Came for my friends daughter's Birthday. Connie stayed opened for us to come to her tea place. It was just great. Nancy our server was perfect. The food was excellent. Everything we had was good. Can't wait to come back for Christmas. You have to check this place out if you are in the area.

I had another tea luncheon for my Granddaughter and some friends at Serendipity. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. The chocolate mousse cake was delicious. We can't wait to return.

I don't know what tearoom the people visited who had a negative experience. It surely could not be Serendipity. Every single visit I have had (and there have been many) has been wonderful. The food is obviously homemade, the service is perfect, the decor is lovely and relaxing. I recommend Serendipity to everyone I know. The cheesecake in particular is the best I have ever tasted. If you haven't yet visited, do so - you will not be disappointed.

I usually don't comment on websites. But felt the need. Once a month my friend and I try to visit a different Tea Room for a girls lunch out. I use Tea Map to help me choose. When I read the review from Liz, I felt I had to comment. I was there with my friend in February and found the shop quite charming. It doesn't look exactly like the pictures, no seat covers, but seemed brighter, think there are different curtains. From other tea rooms I have been, they will only give you 2 small pots of water and you choose 1 bag per pot. Here we could try as many teas as we wanted. They even would brew us loose tea, if we wanted! I had a great salad with chicken salad on top. I didn't have the soup, but my friend had potato, and said it might have been the best she has ever had. She had ... (more)

Tearoom Response
Anne,

Thank you for the comments. I am so glad that you and your friend enjoyed your day out. I am happy you liked the almond torte cake, it is one of my personal favorites. I will look into expanding the menu slightly. We have added a new salad and sandwich to the menu.
I also wish we had a restroom in our tiny Tea Room, maybe some day. But you do get a chance to shop during your short break from your meal:)
Hope to meet you here one day!

Thanks again,
Connie

I don't know why the last person didn't like their experience because we absolutely loved it. The food was delicious, including the soup & the service was excellent. The décor was everything you would except for a tea room. It was just lovely. I would highly recommend the Serendipity Tea Room to all my family & friends. We will definitely be back soon.

Very disappointed. We waited quite a while to return only to find the tearoom we grew to love is no longer the same. Entering the door, we felt the tearoom lacked the elegance it once had. The servers assured us that the recipes were the same and we would enjoy our lunch. That couldn't have been further from the truth. The sandwich, salad, and soup (3 frozen meatballs) tasted like it was fast food and not fresh. We were looking forward to dessert and everything tasted frozen and dry. I'm not sure who is cooking and baking but improvements are needed to keep Serendipity's doors open. When we visited last May, we recommended Serendipity to our family and friends. After this experience with the higher food prices and lower quality food, we will be sure to tell our family and friends not to waste their time and money. So sorry to see such a sweet place going down the tubes.

Liz,
I am sorry that you had a negative experience at our tea room. I wish you would have let us know during your visit that you were unsatisfied with your meal. We, at Serendipity, strive to create a pleasant experience for all of our guests. I can assure you that our food is prepared fresh daily, and I'm sorry that you were unhappy. In regards to your comment about our prices, they have remained the same since the change of ownership. I hope you will give us another chance. If you would like to give us a call to discuss your experience, we would appreciate your additional feedback.

I traveled over an hour to get to this tea house. I was not disappointed when I got there. The server was so attentive and her suggestions dead on. I felt like I was at home here instead of in somebody's tea house. I took a friend who's never been to a tea. She is a very picky eater and for her to eat EVERYTHING given to her speaks volumes to the taste and quality of the food. Never met the previous owners, but the new one is delightful and I really enjoyed talking with her and the server after our tea was over. Experience was well worth the time spent to get here. I will definately be going back here again.

I traveled 2hrs with a friend to this very delightful tea room. A+ on the decor. The food was wonderful. The butter pecan scone was truly the best scone I have had in all the tea rooms I have visited! (and that's a lot)
The server was very personable & attentive.
It was definitely worth the trip & we plan to go another time.
And those who have mentioned former management no longer there, give the new management a chance, I believe you will be satisfied.

I was so sad to learn the tearoom is under new management when I went for lunch. We have been coming to the tearoom for a few years now. Luckily, it looks the same and Nancy is still there, but it just feels different. Just want to tell the Pieris we miss you and wish you well. It's just not the same without you.

