      I hosted a Bridesmaid's lucheon here for my daughter's best friend. As I am from out of town and had only been there once, I didn't know how it would go. No worries! Virginia & her daughter made sure everything was just perfect! Very special memories, plus great food at a reasonable price.

      WE WERE THERE ON A DREARY RAINEY DAY. THE ATMOSPHERE CHANGED TO CHERRY AND LIGHT ONCE INSIDE THE TEA ROOM. VERY FEMINE AND FUN. GREAT PLACE TO INTRODUCE TO YOUNG LADIES.

      I always enjoy a visit to the Strawberry Tea Room and Virginia does not disappoint! This week, I took my niece and grandniece visiting from Ohio and they loved it! Of course, we have the full afternoon tea and all the trimmings. Always be sure to make reservations as they tend to fill up and everything is homemade! If you don't make a reservation you set yourself up for maybe not getting a table or not getting the homemade goodies you'd like best! By all means, make reservations and go and enjoy this treat.

      I truly enjoyed the food and tea but most of all the southern atmosphere and the owner just another part of the family....just another place to visit when you want somewhere special to go.... Lady Proverb (cousin from New Jersey)

      I wish I could comment on the food or tea - we arrived on a Saturday at 2:00. The sign outside says it is open until 3:30 mon-sat. However, the door was locked with a sign in the window saying 'closed.' While sitting outside picking a new plan the owner (who it appears lives there) drove up and looked at us waiting for us to explain why we were there. I asked if they were open today and she looked at me oddly and curtly said 'no mam' and walked inside without an explaination. Very frustrating when I had just driven an hour to meet my boyfriend halfway from where he lives in hopes of a nice afternoon....

      My husband took me for lunch on a Saturday afternoon, and everything was divine. He had the chicken salad croissant sandwich, and I ordered the full afternoon tea that came with a big piece of warm ham & cheese quiche. We shared the 3-tiered tray filled with mini sandwiches, scrumptious desserts, and fresh-baked scones with cream. The pot of tea hit the spot. The Strawberry Tea Room is 40 minutes away from our house but well worth the drive. We will definitely be back.

      I go to the Strawberry Tearoom about every other month with my family. It's 45 minutes away from my town, but well worth the trip. Virginia and her staff are wonderful, and she takes the time to get to know regular customers. The atmosphere is all frilly Southern charm, and very relaxing. The food is incredible, and the scones are the best I've ever had. I buy bags of loose tea there as well to take home. The Strawberry Tearoom is my favorite restaurant in Florida!

      My visit to the Strawberry Tea Room was my first tea room experience ever. I went with my mother-in-law, who is a tea connoisseur. I don't actually like tea, but I was into trying the experience. The atmosphere is very girly - old hats, furs, lace curtains - but there were several men eating there too. It is a calm atmosphere, but you didn't feel like if you laughed too loud you'd get dirty looks. It was nice. The food was excellent. I had the Chicken Puff-Pastry and my MIL had a Tuna Salad sandwich. They were both delicious. We also each had the strawberry scones with clotted cream and jam, and they were very good. My MIL had darjeeling loose leaf tea, which she said was excellent, especially with the different foods. She was glad that the leaves had been taken out of the pot before being served. She said they had a good selection. The highlight of the whole experience to me was that we got to sit and talk with Virginia, the owner, for a while. She is a wonderful woman with a big heart and a real desire to serve others and God with her tea room. I was enthralled with the stories of how God has used tea and the tea room in her life, and about little things in the tea room, such as the bench my husband and I were sitting on. (It used to be in an old railway station, and then in her father's Baptist church. She said people used to sit on it to wait for a train, and then people used to wait on God. Beautiful to think of who else may have sat there before us.) I cannot recommend this tea house enough, especially if you get the extra blessing of meeting Virginia. Support this small business - you won't regret it!

      I recently visited the Garden Gate Tearoom for my birthday. My mom had called ahead to mention that she (along with my dad and myself) would be in the tearoom celebrating a birthday. Upon arrival, the owners of the tearoom had prepared a table ahead and it was covered in rose petals. I was so amazed!! The food was superb (the salmon souffle) and they sang happy birthday while presenting a white rose to me. I felt the presence of God there and was moved beyond words. Thank you Garden Gate tearoom for making my day such a special one. My parents will not forget it either. God bless always, Angela.

      This is a great Tea house. The atmosphere is great, decor charming, and best of all the Tea choices and food are fabulous. The service was wonderful and the owner Virginia came out personally and spoke with us for awhile. We drove 90 min to get there from dixie county and it was well worth it. I would not hesitate to make the trip again.

      This is a lovely tea room. Good variety of whole leaf teas. Darjeeling was wonderful and Lady Londonbury fantastic. The scones were divine served warm with plenty of devonshire cream and lemon curd. Virginia was charming & welcoming. Can't wait to go back! Be sure to make reservations.

      Several of us girls went to celebrate an 18th birthday for my freinds daughter.It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in a long time. The atmosphere was charming as well as Virgina was quite entertaining. The food was plentiful and the taste, what can I say, wonderful!!! There is such a variety, you are sure to find a tea that you will love.

      This is our favorite tea room in Florida! My best friend & I meet here about 4 times a year & we each drive about an hour one way to get there. Virginia personally engages everyone in conversation & is always helpful with any questions. We can never finish all the food we get there is such an abundance! The menu changes often, so you get to experience her culinary skills every time. FABULOUS!

      I attended a baby shower for a girlfriend about to have a baby girl! What a wonderful idea to have it here. It just added to the wonder of having a girl. The tea and the food was delicious! I now lok forward to going back there again (and again) with my little girl, my mother and my sisters!

      The Strawberry Tea Room is adorable, very nicely decorated and has WONDERFUL food. The staff are very wonderful as well. The owner of the Tea Room came around, introduced herself and asked us how everything was. I will definitely be going back LOTS as the Tea Room is 2 minutes from my job.The gift shop is very nice as well and has lots of 'girlie things' to choose from' A Truly Great Experience!!!!
