Eat lunch before you go for a luncheon. Not much food served. Not much variety, only 3 items served. Out of luck if you have allergies.

This is a small cozy place. It was very enjoyable. I would highly recommend. Make a reservation. We went with 2 teens, 1 senior citizen and 1 adult. All loved it! Enjoyed Paul, the server and host. He explained everything that he was served and how it was made. We all appreciated that. Our group likes to try different tea places (Drake Hotel, Pickwick Society in Frankfort, Russian Tea Room) and this was our favorite! We especially liked the different courses. They were brought out separately and when you are ready--not everything at once like the Drake.

Along with my daughter-in-law Kate I hosted a baby shower for my other daughter-in-law Morgan. the Pine Cone Tea Room was the perfect venue for this occasion. I love how they change the decor and the menu for the season. We enjoyed the beautiful Fall decor and the Fall menu. A favorite was the pumpkin soup and the caramel apple tea. There were other loose tea and tea bag selections. The tea savories
and scones as well as desserts were all to die for! It is such a cozy atmosphere that you feel you are in your own home but everything is done for you!!! The service was fantastic. The server explained everything that was being served to each table but all in a timely fashion. the own er Pam is gracious and accommodating. I highly recommend this tearoom for a wonderful experience.

My mom hosted my baby shower here a few days ago, and it couldn't have been a more perfect venue for the event. The charming atmosphere and attentive service made all the difference, and a variety of teas (double lemon apricot iced tea, loose teas, and bagged tea) pleased a variety of palates. The gourmet food was incredible--made with fresh herbs and vegetables from the owners' garden. Even my foodie friends were impressed. I would definitely recommend this place!

I hosted a bridal shower for my niece last weekend. It was a HUGE success - the food and service were amazing and the setting was quaint and cozy for the 27 guests. Pam was easy to work with long distance!
Hope to return soon!

My friends and I first went to this tea room for my birthday. The decor is so beautiful and unusal. I recommned a late PM visit as the ambiance is so enhanced when dusk arrives and the sparkly lights shimmer and the lights are dimmed. The food is amazing and also unique to what I've had at other tea rooms. Pam, the owner, is a creative & inspired cook (and has quite a fashion flair with her gorgeous vintage hats and clothing). She and her husband Paul, are gracious & attentive hosts. We went back for a soup class last night and learned how to make 5 AMAZING soups. We helped to chop and dice along with Pam in the kitchen and then, when the soups were finished, we got to enjoy each of them with a pot of freshly brewed tea and Lucy's (Pam's mom) famous sweet bread. We had a wonderful time and took home some great recipes. Both visits were exceptional. This place is a gem and I will continue to return for the food, the atmosphere and the experience!

The cozy environment was perfect for the baby shower we had here. The room was seasonally decorated with snowflakes and many lovely teapots. The 4 course tea menu included a great winter lentil soup, savories, and sweets. There was a choice of a seasonal tea [cinnamon vanilla] as well as a hot bishop [warm fruited beverage]. Everything was freshly made. Pam was very flexible to work with and the service was very personal. Would highly recommend. We were worried about parking but there are
two free lots very near.

What fun! and perfect for my daughter's baby shower. The whole atmosphere was exactly what we wanted plus the food was very special. I've had many calls from the people who attended - they will be going there on their own. I'm so happy we found this gem. Thank you!
