      Came for my friends daughter's Birthday. Connie stayed opened for us to come to her tea place. It was just great. Nancy our server was perfect. The food was excellent. Everything we had was good. Can't wait to come back for Christmas. You have to check this place out if you are in the area.

      I had another tea luncheon for my Granddaughter and some friends at Serendipity. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. The chocolate mousse cake was delicious. We can't wait to return.

      Tearoom response:

      Nancy, we loved having your granddaughter and her friends at the Tea Room for her birthday. It was such a fun afternoon. Thank you for coming and spending the day. Hope to see you again soon!

      Sorry to say we were disappointed.

      Tearoom response:

      I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit to the tea room. I wish you would have let us know that you were unhappy so that we could have addressed the situation. We are always striving to improve our quality of service and food, and would like to know how we can serve you better in the future.

      I don't know what tearoom the people visited who had a negative experience. It surely could not be Serendipity. Every single visit I have had (and there have been many) has been wonderful. The food is obviously homemade, the service is perfect, the decor is lovely and relaxing. I recommend Serendipity to everyone I know. The cheesecake in particular is the best I have ever tasted. If you haven't yet visited, do so - you will not be disappointed.

      My friend Heidi and i visited recently. The staff was extremely sweet and knowledgeable. The decor was nice, but I have to say I wish I would have listened to Liz as the food did not meet our expectations.

      I usually don't comment on websites. But felt the need. Once a month my friend and I try to visit a different Tea Room for a girls lunch out. I use Tea Map to help me choose. When I read the review from Liz, I felt I had to comment. I was there with my friend in February and found the shop quite charming. It doesn't look exactly like the pictures, no seat covers, but seemed brighter, think there are different curtains. From other tea rooms I have been, they will only give you 2 small pots of water and you choose 1 bag per pot. Here we could try as many teas as we wanted. They even would brew us loose tea, if we wanted! I had a great salad with chicken salad on top. I didn't have the soup, but my friend had potato, and said it might have been the best she has ever had. She had some kind of sandwich, but can't comment on that, other than to say she ate it all. We then had a slice of cake for dessert, (some kind of almond) and it was perfect. Crisp almonds on the outside, yummy! I only gave a good rating for food because there could be a few more choices maybe two or more soups. The service was great! Such sweet girls, I didn't meet the owner. Do wish there was a restroom in the Tea Room, it was cold that day and we had to go outside to go to the door right near the entrance. But if I was dining out, and didn't like my food, I certainly would ask for help. I hope to return someday. But we have alot of other tea rooms to try first. But I say try it, you will like it!!

      Tearoom response:

      Anne,<BR> <BR> Thank you for the comments. I am so glad that you and your friend enjoyed your day out. I am happy you liked the almond torte cake, it is one of my personal favorites. I will look into expanding the menu slightly. We have added a new salad and sandwich to the menu.<BR> I also wish we had a restroom in our tiny Tea Room, maybe some day. But you do get a chance to shop during your short break from your meal:)<BR> Hope to meet you here one day!<BR> <BR> Thanks again,<BR> Connie

      I don't know why the last person didn't like their experience because we absolutely loved it. The food was delicious, including the soup & the service was excellent. The décor was everything you would except for a tea room. It was just lovely. I would highly recommend the Serendipity Tea Room to all my family & friends. We will definitely be back soon.

      Tearoom response:

      Jena,<BR> Thank you for the kind words. Hope to see you again soon!

      

      Very disappointed. We waited quite a while to return only to find the tearoom we grew to love is no longer the same. Entering the door, we felt the tearoom lacked the elegance it once had. The servers assured us that the recipes were the same and we would enjoy our lunch. That couldn't have been further from the truth. The sandwich, salad, and soup (3 frozen meatballs) tasted like it was fast food and not fresh. We were looking forward to dessert and everything tasted frozen and dry. I'm not sure who is cooking and baking but improvements are needed to keep Serendipity's doors open. When we visited last May, we recommended Serendipity to our family and friends. After this experience with the higher food prices and lower quality food, we will be sure to tell our family and friends not to waste their time and money. So sorry to see such a sweet place going down the tubes.

      Tearoom response:

      Liz,<BR> I am sorry that you had a negative experience at our tea room. I wish you would have let us know during your visit that you were unsatisfied with your meal. We, at Serendipity, strive to create a pleasant experience for all of our guests. I can assure you that our food is prepared fresh daily, and I'm sorry that you were unhappy. In regards to your comment about our prices, they have remained the same since the change of ownership. I hope you will give us another chance. If you would like to give us a call to discuss your experience, we would appreciate your additional feedback.

      I traveled over an hour to get to this tea house. I was not disappointed when I got there. The server was so attentive and her suggestions dead on. I felt like I was at home here instead of in somebody's tea house. I took a friend who's never been to a tea. She is a very picky eater and for her to eat EVERYTHING given to her speaks volumes to the taste and quality of the food. Never met the previous owners, but the new one is delightful and I really enjoyed talking with her and the server after our tea was over. Experience was well worth the time spent to get here. I will definately be going back here again.

      Paulette,<BR> <BR> Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I am so glad you had a great experience at the Tea Room. Love to welcome you back soon!<BR> <BR> Connie

      I traveled 2hrs with a friend to this very delightful tea room. A+ on the decor. The food was wonderful. The butter pecan scone was truly the best scone I have had in all the tea rooms I have visited! (and that's a lot) The server was very personable & attentive. It was definitely worth the trip & we plan to go another time. And those who have mentioned former management no longer there, give the new management a chance, I believe you will be satisfied.

