      My friend and I had an awesome experience at this tea room! The architecture of the building is fantastic as we love victorian era homes. The decor was kept in victorian fashion. The food was out of this world....and the desserts are some of the best we have ever had!! The staff answered all of our questions and were willing to share their experiences with us. The gift shop offered some unique items I have never seen before so had a pleasant experience shopping. We are looking forward to going back for a repeat experience....cannot say enough wonderful things about this tea room. Would be wonderful if they would add some Enlish scones with clotted cream to their dessert menu. I would choose to eat the scone at lunch and take a piece of pie home!!

      LaTeaDa is a real gem in our area. The Cherub Chicken Salad is wonderful and the BLT pasta salad are among my favorites! Very filling portions are served by friendly staff. A wonderful old home atmosphere. Not too stuffy! My husband can enjoy tea at LaTeaDa too. A lovely gift shop rounds out a fun-filled day!

      I love this tearoom! I have been going here for years and never ever disappointed. I see young and old enjoying the food and atmosphere. Great food and La Tea Da tea is the BEST. Questions are always answered with a personal touch:) I have gone to other tea rooms in the area and La Tea Da is first class!

      WOW!!! Just went to LaTeaDa for the first time today. It was AMAZING! A...M..A...Z...I..N..G!!! Loved their chicken salad croissant. Had the famous BLT pasta salad. My friend got a fudge cheesecake pie and I tried a pumpkin pie cake that was TO DIE FOR!!!!! Cannot believe it took us so long to get to this place. will definitely be going back soon! Seriously, we pigged out on their desserts! SO stuffed but we couldn't help ourselves! Better make reservations, the place was packed. Our server was great and we did not wait long at all to get our food. would HIGHLY recommend this place to everyone.

      A group of 6 of us spent last Saturday, March 15, at La-Tea-Da for another to-notch afternoon!! We love going there--EVERYTHING about the tea room is #1 in our book! The peach tea, La-Tea-Da sampler, the 6 desserts we shared, the staff, the gift shop, the beauty of the Victorian house...not one complaint!

      I've been going to LaTeaDa for several years with friends and family. I've attended some of their 'special' teas. The tea, the food, the friendliness and the professionalism are all excellent. The gift shop always has very unusual and unique items to offer at very reasonable prices. If you're looking for some fun, please try a lunch/afternoon at LaTeaDa. You won't be sorry!

      I am absolutely in LOVE with LaTeaDa!! It is so nice to have such a fun place to meet my friends be so close to home! I'm a huge fan of their Cherub's Chicken salad croissant, cucumber pasta salad, LaTeaDa Tea, and I think every dessert I have ever had there!! I live a half hour away, but try to make it there monthly for my tea fix! AND i love the gift shop. Most of my jewelry comes from there (I have a problem:), and I bought some sandals there last summer that I wear practically every nice day. If you have not been yet, LaTeaDa is a marvelous place to go for lunch! Decor is fancy and victorian, but this is NOT a stuffy ol' granny kinda place. I see all ages there. My 20 something friends love it.

      I went to LaTeaDa yesterday with a group of Co-workers. WHOA, was I impressed!!!! They were having a holiday event, and had a special menu. I chose a candied Christmas Salad, that had praline pecans, bacon, mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, and had their house dressing, it was out of this world!!!! For dessert we had a little plate with 3 different desserts. one was a lemon cupcake, one was a chocolate raspberry bar and the other was an oatmeal cake. I cannot stand 'oatmeal', but this cake was delicious! It had coconut and pecans glazed on the top of it. My friend has their cookbook and said she thought it was in there, yeah! I ended up finding gifts for my mom and sister upstairs in their giftshop. How did I not know this place was here???? I will be doing more shopping before Christmas, I'm sure! I bought myself a new scarf too. Thanks for such a great day LaTeaDa. I will be back!

      I am not a big fan of hot tea, but they also have amazing iced tea. I can't say enough about their food. The Chicken Salad is addictive and the soup and pasta salad is just as good. They have a really nice gift shop and they are located in a very charming old victorian house.

