Our quaint Tearoom is nestled in the back of the shop in a 'garden room' right off the outdoor courtyard. It is an intimate setting and we prefer to have only 12-16 guests at a time. This allows us to treat you like a guest in our home. Our food is all homemade including the clotted cream and jam and is elegantly presented.

Call the shop for reservations or visit our website at for more information.

      I love 'The Things I Love' shop and suspected the Afternoon Tea would be of the same high quality. I was not disappointed! From the beginning to the end it was a visual and culinary treat. There wasn't a variety of tea offered, but the blend that was served was excellent. I highly recommend coming here for a wonderful afternoon. Plan a few extra minutes to browse the shop, you won't regret it!

      I have frequented several tea shoppes all over Northern Virginia, and The Things I Love is one of the best. The food was outstanding and plentiful, and the tea was fantastic. I was surprised at first that the tea was predetermined, since at other places you can choose your own tea from a selection, but the Summer Blend tea was superb. In fact, my friend and I snagged the last two boxes of tea to take home. A wonderful experience that I look forward to enjoying again.

      If you haven't been to tea at The Things I Love, you're missing out! By far the best tea room in Prince William County. The owner is attentive to every detail and ensures everyone has an excellent experience. The food is wonderful and atmosphere is everything you'd expect in a fine tea room. Additionally, the shop has a wide variety of unique gifts for the home. Plan on spending some time to browse either before or after tea -- or both! You won't be disappointed!

      I've been fortunate to have enjoyed afternoon tea at many a fine establishment from coast-to-coast - and the afternoon tea presented to guests of The Things I Love is by far my favorite. EVERYTHING about the afternoon tea here is amazing! The owner is very personable and she has created a very welcoming atmosphere. The staff is very gracious and attentive. The room is so pretty and from the moment you see it you know that you are going to have a wonderful time. The menu - oh, what a fabulous one it is! - changes monthly and the tea (blended for the shop) changes seasonally. The food is absolutely delicious...visually appealing and every morsel is so very fresh and so very good. The soups, the scones,and the sweet and the savory items are all so delectable. Every time I have afternoon tea here I'm looking forward to the next time even before I leave! I was introduced to The Things I Love by a very dear friend and I've since shared this experience with many friends. It is THE perfect place to treat a friend - or yourself!

      This is the nicest tea I ever attended. Not rushed, not pompous, exquisite details paid to every aspect of the tea. Set in side a beautifully decorated room, reserved just for those having tea, at tables draped in lace edged table cloths,set with mixed china patterns and silver and crystal. Even china name cards at each seat with the guests name on it. The tea room is part of a lovely gift shop located in the historic part of down town Manassas . Food was excellent and generous, prepared on sight by chef.Tea blend was delicious and something I had never had before. Atmosphere is so relaxed and everything about this place is charming. All areas of the shop are well appointed in decor, and a gift could be found for anyone here. It was nice to shop around a bit before and after the tea., could have used more time. Shop owner was attentive and happy to converse with her guests. I will go back again and again.

      One of my sewing girlfriends and I had afternoon tea yesterday and it was so wonderful. The food and service was excellent! We only had time for tea, but could have used a few more hours to look around this beautiful store. My sewing friends and I are definitely returning.
