The Wisteria Tea Room is a place for good food, celebrations and meeting new friends. Phil and Bobbie Schwartz are the proprietors who wanted to have a unique place for people to come for homemade soups, salads, baked goods and to experience the wonderful art of "tea". You can find unique gifts and a great selection of loose teas.

My friend went to the Wisteria Tea room in Fort Myers for a luncheon today with a group of woman. During the lunch one of the ladies by accident knocked over a creamer it hit the floor and shattered, when the patron went to pay her bill the owner approached her and advised her that she would be charging her $25.00 for the creamer. I am sure each person reading this has had a mishap in a public eatery and have never been charged for the dishware. I am also sure I will never set foot in that place ever again

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! Two years ago my mom and I decided to stop and see what this little place was all about for my birthday.It was the best birthday ever! Now we find any reason und we can to visit the magical Wisteria. The food is divine, the teas are served in a limitless pot with seemingly limitless selections of superb teas,and the atmosphere is full of love and friendship. I live in Miami now but I am looking forward to a trip back home this next week to have tea with my mom and to introduce my step daughter to all the joy that is found here. Wisteria is truly a Florida treasure!

Today, 1/14/14, my sister, mom, and grandma visited Wisteria tearoom. We have been to over 20 tearooms in Pennsylvania and Maryland over the last 8 years. The Wisteria tearoom is one of the best. The tea variety is exceptional. We sampled 4 different teas while enjoying the 3-tiered plates of artichoke quiche, almond chicken salad, cucumber sandwich, cheese spread sandwich, cranberry scones with cream, strawberries, chocolate lava cake, chocolate cheesecake and creme brûlée desserts. We enjoyed the professionalism and cheerfulness of our server, Elizabeth. The gift shop is full of unique tea themed goodies. Of course, Henrietta the chicken, greeted us on our welcome in the parking lot.

My wife and I had a wonderful time again the “Wisteria Tea Room and Cafe”. Every time we visit is outstanding. The staff are excellent. The service excellent. When you have a passion for something, you pour your heart into it. That is exactly what owners Bobbie and Phil have done. My wife and I have visited many tea rooms during our travels, and Wisteria is tops. The menu selection is excellent. I love the more hardy selections that accommodate the more robust eaters like myself...”Phil’s idea”. The tea selections is beyond compare. My wife’s favorite...”The Royal Tea”. Also the, Raspberry-Jalapeno jam from the gift shop is awesome on a turkey panini or even a peanut butter sandwich. I know it sounds weird, but it is really good.

Enough wonderful things cannot be said about The Wisteria Tea Room in Fort Myers, FL! The friendly staff and excellent service are beyond comparison. I took a friend to the tea room for lunch and her family is from Wales. As a young girl, she was accustomed to having tea and scones daily. She has been to tea rooms all around the U.S. also. She said The Wisteria Tea Room was the finest she had been to! The food was so good, the variety of tea was excellent, and the service and ambience was so refreshing. It is a wonderful place for a girl's day out. And, if you are just having high tea, you will never leave there hungry! The assortment of menu items will satisfy anyone. I just can't say enough about this tea room, their staff and this food. Oh, and the gift shop has such unique gifts and cards. I tell everyone that visits here about it or take them myself. I am so thankful to have found this jewel in my hometown of Fort Myers.

I found this shop in a Google search. It was Easter weekend and they were very busy nevertheless my friend and I were seated within 15 minutes, enjoying a pot of Assam tea. We chose the Royal tea, a excellent assortment of the shops cullinary talents. Portions are ample, the various menu items offer something for everyone. The gift shop is filled with unique gifts and tea things. This is a must stop when visiting Fort Myers

This was my second time dining at the Wisteria Tea Room, and it was for a special event..my bridal shower! What a wonderful place for a shower, the location is beautiful, and Bobbie, the owner and her staff go above and beyond with the food, teas, and service. It was a very special day, and my guests thoroughly enjoyed it. I would have appreciated being able to have more than just two hours to mingle with our 25 guests, I think one more would have been perfect! I look forward to returning for years to come, and cherishing the memory of our special afternoon!

