      I visited the Pickwick Tearoom with three friends this past Sunday. The sandwiches were very good - a nice assortment. Enjoyed the Spiced Chai Tea. Each of us chose our own tea and had an individual pot. There was a good variety of desserts (small cookies and cakes) but I was disappointed that no scones were included in 'Jo and Beth's Afternoon Tea.' The service was attentive and the atmosphere was calm and quiet. The manager was friendly.

      It is always treat coming to this place. The prices are very reasonable and the deserts are amazing. Do yourself a favor and stop here. The experience is really relaxing and all of the food hits the spot.

      I happened upon Frankfort because I was visiting an old high school friend who now lives in the Chicago area. I was visiting from France and was pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful tea room in this small American town, I love the warm atmosphere, and was very well received by Cindy, the owner. I hope to be back before long.

      I am lucky enough to live 10 minutes away from the Pickwick tea room and I go for a cup of tea and a scone as often as I can. Not only is the food delicious, and the teas varied, but the people who work there are simply wonderful, and make the whole difference.

      My friends and I had a lovely afternoon at the Pickwick society tea room. We were there for a high tea luncheon. The food was delicious and the filling. A very pleasant atmosphere with nice background music. The variety of teas was endless. Everyone in our group tred different teas and loved them. If you are red for a great experience, put on your hat and gloves and have some tea at Pickwick Tea Room.

      truly enjoyed first experience at Pickwick. Was a gifted time spent with dear friends. We came from Skokie, Il. It was surely worth the trip. We will return. Cindy and staff were stupendous, food was fabulous, tea was terrific. Loved it all....

      

      I love Pickwick their tea variety is pretty broad and a lot of the teas there i never knew existed. As for the good the scones have to be the best there although the rest of the food is good ,but it is lacking just a little variety. Over all the service is great with that Victorian home feel to it and the staff are very friendly people. Pickwick is truly number 1 in Illinois!

      What a wonderful place for an event!!!! I hosted a bridal shower at the Pickwick Society Tea Room and they were so accomidating and just lovely people! Each guest got their own pot of tea and the variety of teas to choose from was extensive. Many of us shared with one another, so as to be able to sample several of the great varieties and the teas were wonderful. Also the food was outstanding and the experience as a whole was unique and very special.

      What a joy it was to experience the Tearoom! I recently lost my youngest child and I desired a calming, warm, and nostalgic environment to meet with a dear friend. We both received our wish, consumed red tea and coffee, great scones, and the bacon and lorraine quiche. Our service was great, the table and chair setting was intimate, and the colorful antiques reminded me of the preciousness of life. My palate and heart were well nourished! A visit to the Tearoom will become a monthly outing.

      This was our first time here and we had a wonderful time! My piece of advise is to give yourself a few hours here. We only gave ourselves an hour and wish we had more time! Great atmosphere, GREAT food and tea! Endless pot of tea comes with the high tea. They made great tea recommendations to us, the strawberry champagne tea was delicious! We even signed up for one of their Timely Tea events! Cant wait to go back!

      I am a frequent guest at pickwick, I go for the scones, as a person who loves to bake, can say they are fantastic ..I love the tea selection and presentation. One of the other reasons I go so often is the unmatched atmosphere. There are few places as quaint and welcoming, I get so sick of freezing in Starbucks or not being able to hear the person your lunching with over the commotion at Panera .

      If you act really excited, they will give you a little card to visit this website and help promote them. If you are not all smiles, they don't mention it.....hmmmm....guess that would be why they are #1 because it definitely did not live up to the hype. Sorry.

      Un-impressed is what I was today. Scone was best part of lunch and liked the egg salad and banana bread with lemon curd. Also, I am not a fan of smelling teas just seemed weird to do that. Did not go away with that full feeling that I expected

      We four ladies had all been to England at one time or another, and had enjoyed Devonshire's clotted cream with scones and tea. What a treat to find the Pickwick Society Tearoom with its charming ambiance, friendly service, amazing selection of teas, and totally delicious scones, muffins, quiche, and yes, clotted cream! This has become my new favorite place to bring friends!

      We held a Bridal Shower Tea at the Pickwick Society Tearoom. The event was lovely,charming and very enjoyable. Though there was a large group,everyone could choose their own pot of tea from more choices than one could imagine. With individual pots rather than just cups, guests could share. The quiche and scone choices were freshly baked and delicious . The service was excellent. We were very pleased with everything. The perfect venue for a shower !

