      The Victorian Parlor is the best tearoom in PA. We just had a terrific time at this Tea Room ! ! ! Thanks so much to Paula and her husband who are such wonderful hosts, the staff are all so nice, and the food is always excellent. This is a must see....

      Tearoom response:

      Cathy, You Classy Ladies in Red certainly are 'Classy'. We appreciate your returning to visit us and enjoy what we have to offer. Our home is open to you and your friends.

      Paula and Daryl were the most wonderful hostess and host for my daughter's Bridal Tea yesterday. They handled every detail with grace and sincere charm. Everything was perfect! Paula was even kind enough to take me into her office and find a notecard I needed for a last minute gift tag. Daryl served above and beyond as photographer when we needed him! Their enthusiasm was contagious and everyone marveled at their efforts. Their helpers were a delight as well. Thank you for an afternoon of beautiful memories created. We will be back!!! Many many Thanks!

      Tearoom response:

      Linda, when you entrust us with such an important occasion, we do our very best to make it very special for you. Your memories are our pleasure.

      The Victorian Parlor is the best tearoom I have ever been to. Paula and her husband are wonderful hosts, the staff are all so nice, and the food is always excellent. I can't understand why this tea room is rated as #3 when it should be #1. I have been here many times. The house is beautifully decorated for all the different seasons and the gardens in the back are beautiful! Please take my advice and make a reservation for tea. You won't be disappointed!

      What a wonderful spring visit to Victorian Parlor with three members of my family! I am always amazed at the service and the quality and quantity of the excellent food here - especially the chicken corn soup which is the best anywhere! Our thanks to Paula, Daryl and all the staff who work so hard to give us a mini-vacation every time we have tea at Victorian Parlor.

      Tearoom response:

      Roni, one thing is for sure, you do not leave the Parlor hungry. and it is all flavorful. Always pleased to serve our guests.

      This tea experience was THE best! The decor was absolutely charming and QUIET with lovely classical music playing SOFTLY in the background. All courses of food were presented beautifully.

      We loved the Victorian Teahouse. The decor is formal with lovely table settings. There are many stylish hats for both men and women. We enjoyed the delicious varieties of tea. The food was excellent and this is one of the few teahouses where one doesn't leave hungry . There is also a really nice gift shop. The friendly staff completes your visit. We'll see you again in April.

      My sister and I braved a bitter cold day on Saturday to have our first visit at The Victorian Parlor. As soon as we walked in, we were warmly welcomed and seated at our very elegant table. From the fruit cup to the desserts, everything was elegantly prepared and served. The strawberry tea was excellent! We enjoyed all 6 courses of fabulous food. And Daryl and Paula are excellent hosts.

      Tearoom response:

      Hope that we well rewarded your bravery, providing an awesome experience.

      Our Red Hat group has gone to several tea rooms over the years but The Victorian Parlor is the only one we have revisited (5-6 times) including today. This Tea Room is the best1 Today we had high tea with six courses - fruit cup, salad, scones, ham and cheese small sandwiches warm from the oven, soup, and then desserts. The teas used were brewed and one that was served tasted somewhat like egg nog and the other tea that was served was a plum spice tea. This is definitely a five-star tea room. Don't miss it1

      Tearoom response:

      Beth, it's quite special to have your group returning time and again. We enjoy having you as much as you love to come back to us. This time you got to enjoy our Christmas decorations, but don't forget all the other seasons to relish in. Thanks

      I went to the Victorian Parlor Tea Room on Saturday with 4 other girls to celebrate my birthday. This place is amazing. The Christmas decorations were up and they were so beautiful. The food was to die for. The honey sticky buns were the best I ever tasted. The one tea flavor was Pumpkin Spice. It was so delicious that no sugar was needed. Paula, Darrel and the girls do a fantastic job. They even had a candle on my dessert and brought a dancing bear for us to enjoy. Thank you Paula and gang for a splendid day.

      Tearoom response:

      Lynn, Thanks for taking the time to give your comments. So you like the honey buns and Pumpkin Spice tea, you and every body else. Hurry back to see us.

      We visited the Parlor today to celebrate a birthday. The tea was a Pumpkin Spice tea which was fabulous. There was also a cinnamon decaf tea which was good. The food is always wonderful with an interesting variety. While the servings do not seem to be large, we are always full before the dessert is served. The barley soup was wonderful. honey buns are to die for. and the dessert was very good even though I was too full to eat more! The Parlor is always a great location to meet and enjoy the great food and good service. We also were able to enjoy the Christmas Decor today. We had a great time.

      Tearoom response:

      Carol, Thanks for the glowing review. Good to see you girls again, always a pleasure to serve and wait on you all. Glad you enjoyed all the delicious food and tea. See you again soon.

      My, Wonderful, neighbor brought me to this pretty tea room, as she is a frequent visitor . Everyone made us feel so very welcomed and special. The six course meal was delicious! Fruit, cakes with clotted cream, salad, finger sandwiches, soup and finally a delicious dessert! The Peach tea, I Highly recommend . The Victorian Parlor was most enjoyed , from the foods and tea, to the relaxing sound of gently cascading water from the lovely koi pond, in the garden. .

      This place is absolutely fantastic! One of the few tea rooms that not only accepts children but makes them feel extra special! It's so warm and welcoming I can't wait to go back again. This is easily the #1 tea room!

      Tearoom response:

      Heather, Yes we do accept children because we believe that they have to start sometime. A little etiquette can go a long way. We appreciate parents and grandparents who want children to experience fine dining, but relaxing.

      The seven of us-ladies and girls-enjoyed such a lovely bridal shower for my granddaughter. The table was beautifully, elegantly set, the setting was quiet and private and such a treat for all. There was plenty of delicious tea and lemonade was provided for the younger guests. There were cute breads and sandwiches to fit the springtime theme. We appreciated welcoming hospitality and the group photo that Paula provided for us -It was an occasion to remember at this special time in our granddaughter's life.

