Upon my daughter's engagement, there was only one place that I would consider to host her bridal shower, and that was The New Leaf Tearoom. From the moment of our arrival, the servers were quick to help us to unload packages from our car, despite the sprinkling of rain. Once inside, everything was made ready for us. The savories were generous and tasty, and the tea was full-bodied and freshly brewed. The scones were a great favorite and made with seasonal berries. Some of my guests had never been to a tearoom, but upon experiencing such a memorable afternoon, plan on making reservations for return visits. I cannot thank Phyllis, Peggy, and Judy enough for making this once-in-a-lifetime event a treasure trove of beautiful and cherished moments.

Dear Peggy, Phyllis, and the other two caring ladies(whose names I have forgotten, sorry),



Stan and I had a totally charming experience at The New Leaf Tea Room this afternoon. I did not feel like coming out of that atmosphere back into the real world! Thank you for making us feel so welcome and pampered. We loved the décor and ambiance of each of the rooms ---- how we wish we had heard about this place a long time ago. Everything about the New Leaf Tea Room is so perfect , it is located in such a nice part of town and is so easy for us to get to. I think we will become regulars from now on. We will be spreading the news to all our friends here in Moorestown.

This was my first experience in going to a tea room. I loved it!
The food, the service, and the gift
shop were all fabulous! I have told
all my friends and relatives about
the New Leaf Tea Room, and I look
forward to going there again in the
near future. Also, since it was my
birthday, the staff went out of their way to make sure it was an
especially happy one. I could not
have chosen a better place to
celebrate my special day!!!

Charming and delightful! My mom requested to come here for her birthday this year. She had previously been here for the themed Queen Victoria tea and did nothing but rave about her experience, so of course we had to come back. Phyllis is extremely pleasant and accommodating to all her guests needs. The food is delicious from the homemade soups, tea sandwiches, scones, and desserts. We had such a wonderful experience we went back 2 weeks later for the themed Downton Abbey tea, which was excellent. I look forward to coming back! Love!

New Leaf is just the best tea experience ever, the best fresh brewed teas, the best soups, salad, sandwiches, and absolutely the best SCONES on the planet. The atmosphere is Victorian Elegance to the max, and the gift shop is full of unique findings for very reasonable prices. Whatever special girl occasions I have, Phyllis and Joan are there to meet them with sytle and grace. If you have never been here, it is worth the trip. And now Phyllis has added The Downton Teas to entertain her guests. What a treat! The appearance of the dowager Countess played so well by Ms Dupuy will have you laughing your bustle off and shaking your fans in meaningful messages to the opposite sex. What a romp. Don't miss it.

My husband, friends and I, spent a wonderful afternoon at the New Leaf Tea Room yesterday. The theme was Downton Abbey. We were greeted warmly by the owner and seated at a beautifully appointed table. Not only was the food delicious, we were treated to a historical portrayal of the Dowager Countess of Grantham!
Although we had to travel a considerable distance to this Tea Room, we will surely return.

I had my future daughter in-law bridal shower there. It was wonderful. Everything was perfect.
The women enjoyed picking out their own hats to wear. The tea sandwiches were scrumptious and the teas were wonderful. They even had a chair and table set up for the bride to open her gifts. Everyone had a delightful time. I could not have been so pleased. If you are looking for a place to have a party this is it!!!!

We, the Posse, arrived here on Thursday for a wonderful high tea. There are 4 of us that love visiting tearooms and this was an occasion with two of us just having returned from a trip to Ireland/Scotland. We were very impressed with the decor, sandwiches, scones (out of this world) and service, to say nothing of the delicious desserts. Lovely Owner, Phyllis, made sure everything was perfect for us and it was. The only item we felt missing was the tea cozies we find in many of the tearooms we've visited. We will plan to return!

We had my baby shower at the New Leaf Team Room in 2008. I just moved to the area and decided to go back today with my mother in law and daughter who is now 5. We absolutely love this place. We have been to many tea rooms and this blows them all away. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is lovely and very victorian. The staff is sooo sweet and the owner talks to us all the time. My daughter loved the special sandwiches for her it was just perfect. I am definitely going to have her birthday party here next year.

