My husband and I had to pleasure of having tea at Victorian Grace tea house this past Saturday. What an absolutely outstanding experience! We have had tea at Harrod's in London (England), the Drake Hotel in Chicago, and most recently-The Plaza Hotel in New York City. I am confident in saying the quality of food and service of Victorian Grace surpasses The Plaza Hotel in NYC, and the Drake Hotel in Chicago, and The Grand Floridian in Orlando- it is on par with Harrod's in London. Thank you to the owner and staff for a beautiful and blessed beginning of our 25th anniversary celebration!!

Wow, what a pleasant surprise! My mom and I came to visit Grandma in Florida and have tea hopped for a few years in Michigan and Florida, Victorian Grace is at the top of the list! Gloria was as gracious as could be, the food and soup was very delicious and the decor of the different rooms are charming and sweet. Highly recommend this hidden treasure! Can't wait to come back.

My best friend and I run away occasionally for a Girls Weekend. We always include a stop at a local Tea House. We have tried numerous tea houses thru out the state of Florida and Victorian Grace always comes out as our favorite! I have never had a bad experience at Victorian Grace! The food is wonderful! My favorite is the chicken and wild rice soup although the tomato basil is a close second. The tea is always steeped to perfection. The place is always spotless, you can tell the owner takes pride in what she does. You can't go wrong with a visit to Victorian Grace, my FAVORITE tea house in the State of Florida!

My daughter, grandchildren and I have visited this tearoom multiple times for the past several years and are never disappointed by the owner's consistent decorum and service. Victorian Grace offers an exceptional menu with many delectable teas to select from, and we have never once received anything less than 5-star service all around!

I had a lovely time here with my daughter last Friday. Our waiter Joshua was a pleasure to talk with. The pumkin soup was delightful and we enjoyed the Harney andSons Boston tea so much we bought some to enjoy at home. Thank you for another wonderful lunch.

My friends and I had an absolutely delightful experience at Victorian Grace today. My girlfriends and I walked into a beautiful Victorian setting and it only went up from there. The food was superb and the service excellent. Because it was Fall we had our choice of seasonal foods or the regular fare. We chose to go seasonal all the way and we certainly weren't disappointed. From a wonderful pumpkin soup to a fabulous pumpkin and white chocolate scone, it was first class all the way. I will certainly be spreading the news about the discovery of Victorian Grace in Brandon, FL.

My parents and I had a fantastic experience at Victorian Grace and have already started talking about another visit even though it is 2 hours away! We started with the delicious almond cranberry tea and also loved the apple cinnamon! The tea sets are so beautiful and authentic and the whole decor of the tea house is adorable! But hands-down, the best part for me was the food! Started with an amazing chicken cream rice soup (my mom loved the pumpkin soup as well), then delicious broccoli quiche bites, cucumber sandwiches, chicken salad croissant, and then... The most delectable caramel scone with Devonshire cream that I have ever tasted! The dessert bites of chocolate gooey cake and pumpkin cheesecake bites were really good too! I would absolutely recommend this tearoom for any special occasion!

I love the entire feel and the stunning decor everywhere. The servers are kind and more than willing to help you find exactly what you are craving. Best tea shop in the area!

This was the absolute perfect place to host a baby shower, or any get together for that matter! Lunch was simply fantastic - I'm already thinking of the next time I can come back. The atmosphere is relaxing and the details are thoughtful (love the hand towels in the bathroom and the themes in each room). Get there while you can, the owner may retire soon!

This was my third visit to the tearoom, the second with my mother and daughter. It is a bit of a tradition now because this tearoom is very intimate, cozy, colorful and delicious. We drank naturally decaffeinated tea for medical reasons but the taste was not compromised. Our favorite food item was the scones and cream and they are perfect with the tea. Service was impeccable, as usual. We would highly recommend this tearoom for other generations of women to visit to reconnect and bond with one another. The atmosphere is feminine and calm.

Food is amazing! I've been here 3 times and it never disappoints. I'm always raving about it. My favorite tea is Boston tea. The scones are the best on the planet. Also, ask for a private room. It's like you're in a Victorian doll house. The wait staff is very good as well. Sweetest people. Highly recommended.

First time to this place and it was horrible. Place is old, dusty, display out dated and the place has a moldy smell. The service was lacking, I believe the owner with the British accent-pushy and unfriendly. If you are use to 4-5 star this is not the place. Try Disney Floridian hotel tea house by the garden, now that's up scale and with class. Go to a real tea house, not an old run down house with odd decor.

Victorian Grace is one of the best tea rooms in the Tampa Bay Area. Their food and service has always been wonderful. In relation to the shocking review below, why would you go to a specialty restaurant with a fixed menu and not order anything. There are very few fine dining restaurants (if any) that let a group come in and take up a table, only to order a soda. It doesn't happen. The owner and her employees have always treated all of their customers with respect. Just because your group didn't have any common sense doesn't mean that her business should suffer for it! Five stars all the way around!