      The Pickwick Society Tea Room was very enjoyable. Once you sit down your server lets you smell the tea you want. I find this very helpful for someone who knows nothing about tea. The tea I had was the amber dragon which was delicious. The foods we got were all very tasty and it was fun getting to try the different foods and it was beautifully served. The staff were cheerful and knowledgeable about the tea. I would recommend this to anyone. I would definitely go back. : )

      I took my daughter there before our baby was to come and had a lovely lunch. The owner saw she was pregnant and made sure to tell her not to order green tea as expectant mothers shouldn't drink it. We were never rushed and we enjoyed looking at all the cute items on display.

      My Mom and I had the most charming and enjoyable lunch at Pickwick this afternoon! We ordered Jo's Platter which was a sampling of tea sandwiches and pastries. Each one was better than the last! I couldn't pick a favorite! My mom had the strawberry champagne tea and I had the vanilla cream rooibos- both were absolutely wonderful! The ambience, decor and staff also added to the positive experience we had. I can't wait to bring friends and family back!

I am planning to host future events at this Tea House.

      I've been to Pickwick twice in the past two months, and both times were superb. The first time was for a baby shower, and they served each guest a pot of tea along with scones, cream, preserves, finger sandwiches, and finger desserts. Everything was excellent. The second time was for lunch. I ordered their full-size egg sandwich off of the menu along with a pot of tea, a scone, cream, and preserves. Everything was consistently great the second time around as well. I plan to make having lunch at Pickwick a regular event. So far, my top tea choice is their organic French Breakfast tea, which is incredibly smooth and flavorful. However, they have many other options that I look forward to having.

      Fantastic place to visit and have tea with a few girlfriends or grab a light lunch. Beautiful store, and almost everything in the store is available for purchase (decorations, paintings, etc). We hosted my sister-in-law's bridal shower here in Summer 2012 and it was perfect for a quaint, parisian themed party. You must check out this tearoom!

I'm an avid reader of romance novels featuring tea etiquette and the essence of the tea and I must say that the this experience was even better than what I've read about. I loved everything about it and I would highly recommend it for a relaxing time with good friends. Cant wait to go back

      Our server was Dawn and she couldn't have been more lovely and cheerful. Her presentation of the wide varieties of tea was interesting and enlightening. She told me facts I never knew about tea. I brought my two oldest and dearest girlfriends and they enjoyed everything as well as I did. I plan on bringing my husband so he can enjoy the experience as well. Plus, I want to look into reserving tickets for their special event teas coming up in 2014. I am especially interested in the Jackie Kennedy and Mark Twain teas. I highly recommend Pickwick if you're looking for a relaxing dining experience with old fashion charm. 🎄 Happy Holidays tea lovers ⛄️

      The tea room is my escape from my home office and the perfect pick me up in any weather/season. The staff values hospitality and is knowledgeable about their huge variety of tea (green, white, black, rooibos in too many flavors to list). Hannah's fresh baked delights continue to impress with appearance and taste, especially her mini-cupcakes and seasonally-inspired treats. And owner Cindy's hard work has paid off in being recognized as the Outstanding Destination for the Chicago Southland Convention and Visitors Bureau for 2013. I highly recommend this charming tea room.

      I get to Pickwick about once a month with friends and though I am a tea drinker, I decided to try a cup of coffee with my Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffin. Talk about delicious! The staff is always warm, attentive and friendly. I recommend making a day of it by enjoying the tearoom then shop all of the quaint shops up and down the street. My friends and I love it there!

      

      Even better. Contacted the owner via e-mail and 4 days later still no response. Highly unprofessional.

      Tearoom response:

      Sorry for this unfortunate exchange but, I cannot control what a customer says to another customer. As it was a private event, she was within her rights to only allow her guests into the tearoom. If you had called ahead, you would have been told about the private memorial tea we were honored to host.

      THE BEST! The Pickwick Tea Society is a great experience. The scones, muffins, 'Little Women' theme offerings, and the great variety of teas are all top drawer! The menu groups the teas by variety and the servers are very knowledgeable about the offerings. After exploring the shops around the Village Green in Frankfort, the Pickwick is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a great cup of tea! Went with my granddaughter and the children's menu was perfect. Her tea was served with a small tea pot and beautiful one-of-a-kind tea cup & saucer. The tearoom also has lots of unusual gift items which we enjoyed looking at after our tea. A GREAT EXPERIENCE,

      We have been going to Pickwick Society Tearoom for years. We have introduced many friends to the Tearoom as well. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere with attentive service (but not hovering-as another reviewer pointed out). It has an extensive tea menu which changes with the season, so there is always something new to try. The food is all made at the Tearoom and is delicious. As other reviewers have pointed out the staff is happy to accommodate dietary restrictions as well as children's varied requests. It is a lovely place to have a party or a shower or just to relax & catch up with friends.

Next time I'm in town I will be sure and have tea there again.

