Last night my husband and I enjoyed the most memorable experience at the Royal Tea Room in LaPlata. The Yuletide Tea Service by Chef Betty and her staff brought back special memories spent with family and friends. From the moment we arrived a group of students from LaPlata High School were singing Christmas carols on the front porch. This set the tone for the rest of the evening from the personalized décor of each room and the food which by the way was not only fantastic its presentation was edible art for the pallet. We are looking forward to Chef Betty’s next creation.

This was my second visit to the Royal Tea Room and, once again, it didn't disappoint. From the person who took my reservation over the phone and confirmed my dietary preferences, to the chef who stopped by the table to check on our meal -- the service is unparallelled and the food is top-notch. I highly, highly recommend this tea room. It is second only to the St. James Tea Room in Albuquerque, New Mexico (which is in a class all of its own). The Royal Tea Room truly offers you a pleasant, perfect afternoon.

I absolutely recommend this tea room! The tea and food was the best of any I have had at any tea room, including even those in England. The cream of crab soup was exceptional. The tea had a full, rich flavor and the selection was great. The staff were attentive and pleasant; the atmosphere charming. Abundant food, we even took a few desserts home we were too full to finish. Definitely want to go back!
