Cosy Cupboard has a special place in my heart--because its owner, James, has a big heart himself. Every year he generously donates a Grand Tea to be auctioned off to help numerous charities and schools, including the one I'm directly involved with, which provides critical services to children with autism. It is always a highly bid-on auction item, mostly because Cosy Cupboard is known in the area for its so-quaint atmosphere and its wonderful foods and teas. The apple butter and cinnamon scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam are really good and the tomato soup is some of the best I ever tasted. The tea sandwiches had a nice assortment. The Grand Edwardian tea was a good value--I couldn't finish it all and I have a large appetite! I had the Darjeeling (loose tea) with it was rich and flavorful. Another really nice thing: they don't rush you and you aren't crammed in. So if you want to go with some friends and have some quality time, this is the place to go.

I hosted a baby shower. The theme was a Classic Winnie the Pooh. The event was held Nov. 15 and the experience was everything I hoped for. James made it a true event, everyone had a wonderful time. The food and service were excellent. The scones were absolutely the best I have ever had. What made the day such an wonderful experience was the staff. I recommend that you consider the Cosy Cupboard for your next event.

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.

We held my sister's bridal shower here and I was blown away but the quality of the food, tea selection, service, and ambiance. Everyone had a wonderful time and I will definitely be returning.

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)

I just wanted to thank you for helping us celebrate Jessica's upcoming wedding yesterday. The Shower was exactly as we wanted and your staff did a terrific job. Everyone remarked that it was one of the nicest showers they had ever attended.


Wishing you and all at Cosy Cupboard a Mother's Day crowd as pleased as we were.


Thanks again,

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.