      My second time to Pickwick and well worth the hour drive from Valparaiso, IN. 4 girls out for full tea and it was wonderful. The scones were flaky and delicious, the sandwiches fresh and flavorful, and the desserts...incredible. I would recommend this to anyone who loves afternoon tea or who just wants an afternoon of relaxing fun. I have been to over 20 tea shoppes in the US and abroad and would rate this as second only to a 5 star hotel in Geneva Switzerland. Try it!

      I visited The Pickwick Society last Saturday with three of my friends and enjoyed Marmees full tea. The tea I had was their holiday tea and was delicious. The food was excellent and there was a good variety to pick from. We enjoyed it so much and will return in the future!

The tables were set with fancy Tea cups and saucers and cloth table cloths.The food was made in the back room so the whole store smelled so YUMMY and tasted so good. The store is filled with so many pretty things to look at and purchase.The staff was friendly .It was a great Time.

      I have been to many afternoon teas in Illinois and other states. This tea was one of my favorites. We had the 'afternoon tea' for $17. It included a nice variety of fresh fruit, 6 tea sandwiches each, 5 desserts each and a pot of tea each. I found the price to be lower than many other teas with the same quantity. We ate the tea as 'lunch' and could not even finish the desserts. The owner greeted us and brought over 43 varieties of tea. She had glass containers of each tea so that we could see and smell each variety. Her knowledge of the tea surpassed that of any tea I have ever had. My tea was brewed well, though I do have to agree with one previous comment: we were seated by the front window and it was not warm in there! We kept layers on the entire time, and the temperature did cool off the tea. The owner checked on us many times, though, and when we mentioned that our tea had cooled off, she made us new pots and put cozies on the pots (which really helped). The sandwiches were very good and not as 'strange' as some teas I have been too (cucumber, lemon curd which was great, a fresh red pepper, turkey w/ a good mustard, apple bread w/ cream cheese--obviously homemade and very good, chicken salad--which was slightly dry). I would give every sandwich a '10' except that chicken salad. The desserts were themed for 'holidays' so included eggnog, ginger and lemon flavoring. They were all homemade and most were very good. The best was a chocolate cupcake w/ peppermint frosting. The establishment was charming with a great view of the outdoors--a very casual and homey feeling. I will definitely go back (and ask for a tea cozy, and perhaps a warmer table).

      I have been coming to this tea room for years. I cannot get over how consistantly good it is. I saw one person said something about sugar cubes. I don't miss them. I KNOW they make all their own savories and desserts. Nothing is 'store bought'. I am a huge fan of the ham salad they make for some special events (I have been at a few) and the scones and their homemade lemon curd. Such a special place where I always feel at home.

      Hosted an event for my Mom. Most of the attendees are not tea drinkers. But the owner came out, explained the variety of tea and how much caffeine in the tea. Which was perfect since my Grandma cannot have caffeine. And those who know tea were impressed with the selection. The food was great, enjoyed by all, they even accommodated the youngest tea member by giving her PB&J with her tea. And accommodated the oldest tea member by giving her a pumpkin bar instead of the brownie dessert selection. The room itself is comfortable and cozy. The service was efficient, and had a cheerful patient waitstaff.

      Unfortunately for us we were very disappointed. We had a tea reservation for 3 on a Sunday afternoon. There was only 1 other tea reservation for a large party while we were there and we were seated right next to them. It was very distracting because they were a large group celebrating a birthday. I cannot comment on the service because we received NO service. We were not greeted, not spoke to unless we asked questions, given no information about the food we were served until we asked. Very odd for a tea room. The tea was delicious, although there are no sugar cubes. The silverware was a lovely silver plate wrapped in a white paper napkin, also odd. The cinnamon scone was good, again odd that you aren't served lemon curd. The savories were average with some pre packaged frozen phyllo's which the server didn't know what to call. The desserts were mostly store bought, although the carrot cake appeared to be home made, as well as the shortbread being overbaked. Very disappointing as we were all in for a surprise 50th birthday. Nothing special about this tea room.

I was really surprised at the cozy atmosphere that the place had as soon as I walked in. There service, menu and teas were all excellent by my standards. I didn't know that this place existed, and I will be back. Five Stars!

Now I have tried winter and summer menus and can't decide whick I like better.

      Been coming here for years and it ALWAYS has the best food, staff and items for sale. It is great for a walk in [the tea counter for a quick take out] or a sitmedown. When i have gone in with the granddaughters they are most accomadating to there tastes (whatever the girls age). One is all cucumber sandwiches another only peanut butter{no jam} - no problem. I particularly like to stop in after going through the Frankfort Farmers Market. Just two blocks away it is nice to walk through it shop and/or eat through it and then head to the Pickwick for a sitmedown of tea-scone-soup/fruit plate etc.... AND then head bcak out to shop at the other businesses in town and lst (for me) to the ALways Open for the Sunday papers, milk etc.... However anyone else sees the Pickwick i think it is a lovely place to either start or end the day. 42stars to it. Many thanks.

