I had my son's and future daughter-in-law's wedding shower at Pickwick Society. It was wonderful! The food and the service was great. The day was absolutely perfect! I could not have chosen a better place to have their wedding shower.

I happened upon Frankfort because I was visiting an old high school friend who now lives in the Chicago area. I was visiting from France and was pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful tea room in this small American town, I love the warm atmosphere, and was very well received by Cindy, the owner. I hope to be back before long.

I am lucky enough to live 10 minutes away from the Pickwick tea room and I go for a cup of tea and a scone as often as I can. Not only is the food delicious, and the teas varied, but the people who work there are simply wonderful, and make the whole difference.

My friends and I had a lovely afternoon at the Pickwick society tea room. We were there for a high tea luncheon. The food was delicious and the filling. A very pleasant atmosphere with nice background music. The variety of teas was endless. Everyone in our group tred different teas and loved them. If you are red for a great experience, put on your hat and gloves and have some tea at Pickwick Tea Room.

I love Pickwick their tea variety is pretty broad and a lot of the teas there i never knew existed. As for the good the scones have to be the best there although the rest of the food is good ,but it is lacking just a little variety. Over all the service is great with that Victorian home feel to it and the staff are very friendly people. Pickwick is truly number 1 in Illinois!

What a wonderful place for an event!!!! I hosted a bridal shower at the Pickwick Society Tea Room and they were so accomidating and just lovely people! Each guest got their own pot of tea and the variety of teas to choose from was extensive. Many of us shared with one another, so as to be able to sample several of the great varieties and the teas were wonderful. Also the food was outstanding and the experience as a whole was unique and very special.

What a joy it was to experience the Tearoom! I recently lost my youngest child and I desired a calming, warm, and nostalgic environment to meet with a dear friend. We both received our wish, consumed red tea and coffee, great scones, and the bacon and lorraine quiche. Our service was great, the table and chair setting was intimate, and the colorful antiques reminded me of the preciousness of life. My palate and heart were well nourished! A visit to the Tearoom will become a monthly outing.

This was our first time here and we had a wonderful time! My piece of advise is to give yourself a few hours here. We only gave ourselves an hour and wish we had more time! Great atmosphere, GREAT food and tea! Endless pot of tea comes with the high tea. They made great tea recommendations to us, the strawberry champagne tea was delicious! We even signed up for one of their Timely Tea events! Cant wait to go back!

I am a frequent guest at pickwick, I go for the scones, as a person who loves to bake, can say they are fantastic ..I love the tea selection and presentation. One of the other reasons I go so often is the unmatched atmosphere. There are few places as quaint and welcoming, I get so sick of freezing in Starbucks or not being able to hear the person your lunching with over the commotion at Panera .

If you act really excited, they will give you a little card to visit this website and help promote them. If you are not all smiles, they don't mention it.....hmmmm....guess that would be why they are #1 because it definitely did not live up to the hype. Sorry.

I am only sorry that I didn't know about your establishment sooner! The orange spice chai tea was better than I expected. All the finger sandwiches were very original and flavorful and so many to try! I will be back with friends and family! Ten stars!!

Un-impressed is what I was today. Scone was best part of lunch and liked the egg salad and banana bread with lemon curd. Also, I am not a fan of smelling teas just seemed weird to do that. Did not go away with that full feeling that I expected

We four ladies had all been to England at one time or another, and had enjoyed Devonshire's clotted cream with scones and tea. What a treat to find the Pickwick Society Tearoom with its charming ambiance, friendly service, amazing selection of teas, and totally delicious scones, muffins, quiche, and yes, clotted cream! This has become my new favorite place to bring friends!

We held a Bridal Shower Tea at the Pickwick Society Tearoom. The event was lovely,charming and very enjoyable. Though there was a large group,everyone could choose their own pot of tea from more choices than one could imagine. With individual pots rather than just cups, guests could share. The quiche and scone choices were freshly baked and delicious . The service was excellent. We were very pleased with everything. The perfect venue for a shower !

The Pickwick Society Tea Room was very enjoyable. Once you sit down your server lets you smell the tea you want. I find this very helpful for someone who knows nothing about tea. The tea I had was the amber dragon which was delicious. The foods we got were all very tasty and it was fun getting to try the different foods and it was beautifully served. The staff were cheerful and knowledgeable about the tea. I would recommend this to anyone. I would definitely go back. : )

I took my daughter there before our baby was to come and had a lovely lunch. The owner saw she was pregnant and made sure to tell her not to order green tea as expectant mothers shouldn't drink it. We were never rushed and we enjoyed looking at all the cute items on display.

My Mom and I had the most charming and enjoyable lunch at Pickwick this afternoon! We ordered Jo's Platter which was a sampling of tea sandwiches and pastries. Each one was better than the last! I couldn't pick a favorite! My mom had the strawberry champagne tea and I had the vanilla cream rooibos- both were absolutely wonderful! The ambience, decor and staff also added to the positive experience we had. I can't wait to bring friends and family back!

The Pickwick Society Tea Room is simply beautiful and the customer service is excellent. I recently held my Birthday Celebration for 45 people and everyone was simply amazed at the peaceful/serene atmosphere, good food, and excellent customer service.I truly adore the owner and the actual servers because they make you feel extremely special and their afternoon tea is wonderful. I am planning to host future events at this Tea House.
