      I love spending an afternoon at Belladonna Tea Room! Whether it's browsing the beautiful gift shop for new teacups and teapots or for enjoying tea, scone and tea sandwiches in the tea room, my experiences have ALWAYS been amazing! There is so much attention to detail in the food presentation, the selection of tea offered is so hard to choose from and the peaceful setting make for a wonderful way to relax and enjoy tea service. I highly recommend a visit! I've had only the best experiences at this tea room as well as some of the best scones and conversations with the proprietor.

      Well, where do I start? We first heard about Belladonna years ago on Teamap. Was surprised to see that a tea place in the Mojave Desert could be ranked # 1 among the California tea rooms. We have been to various tea places and some were pretty good. A few months ago we got to stop by Belladonna just to take a look inside. We did not eat then but really loved the gorgeous interior and the graciousness of the owner. We told her we would be back for my wife's birthday to give it a try. We finally went yesterday and had a totally amazing experience. When we first walked in, there were 5 ladies who had just finished their tea time and were purchasing tea from the gift shop before leaving. As we were seated, there were three others at another table (mom, grandma and little girl) enjoying their time together. I noticed the owner went over to them and apologized that the scones were still baking and brought them another treat to enjoy while they were waiting ... now that is how you run a business!

      Came to Tea with my friends but didn't really want to come. I don't like Tea! Well I do now! Their loose leaf teas make a huge difference and their flavor choices are amazing! I had Raspberry Mango and it was so great! The foods today were very delicious also! Our celebration here was fantastic and we'll all be back.

      This my favorite tea room of all time. My first visit was in 2000 and my last was just a few months ago. Every time I've been, I have been delighted. The store has precious finds you won't see anywhere else. The tea selection is so big that sometimes I have a hard time deciding - there is definitely something for everyone. The food is scrumptious and has never disappointed. The last time I was there, I told Donna my boyfriend was missing out because h loves tea, but the experience is definitely feminine in nature. She invited me to bring him and promised to treat him extra special so that he wouldn't leave hungry. She's so accommodating. Now, years later, I have a two-year-old daughter. I cannot WAIT for her and I to share mother/daughter tea dates here.

      Today my husband and I finally were able to visit this quaint little boutique (after trying for a few years). We do not live in the Lancaster area, but my husband's job requires him to go to the area from time to time. As fate would have it every time we were in the area the shop was closed. Well that ended today! We were blessed to meet and talk with Donna, just a delightful woman of God. My husband and I were able to find a nice gift for a co-worker, enjoy the hospitality of the proprietress, pick out a future purchase .-> and have a word of prayer with a wonderful sister! Nice to finally meet you Donna! p.s. In reading your book I see that your daughters name is Chelsie Leeann :-) my brand new granddaughter's name is Chelsea Lynn. Prayers for your Chelsie and mine :-)

      My tea was fabulous, Pumpkin Cream Pie! Who would have ever guessed that tea could taste so great? And the scone was not and crunchy right out of the oven and the Devonshire cream was delicious. There were 5/6 sandwiches and 5/6 desserts and every bit was better than the last. I loved the cucumber and pesto cream cheese on small toastette and the baked gorgonzola cheese with raspberry preserves. My favorite dessert was their lemon pound cake with lemon curd, fabulous! I can't wait to return with more of my family and friends.

      I've been driving by this place now for over ten years and never stopped in ! ! What ever was I thinking? ? The boutique is amazing with many one of a kind creations. The tea selection has so many choices it was hard to make up my mind. I eventually chose the black Dream Angel and it was very delicious ! ! The sandwich flavors were very uncommon and so full of flavor each bite was an adventure. I can't believe I've wasted so many years not coming in to this charming place but am certainly going to make up for it from here on out !

      My dear friend and I enjoy trying out different tea houses all over Southern California. My favorite tea house used to be in Chatsworth but they closed during the recession. I also enjoy the Vintage Tea Leaf in Long Beach which also closed! So we gave this tea house a try as it is so highly rated. The food was delicious and the owner attentive. I would gladly return. As to the poster that mentioned prayer in her review. As an atheist, I knew this tea owner was Christian and I don't mind that at all. In fact what better way to join forces than a Christian woman serving Atheists? Awesome. I would return to this tea house.

      Wonderful surprise to walk into this place. The boutique is amazing and so many unique gifts that I had to buy several for Christmas already. I have my eye on a Tea Set for myself also. The food was delicious and the dessert tray was overwhelming with so much to try. Their loose leaf tea selection has so many choices we all chose a different flavor and sampled each others. Can't wait to bring my daughter and granddaughter in for Tea.

      This warm quaint Tea Room is a touch of home. Reminds me of the teas I enjoyed with my Mum when I was little. Cozy, friendly and charming. Their food is excellent and their scones are the best, Sorry Mum ! I'll bring my sister and family back very soon. Their tea selection was way too much for my simple tastes of traditional English Breakfast I'm used to. Although my friend was ecstatic with so many choices !

      Came up to Los Angeles to check out the top 3 Tea Houses. This one was nice but not the best. Seems like they cater to all the locals and their church friends. Didn't appreciate the owners praying right next to us as we had our Tea, seems to me this should be left out of business especially when your are paying for both the food, service and ambiance.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Cheryl, We have served thousands of ladies (individuals and groups) from all over Southern California from Santa Barbara, Simi Valley and even San Diego. We've been in business for 16 years this November and enjoy serving Tea to all our guests as much as we did the first day we opened. Cheryl, ladies share their stories and situations with us all the time and if they ask us to pray for them we most certainly will.....with no apology ! Praying for and sympathizing with our guests in their time of need or loss is absolutely supposed to be part of the Tea Experience ! Giving Hope to the hopeless and encouragement to the heartbroken ! I'm saddened that you don't understand the intimacy and friendships that occur over a Cup of Tea ! May God Bless you richly, Donna

      Just celebrated a birthday here (not for the first time) and absolutely loved it. There are so many lovely selections of loose leaf tea, while a pot for each person means that you can share and try several flavors. I always order the Creme Brulee tea, which is exquisite. The food is delicious as well and I am always amazed at how well she is able to accommodate gluten-free diets. The atmosphere is the best of any tea room I have been to: very cute and cozy, in a lovely old home. The service is excellent, very attentive and personal. As an added bonus, she has many cute hats of varying colors and styles available to wear during tea. I can't wait for the next birthday party!

      BellaDonna is my most favorite place to go for Birthdays, Happy Times and Sad Times. Donna is a super hostess and owner. I go to the Teahouse about 6 times a year. My favorite tea is DIVINE INTERVENTION. I always get the a bag of the tea leaves. My friends and I usually have the Chelesa Princess meal which is tea sandwiches, scone and a pot of tea. We are treated as a family would be which we love. You can feel God's hand and love for your there. Thanks Donna for being very compassionate and such a great person.

Donna's kindness with the children is above and beyond. She teaches the children etiquette as she serves, makes each Princess feel special and my daughter was on cloud nine! She hasn't stopped talking about the Tea Lady and how much she loves her. We can't recommend this Tea Room enough for Children's Tea Parties ! You will not be disappointed with the food, kindness and service!

      My best friend took me to Belladonna's for my birthday and I had a wonderful time. I loved the beautiful hats that are available to wear while at tea. The hats make the experience very special, like going back in time and having a tea party as a child, but even more fun. That was just the beginning of a delightful experience filled with delicious teas, tasty pumpkin bacon soup, fresh little tea sandwiches and scrumptious desserts. My favorite was the fresh, fluffy scone with Devonshire cream.

      I might be dating myself but some of my most cherished times as child were spent at tea with my mom. Wearing hat's,gloves and a pair of my mom's high heels.thanks to Belladonna I was able to not only have that feeling again but I was also able to share it with my two younger sister.the atmosphere is magical ,your spirit is at home and your able to put everything going on outside the tea room's door away and enjoy the luxury of tea time.there was a large selection of teas to choose from.the homemade foods were fresh and deserving nod of their own,especially the pumpkin and bacon soup.The hostess is such breath of anointed fresh air.the subtle use of scriptures throughout the tea room is inspired.We loved every minute of the time we spent at belladoona

      A GEM in Lancaster ! Who knew!? I took my four year old daughter , it was amazing. She was so excited she even dressed like Snow White! Every detail was thought out from the moment we entered the door! Amazing greeting, food, tea, ambiance, service ! Donna was so sweet to my daughter! My daughter was amazed by it all , from the powder room - to the hats and the sweet gift they gave my daughter. The detail in all tr food and presentation. All I can say is WOW! It's hard to find a place these days who really has a vision and puts the customer experience first. We will be back very soon and frequently!

      Amazing experience at Belladonna. I've tried quite a few tea rooms in Southern California and this is by far the best one above and beyond. The service is warm and inviting, the food is fresh and delicious, clearly made with thought and care in each serving. And the tea selection is vast and delicious. I came here with my mom and we had such a delightful time and were made to feel very welcome, like we were family. I look forward to my mom coming back to town so we can go again and share the experience with my new baby girl. This will easily become our new grandma/mother/daughter tradition.

      Going to Belladonna is always a wonderful experience. Donna is such a gracious welcoming hostess and so are her helpers. It is a magical, welcoming atmosphere-- a whimsical Victorian style. They use tea leaves--never bags! And what a great tea selection! The scones are so delicious all freshly made! Everything on the menu is prepared with much love and everything has that special 'Donna' touch. The desserts are so scrumptuous and each one beautifully decorated. The little sandwiches are delicious. It is a wonderful experience. I have been there many, mnay times. All of my guests have loved going there. I took my granddaughter there who lives out of town. Now, she wants to go every time she comes to Palmdale! She loved being treated like a princess; she had the Princess Camryn Tiara Tea. Donna, thank you for all you do to make our visits to BellaDonna so magical and special, especially your loving and welcoming spirit. Lisi 7/4/14

      My dear friend, Bonnie treated me to a delightful lunch at Belladonna's. The tearoom is decorated in a whimsical style with many things to catch your attention. We wore hats from a large selection on display for such purpose. Then each of us chose a tea from the handmade menu. The loose tea was served in lovely teapots. We enjoyed fresh baked scones, tasty sandwiches and desserts. Donna was very attentive and we were pleased to be there and plan to visit again soon.

      As a surprise my dear friend took me to tea here in lieu of lunch at one of our regular haunts. It was a wonderful experience. From start to finish it was a delight. We began with choosing the hats we were to wear, then were seated at a charmingly cozy table presented with hand made menus where we made our choices. Our delicious food was presented so cleverly. Each of us were provided a bottomless pot of tea of our choosing and adorable hand-made tea cozies kept our pots toasty. The owner was most attentive, but not annoyingly so. The decor is very feminine, whimsical and ecletic. Afterwards we shopped in the gift area. The entire exerience was so lovely. We will be returning!

      Where to start!! I called Belladonna on Wed. wanting to come in for tea, Donna informs me that she prefers reservations in order to be prepared and provide fresh and sufficient choices from her menu. We make the reservation over the phone which was quick, easy, cheerful, and explained very well. We make it there today, Friday, and from the moment we pulled into the parking lot (plenty of it) to the minute we drove off, EVERYTHING was wonderful!! I was amazed at the fact that all her decor, which hangs off the walls and ceilings, were dust free!!! Sandwiches were divine, and the tea is lose leafs, no bags!! Desserts were just lovely and made me smile with every bite! Powder room was magical, and her gift shop was just lovely!! First time here, but surely not the last! Thanks Ms. Donna, you shared so much with us and made it very nice for my daughter and I!! God Bless!

The tea is delicious, the food is scrumptious, and the atmosphere is completely charming. My latest visit was on June 14th. I took my mom for her birthday and she had the best time. Donna made her feel so special with a candle attached to her dessert plate and she gave her a lovely magnet as a birthday gift. We enjoyed the full tea with salad, sandwiches, scones, and dessert. It was an amazing way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We cannot wait to go back!

We were greeted right away immediately taken to our prefect little table already for us. I felt like we were VIPs . My friend and I enjoyed the full tea (scones, sandwich, salad, dessert) and everything was hand made with love and a little touch of spirituality that was heart warming. I had the Parisian Nights tea. Let me tell you.. Better than any earl grey or lavender blend tea I've EVER had!

      My friend, Loretta, introduced me to this amazing tea house last weekend. It was an afternoon I will always remember. The sandwiches and scones and desert bites were delicious. The cucumber sandwich was wrapped up like a little present. We were to unwrap the gift and receive all the goodness that God brought to us that day. Donna the owner, is the most amazing woman and her story is worth reading in her book, that you can buy at the tea gift shop. It was hard to leave the magic of the tea room and go home. I can hardly wait to go back! We went for tea and were filled with His blessings through Donna, a woman we had never met before. As I left,I wrote a prayer on a golden lock and hung it on the fence outside the tea room. I will come back when God answers my prayer and unlock it. Praise the Lord!

      Drove from Orange County to Lancaster because of the reviews here on teamap.com. We were not disappointed ! Everything was magical and each course served brought 'aaahhh's' from everyone! This is absolutely worth the 2 hour drive for tea and the gift boutique is the best shopping experience we have enjoyed in a very too time also. We will be back ! !