      I have been to the Victorian Parlor twice this month. I enjoyed it so much the first time I want to take everyone I know to visit there. The Victorian Parlor is a warm and inviting place to visit. The decor is outstanding and the food is delicious. The staff is friendly. You will learn several things about the spring Grove area. Both Paula and Darryl keep you entertained as well. I have been to several other tea houses in this area and have to say The Victorian Parlor ranks at the top! Thank you Paula and Darryl for a beautiful experience. P.S. The gift shop is an extra treat when you visit.

      What an amazing place! It blew my mind as they were the kindest people I ever met and are the people you feel should own a tea house! The tea and food was excellent and we raved about the decor and the ability to take pictures as much as we wanted. I have been to many places who do not allow photography, but it was wonderful that they did! They went so far as to make us feel at home that they took pictures of us themselves and sent them to our emails. We learned some history and they were very kind, doing things personally for us and my best friend for her birthday! They even supplied us with lemonade as we are not big tea drinkers! The hats and decor were wonderful and the use of the garden and gazebo were a blessing! I would love to return again!

      Tearoom response:

      Abagail, What a glowing review you gave us. Hope all your pictures came out so you have many memories. We trust That lemonade should bring you back again, maybe soon.Christmas is a magical time.

      The Victorian Tea House is by far the best tea house I've been to ever. The decor is very Victorian and beautifully arranged. Paula and Daryl run a very nice business at the tea house. The teas are fantastic and the different courses are deliciously coordinated. Their Tomato Parmasan soup is to die for. If you are looking for a great place for a 'spot of tea', look them up in Spring Grove, PA, make a reservation and spend a very nice time with wonderful hosts.

      My friend and I had tea here this week. The atmosphere and tearoom itself is very well done in a beautiful Victorian style with 2 rooms to take tea in plus the garden gazebo. A great attention to detail - especially the Peacock room ,the garden and even the bathrooms are decorated. Paula and Darryl are friendly 'hosts with the most' and give you history of the home and photos in the room as well as serve you tea. The fruit cup, scones, soup and dessert are very delicious. The scones with the devonshire cream were my favorite. They have an amazing 6 courses! The gift shop is quaint and the china used is so pretty and presented well. I would highly recommend this tea room, and I intend to return in the future. My only criticism is the lack of any black tea( we were served green peach and raspberry)and other varieties of tea. It would be a nice addition to an already wonderful experience!

      Tearoom response:

      Jennifer, We appreciate your being able to notice all the detail involved in our decoration and food. Spiced chai was available and we should have offered another tea, we apologize.

      Paula has the BEST teas in our area. We had 6, I repeat 6, courses. The food is absolutely delicious. Paula and her crew are very friendly. You are not rushed to leave for the next customer to arrive. Her decorating talents are not to be missed. There is coordination throughout. Her gardens require extra time to thoroughly enjoy. How she packs all her goodies into her foods, gardens and decorating is beyond belief. It is definitely a Must Do Tea room.

      I have been to this tearoom multiple times and have never left dissatisfied. There is always a wide variety of delicious teas to enjoy as you are transported back to the Victorian era with the beautiful decor surrounding you. The staff never fails to make you feel welcomed and gives plenty of time so you can enjoy all of the courses. Best tearoom experience by far!

      Very cluttered overdone decor in rooms. Sweets were served before savories-like eating dessert before the meal. Weren't offered a choice of teas. A pot was brought to us. Felt a little rushed through. Not anywhere as nice as the tea room in Intercourse, PA. Sorry, not impressed.

      Tearoom response:

      Frankie, Thanks for your honest opinion of the visit you had with us. Sorry you were less than impressed with our Victorian décor, our scone plate, tea selections of which we always have multiple varieties, and the feeling that you were rushed.

The food and tea were excellent and presented at the perfect pace. The strawberry/vanilla combo tea was our favorite. Daryl gets a special thank you for the history and entertainment. We're already talking about returning in the summer to see the flowers in bloom. If you only go to one tea room in your life, make it this one. Paula and Daryl thank you so much!

      We love to visit tea rooms and this is the best one thus far! Paula and Daryl are delightful -- we left feeling like family and will definitely go back. The variety of food (all deliciously homemade) was terrific, and we loved the various courses. The two teas we had were a peach tea, then a Monks Mood (not sure I'm correctly remembering that name?). Both were delicious, and gave us two entirely different flavors. The Victorian decor, the hats (we did not intend to wear a hat but then found ourselves unable to resist and thoroughly enjoyed what that added to the experience), the gardens, and most especially the delightful hospitality, were unmatched by any place we've ever been before. We're already planning our next visit and will be bringing more friends with us each time!

      We chose this tearoom with great expectations given that it is rated the #1 tearoom in PA. Frankly we were disappointed. The other tearoom I have visited in PA is far superior in decor, service, and quality and variety of food and tea brought to the table. The chicken soup was good. But why the scones and other sweets were brought out before the soup and sandwiches was disconcerting to say the least. We were offered a pot of tea which was already on the table when we arrived. The chocolate scone and chocolate muffin were dry. The cranberry orange scone was pretty good. All in all we were very disappointed.

      Tearoom response:

      Frannie, We are so very sorry that you had a less than desirable experience at The Parlor. Being part of 51 guests on that particular day is one reason tea was on the table when you arrived. However, your tea is unlimited and we strive to make you what ever you would desire. Scones are served before sandwiches and soup so you don't have too much sweets at the same time and give your pallet variety throughout the 6 course tea. We probably did not give the attention necessary to make sure that your needs were met and we do apologize.

The Victorian Parlor was such a treat. The house and garden are decorated in such detail, you really feel at home, and never want to leave. We loved that the owner’s attention to detail and special touches to make our visit a true experience – the hats that you can select from and wear made the experience extra special. We had a wonderful time! The tea was very good, the food excellent and the service superb. I will definitely pay another visit with my Mom, Aunts and Cousins.