      I love this place! So warm and inviting. I must admit, I read a previous review about their 'Full Tea' and I was prepared to leave hungry (I mean, are you supposed to be stuffed after high tea?). I was so satisfied. There was more than enough for a meal. Basically, the equivalent of 2 whole sandwiches (I counted) plus 6 finger desserts, a full sized scone a piece and a tea cup full of soup. I thought it was more than enough. My little pot of tea was refilled as often as I wanted (I love Earl Gray bu ventured our of my comfort zone to a Tangerine Ginger...yum!). I heartily recommend this tea room. The care was obvious and the food in house made (they said) and it tasted very fresh. Yes, it is $28.00 or so a person, but well worth it. So much food!

      I have been many times to the Pickwick tearoom over the past few years but today I had the full tea service with tea, an assortment of sandwiches and cookies and it was such a treat. It included a nice visual and olfactory presentation of all the teas (whole leaf) available. I happened to have tea at the Drake Hotel in Chicago last week and I could not help but compare the two experiences, with the Pickwick tearoom the winner by far! Their presentation, their tea, their food, and last but not least their service were superior in every way. I also came home with some cookies as I could not finish everything! I highly recommend this place to anybody.

      I had never been to a tea house so I had no idea what to expect. This place was great!! Quaint decor, I loved the Little Women theme, tasty teas, high quality foods, and overall a wonderful experience. They had alot of free trade teas and organic teas. I personally ordered the Raspberry Champagne hot tea, and I was not disappointed. The food was delicious, all bite sized finger foods. My personal favorite was a red pepper and cream cheese sandwich on whole grain bread. Also, the cucumber sandwich was delicious. I do think they should expand tho, because it was a tad small.

We have been to tea in the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida and there is absolutely no comparison. For a fraction of the Ritz's price, we enjoyed a tea that was bountiful and delicious.

      The experience we had at the Pickwick Society Tearoom was unforgettable. The service was excellent, the food was great, and the tea was wonderful. We were there during the Christmas season and the tearoom looked very festive and inviting. There was a cookie walk that day in the town and the Pickwick Society was one of the stops. We had fun watching the people come in all excited about the day and stopping for their cookies. St Nickolas also stopped by, wishing all a Merry Christmas. I was impressed with the staff and their knowledge of the teas and the large variety they offer there. One of my favorite things about the tea room is the menu. The theme of the Pickwick Society is from the book 'Little Women' and the menu was a great reflection of the book. I was also impressed with the owner of the tearoom. She took time with each table of customers. She talked with them and answered any questions they had. She talked to us for a little while. She was full of information and just very nice to talk to. I look forward to going back again and enjoying the wonderful setting and tea at the Pickwick Society Tearoom.

      First you have to understand that after visiting some extraordinary tea rooms through the years in Michigan, Kentucky and Ohio - my expectations are very high. For me, my experience at the Pickwick Society Tearoom was average at best. After making a reservation for two, I had traveled a long way (from Michigan) to visit the #1 tearoom in Illinois, only to be greeted very lukewarmly (even after sharing how far I had come). We were off to a bumpy start, but after asking to shift our table assignment to a location better fitting intimate conversation (the table for two on the porch), I asked the same hostess to 'tell us a little about the history of the tearoom.' She abruptly excused herself and disappeared into the kitchen, never to return. 'Kevin' did return however, and anything positive that happened from there on out was due to his kind and professional customer service. He's a keeper. Tearoom Average - Kevin's customer service, Excellent!

Each time the staff have been wonderful, friendly and very knowledgeable about their tea. The service is wonderful and it is great to just be able to sit and relax. You can tell that the staff and owner have a passion for what they do.I have learned so much about tea from them. I have now got my family interested in the great tea that they have and have purchased many of them including the great mugs!! I will forever go to the tearoom when I need to chill out, want a good cup of tea or great lunch. I can not wait for March 21 which is a special event which is Lunch with Mrs. Potter Palmer.

      I have been coming to Pickwick for over three years. Currently, a friend and I visit at least twice a month, if not more. I've brought friends and relatives and have never had a bad experience. The service, tea, food and atmosphere is ALWAYS 5 STAR!!! I've attended their Special Teas also, and they are superb!! I've been to many tearooms, and believe me, friends, THIS IS THE BEST!!

      When I first heard about this tearoom from a loyal customer, I was very much looking forward to having tea there. And, I can honestly say that my first impression of it was very good. However, during subsequent visits I have had poor service, been made to wait unusually long to order and for my food to be served (when the restaurant was almost completely empty), and have been made to feel that I am decidedly unwelcome. Since I am an 'ethnic' American, I can only conclude that the owner and the staff of the Pickwick Society Tearoom are highly uncomfortable with a culturally diverse client base, and therefore does not desire one. In good conscience I CANNOT RECOMMEND this place to anyone, and I WILL NOT BE RETURNING there . . . EVER.