      LOVE this place! Such a nice relaxing environment. great food great service. I like that they have a ramp for my grandma to be able to join us, and a nice paved parking lot, no street parking to deal with. Gets really crowded sometimes. We have learned our lesson and always make reservations now. Have been going for at least 5 or 6 years and look forward to going again in February with family from out of town. A nice lunch spot if you are wanting to impress guests.

      Went to LaTeaDa at the BEST time of the year....CHRISTMAS!!! They always have the house decorated so neat; very elegant downstairs and full of fun stuff upstairs. We were there, as always, for the Jinglebell Tea. 'Mrs Claus' reads a story, and the food is fabulous. We have made it a yearly tradition and the staff never disappoints. this is definitely the best tea room I have ever been to. Not stuffy and snooty but always impressive. Thank you so much for such a great day ladies!

      Went to LaTeada for the first time a few weeks ago. What a great place! I was really impressed with the variety in their menu and how they change up their desserts everyday. We had bread pudding and a dark chocolate mint cake, which were both delicious! The house is very cool, still has original woodwork, victorian type wallpaper and stained glass windows. We found some nice jewelry up in the gift shop too. My friend got their cookbook and made their pecan pie cake for a party we went to last week, YUM!! Can't wait to have a day off to go back.

      I am so thrilled to have a place like LaTeaDa Tea Room to go to with my friends. They definitely have the BEST food in Clinton! I have visited other tearooms but none compare to LaTeaDa. It is really hard for me to try new things when they change their menus because I am always craving their chicken salad croissant!!! I have tried their grilled cheese & bacon sandwich and their chicken salad melt though, which are both amazing. My favorite dessert is this candy bar cake they make and I love it when they have their italian spaghetti pasta salad. I even drag my boyfriend and he thinks it is a pretty cool place, even if it is mostly women. We had a shower for a friend of mine there last year too. They did an AMAZING dessert buffet for us! Great place!!!

      My favorite place ever!!!! Great food, nice food variety, friendly service and a huge variety of teas. Cinnamon orange spice tea is my favorite! Wish I lived closer so I could go every week, but I make the one hour drive at least once a month. Love the gift shop too. I buy all of my jewelry there now! Unique shopping that is very reasonable. Got all my work friends bracelets for Christmas and they loved them. If you have not been to LaTeaDa it is a must do!

      Discovering LaTeaDa was one of the best things about moving to Clinton a few years ago. They have delicious food and tea and pair it with a great friendly atmosphere. The tea room itself is a beautifully decorated Victorian mansion. After you're nice and full of yummy foods, be sure to check out the lovely gift shop upstairs. I highly recommend buying the cookbook, if you like to cook, because a lot of the recipes they serve at the tea room are in it.

      I went to LaTeaDa on a tour bus with a large group last week. What a wonderful place! They are closed to the public on Mondays so we had the whole place to ourselves. They brought us all out a lunch with half a sandwich, soup and a delicious spaghetti pasta salad, then we all got a dessert plate with 3 different mini desserts. What a great variety of food. My friend and I decided we will HAVE to go back on our own to see what is on their regular menu. After lunch we watched a program by the Tea Ladies about aprons. Very entertaining and fun. All of the ladies that were involved were wonderful. I had to buy a cookbook so I could make the lemon cake they served us that day. I would recommend this tea room to everyone. I want to bring my daughter there this summer when she comes to visit...so I can show off my new favorite place. They said they have been open for 7 years, how have I missed it all this time. I only live an hour away, and it is well worth the drive! I will be back! Thank you ladies, you made a nice daytrip even better!

      Visiting our 38th tearoom,my mom and I had the princess tea. The sandwiches(chicken salad/turkey) broccoli soup,pasta and desserts were incredible!! We loved the iced tea(La Tea Da) and the numerous hot tea selections. Everyone was so nice that it is one of our favorite tearoom experiences!We wish that we lived closer and could visit more frequently!

      This place is the best kept secret in Illinois!!! A friend took me and now I can not wait to go back! I have been to the Pickwick Society Tearoom, and it was ok, but the LaTea Da Tea Room is superior! The day we went they had Tomato Florentine soup that was fabulous, and I tried their chicken salad croissant that my friend had suggested and it was the best I have ever eaten! For dessert my friend had chocolate fudge pie and I had Lemon torte cake-both were delicious. I am so glad my friend introduced me to this tea room. I can't wait to take my mom when she visits from Wisconsin.

