My friend of 44 years meet here as often as possible for many years. Sometimes as often as every month, and I drive 2 hrs 1 way; well worth the drive. We have been enjoying this tea room since it's original opening. The food and service are outstanding every visit. I had a baby shower for my daughter their; as she was expecting our 1st grandchikd. It was very memorable and can't wait for them to come home this fall, so we take our granddaughter there for her 1st real tea party. Love their new location too. My friend and I will be there tomorrow and can't wait!!!!

I love Pinkadilly, but something that could be improved is for table busing and moving the cart with dirty dishes out of site asap. Recently while there Crystal was bustling around doing a great job serving (it was BUSY), and another employee walked past a full cart of dirty dishes that she could have moved off the main dining room floor. I got the feeling the priority wasn't to bus the tables and keep the dining area neat, which does detract from the dining experience. Perhaps another staff member should be dedicated to busing tables and discreetly wiping them. (I'd also suggest not keeping Windex sitting on tables in site while people are dining.) Just a few formal touches would improve the most excellent food quality, attentiveness, and joy one experiences while at Pinkadilly.

This time I had the decaf Monk's Blend...a tasty tea. Our server was attentive without being in our way. The 3-teired assortment of food was delicious. The chicken salad and crab soup are two items not to be missed. I must say the vanilla scone was the best scone I have ever eaten! The other yummy one was chocolate chip, which I enjoyed at home later that day. Our tea service included 2 scones, chicken salad sandwich, bean wrap, tex-mex pie on mini-cornbread base, 3 desserts with grapes and orage slices for garnish.. And of course, a full pot of hot tea. All for $19.95 for the 'Princess' tea service. We will be going back soon to enjoy the cozy atmosphere. Almost forgot to tell you about the assortment of hats to browse and borrow, and the assortment of teas, etc for sale. Call to make your reservation!

I took my 5 1/2 yr. old granddaughter to Pinkadilly for the second time a couple of weeks ago. She loves going there as we do. She loves all the big floppy hats to try on and also the Little Miss tea tray with the wonderful variety of different goodies for her. Adults have a wonderful time there also - ladies as well as gentlemen. The service is always great, very friendly and very efficient. The food and the variety of teas - wonderful! If anybody ever complains of the noise, they need to remember; 'it's a tea party.' It's fun and everybody of any age will enjoy it. Would recommend Pinkadilly to anybody that wants to go to a tea party!

Thank you for the very special tea experience which you provided for my friends and me. After 'taking tea' a many places over the years, Pinkadilly Tea stands out as one of the best. EVERYTHING was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully! I would love to have the cream scone recipe, as it was wonderful!

Thank you for an afternoon of Tea pleasantries of all kinds. Every aspect of the Tea gave opportunities to build beautiful memories. Most favorite of all was the Vanilla Cream Scones. If you share recipes, I would be honored to receive one for Vanilla Cream Scones, as well as the one for Lemon Curd, which paired perfectly with the scone. Thank you for your love and devotion to the art of 'taking tea.'

Loose tea. Served in pots with tea cozies. Tasty selection of sandwiches and scones. Teapots and teacups for sale on display along the walls.

Menu offers a lower-priced tea for the 'little miss or mister' and as a result the place has a liberal sprinkling of children.

Despite a notice on the menu asking guests to keep it down as the acoustics were not the best in the tea room, we could barely hear each other over the chatter of the children. We finally just gave up on holding conversation, it was just too noisy.

So. if you are looking for a decent pot of tea and some tasty scones and wee sandwiches, you're in luck.

If you are looking for a calm, time-away-from-the-world experience, you may need to keep looking.

Well my family has returned after 2 years from lands far away. We have driven from Manassas, VA on several occasions to luncheon at Pinkadilly and to catch up with our friends there, the owner Kay, Brittney, and Christal and the rest of her impeccable serving staff. We missed them all terribly during our absence. Other than having left Smythe Cottage (we were sad as that had special personal memories for us), but the new venue is much roomier and has it's own special appeal. Kay did wonders with an old deli location. The food and teas remain the best to be had and you just can not go wrong having a wonderful 'tea' here. Fredericksburg has great shopping and plenty of history so make it a full day. Make reservations esp. on the weekends so you are not disappointed. Having lunch (for 2)at Pinkadilly Wednesday Kay!!

Enjoyed a delicious croissant filled with chicken salad, grapes and lettuce. As a bonus, soup was offered with my sandwich. The tomato bisque was outstanding. The pot of Earl Grey Tea was brewed just right and complemented my scrumptious lunch. Definitely will return soon to sample the scones at Pinkadilly Tea. Only one selection was available on my visit. The surroundings were charming and bright. Our server was cheerful and helpful.