      I come from Italy and my aunt thought that I would enjoy this tea house, and of course I did! When you enter there`s a tiny gift shop and on the left you find a tea room. I way breathless when I set foot in there! Everything was decorated perfectly, the silverware was marvelous and the food was delicious! The thing I enjoyed most were the hats (as the owner noticed). So many different ones to choose from! I had to continuously change them every time a new dish was brought out. And of course the tea was great! We had eggnog, cinnamon vanilla and, my favourite, peach and mango. The food was served at a nice relaxing pace which is a nice change from the general rush here in the states. This is a very nice place and I loved the relaxing and intimate atmosphere. If I`m ever coming back to the USA this is a place I MUST go back to!

      Just got back from my annual Christmas tea with my high school girlfriends. Both the eggnog and cinnamon tea were excellent. They never cease to amaze me with how beautiful the dining areas are decorated! The food is amazing and plentiful. I have visited most of the other tearooms in our area and they simply do not compare. From the relaxed atmosphere to the friendly owners and staff the entire experience is nothing short of delightful! This year they had their grandsons helping in the dining room and they looked so handsome in their dress pants and shirts. What a wonderful experience for all!!

      I had purchased gift certificates for my 2 sisters and our mom for Christmas last year. We finally got everyone together to visit this lovely tearoom on November 3. We had a relaxing and fun experience. First of all, the tearoom is beautiful. There are 2 dining areas; the large area was decorated for autumn at the time, and another was decorated with beautiful peacock accessories. It is a stunning room, and I am now redecorating with this theme in my own dining room, although I know I won't duplicate the beauty of Paula's touch. The large dining area was so pretty too, and I am sure it would be gorgeous during the Christmas season and other times. Paula was so dear and accomodating, giving us a tour of the rooms plus explaining the interesting family history of the old photographs on the walls. We chose our hats to wear during the tea and that set the tone for the 4 of us to relax and laugh together. We had a delicious 6-course meal along with blackberry and cinnamon teas. We had a fresh fruit salad, a selection of different tea pastries and scones with Devonshire cream, fresh salad, hot creamy tomato basil soup, an assortment of tea sandwiches, and a dessert of cake. We were full by the middle of the tea, but continued to indulge in the delicious meal. It was so refreshing to sit and relax in such a beautiful setting. Paula's husband, Daryl, was a great host as well. There is a shopping area on the enclosed porch with lots of neat things you could purchase. Even the powder room was a sight for tired eyes...very beautiful with the lavender tones. We would definitely return to this tearoom. The outside gardens were so pretty too, and I am sure during the spring and summer it is great to sit out there as well. The whole experience made us feel extra special that day. Thank you to Paula and Daryl.

      Kathy, Oh my, how can I possibly add anything to what you have already said. Thank you, if we need an advertising campaigh we are going to contact you.

I will definately go back! An excellent choice!

      I brought a group of ladies to the Tea Room 2 weeks ago and they are still raving about the experience and telling others what they missed! The food was delicious and plentiful, and Paula and Daryl could not have been more gracious to each one of us. Because so many could not make the trip on a Wednesday, we are returning in the Spring on a Thursday. When I told the ladies who had gone last month that I was having another trip to the Tea Room, some immediately said 'I'm going again!' Thank you again for a wonderful time!

      This was a return visit for me. My 7 year old cousin told her grandmother that she would like to have a tea party. My mother, sister, aunt and cousin went to see wonderful Paula and Darrell at The Victorian Parlor. If was even more beautiful with its Victorian decor and beautiful gardens then I remembered. We are from the area and know the house prior to Paula and Darrell purchasing it. Darrell filled us in and showed us pictures of the place before. Elizabeth had a wonderful time picking a hat that just fit perfect. She giggled at the hats the rest of us chose. We enjoyed the wonderful food. It was a very special treat for all of us. Paula is such a wonderful hostess and so willing to share stories with us. Thanks of a great time.

      The quality of this Tea Room is just excellent. There is nothing average about it. From the moment you leave your car, and enter the garden, you are taken with it's beauty. As a Victorian lover, my Granddaughter and I had a wonderful experience. We took many pictures inside and out, to have for our memory book. Finishing everything on our plates, is not something we usually do......but everything was so good, the wish for more was there with every part of this high tea. Paula's husband, just made you feel like you were the only one in the Tea House, and that made you feel very special. After finishing we spent over an hour trying on every Bling Bling, scarf, and hat we took a fancy to. After making our purchases, we took our last look at the beautiful garden before leaving. Paula was just the most personable owner I have ever met. It was a wonderful Birthday for me, and a very special treat for my Granddaughter, who had never been to a Tea House. We will return to this special place again. Jeanette

      Tearoom response:

      I have been a customer to the tea house for many years now. My family, friends and I usually have tea 2 - 4 times a year. I have always had the most wonderful, relaxing and happy times. When you walk in, you immediately feel like you are visiting a great friend. Everyone there is so nice and warm. Until 8/8/08 my mother would always join our group. Since she has passed away, my daugther and I, and sometimes others, make it a point to go to the tea room to celebrate my wonderful mother. We always feel happy and content when we leave. Thanks to Paula and everyone for making every trip special!

      Try them! you will love them! Like many reading this we have enjoyed varied tea rooms. For us these include England, Ireland, and Victoria, B.C. Paula and Darrell rank with any for their their décor,graciousness,and the taste of the varied offerings. The six course High Tea was an elegant and refreshing affair. Take pleasure in choosing your seating. Indoors the Victorian décor includes diverse hats to try on. Ladies wearing “their” hat lend a festive atmosphere. Outdoors, is a gazebo that sits amidst a delightful garden. Watch out for the blue heron near the waterfall pond! Originally I only chauffeured my mom and wife. Once Mom was seated I retreated to a local café for a simple repast and time for quiet reflection. Paula’s invitation to return was motivated by her delight in serving and sharing; not to earn more money. Let Paula and Darrell pamper you in a oasis that we will return to regardless of the distance.

