We've traveled to many a tea room. This was beyond excellent. If we could rate the hosts, they would be off the charts. Not everyone can run a tea room. The Hardings are an A++. They have what it takes to host, their hospitality is perfect. The food was amazingly delicious. Unique and excellent. They made us feel right @ home. We will definitely return.

My sisters and friends always enjoy a wonderful evening with the two of you dear ones in your lovely tea room. Wednesday was no exception. It was a very special time for our group. The delicious food, your great hospitality and warmth of your furnishings and accompanying dishes, all join to afford us a splendid time. Thank you so very much, especially for the scrumptious red pepper soup!
We'll be back again soon!

I have had the opportunity to visit the Cross and Bluebird Tea & Gift Shop at the Historic Tate Farm on several occasions, and each time, I have been truly impressed by the level of service, attention to detail, and both quality and quantity of food and beverage. Laurie and Roger's welcoming attitude makes each guest feel at home, and their extensive knowledge of Civil War history provides for some very interesting conversation. Several varieties of tea and typically five courses of hand-prepared hors d'oeuvres and baked goods leave guests completely satisfied. Seasonal table settings and beautiful, antique tea sets (also available for purchase) further compliment the experience. Would highly recommend this tea shop to anyone looking for a unique, memorable, and tasty experience!

Having visited a few tea rooms in the US, UK, Russia and Turkey, Cross & Bluebird is hands-down the BEST tea room I've ever experienced. The hosts (Laurie and Roger) are the perfect combination with a genuine passion for what they do. Their hospitality, friendship, amazing tea, and phenomenal food are second-to-none...all in a truly historic setting. Although a bit of a drive for us from DC (we first came on a recommendation from a friend), it is well worth the effort. We've now been twice in the last few months and certainly plan to visit again in the near future!

We invited our neigborhood friends and their husbands to the Holiday Candlelight Tea with singer John DuRant. I can't tell you how delighted we all were to be included in the singing of Christmas carols!
It was an evening of fun and festivity that we won't soon forget! The holiday meal was delicious, especially the mincemeat tarts and the holiday teas. Laurie's 'English Trifle' was a wonderful ending to the meal!
Well done to two wonderful and thoughtful hosts! One of the best Tearooms we have been to and we have traveled to many! A+

My Mother and I recently had the pleasure of having tea at the Cross and Bluebird Tea Shop. The food, the atmosphere, and the presentation were all top notch. Our host and hostess, Roger and Laurie. couldn't have been nicer. The tea selections were excellent and the food was all homemade and absolutely delicious!! Add to that, General and Mrs. Grant just happened to be there as well. Tea and history - a perfect afternoon!! I will definitely return and will highly recommend this lovely tea shop.

I had the privilege of visiting the Cross and Bluebird Tea Room today with my friends.
I have never enjoyed any tea room this much. The atmosphere, the service, the food, the overall experience was well worth the drive from Maryland. I would highly recommend this tea room to everyone!
With each course, there will be a smile and a memory!!!

Having traveled from Michigan for the 150th in Gettysburg, we were dying to try out this tea room.
We found Roger and Laurie to be very welcoming and accomodating hosts.
Their combined knowledge of history and their attention to detail made this a most memorable visit.
We were expecting dainty little tea sandwiches and were pleasantly suprised by a full Tea Luncheon!
A deep-dish quiche with an herbed side salad, a chilled cucumber-dill soup served in green depression cups, peach cobbler scones with the best lemon curd we ever tasted, and a dark chocolate brownie truffle cheesecake for dessert. Who could imagine all this food for only $22.00? We were even given take out boxes for our extra scones!
We stayed longer than expected and were suprised to hear that they only ... (more)

Enjoyable afternoon tea with family at the historic Tate Farm. Loved the welcoming hospitality and the beautiful table settings. Assorted pots of hot tea and a delicious variety of abundant food completed the afternoon. We also enjoyed strolling the gardens and grounds which are decorated with whimsical and creative touches. Thank you!

Had a little trouble finding the place. It doesn't look like the picture - the trees and scrubs are much larger now...but...it was so worth the u-turn! The teas were quite good. When they tell you that you may want to save a scone to take home...do it. The rest of the meal is quite tasty and bountiful. I took quite a nice amount of food home. The dessert was picture-worthy. Will def go back again.

I had a wonderful birthday celebration here with my family and friends and we LOVED, LOVED, LOVED our experience. Everything was exceptional from beginning to end. The owners (Laurie and Roger) really create a beautiful atmosphere. You can see the love that they have shine through in their food..simply divine!! I even found myself enjoying a sandwich that had black olives in it and I HATE black olives!! We already booked a return trip.

Having never been to the Cross and Bluebird Tea Room before, we drove up from Fairfax, VA to do some shopping at the outlets and then we went for Tea.
What a wonderful Tea experience we had! Starting with scones and tea, two kinds of scones were served with the best lemon curd we ever tasted! Roasted cauliflower & cheddar soup came topped with homemade croutons. A fresh tropical fruit salad was served in glass tea cups! Then came a tiered tray of tea sandwiches, some of which we had never tried before. As if we didn't have enough, we were served a lemon-blackberry roulade for dessert! Several teas were served, all very good, and hot.
We all agreed. The Cross and Bluebird Tea Room is our new favorite!
We will be back again - soon!
