Nice way to break up a long drive to Chicago. Food was excellent and beautiful. Pies were delicious, husband loved having rhubarb pie (not often served in Texas). Owner Bonnie was very nice and welcoming.

Bonnie just catered my daughter's wedding. My husband and I loved Bonnie. The food was excellent. She knows exactly what to do and is so willing to change things at the last minute. Bonnie puts you at ease in a stressful situation. We had numerous compliments on the food and the presentation.

Charming ambiance and lovely table settings. My cup of mango tea was perfection. Love the 'taste of dessert'--just the right size!

'Beautiful' was my first thought as our beverages were placed in front of us. I had already read the quips and quotes noticed around the room and on the table next to the flowers. 'WOW' came next as our plates were placed on the table. 'This looks too good to eat!'....but I enjoyed every bite of my chicken croissant, broccoli soup, and fruit. The rhubarb creme pie left my mind blank as I tasted the half piece as part of my meal. It was luscious beyond words!!

The catering service and quality was superb. The freshness of the crisp salad and the breadsticks were a delight. The main courses, lasagna and chicken alfredo, were exquisite. I highly recommend this catering company.

What a great location for the reunion of 60 year friends. One couple from 60 miles north and one couple from 350 miles south, who was in Central Illinois for his 65th high school reunion. They met 60 years ago as first year teachers, now separated by the miles, until yesterday.

I've now been to this tearoom 3 times... twice with my mom, who lives in Paxton, and once with a friend of mine from Chicago. Each time, the service has been so gracious (one of the times they allowed us to come in when they were actually finished with lunch service)! My friend and I are both foodies (she's a CIA grad and a professional chef). The food exceeded our expectations...it was beautifully prepared AND presented! We broke the 'no desserts' rule and it was worth it! The tea room has a country feel. It's comfortable and charming. I'm a tea drinker. My 4 stars in variety of teas was more about the 'level' of teas available, which is good, but not excellent. The variety, though, IS excellent, and quite satisfying. There is also a little gift shop. I bought a tea pot there & love it. Overall? What a lovely time I've had... each time I've been at Country Thyme Tea Room!
