      My sister took me to The Red Brick Bakery and Tea Room for my birthday in March and since then it's become a favorite! Walking through the brick archway and into the bakery reminds me of the little cafes you see in Europe. It's such a charming little place. They have a huge variety of teas to choose from so I can try something new every time I visit. Last time, I got an iced mint tea which was the perfect refreshment for a warm summer day! I was really impressed with their food as well. So far I've had their shrimp quiche, black forest croissant and tried a few scone flavors -- everything was delicious! Red Brick Bakery is such a gem and I'm so glad to have it here in Red Lion!

      Going for TEA became a family tradition in 2005, when my sisters-in-law and nieces helped me purchase a wig following a series of chemo treatments weeks before. We have been meeting for TEA periodically since. Today, 05/28/2016 was lovely. Chef Dani provided good food and good atmosphere for our casual, lively event. We had 16 attending, and the servers were prepared and courteous. I wish Dani had introduced herself to both tables, so all knew who prepared for us. Tea selection was fine and enjoyable (we are all not necessarily connoiseurs of tea). salad, delicious. scones and other baked items tasty. enjoyed the Apple/Onion Melt......mmmmm!. All were savory!! Our group went from excitement, to raucous, to memory lane, to celebrating the life of our recently deceased 103 year old Aunt Mary. We ended on a happy, joyous Afternoon Teatime!! Thanks Danielle and staff!

      My Tea and Read group visited a week ago on a Saturday for the first time. We were very happy with everything from the food, to friendleness of staff and all the teas we were offered. Chief Dani was lovely and very friendly. We will be back.

      This was my second visit. I was so happy to see the tea room was expanded. The decor is beautiful. I fell in love with two matching lamps, which feature tea cups. The scones are delicious. The variety of tea is awesome. I did not have any sandwiches or other food, but my family, who I was with, did and they raved about everything. Great tea room!

      I visited Red Brick for the first time last week with my grandparents, mother, and sister. We had such a great time enjoying the beautiful atmosphere and decor. And of course the great food and tea! The service was wonderful. We had a super friendly and knowledgeable server. The melted italian was excellent as well as the scones and (my favorite) the white chocolate raspberry tea! We have already made plans to go back next week for the dessert tea. Definitely a great go to spot!

      Having visited Brick Bakery 5 or 6 times I must say each visit has been wonderful! I can't say enough about their pastries...my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Even if I am too full for dessert I can't resist taking one of Dani' s delicious streusels, my favorite is the apricot! I have also enjoyed the quiche a few times. Portions are plentiful and service has been very good. I highly recommend the Honey nut bush tea !!!!! Definitely a must try !

      I can't say enough good things about the Red Brick Bakery and its chef, Dani! I have been there for high tea on numerous occasions and have held several showers there as well and they never disappoint. The tea house itself is quaint and cozy and the food is amazing. Seriously amazing. It's a gem hidden in the heart of Red Lion!

      Have been to this small quaint tea room for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. They have an extensive tea list and the food is excellent, I made my afternoon tea reservation on-line and received a prompt reply from Chef Dani. The atmosphere is calming. There is no pressure to review or extraneous chattiness. Obviously I like it as I keep going back.

      We made a special point to visit this tearoom and travelled some distance to do so. Unfortunately, we arrived to find the tearoom closed during their posted hours for the public due to the use of the tearoom for a private party. We were very disappointed and are unlikely to make another trip.

      We enjoyed an Afternoon Tea here during the month of March. The tea list was extensive, the food prepared was tasty, varied and presented well. The minestrone was delicious and the assortment of tea sandwiches was fun. It was an enjoyable Sunday afternoon for our family.

      Everytime I have come to the Red Brick Bakery and tea room, the experience has been wonderful. I have enjoyed walk in service, high teas, and special Saturday dinners. Each and every time has been wonderful and the tea is fantastic. Will always come back and recommend.

      I am trying to be optomistic because it was the weekend of the street fair. I took my daughter to try the tea room that is closest to our home. We have been to other tea rooms so we had something to compare to. Sadly this did not measure up. We had a 12:30 reservation. We were greeted promptly and that is about where it went south. We received our tea by 12:45 and finally our first course one scone came at 1:05. No description just a plate drop. Our next course was a very small salad again no communication to what was being served. 2:00 came and we received our sandwiches. I asked the girl what was on the plate she had no clue and had to get someone else to explain. 2:25 We got our dessert plate with a description this time. I really cant complain about the food it was very good and the tea it self was great. I just felt the time between plates was too long and the salad was way too small. It was only a 4 course serving and I think 2 hours was a bit to long. I would definately stop by to pick up scones to go. Another tea service I think not.

      Tearoom response:

      Jody - Thank you for your review. We strive to provide exemplary customer service and am very sorry to hear that your experience at the Red Brick were less than perfect. We try to respond to customer feedback very seriously. The weekend that you came for afternoon tea was a very busy weekend with the Street Fair outside and we also had new staff we were training that day. We feel that we do provide a better afternoon tea service than you experienced. We hope you will give us a second chance to impress you and stop back for tea and scones again! <BR> Cordially, Chef Dani

      I have taken my mother and sister for Tea at Red Brick several times now, and am soon taking a friend. I am always delighted with the selections for high tea. It is very reasonable for the variety and amount of food that you get. They also have a great lunch and bakery menu, so check it out! I have not been disappointed yet!

      This is one of my favorite places to go for special occasions. Having high tea here is a wonderful experience. Danni has such a wide variety of whole leaf tea flavors, you'll want to come back again and again just to try them all. The food is always delicious. As for her baked goods...All I can say is 'Oh my!' My mother surprised me with a birthday cake from there. It was absolutely wonderful and the cake was beautiful. Danni is the best. I promise you, you will never be disappointed.

      I visited the Red Brick for High Tea in the fall. The food and tea were excellent. The staff was the most accomodating (one person in our party requested coffee) of our needs. I think they would do well to create a seperate space for the bakery counter, it was a touch distracting. The tea room itself could also be a bit cozier, however, I would also not feel nervous to take a young child there.

      I have been to Red Brick Bakery for both lunch and High Tea and must say I enjoyed both. So much so we are going back for Mother's Day weekend. The opportunity to try different teas and the freshly prepared foods make for a yummy experience in a nice casual setting.

      Had a relaxing and tastey tea party here two weeks ago. Best scones ever. All items made from scratch on site! First pot of tea came to the table lukewarm, cheerfully corrected. Great tea selection and patrons are encouraged to try a couple during the course of the service.

      We enjoyed afternoon tea last weekend at the Red Brick Bakery & Tea Room. The tea selection was very impressive. Chef Dani made us feel very welcomed upon our arrival. The setting was relaxing and our time was not rushed. The menu was carefully selected for a chilly autumn day. I would definitely return at a later date for another wonderful experience.

      Our tea club had tea here. The food is wonderful - prepared by chef Dani. Nice use of seasonal foods. Excellent teas with a wide choice offered. We had a delightful and relaxing time. I would recommend everyone giving it a try. Look carefully, it is almost hidden on main street! But worth the effort to find.

      I have been to this tea room several times, and also have visited the bakery. The scones are amazing! I have to say that the portions are the biggest that I have ever had at a tea room, which is great, you really know that you are getting what you paid for. The menu was a great variety and the staff is so pleasant. I also loved how they were able to accomodate my friends special diet needs. Thumbs up without a doubt. I will definitely be back again and again.