We have been visiting Serendipity for a few years now and were saddened to learn that Piper and Don decided to sell the tearoom. Celebrating our birthdays there has become a family tradition. From Piper's delicious menu and attention to every detail to Don letting us sample the wonderful desserts and ice cream, we will truly miss you. Thank you for always making our family visits so amazing. Best of luck.

Serendipity Tearoom was a Wonderful place to visit. Good Luck to Piper & Donny now that they have sold the Tearoom. We will always remember having Lite Tea at 'Our Table.' We enjoyed coming from the very beginning all the way up until the day they closed their door for the last time.
Piper always had delicious food and paid close attention to every detail of the meals and decour in the tearoom. That's what made it SO SPECIAL. She was so attentive and made everyone feel they were the only people there. Piper definitely deserved all the great reviews and awards she recieved over the years. No one can say Serendipity Tearoom without thinking of Piper Pieri. I know our memories will always be CHERISHED. Thankyou so much Piper.
Lots of Love.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for supporting us these past 5 years. We regard so many not only as customers, but as our dear friends. Serendipity has become a memorable part of our lives. We have overcome pitfalls and used our imaginations and talents while building a successful restaurant that we hope our friends have enjoyed and come to cherish as much as we have. Selling the tearoom was an extremely difficult decision. We will take our wonderful memories and feelings of success and accomplishment with us. We sincerely want to thank Lyric & Kaitlyn, Megan, Dena, Nancy, Jenn, Bridgette, Leah & Kate for your love and support. We could not have done this without your talent and dedication.

My mother and I recently visited Serendipity for a Mother's Day lite tea. We had never been there before, but heard so many great things (all of which were true). Our server was friendly, quick, and fun (she even took our picture at the table). The food was delicious from the scones to the sandwiches. Piper was an excellent host and made us feel so welcome. The decor was beautiful and vintage, there were so many details to appreciate. We had such a lovely time and plan on coming back for lunch very soon.

Thank you so much for a wonderful Mother's Day!

Dear Piper
Thanks again for making our ladies tea so very special. You made us all feel like royalty with the decor & impeccable service. We had many first timers who raved about their fabulous evening, as did we all!! Thank-you for my lovely gift which I have displayed on my serving table. We will continue to enjoy your beautiful tea room for our own personal use and church functions in the future. There may be many tea rooms but yours will continue to be on the top of our list because of the awesome service, decor & delicious food.

We are blessed to call you our friend!! Your husband and wonderful staff are as warm and friendly as you!!

I took my Mom and sister to Serendipity and couldn't have picked a better time. The holiday decor was beautiful. They even lit the beautiful candelabra during our lunch. The food was amazing (we took chicken salad and scones home), the service spot on, and the attention to detail was perfect down to the floral decorated sugar cubes. We enjoyed our lovely afternoon and will visit again for sure.

I had the pleasure of spending a December afternoon at Serendipity Tea Room with my Best Friend. I was an adorable place with lovely decor and exceptional service (hats too!). I would recommend it to everyone.

We had full tea with salad, soup, sandwiches and dessert. Being vegetarian they did a nice job of meeting my needs, the soup and dessert were my favs but above all the tea was lovely.

I can't wait to return!

I visited Serendipity for high tea with my best friend as a pre-Christmas treat. We had such an amazing time. The ambiance is just perfect - clean and cute. The food and tea was wonderful. I highly recommend the Apricot tea, which was on special that day. It was so good I ended up buying some to bring home.

I think the best part of my experience (besides the food which was really yummy) was the service. Everyone was happy and knowledgeable, willing to go out of their way without hovering or being overbearing. I never felt rushed, which was great because I could have stayed all day! Can't wait to go back again!

I visited Serendipity for the first time in December. I honestly felt like I was in a Dickens Village scene. The victorian decor was beautiful, the food was wonderful (I can't stop thinking about the chicken salad and carrot cake ice cream), and the staff (Nancy) was so sweet. I recommend this little place to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.

This was my second time to the tea room and I have to say the food was much better this time, I don't know if it's because there was only two of us and the last time there was six. The scones were much better this time and the mushroom tortellini soup was out of this world and I really need to go back for some more.