      Tearoom response:

      Jo Anne, I am sorry you feel that way and I am quite distressed that anyone would accuse me or my staff of any sort of discrimination. At the Pickwick we pride ourselves on our diverse staff and customer base. If you had expressed your concern while here, I could have explained. Not knowing what was going on the day you were here I can only say it could have been a day when we were short staffed, it could have been a day when we had many intricate orders or it could have just been that our somewhat leisurely style didn’t fit your schedule. I understand, we will not always please everyone but we certainly try our best to treat each and everyone of our customers with the same respect and consideration.<BR> Just for your information, our small staff includes 2 native Americans, a Cuban, a Mexican, an African American and 4 people of mixed heritage. I believe that’s about as diverse a staff as you could ask for in a group of nine.<BR> Cindy Vassell<BR> Owner/Chef

      My mother, grandmother and two young daughters,ages 4 & 6, yes - four generations, visited the tea room on Decemeber 13, 2009 for 'Tea with Santa.' This was our third annual visit and it's a delight that we look forward to every time. Kid-friendly to say the least! A cozy, charming and very festive atmosphere that made us feel like we were part of the family. I highly recommend 'Tea with Santa,' for any group, especially if comprised of young ladies!! PS While I've only been in for the holidays, my mother and grandmother have been in numerous times throughout the year and have never been disappointed!

Beth enjoyed the Organic French Breakfast tea and I the Tropical Green tea. It was really nice to smell the aroma of the tea leaves before selecting our tea. The food was delicious, and presentation showed that details mattered to the owner. The setting was quanit, and festive holiday decorations and tablecloths added to the experience. Cloth napkins, however, would have been nice. I would definetly go back the next time I visit the area and recommend The Pickwick Society Tea Room to other tea enthusiasts.

I have brought my son, yes he loves it, and now my daughter. You are so kid friendly and make a day out with the kids relaxing and fun. If only you were closer to us we'd be there weekly!

      If there was a higher rating then excellent, I would give it to the Pickwick Society tearoom. We have always had a pleasant experience on our numerous visits. They serve whole leaf tea with tremendous variety. The staff is all knowledgeable about the various types of tea served. The food positively compliments the teas and is always fresh and delicious. The tea room is adorned with all sorts of interesting and tasteful decor, all of which is for sale. However, what makes this tearoom unique from others I have visited, is the staff. The owner and all her hostesses make your experience one in a million. You feel as if you are visiting the gracefully appointed home of an old friend...whether it is your first time there or your 30th. I highly reccommend the Pickwick Society Tearoom to any tea afficianado, or anyone wanting a peaceful afternoon to visit with a friend.

      My friend and I wanted to get together to catch up and have a nice lunch. We chose the Pickwick Society Tearoom. The choice could not have been better. From the moment we walked in we felt relaxed and welcomed. We had chosen to order the full tea and what a fabulous experience. The owner came to chat with us and she was soft spoken and very informative. She explained the tea and the menu. We had delicious soup, scones to die for, hot and cold sandwiches that could not be finished and deserts we actually brought home.(Except for maybe a lttle taste!) The tea was out of this world!!! My friend and I sat and visited for over two hours. The wait staff came to check on us, refilled the tea, and encourage us to stay until we were ready to leave. We have decided to try and have a visit and tea every couple of months.No stress, no rushing, just a great place to go to truly have a lovely afternoon!! Thanks for doing this for us!

The food was great - we started with the fresh fruit plate which was enough for the four of us. Each person ordered their lunch choice. Then we shared a desert tray. We had plenty to eat. The service was happy, helpful and informative. I encourage you to try it - don't think you will be disappointed. I will definitely return. The homemade shortbreads are GREAT too. Even the strawberry cupcakes we bought to bring home. Go and ENJOY!!!!!

      My mother and I have been to every tea room in the Chicago-land area. And I must say this was the VERY best. The price seemed a little high for a high tea but you will NEVER believe the amount of food you will receive. On past tea experiences I left hungry and wanting more. Today we all left stuffed and never have we received such a selection. They started with a lovely fruit cocktail then brought out huge and moist scones. Then the three tier tray arrived. Oh my goodness! There must have seven or eight different sandwiches a vegi quiche, strawberries and five different desserts! We all ordered a different tea and we all were offered and taken up on refills. Not only have you made clients for life I can’t wait to bring all our “tea” buddies to the ONE and ONLY place to go for tea! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

      Recently my neighborhood women's group went to the tearoom for high tea and it was the most delightful experience. The tea selections was large but not overwhelming and the staff was so knowledge able about all of them. The food was amazing and the attention to detail in each tea sandwich was something you don't find in just any tearoom. I was also really impressed that all the desserts are made on the premises-- no wonder they taste so good. I would also like to note that our servers were very attentive to us and everyone else who was in the tearoom that day. The women in the few previous reviews must have reviewed the wrong tea room on accident because what they described was defiantly not the pickwick. I would encourage everyone to visit the pickwick. We will defiantly be back -- we already have reservations in the end of July and I can't wait.

