      Very nice location with lots of little knick knacks about. The food is very very good. Obviously owned by someone who loves what she is doing!

      This is a great place. A friend and I had the owners to ourselves one rainy weekday and they were incredibly generous with their knowledge of tea and owning a teashop. They entertained us until 4:00 pm (I can't believe we spent that much time.) Food was excellent...Lillian wouldn't serve the soup until it was perfect...and well worth the wait. We walked in to the odor of fresh baked date bread and didn't resist having some. Great food and really fun place. We'll be back.

      This tea room is the sweetest I have ever been in. The staff is wonderful and the food is home made. I feel at home when ever I go there. The quiche is my favorite. I have meet so many new friends. Thanks girls. Carol 4/14/10

      I had previously looked forward to dining at Victorian Tea Parlor but on SEVERAL occasions I was told by the person answering the phone that it was closed for a myriad of reasons: for Dream Cruse or twice closing early because business was slow-another time booked for private party. I gave up on my fifth attempt. I had to work entirely too hard to experience the place. I have since discovered another Tea House that is quaint and consistently open for high tea.

      This tea room is a little gem! My family and I (a group of 4) popped in on a Saturday the 27th hoping for a quick cup of tea and possibly a sandwich or a scone and we found SO much more! The tea room itself is decorated in a very quaint, charming style with various tea cup sets displayed and what I would call 'brick-a-brack' everywhere. My group and I were pleasantly surprised to find quite a large menu of looseleaf teas (over a dozen or so) as well as the Specialty Teas which were offered to us by the owner and her lovely daughter. Our tea was expertly steeped and graciously poured for us by the staff and we were not left wanting for a fresh, hot pot of tea at any time during our visit. I cannot say enough about the wonderful food.....I personally ordered a simply delicious asparagus and mushroom quiche and a potato and ham soup which was served with a scone. Everyone in my group was extremely happy with the taste and temperature of the food we ordered. The serving portions were so good that we unfortunately had no room for dessert. This disappointed me as there was quite a selection of delicious looking treats to choose from. Guess I'll have to go back again and sample some of them! :) Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend based on tea selection, presentation, and food offerings.

      I had the opportunity to visit the Victorian Parlor Tea Room in July and found it uniquely quaint. The tables were decorated very lovely and tea merchandise was displayed throughout the shop. I ordered off the menu and the light lunch was delicious. I saw the prepared high tea plates and the food looked very good. I was introduced to an exceptional green/pineapple tea. The space is cozy and friendly. I traveled from Saginaw and would like to return and bring friends.

      Today I hosted a birthday tea for 29 guests. The food was delicious, presented on beautiful servers, and very filling. One of the guests had a food allergy and Lillian (the owner) went out of her way to prepare a special plate. Everyone was intrigued with stories of the ritual of tea. I would highly recommend this tea parlor for a fun lunch or a get together with friends.

      I am extremely disappointed with this establishment. I had my daughter's 5th birthday party this week and made it very clear on several occasions that because she is highly allergic to nuts, there could not be any nuts served for the tea. I could not have been any more clear on this issue and I explained how serious her allergy is. Notwithstanding, there were several pastry items served with nuts and when I complained about it and explained how upset I was about this issue, I basically received nothing but smug responses. Needless to say, we were lucky my daughter didn't end up in an emergency room. It was outrageous to me that my daughter's serious health issue was ignored. They were more concerned that the other children might like the pastries with nuts than the danger it posed to my child.

      Very small and the choice of food was limited to 2 items. The scones were delicious. It is a little cramped but cute.

      Compared to other tea rooms in the Metro-Detroit area that we have visited, this tearoom was sorely lacking. The seating area was cramped, rickety and crowded. There was NO selection offered as to what food/sandwiches/desserts one received. The overall experience was very disappointing. Never once did we see or were asked if we wanted a Russian teaball or a scone!!

      I plan a birthday surprise for one of my dearest friends, along with two other friends. Only one the friends had the pleasure of this lovely Tea Parlor. It was truley wonderful, delightful, cozy and relaxing. The Englis High Tea and service was just outstanding and there was so many wonderful gift items to look at. Everyone enjoyed themselves and found it to be so relaxing and comfortable. The birthday Girl was so pleased, because this was a different birthday celebration.Everone called me the next day and still could not stop talking about it. We are defintely returning. This was such a wonderful experience.
