I just logged in today to leave a review for our visit yesterday with friends (and three children! they were very accommodating of the children and knew just how to pace things to keep the kids from climbing the walls, and we were there for the grand tea). We stopped in before going to the Morris Museum (just around the corner), and every single thing we had was fantastic. These are the only tea sandwiches I have ever enjoyed (the egg salad was deliciously herby), the chocolate mousse was rich, the tea was perfectly brewed, the scone was delightful (I tried the lemon poppy seed and the butter brickle my husband ordered) and the Devonshire cream mentioned below was impressively fresh (fresh enough there was some visible whey on the plate, perhaps accounting for Arielle's impression it was spoiled? it was delicious to me and I certainly didn't get ill, nor did anyone else with me). We intend to go back often as a sort of informal tea time and a show with the museum's theater program.

I came here for my birthday with some friends. The atmosphere is very cute and quaint. I was not very impressed with the food however. My clotted cream seemed sour or spoiled. I was not very thrilled. Not sure if I would come back nor would this be my first choice for afternoon tea.

If you want a wonderful venue for your daughter's Bridal Shower, then you must have it at the Cosy Cupboard Tea Room in Morristown, NJ. On May 17th 2014 I had my daughter Rebecca's shower there for 36 guests. Mr. Howard and staff helped facilitate my Alice in Wonderland themed party.It could not have been any lovlier. I decorated his already beautiful tea room with just a splash of nicknacks for the theme. The menu was incredible with 2 choices of soup, a salad, customized tea sandwiches, a salmon tart, 2 choices of scones and a beautifully decorated themed cake to order. Mr. Howard picked 4 teas that were all delicious and unique. In addition, chef Tom was hired to come in and do a wonderfully scrumptious crepe station along with demonstation. All were delicious. My guests were enchanted ... (more)

We were so disappointed in the service and unsophisticated demeanor of the personnel of this tea room. The food tasted good but lacked in quantity. I was looking forward to a ritualistic English-Victorian style service with the 3-tiered tea cake server that allows guests to sample delicacies and taste more than one sandwich piece per person. However, the service was an American - 3 course style. We received a single plate each with 5 rationed mini-sandwiches each. 30 minutes later, it was followed by one scone each on a clean plate. Our last course was dessert. I was hoping for a plate of miniature pastries to redeem the meal, but this was not so. For example, my mother received a 3-inch peach tart cut in half.

Thank you so much for the amazing job you did with our daughter's baptism tea luncheon. We were so impressed with your planning and execution of the day, and we can honestly say there is not a single thing we woud change! The tea was excellent, as were all the food courses, and the private room was very nicely appointed. We have gotten feedback from many of our guests, and they agree. We are so pleased that we chose the Cosy Cupboard. Thanks again for everything. We will surely see you again soon!

Many thanks again for setting up everything so nicely for Katrina's bridal shower last Sunday. The staff were very attentive & helpful, not to mention the flair your Dad delivered to add charm for our guests, the majority of whom were experiencing their very first time to an English tea afternoon. It had been a memorable event for all of us especially for Katrina. I'm so glad we hosted the event at Cosy Cupboard. Many thanks again for your attentive assistance.

We arranged a party in honor of my sister-in-law for 20 women, most who had never attended a tea before. The Howards' and their staff did a wonderful job making sure all the guests were well taken care of from the moment we arrived. Everything went beautifully and the ladies could not stop raving about the place and how they couldn't wait to come back. The atmosphere is lovely and not overly decorated. My favorite part of the tea is always the scones with each person getting their own individual bowl of clotted cream and jam. Thanks so much James and Vincent!!!

My friends and I on a dreary, rainy Friday afternoon had the Grand Tea in this lovely teahouse. We were greated by Mr. James Howard, the owner, and he escorted us into the lovely Victorian dining room. The service was wonderful. We enjoyed several varieties of tea with the fresh tomato basil soup followed by a wonderful salad. We enjoyed the variety of tea sandwiches and then we had scones with cream and jam. Mr. Howard explained some of his vast knowledge of tea to us. We then were served a variety of dessert, which was enjoyed by all! It was a delightful afternoon!

When my husband Gene and I were in the mood for a nice cup of tea to refresh our spirits and take away the gloom of a late January afternoon, we were fortunate to find the Cosy Cupboard Tea Room on Old Turnpike Road in scenic Morritown. Little did we know what a rare treat lay in store for us. Not only did we find the delicious and soothing tea we were seeking, we also discovered a magical place where beauty reigned and good taste ruled the day.
We were greeted by James, the warm and friendly proprietor, who treated us like old friends and in the course of an enriching, delightful conversation quoted Henry James, shared stories about his amazing family, and introduced us to one of his friends, a beautiful woman and former M.D., Unjeria Jackson, who recently wrote a book about her per...

I was very happy because I chose Cosy Cupboard. My mom & I were in about 2 months ago (also served by Vinnie) and we loved the food, atmosphere & service then too. Thanks for a lovely afternoon! See you soon. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Where do you go when you want to unwind? Take a time out from life or just enjoy a private conversation without the distractions of tragedy and stress plaguing many of us in recent days?

Can't think of that perfect place? I can. About a month ago, I stumbled onto a cozy afternoon tea room in Morristown, New Jersey called 'The Cozy Cupboard'.
I discovered this lovely tea room because my wife is a big tea fan, and I thought it would be a nice thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.
I personally love the home made scones. I've been told people travel from miles away for these delights

I discovered this cozy little tea house through teamap.com while on a recent trip to PA.
Everything about The Cozy Cupboard is enchanting. The decor is warm and inviting. The tea was very well prepared and the tea sandwiches artistically arranged on the floral Royal Albert china plates.
I indulged in the scrumptious Iced Poppy scone and decadant chocolate mousse.
Both James Howard, the proprietor and his son Vinnie were welcoming, attentive and engaging.
My only regret is that I'm from the Boston area and can not return as often as I would like. This tea house is a 'must do'.

I really enjoyed my afternoon tea. However, I felt the service was a little slow and we didn't receive a pot of tea we requested, we didn't make a fuss since we we waited so long and were ready to leave so we let it go. I wasn't impressed that the creamer dish on our table had quite a bit of dust in it. Overall I would go back, the staff was very friendly and seemed to be willing to accomodate our requests. The soup was delcious as well as the salad, sandwiches and scone. I didn't care for my dessert, but it could have just been my choice.