      I have enjoyed visiting this tearoom regularly over the past 18 months, but my past two experiences were very disappointing. I guess the place just got busy and forgot how to take care of its customers. The last time I went with my family, we were not offered the second tea that we were promised which was very disappointing. In addition, the food is no longer served in courses; they just placed everything on the table at the beginning. Several of us finished our one little pot of tea before our food, and we left the tea thirsty.

      This was my fourth visit to the tea room with my sisters and nieces, 10 of us in all. Past visits had been very plesant. Our last visit on a Saturday near Mother's Day was most disappointing. We had a reservation for and expected the High Tea we had previously experienced, a lovely liesurely tea service with alternating food and teas courses. Instead, we waited a long time for our first tea, and then all of our food courses were dropped at our table at one time, with an explanation that some recent customer had complained that their conversation had been interrupted, and so the service was changing. Upon inquiring about further tea selections, we were told we would have only 1 opportunity to change teas. We had to seek out a server for this second selection. One of my favorite items of the past was the lemon curd with scones, no lemon curd was served with our scones. After we inquired about lemon curd we were brought enough for 1 scone. Our entire experience was on this occasion was very disappointing. Not sure why we were treated in this manner, but surely did not feel very welcome and are not encouraged to return.

      Our party was there the weekend before Mothers Day...with reservations months in advance. They double booked us, thru no fault of our own, we compromised and made our reservation earlier---we are REPEAT CUSTOMERS---having been to a 'high tea' here before we had anticipated the food and tea for weeks. We were informed after waiting far too long...that they had changed their tea service to what I could call 'drop and run' not to mention you no long get to alternate teas. Once the food was dropped off, we had to go and find a server to get anything else we needed. We were definitely not the priority that day. Having been there before I really felt as though our being there was quite the inconvenience, and you chose a large party ($$) over your loyal customers. I also attempted to contact you several times the week leading up to the reservation, but you did not have the courtesy to return my emails nor my phone calls; I am sure because you didn't want to tell us about the 'drop and run' change in service or that our party wasn't that important to you. I have to say that I once loved your tea room, and I feel my family of 10 helped make you the #1 tea room in the state, but Cindy you did us wrong, and we will find another tea because of it.

Walking in we felt like it was very 'Grandma's Kitchen', quaint. The server was very nice and pleasant, food was good-but mostly sweet; we felt like we needed more savory items. It would have been nice to have a choice of desserts, versus just a sampler of the breads/cookies/cake. The tea room complimented the surrounding shopping

      The place is just charming. I don't know what I expected, but I was very thrilled. We were seated out on the porch which was such a lovely and very private area. Very conducive to chatting, which is what my girlfriend and I went there to do. Sometimes a busy Restaurant is just not conducive to chatting. Do not go here if you are in a hurry. Nothing about this place is done in a hurry. The food was different ( at least to me ) and very tasty. The tea was steeped to perfection. It was drinkable upon pouring and all you need was a touch of sweet to round out the flavor. Doesn't make much sense to drown a tea in half and half or cream. My girlfriend and I split Meg's delightful savory plate and the quiche of the day, as we wanted to sample as much as we could. There was 1 sandwich in particular, it was thinly sliced apples, with Brie cheese on cinnamon swirl toast.... It was to die for... and I am not a Brie cheese lover. The pomegranate White Tea was excelent. Never ending pot of tea is just what it is. My friend and I each had 2 pots, and could have had 2 more, but we needed to get going. We did however regret not getting a little something sweet. That was our own fault however.

      I was looking forward to having a proper cup of tea at Pickwick Society, but was vastly disappointed. The atmosphere was fine, albeit cutesy, the food was decent, but the tea seemed to be hardly steeped, and it's proper to be served milk with your tea, not disposable packets of half and half. I thought I was going to the best tea room in Illinois, not a chintzy diner.

      It was a 30 mile drive, but on a lovely day we wanted to chreck it out. Past reviews sounded outstanding. Depending on what one expects this tearoom was an utter disappointment. Large variety of teas, but we had to wait at least 25 minutes before it was served. Yes, we had reservations for afternoon tea, so no excuse. Sandwiches only fair. Chicken salad served on a hard croissant, never heard of a lemon curd sandwich, that's usaually reserved for scones. The lemon lavender scone was goos but faux devon cream served. You could taste the sour cream. Pastries : on eggnog tea bread, cashew cookie, shortbread cookie & pomegranate cookie. No little pastries. I would not go back.