On Thursday, March 21st, 2013, I brought four friends to the Wisteria Tea Room and Cafe for tea and lunch. I can't begin to tell you how much fun we ALL had! Darlene was so wonderful to us, making some suggestions and bringing us wonderful teas! Our lunches were varied, and so very delicious. We had a late tea time, and when we were finished, Bobbie joined us for a few minutes to hear our wonderful praises of lunch AND teas!! Four of us will leave Florida soon to head back up North. We WILL make reservations at Wisteria again next January, the first day that the five of us are all available again. We are thrilled that such a wonderfu place is available to people here in Ft. Myers. I will spread the word to my other friends who come South for the winter months. Keep up the good work! It is all worth it!!!! Carol Adams

I just returned from having the Afternoon Tea and had to give them the props they deserved. This charming old florida bungalow has been transformed into a tea house and café that serves not only High Tea but soups, salads and sandwiches. Everyone who works here is very nice and extremely helpful. You never feel rushed and they go that extra mile to make sure your visit as pleasant as possible. I recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxing meal in a quaint and spotlessly clean atmosphere. I'm so happy I live down here and will add this to my favorites not only for myself but to bring visitors to.

My friend had never experienced an afternoon tea before and I told her I couldn't promise her what I usually have in London but she'd still be happy. I was wrong. Wisteria is an incredible find and rivals some of the best tearoom experiences I've had in London and elsewhere. Everything was wonderful. I only wish I was a local or I'd be there all the time.

Oh my!! This tea room is one of the best I have ever visited! That says a lot considering that I have had high tea experiences at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando and New York City; the Willard-Intercontinental in DC (my favorite); and other incredible tea rooms throughout Florida and the United States. Upon entering the Wisteria Tea Room my family and I were greeted with the warmest hospitality. Bobby was beyond gracious and welcoming! Our server was Darlene who went out of her way to make us comfortable and looked after. I have never been in a tea room where a pot of tea costs $2.95 and is endless! As many teas and flavors as one chooses to have is available upon request. The lunch was delightful and the scones were the best I have ever had in any restaurant!! My second favorite place for sco... (more)

My daughter's wedding attendants and myself hosted her bridal shower on 9/28/12 at The Wisteria. I have been for lunch before so knew the wonderful experience I was in for. However, my daughter requested a 'tea luncheon' for her shower so didn't really know what to expect. She told me it was the most beautiful venue and so-o-o surpassed her expectations, she could not have been happier. It fulfilled the dreams of a bride to be! I live in downtown Ft. Myers and feel especially lucky that I can both enjoy and support a local business often. It's refreshing to have a lovely tea room owned and operated by a loving family. The Afternoon Tea, 3-tiered yummies both savory and sweet, was perfect for the occasion, the tea was endlessly perfect, and all 20 of the '30-something' guests were ex... (more)

I have a special attachment to the Wisteria. My husband and I purchased that house when we were first married. I went in last week and was truly in awe of how lovely it is. Bobbie is an exceptional host and Darleen attended to our every need with a smile. We feasted on the Royal Tea. Food is amazing. So looking forward to hosting my daughter's bridal shower there! Thank you Bobbie for the warm welcome.

Charming, delightful, delicious!
I recently chose the Tea Room to host my daughter's bridal shower. Bobbie and her amazing staff were warm and welcoming to our guests and made this special occasion so very memorable. We were comfortably accommodated in the delightful atmosphere of the Tea Room, from the gleaming hard wood floors to the elegantly dressed tables. All the ladies enjoyed a plethora of savory teas, not only can you sample as many teas as you would like but the pots are bottomless as well. The Afternoon Tea trays offered a delectable variety of homemade, melt in your mouth delicacies, the scones and Devonshire cream are outstanding! My family and friends will surely be returning often to enjoy Bobbie's gracious Southern hospitality!
