At lunch we offer a choice of soups & sandwiches made with Bread Alone’s Organic award winning bread & fresh seasonal ingredients. Our a la carte dinner menu showcases seasonal local produce in a variety of delicious homey, but sophisticated comfort foods. Light Fare & Tapas is available throughout the evening. This land marked, historic building’s three dining rooms and two outdoor spaces offer romantic nooks as well as family friendly spaces. The banquette nook and children's seating with a chalkboard wall and toys leads to a private patio, fenced and gated where tall old maples offer shade and seating for twenty.

      My daughter and I had tea here in May. The building is situated in amongst local shops. The prices were average for an afternoon tea. We had a nice experience except I was somewhat disappointed with the food. The food seemed very dry and we didn't finish our food because it was so dry. This is a nice location to sit and relax over a cup of tea and the tea selections were good although I was surprised they didn't refresh our tea when we emptied our pots. They only added water to the existing leaves, so after a while there wasn't much flavor to the tea.

      I threw my best friend's bridal shower here, and it was amazing! Their selection of teas is vast and varied. They also have a sandwich with goat cheese that I travel 40 minutes to eat! At the shower they gave us towers of sandwiches, scones, and cookies. The cake they made for dessert was both beautiful and tasty. They worked very hard to make the event perfect for us, and everything from the way it was displayed to the quality of the food was more than I could have hoped for. Downstairs they also sell some wonderful foods and drinks. I would recommend this tea room to anyone, it is unsurpassed in aesthetics, food taste and tea quality.

      the afternoon tea is firstly a lot of food! beautiful finger sandwiches, fresh organic bread, apricot almond oatmeal scone was buttery and crumbly and dekicious, real clotted cream, good raspberry jam, house baked variety of cookies 9especially loved the marshmallow) and a nicely edited selection of estate and organic teas. we were very happy! The organic earl grey is an extremely refined version

      The afternoon tea is a lovely mix of savory, scones, and pastry. Definetely too much for one. They also offer a 'Ploughman' tea of lamb pie with scones and cookies which I hope to try soon. The tea selection is excellent with dozens of choices in black, green, white, herbal, and roobios.

      More than a tearoom, its a fantastic bake shop and a full restaurant. The Afternoon Tea is a lovely affair with a particularly delicious cilantro almond chicken salad. Scones were perfect, served with real devon clotted cream & raspberry jam. Also enjoyed the maple leaf shaped ginger snap. It works well with their chai tea. Nice selection of tea, served piping hot in those paper t-sacs in a pretty green pot.A converted old tailor shop, the restaurant is a series of intimate rooms, with old beams,and warm colors. Interesting mix of clientele in this hippe college town. Family room seems to attract a lot of young families. Planning a shower for my sister there soon.

      This charming spot is located in the middle of the village of New Paltz, but feels secluded and private. The water is filtered, the pots are scalded, the tea is piping hot and served with a timer and a doodad to put the tea sack in when your tea is brewed. They use those paper t-sacs which are fabulous.Afternoon tea sandwiches where of the highest quality. No curling edges of dried up bread here. I've had afternoon tea at numerous places in manhattan and this place puts tem to shame. Local and organic ingredients, superior baked goods and a super friendly staff. It's more than just a tearoom- also serves breakfast lunch and dinner - very much in the spirit of the british gastro-pub idea - elevated domestic seasonal cooking.

      This is a comfortable place, with an inviting deck. The food is good and the pastries are wonderful. The service is excellent. A great place to sit and have a cozy talk with friends or take your paper and read.