      By far my favorite tea room!! It has that fancy Victorian feel without feeling stuffy, and the staff makes you feel right at home. The hot tea selection is wonderful, although I usually end up ordering the famous iced 'lateada tea'. I love their chicken salad croissant and sometimes they have a cucumber pasta salad that is out of this world!!! I normally do not have room for dessert, but have tried their bread pudding and coconut cream pie and loved them both. My aunt took me to a Chocolate Tea they had last year and they made funnel cake french fries with a chocolate dipping sauce (YUM!) The best part is the gift shop. Last summer I bought a great pair of sandals and have many jewelry items from there also. There is no place like LaTeaDa!

      LaTeaDa has become my FAVORITE place to go with my girlfriends!!! I am a teacher and we try to go whenever we have days off of school. We went last week and I picked up some great Christmas gifts for my sister-in-laws in the upstairs gift shop. I don't know where they find all of their neat merchandise but they really have some unique items that you won't find other places.The staff is so nice and the food is always superb. My only problem (and I have learned my lesson)has been not calling to make a reservation. The last time I went on a whim with a friend and we had to go upstairs and shop for quite a while (darn!) before a table was open. Guess the secret's out! I LOVE the Christmas Spice hot tea and the LaTeaDa iced tea. Last week I had a grilled turkey sandwich on cinnamon bread with bacon, cheddar cheese and a sweet apple spread, YUM. I don't know how they come up with their menu items, but everytime they change their menu I find another favorite. If you have not been to LaTeaDa yet, you should definitely make the trip. We used to frequent several tea rooms in Ill, but now we always end up in Clinton at LaTeaDa. (Plus there are some other nice shops in town). Kudos to those ladies! Keep up the good work!

      I had the oppertunity to eat at La Tea Da on Saturday. I had such a wonderful time! My food was excellent and I had a hard time deciding on my favorite, Cherubs Chicken Salad, or the new grilled turkey. I choose the turkey and it was wonderful! Can't wait to attend the Jingle Bell Tea! I also had a wonderful time exploring the gift shop! The ladies told me that there were over 20 trees adorned with a variety of ornaments and awaiting to be 'undecorated'! I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful trees and even took a few new ornaments home for my tree. My favorite 'ornament' is a lapel style pin that says Joy which they had tied to the tree with a pretty red bow! How clever! Can't wait to wear it and then display it on my tree!

      I visited the tearoom with my mom & sister. The Victorian home with stained glass windows and original woodwork offers an enjoyable and unique atmosphere. I tried the Very Berry iced tea, mildly sweet and good flavor; my sister had the La Tea Da iced tea, a citrus flavor; my mom had the regular iced tea, freshly brewed. For lunch I had the La Tea Da sampler which included the Cherub's chicken salad, corn chowder soup, pasta salad, fruit; my mom had the Lunch Box sampler which included the chicken salad along with a muffin, coleslaw, broccoli salad, macaroni salad; my sister had the Chicken Salad Melt Sandwich on cinnamon swirl bread...all very good with generous portions. For dessert, we shared a piece of Luscious Lemon Cake...nice lemon flavor without being overpowering. We we not disappointed...an enjoyable afternoon.

      Wish to share with you... Out of the La Tea Da Cookbook(sold in the gift store) is one of the most amazing receipe. White Almond Cake. This is to die for! They serve it at the Tea Room but to make it is so easy and a very elegant for a Victorian Style Tea.

      I have been to LaTeaDa MANY times....and I can't stop wondering WHY this Tea Room is not rated #1 in Illinois???; because it should be!! The house is wonderful, very charming and elegant. The little touches they have added are what make it such a neat experience. Music plays in the background, If you have made a reservation they put your name on a pretty plate at your table, they have pretty gold charger plates & teapot napkin rings at your seat, it is just a wonderful first impression. Their chicken salad sandwich is the best I have ever had, but don't tell my mother!!! I always force myself to have dessert, even though I am already stuffed from my lunch plate, which is usually bread pudding, but I love their coconut cream pie & Mississippi Mud cake too. Besides the wonderful tearoom, I love to shop in their giftshop. The jewelry is so unique and I have bought several purses from there too. For CHristmas last year I bought all of my nieces teapot ornaments and my sisters teapot nightlights. This year I will be bringing all of them to LateaDa for a 'girls day' so they can see how beautiful the house is at Christmas time. I am SO GLAD my friend took me to LaTeaDa a couple years ago, it is now my favorite place to go!! These ladies do a great job.