The teas, foods and the desserts were very tasty and their love for tea is very evident in the way we were pampered. If you have a chance to visit, we drove 2 hours, it's worth the drive.

      This quaint tea room is darling. It reminds me of my English childhood where we would sit around the table and share tea with family and friends every day. What fond memories. Their scones were better than I have ever had, sorry mum. And their version of devon cream is very tasteful - where as true English devon doesn't have much taste. Their tea selection is outstanding and changed my mins about only drinking english breakfast. I enjoyed Donna's Earl Grey de la Creme very much too. Their sandwiches were delicious and the desserts were very exciting, tasteful and the presentation made us giggle ! Will be back soon and often with more of my English friends and family. Thanks so much for providing this little taste of England right here in Lancaster, CA.

      What a surprise to find this treasure right here in my own back yard almost ! I've been driving by for over 10 years and never took the time out of my busy schedule to stop and visit. My mom and sister would have loved this place also and it's too late to bring them here for a special time together. Not going to make the same mistake with my daughters and friends. Already made reservations for a mother and daughter tea and can't wait. The customers in the tea room said they've been coming for years and that the food and service are excellent and well worth the time, money and effort. Can't wait for our reservation to make memories sharing tea with my family and friends.

I bought some to enjoy at home. Can't wait to come back with my sister and spend a few special hours with her.

      This tea room is rated #1 for it's quaint English/Victorian atmosphere, their welcoming and friendly personalities, their delicious variety of tea foods, their extensive variety of tea flavors and the best shopping experience for tea lovers ! ! This tea room is where friends and family gather to make memories with the est tasting tea foods we have ever enjoyed - much better than the Empress Hotel in Canada. They are not trying to compete with hotels and/or places more formal and snooty at all. It's the complete opposite and exactly what most tea lovers are looking for - evidently - since they are rated as such on this site. If you are looking for a snooty formal atmosphere where you fit in and look down on the rest of us average ladies, Belladonna's Tea Room is certainly not the place for you.

My husband was so thrilled he wants to take me to tea again on the way back home. Their welcoming smiles, delicious selections of tea and the fabulously tasty sandwiches are well worth it all. AND their raspberry chocolate truffle parfait is so yummy I wanted to lick the delicate glass dish it is served in! We also bought some of their teas to take with us and I treated myself to a scarf and some jewelry! What an experience all in itself.

      This is such a surprise to find up here in Lancaster. We drove from Simi Valley to see why this was #1 tea room. We now understand it's because of their hearts for Jesus and their fabulous tea foods and tea selections. Yes, we have been to all the hotels and even to Queen Mary and Victoria Tea Room in Canada, but the foods at Belladonna and their scones especially were the best ever! We will certainly make this drive again with more tea lovers to enjoy this tea experience !

      We enjoyed our visit very much. Have heard about your tea room for several years and finally drove up from Orange County, a very long 2 hour drive. But it was well worth it. We go to tea a lot and most are fomal and stiff and snooty. What a delight to be treated as friends and/or family and to have so many choices to choose from. We loved the 'Belladonna House Blend' tea and your scones are the BEST we have evver enjoyed. Very good selection of sandwiches and the desserts were very yummmy. We will be back again next month with more family and freinds.

      Our drive from Ridgecrest was once again worth it all. We meet here every few months or so with a couple of friends that drive up from LA. It's about our half way point and we are never disappointed. They have the best scones of all the tea houses we have ever been to and their devon cream is so delicious I want to eat it by the spoonfuls. Their sandwiches are fantastic and I love the toasted bacon with artichoke the best or maybe the bacon wrapped date or maybe its their gargonzola and raspberry tart? Can't decide because they are all so delicious. Didn't buy anything in the boutique this time because I bought way too much last time. But we will be back again soon and I'm sure there will be more treasures to look at.

      Belladonna's has the best scones we have ever tasted, their food is very flavorful and the tea selection is outstanding. Their quaint tea room is not formal and neither is tea supposed to be so stiff that you place rigid rules upon it. This is still for now a free country and everyone has the freedom to share wonderful music that soothes the sole in their own business. This is typical of a liberal minded person that demands rights for themselves but not for someone that doesn't think like them. God bless this tea room and mulitply their business ten fold.

      Why is it that only liberals, gays and muslims have the right to express their beliefs? The below review is the only one on this entire site that said disliked everything about this little tea room? AND it was totally because they are Christians and play instrumental worship in the background ! ! We've been bringing new friends here for years and everything is wonderful, tasteful and fitting a tea room. AND I just moved here from England and it's just like my favorite tea room in my town. Their scones are served first because they came hot right out of the oven - unlike most tea rooms..... and they serve tea in courses as you are finished. ALL tea rooms serve a little differently and this was a wonderful experience for my entire family ! ! AND anonymous untruthful reviews should always be ignored !

      We were so delighted to have tea in this quaint tea room. The atmosphere is so welcoming and so friendly. We love the Godly atmosphere and if this offends you, it is not necessary to blast their establishment. The scones are delicious, there are tablecloths and lace toppers as well as memorabelia under the glass tops. So sad to see someone once again attacking a place because of ther Christian belief. We will certainly return for another visit and tell all our friends about this lovely environment!

      Came to the Los Angeles area from Northern Cal and decided to check out the top Tea Rooms, here, we were very disappointed in Belladonna, it should not be rated #1, firstly it is cramped, glass table tops, no table cloths, the scones were served 1st an absolute nono in the world of Tea and they were way too sweet and hard and the rest of the food only soso. I guess as they have a captive audience by the get the reviews but as we are both English born and bred so it is not like we don’t know. If you are expecting the best it is not here. Another thing, they have no website and you need to give a credit card when making a reservation which they told us would be charged if we didn’t show, I am under the impression one must advertise that particular regulation. Unfortunately a long drive for a huge disappointment! And, religion should be kept in the home, not in business we didn’t realize we were going to a religious place, didn’t appreciate the “worship” while we were having Tea.

      We've been to many tea rooms in our travels and were surprised to find one in the AV when moving here from New York. We didn't expect much from this little house and the quaint tea room. We were so pleasantly surprised with the tea selections, their made from scratch (most tea rooms serve ones they buy frozen) that are served hot right from their oven, their version of devonshire cream is the best we have ever had also. Their varieties of tea sandwiches were wonderful and their desserts were very delicious as well. We will absolutely be back with our family when they visit and they too will be shopping in their very fun gift shop! ! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to enjoy tea ! ! Can't wait to visit again.

      First time having tea and had no idea what to expect. It was awesome. My friend came from England and wanted to go to tea and I had seen this place for years, so we made reservations. My friend fell in love with Belladonna and wants to take it back to England - especially Chelsie and Donna. They are the perfect hostesses and do a fantastic job in everything. We didn't have time to go shopping because we sat and talked for so long but are going to come back again next week to shop.

      I LOVE Belladonna! My first visit there was in October 2012 when I brought my mom as a birthday gift. Not only was the tea, food and gift shop amazing, we were delighted with the service from Chelsea. I have been back to belladonna many times since that first visit and I don't know if I come more for the tea or for Chelsea's company :) Highly recommend this lovely spot for a special occasion or simple to come relax and unwind. They also have a fantastic selection of loose tea if you fancy yourself a frequent tea brewer at home.

      This fabulous tea house always brings the girls in our family together with much joy. The service is impeccable and very home-like. The variations in tea, pastries, and merchandise is awesome and every visit ends in happiness. This family-friendly establishment serves small portions of scones. sandwiches, and salads, but don't let the food size fool you as we leave complete and full every time and because the tea house is a God first establishment, our spirits are lifted and full upon every leave. Keep up the good work and tradition by keeping it a family establishment. We recommend with whole hearts.

      My best friend brought me and my two girls to Belladonna's for my birthday on Oct. 26, 2012. To say that Donna is remarkable is an understatement. The whole atmosphere was exactly what my soul needed that day and it has stayed with me ever since. I didn't know if my girls would be as excited as I was, but they have talked about it and have asked for us to return! Later on, Donna helped my best friend pick out my Christmas gift which was a teapot and saucer. It was Divine intervention, because the design was exactly the one that I had looked at prior and hoped to get one day. I have also read her book and have to say that this is the only tea room that I would recommend wholeheartedly!

      This has been a family favorite since 1999 when Donna first opened the doors! We have had many times of sharing, prayer and fellowship with our family members, as well as Donna.

Later, we perused the many unique gift items available throughout the boutique and tea room. A 'MUST ENJOY' for those who love an old-fashioned Victorian tea :) THANK YOU DONNA for another fabulous experience. We love you!! The family of Belle DuBose :)

      My first time there, and I already love it. The cutest place! The decor is amazing, and the gift shop has so many great gifts that I wanted to buy all of them! The food was excellent. Having lived in England the last three years, and sampled many tea rooms, this place is one of the closest to the real deal! The variety of teas was great! Even some types that you would only find in England. The cream tea included warm and delicious scones, fruit jam, and devonshire cream. The cream was not quite the 'clotted cream' that you would find in England, but it was fairly close that I was impressed. The service was friendly and enjoyable. We were offered more than enough tea, and extra cream or jam if we wanted. We arrived early not realizing that the tea room usually opens at 11am, but the staff was more than willing to go ahead and open up the tea room for us. I will definitely be visiting again, and bringing others! They even offer a 10% military discount in the tea room.

      I have been to Bella Donna's on several occasions but this past time was very special because we took my Grandmother for her 100's birthday. The service, tea and food were impeccable. Our server catered to our every need even though she had a full house. She offered many levels of tea service and since we had my niece with us she even offered a Princess tea. All 5 of us had a great time. I would recommend Bella Donna's for any occasion. We were pleasantly surprised upon leaving that my Grandmother was presented with 2 very special gifts. I can't thank the team of Bella Donna's enough for an amazing afternoon.

      Been to other tearooms BUT Belladonna's is a keeper!!! Went on Fri. for her book signing but didn't have time for tea. I did get a chance to do so with my sister earlier in the week.

Hopefully I'll be able to have time to have a cuppa this week.

Honestly, look at all the other reviews on this page and you and Sisson are the only complaints. And to continue this ongoing campaign of writing on this site over a cup os soup is very sad.

      

      I will not make a habit of writing on this site, but I wish to respond to Donna. My friend and I were disappointed, but NOT upset about the soup. What we were upset about and I am asking that as a business woman, you consider this...we made a reservation to ensure that we had the soup. It was the only reason we made a reservation. We both feel that a policy should be in place to ensure that items are held for those that make reservations and not given out to walk ins. Also, if there is a change in the menu,the server informs the guest as soon as they sit down and ensures that they are okay with the changes. When we asked about the missing soup, your daughter said she was sorry that she forgot to mention it and that she would leave you a note and that we could come back. My friend and I both thought that it was a friendly gesture to right an oversite. It was not until I called to set a new date that I was informed that the salad we ate was a substitute and that we needed to pay for the soup. Simply stated, I think that most businesses would have notified the customer of changes and of what options we had. Does that not sound reasonable? I simply informed your daughter that I was not happy with the situation and that I would prefer to discuss the issue with you. I payed good money and I have every right to say that I was not in agreement with what happened.I was not in any way mean towards your daughter. You have a responsibility to your customers. They are who make your business a success. I am horrified that my friend and I payed 56.00 to be so disrespected. As you are suggesting, we will gladly take our business elewhere.

      Tearoom response:

      My Dearest Sisson,<BR> Normally we try to make every guests visit with us as satisfactory as possible. We couldn't be ranked #1 on this site and have all 4 stars on almost every review otherwise. But, on your first phone conversation on Tuesday (regarding your visit last Wednesday) with my daughter you belittled her, ridiculed her and intimedated her so badly that she cried hysterically and I could barely recognise her voice. All this because you wanted the 'CUP OF SOUP' instead of the salad ? ? ? ? <BR> <BR> You ordered the Full Belladonna Lunch which included: Bottomless pot of gourmet teas, scone served with preserves and devonshire cream, 2 chicken cranberry sandwiches, 2 artichoke/bacon sandwiches, cucumber and pesto sandwich, gargonzola tart, plum wrapped date, and a provolone cheese crisp and our petite house salad of romain/spinach with grapevine tomotoes, cranberries, candied almonds and house raspberry vinaigrette and for dessert chocolate cake with french truffles, strawberry stuffed with strawberry cream, pumpkin bread pudding with rum sauce and an apple tart.<BR> <BR> This is what thousands of guests have been enjoying in our tea room for the past 13 years and we are truly sorry that you only came for the soup..... but we are a TEA ROOM and perhaps you should have gone to a soup house instead.<BR> <BR> Again, there was no substitution, our menue clearly states 'chef's choice of salad or soup'.<BR> <BR> This will be our last conversation with you over a 'CUP OF SOUP'.

      Drove from Ventura to go see about this tea house. What a surprise it was from the first step into the door. The gift shop is full of surprises, china, jewelry and victorian things they make - I bought several completely unique items. The service was very kind, welcoming and friendly ! ! The tea selections were amazing and the scones were totally worth the drive just by themselves. The tea sandwiches were delightfully surprising and varied - my fav was the gargonzola and sweet pepper jam fillo ! The pumpkin bacon soup was so good I almost licked the tea cup it was served in. The desserts were as great to the taste as they were to the eye ! ! We will absolutely be back and will spread the word to all our other tea friends.

