      This is always a wonderful experience.Jacqueline is a very gracious hostess and serves nothing but the best in food and tea. The only problem is what table and teacup to choose! Oh my what a difficult choice! I have gone many times with friends and had a wonderful time. I hope you try this tearoom.

      My husband, daughter and I have been to Jacqueline's many times and my teenage son has also visited. I can save you a lot of reading just by saying that even he enjoys it and thought that Jacqueline was very nice as well. We have never had a bad experience there and love going. The only thing that can make it any better is if it was closer to where we live. We are an hour and a half away but think nothing of making the trip to Freeport just to go to Jacqueline's. She carries around a hundred teas. We haven't tried even half but it's hard to do because we can't get enough of our favorites which are Hot Apple Pie and Aphrodisiac. Her scones are always warm and not like many other places that taste like saw dust. The sandwiches are not only delicious. they look like they belong on the cover a magazine. Personally, I enjoy 'formal' tea and surroundings, but Jacqueline's is equally as beautiful with a touch of shabby chic meets Victorian lace. You can't help but feel calm and happy while you are there and since Jacqueline herself is always making sure your visit is perfect, you'd better believe it will be. We appreciate that it isn't just a business to her. Her home is not far away and when you go there, she treats you like guests in her home. She even opened once for my husband outside of her normal hours when he showed up unexpectedly to buy a gift for me. Oh, and the gifts, house wares, tea and accoutrements she also carries are beautiful. You probably won't be able to leave without some memento for yourself or a gift for someone else to bring the experience to them or your own home.

      My daughter and I are repeat customers. We love Jacqueline's delicious scones, outstanding tea selection and gracious service. Jacqueline is an amazing hostess and does everything by herself !! Her shop is a definite go-to for gifts. Can't wait to go back and taste this month's scones!!!

      This is a GREAT tea room. I take every visitor I can. Everyone is always impressed. Jaqueline is a great hostess. No ruch, enjoy your tea and friends. She makes everything there. The food is awesome. My 10 year old loved the little sandwiches. I highly recommend.

      I highly recommend this experience! The selection of teas is abundant & it is fun to try new varieties! I have brought a visiting friend from out of state, my mother when she is visiting and have purchased gift certificates for gifts. It is a wonderful place to go for a special occasion!

      Four of us, from Alabama & Georgia, were vacationing on Mt. Desert Island. We drove to Freeport for shopping & had noticed there was a tearoom. We made reservations & had the most wonderful tea experience! This is quite possibly the absolute best tearoom we've ever visited & we've visited many across the country. Every bite we ate was delicious & the tea selection is outstanding. Jacqueline is such a gracious hostess. This was well worth the 3 hour drive!

      The first time I visited Jacqueline's Tea Room was on a reccommendation from a friend. I expected a lovely afternoon, but I did not expect to feel like I had taken a vacation to a faraway, European destination. What a wonderful, memorable visit it was!Those two hours I shared with my mother at Jaqueline's are among my fondest memories.

      I think that Jacqueline does an excellent job at preparing tea, sandwich and pastry selections. She always makes me feel at home when my friends and I frequent the very quaint establishment. I moved from Maine 2 years ago but I make it my business to make a reservation at Jacqueline's when I visit.

      My guests, who come into The Clipper Merchant Tea House, tell me consistently that they have so enjoy going into Jacqueline's Tea Room in Freeport. They say the food is delicious, the atmosphere is charming, and it's always a delightful treat to go for a special occasion, or just to spend a few hours with a friend and enjoy lunch and tea. Now I can't wait to go and meet Jacqueline, experience what others have told me about this Tea Room, and to enjoy a lovely afternoon out with my daughter.

      This place is gorgeous. Not only is the atmosphere relaxing, but their LIVE HARPIST that played when I was there adds an even more comforting appeal. Tea was exquisite..the food was excellent - the quiche warm and melty, scones hot and fresh, sandwiches savory, and desserts put the entire experience over the top. Five stars!

      I've been here numerous times and have always enjoyed the ambiance, the service and the food. Jackie also prepares a celiac tea for those of us with gluten sensitivities. Try finding that elsewhere. All in all I give it a 5***** rating!!!!

      I have noticed a few good reviews for this tea room, and I am afraid I'm not sure why they are so positive. I did not find Jacqueline's Tea Room special in the least. I went to Jacqueline's a few weeks ago. The tea was very good, but the food was not. The finger sandwiches were over-seasoned, and the desserts were dry and overly sweet. The decor is cheap looking. The fireplace wasn't on despite the fact that it was a cold day. I have enjoyed myself much more at other tea places, and would not recommend this one.

      Grandma and Grandpa took me to tea for the 20th birthday and it was wonderful. The tea room was beautiful, the food fantastic, and the gift shop a pure delight. What a wonderful way to spend my special day. I'll remember it always. Also the next time I come for a visit, this is exactly where I want to come. A day for memories.

      Jacqueline's Tea Room is just what I am looking for when I'm thinking afternoon tea. We vacation in Maine every summer and I was delighted to find the tea room last year. Jacqueline suggests you plan on spending 2 hours and that's just what we did. The whole experience is delightful from the moment you enter until you reluctently leave. There is a wall full of teas, I think she said 70 and the scones, finger sandwiches and desserts are wonderful and a delight to the eyes as well as the stomach. Jacqueline is right there to refill your teapot when it's empty and encourages you to try different kinds. She has a variety of things for sale, teapots, cups, books, cards, teapot warmers, etc. I look forward to going back next summer!

      A delightful and unique 'queen's tea' experience. This is where I take my friends for an afternoon get- together that they will remember and talk about for a very long time. The ambiance is delightful and they has the best selection of loose teas that I've seen. If you love tea, treat yourself!

      A great tea room! Hopefully will prove a successful business and stick around for a while. The tea selection is the best I've ever seen, and tea pots are generously replenished. Food is good. Ambience is most pleasant. I highly recommend this tea room. Just unfortunate that they do not have regular hours. Reservation only.