      My mom and I have a tradition to go to high tea each year at Christmas to a different downtown Chicago hotel. This year I found The Pickwick Society on a web search and decided to try it since I knew the Frankfort area and the high standards of the shops and restaurants. We were extremely impressed by the warm atmosphere, the wide variety of tea selections, and the delicious, homemade soup, sandwiches and desserts we were served! The Pickwick Society Tearoom, in our opinion, has a few of those downtown hotels beat hands down based on quality and service. We will definitely return, not just at Christmas!!!

      It was the first time that my mom, sister and I ever went to a tea room and I'm so glad we picked this one! We decideed to have the Marmee's afternoon tea, which was delightful! We really liked the very informative tea presentation, which helped us decide on which teas to choose, since there are so many teas - all loose leaf teas (no tea bags here!) ranging from black teas to white teas, with rooibos' and mate's in the mix of them all. Didn't know much about all these teas until now! We really enjoyed taking the time to pick the type of tea to accompany our finger sandwiches and desserts - which by the way, were delicious (and could not have done that without their informative tea presentation). If you want to have a total tea experience as we did, then this is the place for you!

      After a return visit today with a friend who missed my birthday tea over a month ago, I can definitely say I enjoyed it as much the second time as the first time with a group. My friends all liked the variety of teas, different teacups and the history of the teas. The food is excellent, especially the chicken salad. The variety of cookies and pastries makes for a tough decision which to try. I'm glad I live reasonably close by so I can stop in any week-end. I'm anxious for another visit before Christmas to try some more of the seasonal goodies. This place is a must-try for anyone who enjoys different teas, cider, lemonade, and wonderful pastries.

      Having missed my friend's birthday party which was also held here, she agreed to take me for my birthday! What a special treat! What I loved most about this tea room is that unlike those at hotels, I didn't feel like I was so much in a restaurant as in a private home conversing with the owner who had prepared high tea for me. The tea selection was excellent, especially recommend the vanilla cream rooibos tea and the food was imaginative, had lovely flavor combinations and I left feeling quite full to boot! The knowledge of tea that the owner imparted to me not only made my tea choices more intelligent, but added to the overall ambiance of the experience. Thanks again Michele for introducing me to this gem of a find; I will certainly be back!

      My mom, myself, and some of her friends celebrated her birthday with high tea. I have experienced high tea several different places in downtown Chicago, and this place truly puts them to SHAME! Cindy, the owner of the tea shop personally sat down with me a few days prior to select a menu for the event, and give me her advice on seasonal delights. There are 3 courses, where you get to pick 12 different food items from nearly 100 choices...and that is just the food! High tea started with the owner personally giving us a seminar on EACH of the nearly 20 teas (a brief history or cute story on each, how it’s grown, which food it might nicely match up with, if better served iced or hot, etc.), and then passed the loose tea around for us to smell before selecting. Every person was able to pick a different tea with each course; that’s 3 different pots of tea per person. The tea was served in a unique cup, saucer and pot, and no two cups were alike at the table. We had a great time, the atmosphere was comfortably elegant and inviting, and as a bonus we left there smarter about tea in general. Did I also mention we definitely did NOT leave there hungry? The food and sweets were as delicious as the teas. This is a unique, quaint, treasure in the Suburbs, and a must visit!

The orange flavor was very nice, not overpowering. We each ordered a different sandwich to share and ordered another dish of finger sandwiches which gave us a great variety. I found Pickwick's to be have a very relaxing atmosphere where you can have a great cup of tea, a wonderful lunch, and enjoy the company you are with. Can't wait to go back!

      I came to Illinois from Nevada to celebrate my sister's birthday last Sunday. I won't say how many years old!!! The room was relaxing and having the different teas explained to us and being able to smell them helped us all make our decision. They even serve lemonade for people who don't drink tea. I chose the iced teas since it was a hot day but loved the fact that everybody gets a different designed tea cup. My favorite food was the veggie pizza, chocolate mousse in a chocolate cup, and the pumpkin bread. I don't live close enough to visit often but will return with my sister next time I'm in town.

      Having Just had 'Afternoon Tea' at the Drake last week, I am once again impresseed by the quality of the tea service at the Pickwick. The Pickwick gives you an enormous selection for both sweets and savory as well as generous proportions of both. You get to use real china (not the thick resaurant fare) and the tea itself is delicious. Service there is promp, yet not pushy and the ambience is very homey and comfortable. I could not imagine a better place for a special day out or even just a casual cup to sit and sip while reading a book or catcing up with friends.