      

      I had an Aunt visiting from Florida who had one wish during her visit….to go to a Victorian Tea Room that would take her back in time. I’ve never been to a tea room before and so I asked my daughter to research this. She suggested the Victorian Parlor even thought it was an hour and a half away. So off we went on July 5th, never giving thought that we may need a reservation. After our long drive we rang the bell and the owner asked if we had a reservation. When I said no and that there were five of us, she asked for a moment, checked and came back “we may have just enough” and requested a few moments to put things together. She did urge us to have a reservation next time as they may not always be able to accommodate. We all were very impressed with the atmosphere, service and food. We couldn’t finish and took our dessert to go. Each course was excellent in both taste and presentation. As the instigators we are, we started the hat craze in the dining area. There are so many fun hats to wear during your stay, we tried most of them. Others in the room began to join in as well and everyone had a great time. We were there for more than 2 hours and then spent time in the shop and the garden out back. This was such a treat and one that we are planning on going back too soon. This time we will try for the Peacock Room. It was such a great day. All I can say is fabulous!

      Tearoom response:

      Laura, Wow! What a lucky day for you that we had a table for you and enough food. I remember the panic setting in as you and your family came through the front door. It was meant to be that we were able to serve you. Come back soon.

      In mid-June St John Lutheran Church,traversed from Baltimore to enjoy and celebrate our 4th annual afternoon tea. The experience was wonderful beginning with Paula greetings us at the door and having everything ready. Every single course was delightful from the fruit salad to the strawberry shortcake. The teas were wonderful and Daryl kept the pots filled. The garden was in full bloom and many enjoyed sitting outside after tea and shopping. Many of those who were returning participants commented that everything was even better than before. For one new guest she expressed this was her 'new favorite tearoom.' Whether the group is large or small (and I have been there with a few friends), the hospitality, food, and gardens make for a most memorable experience (take your camera).

      I have been to about 15 different tea rooms in the past five years, but this one continues to remain my favorite by far. I have been to the Victorian Parlor 6 times, and the taste and presentation of the food is always outstanding and impressive. The owners and staff always make a point to interact with each group/table present that day. The atmosphere is friendly, fun, and upbeat. The backyard is one of my favorite features of the Victorian Parlor. The hard work and effort put into maintaining such a beautiful scenery definately deserves respect. The waterfall fish pond, numerous flower beds, and unique decor make for a great background for pictures afterwards. I would recommend this Parlor to anyone and everyone, which I continue to do. The Victorian Parlor continues to amaze and impress me each and every time.

      My three sisters and I visited the tearoom the other day and were very pleased to walk into the past enjoying every moment with our delicous food start to finish as well the entertainment provided by the host and hostess of the tearoom. having a hat on our heads just filled us with a feeling of 19th century and reminders of our great aunts, grandmother who wore these hats with pictures of the past. We laughed and reminenced about those gone before us, all the family photos put us in a comfy mood. The food provided us with each a taste of wonder and just enough leaving us to want another return when we are in the area again. I feel this was the highlight of my trip and hope the tearoom will be open for many more trips and fond memories to come. Thank you!!!

      Exquisite 'Tea' Dining Experience! Two years in a row for us to celebrate Valentine's Day(Sat.evening), with a group of longtime friends. Everything about these evenings, and prior 'Tea' times were quite impressive, and full of memories. The most delicious courses of food were presented to us arranged like 'works of art'. Looking forward to return visits, and seeing what's new in the beautiful gift shop. Many thanks to the owners and staff.

      I received a call from the owner apologizing for an overcharge of $2.80 by default and would refund - how about keeping it for seed propagation for another visit? We thoroughly enjoyed the atmospher, service, food, and hosting reception. We could not have encountered a better experience. One will always have personal preferences but again that can be a passing whim and know that not everything will be as expected as I have visisted many tearooms and have my own teas occasionally so it is important to allow for differences and preferences that give dimension and variety in the occasion. Thanks for the wonderful experience - especially for the one lady who was with me experiencing a tearoom for the first ever.

      Tearoom response:

      Ruby, so glad you allowed yourself to enjoy the experience and bring a new tea member also. Hope you will return.

      We were looking forward to our first visit to The Victorian Parlor for a Formal Birthday Tea with 16 friends and family in honor of our Grandaughter, as she turned five. What a wonderful time was had by all, in the 'Valentine' decorated Tea Room, that included 10 adults and 6 children, ages 3 to 7. The victorian decor was a feast for the eyes, with it's beautiful furnishings & table settings, comfortable seating, and charming wall decorations in every nook and cranny that all provided such a cozy and hospitable atmosphere for tea! After selecting hats from the huge selection available, there was time for a wonderful tour of the other tea rooms and gift shop, before our 6-course formal tea began. The meal was accompanied by Peach Tea, with cozy's on the pots to keep the tea warm. What a delight it was to taste and savor each course's flavors that included a cherry flavored fruit salad, fresh garden salad with a Poppyseed dressing, sweets that included scones and devonshire cream, coffee brownies, and blueberry cake slices, tea sandwhiches of chicken salad & cole slaw, along with an out-of-this-world ham and cheese croissant, a choice of beef barley or chicken and rice soup, finished off with mouth-watering peaches and cream, or carrot cake. The meal exceeded all expectations! Our service provided by Paula and Daryl was superb and hospitable, as was the serving staff's efforts to please all the ages who attended the tea party. The unexpected offering of coffee for those who were so inclined, the surprise gift for each of the children, and the interesting history of the Tea Room's Property shared by Host Daryl as he moved from table to table, were so appreciated! This is by far THE nicest Tea Room in the states of Maryland and Pennsylvania, out of all we have visited through the years, with it's charming appearance, outstanding service and hospitality, delicious tea and coffee, and the quality,flavors, and food preparation of all foods we sampled while there on Sunday. We will definitely recommend The Victorian Parlor to family and friends, and look forward to a return visit for another life celebration in the future! What a blessing this tea experience was for all of us, and we can't wait to sample more of their tea choices in the future! Hoping to enjoy seeing the outdoor property with it's garden and waterfalls during warmer weather! Blessings to Paula and Daryl for their tender loving care of our group on Sunday!

