I went for high tea with my family. I enjoyed the teas. My favorite was a tea called Mother's Bouquet and I also liked the Cinnamon tea. All of the food was homemade and delicious. I loved the scones and the tray of sandwiches. The desserts were also great especially the bourbon bread pudding. I had a great time with my family.

This is a wonderful tea house. I wanted to do something special for my mom this Motherís Day so we to the tea house for high tea to celebrate. This was our first visit to Candleberry Tea House and we absolutely loved it. The tea room has a warm cozy feel as you come in. There were flowers on our table and it was set with an assortment dishes containing everything you need for tea like fresh lemon, sugar cubes. The food was excellent. We had so much food we could hardly eat it all. There were 4 courses, scones, soup, sandwiches and then dessert. We each got our own pot of tea and the selection of teas is absolutely amazing. We got the blood orange and the motherís bouquet and loved both teas. We had a great time and will definitely go back. Thank you Andy and all the staff for a very memorable trip.

I took my Mother to Candleberry Tea Room for tea and desert for Mother's Day (we actually came on the Saturday before, as the Tea Room is closed on Sunday). Candleberry's is one of her favorite get-aways. We continue to be impressed by the warm and friendly atmosphere, the variety of teas, and the quality of the deserts--especially the most delicous coconut pie. Candleberry's cocount pie is Mom's favorite and is now my favorite also. Candleberry is truely a gem to be enjoyed.