There were only 3 of us, and yet I think we managed to try just about every tea they had (and there were plenty to be had!).

      My teenaged cousin and I came to the Pickwick to celebrate her birthday and we loved it! We have been to a number of Afternoon Teas before but never have we come away with so much 'tea knowledge!' The owner spends about 10 minutes with you at the onset, explaining about each tea they offer and letting you smell the little 'tester' jars of the loose leaf tea so you have a great idea of which ones you might like to try. The food was delicious and the opportunity to try a couple different teas, all included in your Tea price, was so nice. The atmosphere is homey and cute...not exactly elegant, though the food and teas rival those of the fancy hotels downtown. We will be back!

      What a wonderful dining experience! I recently took a group of seniors for High Tea. The staff was patient and friendly, The presentaion was great, and the food delicious. Our group really enjoy the educational tea presenation and the variety of teas to choose from. I would highly recommend this teahouse!

      This is a cottage house tea. I was delighted with the hostess's patient sharing of her tea knowledge. Unlimited tea in 3 or 4 types for each of our party of 3 resulted in a tea tasting comparable to wine tasting parties. I definitely walked away a wiser consumer.

      My family was so excited to hear of a quaint tea room near home. We tried it out early last year, and loved it so much my twin sisters booked their birthday party at the Pickwick the following month. It was delightful-great food, wonderful staff, and great memories. We have been loyal customers ever since. Cindy the owner is a doll, and I've learned alot about tea from her. Love the scones with homemade lemon curd and cream, it's absolutely delicious! I can't say enough about how we love it here, and my only complaint is that we don't go often enough!

      We were very impressed with the homey atmosphere of this Tea Room. The charm of the rooms pale next to the down to earth persooanlity of the owner. The hig tea comes with an education of teas and different teas with each course, which presented an opportunity to try things I would never tried. Green Teas, white teas, dessert teas. We were very impressed!

      Last weekend I threw an afternoon bridal tea for my sister at the Pickwick. Prior to making our tea selections we got to smell all of the teas and hear about their caffeine content and beneficial qualities. Because 2 of our party members are lactose-intolerant some of the food items had to be adjusted, which they were very helpful and cheerful about. We never felt like we were imposing on their good will. I would highly recommend Pickwick for any and all occasions. It's a really fun place to go without the stuffiness of some teahouses.

      This was the second time to Pickwick. I took my almost four year old daughter with me because she loves to play tea with her dolls and in the tub. She often asks me to join in at the most difficult time of day, dinner prep. To her delight, for just a little mommy daughter time, we left daddy and her brother at home for the afternoon to go have tea. It was so much fun! We had the bright sunny sunroom to ourselves! They brought a big 'tea bucket' out for her to play with while they prepared our lunch. WE each had our own menu to choose from and she even received her own sized teacup and saucer for her chocalate milk tea. We had a pleasant time together playing tea on the floor with the toys and the real thing at the table. It was a very memorible day with wonder food, I recommend the chicken salad. The staff was friendly and added to the special day. We'll be back soon!

      We came upon the Pickwick Society Tearoom quite by accident as the location we originally selected for our High Tea was 'on vacation.' What a wonderful surprise! The service was excellent. Very friendly. The explanation of the teas was something different and quite fun. The food -- fantastic!! We were so full that we had to divide up the pastries and take them home to enjoy later. We will definitely be back and look forward to introducing more friends to the Pickwick.

      Service was slower then slow. It took forever to get our food. One of the ladies at the table near us actually walked into the kitchen to ask what her holdup was. Food was so so (all you could hear in the dining room I was in was the sound of the microwave 'ding') small portions and over proced. The tea was cold. It also smelled like and tasted like a wet goat. On the plus side the menu and idea/design was cute. And, when we did see our waitstaff person, she was nice. What I can't understand was why it was crowded. My only conclusion was it is the only tearoom in the area and it is in a busy and popular shopping location. I would not go back again and I would not recommend it.

      From the moment you walk into the Pickwick Society Tea Room you experience fun. The adorable, feminine decorations create just the right setting for a girls day out - for girls of any age. The sunroom is adorable for a bit of privacy. The scones and lemon curd are a must have. It is truly a delightful place.

      Visiting the Pickwick for high tea was most enjoyable. Our party of 7 throughly enjoyed the wide selection of teas and the wonderful food. The service was excellent and their knowledge of the many kinds of tea was very impressive. We've attended other 'high teas' but this was the best by far.

      My husband and I went here on a cold day in January. He is from England so we thought what a treat. Definately not what we expect from a tea room. It's a great idea, however, the service was poor, the tea and food lacking and it needs more polish. It's fine for a children's party but I would not recommend it for adults.