      Good Morning, Just a note to let you know that my first visit to the Victorian Parlor was absolutely delightful! I have been to tea rooms in the past but none compare to this. First of all the amount of food you get is unbelievable and it was delicious! From start to finish every course satisfied your appetite. I must say that the fruit compote was my favorite and the soup was a close second. I have never had beef that tender! Paula was an exquisite hostess and Daryl our host was interesting to listen to with his knowledge on the history of the home and surrounding area. Paula also has a knack for decorating. The Parlor was gorgeous and I am so looking forward to spring and summer to see the beautiful gardens that my friends were commenting about. I can't wait to have tea in the gazebo! I used to drive by that home and hope to one day have tea, so now that wish is fulfilled and I will be back most definitely. Thanks again for a wonderful afternoon. Sincerely, Kim Fink

      I have been to a number of tearooms over the years, and this one is my favorite. I brought my parents there today, and we all enjoyed it so very much. All six (yes, six!) courses of the meal were delicious and filling. First was a fruit compote, then salad, a selection of scones served with devonshire cream, tea sandwiches, choice of 2 hearty soups, and choice of 2 cakes. The cinnamon tea and vanilla/caramel teas were excellent. The staff and atmosphere provide such a warm and hospitable feeling. I also must say the Christmas decorations were just beautiful - they far exceeded my expectations. I look forward to my next visit, which should be soon!

      Absolutely a wonderful experience! A friend and I belong to a tea group and enjoy the experiences. First, quickly I want to tell you that we had plans to go to the Fox Ridge Farm gift shoppe and tea in Stewartstown. Upon arriving the owner was not even there during the stated business hours after over an hour drive! The poorest of customer service. Do not go there! So we detoured to Spring Grove to see if our favorite tea house could accomodate us. Since we were in this predicament we did not have the phone number so we were just stopping in unannounced. When we arrived a man stood smiling, very inviting and dressed so nicely. We don't see that much anymore either. We asked if they had room for us. He was so polite and they joyously sat us and served us. The food as always was sooooo good! Great service and a beautiful place. They could not have been any better about it. We loved it and enjoyed our experience there. One server even went out of her way to say to us..I am glad you could join us! We were thrilled and it made our bad experience from earlier change to a great day. So thank you very much Victorian Tea house. We will be back again!

      I came with two friends. We were very pleasantly surprised by the surroundings and the food. The only drawback was that the cranberry scones were not done, and that the soup was served as the fifth course. We would have preferred it served as the second or third course. However overall we liked it very much and we will probably be back.

      Tearoom response:

      Karin, so sorry that we were not perfect for your tastes. We try to vary the courses so that you don't have the same textures. Hope you do come back and give us another try.

The home and its historic significance was explained and even the authentic photos and wall hangings had relevance to the area and the era.

      A delightful experience, well worth the 1.5 hrs drive from Buckeystown MD. A first class victorian tea room offering the freshest of fare, served on great china. The host and hostess truly love what they are doing and it sows up in all the details. The atmosphere was serene and elegant. The fruit and summer salads were yummy and complex in flavour. My favourite item was an egg custard to die for. Gift room items were very reasonable - cheaper than many if not all the tea rooms that I have been too.

      I recently accompanied a bus group from our church for the second time to the tearoom. The food was outstandingly delicious and the service was fantastic, especially when you are preparing and serving for 62 people! Paula and her assistants made everyone feel special, while explaining and addressing her presentation of courses. Everyone experienced the joy of afternoon tea and cannot wait to return. Hope to see you again next year!

      Tearoom response:

      Your group is always so very welcome and trust you do come back. There were plenty of new guests with your grop and we are always happy for everyone.

      My wife and I with friends enjoyed a fantastic high tea at high noon. We have visited many venues for high tea and this was one of the best. The hostess was gracious and very helpful in informing us of what we could expect. The ambience was charming, the service was first class, the food was fresh, and the appearance of the food was done very well. Also, the scones were warm and delicious. We even refused a kind offer for seconds, because we were full. We had a delightful afternoon.

      Tearoom response:

      Harold, love that you were too full for seconds,that says that you get plenty of food.As you have been to many tearooms we really appreciate your reccomendations. Come again.

We had a great time trying on all the hats and lunch was a delight. Each course was scrumptious. My personal favorites were the fruit, salad,vegetable tea sandwiches, egg custard and scones and lets not forget those potato chips. Service was prompt and friendly. They even packed up a 'Tea' to go for my other daughter who was unable to attend. I will definitly return with friends! Nice Job!

      I have been to many tea rooms, both around the area and in other states. As a former manager of a 5 star b and b in Gettysburg that also served high tea for special occasions, my standards are very high, I am very particular, and I have specific food allegies. So, going anywhere can sometimes be a pain. The Victorian Parlor has now moved to the top of my list!! Presentation is key to me and the VP has thought of everything. The decor takes one from the bustling 2010 back to the 1800's as soon as you enter the back gate. Paula is quick to point out the photos of ancestors all about and allows time to brouse before and after your tea. There is so much to take in, all of it lovely and perfectly placed. Many beautiful things are for sale; tea cups and pots, jewelry and scarves, books and note cards, the list goes on. Fancy hats are available to make a girl feel even more special than she did just by coming here. Paula and Daryl are most gracious hosts and are available to tell stories or answer questions, and they know when to allow guests their private time. The FOOD!!!! There are not enough words or space to tell you all about it. Delicious, decadent, mouth-watering, plentiful, perfect presentation, etc., I could go on and on. (I think I already have). I took a friend for her birthday and they made the whole experience a celebration...and a dessert in the middle of a meal (YUM). Not only would I go back but I will tell everyone I know that this is the place!! I'm looking forward to later in the spring, when all the flowers are in bloom, so I can sit outside in the gazebo or under an umbrella and have tea with my husband (yes, there is even enough food for a man!) or another special friend. Thank you Paula and Daryl...you sure got it right !!

      Tearoom response:

      Ellen, WOW!! How can we respond to the best review we've had to date. Thank you so much for all the glowing comments and pointing out things that we take forgranted as just normal everyday tasks. We will be looking forward to your soon return.