Some of us may never get the opportunity to experience the joy of having High Tea in England. Nevertheless, you will feel like you're in England at the New Leaf Tea Room. For many years now my daughter and I have made it a point to spend our special events at the New Leaf Tea Room. So on this special weekend, once again we made new memories at our special place. Back in the 70’s I lived in England for 6 wonderful years and visited many Tea Rooms for afternoon Tea. The New Leaf Tea Room takes me back to that special time in England. The décor is a pleasure to the eyes. The choice of tea is always a delight for my taste buds. The salad, soup, finger sandwiches, not to mention their famous scones and delicious desserts are pure joy for your taste buds. The staff and service is top-notch. Th... (more)

My sisters and I held mom's 80th birhday at the New Leaf last week and without a doubt this is the finest tearoom we have ever visited. We go everywhere and this was like stepping back in time to a beautiful garacious Victorian parlour. The ecclectic detail is everywhere- even antique teacups hanging from the crystal chandeliers. The food and presentation is wonderful and the staff made us feel like the royal family. The cucumber mint sandwhiches are the best. Can't wait to visit again. Thanks New Leaf for a treasured day.

We recently had a bridal shower at The New Leaf. The owner went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. The food was wonderful and plentiful. Some of my guests ordered hot chocolate. I have never seen hot chocolate like this before! It looked like a massive sundae topped with whipped ccream and special shaped marshmellows piled high inside of lovely tea pots. All of my guests were thrilled with the bridal tea shower. The Garden Room was so beautiful. I would highly recommend The New Leaf for a special occassion.

From the moment you walk throught the door you know you have entered a special place, the attention to detail was amazing, our food was deliciou and the scones were to die for...our servers were wonderful and made us feel special. This will not be my last visit to the New Leaf, before I left I made a reservation to bring my out of town guest to experience the pleasure of afternoon tea. Thank you once again for this delightful vist.

8 of us went to New Leaf tea room for my moms birthday. I made the reservation atleast 3 weeks earlier. We drove over an hour to try this tea room. As we arrived and the ladies were getting situated and using the restroom, I was told by the owner to hurry up, hurry my party up pick hats quickly and get seated because a big bridal shower was coming in and they wanted to get started. It was rude and abrupt. As our tea started we had a potato soup that was delicious, the tea came next which was so week it had no taste. The tiered presentation was beautiful.

I visited this tea house late in 2012. The ocassion was a special birthday party for one of the 5 women who attended. We had made reservations well in advance, then confirmed the date/time within 48 hours of our party. The food was was very good. But for reasons I still don't understand, the owner and waitress could not have been ruder. I handed over more than $150 for an uncomfotable, embarrassing afternoon of insults at their hands. I would not recommend this as an adventure to anyone who prefers to be treated with any degree of dignity.

Recently I took a friend of mine to the New Leaf Tea Room in Riverton, N.J. to celebrate a milestone birthday. My friend had a perfectly delightful afternoon. The service was excellent. JoAnn and Emily were courteous, attentive, and extremely well-organized. The presentation of the teas, sandwiches, and desserts was beautifully executed.As well as the food being delicious, there is a great variety of sandwiches, desserts, and teas. This Victorian tea room is beautifully decorated with an enticing Gift Shop. My friend loved being able to choose a lovely hat to wear making her feel like royalty! My friend had such a memorable birthday. Congratulations to Phyllis, the owner, for providing us with an exceptionally high quality tea room. The New Leaf is without a doubt #1! We can't wait to visit again!!

I visited this tea room in december 2012. The customer service was horrible. Phyllis who i believe is the manager was absolutely rude because my invites did not show up despite the fact that she made me make a deposit on my reservatio one week prior. The place is potentially good but the management needs to beef up on customer relations. I was embarassed at the rude behavior and treatment and the people i invited were also embarassed as well.

I had afternoon teas there on this June with my American friends during visiting the US from Japan. The service was top-notch! The presentation, teas, food (salad & dressing, sandwiches, cakesc) were the best I have ever tasted before in the US. The staff were very nice, attentive, and organized! I think itfs because of the owner, Phyllis, who has a sense of caring very muchcthey were just so nice. Above all, the scones were top-notch I have ever eaten in my whole life!
After returned to Japan, I was dying for that scones and searched online the one has similar tastec.finally I was able to find a little similar one to that of the scones I had in the tea room, but itfs still not exactlycI wish the tea room is more closer or I could even import them!

The food was superb and the service was excellent. This tea room is larger than any I have been to before. There are even ladies' and men's hats that one can borrow for tea if desired.

I wish this place were closer because I would go here again if it were.
