      One of my very most favorite tea houses in the city!

      This was an interesting little stop. It has a bit more of a café feel than a traditional tea house. I got the high tea served on a tiered tray which was nice. You come in look at a menu and order from a counter window. They give you a number, you pick out a tea cup and find a seat. The food came quickly and the tea was very good, loose and served in a small cast iron pot. (Which was gone a bit too quickly) With the high tea for two you got three tea sandwiches for each, a strawberry for both, four petit fours, and a big scone to slip. When you were done you left your food there, a waiter never came to see if we were okay, but again it’s more of a dinner feel. Overall it was okay for a tea house, nice for a lunch place.

      Late dinner, wanted something light for my picky senior mother & myself. On the menu was 1/2 sandwich with soup or salad, I got 'egg salad sanwich' on pumpernickle rye(?) with salad which had baby spinich & a great red wine dressing with cold tea. Mother, being the picky eater nowadays, said to some assisted living resident friends that the meal came out & looked so small on the tray & the dark brown bread she thought was going to be dreadful, but much to her surprise, she loved the whole meal. I thought the service was great. Although we were there later than normal for dinner, there were maybe 5 tables of peope - a family, an organization/committee, a couple or two - not too loud, not too quiet. They had a great selection of both cold & hot teas, plus other usual restaurant/cafe drink selections. OH!!!! while ordering at the main counter, to my great surprise in the 'sweets/desert' case I notice a slice of 'buttermilk pie'. This was my dad's vice when he & mom use to visit their getaway in West Texas. So, that brought back memories for me - after we finished our dinner, I asked mom if she wanted desert, 'no', so I went to the counter & ordered the 1 slice that was still there, he told me he could make it 'a la mode' if I wanted - I wanted!!! When he brought it to the table he had sliced the thing in 2 (as I requested) & placed 1 in front of Mom & 1 in front of me. Mmmmm!!!! I LOVED THIS PLACE, FOOD, SERVICE, ATMOSPHERE. You should try it at least once.

      You place your order at the counter, and you get your own drink at the drink station. Very laid back atmosphere. Most people in jeans and t-shirts. Old looking sandwhich shop. It says beer and wine availabe on outside awning

      This is not a traditional teahouse but more of a cafe. No frills or hand and foot service for sure but the quality of the food and the tea as well as the beautiful surrounding neighborhood are wonderful. Will visit again when in S.A., Tx.

      Delicious food and teas. You can't beat the fun Madhatters Theme; this is the place to go for lunch in downtown San Antonio. Go early; it gets busy.

      What a great place for lunch or dinner. Their vinaigrette was made with blackberry sage tea and there chicken breasts for sandwiches were smoked in Lapsang Souchong. What a nice place to relax and to sip into something comfortable

      I second the coffee shop comment. The atmosphere is straight coffee house with a Mad Hatter theme. The teas are quite fresh, which is a nice change from par. The service is coffee house, though - students with love lives, etc. This is not the place for a fru-fru pampering event, but it's a good place to have a pot with a book.

      It’s more of a funky coffee shop than a teashop but they do have a nice variety of tea and a large menu. The finger sandwiches are out of this world, you won’t be able to stop at just one plate.

      I visited here while at a conference. The Jasmine jazz was so fragrant and wonderful. I even bought some blackberry sage tea to bring home. And if you are interested in more than just tea they also have tasty breakfasts.

      This place actually got me drinking tea! Their Moroccon Mint is amazing--even compared to teas I've had since then. Their food is also eclectic and yummy. I recently attended a brial shower there, and their high tea was wonderful as well.

      Wow what a nice surprise. I found the blackberry sage tea vinaigrette on my salad was wonderful. This is a place for all to enjoy, young or old, hip or not.
