What a wonderful surprise I received coming to Pamelas. Not only was the atmosphere suburb but I found my long lost best friend from high school. What a joyous day it turned out from both of us.

WOW! What a treasure this place is !Each time we have been to one of Pamela's teas, we have been overjoyed ! And now that Pamela and George have moved into the historic Bell Mansion, things have gotten even better ! The exquisite Victorian decor and obvious attention to every detail is matched by the lively personalities of the owners. Pamela and George put on the best presentation with a spirit that shows their love for what they do.They make every tea event a day to truly remember.And the Christmas dinner and tea was unbelievable. From the ambiance to the great food and tea, to an incredible music presentation . Pamela,your iano playing is second to none and your sister Dorie ,who flew in for the occasion has the absolute most beautiful voice I have ever heard.There was not a dry eye in the sold out place ! People left there feeling so warm and uplifted, a night never to be forgotten. Pamela's Victorian tea and music is a rare treasure.

- Peter 03/28/14

Tearoom Response
Peter, It was wonderful to read your enthusiastic review! We will never forget your smiling faces as your beautiful family tried on hats, and enjoyed the etiquette presentation, even Jackson had a hat on!
We strive to do our best to please our guests, and of course one of the ways we do that is through music. Dorinda Walsh was the finest soloist we have ever featured at the Mansion, and it would be great if she lived nearby so we could have her come sing at least once a month!
We look forward to the day when you can come see us again, and it will be with much rejoicing!

Pamela's Victorian Tearoom is my most favorite place to take my friends! I have taken three groups there already and have a few more yet to go. The tea rooms are full of grace and charm. Everyone feels special and spoiled by the hostess and host. This is a must for fun!

Pamela & George provided a warm & wonderful High Tea last night! The mansion is lovely (and lovingly decorated for Christmas). Pamela is extremely knowledgeable about the Victorian era, the queen and customs. The food was delicious and the musical entertainment was great.

Spent the evening with a group of friends at Pamela's Tea Café with a High Christmas Tea. Wonderful evening! Pamela is the perfect Hostess, we could not have asked for a nicer evening. The food & tea were excellent along with the Victorian décor. To make the evening even more perfect, Pamela played the piano and led us with a sing-a-long of Christmas music. Lovely time.

If haven't visited Pamela & George in their new home at the historic Bell Mansion in Bellwood, PA, make plans to do so soon! Not only will you be warmly greeted by your lovely & gracious hostess, Pamela, treated to a delicious lunch prepared by your host George, & warmed from head to toe by your own personal pot of fragrant tea (as well as by the flawless hospitality!), but you will do so surrounded by the gracious atmosphere of a by-gone era!

Pamela's Victorian Tea and Music at the Bell Mansion is a place everyone should visit. I went there with my childhood friend, Dana, and we had such a lovely time. We enjoyed everything. The food is delicious, the tea is sooo tasty, the atmosphere is cozy, and Pamela and her husband are so much fun and make everyone feel like they are at home! If you are looking for a nice time, someplace to take your friend to talk and relax, and have some tea, please go to Pamela's Victorian Tea and Music at the Bell Mansion! Thank you Pamela and we can't wait to return! SMILES

My childhood friend and I had THE MOST delightful experience at Pamela's Victorian! It is such a charming tea room. The food and service were both outstanding! Pamela is very engaging and personable, and she goes out of her way to ensure that her guests have an amazing tea room experience.
The décor is captivating too - so much to see! The added touches - such as allowing guests to borrow hats and accessories; and allowing guests to select their own tea pots/tea cups also adds to the experience. I HIGHLY recommend Pamela's Victorian. I look forward to visiting the Altoona area again so that I can embark upon Pamela's Victorian again! My experience there more than surpassed my expectations too - I assure you that you won't be disappointed if you visit Pamela and The Bell Mansion.

- Dana 10/20/13

Tearoom Response
Thank you so much Dana for the lovely review! It certainly was a pleasure having your and your delightful friend on Saturday.

We had THE most lovely Sunday afternoon visiting Pamela's Victoria Tea and Music. Pamela welcomed us in to her tea room with the warmest greeting and tour of the lovely Bell Mansion. We then giggled our way through choosing silly hats and scarves to match to wear while we sipped out tea. The look, the feel, the tea, the yummy treats and most of all Pamela make this place a true gem! If you are looking for a completely delightful and magical experience, I highly recommend a visit to Miss Pamela and her Tea Room.

I had such an unparalleled experience that it would be hard for another tearoom to surpass it, and as a travel agent I've been to tea rooms all over the world.

Pamela did a tea for 100 ladies at our Mother's Day event at our personal care home, and it was wonderful! Great food, music, she brought hats for all to wear, and the residents loved her! I would recommend Pamela at Bell Mansion for any music, tea party, or even for her to come talk about tea etiquette. She is highly entertaining and a genuinely nice person, who loves what she does, and it shows!

Pam & George have a wonderful place. Choosing a special tea cup and tea hat from their collection is half the fun! Pam will tell the cup's story or something fun about the hat you've chosen. They're wonderful hosts with a way of making you feel welcome. Our group had a special treat today when Pam shared a couple of musical numbers for us. Excellent tea, excellent food, excellent atmosphere! I strongly recommend it.

Pamela's Victorian Cafe And Music is a wonderful place to come for a relaxing lunch. Pamela greets you as you walk into a room of Victorian splendor; tastefully decorated by Pamela. The food is delicious and freshly prepared by her husband, George. Delectable to the palate and tastefully arranged on beautiful china. Choose one of the many delicious teas and it will be served to you in a teapot and teacup of your choosing from an array of lovely china patterns. Going to Pamela's Victorian Cafe and Music is truly a wonderful experience and one you will remember and treasure for a very long time.

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

I love this place! I was feeling blue (because of one of the places I frequented had closed) when a friend told me about Pamela's Victorian Cafe and Music. I am ever so thankful that she did. What a wonderful place! The food and tea are delicious! There's a little room with a child's table and chairs for my young girls to sit and enjoy their tea and sandwiches as well. I recently attended a Mother's Day tea and what a delight it was. We had a salad and when it comes to salads, I'm a bit of a salad dressing snob. I only like Ranch dressing. This particular salad already had the dressing on it. 'Oh boy!' I thought and I figured I'd try my best to pick around it. I was so wrong. The dressing was very light, and the salad was absolutely delicious! (I ate it all) George read some Mother's Day poems for us. Pamela played the piano beautifully. (So much so, that my daughter has requested lessons.) This place is truly a treasure.

- Jaime Henderson 05/14/13

Jaime,
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you found us, and can help brighten your day after the other place closed!

Glad your family will have their Christmas party with us! Blessings always!

Today I had my first visit to Pamela's Victorian Cafe & Music. My cousin Rose Woodring Balasco took me there for my birthday. I have never gone to a tea house before and it was just lovely! I had a wonderful salad that was very fresh and tasty, and a cranberry scone that was perfect. George recited a poem for me, and Pamela played and sang me two songs on the piano. At the end Pamela brought me out a delicious tea-cup dessert. It was a lemon cake with fresh cream. Rose and I split it. What a wonderful time I had! Thank you again, Rose, Pamela and George!

- April Lloyd 04/19/13

Tearoom Response
April, thank you for your beautiful review. It was a pleasure serving and meeting you and making your birthday special. As George says, you ARE special, so we try to help you to REALLY know that! We love your cousin Rose, and we are so glad she brought you to visit with us. I'm glad you enjoyed the salad and the music too. Come see us soon and God bless you!
