It was a spur of the moment and we were lucky enough to obtain a table for 2 this past Saturday as my best friend and I had plans to walk around Carlisle and visit some of our favorite shops. The tea was delightful and the food exquisite. The atmosphere is breathtaking and the staff are very eloquent.

This tea shop is absolutely incredible, from the atmosphere to the food and the tea! I have visited twice with a group of friends, and the staff were incredibly kind and friendly, as well as accommodating to the vegetarians in the group. The menu is different each month, but the quality of the food remains excellent--I'm particularly fond of the scones, and the salad is delicious (I don't usually enjoy salad, so I'm very impressed!). Of course, the tea is lovely as well. I really appreciate that you can try an unlimited number of the different varieties, with the only caveat being that you must finish a pot before requesting another tea. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, and I would definitely recommend visiting Camellia's if you have the chance!

My daughter took me to Camellias Tea Room for my birthday. We had a lovely tea, best ever! I had been there several times but my daughter had not, and she was blown away with the food, the excellent facility, the service and overall fun! This was a great birthday afternoon!

I have visited Camellia's 3 times in the past several months. Each visit has been absolutely wonderful. The staff is personable and always pleasant. The variety of teas, foods and decorations during the different seasons makes each experience unique. A trip to Camellia's is a terrific birthday or Christmas gift!

I have visited Camellia's tea parlor numerous times with family and friends. That we have visited often is testament in its self. I enjoy the atmosphere, the congeniality , the food,and even, as a man, the amount of the over all food received. Many thanks to the entire staff.

Came here December 2014. Beautifully decorated and the food was great! I'd definitely go back. There is even a small gift area.

First of all, I called at the last minute to make reservations for 4 and they were very accommodating. I had my family in from out of town (Chicago area) and we enjoyed every minute of it. We were able to sample from a wide selections of tea with unlimited refills. The courses were displayed eloquently and were homemade and delicious. Unfortunately, my husband was unable to go with us. My father joined us and he had a wonderful time. We visited the gift shop and we purchased some beautiful items from their shop. I will definitely be back and with my husband. Thank you for everything.

What a wonderful experience this was! The parlor was exactly as you would imagine for a relaxing tea lunch. The best part was the most spectacular scones I have ever tasted! The scones alone made the hour and a half drive well worth it, but we enjoyed all of the creative food on the menu. We also loved the gift shop! We will definitely be returning to enjoy your wonderful hospitality. Thank you!

Came here for tea with my mother and step-father. We were charmed by the lovely served, Kaylie, who was bubbling with charm and enthusiasm. Working in hospitality, I wish I could bottle her attitude and dispense it to my staff! The food was lovely - greatly enjoyed the Italian wedding soup and lavender scone. The idea of pairing cucumber with cottage cheese and watermelon with a dash of pepper was simply outstanding. Will definitely be back!

As you enter camellias you since you are going back in time. You see hats on the wall that you may borrow to wear, lace curtains etc. Each table is set with lovely China and silver. Every tea pot has a unique tea cozy. They offer several teas brewed to the best flavor and you may choose a different flavor with each refill. The foods were delicious and presented beautifully on tiered trays. I would recommend to anyone even if you do not enjoy tea.

The food and tea was excellent, the best teahouse I have been in. The menu had Interesting soups which one was the peanut butter soup. The atmosphere was the greatest of any teahouse. If you get in the area, it is a must to try.

Where ever I travel I always visit the local tearoom. Whether I'm in Pennsylvania, Boston, South Carolina, Virgina, Washington DC, or New York City I have found none that compares to Camellia'Sin Tea Parlor in Carlisle, PA. This tea house has really spoiled me and has set my expectations high for other tea rooms. An exceptional high tea must offer soup, salad, a variety of scones,lemon curd and whey (preferably homemade)is mandatory, a pile of delectable savories, unique desserts and a variety of loose leaf black teas (preferably Snow Flake or Pineapple Upside Down), including sugar cubes served with miniature tongs. The surroundings should be Victorian with linen table clothes and napkins, beautiful patterned tea services, elegant glasses, soothing background music, and a exquisite gift shop to meander through when tea is completed. Camilla Sin offers a superb high tea experience and I am always eager to return.

We just had my daughter's bridal shower at the tea room and Lin and staff were so wonderful. They all went above and beyond to make our guests feel special. They took into account dietary needs and personalized the experience by honoring our requests.
We highly recommend Camellia's for every special occasion.

Camillias is my favorite tearoom. I have been there many times. Lynn and her staff make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. The tea selection is amazing.....I have many favorites including snowflake and pineapple upside down cake. They have the most imaginative, delicious soups. My favorite is the butternut squash. The scones are out of this world, the best I've ever had. The sandwiches and desserts are just as amazing. This is one tea house you can't just go one time!!!!