We enjoyed the Full Belladonna Lunch with fabulous teas, scones, salad, tea sandwiches and desserts ! Everything was absolutely delicious ! Then we went shopping and bought way way too much but are already planning a tea party at our home ! If you haven't stopped in.... take my word for it.... you will never forget your experience in this most charming tea house we've ever seeb.

      WOW ! Never expected such an amazing tea expereince when we drove over 1 1/2 hours to get to Belladonna Tea Room. The owner and her daughter loved on us from the moment we called to say we were running a little late. 'Just drive carefully, no worries on our end' was there reply. We walked into a wonderful surprise of aromas, tastes and 'eye candy'! The shopping in the boutique is a delight around every corner! The choices of teas is thrilling! The assortment of scones, sandwiches and desserts are all an experience in themselves! Bacon wrapped dates, toasted artichoke with bacon/spinach, egg salad and chicken cranberry sandwiches. Butterscotch, cranberry or chocolate chip scones served with delicious devon cream! AND for dessert: chocolate hazelnut brownies, raspberry tarts, white chocolate bread pudding and strawberry short puffs. We can't wait to come back and bring more family and friends to enjoy this experience with us ! ! Thanks for an amazing tea time !

      I came here with my Mom, my Aunt and my boyfriend, a small family reunion. Walking into Belladonna is like stepping back in time into a life of Victorian charm and decor. It was such a lovely time. Donna is so friendly and very kind hearted. You cannot love her. The service is impeccable. Donna welcomes you into her tea room as if you are coming back home to visit one of your own family members. Every corner of the tea room is decorated and you really have to take the time to look at all the personalized touches throughout. Also, make sure you go into the bathroom and sign the guest book. It is decorated as well as the rest of the place. The tea selection is unbelievable. I've never seen so many teas offered before. Each of us had a different type of tea and took sips of everyone elses. I liked them all. I had the Strawberry Cream which went very well with all the food. We did the full tea which included bottomless tea, scones, tea sandwiches, salad and desserts. Everything tasted so delicious and fresh. I live about 4.5 hours away but I will be coming back next time I pass through, or I may even make a trip again just for Belladonna. As I mentioned, I brought my boyfriend, and he loved it just as much as all the ladies. So it's not just for women. Thank you Donna!

      This is such a special place to me. Donna is the consummate hostess. The food is delightful, along with the wide variety of teas available. My fav is Creme Brulee (yum!), and she even has a good selection of decaf teas! This place is amazing. You have to stop by and partake. Donna is a treasure to the Antelope Valley. We love her. She has given me words of wisdom that have helped in difficult personal circumstances. Don't get me started on the boutique! It's fully stocked with everything you could need for tea, plus some, including fabulous purses and other personal items. Hard to describe how great this place is. Just come and see for yourself.

      I can't believe this tea room has been here in the AV for almost 13 years and I haven't been in before. The shopping experience is amazing with all kinds of tea things I never heard of before. Donna explained it all in the most simplest ways and I now feel like I could totally make tea at home now. And the tea room aromas were tempting to resist and they happened to have a slow day so I got to sit and enjoy without a reservation. Their tea selection was a complete surprise - other tea room had only a few and they had tea bags - and I finally got help from Donna and chose their Dream Angel of boysenberry and sweet coconut. It was fabulous and their homemade scones and devon cream were to die for ! ! The sandwiches were a complete surprise also - where did she come up with these incredible combinations that I want te eat everyday ! ! The toasted sundried tomoaoe with roast beef and feta cheese was my favorite ! ! I cannot wait to bring all my family and friends to this tea house to share in this expereince with me..... But, if their schedules don't work... I'll be back by myself very very soon ! !

      I was part of the Southern California High Tea meetup group who had the great pleasure of attending Tea here a few weeks ago. My boyfriend was with us and the owner kindly took his appetite into consideration and made sure he would have enough to fill him. And it turned out we *all* did! My goodness the High Tea here is so filled with delicious sandwiches and treats you really will bring some home. The scones were incredible and we all remarked that we'd never had a Butterscotch Scone before - that is something you won't want to miss! As delicious and delightful the teas and atmosphere all, what makes this unique and endearing is that three generations of kind-hearted ladies run this establishment. You cannot buy such warm winsomeness, it is a gift they give freely welcoming you into their hearts and hearth. The shop is filled with incredible gifts at very reasonable prices. I cannot say enough about Belladonna. I drove 60 miles from greater Los Angeles and it was worth every minute of the trip! Don't miss this memorable experience.

      Tearoom response:

      Sweet Denise,<BR> Thank you for such high praise !

      Yesterday was my first experience with a tea room and I am hooked! We brought our Girl Scout troop for a tea party and Bella Donna's accomodated us very well! Donna was amazing, friendly and sweet! They had the tea for the girls already prepared and the Mint Chocolate one was by far the favorite. The adults got to pick their own tea and I was overwhelmed anyway so when I asked for a suggestion they suggested the Divine Intervention. It WAS divine! The perfect choice. It was fruity and spicy and nothing I had ever tasted before. They have formal hats if you forgot yours at home and the place is packed with all sorts of tea decor. It's a fantastic place to visit. When I heard the prices before we came I was floored but after going, it was totally worth it! When you keep in mind you are not only paying for tea but a great experience, you don't mind the price. It's perfect for a special occasion.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Megan,<BR> What a delight it was to serve your Girl Scout troup! The experience was great for us as well and we enjoyed each sweet smile from all the young girls. AND....

This was the first time to the Belladonna and our second time to a tea room, having first experience a relaxing time at another tea room during our honeymoon just over two years ago. The time at Belladonna was a very enjoyable and must say relaxing time for both me and my wife. The owner and or host Donna made our time there most enjoyable and a very pleasant experience. Enjoyed the ambiance, the menu and the chance to stroll through the little shopping after our tea was over. It is nice to experience something that takes me back to my time living in England and the chance to share a special time with my wife.

      My experience at Belladonna's was wonderful. It was a relaxing and calming outing for me. While there was a variety of tea and it was amazing, the food was just as amazing. The salad was excellent topped with a delicious vinagerette salad dressing. I was really impressed. The Tea house was beatifully and elegantly decorate. The owner was very attentive and made the expericence unforgettable with her kind words and laughter. I was really impressed..

      Belladonna's is my favorite tea room as it offers the complete experience. The decorations are whimsical with vintage hats, purses and gloves. Every time I go, I notice something I hadn't seen before. The owner, Donna, has been blessed with the gift of hospitality. No matter how busy she is, she always takes time to make each person feel as though they are guests in her place. The selection of teas is very good, and there is always a few new flavors listed on the specials board. The food is extremely tasty and is served in an attractive way. The homemade pumpkin and the sun-dried tomato with feta cheese soups (served in the colder months) are out-this-world as is the homemade raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing (salad is served during the warmer months). She also serves open-face and traditional sandwiches, which are quite delicious. I can't say that I've ever had something there that I didn't care for. In fact, I wish I could get Donna to share some of the recipes with me! After enjoying the Belladonna tea experience, I look forward to shopping in her boutique. I rarely leave without purchasing something wonderful. She sells tea, teacups, teapots, hats, fascinators, purses and jewelry. That's why I say that Belladonna is the place to go if you want the complete experience! It's like an unexpected jewel in Lancaster, CA and I highly recommend it.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Liza,<BR> Your encouragement and support is so appreciated. Thank you for bringing so many of your friends up to Lancaster and spreading the news about our little tea shop. We still love serving tea just as much as we did the day we opened 12 years ago. Hope to see you again real soon, God Bless you, Donna

      I have been to Belladonna Tea Room several times. I have purchased gifts for friends there and had afternoon tea there with my daughter. We also had a Bridal tea there for my daughter. It is an absolutely delightful place! Everything from the setting to the wonderful food and enormous selection of teas is outstanding! But two of the things that impressed us the most are the owner and her staff. They are truly delightful people, who gave us not only superior service, but also expressed interest, warmth and friendliness. I hope to return many times and absolutely recommend this tea room to everyone.

      I came here with a group of about 15-20 ladies for a bridal tea. It was an amazing experience! The 'Tea Ladies' were very helpful, sweet and cheerful. This tea room provides customers with hats to complete their tea outfit, has the cutest bathroom and offers tons of special deals on teas. Everything about this place makes me want to go back: the service, the decor, the amazing food, and the wonderful teas. Overall it was an awesome experience and I would definately recommend this place for special occasions or just a nice afternoon when you feel like escaping from real life.

      Mimi and I went to Belladonna on Tuesday December 27,2011. Most people go for just the tea we wanted a complete experience including food. We were not disappointed. Belladonna is located just minutes from the freeway in a 1954 Victorian Style home. It is only 900 sq. ft. but they get everythng in and you neveer feel squished. Belladonna even provides hats to extend your experience. The variety of teas was lenghty (20+) but they also had seasonal offerings. We had the Candy Cane tea and the White Chocolate. They were great. Our scones, petite sandwiches and savory sweets were all excellent. I almost forgot the delicious tomato basil soup. The soup was an unexpected pleasure. Donna and her daughter met all of our needs and spent time visiting with all guests. We shopped in the small but very tastefully stocked store. They sell tea supplies, as well as home decor and gift ideas. The price was fabulous for our tea experience. The prices in the store were also very reasonable. It was a pleasant surprise to find this lovely establishment in Lancaster less than an hour from home. We will be going back.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Barbara and Mimi,<BR> It was such a delight to serve you and share stories with you. We do love our job and playing in the kitchen.

      This tea room was absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere was warm, friendly, and incredibly welcoming. The decorations were whimsical and unquestionably appropriate in setting a comfortable mood. The guests truly feel like their having a wondrous tea party in a Victorian parlor. The tea menus were readily available for perusing as soon as we sat down and the hostess was very helpful in the selection of delicious teas. The food was wonderful, the portions small but unbelievably tasty and artfully arranged. The table ware was delightful in its presentation and integration of multiple patterns with one another. The option of fantastical hats being worn during the “tea party”, provided by the tea room, only added to the festivity of the day. I will most definitely be returning to this establishment and will refer it to anyone with an appreciation for the fantastic.

      I've been to this tea room twice, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I'm not a heavy tea drinker, but all the blends I've tasted here are great. I just tried their apple blossoms and it was really good. Their sandwich/salad/scone combo is pretty good. It should be enough to fill you up. I especially love their chocolate chip scone (heated). It's to die for. The tea room is really fun for a girly event, or even for a couple (although you'll probably have to really convince your manly-man to go. I !00% recommend this tea room, even if you are not all that into tea drinking.

      Belladonna is very Victorian and thoroughly enjoyable. Even my husband, who says he is 'not into teapots' or small fancy sandwiches, enjoyed both the delicious flavored teas and lucious food. A very friendly place. I wish it were not decades too late to bring my very English grandmother.

      Tearoom response:

      You'll find this a delightful place to spend some time with a friend. Their chicken salad on a bed of greens is most delicious; the scones are warm and melt in your mouth along with the Devon Cream and preserves, and so many tea choices too. And...don't forget to order some dessert. Then be sure to shop the boutique. I'm sure you'll find something for yourself or for a gift that you just can't pass up!

      I love this tea room! My 76 year old mother had NEVER been to a tea room until a year ago. She was skeptical about 'having tea', but now, when she comes to visit, she makes a special request to visit Belladonna. Its friendly, relaxing atmosphere with quaint Victorian flavor lends itself to a comfortable and fun experience for young and old. Awesome service from a wonderful 'proprietress' makes everyone feel special. I always leave with a renewed spirit. The selection of teas is amazing-something for every preference...food is so tasty...and Donna is such a blessing to her customers. Thank you and blessings to you Donna!!

As soon as you enter the shop all your troubles melt away as you smell the delicious aroma coming from the kitchen. Everyone I take there ALWAYS wants to come back. The food was amazing as usual and the tea was, once again, the best I've ever had. Thank you Donna for creating such a wonderful place for so many to enjoy. It is truly one of a kind.

      This was the first time I have ever been to Tea and what a fun experience. The owner overheard that it was a gift from my friend for my Birthday and when she brought out dessert she had a candle on the plate. What a great touch. The food was really tasty and it was a fun relaxing enjoyable time to spend with a great friend.

We have had tea many times at other tea houses and our experience here was by far the best we have ever had. We can't wait to tell our friends and bring other family members to share in this most awesome tea time. Thank you for creating a wonderful place for women to share time together. See you soon!