      What a fabulous experience, a few weeks ago, I was invited along with 11 other guests for a friends birthday and was ho hum about the idea of a tea house figuring at least I would not over eat for lunch. Well I was blown away by the fantastic 6 course lunch beginning with fresh fruit cup to pasta salad salad to wraps, scones, ginger and lemon bread, soup and finally the delicious apple cake. The Strawberry tea was incredible. We had a wonderful time. The proprietors Paula and Daryl are an awesome couple. The place is beautifully decorated with so many things to admire and might I add maticulously clean. The outdoor grounds are an additional plus to this victorian gem and I cannot wait to see the spring flowers in bloom. I enjoyed it so much I am taking a longtime girlfriend there for her Birthday tomorrow. And I already have plans to bring other friends for their birthdays. What a jewel of a tea house and I am so happy that I live only 20 minutes away in York. If I did not live so close I would tell you it is worth the drive for a visit.

      My friend I enjoy going to a different tea room every month. We drove 90 minutes to come to the top rated tearoom on teamap.com. Let me say first off, it was WONDERFUL! There was only one thing I can nitpick at. We were only offered two types of tea. We didn't ask if they had more selection, so I can't say if they did or not, I just enjoy looking over a tea list. The tea we had was lovely, though. The service was quite friendly, especially who I assume was Daryl (I'm horrible with remembering names) The food was OUTSTANDING. The date scone was to die for as was our apple dessert. I loved the pasta salad salad! Well, I loved pretty much everything. My friend and I were STUFFED walking out. Thank you!

      What a fabulous Sunday tea! The atmosphere is spectacular with all the lovely decor, inclusive of a variety of wonderful hats and fur shawls. The owners and other staff were professional, pleasant, and took the time to converse with us. We had the choice of Vanilla Caramel and Orange Spice teas. Both of these were tried and both were good, but the Vanilla Caramel was the winner. I am used to being able to select from a variety of teas at other parlors. I'm guessing that because our hosts accommodated us on a Sunday (not normal hours of operation) while entertaining a large bus group, the tea offerings were scaled down to those two selections? No worries here though. The 1st, 2nd, and 5th courses were par for the course. All delicious standards. But, courses 3, 4, and 6 are what nudged them past other local parlors. You will not find any one note sweets, sandwiches, or desserts here! Come. Don a hat and shawl. Bring friends, family, or that special someone. And, enjoy a good cuppa. We'll be back for sure.

      The Victorian Parlor is the best tea room ever!! It is our favorite! Paula and Darryl are wonderful hostess and host and we always love getting a chance to chat a bit with them. The tearoom itself is a special place with all the lovely victorian decorations and is very relaxing. The flowers and gardens are always so beautiful too! The food is awesome and so filling! I have never been disappointed in all the times we have come to The Victorian Parlor.It is hard to say what I liked best today...it was all delicious! The meatball finger sandwich and the eggsalad on sourdough bread were both yummy! I always love the fruit salad too! Today I brought 2 new friends to the tea room and they both loved it. I am excited that in just 8 days I will be back!! Then again a couple weeks after that. How lucky am I to be able to visit your tea room 3 times in a little over 3 weeks!? I really enjoy getting groups together and I am always proud to bring them to The Victorian Parlor! Thank you Paula and Darryl for all you do to make your tea room so special and for all the wonderful food you make. I have recommended your tea room to many people in the Baltimore area and will continue to do so to anyone I know.

      Tearoom response:

      Linda, we enjoy each time that you come to visit with us. Bringing other new people that have not been with us prior. Seeing your family grow is special for us. Look forward to your next visit.

      After visiting many tearooms, The Victorian Parlor definitely rates #1. Owners Paula and Darryl always go out of the way to make everyone's experience special. Beautifully decorated in the victorian theme it's name designates, elaborate table settings with beatiful tea cozies, a small novelty shop for tea lovers, and beautiful outdoor grounds give any guest an afternoon to remember. The teas served are by the guests choice. The courses are fixed, but I can honestly say I have not put anything in my mouth that I haven't absolutely loved. It's an experience I recommend to everyone. I have returned to The Victorian Parlor on many occasions and have nothing but their praises to sing. Kudos on a job that you both obviously love doing!! I'll be back soon!!!!

      The teas offered were peach apricot & French vanilla. Both were excellent, but the flavor of the vanilla enhanced the flavors of the food, especially the scones. The scones & pastries were still warm and absolutely melted in your mouth. All of the food served was excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant. It was very calm and conducive to sitting and chatting. There was another very large group at the teahouse on the day that I was there, but my group was unaware of their presence until we were leaving. The host & hostesses were friendly, outgoing, and excellent at customer service. It was a wonderful experience in every aspect.

      It give me great pleasure to write this review. I am the 'Queen Mom' for the 'Chesapeake Chicks' and I recommended this tea room to the little 'Chickies' after reading various reviews and word of mouth. We drove over 60 miles on back roads in a driving rain, but it was well worth the effort. I will surely come again and sit in the lovely garden on a sunny day. Not only the outside was pleasant to look at, but the interior was also inviting. I felt like we were stepping back in the Victorian Era. The food which was served in a gracious manner, was not only delicious, but attractive also. Time was spent between each entree to savor that meal. I had forgotten Paula's husband's name, but what a wonderful host he was and shared with us the background this old building. Paula is a #1 cook in my book. If you go, or should I say, when you go, try the Cream of Broccili Soup. Superb!!! I am already planning my next outing with my 24 yr. old granddaughter. Thank you for the 'Fastastic Job' that you do over and over again every day.!!! Charlotte

The setting was just lovely, both inside and out (we sat in the garden near the waterfall). The food was ample and delicious, with a wonderful soup that many tearooms don't offer. The hosts and staff were warm and welcoming, even when we came late (we called)--they were gracious and most accommodating. I look forward to returning, knowing my sisters will love the experience. And do yourself a favor and try the peach apricot tea, you won't regret it!

