This tea room was amazing! I have visited over 30 tea rooms amongst the PA, DE, MA, and NY area and I loved this one. Her food was amazing and thoughtfully prepared. She has a great sense of taste, and her combinations are things I would never put together BUT now I'm trying to replicate! There is a wide variety of teas, ranging from green teas to oolong and traditional black. The presentation was gorgeous, and the atmosphere was very nice. There is a lovely gift shop, and I bought a beautiful antique tea cup to add to my collection. I would recommend this tea room very highly, and would not hesitate to go back!

This is a little gem hidden in the outskirts of the city. Delicious savories & treats freshly prepared each morning -- great variety and very filling. Kind, friendly, attentive service. Did a great job of serving our party of 18 people. Extensive gift shop, beautifully decorated. Loved the Royal Wedding loose tea. Highly recommend!!!

Fabulous! Absolutely lovely service from start to finish, beautiful quaint rooms, an abundance of tasty and well prepared plates and a true gem in Delaware County not to be missed. My mother treated three generations of her girls at Christmas and it was a truly memorable day. We have plans to be back next month and will visit the gift shop today!

The Painted Tea Cup serves a wonderful variety of Teas with a knowledgeable staff to assist you in deciding on a tea. The tea was sooo good I purchased it to take home. They served the tea with orange slices,cinnamon sticks sugar cubes and cream on table if you opt to use. The butternut squash soup was amazing and wanted to lick the bowl clean!! Then they served a big variety of tea sandwiches and scones that were fresh,homemade and delicious!!! Just when i thought it couldn't get any better-dessert was fabulous! The atmosphere is warm and cozy. Beautifully decorated. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. There is also I gift shop that I was able to purchase the tea I enjoyed sooo much during my experience. I would highly recommend The Painted Tea Cup!

Having visited quite a few tea rooms over the years, The Painted Tea Cup was a pleasant treat! Everything on our plates was homemade, and it showed. The soup was divine and I'll admit I licked the bowl! The scone/sandwiches had nice variety and flair. The desserts unique and flavorful. The teas were good too. Served with cinnamon sticks, slices of lemon and orange, and candied sugars you could add to the tea. The staff was knowledgable, accommodating (we arrived an hour early) and on top of things! The decor is homey, inside and out... linens, china, holidays decorations, samples, knick knacks to purchase. I'd highly recommend!

My friend and I have traveled to many tea rooms over the years and I can not say enough wonderful things about this one!! The atmosphere was so special when you walked in the door. There are delights around every corner. Once we sat down and were served our tea it was the best service and the food was absolutely heavenly. The roasted butternut squash with creme and a dot of fig jam was to die for. The finger sandwiches and deserts were wonderful. I will defiantly be making the 2 hour trip back to the painted tea cup in the future!!