      We LOVE going to the LaTeaDa Tea Room, whether it's for a regular lunch or a special event, the food is always great (especially the Cherub's Chicken Salad)! The atmosphere is warm and cozy, and the staff is always friendly and efficient. We always top of the day with a visit to the gift shop where they have many unique items not usually found in this area. If you're in the central Illinois area the LaTeaDa Tea Room is a must -- you'll love everything about it!

If I have to get a gift for something this is the place I always go to...and I at least get a glass of LaTeaDa tea to go if I don't have time to say for lunch! This is a great place for a day out with the girls...and my husband (he LOVES the food and the Blackberry tea)!!!

      I have been a frequent patron of La Tea Da since it first opened. I attend many tearooms throughout Central Illinois and feel we are very fortunate to have a tearoom of this quality in our little community. The food is always tasty, is presented beautifully, the service is good and it is fun to have a gift shop to visit following your lunch.

      I'm not a big fan of hot tea, preferring plain iced tea, but I always look forward to a visit to La Tea Da! Their special events are fun and varied, the food is always good and plentiful, and I rarely leave without something from the gift shop. Maybe they'll even make a hot tea drinker out of me yet!

      A friend took me to LaTeaDa a couple months ago and I have been hooked ever since! I was so amazed by the beautiful setting; then absolutely blown away by my meal. I had been told about their chicken salad so that is what i tried, along with their baked potato soup. Both were fabulous. Since then I have tried their turkey sandwich, a sampler plate, and a grilled chicken salad.(yes, I have been back that many times!) The bread pudding is to die for!!! I have also had a creamy pumpkin pie that the ladies even gave me the recipe for! I was so shocked when I joked to the server about getting the recipe and the owner actually came out from the kitchen and gave it to me!! I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at LaTeaDa and will return many times. I actually did all of my 'girlfriends' christmas shopping in their gift shop too. The jewelry is so unique and I loved taking home some of their Christmas Spice tea. I recommend this tea room to anyone traveling in central Illinois.

The food is fabulous, the desserts are sinfully delicious, the décor is delightful, the gift shop unique, and the service is the very best around! I’ve been there for lunch many times and have also gone to the annual Chocolate Tea (a must for a true chocoholic) as well as several other special events. I can’t get enough of the citrus inspired LaTeaDa tea and the chicken salad croissant with BLT pasta salad is fantastic. Of course I have to pick just one dessert from the selection of the day. (I wish they’d have a sampler of desserts so I could have more than one.) If you want a relaxing, unhurried place to meet friends and enjoy time together you couldn’t pick any better place. Be sure to make a reservation as they are often completely booked.

      I went to LaTeaDa's Mothers day tea last weekend. I have been there for lunch many times but never for a tea event. I could not believe how wonderful it was. Started off with a salad with a delicious strawberry dressing. Then they brought out tiers that had sandwiches, broccoli salad, & warm vegetable cheese rolls. The desserts were a lemon cake, a mint chocolate cookie, chocolate covered strawberry and a TO DIE FOR pecan bar. The best part was that they made up little recipe books for each guest with all the recipes from the tea. I made the pecan bars that night for my husband and he's already asking for them again. I will definitely be going to some of the other teas they have planned this year. My table was in awe over our day spent at Lateada. What a great way to celebrate! Would highly recommend to everyone.

      I have been to LaTeaDa many times and it is still my favorite place ever! I go once a month with a few friends, and sneak in other visits as often as I can. I love the cherub's chicken salad!!!! I am so addicted to their LaTeaDa tea too. The first time I went there I couldn't believe how beautiful the house was, I was so impressed. The staff is so friendly and we always have great service. I am a HUGE chocolate cake fan, and one day we were there they made this chocolate Snickers cake.....I thought I was in heaven. So rich, but the waitresses joked that they had baked all of the calories out of it! I would hate to guess how many times I have bought items from their gift shop. I love their jewelry and purses, and last year I got a pair of sandals and all of my friends went crazy for them. I bought my mom some loose leaf tea and a really nice tea book for Christmas, and I got my grandma a book called 'Grandmas gone wild', she loved it! She lives out of state and next time she visits she wants me to take her to LaTeaDa. I would HIGHLY recommend this tea room to anyone who loves good food and loves to shop. I will be going back next week!

