I too visited Yesterday's Café and Tea Room with that large group of lovely ladies. One would never have known the challenges of attending to a group of our size. The service was impeccable. The sandwiches were delicious and served with fresh, sweet pineapple, a wonderful, moist carrot bread and tasty cookies. However, Yesterday's is far more than tea sandwiches, serving the most unique teas and a cool drink, Matcha Lemonade. It is a lovely place, decorated with beautiful tea cups and tea pots, new and vintage. We were treated in small groups to a tasting, something unique to me in a tea room atmosphere. Clearly Yesterday's is a passion to all involved. I would love to visit Yesterday's again!

I was new to the Yesterday's Tea Room & Cafe. It was an awesome experience. What a great place to go. I attended with a large group of lovely ladies. We were treated so special by all the staff. Loved all the beautiful Tea settings and the delicious Tea and food. It was a very relaxing and fun time. I recommend it to everyone. It is a top notch Tea room. I was able to buy tea and tea related items. Just loved it!! Can't wait to come back again next year.

I had visited Yesterday's Tea Room & Cafe on Tuesday, April 22nd with my family and my dad. We had Nicole as our server. She was amazing as was the Afternoon Tea we had. The kids really enjoyed the Bubble Tea and I just loved the Matcha Lemonade. This was my husband's first time taking tea with me and I could not believe it but he actually really enjoyed the Creme au Caramel tea we had along with the absolutely wonderful food! The Matcha Tiramisu was the best dessert I have ever had! Thank you VERY much to everyone who made our Tea Time such a memorable and special experience. It was wonderful! God bless you all!

Today was my first time going to 'afternoon tea' and what a pleasurable experience it was. All the staff were so welcoming and patient in explaining the process of selecting teas to taste and choices of food items available to accompany the teas we chose. The food presentation was lovely and everything tasted delicious. We left Yesterdays feeling completely relaxed, pleasantly full and looking forward to planning a return visit in the future.

Anne,
It is one of life's greatest pleasures: spending time relaxing in a beautiful tea room enjoying afternoon tea. Thank you so much for your business, and selecting Yesterdays. Please join us for one of our upcoming candlelight holiday events - you won't be disappointed.

Expect to be impressed! Susan and her staff do not disappoint!! Charming and quaint tea room tucked away in Florence, with many options to suit your appetite...all beautifully prepared and served. The tea is exquisite. Optional choice of fine China to enrich the experience. Have Susan tell you the story of the collection...it gives new meaning to 'if you break it, you buy it' (lol). Enjoy the leisurely tea, as you won't be rushed. Everything is impeccably clean and tastefully decorated, and you're sure to find a tasteful gift for any tea fancier! Mom and I had a most enjoyable afternoon tea with you, Susan. We congratulate you on your upcoming 'reduation' from pink to red hat!!!

Each time I have visited Yesterday's, I am amazed at the artistry of the entire experience. Not only is the tea superbly flavorful and expertly served, but the food is delicious, outstandingly creative, and served with appealing presentation. The servers are always friendly and make patrons feel welcome and at ease. Susan (owner and manager)is extremely knowledgeable about the benefits of various teas and the proper way to serve them and inspires the patrons with a new appreciation for tea and for the value of a fine afternoon tea experience. The tasteful decor and soft music contribute to the uniquely lovely experience. My friend and I have agreed we want to celebrate birthdays there ever year and hope to visit more frequently with other girlfriends and family members. We also hope to bring our husbands there to try their Sunday brunch.

Cynthia,
Thank you so much for your kind review. Hopefully you'll come back more often than just once a year! Besides our afternoon tea, there's also our luncheon tea, our cream tea, and of course our delicious Sunday Brunch. Your husbands will also enjoy a trip over to our cafe/bakery (my husband calls it the 'man space') because of it's brick walls, high beamed ceilings, and aroma's of delicious baked goods.
See you soon.

Yesterday's is one of a handful of places that I can go to take a step back from the stresses of life and relax. The tea and food offerings are all exquisite in flavor and presentation. The service and environment are also superb. After having professionally reviewed hundreds of Northern Kentucky eateries, Yesterday's stands out in every aspect.