      This is the most enchanting tea room we have ever been to. The moment we walked into the boutique we were in the most delightful world. Jewelry, china, lamps, purses, teacups, door knobs, books, etc, etc,... We took three trips around and know we didn't see everything. We were surrounded with sparkles and 'eye candy' and everything to set up the perfect tea table. When we went into the tea room we were treated to a hidden cabinet under the stair case that was wonderfully filled with hats to wear to help set the perfect mood to enjoy our tea. The tea selection was exceptional and we were encouraged to choose different flavors of bottomless tea to share around the table. The scones were absolutely astounding and the most delicious we had ever had along with their version of devon cream. Their raspberry dressing needs to be bottled for sale and the sandwiches were so exceptional that we were sure we couldn't eat another bite. That was until we saw our dessert plates of bread pudding with rum sauce, tripple chocolate fudge brownies and peach tarts, etc, etc,... We hadn't enjoyed our times together since we were children. Our time at Belladonna's will be one of our most treasured memories. Thank you Donna for your ministry and heart for Jesus and serving tea.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Kindi,<BR> Thank you for such an awesome review. We do enjoy sharing our tea room and boutique with our guests as much today as when we opened almost 12 years ago.

      I visited Belladonna for a 'full tea' last weekend with a dear friend from high school. It was my very first time ever going to a tea room, and it didn't disappoint! The house is adorable and cozy, and Donna herself is such a warm and friendly Christian lady. The tea was brewed to perfection, the food was delicious (and filling!), the music was just right...it all made for a very fun and memorable afternoon.

      Tearoom response:

      We have visited many tea rooms over the years and our 2 hour drive to have tea at Belladonna's was well worth the trip. Donna is such a delight with her kind smile and gentle spirit. The stories she shares about her experiences, of giving her testimony, of sharing God's love and hope, and about her beautiful daughter and granddaughter are so captivating that we wanted to hear more and more. The teas were amazing, the scones are the best we have ever tasted and the presentation of the 'sweet Texas corn chowder with bacon soup' in a tea cup was a surprise. The desserts were scumptous but Donna's cinnamon raisin bread pudding with rum sauce was incredible. We made many memories while wearing the hats and taking pictures to capture our special time together. We will absolutely make this drive again to visit Belladonna's and enjoy another family celebration.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Collette,<BR> It was my pleasure to meet you and your family today. Thank you for your wonderful words of praise. I love serving tea today just as much as when we opened 11 years ago. I do hope you make the drive again real soon. God Bless you, Donna

      I have been to quite a few tea houses and my experience at the Belladonna was most delightful. The service was exceptional. Donna and Chelsea make you feel so comfortable and welcome. The atmosphere and decore truly hold a special touch. You can sense the love and warmth the moment you walk into the boutique. It has many special items to choose from and has a delightful smell and is definitely one of a kind. And the tea! Oh my goodness the tea!!! There was sooo many to choose from that I could not decide; so Chelsea recommended that I try the Belladonna blend, which turned out to be an excellent choice, as it was the best tea I have EVER tasted; and I have tried a lot of tea in my day. I drink it regularly. The food was amazing as well. My favorite was the scones; also the best I've ever tasted and they come in the most adorable shapes. I ordered the white chocolate apricot and it was phenominal! As was the tomatoe feta cheese soup. And the way she presents everything is so special, dainty and cute. I most definitely will be going back and will be telling all my friends about it!!!The absolute perfect place for an afternoon with the girls and great for the little ladies as well. If you have not been, it is a must do. Go and experience a little touch of Heaven right here in Lancaster.

      Dearest Torie,<BR> Oh, My.... What can I say... Thank you for such high praise.

I have driven by Belladonna's Tea house many times over the last six years, and yearned to stop, but wanted to take someone special in my life with me for my first visit. I couldn't have been more delighted with our experience! The Tea was wonderful (Their house blend is superb) as were the flavors of the salad and finger sandwiches, and their presentation was Beautiful. Best tea room experiance I've had, including The Emperess Hotel in Victoria, Canada. Strolling through the Boutique after lunch was magical!!! I can't wait to take my 93 yr. old Mother-in law! This is the perfect place to show her how special she is.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Jessica,<BR> Are you sure you came into Belladonna's Tea Room? Everything about owning our little tea shop is because of the God I love and serve, who is very Jewish, and He only blesses those who love His chosen people. I know without a doubt that we would not be celebrating 11 years of business on November 7th, if God were not the one blessing us and keeping us open. <BR> <BR> We are saddened that not one of our varied tea menu selections were to your liking, but as we are asked for our recipes on almost a daily basis, we know we can't always please everyone. Maybe if you care to give us another try, next months selections might meet with your individual taste preferences. <BR> <BR> And as a side note, I haven't been into the shop for at least 6 weeks because my daughter, Chelsie, has had 3 major surgeries and a pulmonary embolism and has been hospitalized during that time. God has done many miracles to keep her alive and she is now on the long journey to rehabilitation. We would certainly appreciate your prayers.<BR> <BR> May the God of Abraham, Issaac and Jacob bless you and keep you, Donna<BR> <BR>

      I have been to other tea houses, this one takes the cake. Belladonna has a tea for everyone. The owner takes her tea house to the next level. If you don't care for your flavor choice, you can choose another flavor at no additional charge. The food is just as good as any five star restuarant, right down to the dessert. The food is presented like a gift at Christmas that is wrapped so beautiful it's hard to open (or should I say eat). The atmosphere is very warm right down to the staff. From the moment I walked through the door I felt the warmth of a family owned business. Belladonna has a wide variety of unique items in the gift shop. Belladonna is a tranquil experience. A definite A+++.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Happy Customer,<BR> WOW,,,, Thank you so much for your praise. We do love serving tea and 'playing' in the kitchen making up new recipes.

      I first visited this delightful tea room in 2000 when my coworkers brought me here for a mini wedding shower. I have been back several times! It was a wonderful Mother's Day out for my best friend and her mom and recently for a friend who was in desperate need for a girls' day out. I rave about the chicken salad to my friends all the time. There is not a single thing on the menu that I haven't absolutely fell in love with. Donna is a WONDERFUL hostess. This will always be my favorite 'treat.'

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Tracy,<BR> When we opened almost 11 years ago, I didn't realize that our little tea shop would be part of so many memories. It is a great joy to have shared your special times with family and friends. It truly helps us to keep on going and be excited about what we are doing. Thanks again for reminding me, Donna

      My neighbor Debbie, her 4 year old granddaughter Melyssa and I had a Princess tea with you in June. It was a wonderful experience for a little girl (and the adults too). Your shop is wonderful and you have the most contagious enthusiasm and spirit (and food and teas, too). Melyssa wants to take her Mom to tea soon!

      How do you describe a place that takes you back to the time you were a little girl “having tea” with your best friends, enjoying each other’s company? Joyful, peaceful, entertaining, fun and one-on-one with all the trimmings!! Kind of an escape from the “real world” I would say. The décor was fanciful and colorful with just the right kind of music in the background to make you feel relaxed and at peace. The hard part is picking which tea you want (85 choices)!!! The Peach Brandy was fantastic, the scones delicious, and the tea sandwiches were so delicate and tasteful. A great experience. I highly recommend it.

      What a cute place and the service and friendliness of the owner was exceptional. We really enjoyed ourselves for the mother's day special. The creme brulee tea was our favorite. Cute gifts in the boutique, it was fun to browse and purchase a few trinkets. Would have liked another scone, the food was very minimal but tasty.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Linda,<BR> <BR> We're so glad you came in with your relative who ordered the 'Mother's Day Special' we are running during the week days of May. This special is only a taste of what we offer - at a very reduced rate. It included mini scone, a taste of sandwiches and sharing of a pot of tea. We offered this special to help meet tighter budgets due to the economic climate.<BR> <BR> Normally the scones are 3 times as big, there are twice as many sandwiches and everyone enjoys their own bottomless pot of tea. <BR> <BR> We hope you will return and be able to enjoy our normal fare.

      It was an ok experience. I have been going to tea rooms since I was a little girl and I can definitely say that I have had better. But it seems to me from the responses you have given other people that have given you just an 'ok', is that you can't take criticism. Not everyone has to like you, you know. And you don't always have to answer every review you don't like defensively. Different strokes for different folks. No one else on this website does that...food for thought!

      How many times have I passed Belladonna's Tea Room and thought 'I'll have to go there one of these days'? Today I finally went in, with friends, for a birthday celebration. What a treat! The atmosphere was charming, the gift shop overflowing with Victorian treasures (even better than I had expected), and the people (Donna and her friend) were warm, friendly, and patient. The selection of teas was amazing! It was fun for my friends and I to have a whole pot each and to try each others' selections. I've never enjoyed tea like that before! I don't usually take milk or sugar, but the creme brulee was perfect with both. I want to go back often to try more varieties, but on the other hand I might just have to get the creme brulee again. The food was delicious, and even when I had neglected to ask for vegetarian in advance they graciously went back to make me a new plate of tea sandwiches. Oh, and the hats were a lot of fun! Altogether, my friends and I had a wonderful and memorable experience. I couldn't have enjoyed my time more!

      Tearoom response:

      We have been here several times before, but this trip was just awful!!! The owner seemed upset and every time we asked her for anything I felt we were putting her out. The food was good, but we have had better here before. I am so sorry to say the service was so poor we are canceling our next trip and will look else where to do tea in the future.Such a disappointment.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Aileen,<BR> I really tried as best as possible to serve you and your friends with respect. It was very difficult when the two other reservations refused to stay due to the noise from your infants. I even introduced you to my 20 month old granddaughter to show I was not against infants and toddlers. But.... kind consideration is expected in regards to the noise level in such a small quaint tea room such as ours. I am truly sorry my service was not my best but due to the economic climate I could not afford to loose the $150.00 when the other guests couldn't put up the noise from the infants. I do hope you will come in again and we can both try to make your experience better.<BR> The menu today has been the same for the last month because everyone is raving about these new flavor combinations. Again, maybe my requesting that you take your children out of the tea room when they begin to fuss is what really caused your comments. Thank you,Donna

      My daughter and I have visited Belladonna a couple of times now, and will be back often. The decor is enchanting and cozy. The teas are wonderful. My favorite is the Lavender Fields. The food and service is wonderful, particularly the way the food is presented. One of the sandwiches on each person's plate is wrapped with a fine ribbon as a gift to the guest. What a special idea! We love it there and the staff is very gracious. We wish you many more years of success in Lancaster! God bless.

      What a wonderful 'Tea and Friendship' experience I had with my girlfriend/neighbor at Belladonna Tea House! The Victorian atmosphere is elegant & girlie feeling. We wore our own hats and knew that if we saw one in Donna's collection (the lighted display under the stairway) we could have worn a vintage hat. Most enjoyable was the agony and the ecstasy of selecting THE tea to drink from her 5 page menu! As much detail as Donna gives to the wide variety of tea selection, she also serves a delectable 'Tea Lunch' (Saturdays only lunch is served, not just the scones). The scones are freshly baked (a choice of 2-3 flavors) and served hot at the table, then the luncheon plate of salad greens with pecans & cranberries, surrounded by Tea sandwiches and a couple gourmet tasting open-faced petite sandwiches: one cool cream-cheese & cucumber, & the other a mini-toast with warm tapenade. We finished with a small plate of bites representing an international selection of sweets (like Baklava), all delectable! My friend and I heartily recommend that if you and your friends like touring all the tea houses in your geographic vicinity up to 100 miles... then THIS place is worth the trip.

      Dearest Donna, Ariana & I no longer live in Palmdale. My husband, kids and I have moved to Wisconsin and have lived here for over a year now. I regret not coming to say good-bye and have one last tea at your place. Ariana & I still recount the numerous visits to Belladonna-the wonderful food, delicious tea, cozy atmosphere and of course YOU! You made every tea time so special. We are blessed to have known you! Thanks so much for so many wonderful tea times! For those who are looking for a tea room, Belladonna is THE only place to go! Tea, food, ambiance - it's all here! Donna, we think of you often and miss you and your tea room. May you be blessed with peace, joy, love, good health and happiness! P.S> My mom often mentions how much she miss the Creme Brulee. I told her she should just order some and have it shipped to her in Oregon! All our best, Tara & Ariana Calderaro

It is my honor to be part of your memories of sharing tea with your precious daughter.

      I would recommend Belladonna to anybody- even people who think they don't like tea, because I was one of those people. Donna has to be the most patient woman in the world to convert me. The shop is adorable and the tea room is a delightful dining experience. I had never been to a tea before, didn't like most activities that women delight in, but I enjoyed every moment of my tea time at Belladonna. I am working my way through all the teas now trying to find the perfect hot tea and iced tea. So far for iced tea my favorites are Cranberry Harvest and Huckleberry Retreat. I am still experimenting with hot teas but so far I love Creme Brulee and Apple Cinnamon Crunch. Donna does little things to dress up a tea. I loved the cranberries in the salad. I never thought of putting cranberries in a salad before. Well, I could go on and on but you just have to go try it yourself. If Donna can make me into a regular customer it's just possible that you will like it, too.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Kelly,<BR> You are such a dear. We enjoy your visits, questions, enthusiasm, and discovering of everything tea. Thanks for the recipe book, I'll be trying them soon. We hope you create many tea memories with your daughter for years to come. God bless you, Donna

      Donna is a special person who puts her special touch to all her Tea 'Parties.' My little 11 year old granddaughter when asked what she would like for her birthday replied, 'Please I would love to go back to the little tea house. (last BD we took her to Belladonna.) The experience so impressed her, she wanted to go back again. Callie is a little lady of a 11 yrs. They have a nice children tea, but this year she wanted the adult tea selection. For a young girl, Callie has a sophisticated pallet for so young eand she enjoyed every thing. When you enter the doors to Belladonna, you are greeted warmly and you see the gift shop with all its goodies before being lead to a cozy tea room. You can try on hats to wear or bring your own. And do check out the lovely bathroom. We can not thank you enough Donna for again making a beautiful memory for us. See you soon. Mrs. Deborah Mashore Mrs. Shirley Lewis and Callie

I really felt that the owner and staff enjoyed sharing time with me in this charming intimate room. When you serve a variety of small items of food, each one must be perfect. They were! From the best scones I have ever eaten to the sandwich varity (the chicken salad was especially yummy) to the lovely dessert bites ( bread pudding was 'the bomb'). I will make this a place where I share special moments with special people in my life. Especially my new granddaughter - when she's old enough. (she's only 5 months old right now but grandma is thinking ahead!) Do go and enjoy!

