At Sweet Shalom our celebration of afternoon tea is a delightful mix of European and American customs. For fine teas and comestibles, we invite you to join us in our cozy parlours where on Fridays and Saturdays each month there is a new journey into the world of tea, literature, history and culture. As our guests relax and chat our friendly costumed servers present each artfully garnished course on silver trays and antique china. Our homemade dishes are accompanied by freshly brewed premium loose leaf teas. A special program or entertainment is included at each seating.

The tea room began as a dream of long time friends Sara Velasquez and Chris Kruse. Years of raising a family and pursuing busy careers gave both women a need for times of peace and restoration in the midst of a hurried life style. They found their need met when they took the time to enjoy quiet moments over tea. Eventually, they became such tea enthusiasts that the idea of sharing the tea experience with others became a passion. Their hope was to minister to the community, through tea, in this historic treasure of a home. Soon their family members joined in the journey and became partners in the tea business. The main proprietors are now Sara Velasques, Chris Kruse and Ethan Kruse.

They believe afternoon teas reflect a serene and gracious tradition and that taking tea is a comforting ritual, an occasion of good cheer, and a time of sharing special delights. At Sweet Shalom, with a cup of fragrant tea and delectable sweets and savories, made by those who care, you are secure and safe from the hurried pace of the world.

The name “Sweet Shalom Tea Room” was inspired by the biblical word “shalom”. The definition includes peace, harmony, completeness, wholeness, wellness and perfection. We invite you then, to tea, with its promise of hours of good conversation, quiet contentment and shalom.

Lovely victorian tearoom. I visit monthly. The theme changes each month - the food and decor will reflect the theme. Bottomless pots of Harney and Sons tea arrive at your table by the friendly servers. Fresh from the oven scones with spreads arrive first. (Their scones are the best - they offer a class on scone making.) The main course is served next - soup, salad, or other dish appropriate to the monthly theme. A tray or tier of tea treats follow, garnished with fresh flowers. A full size dessert concludes the food service. A program is usually presented, based on the monthly theme. Reservations are required.

Not only is the tea brewed to perfection, the food delicious and plentiful, the decorations beautiful, the servers dress in period costumes, but the whole atmosphere is one of refined elegance. I cannot help but feel the stresses of life simply melt away. I leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.

The Downton Abbey theme this month was excellent. Everything was tasty and cooked to perfection. The tea is properly prepared and plentiful. One of the best tea rooms in Ohio.

I visit Sweet Shalom Tea Room every month. Each visit is better than the next. The tea is well brewed, there is a nice selection, the food is made from scratch and delish! This tea room really lives up to its name. Shalom means peace and that is what you will experience there. My husbands enjoys attending with me. The portions are generous and my hubby never leaves hungry.
The decor is amazing and changes every month with the theme. I just attended the Literary Tea and enjoyed a delightful reading done by Sara and even took home a book from the book swap event. What fun!