My wife and I have grown up with tea.
So we do expect the best and fortunately we have found it at Yesterday's.
This would be a great stop for anyone
traveling the I-75/71 corridor.
The Cafe is a step back into a kinder and more gentle era.

We had a wonderful time at the Dickens tea with 3 generations present.Such a wonderful experience.

- Janet 12/29/12

We visited Yesterday's Tea Room for a Dickens tea. Our experience was excellent. We were able to choose 3 different varieties of tea to be brewed for the table. The food was delicious and came in lots of small courses providing time to enjoy the tea and company. The environment was beautiful and the staff were willing to accommodate any needs of the group. (We had one person who was lactose intolerant.) The selection of loose leaf teas to purchase to take home was great. The staff (especially the owner)was highly knowledgeable and did everything they could to make our experience pleasant. It was definitely worth the hour and a half drive from Lexington. I will be back!

My wife and I happened upon this jewel while looking for the best-of the-best tea room in Kentucky and I think that we found it! The seasonal selection of teas is outstanding...and the same can be said for the pastries. The choices available for the entree expressed the variety of options to please any palate. I could go on but I think enough has been said to show my appreciation for the planning and management by Susan; the tea servers Amanda and Courtney; culinary staff Vicky, and the harpist, Laurel. Be assured that we will visit here again while recommending this outstanding tea room to others.

My very first visit to Yesterday's Tea House was wonderfully unique and enchanting. I had contacted Yesteray's and spoke with Susan about my homemaker group coming for afternoon tea. Our homemaker group (Flat Creek Elliston) had a specific date in mind and Susan was booked that afternoon instead of asking me to arrange another date, Susan offered for our group to come 'after hours'. Susan worked with me on the menu and gave us very delectable choices for our service that day. During our tea, Susan and Amanda educated us in the different types of China, glassware and of course the variety of teas she offers. It was difficult to choose our 3 teas because of her vast selection. We chose the Mother's Bouquet, Almond Cookie and a Blooming Flower Tea. They were all very pleasing to the palette. ... (more)

We stumbled across Yesterday's looking for someplace for lunch. But the hostess was very sweet and gave us an introductory tour. She did not seem put off by our ignorance (never heard of bubble tea or Matcha before). She was eager to share something she obviously enjoyed. We're planning coming back for the full experience next month when we are introducing some out of state friends to our city. The patio was so pleasant and was perfect for visiting and planning our weekend. Really gave me that 'lady of leisure' feeling. I especially loved three baked items. Her grandmother's Coffee Cake is so good. It has the texture and strusel filling I remember from my grandmother and haven't tasted since. The savory cheddar chive scones are so full of flavor they are addictive. And the date squares have a generous fruit filling without being overly sweet.

What a magical experience! The beautiful and inviting decor, lovely. whimsical table settings, and soft music create an extraordinary ambiance. The hostess greets the patrons in a warm, welcoming manner that is rarely experienced elsewhere these days. The servers are gracious and go out of their way to assure an enjoyable experience for the patrons. The owner, Susan, is knowledgeable about the health benefits of various teas and can also recommend teas for different pallets. She puts everyone at ease. Her enthusiasm for creating a memorable, pleasant experience makes patrons feel welcome and comfortable. When the server offers choices, everything sounds great and it is difficult to choose. However, all the food is of the highest quality with unique and delicious flavors, fresh, and served... (more)

Since 'discovering' Yesterday's about 5 years ago, I always consider it a special place to go. When one of my out-of-state college friends visited, we made it a point to visit this tea room. Most of our group chose frozen bubble teas and a variety of the delicious deserts (the old fashioned date squares are one of my personal favorites!). My friend was delighted with her experience and was able to buy one of her favorite loose-leaf teas to take home!

Thanks for coming in! It sounds like you were enjoying a lot of our Cafe style food. Not many people know we have a Cafe on the other side of our Tea Room! Because it's been growing in popularity, our Cafe is now opening at 7am during the week (Tuesday-Friday) so be sure to stop in again soon!