      My mom and I had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the Belladonna Full Tea. Being 'plain' black tea ladies, we were skeptical about trying something new. Donna steered us in the right direction and we now have a whole new appreciation for tea after trying the Peach Brandy and Lavender Cream (I believe it was). In addition to the fabulous tea and the manner in which it was served (so unlike the tea bag in a mug method we are accustom to), the full tea also included scrumptious currant scones with devon cream and preserves, a lovely salad and an assortment of petite sandwiches, all made with creative ingredients, a beautiful presentation, and lots of TLC. Donna is delightful, knowledgeable about tea, and made us feel warm and welcomed. A fabulous experience all around. I highly recommend Belladonna Gift Boutique and Tea Room for first timers and seasoned tea drinkers.

I will warn all my friends, acquaintances and anybody who asks that the owner of Belladonna is a condescending, self-righteous hypocrite who thinks it's okay to yell at customers and bump their reservations for walk-ins.

      I have been going to Belladonna's since it has been open 10 years. I have never felt so at peace as I do when I go there. Donna is a gracious and loving hostess as are all of the ladies who work there. Loving the Lord is so very much apart of the atmosphere that one can never be sad or gloomy once you enter the front door of Belladonna's. A 'peace' of heaven on earth is my feelings about this wonderful tea room. I will always look forward to going there and I love the feeling of 'being a lady' while I am there. I tell everyone I can about Donna and her tea room and we celebrate many birthdays with Donna. I just can not say enough about this tea room and it's hostess. You just need to experiance it yourself. Let the Peace of God fill your hearts and enjoy your life everyday!

      Not my first time in a tearoom. The atmosphere was soft and tranquil reminiscent of Victorian elegance. The presentation of the tea service was exceptional as were the scones with the required raspberry jam and cream, potato, broccoli and cheese soup for a cold day, flavorful finger sandwiches and desserts to please a delicate palette. All of it certain to please the most fastidious of ladies. A visit to the boutique is a must as many of the items are skillfully and beautifully handcrafted by the proprietress. It is an experience that you will want to have again and again.

      I have not actually had tea at Belladonna's, but I wandered there while looking for ideas for my church's Christmas Tea. Donna was full of encouragement and great ideas, and even told me to call her if I needed further help. AND she didn't try to sell me a thing! She certainly has a vast selection of tea sets, teas and accessories that I would have loved to buy (but couldn't at the time) though! The enchanting atmosphere and Donna's cheerful demeanor and helpfulness was wonderful. I definitely do plan to take tea there soon! EDIT: I have now had tea multiple times at Belladonna Tea Room, and every time is a lovely experience! Whenever I have friends visit from out of town, I love to bring them here. It has also become a special birthday date for my daughters and me ^_^ The tea is fabulous, the food is beautiful and delicious, and Donna's unwavering warmth and service is top notch! Five stars all over again!

      I went to this tea room about a year ago. The owner was so rude and disrespectful! I would never go back! The reason why I go to afternoon tea is the experience as well as the food. If the owner is so offensive the expeience is not pleasent. If I could give a score less than poor I would!!! Don't go here if you're any other religion than Christian because Donna will talk down to you for it. I am a Christian but my friend was not. It is NOT appropriate to push your religion on someone as if they were not as good as you for being a different one. Thou shall not judge is one of the 10 commandments and Jesus was Jewish. Please think before you speak!

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Ashley, I do wish you had written your review or said something to me last year when you came in. At this late date and since I have no idea who you and your friend are, I can only ask for your forgiveness. I do love to share the miracles after miracles that Jesus performed for my business to open and how, by His grace, we have now been open for nine years. I only share my testimony when my guests ask how I got started though, and........ I will continue to do so.<BR> <BR> I do not judge anyone for where they are in their walk - I had a broken and confused journey myself before I accepted the love of Jesus that answered all my questions and healed my heartaches. You are right of course that Jesus was Jewish and we love to join in many of the Jewish traditions. But, you are a little confused about the 10 commandments and you could read about them in the book of Exodus in the old testament, if you like. <BR> And Ashley, as a Christian, you know that you are to go to fellow believers when you have a difference and speak to them personally. Maybe someday you will give me a call and we can talk, Donna <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>

      Our experience was exactly like all the other reviews on this web site. It's hard to imagine what to expect from this quaint shop in the high dessert. As we drove 2 hours from Anaheim just to see why they were rated #1. The moment we walked in the front door we caught our breath with surprise at the vintage sparkles and delights everywhere in the boutique. It is filled with everything 'tea' and more. Vintage dress forms covered in jewelry at very reasonable prices, purses, a 'Paris themed corner', embroidered hankies, books, teas, scones mixes and tea treats. We had to be reminded we could shop after our tea time, too. Our tea time was such a delightful experience. The service is exceptional and welcoming, the foods presented in such a way that we all took pictures before we ate and the flavor combinations prepared in the kitchen were surprising and fabulous. They serve tea in courses instead of on the traditional trays and it was so much more personable and charming. We can't wait to bring more of our friends, once we convince them with our photos that Belladonna's is well worth the two hour drive.

      We enjoyed our first visit so much today that we have already reserved our next tea time together. The atmosphere is charming and quaint, the service is like visiting a friend and the food is excitingly presented and absolutely delicious. The shopping experience was over the top. We know we didn't see half the items because we ran out of time. I will be buying all my girly gifts here from now on. Thank you for a wonderful mini retreat and relaxing time. See you soon.

      The most enjoyable tea time we have ever had. This is a charming quaint A-frame house that has been turned into everything feminine. A step back into time, even the powder room is a delight. The food was fabulous and the scones were to die for - and I thought my scones were good but they beat mine by miles. Their version of devonshire cream was delicious and the imported raspberry preserves were the perfect match. The sandwiches and desserts were just as fabulous and their presentation were worth us taking pictures of everything. If you have not tried this tea room yet, you must. You will be pampered and treated to a most wonderful experience.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Luanne,<BR> Thank you for your high praise. We're not always sure what we are doing. We just show up, pray, and love doing tea. God makes us look soooo good, doesn't He. We do love our job. Hope to see you soon, Donna

      Thank you Donna and Ann for a sweet memory that will last a lifetime. Although we plan to come back many many more times, this first time was so special because we had four generations having tea together for the first time. Your special words shared with us and the prayer said for my daughter was just what the Lord knew we needed. We had no idea that God had a very special plan for us at your beautiful tea room. The food was wonderful and the desserts were so good that we were moaning with each bite. Your scones were the best I have ever had and I've been baking scones for a very long time. Thank you for your devotion, ministry and heart for women. Your kindness and special touches made our visit truly a blessing.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Amelia,<BR> We are always so blessed when we get to share God's goodness with our guests. We pray that the words shared will take root and hearts will be touched. God bless all of you, Donna

      Donna, I want to thank you for the most fabulous tea time I've ever had. I was truly blessed by this experience. I felt the presence of the Lord as soon as I met you; you truly have a sweet spirit. It was truly a blessing to have met you and taken tea in your establishment. I highly recommend that if you are in California that you take the drive to visit this tea house. I live in NJ and was in Aneheim on business. I took the 2 1/2 hrs drive (with traffic) to experience the taking of tea at this establishment and I would do over and over and over again. I haven't stopped talking about my experience since I jumped in my car on my way back to my hotel. The scone was delicious, the best I'd ever had.....and I've had many. The sandwiches were delicious and I absoultely loved the salad dressing that was on the salad. The desserts, well lets just say they were so good it would make you slap somebody if they took one off your plate. If I ever travel to California again you best believe I will be sure to make my way to this tea house.

      Tearoom response:

      My Dearest Ros,<BR> It was such a blessing to meet you. We never know what God has planned for us each day, but sharing, praying and serving you tea was a highlight of my day. I pray God directs your path and pours out His abundance upon you, Donna

      This tea room is the most relaxing and welcoming place we have ever been to. It is like stepping back in time to a quieter, slower pace of life. We had the best time picking out hats to wear and the staff was so accomodating in taking pictures with all our cameras. The teas, scones, sandwiches, salad (and the yummy dressing they make) were delicious. Then the desserts came out and they were too cute to eat, but we did. We were so delightfully satisfied our husbands will have to have dinner alone tonight. The gift shop is an experience all in its own too. We spent an hour just discovering the treasures everywhere. We will certainly be back next time we need a gift. We'll be back before that anyway to bring more friends to tea. What a memory. Thank you so much.

      WHAT A SURPRISE ! FROM THE MOMENT WE WALKED IN THE DOOR OUR EYES WERE DELIGHTED WITH TREASURES TO DISCOVER. THE BOUTIQUE HAD EVERYTHING TEA RELATED THAT I NEEDED FOR THE PARTY I'M HAVING NEXT MONTH. AND DONNA HELPED US FIGURE WAYS TO KEEP ON BUDGET THAT SHE WAS EVER SO WILLING TO SHARE WITH US. THE JEWELRY, PURSE LAMPS, FRENCH MAPS & DESK ITEMS, WALL RACKS FOR TEA CUPS, CLIP ON CANDLES, ETC., ETC., ALSO WENT HOME WITH ME. I HAVE TO COME BACK FOR MORE THINGS ON MY LIST. IT WAS THE MOST FUN SHOPPING EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD IN QUITE SOME TIME. THEN WE WENT IN FOR TEA.....I WAS AT ONCE REMINDED OF MY AUNTIE'S HOUSE THAT WAS ALWAYS FILLED WITH THE MOST FUN ACCESSORIES. THE CHANDELIERS HAVE GLOVES AND HATS... WHAT AN IMAGINATION DONNA HAS. THE POWDER ROOM IS SO SWEET I WANT HER TO REMODEL MINE. WE THEN HAD TO CHOOSE OUR TEA FROM OVER 90 TEAS THAT DONNA EXPLAINS SO WELL - WE JUST WANTED TO TRY THEM ALL. WE SETTLED FOR CREME BRULEE, THE BELLADONNA BLEND (COCONUT CREAM WITH KIWI AND STRAWBERRIES) AND I CHOSE PARIS NIGHTS. WE BOUGHT SOME TO TAKE HOME WITH US TOO. DONNA MAKES THE SALAD DRESSING HERSELF - IT WAS FABULOUS. THE SCONES WERE TO DIE FOR - MY BUTTERSCOTCH WITH COCONUT WAS THE BEST - I ALSO TOOK SOME OF THOSE HOME WITH ME. THE DESSERTS WERE SO CUTE WE DIDN'T WANT TO EAT THEM, BUT THEY WERE AS GOOD AS THEY LOOKED. I ESPECIALLY LIKED THE 'SNOBBINETTE' A CHOCOLATE CUP DONNA GETS IMPORTED FROM PARIS AND THEN FILLS WITH CHOCOLATE MOUSSE AND TOFFEE BITES. WE HAVE THE MOST WONDERFUL MEMORIES AND PHOTOS OF OUR TIME TOGETHER TO SHARE FOR YEARS TO COME. WE WILL CERTAINLY BE BACK FOR MORE. THANK YOU DONNA FOR A FABULOUS STEP BACK IN TIME.