Another birthday tea under our belts, this makes the 6th year in a row. As always we enjoyed ourselves, the tea, and our meal...but the sweetest was when Kay, the owner, came out with the pre-ordered cake (Snickerdoodle...daughter's favorite) herself and wished daughter Happy Birthday. Being a Saturday it was a busy day at the tea house, very glad I made reservations even though there were only 4 of us. Loving the new location, and the improvements they keep making. Onto the menu...again, it's the cream of crab soup that keeps us going back. Can not even express how perfect this soup is. And the quiche', YUM, perfect balance of flavors and textures. Daughter's friend had her introduction to Pinkadilly's today and she didn't even talk, imagine that, a teen girl not talking. She savored ... (more)

My daughters and I have been to this beautiful tea room twice. The first time we had the tray with the scones, sandwiches and dessert. The second time we had the quiche, soup, and scones. We had three different teas each time we visited. The tea was brewed perfectly and all of the food was delicious. We have visited many tea rooms including some in England and the scones at the Pinkadilly Tea Room were as good as the best scones we have ever eaten.(And that's saying a lot.) We also had the crab soup which was the best crab soup that we have ever had and being from Maryland, we have eaten a lot of crab soup! We are now using the Pinkadilly Tea Room as the standard for all tea rooms that we visit in the future.

My first visit to Pinkadilly was a little over a week ago, and it was worth every bit of the hour-long drive to get there. It was such a lovely, cheerful atmosphere—everything from the pink walls and crystal chandeliers, to the floral-patterned china and the assortment of victorian-style hats available to borrow made it the ideal setting for a ladies' day out. The she crab soup was the best I have ever had (and my parents are both from Annapolis—so that's saying a LOT!); the selection of teas was extensive; the quiche and scones that also came with my meal were simply amazing; and the value of the portions and variety of what's included with the 'Lady Catherine' was incredible. I'm rallying for a Richmond location now, but I would gladly drive an hour to visit this wonderful place again! It's not just a tearoom—it's a charming, memory-making experience.

I visited Pinkadilly Tea for the first time at their new location in June 2013 and wish I'd been able to go sooner! The food was excellent; salads were fresh, everything was delicious, the tea tray was well-varied and lovely in its arrangement. The tea was also well prepared and brewed correctly.

I threw the waitress a bit of a loop by requesting tea service (which must be reserved at least a day in advance). I had reserved but it was not written down... however, she quickly arranged to accommodate my request anyway. All of the service was very pleasant, from seating to checkout.

I highly recommend the chicken salad, mini-cheesecakes, and chocolate truffles. And the vanilla scones were the yummiest I've ever tasted (they are more fluffy and cake like, not as much li... (more)

I really enjoyed their previous location better. I visited the new location recently and the 'quaint tea room' quality is long gone. The feel of the place is more like a diner than an old fashioned high tea. The noise was deafening and I had to shout to my company to be heard. The old location was soft and quiet and secluded and this is 'too busy'. The food is still good but for a high tea I won't be returning.

This was my third visit to the Pinkadilly Tea Room and each one has been a truly wonderful experience at both locations. They have an excellent and lengthy list of teas including several green teas and herbal varieties to suit all tastes. The service is timely and always friendly and knowledgable. Each time we have enjoyed different menus that we have really enjoyed. The scones are some of the best I have eaten, and the sandwiches are quite deliciously different each time. We found the artichoke spread on baguette especially amazing this time as well as the strawberry trifles. Our Red Hat group has visited many tea rooms over the years and this one remains our favorite and well worth the travel time to go there.

Pinkadilly Tea is wonderful! I have lost count of the number of visits. I have been to the old and new locations to celebrate birthdays with the girls, Mother's Day, Christmas, anytime I can have tea at the Pinkadilly I do. My daughter often comes with me. Tea at the Pinkadilly is a wonderful experience for the 'Little Miss' in your life. It has something for everyone who loves tea and those who don't know they love it yet. I have booked tea for 4 and tea for more than 24. The food is always superb. You can see the care that goes into the menu choices. The tea room is adorable. The staff makes every tea special.

This is by far my favorite tea house, and frequent it as often as I am able. It may sound silly, but I dream of Kay's crab soup, it's THAT good. Everything I've had here has a well balance of flavors, and I always feel relaxed and at home. The teas are well and properly brewed, and the scones are so good with lemon curd or fresh cream. We typically go for lunch, but on occasion we do have a tea service which is always just so beautiful and selection is very delicious. Yes, indeed, can not go wrong at this tea house, as you are enjoying your shopping downtown historical Fredericksburg, VA.

I've had tea recently at Disney World's Grand Floridian and Keswick Hall in VA. Pinkadilly remains my favorite. The tea tastes fantastic and the amount and quality of food is superb. I find it gauche to serve jelly to adults having high tea, and Kay doesn't do this. We need more professional tea houses that give an air of specialness to the tea experience. Pinkadilly does a great job.

I recently visited the tearoom with my daughter and my two grandchildren. It was my granddaughters 9th birthday. This was the perfect place!! When we arrived my granddaughter was directed to the back where she selected a large hat to wear (we all donned hats during our luncheon). A wide variety of teas were offered. The four of us were each served a beautiful tea pot snuggled in a cute cozy with our selection. We ordered ahead to take advantage of a very special array of homemade tea sandwiches and desserts. They even had some designed for the children. Sandwiches shaped like ghosts,we were there prior to halloween. The tea room was more than I imagined. We all made some wonderful memories there. The server was wonderful. She went out of her way to make the children feel special. Every little girl (and bog girls also) 'needs' to have a special tea party like we did.
