location is even dreamy, its in a tiny little cottage style house and everything is just perfection adorable and dreamy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

A wonderful and whimsical place to spend an afternoon. The selection of teas is unprecedented and the food is worth going for alone. You will not be disappointed. There's no other place like this in the area or in the state as far as I am concerned.

We stay in Calabash every summer. This year my mother-in-law suggested visiting the Garden Tea Room to celebrate my daughter's 6th birthday. We couldn't be more pleased. The children's offerings were fantastically suited. The decor was adorable. The hats in back made for good fun while we waited. Each setting was served in a unique tea set. The scones were certainly our favorite! Even the men were pleased!

- Laura 08/05/13

This is a must do when my family comes to visit each year. It has become a tradition to 'Take Tea' at the Calabash Garden Tea Room. Although we have gone to Tea at other place, this is far and above all the rest. The food, the service and the fantastic selection of teas is just amazing. They have over 70 different blends of teas and some very refreshing iced teas to choose from. Whether or not you are a tea lover, you will have plenty of choices. Be sure to make reservations because it is extremely busy not only in the summer but most of the year as well!

Our family party of three adults enjoyed a delicious Apricot Melange tea along with the Ultimate Tea (high tea) - sandwiches were creative and varied, the scones were flavorful and light and the sweets, fruit centered and delicious. The whimsical addition of hat selections prior to tea afforded many laughs. We are returning next month to vacation and will definitely come back for another visit.

My mother, grandmother, and I have made coming to The Tea Room our annual tradition. I live in New York and visit my grandmother in Calabash about twice a year. We make it an absolute point to visit the Tea Room. Since day 1, I have stuck to my Apricot Melange tea. It is, in my opinion, the very best of the best. I highly recommend this place to everyone in this area!!!

I am a 'local' and this was my third visit to this charming tea room. The Calabash Garden Tea Room is the perfect place to get away from the busy world and relax in an atmosphere of quiet music, enjoy an excellent variety of teas (I had the Coconut Almond - wonderful), and savor the delicious food. The strawberry soup was a unique surprise and their scones are to die for. I love all the things that make up this 'tea' - the unique tea pots, lemon squeezers, handkerchief napkins, mixed cups/saucers/plates to the hats and boas you are invited to wear during tea. Kathy, the owner, has done everything to make you feel pampered and special. The service is very good, but not rushed or intrusive, and the teas and food, well they are delightfully delicious! I highly recommend this charming and whimsical tea room!

I recently took my niece to the Calabash Garden Tea Room for her birthday. We stayed in Myrtle Beach, but the drive was less than 15 minutes, which is wonderful if you want a few fun hours out of the sun! My niece is 10 and was completely delighted with the experience! The selection of teas was wonderful- I believe there were close to 80. I would highly recommend both the Bubblegum Tea (for both kids and adults) and the Vanilla Grapefruit Tea. My niece loved dressing up in the hats and boas; however it would have been nicer if they were not in the restroom for us to try them on. The tables were far enough apart to have conversations, but close enough to enjoy other guests' selection of hats. The food was very good, maybe a little less than I have seen in other tea rooms, but delicious none the less. The service was excellent and all of the staff were friendly. We definitely plan on making this an annual tea trip when we visit Myrtle Beach.

Had a wonderful, relaxing meal with delicious tea and impeccable service. The decor from the table settings to the walls was spot on and made for good conversation. I came home with some special tea available from the adorable Gift Shop. When my Ya Ya sisters and I visit NC again, we'll be sure to come back. It will be our tradition!

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

Four of my friends and myself went to the Tea Room while on a girls beach trip. We had such a good time the first visit, we decided to go again. We dressed up with hat's and boa's to heighten the experience. The food was great (especially the cupcakes) and the service was exceptional. I would recommend it to everyone.

There is something special about being pampered in an intimate space that is so charmingly decorated that you can't help but take a deep breath and sigh with pleasure. The Calabsh Garden Tea Room delivers all of that and a full tea service that is scrumptious from start to finish (and offers a gluten-free service that doesn't cut corners). As a full time resident, it's a joy to have this teashouse right around the corner!