      Where do I start? My mother was the first English War-Bride to come to the states in 1948. I have 35 first cousins in England and 15 aunts/uncles scattered from London to the upper Englands steel towns. For most of my life I made my mother's 'cup o' tea' and ate my aunts scones so I think I have a pretty good idea of English culture. I visit Palmdale from Michigan and everytime I visit we come to your shop. Your teacup/plate holders hang in my kitchen, and I have many of your darling little spoons, as well as some jewelry. We will visit again tomorrow (Fri-18th), only this time we will have Tea as we are bringing my friends mother who turns 75 for a wonderful birthday treat! Thanx for your 'whimsical' quaint' touch of England! Deb Benoit

      Two friends and I had a lovely time at the Belladona. We had high expectations after reading previous reader reviews and were not disappointed. It was worth the drive from Torrance (drive time took 1 hr 40 minutes on a non-holiday weekend Saturday) and we are looking forward to visiting again. The atmosphere is a welcoming, whimsical mix of tea-related, vintage, and floral items. Loved the creative use of upside-down chairs to house the speakers. Hats of various colors and styles were available for patrons. We each found one which matched our outfits and enjoyed wearing them for our tea. There was a nice selection of loose leaf tea and tea-like drinks -- black, green, red, herbal. I was pleased to be able to try an African bush tea (red tea), which I read about in Alexander McCall Smith's Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency series. It was sweeter and milder than my favorite black teas. We each had our own tea pot with a tea cozy to keep the tea hot. We shared a ceramic strainer, small carafe of milk and bowl of sugar. The scones were moist and fluffy. Each of us had a different flavor. Each flavor was in a different shape - heart, star, angel. They arrived steaming warm and were absolutely delicious with the raspberry preserves and house-made clotted cream. We were served as much preserves and cream as we wanted. Our plate of food was tasty and artfully presented. We had a green salad, two different finger sandwiches, an open-faced sandwich, two toast quarters with pesto and ham, and a small tartlett thing for which I've forgotten the name. We finished our meal with a plate of scrumptious mini desserts -- raspberry bar, lemon tea cake with lemon curd, chocolate cup from France which has a fancy name that I can't remember, fruit tart, and blueberry muffin. The fruit on the tart was arranged to resemble a dragonfly and the top of the blueberry muffin was cut and arranged to look like a butterfly. Each course was served with a smile and explanation of the items. Service was friendly, warm, and personal. We enjoyed a relaxing time, never feeling rushed. One of the highlights for us was having a heartfelt conversation with Donna after we finished our tea and were browsing through the gift shop. She touched our souls and was an inspiration.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Lori Anne,<BR> WOW... Could I hire you as my advertising manager. Thank you so much for all your praises, but I don't know if we deserve all that.

      Dear Donna and Ann -- WOW! What a peaceful, wonderful tea experience. It was well worth a two hour drive (each way). The combination of an endless selection of tea, wonderful food with beautiful presentation and outstanding service made us feel like royalty. And, Donna, thanks for sharing about your fractured relationship with your daughter and for God's grace in giving you a glimpse of a renewed future with her and your new grandchild. Thanks also for giving us a care package for our friend who at the last minute couldn't join us due to illness. May God continue to bless you as you so freely bless all those who enter into Belladonna.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Carol,<BR> Your Red Hat Group was truly a delight to serve. Yes, God has richly blessed me with this tea shop, where I can be used to touch women's lives.... And my relationship with my precious daughter is being restored in God Speed. I got to prayfor, comfort and spend time with her for nine hours before she had a c-section. I am a Ya-Ya (grandma) to a beautiful precious princess named, Camryn Leeann Paige Agno. God is ever so faithful. Thank you for your prayers and hope to see you again soon, Donna

      I was in the area for a short time and made the trip to Belladonna's because I didn't want to miss seeing the #1 tea room. I was on a tight time frame so I was only able to have the dessert tea. What a wonderful idea - going straight to dessert! The plate of six desserts were artfully arranged and then drizzled with chocolate. Death by chocolate!! Next time I'm in the area I will be back to try the full tea.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Barb,<BR> Ladies do love their chocolate and we try to please. I believe when you came we had the strawberries stuffed with chocolate mousse and topped with toffee bites. Weren't they fabulous? We really like to play with the desserts. Please save time next time to enjoy our full lunch, Donna

Their love for this place shows in every detail of the presentations. The best part of all is you leave as their p[ersonal friends. They really took time to interact with us and make it a special occasion. We can't wait to come again. Although our drive, almost two hours, is a bit long, the memories are centainly worth it.

Not only was the food absolutely exceptional, very well presented and served with the most loving touches.... They gave each of us a red rose tied with a gold/burgandy bow and a poem - that they told us to read later with a tissue near by. Our mother was amazingly proud of us and felt so honored. She said it was the best gift we had ever given her. Thank you Belladonna for the BEST MOTHER'S DAY EVER ! ! !

      I am being a bigger person in giving you four stars, so that I don't ruin your rating, but I am absolutely appalled at the way that you treated me on the phone today. You had no intention of hearing any other voice but your own on the phone and had your mind set from the moment you called and yelled at me. The day that I was suppose to visit your tea room was a special day for me. I am a stay at home mom with three children under the age of five and NEVER get out, it was suppose to be my day. I was planning this for a very long time as one of my first ever mom's day out days, needless to say you ruined that for me. But what was worse than that was the harassment that you gave me on the phone, it was completely unprofessional, you need to remind yourself who the customer is. I am very saddened by this whole ordeal, mainly because the first time I went to your establishment I loved it, but you were a very different person back then, than the person you were on the phone. I appoligize for any wrong doing that YOU feel that I have done to you. I will be praying for you.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Lindsay,<BR> I am so very confused. I called you today to say that we WOULD NOT CHARGE YOU for your NO SHOW ON YOUR RESERVATION. And, that you would be most welcome as a walk-in, but we would not be able to make future reservations for you.<BR> You said you had been planning this outing for a very long time. We did nothing to hinder your outing. We KEPT OUR AGREEMENT WITH YOU and turned people away all week long holding your table for you. When your plans changed on Thursday and we could not meet your demands on Saturday morning - YOU STOOD US UP.<BR> Most business would have just charged the credit card you guaranteed your reservation with. Especially when you were informed at the time of the reservation that Saturdays require one week notice for changes/cancellations. <BR> We are a small tea room with only 7 tables. We lost revenue because your plans changed - WE DID NOT CHARGE YOU FOR OUR LOSS - and you are angry with us ? ? ? ? ?<BR> I hope you get a break from your challenges at home soon and you get some well deserved rest. <BR> Still very confused, Donna<BR> <BR> <BR>

      This quaint tea shop is the perfect reflection of a time gone by when people really cared for one another. The service is exceptional and genuine. They went out of their way to give us vegetarian sandwiches even tho we forgot to request it at the time of our reservation. The amazing combinations they came up with on the spur of the moment were better than most I've pre-ordered. The tea selection was so much fun and they invite you to be daring about your selection - because if we don't like it - they'll make us another pot. Where do you get that kind of service? The shop if filled with so many specially hand made items by the owner herself that you simply must take the extra time to look at everything.. everywhere. It was the most fun filled afternoon my girlfriends and I have had in a long time. We will be back soon with more friends and family.

      A group of friends and I had the esteem pleasure of visiting the Belladonna Tea Room earlier this month. The hostesses were very friendly, warm-hearted and genuinely enjoy their work. The tea selection was fantastic! One thing that set it apart from other Tea Rooms I have visited is that they took the time to walk you through things and share simple tips like no milk in green tea but works great in black tea selections. If I had never been to a Tea Room before I wouldn't have known that, but most establishments expect you to come prepared and don't offer such advice. We even took pictures donning a few of their wonderful hats! An absolute perfect way to spend an afternoon. It was such a wonderful experience that I am taking my mother-in-law (who is a Brit by the way) so that she can experience the ambiance and warmth for herself.

      Well, I can't say enough about Belladonna! My daughter, my mother and I have been going there for a number of years now and every time, it is a truly remarkable experience. First of all, the aroma and the overal atmosphere is unbelievable. It is the coziest, warmest and most relaxing place I have ever been! It is peaceful and serene! When I am there, I never want to leave. I have a hard time choosing between all the delicious tea! And the scones, tea sandwiches, salads and soups are scruptious. You can tell that Donna loves what she does! And that brings me to tell you about Doona. In my book, Donna is an amazing spirit. I have never met a woman more sweet! She is amazing. We (my mother, daughter and I)started out as patrons to her shop, but we became friends. My mother, who recently moved to Oregon, asks about Donna and the tea shop all the time. As a matter of fact, she wants me to send her some tea and scones! Belladonna's is a perfect place to enjoy absolutely wondeful food and it is a place that soothes the soul. There is something VERY special about Donna and her tea shop! Belladonna is an experience not to be missed and Donna is a beatuiful spirit that will touch you to your soul! Thank you Donna, for every delicious sip of tea and bite of food my family and I have shared at Belladonna. Thank you for all your prayers and words of inspiration. Your teashop has been the background for many special moments for us and you have been a comfort in times that I have needed it most! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! ~ Tara

      The owner is delightful, cheerful, AND VERY GRATEFUL TO GOD for her blessings. She considers this tea shop to be her blessing, and she has made it a blessing for anyone who enters, and visits. Her eye for detail shows in every aspect of the abience, (which reminded me of Alice in Wonderland), as well as the tea and food. There are hats of all types, colors and sizes which adorn the walls, chairs, even the chandelier. The raspberry chocolate tea that she poured for me from a lovely pink flowered teapot, was 100% DELICIOUS. I drank almost the entire pot and plan on having some today. Her butterscotch scone, cut in the shape of an angel, (she likes to play she told my friend and me) was hot and melt in your mouth delicous. The tea sandwiches that followed, were colorful, artfully displayed and delectible. I was too full to eat the delicious deserts that followed the sandwiches, so she boxed them up, tied them with a beautiful gold bow, and sent me home more than satisifed. Her shop carries all manner of teas and every conceivable tea realated item, that a tea lover would require. I am not mentioning everything I experienced because I would like for you to have the same surprise that I did. Yesterday was my first visit to BELLADONNA, and I will be back again soon. I had a wonderful time!

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Tracy, Thank you for sharing your experience with such raves. I do love the Lord and serving tea in this little shop He provided. I still like a little girl paying at tea myself, maybe that's why I enjoy it so much too. I look forward to your visits with more of your friends. Donna

      Eight ladies from our office visited Belladonna on 2/1. It was a wonderful experience. The gift shop was very nice (reminded me of my childhood with my great grandmother). The atmosphere, the food, the service was excellent!! We had fun with the old fashioned hats displayed everywhere.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Sharon, You girls were so much fun, we just wanted to sit and join you. We love the giggles, the sharing, the memories, and sometimes even the tears as we are able to pour tea for such lovely ladies. Please remember to slow down and enjoy each other's company every once in a while. Hope to see you soon, Donna

      I drove out from the coast to meet my daughter in love and her mother. We had a lovely time. Having recently been to 'that other' tea room, and discovering the negative reviews were too true, I was thrilled to find out that all the positive reviews for Belladonna's were equally accurate. We'll be back!

      What a delight. We drove from Granada Hills to visit this tea house because of all the reviews. They were completely true. The moment you walk into the front door you are taken back in time. The aroma of all the baking, the chandeliers with hats and gloves of gone by days and the powder room that is every women's dream. The food presentation was very creative and the flavors were amazing. The combinations of ingredients were very innovative. The scones were the best we had ever tasted - and I pride myself on my scones.... The dessert plate was so 'sweet' it brought smiles and oohs and aahs. The boutique has something for everyone. Purses, scarves, jewelry, 'princess delights for the very young', hankies, pictures, and many one of a kind designs by Donna herself. The tea sets and tea accessories abound for any tea table. All and all this was the most enchanting tea time we have ever had. We can't wait to bring our friends and family.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Elisabeth, Thank you for your kind words. We do love to play in the kitchen and come up with new ideas and I would love to come to tea and have you serve me some of your scones. Just set the date. Hope to see you soon, Donna

      Thank you Donna, for making the special occasion with my little girls, Jessica and Rebekah so memorable. It was a beautiful day that they couldn't wait to share with their father. Jess is especially excited about her beautiful new teapot! The food was excellent, the presentation magnificent, the decor inspiring, the whole experience was perfect. The girls loved the strawberry tea and the tiara shaped scones with chocolate mousse. A great place for little girls to be 'grown up' and big girls to have fun, too! I highly recommend this tea room! What nice memories! We can't wait to come back!

Your love for God blessed us even more. The boutique was even more than we could have wished for. We found everything we had been reading about to make the perfect cup of tea. Thank you for explaining it all to us and not making us feel so silly for not knowing how to make a pot of loose leaf tea. We can't wait to come back with more family and friends.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Vicky, You were amazingly funny and a joy to serve. Your enthusiasm for our little shop was encouraging and I'm sorry we had to cut back the 'Peach Brandy' tea from you. We thought you had too much to drink. (ha-ha)... Hope to see you soon, Donna

      What an memorable experience. We finally stopped to see what this place was about and were we surprised. They just happened to be slow, so we were able to sit and share tea, scones and sandwiches. The tea selection was so varied it took us quite a while to decide. The scones were so good my sister had to have two, a butterscotch with coconut and a cranberry. The sandwiches were so cute we had to take a picture before we ate them. Then we went shopping. There is so much to look at and so artfully displayed that we just went round and round. Carrying cute baskets to shop with, we filled them to the brim. We will be back anytime we need a sweet gift for someone and especially when we need a break from the worries of this world.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Bridgette,<BR> It was wonderful to meet you and your sister, especially after all this time that you have been driving right past our little place. And, we have many guests that must have another scone the first time they visit us. They are quite yummy. Please visit again soon, Donna

      I am amazed at this place. It's not that large of a building and you can't quite tell from the outside what to expect. But,... when we opened the door it was a shopper and tea enthusiasts delight. We spent so much time shopping (at the 50% off for January - because of the gift show the owner is about to attend) that we almost forgot we also had the tea room to experience next. And... what a delightfully 'girlie' pwder room... I want one just like it. The tea room was very charming and quaint, just like stepping back in time and sharing tea with my auntie. The foods and tea were fabulous and the scones were the best we have ever enjoyed - and we go to tea all the time. The experience was a memorable keepsake made even more special by the owner and tea hostess's love for God and blessing women with a touch of His amazing grace. We will talk about this day forever.