Unfortunately the most unprofessional and disrespectful experience we have ever had. Went with wife and family for the first time. Half of the group ordered lunch the other half really was not hungry and we all ordered tea which was great. 15 min later the owner or manager came by the table and told us this was not a place to come and drink tea only and we either ordered lunch or we had to leave and drink tea somewhere else. Needless to say we were shocked. There was no compromise. Sad thing this was my day off from work and we had traveled over an hour to enjoy the tea experience. We we're never told about any particular rules regarding having to order lunch with the tea when we made reservations either. This owner was not interested in negotiating or pleasing the customer. She was only i... (more)

I have been to many tea rooms. I have even been to afternoon tea in the Philippines and Scotland. Not one equals the food at Victorian Grace. Everyone I have brought there has loved it too. I highly recommend it for the food and atmosphere. My only criticism is their parking, there isn't enough.

This is by far the best tea room I've ever been too- and that's including the Grand Floridian! My mother and grandmother and I are regulars here. We take the day to relax and spend time together in one of the private rooms and are able to enjoy ourselves while feeling like we've gone back to a simpler era. The tomato basil soup is fantastic and for the vegetarians out there the egg salad sandwich is to die for! They are very accommodating about special requests like a vegetarian tea, just tell them when you make the reservation and all is taken care of. Definitely go for the holiday tea offered at Christmas time, it's well worth it!

Whenever I think of a relaxing way to spend an afternoon I ALWAYS think VICTORIAN GRACE! I enjoy going to tea rooms and this one is my absolute favorite because ALL of their food is SO DELICIOUS! My favorites are the creamy chicken and wild rice soup, chicken salad, and their paris tea! One more thing before I go..... Devonshire Cream (LOVE IT, no other compares to theirs). Their staff is friendly and their owner is SUPER sweet:). Can't wait to go and spend another relaxing afternoon!

My sister and I were recently in Florida on vacation and decided to stop at the Victorian Grace Tea Room on our way back to Orlando. We had a wonderful Tea experience. The setting is charming and all of the food was delicious! Each course was a delight and introduced new enjoyable flavors. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. We had a wonderful relaxing time in a beautiful Victorian setting. We have been to many teas over the years and this rates as one of the best. The only surprise was that if you selected a tea other than the featured tea of the day it was an additional charge.

Celebrating two birthdays on 1/28/2015 with friends. We encountered a very rude owner/server that wanted to ensure she was inconvenienced by a simple question/inquiry and had a horrible attitude. She lacked true customer service and interaction skills. We have frequently visited this tearoom on numerous occasions with several people and never experienced this type of service. While the food and teas are delicious and the decor is sweet, this experience has definitely impacted us to NOT return. The woman was confrontational and argumentative. I will not be returning! Not sure if she is part owner or just a server, but her skills need polishing when handling he public. Her behavior is not what one would want to emulate and frankly, she should have been gracious and hospitipal. No excuses!

Beautiful! Everything about this Tea Room is beyond amazing. I've been to a few tea rooms and this one is by far the best. If you're vegetarian, you can eat here....everything! Other tea rooms, tend to have meat....which you can't request to opt out of. Here you get to choose between the chicken rice soup (I've been told is amazing) or a tomato basil soup which is the best I have ever had. The teas are so perfect. And they even have sugar cubes! A must! Tons of antiques here! The atmosphere is perfect! Perfect! There is one large room and 4 private rooms!

I and two friends were visiting from out of town. One of my friends had never been to tea before. Her first experience was wonderful at Victorian Grace. The food and service was excellent! It was a very relaxed atmosphere and decorated beautifully. If we're in the area again we will definitely make a return visit.

My teenage daughter and I love going to tea and try to go about once a month. We live in the New Port Richey area and have tried most of the tea rooms in the Tampa Bay area. We also try out tea rooms when we travel. We decided to drive over to Brandon to try out Victoria Grace the other day. It had so many great reviews, we had to see what it was all about! I can tell you...the excellent reviews are very deserved!!! Both ladies who waited on us were probably the nicest hosts we have ever had at tea. The different rooms were adorable and the food was outstanding. Pumpkin soup with a pumpkin shaped crouton, the feta tart, the chicken salad...all of it was delicious. The highlight however had to be the scones. They were cranberry, white chocolate and they were by far the best scones I have EVER had!! If you love tea, you must try Victoria Grace!!

I haven't been to a tea place before and this was the first time/place I have been, and it was absolutely delicious! The chicken salad croissant, cucumber sandwich, and the white chocolate scones were delicious! I also had the tomato basil soup and I loved it. We were served the Royal Wedding Tea and it was so good that I HAD to buy some and take it home with me! I'm actually enjoying a cup right now ;) There was a bridal shower happening in the main room, and I am seriously contemplating having mine there too. I HIGHLY recommend this place! Especially if you love quaint and homey atmosphere :D

Our group of 25, including three children, went this weekend for a celebration for a church member. Everything was perfect. Service was exceptional. We were a bit disorganized but Victorian Grace had it all under control. All 25 loved it. Food was wonderful. The Devonshire cream rivaled anything one might get in England and we had to stop ourselves from eating by the spoonful. I loved the tomato soup but the chicken soup got rave reviews. The children's tea was delightful too. They went all out on every detail. We were so impressed already have reservations for their special holiday tea.
