We went to The Shoppe at Shady Gables Tearoom and we were not disappointed. We were there to celebrate a first time mom to be and she loved it! We had the best time trying different tea's and embraced the different hats we were able to use while we were there. If you live in Mid-Mo you must go here, and even if you don't live in Mid-Mo, find a reason to visit!!!

I've hear about this place a lot but never had a chance to go there. Yesterday, I and my husband went there from Columbia, MO. It took us 1.5 hour to get there, but it was all worth it. Upon arrival, we were astonished by the decor and every little detail this tea room had. Every table was unique with a personal touch. We are seated in a cozy nook, which is sort of a secluded place separated from the rest of the area. We loved it. It seemed like we had a whole place to ourselves. The services was amazing, and tea just exceptional. We loved everything we were served and left really satisfied and happy. A must do! I would totally recommend this place to everyone!!!

we had a recent birthday party at Shady Gables! The girls were made to feel very special and all grown up. Besides the normal delicious teas and food, they were treated to a tea pot shaped birthday cake that was both delicious and life like. My daughter expressed this was her favorite birthday ever and couldn't wait to come back again soon and definitely for her birthday next year! Thank you so much for making a 9 yr old young girl very happy on her big day!

This is THE place to go in the Kansas City area if you want a true high tea experience. Everything is wonderful, including the Tearoom itself, the decor, and most importantly the tea they serve. The gift shop is the whole house, displayed beautifully. It is a 2 hour drive from Kansas City and well worth every mile. My husband and I have gone several times and I have taken a girlfriend who loves tea as well. Everytime, it has been beautifully done and delicious. Hats off to the Shady Gables!

My husband and I stumbled across The Shoppe at Shady Gables Tearoom. We didn't have reservations but they graciously made room for us. So many choices of tea and we each got our own teapot full. The food was great. It was a fun unique experience.

My sister and I had a wonderful time at the Shady Gables Afternoon Tea. We had the Queen's Tea and the scones were the best we have ever had. We have had high tea in London three times, and this was just as good, if not better, than the teas we had there. The owners were friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back the next time we are in the area.

One of our best decision was to attend this fabulous Tea Room. Having been to many across the country I had high expectations and somewhat reserved what we would experience and I can state that we were very pleased and would highly recommend to all to try Shady Gables . Traditional setting. Food was home made and delicious. Wonderful atmosphere The teas were best I have tried. So many different flavors . Gift shop was full of tea related items and tea pots galore. A truly delightful I me had by all

We heard about this Tearoom from friends and brought a large group of ladies from ages 5 to 80! The staff greeted us at the door and welcomed us into their Victorian home and made us feel not only special but but us feel like we were special and appreciated! The Tearoom was complete filled and bustling with activity but it was quaint, service was devine and the food was plentiful, delicious and the presentation was prefect. The tea was so wonderful, i can certainly see now the differences in tea! They have over a 100 different teas, i have been to many tearooms but none had this much selection, served the meals so special and the food was traditional and yet yummy! The staff was so friendly and professional! My daughters in their 30's loved it and my grand daughters cant wai... (more)

Had a wonderful stop today at Shady Gables with my my sister. We had the full tea experience! The tea, food and atmosphere were first rate. The customer service was excellent. Also picked up tea to bring home and a Christmas gift. We plan to return in the Spring. The Shady Gables website was very helpful in that I could read about the many variety of teas and the food options available. My favorite was Angels Dream and also liked Ozark Autumn Chai.

This was our second trip and won't be our last. The afternoon tea is delightful and there are so many choices of tea. The food is fresh and delicious. The small rooms for tea for two are wonderful and feature things you can buy - from tea pots to paintings. What a treat in Versailles, Mo!

Once again, Shady Gables has been a pleasant, relaxing experience. I always request the Queen's Lunch as the Chicken Salad Croissant is most delicious. Yesterday, our treats included the delectable Red Velvet Cupcakes with a tasty surprise inside...Mmmmm! I always feel welcome and appreciated here. The staff are all friendly and truly service-oriented, intent on making guests feel welcome. My favorite tea is A Fine Romance as I love Vanilla, but my friends enjoy the fruitier teas-Blueberry, Cranberry, Blue Raspberry, Chocolate-Covered Strawberry. We love sharing and experiencing new flavors each time. Am looking forward to my return, which will be #5 for me!

I just visited Shady Gables for the second time. My first visit was with other mothers (group of 5); this last time I took my 18-year old daughter for some mother/daughter quality time and a college send-off. Great atmosphere and refreshments for either occasion. I plan to make it an annual event and have 'threatened' my son that I may even take him since he couldn't resist my bite-sized leftovers he found in the fridge. That's right, the Queen's Tea is so generous, I couldn't eat it all at one sitting. With so many tea choices, be sure to allow time to study the menu. I hope to return to try at least one tea from each category. Also, take time to browse the tea shop; they offer petite tart servers for sale that I've never found elsewhere.

Yes, men are welcome! My husband and I had the pleasure of enjoying the Queen's Tea. The food was delicious! Plenty to satisfy a man and pretty enough to make both of us feel special. We each had a different pot of tea...our favorite was Italian Ameretto. They sell 100 different flavors. Yes, I came home with plenty for us and some for gifts. The service was warm and welcoming. It was well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive. We will go back!!!