      What a wonderful time. My Mother and Father were in town and I did not know where else to take them for lunch. My mother loved the tea, shopping and surroundings. My father did not stop talking about the wonderful food and service. He says he will be stopping back by whether he is with Mom and I or by himself. Way to go! He never goes out to eat. The quality of your food and tea is outstanding. Thank you for an Incredible experience.

      I was taken to LaTeaDa for the first time last week by a friend. She took me to their 'Ladies Night', which was a nighttime dinner instead of lunch. WHAT A HOOT! We had such a good time and the food was absolutely fabulous. They kept us entertained with funny games, and my friend won a door prize. I had heard of LaTeaDa but never dreamed they did events like this. I am anxious to get back there for their lunch sometime. Their milk chocolate pie was yum, yum, yum!

      I have been a repeat customer to the LaTeaDa Tea Room since their opening. The atmosphere provides a calming effect and the delicious chicken salad is to die for! Service is supreme. I love the gift shop. There are 5 rooms of every type gift you can imagine and the decor of each room is tastefully done! Overall, a day at LaTeaDa is one worth experiencing.

      I can't say enough about how enjoyable a time you will have by making the trip to LaTeaDa. From my first visit I knew I would be a repeat customer! When I think of somewhere special to take a friend or family member this is the place I call. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly, and the shopping is unique and fun all year round. If you haven't tried LaTea Da you should make a reservation soon!

      This nostalgic and eligant Tea Room was the delightful gathering place for a class reunion. The food was faboulous and the service was outstanding!! What a welcome change from fast food. It was my first tea room experience outside of England and Scotland. I intend to return upon special occasions and when ever I can!

      Thank you LaTeaDa! I had such a wonderful time dining at your tea room. My chicken salad sandwich was to die for, and the dark chocolate bundt cake was SSSOOOOO good. I bought your cookbook, (and several other things) up in your gift shop. It is nice to be able to do my two favorite things in one place, eat and shop. I can't wait to visit when the weather is nicer so I can see how pretty your garden areas are outside. I would recommend your tea room to everyone.

      THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE THAT HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO A FANTASTIC TEA ROOM. MAKE SURE YOU VISIT IN NOV ^ DEC FOR THEIR XMAS DECORATIONS. THAT WAY NOT ONLY WILL YOU EXPERIENCE A DELISCIOUS MEAL WITH PHENOMENAL DESSERTS, BUT YOU WILL BE SURROUNDED BY CHRISTMAS. MAKE SURE YOU SEE THE GIFT SHOP UPSTAIRS. I ALWAYS FIND MANY THINGS I JUST MUST HAVE.

      I'm not sure where 'Unsatisfied' was, but I find it hard to believe it was at LaTeaDa. I have been there a couple times and I think it is the best Tea Room I've been to. I have gone with a big group and also with just a few of us. I love their changing lunch menu, the bread pudding is to die for, just like the chicken salad and I've always had great service. The have a terrific gift shop too. I would suggest this tea room to anyone that appreciates great atmosphere and terrific food. They also have their own special iced tea that is super sweet and delicious. I just wish I could go there more often. I guess you can't make all of the people happy all of the time....but they definitely have me hooked. I'll be back many times!

      The seasonal menus are excellent allowing for choice in what you want. The food is excellent and the deserts are out of this world. I have had tea in several states and experience both high tea and a tea room menu - this menu is one of the best for variety and flavor. I would definitely recommend it for atmosphere, darling decor and wonderful gift shop. (My daughter loves the tea set she got there for a gift!)

      Beautiful house and nicely decorated, however, very disappointed in the fact that they don't serve High Tea. I've been to many tea rooms in AZ and throughout the US; and this doesn't even compare. We ordered off a lunch menu. The waitress gave us only 3 choices of tea. Mine came iced. I assumed it would be hot. Food was fair...lacked creativity in presentation, small portions. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this restaurant to people who are looking for a real tea experience.
