Located in Arlington's Historic Depot Square, you can order from a menu rich in freshly prepared items. Our signature items include cheese tea biscuits and heavenly chicken salad or our special pimento cheese served on a croissant. The Mama's Pudding is a local favorite, but there are many homemade desserts to choose from. The new bakery has multiple treats and sweets to choose from....everthing from scones and muffins, cupcakes and cookies, to homemade candies! You can also pick up a homemade entree, side, dessert, or bread to go....Just pop in the oven and you have a homemade dinner in minutes! Let The Grapevine whisk you away to a time when life was a little slower, a little gentler, and some warm conversation was just the thing.

      We took our mother to high tea for Mother's Day weekend, and the Grapevine did not disappoint. In fact, that's practically all we talked about for hours afterward. The scones are delectable. Sherry was so sweet and welcoming. There was another lady there with blond hair and a beautiful blouse; I didn't get her name, but I want to give her 'props' as well. We'll definitely be back.

      The Grapevine is one of my favorite places to visit! We have celebrated many occasions there and every time I hear of someone I know planning a party, I send them to the Grapevine! Sherry is very knowledgeable and loves to make you feel right at home. She takes care of all the little details that matter the most. You cannot go wrong here! The food is fantastic, but the service is even better. They really treat their customers like family.

      Me and my granddaughter happened upon your place while visiting my son in Memphis. We had lunch and the tea,food,service,decor,etc. was exceptional. We both had two different types of teas and two different lunch selections (we shared both - both were great; but my chix. salad selection was the best). The young lady who served us was very pleasant and knowledgable a/b menu suggestions. We were pleasantly surprised that we also got to met the owner (as she visited our table to ask how everything was). As we left the gift shop/bakery caught our eye and we made a few more purchases (the scones and homemade butter are worth a return visit alone). A 'gem' of a place to find; look forward to our next trip to Memphis so that we can visit again and take my son along as well.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Dixie,<BR> It was a delight to meet you and your granddaughter! Truly enjoyed visiting with you. I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit. Looking forward to seeing you soon and getting to meet your son. God Bless~Sherry

      There are so many more choices of loose leaf tea out there than just a flowering tea. You should at least offer a few more choices of loose leaf tea than flowering or standard black.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Wade,<BR> <BR> I am sure that you observed while visiting that we are very small. We currently do not have the space that it takes to properly store a large variety of loose leaf. We are very pleased that you visited us and and are glad that you found the food and service up to par.<BR> Sincerely, Sherry <BR>

      The quaint gift shop, ambiance, service and menu selection is excellent! Sherry is the utmost hostess as she greets each customer as family and ALWAYS with a cheery disposition and big ol' Southern smile. The homemade desserts are changed almost daily and definitely worth giving up the calories for. I highly recommend anyone looking for a unique luncheon experience to make the short, pleasant drive to Arlington for a taste of southern hospitality at it's best.

      Just came back from visiting this tea room. We were a group from out of town and I left feeling like I had just left a relative's house. Everything was just wonderful (I would drive back just for the scones!) and the service - it was like visiting that favorite relative who you haven't seen in a while who is so glad you came. As a bonus, the surrounding area is full of neat things to do. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!

      Everyone in my family loves The Grapevine. My son for the last two years has requested her carmel pie for his birthday cake and I often go by and get him a slice to take home. My daughter's favorite is the chicken salad. My husband and I eat there often for lunch. As a family, we have enjoyed the Murder Mystery Dinners which has had special memories for us. Sherry even agreed to cater our pregame basketball dinners that were a big hit with all the players. We have been eating there for years and Sherry has gotten to know everyone in our family and has become a very special friend.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Cynthia, Your words are too kind!!! You know I love you guys! I have enjoyed watching your children grow, hard to believe you have a senior this year.