The quaint atmosphere sets you at peace right away and the attention to detail and service are sure to please. The tea selection will take you a while to ponder, I chose the pumpkin cream pie - it was very calming. The scones, sandwiches and desserts were fabulous. The owner and server made sure our teas were kept hot and full - they were so sweet and friendly we felt we were long time friends. This tea room and boutique are a must for any tea lover. We can't wait to come again with more family and friends to share in this experience. Thanks for our 'mini retreat'.

      What a treasure. We had so much fun shopping we thought that would be the high light to our visit. The tea time was the icing on the cake. There were so many teas to choose from we just couldn't believe it. The scone choices were mouth watering, the soup was fabulous and the sandwiches were fantastic. Hearts with cut outs, one tied with a ribbon and the best chicken walnut salad ever. Then came the desserts - the bread pudding was my favorite. I'm bringing my mom and sisters back here next week. This was one of the most enjoyable teas I have ever had. Thank you, Donna.

The ambience is welcoming, the food delicious, the presentation wonderful and the service is excellent! The owner is delightful to talk with and makes your visit even more special. My husband often goes to tea with me and this is the first tearoom that gives extra food to the men. My husband appreciated this especially the extra desserts! I highly recommend a visit to this tearoom.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Ellen and Husband, It was our pleasure to meet and serve the two of you. Your marriage has certainly been blessed with over thirty years together (even tho he tried to be so stern - he just couldn't hide the smile in your direction). I certainly loved our conversation about tea experiences - good and bad. They are all memories to laugh or wonder about. Look forward to your next visit. Oh, and I can't take credit for the extra food for the men - it was my husband's request when we opened our tea house. He was often still hungry after going to tea with me and would have to stop to get a hamburger. We want the husbands to be just as satisfied when they leave our little place. Look forward to seeing you again, Donna

I ESPECIALLY LOVED THE BUTTERSCOTCH WITH COCONUT - WHAT A FABULOUS COMBINATION DONNA ! ! ! THE SALAD WAS WONDERFUL AND THE SANDWICHES WERE YUMMY. THE HEART SANDWICH WITH THE STAR CUT OUT OF IT WAS SUCH A GREAT WAY TO TELL THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS. THANK YOU FOR THAT TOUCH. THEN CAME OUR INDIVIDUAL PLATES OF PETITE SWEETS.

      We saw that Belladonna was rated #1 on this site so we drove for 2 hours to visit. We were not disappointed. The walk up to the front entrance has teapots in the cement. The brick work in the yard invites you to tea, and the inscription in the cement entrance is such a surprise. AND, we haven't even entered the door yet. Once inside, the atmosphere is so enchanting that we squealed with delight. You can spend hours in this enchanting boutique discovering all kinds of treasures to purchase. Everywhere you look there are unique designs, jewelry, china, scarves, frames, purses, and everythinng I needed for my tea party. Then we entered the charming tea room. All decorated for Christmas, with instrumental music whispering the outside world away. Belladonna offers so many choices of tea it took Donna's suggestion of Creme Brulee and Peach Brandy to finally help us decide. The scones were certainly the best we have ever had, as was the corn chowder soup. Our desserts had to be wrapped to go we were so satisfied. And we mean 'wrapped', Donna even put a big bow on our box. The attention to detail in every aspect of our visit will long be remembered. Donna, thank you for the most enjoyable tea and precious memories with my mother.

Donna was a most gracious hostess and treated me as a friend, sharing her life and heart with us as she served. I can't wait to go back and wish I had taken my daughters while they still lived at home. When they're in town, I'll make it a priority to take them and our granddaughters, too!

I have enjoyed other tea rooms, namely in the Empress Hotel, Victoria, BC as well as one in Albuquerque, NM and afternoon tea at the very upscale Hanalei Hotel in Kauai, Hawaii. But none has captured the whimsical dining experience we reveled in today at Belladonna's. The choices of so many intriguing sounding teas, scones, tea sandwiches,salads, soups and desserts was daunting but when Donna served us (after having burned her hand for the first time ever while preparing the teas) we were rewarded with the yummiest array of gastronomical delights we could have ever dreamed up. Clearly, Donna was sent from Heaven itself to give us a preview of what it must be like there. Bless you, Donna, for the talents you have been given and that you share with all who pass through your enchanted portals. It leaves us with only one other choice - to return again as soon as possible.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Beverly, You are so blessed to have such a legacy of 16 grandchildren to follow in your footsteps of faithfully serving the Lord. Your princess that came with you to tea was so precious I just wanted to sit down and have tea with you. I don't believe we deserve such high praise for our little tea room but we do love pampering our guests and playing in the kitchen. I look forward to meeting more of your delightful family. God Bless You, Donna

      I just adore Belladonna! They are always welcoming, so very kind & attentive, but not annoying. The food is yummy and the teas are delicious--hard to say which is better! The whimsical atmosphere, full of enchanting detail, makes this an oasis of loveliness in a stressful world. A trip to Belladonna is like a mini-vacation. I recently took tea at the world-famous Empress Hotel in Victoria, BC and I found myself missing Belladonna! A delight!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Janet, You are such a sweet lady. I would never have guessed that you have grown children in college. Your little princess is so precious and I can't wait to meet her 'knucklehead' brother - as she called him. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your celebration. May God watch over all your children, Donna

      Wow! How do you begin to describe Belladonna's? As a previous tea room owner myself, I unequivocally call it the 'Jewel Box' of the Antelope Valley. You know you are in for a special treat the moment you park your car. The details begin in the parking lot with an old antique 'Lavender' bath tub among the flowers in the back garden. You begin to sense the presence of a warm inviting feeling all along the 'Welcome' path. Once inside, you know the food is prepared with the same attention to detail.... a DELICIOUS assortment of scones are offered in the shapes of stars, leaves, hearts or whatever else seems to fancy the owner Donna. A variety of gourmet finger sandwiches are next presented and one is specially tied with a pretty satin ribbon, like a gift to open and cherish. Your chosen loose teas are steeped fresh in individual pots for each guest and poured through china strainers in to an eclectic setting of china cups, saucers and antique silver. I had to really coax my Italian mother to come with me to enjoy a small repasts of tea and scones...she could not see the practicality of it....BUT....before we were less than half way through our little meal, she was leaning over the table and thanking me for making her come....and she wants to come back again with my sisters. Special memories are made and shared here. That's the way it is with Belladonna's...once is not enough....you know you must return! I know I will! Again, and again and again!

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Annette, I remember your mother not being too keen on coming to tea, but by the end of your time together she seemed to have truly enjoyed herself. I think it was more to do with spending time with you than anything special we do. Tea has that effect on us when we finally quiet ourselves from the hectic pace and really share some time with a loved one. I look forward to serving you again, God Bless You, Donna

      What a treat ! ! ! We go to tea houses everywhere we can and were certainly surprised to find one in Lancaster. From the moment we opened the door the aromas, music, and friendship surrounded us. The boutique is filled with so many special items that it will take you at least an hour to explore every nook and cranny. The tea room is so charming and quaint (even the powder room' is so sweet you never want to leave). The tea selection is the most I have ever seen and they have black, green, herbal, roibos and oolong. The scones were the best I have ever had - try the butterscotch with coconut if you get a chance. Their version of devon cream is very yummy also. The desserts were so sweetly served we didn't want to eat them. We will make sure to stop here everytime we are in the area. Thank you for a wonderful time.

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you Brandy, You were truly fun to watch as you explored our gift boutique. Hope all the gifts are a perfect match for your family and friends. The china pattern you chose is a favorite of mine also. Please visit us again when in the area. Donna

      We had the most delightful tlime when we stepped back in time in this charming tea house. It actually took us by surprise. The boutique has so much to ponder. Everywhere you look there is wonderful tea sets, china, jewelry, purses, rhinestone reading glasses, sparkle luggage tags, and on and on. Just whatever catches the owners fancy at the gift show. We walked around for over an hour and still did not see everything. This is the perfect place to buy a gift for that friend that has e everything. Then, the tea room. This quaint room was likfe finding a treasure in England. Hats, gloves, umbrellas, upside down chairs that hold flower arrangements. Under the glass table tops are family photos, scriptures and tea notes on delicate lace runners. Sweet inspirational music sets the mood even further. The tea selection is almost overwhelming on your first visit, but then they break it down for you and it's so simple. to understand. The scones were the best we have ever had. I had butterscotch with coconut and my friend had to have two - chocolate chip and cranberry. Even the left over scone was tied up in a sweet package with a bow. Can you imagine? Everything is thought out to such detail that it is truly a surprise - yet so simple. The sandwiches were very yummy, Donna just uses her imagination here too. She said she never even knows what she's gonna come up with next. And then there's the dessert plate. Oh My. Little chocolate cups with cherry mousse, strawberries stuffed with chocolate mousse, petite cinnamon apple pies, kiwi-blueberry tarts. Again, that's what we had today. You never know with Donna. With just our first visit this place has become our little spot to rest and get away for a mini retreat. We felt so relaxed, refreshed and able to face the outside world again. Thank you Donna for your love of tea, God and your special touch that made our day like no other.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Adrianna, Want to write my advertisements ? Wow. And we loved meeting and serving you too. We are truly blessed by our customers and they are what has made us a success for the past eight (8) years. How time flies when you are having fun... and we do have fun at out little place.

      After 7 years of hard work together, I was to drive to Lancaster to meet a good friend for lunch; she told me that she would take me to a very special place for this lunch. The Belladonna! An experience I will not forget and an atmosphere I'll continue to crave. Let's see, after touring the lovely boutique, I purchased my first Tea Pot. Then, I enjoyed delicious finger sandwiches, sconces and flavored tea; prepared with love and served with grace. I had such a good time that my friend and I have pledged a trip to the Belladonna at least once a quarter. If it were closer to my home, I'd go monthly. Until then, I continue to search for a tea room in my general area with even a portion of the selection of loose leaf tea flavors carried by Belladonna. Thank you for the introduction to fine teas, Belladonna. Cathy 09/07

      My girlfriend invited me to Belladonna, saying she always enjoys being there. I was absolutely enchanted when we walked in the door! Been to more than one English tea room, but have never seen anything quite like this place! There are only six tables, so reservations are a must. The food is excellent, and the list of teas available very impressive. Each guest is provided their own full size tea pot, which is replenished as needed. Especially loved the hats which hang from the walls and light fixtures in the tearoom and ladies room. Guests are encouraged to pick one out and wear it. We relaxed and had a wonderful time, surrounded by all things girlie!! Oh! Almost forgot to praise the lovely gift shoppe at the front of the tea room, which was crammed with lovely tea sets, cozies, jewelry, etc. Will definitely make a trip to see Donna and her tea room every time I'm in the neighborhood!

      Tearoom response:

      I have been to many formal teas in large hotels around the world and didn't know what to expect from a quaint tea room. What an experience! The room is filled with memories and touches of the past when women really did take time for each other. The tea selection was the best I have ever tasted and the scones were to die for. The presentation of each course was such a delight - we took pictures of each one. The desserts were so incredible we did not want to eat them, but of course we did - strawberries filled with chocolate mousse and topped with toffee bites ! ! ! ! ! The owner, Donna, puts her heart and soul into every inch of this facility. The boutique has so much to choose from that you just stand in one place and look for an hour. It's a shoppers paradise. We left with several bags - each purchase is gift wrapped for you in sweet little bags and ribbons/bows. Even the purchase for myself is llike a gift I get to unwrap when I get home. I can't wait to come back with more friends and family to share in this experience. It was like going to another world altogether, where life is to be enjoyed and shared.

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you Emily, I, too, love going to hotels for tea. The pomp and circumstance is so exciting. Their formal air is to make us feel so important and intimidated at the same time. I'm so glad you found my little shop to be more quaint and personal. I think of every guest as a friend stopping over for tea. I am still excited to serve each course - hoping to bless and delight you. I hope to see you soon - or maybe we could go to a hotel together and both be served. Donna

Her hospitality made us feel special, as if we were close friends. I can't wait to come again! P.S. My favorite tea was the Blueberries and Cream. I purchased some to take home with me and found that it also makes a tasty iced tea.

      My friends and I had not seen each other in over 10 years and we chose this tea room as a central location and because of the many positive reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. The room was so cozy and quaint, it felt we were back in England at some of our favorite tea houses. There are chandeliers with hats, gloves and crystals. There are photos of family and other tea guests all over the tables under the glass tops. The fireplace is glowing and the music is calming your spirit. Before you are even served, you are transported to another era where life wasn't so fast and hectic. The tea selections were incredible and delicious. The scones are to die for and their version of devon cream is fantastic - much better than mums. The tea sandwiches were so varied and unique we just couldn't eat them fast enough to see what the next one was like. Then came the desserts - strawberries stuffed with chocolate mousse and topped with toffe bites had all of us drooling. The whole experience was made even more special by the way Donna and staff make you feel so special. They treat you like you were long lost friends. Each detail of the tea experience is so special you just can't imagine how she can do it for so many years and for so many people. We were truly blessed, touched by the hand of God and relaxed that we never wanted to leave. But.... Donna invited us to do dishes, so we decided we could leave. (ha,ha). Our reunion couldn't have been any more enjoyable. We will not wait for another 10 years to return to Belladonna's.