      The Victorian Parlor Tea Room is truly a unique experience. My friends and I went quite a distance to enjoy this lovely place; it was recommended by a member of the Harford County Tea Club as 'the Best Tea Room in the area. I give teas for our church ladies and love trying to make everything exactly like a classic English tea. I mentioned to the proprietor that she did everything EXACTLY as I have always said I would if I had my own tea room - with extreme attention to detail, making the experience a true 'step back in time.' The food, the atmosphere, the personal attention given by those serving - obviously the owners enjoy people and enjoy what they are doing. WONDERFUL!!!

      I recently celebrated a milestone birthday and would not have selected any other place to relax with a few friends and family members than the Victorian Tea Parlor. Having been there before, I knew the service would be great and I would get the royal treatment. Paula and Darrell went out of their way to make the event extra special for us all. Our little group was having such a good time we were still there after all the other parties had left. The owners did not rush us or make us feel like we were holding them up. Actually they showed us all around and give us a little history lesson on the house itself. Paula even had a beautiful birthday cake for me, made like a hat with flowers and a bow! And that was in addition to the dessert on the menu that day. The food is always good and all the different table decorations and place settings are so interesting. Paula and Darrell really have the gift of hospitatlity. Go and enjoy it yourself!

      What can I say?! The Victorian Parlor is the best tea room in the area. I have visited many times, bringing family and friends to share in the delightful experience with me. I have always had a memorable time. From the delicious food, varietal teas (both hot and iced), historic ambiance, attentive service and the hospitality of the owners and hosts, Paula and Darrell, each experience was unique and enjoyable. Last year I hosted my sister's bridal shower in a quaint private room available for small groupings. What a fabulous time that was. Paula and Darrell went out of their way to serve our every need. We all were able to enjoy ourselves. If you're trying to decide which tea house to visit first, make it the Victorian Parlor.

      I returned to the Victorian Parlor for the second time in as many months--this time with my Red Hat group-the Red Hot Ladybugs of Shippensburg, PA. We were greeted pleasantly when we arrived and were treated to a sumptuous 6-course Tea. The food was delicious and the atmosphere spoke of spring with its pastels and pink accents. Such fun to see all the hats on the walls and accenting the corners. You will have a quality experience at The Victorian Parlor. Well done!

      My family and I live in the Spring Grove area and I first tried The Victorian Parlor about two years ago at the recommendation of a friend. I absolutely loved it and have been back many times with friends and family members. Paula and Darrell are wonderful people and make you feel at home from the time you come in until you leave. The rooms are beautifully decorated all year round (Paula makes every Holiday season special with her exquisite decor). They have a nice variety of teas to offer and the food is outstanding! If you want to experience a tea room that gives you lovely atmosphere, tasty tea, delicious food, and warm hospitality, visit The Victorian Parlor in Spring Grove, PA -- you won't be disappointed.

      Very clean. Very pretty. Gift shop on premises. Gift items very reasonably priced. We had orange spice tea and vanilla tea for our first course. We were served a poppy seed salad for the second course. Third course: scones, cinamon pastries, chocolate mint confections, and a fruit pastry. Fourth course a delicious beef soup with what tasted like delicious old fashioned home made noodles. I didn't ask because I was to distracted by the sumptuous flavor! It must have been made with fresh beef. No bullion or base could have tasted that perfect. Fifth course was spinach quiche and a delicious ham and cheese tea sandwich. Finally for my 18 year old's birthday and our sixth course we were given our choice of two types of cake. My girl's was delivered with a sparkling candle and a teddy bear that sang a funny happy birthday song to her. (What a blessing - she didn't have to be embarassed by my singing publicly!) There was a good variety of food and all was so fresh and delicious. Pastry was flaky and cakes were moist and fluffy. Salad was fresh and crisp. The Victorian Parlor is located in the first house built in town, we were told. It has been lovingly cared for and is decorated in a Victorian style. There are hats avilable for picture moments. It was quiet and relaxed. We dressed in dresses, but you can come casual and not feel out of place. You can make it as formal as you like also. There was ample blacktop parking in the back of the shop, as well as metered parking on the street in front of the teahouse. The owner was so kind and tended to our needs. She stopped what she was doing to greet us when we entered. She brought food and gave us the description of each item and didn't linger. If we had a question she took time to answer. She read our needs very well and didn't intrude, yet met our needs sufficiently. We were all full and pleased when we left. We enjoyed shopping and then looking at the beautiful back yard with a gazebo, goldfish pond, and terrace area. I came here years ago as part of a tea tour and was glad to find it on the internet to come visit today.

      Tearoom response:

All the tables were decorated so beautifully for the holiday. The food was one delight after another, everything was delicious and was somehow related to the holiday.

      Very quaint with, obviously, a Victorian flavor in decor. Two type of teas were offered throughout our lunch, both were very good. One was vanilla and the other a cranberry. A six course lunch was offered; starting with a fruit cup, then a plate of delicious homemade chocolate scones, chocolate muffins and cranberry bread. We then moved on to a delicious salad, followed by tea sandwiches of chicken salad and wraps. We then had a homemade beef noodle soup, which was followed by the most wonderful dessert of a light and airy type pound cake with a pineapple cream filling in the middle, a whipped cream topping, drizzled with a raspberry sauce. Delicious. And the atmosphere is very warm, with the owners themselves helping to serve their patrons. They also showed us an original photograph of the building that they occupy, telling us the history which dates back to the early 1800s. They also expressed an interest in us personally, asking where we were from, if we were celebrating something special and how we might be related. The overall experience was wonderful. I wasn't sure I was going to like before going. I am not a fussy kind of person and I thought I might not enjoy all the 'girliness' of the experience. But I enjoyed it a whole lot and we are planning on meeting there again another time. Oh, and hats galore. Wear one! It adds a specialness to the affair. A very relaxing experience.

