Old South decor and southern hospitality awaits you at Southern Gardens Tea Room.

Traditional Tea Room favorites (quiche, soups, sandwiches, salads) as well as southern style cuisine directly from our kitchen to your table.

'Afternoon Tea' and 'Tea Time Delight' are available every day on our menu. High Tea 'Tea Gathering' is available with 24 hours notice.

In addition to the Southern Tea Room, we now offer an extensive selection of Southeast Asian cuisine using only the freshest ingredients available. Asian dining in a classic tea room is a wonderful combination.

Our selection of over 50 loose leaf teas are brewed by the pot right at your table.

Southern Gardens is located in the center of it all; 18 minutes from Wadsworth, 6 minutes from Akron, 5 minutes from Green and 20 minutes from Hartville.

I don't consider myself a food expert, but I know when I'm eating sams club dessert... Tearooms should be creating their own dessert. not store bought... That was aweful..

As the former owner (pre 2010) of this tearoom,I receive compliments every time I visit Akron on the NEW Southern Gardens Tea Room for the new owners. They are lovely people and have taken a very good tea room and made it into an Excellent one. Thank you for taking Southern Gardens to a whole different level of excellence.

Lovely atmosphere and presentation of afternoon tea with each person getting their own tiered tray of sandwiches, scones, quiche and desserts as well as a full pot of tea per person. Loose leaf tea served in beautiful pots and unique cups and saucers.