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Margo, You and your friends were a pleasure to serve. The joy and excitement at were table were contagious. When we opened this tea room, I didn't realize how much I would enjoy being a part of the memories that would be made. I have treasures to last me a life time of laughter and sometimes tears that were shared over the pots of tea I would serve. It is always such a delight. Thank you for choosing my little tea room to share your time together. Donna

      My mother, daughter and I came to Lancaster from Alta Loma (@ 2 hr. drive) for an appointment with Mom's CPA. Mom remembered a tea room we could go to before starting home. The parking area was easy to get into and clean and roomy. We laughed at the tea pot prints in the cement because loving owls my daughter has owl trivits pressed into the 'stone' (cement) stepping stones we made for around our turtle pond. We wondered around the lovely gifts while Donna was busy with her guests. She greeted us as we had come in and let us browse. Then we asked if she had room for us. She said she would be pleased to have us and brought us right in and made us comfortable. We felt like we had been invited to be special guests of hers. We love teas, black, red, green and white, but she had at least 30 tea... (more)s I had never tasted. I had to try something new, but it was hard to decide. When the wonderful, delicious scones arrived the cream was great, but my Mother cannot have anything with seeds. She had brought lovely Duerr's Raspberry jam. We all loved it, but Donna brought Mom some thin sliced Orange Marmalade. Mother loved it. The sandwiches were different, lovely and delicious. Then the desserts came. The chocolate mousse stuffed strawberries were to 'die for'. The lemon treat was my favorite since I can't resist lemon. My mother had the tiny apple pie and loved it. The brownie deluxe was such a treat that we insisted that my daughter have it all herself. We talked and ate and thoroughtly enjoyed ourselves. Donna came by to make sure we were okay. We never felt rushed or neglected. We had several pots of tea each as we enjoyed talking, relaxing, listening to the soothing music to prepare for the long drive back home. When we were the only table left, we felt able to talk with Donna without taking up too much of her time; of which she said she hoped that she was able to make everyone comfortable in her tea room. And we agreed. You could feel the warmth and companianship between the tables of tea parties. It was the most thoroughly enjoyable several hours we have spent in months. We go to tea often and would rate this as our favorite. I wish you were closer. After tea we bought a couple of truly different little goodies we Had to Have, you know, some Lemon Curd, Raspberry Jam, one of the beautiful little sandwich lifters, a Victoria Woman magnet, etc. The sandwich tool was shaped like a leaf, and as you looked at it you could see angel faces with halos and standing angles in it where first quick glance just saw veins in the leaf. I have several lifters, but have never seen one like it. What a truly blessed woman to be able to give such joy to others. You could feel her love and joy of sharing and the spirit in the room. Also our goodies were wrapped in pretty striped bags with tissue and folded over and a lovely ribbon with wire to hold the shape was put on the top. When we got home, it felt like we were unwrapping a gift just for us. And we were. We had been given the gift of love, calm, joy and the reminder that Jesus loves us and wants us to have joy. Man is that he may have joy. Thank you for a wonderful break in the hectic times we live in. Hope to see you every time we are in our area. - Linda, Alta Loma 09/12/07

      My friend had invited me to this tea parlour during our one night stay in Palmdale. I was pleasantly surprised there was a tea room nearby. The service was attentive and cheerful but this was the highlight of this event. I was truely dissapointed with the sandwiches and felt claustrophobic in their little room in the back and couldn't wait to leave. Sorry, I'll pass on this one the next time I through the area.

      My girlfriend Mary Jo whom I have known for years decided our old 'gang' of girls from church needed to get together and share some special time together without husbands or kids woo hoo. So she chose the Belladonna tea room as Donna, the owner, is from her church. I had a wonderful time, and thoroughly enjoyed being girly with the fun choice of hats, the encouraging, and inspiring words of faith from Donna. The scones were sooo yummy, and our table definitely had more cream than the other table hee hee....I found that the tea was really yummy, and all of us chose a different flavor and shared amongst ourselves. Personally the Creme Brulee was the best out of them all... Donna's shop is cheery, has lots of really girly items that any tea lover or teapot/cup collector would love to visit. I just wanted to buy everything in her shop. I thought the smallness of her shop gave me the intimate feeling of a typical tea shop that I was looking for. Thanks for a really fun time Donna....hope you didn't find us too rowdy :-) hee hee.

      One of the most exciting aspects of our little place is to share the different types and flavors of tea. We only offer about 85 kinds and these are only the top selections from only a few tea vendors. The choices are endless and sometimes overwhelming.

The tea selection is over the top and the food was not only fabulous the presentation was exceptional. We have driven by this place so many times over the past years and never knew what it was all about. It's the perfect place to pamper yourself, family and friends. It's a step back in time with quaint victorian decor and truly heart felt service. We felt like old friends the moment we walked in the door. Can't wait to go back for more. The boutique is my all time favorite to find new and interesting gifts for all the holidays. One stop shopping for any woman and they gift wrap. How amazing is that?

      I have been going to Belladonna for over 5 years and it is the best tea room I have ever been to (exceeding the Ritz Carlton!). My mother and I love having tea at Donna's. She is such a genuinely sweet lady. Such excellent service! She really knows how to pamper at tea time. My baby shower was also here. Huge selection of wonderful teas and the cute sandwiches are so delicious. I will continue to frequent Belladonna for many years.

      Dearest Jennifer, It has been my pleasure to see you and your sweet mom each time she's visited you. I can't believe it's been three years since you had your baby shower. Next visit be sure to bring pictures of your young man. It was nice to see you again. Donna

      Belladonna's Tea Room is a place that my two daughters (ages 16 & 10) and I go to each summer. We love it so much and it is such a special treat for us. We are treated like queens/princess' by Donna, who always makes us feel special. The best part for my 10 year old is the Princess teas that Donna offers (her favorite is Cinderella Vanilla). Every part of tea is detailed. Our favorite food served is the scones, however, the sandwiches are wonderful too, and each one is wrapped with a ribbon. It is truly a whimsical and fun experience. While we are waiting for our tea, we love the little shop that is there - it is so perfectly laid out with so much to see - I could spend the whole day there. Absolutely wonderful, relaxing, fun, and just an all-around 'must' do (especially if you've never been there before). Once you are there, I guarntee you won't want to leave - it's an amazing treat.

Donna is a most gracious hostess and always has fresh tea brewing, the wonderful smell of delicious homemade scones, bread pudding & other scrumptious desserts filling the air. The salad is beautifully prepared and the tea sandwiches are absolutely mouth watering! The atmosphere is cozy, beautiful & one of Victorian elegance. The gift shop has every nook and cranny filled with extraordinary gifts. I also love the way Donna gives her personal touch to every unique gift that she wraps. For a special day to remember, I gave a very good friend of mine her baby shower in the tea room and it was an afternoon that will always be etched in our memories. Thank you, Donna, for making each and every experience at your Gift and Tea Room one that my daughter & I will always cherish. A tradition worth starting for every mother and daughter...:*)))

      We go to Belladonna's every year around Mothers day and are never disappointed. It has a small but dainty, well furnished tea room in back, with a gift shop area in the front as you enter. Quality and quantity of food and tea (for the price), along with the dining experience as a whole stand well above other tea rooms in my opinion. Several types of teas and many choices in each category, food is also served with both presentation and great taste in mind, which keeps the guest anxiously awaiting the next course. It is truly a delightful experience.

We find our experience to be relaxing, uplifting and refreshing each time, without fail. On my most recent visit, I enjoyed Raspberry Mango loose leaf tea. The chocolate chip scones with Devonshire Cream are wonderful! Over the years, I have purchased enough tea neccesities that I can have a formal tea party with seven special friends and I gave my daughter a wonderfully unique Baby Shower Tea with my special treasures. I look forward to my granddaughter joining us for tea, sitting at the table and not just in her infant seat next to us. Thank-you!

      I had been to BellaDonna for the 1st time in 11/2006. On that day I only visited the gift boutique. I got to meet Donna who is a wonderful person that is very charming and extremely personable. Due to the holidays I wasn't able to make it to a tea sitting. Yesterday, 3/1/07 I had a wonderful experience as my good friend and I made it to a tea sitting. The atmoshpere is very whimisical. You feel that you are in a differnt place and not so close to home. They carry loose tea and it taste very good. I had the creme brulee and it was delicious. We also had the full tea which included lunch. The chicken walnut is excellent. What caught by surprise was that we were given tomatoe soup with feta cheese & sun-dried tomatoes and it was absolutely divine. It was delicious. Everything was great. My friend and I both had to have our desserts boxed to take home because the portions were enough to satisfy us. Oh, but I almost forgot, I had a butterscotch/coconut scone and it was delightfully good. Lastly, the service was just as great as the first time and considering that I had personally been having a rough few weeks, going to Belladonna's really helped my spirit and made me feel much better. I would highly recommend Belladonna to anyone.

      Dearest Nancy, Our greatest pleasure in serving tea is to be used by God to touch women's lives. We are so glad we could be there to lift up your spirit. God Bless You !

      I've been to many teahouses and have to say this one really stands out. Everything was wonderful- the atmosphere, tea, food and hospitality. Donna even came over and gave us little gifts at the end of our tea, which was both lovely and unexpected. This was the perfect place to take my Mom and daughter to tea for a Christmas gift. We'll definitely be back.

      Our greatest joy is to enteract with our guests. I'm so glad they let me out of the kitchen to say hello to you !<BR>

      This tea room has been a blessing in my life for several years. I know when I arrive I'll be cheerfully greeted by Donna and welcomed into her lovely place. The food is a bountiful feast of delicious goodies. With a changing menu of of sandwiches and soups and desserts, it gives us the opportunity to try new flavors each time we arrive. A large variety of teas is available to choose from, to drink and also available for purchase. I've brought friends to the tearoom and they've happily remarked at the high quality food, service and overall atmosphere. I have found elegant and beautiful gifts for my family and friends from her shop also. The ambience there is peaceful especially with the addition of beautiful instrumental (often piano) melodies playing softly in the background. An elegant place of serenity and grace. I always feel blessed, more peaceful and in a better state of mind after spending time at Bella Donna's tea room.

      From the moment you drive up to the first sip of there delicious tea this tea room is by far my favorite. The decor is perfect, the service is outstanding and the attention to detail is unique and creative. You have your choice of several decorative and elegant hats to dress up for this fun occassion. They serve a variety of diffrent teas and the food is delicious. Not only is this a tea house but they have a boutique which is stocked with a plethira of tea related products. The service is always spectalcular and they are so jovial and friendly you feel like you are in a old friends home.

      My friends and I have been going to Belladonna's for the past several years and have enjoyed it everytime. The tea selections are fabulous, the food is wonderful and the scones are the best any of us have ever had. Donna and Nichol are the best at making you feel pampered. It's like a mini retreat. We never want to leave. But, Donna says if we stay past closing - we have to do dishes. So we go shopping in the boutique (while Nichol does the dishes).... The boutique has the best selection of china and girlie gifts around. We want everything. Try to catch Donna on one of her 'Mood sales'. She puts everything at 50% off, the only catch is - yo never know when she's in the mood. We are truly blessed to have Belladonna's up here in the A.V.

      What a treasure in the high desert. We would never have guessed to find a wonderful tea house in the A.V. We visit here several times a month on business and brought the office staff for a lunch meeting. The service was wonderful. The scones - made by Donna - were the best any of us have ever had. We travel extensively throughout the country and have never had scones so great. The pumpkin bacon soup was fabulous and we asked, but Donna will not give her recipe. We'll just have to come back....Yeah ! ! Thanks for a wonderfully unexpected time.

      Belladonna Gift Boutique and Tea Room is a wonderful place to spend a special time with family and friends. We have visited several times and have been amazed at the variety of foods, teas and gifts in the boutique. Nicole is the sweetest server and makes our visits even more delightful. We tell all our friends that this is the best tea experience around.

      Tearoom response:

      Nicole is the best, isn't she. We are truly blessed to have her. Thank you for your visit and hope to see you soon. Donna

      Belladonna's is the ultimate in a feminine tea--the perfect place for a girls day out! A reservation and the limited seating make for swift service. The owner is so wonderful and devoted you rarely have a tea time without her helping to serve you. My friend and I both drive from an hour away to meet there for tea several times a year!

      Tearoom response:

      Dearest Shalynn, We are so delighted that we made you feel special once again. We hope to always make you feel pampered and relaxed. Take time for yourself and friends. Please come again soon, Donna

      Belladonna is an excellent tea room experience. The homemade food is absolutely delicious. And the variety of tea compliments the freshly baked scones and tea sandwiches. I love the victorian decor with hats you can try on. I highly recommend Belladonna for your tea experience.

      What a lovely surprise to find in the high desert. We go to tea whenever we can and we never expected to find such a place here. The sersvice was so personal and caring, the scones and choices of teas was amazing and the soup is to die for. Thank you for such an incredible afternoon for my husband and I.
