Palmetto Coffee Shoppe and Tea Room (3 reviews)
My friend, Karen, and I traveled an hour to have high tea at the new location of Palmetto Tea Room. She has a separate location now from the coffee shop. Karen and I have been finding and traveling to tea rooms for the last seven years. It is a hobby of ours. And we rate and compare tea rooms, based on ambiance, food, and service. This place has it all! The tea room itself is really lovely and has a unique history, as does the whole town of Camden. It is in the renovated carriage house of a huge, historic home. Phyllis, the owner of the tea room has done an amazing job decorating and preparing the tea room. Big thumbs up for the ambiance! The food was truly remarkable - the scones, quiche, cucumber sandwiches, true red velvet brownies, cranberry pecan coleslaw, etc, etc, etc. Every bite of EVERY item was a taste of heaven! I even bought some to take home! As for the service, well... She was true, southern hospitality to the core. We could not have been treated any better! True tea rooms are a dying tradition. The economy has been the downfall of so many that we have visited. And they are becoming more and more difficult to find. I hope that folks will make the Palmetto Tea Room a frequent place to visit. You need to make reservations, so please call Phyllis and reserve your event today! You will not be disappointed!
I share the opinions of the review above. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tea. Ms. Wainscott was most gracious, and the tea and food was delicious. It made for a special, most-memorable afternoon.
Cute, cute, cute! My daughter and I really enjoyed our visit to Camden and the high tea at Palmetto's. The apricot scones were delicious. All the food and the 2 teas we tried were wonderful. The ladies working were so friendly and nice. We loved the live music; piano and guitar players! We will definitely return when visiting SC again!