      The Victorian Parlor in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, is a wonderful place to visit - it's like a step back in time! The decor is truly Victorian in style and appearance. It has a very friendly atmosphers and promotes a place of peace and tranquility. The food is prepared fresh and is delicious. The food tea is both generous and memorable. The owners, Daryl and Paula, are most accommodating and very attentive along with the servers. The tea is a loose tea served in China tea pots with a cozy to keep it hot. There are 2 types of loose tea offered daily. Or, if you prefer something different, just ask your server! They will make every accommodation possible. I return often to The Victorian Parlor and take both family and friends. Visiting The Victorian Parlor is always a special time with family and friends alike. I plan on returning often. P.S. There is no waste management facility in Spring Grove. The odor experienced in the town is from the town's paper mill, Glatfelter Pulpwood Company. The odor cannot be detected from the interior of the tea room and does not in any way effect the excellence of the tea room.

    • Athena Dalrymple

      

      The place is one of the best I've been to for tea and I've been as far as the Victoria, Canada and the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong for high tea. The atmosphere is charming with a nice garden out back (though it does back to a waste management facility, unfortunately; while the stench was bad in town, the aroma inside the tea parlor was delightful, so don't let the surrounding smell deter you from this place) and hats hanging all around that people can wear while having tea (they will even sell some of them - ask if interested; I bought one and got lots of nice compliments on it later that day) and other nice gifts for sale in the place (not just in the front room). The servers were all pleasant, and the six courses we had included: 1. Fruit salad with a coconut glaze that was very tasty 2. Salad with lettuce on the outside edge and pasta in the center (a rare combination for a salad, and very nice with the dressing used) 3. One of each of six treats (Rice Krispee treat with banana slice and strawberry sauce on top that was much better than usual Rice Krispee treats; warm brownie cake that was very good; warm Monkey bread that was really delicious; raspberry scone that was too crumbly for the cream it was served with but still delicious; and one I've forgotten, but am pretty sure there were six) 4. Two little open-faced sandwiches: Cucumber and tomato was one and egg salad was the other; it seemed odd to still be eating after all the treats, and these little sandwiches were my least favorite of the six courses, but perhaps the most similar to what one thinks of when one thinks of food at high tea 5. A very tasty chicken and carrot cream soup (I was too full from the food before it to quite finish, but it was plenty good enough to finish for those with bigger stomachs) 6. A strawberry-pineapple cake that was the best of this kind of cake I've had anywhere in my life...I usually don't even like cakes with pineapple in them but this was so scrumptious that even completely full, I forced myself to enjoy almost the entire good-serving size of the dessert. There were only two teas to choose from (vanilla and decaf strawberry), but both were good, and they were refilled in fairly good time when empty. I would love to try the place for dinner if we lived closer (we live about 90 minutes away).

      THe Victorian Parlor is in a delightful old building, and is decorated from top-to-bottom inside with Victorian embellishments. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I thought having the soup served as the 5th course seemed out of place, but it was very delicious! My only suggestion would be to use whole tea leaves instead of tea bags . . .they yields a richer brew. All told, a very nice place to visit!

      The Victorian Tea Parlor is our Red Hat Chapter's (Phenomenal Friends) favorite tea parlor. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is excellent. We visited today, December 6, and have been there many times before, not only with our Red Hatters, but with relatives, other groups and other friends. The Christmas decorations and gifts are tops. Paula and Darryl are a hoot. Absolutely a must to do. Love it!

      We visited the Victorian Tea Parlor on Saturday, December 1, 2007. We had a fabulous time. The tea was outstanding, the food was scrumptious, and our hostess, Paula and host, Darryl were so pleasant and accomodating. The tea room was lovely, and the Christmas decorations were absolutely beautiful. We also found various treasures in their gift shop. If you are looking for a tea room that has it all, the Victorian Tea Parlor in Spring Grove is the place to go.

      I was at the Tea Room on 10/13/07 with the Twilight Red Hatters from Baltimore. The outdoor area is beautiful. There is a pond with fish, a gazebo, flowers, chairs and tables and benches are located throughout this area. The entire place was decorated with an autumn theme including all the dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the Tea Room. Making the arrangements with Paula and Daryl was a pleasant experience.

      I was visiting with the Twilight Red Hatters from Baltimore, MD. This was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend this tea room to anyone. The tea room was decorated wonderfully in the victorian style and every course served to us was better than the previous one. The owners, Paula & Daryl, and their staff made this a memorable time and I look forward to visiting again.

      THe Victorian Parlor is my absolute favorite tea room. I have always been so thrilled with the friendly owners, Paula & Daryl, and their helpers. The food that they prepare surpasses any other tea rooms that I have visted. I hosted my sister's baby shower their with a 'Baby is Brewing' theme and they did all the work,s o I could enjoy the day. I highly recommend The Victorian Parlor.

      I have visited the tearoom several times, the food is always very good. This time I felt it took too long between courses, we waited entirely too long. I was with a Birthday party and we were charged a large gratuity, way to much for a tip. It was not quoted before hand. I will not be returning.

      Always good cheer, however the experience took an astronomical 2.75 hrs. Come on, we were waiting in between courses forever. Also, our party was over 10, we were informed that day that there is an addition charge per person. If the tea cost $16.95 why should we pay $24.00 a head. Thats quite a tip wouldn't you say. My last trip there

      This tearoom was wonderful. The ambience was wonderful and relaxing and our hosts were very nice. The food was delicious. I would add one comment though - instead of sugar packets, add the lumps of suger to the tea. It really gets you into the mood of a tea party. We were not offered a variety of tea to select from and had to ask for something different. Overall, this place was very good.

      The owners were so attentive to every detail of the bride's day. The setting was elegant, and well worth the trip. A great deal of care in the service was apparent, from each tier of the goodies, to the genuine warmth and hospitality into their home!

      This tearoom is probably my favorite of all I have visited so far. The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent. And it's a fun place at the same time with all the different hats you can try on. I have revisited a number of times and would highly recommend this tearoom to anyone, especially a first timer. It will make you become an avid tearoom visitor.

      Beautiful decor and very friendly hosts. However, you have a set menu including one or two types of tea. The food was quite scrumptious, nonetheless. If you're looking for selection, don't look here. But for a beautiful spot to try, this will do.