      I was so sad to learn the tearoom is under new management when I went for lunch. We have been coming to the tearoom for a few years now. Luckily, it looks the same and Nancy is still there, but it just feels different. Just want to tell the Pieris we miss you and wish you well. It's just not the same without you.

      We have been visiting Serendipity for a few years now and were saddened to learn that Piper and Don decided to sell the tearoom. Celebrating our birthdays there has become a family tradition. From Piper's delicious menu and attention to every detail to Don letting us sample the wonderful desserts and ice cream, we will truly miss you. Thank you for always making our family visits so amazing. Best of luck.

      Serendipity Tearoom was a Wonderful place to visit. Good Luck to Piper & Donny now that they have sold the Tearoom. We will always remember having Lite Tea at 'Our Table.' We enjoyed coming from the very beginning all the way up until the day they closed their door for the last time. Piper always had delicious food and paid close attention to every detail of the meals and decour in the tearoom. That's what made it SO SPECIAL. She was so attentive and made everyone feel they were the only people there. Piper definitely deserved all the great reviews and awards she recieved over the years. No one can say Serendipity Tearoom without thinking of Piper Pieri. I know our memories will always be CHERISHED. Thankyou so much Piper. Lots of Love.

      We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for supporting us these past 5 years. We regard so many not only as customers, but as our dear friends. Serendipity has become a memorable part of our lives. We have overcome pitfalls and used our imaginations and talents while building a successful restaurant that we hope our friends have enjoyed and come to cherish as much as we have. Selling the tearoom was an extremely difficult decision. We will take our wonderful memories and feelings of success and accomplishment with us. We sincerely want to thank Lyric & Kaitlyn, Megan, Dena, Nancy, Jenn, Bridgette, Leah & Kate for your love and support. We could not have done this without your talent and dedication. We are so proud of what we have accomplished together ~ we made a great team! Serendipity - the accidental discovery of something pleasant! Thanks Mr. Webster; we couldn't have said it better ourselves! Good luck to the new owners, Connie & Pete! We wish you much success!

      I ate here today with my Mother and daughter. We have eaten at many tea houses in the area, and we have all three agreed this one is at the top of our list. The food was superb. Piper and Nancy were wonderful, friendly hostesses. Even though Serendipity is about a 50 minute drive for us, we will definitely make a return visit.

      My mother and I recently visited Serendipity for a Mother's Day lite tea. We had never been there before, but heard so many great things (all of which were true). Our server was friendly, quick, and fun (she even took our picture at the table). The food was delicious from the scones to the sandwiches. Piper was an excellent host and made us feel so welcome. The decor was beautiful and vintage, there were so many details to appreciate. We had such a lovely time and plan on coming back for lunch very soon. Thank you so much for a wonderful Mother's Day!

      Dear Piper Thanks again for making our ladies tea so very special. You made us all feel like royalty with the decor & impeccable service. We had many first timers who raved about their fabulous evening, as did we all!! Thank-you for my lovely gift which I have displayed on my serving table. We will continue to enjoy your beautiful tea room for our own personal use and church functions in the future. There may be many tea rooms but yours will continue to be on the top of our list because of the awesome service, decor & delicious food. We are blessed to call you our friend!! Your husband and wonderful staff are as warm and friendly as you!! In Christ Jill Teis

      My friends and I are fortunate to have found this treasure. The delicious, home-made food, beautiful atmosphere, and superb service by the owner and her staff make this quite an enjoyable experience.

The 'light' tea includes four delicious courses, and an extensive variety of tea.

I highly recommend the experience to everyone.

      I took my Mom and sister to Serendipity and couldn't have picked a better time. The holiday decor was beautiful. They even lit the beautiful candelabra during our lunch. The food was amazing (we took chicken salad and scones home), the service spot on, and the attention to detail was perfect down to the floral decorated sugar cubes. We enjoyed our lovely afternoon and will visit again for sure.

      I had the pleasure of spending a December afternoon at Serendipity Tea Room with my Best Friend. I was an adorable place with lovely decor and exceptional service (hats too!). I would recommend it to everyone. We had full tea with salad, soup, sandwiches and dessert. Being vegetarian they did a nice job of meeting my needs, the soup and dessert were my favs but above all the tea was lovely. I can't wait to return!

      I visited Serendipity for high tea with my best friend as a pre-Christmas treat. We had such an amazing time. The ambiance is just perfect - clean and cute. The food and tea was wonderful. I highly recommend the Apricot tea, which was on special that day. It was so good I ended up buying some to bring home. I think the best part of my experience (besides the food which was really yummy) was the service. Everyone was happy and knowledgeable, willing to go out of their way without hovering or being overbearing. I never felt rushed, which was great because I could have stayed all day! Can't wait to go back again!

      I visited Serendipity for the first time in December. I honestly felt like I was in a Dickens Village scene. The victorian decor was beautiful, the food was wonderful (I can't stop thinking about the chicken salad and carrot cake ice cream), and the staff (Nancy) was so sweet. I recommend this little place to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.

      This was my second time to the tea room and I have to say the food was much better this time, I don't know if it's because there was only two of us and the last time there was six. The scones were much better this time and the mushroom tortellini soup was out of this world and I really need to go back for some more.

      This sweet little tea room is packed with Victorian charm and accents. Beautifully coordinated china, napkins, decorations. I hosted a surprise birthday tea for a friend and couldn't have been any happier with the results. The food, as always, was fresh and delicious. The staff is so very friendly and pleasant. Piper, the owner, was so very helpful and gave attention to all the details I requested - china colors, decorations, napkins, tweaks to the menu - all part of my plan. The guest of honor even had a rose-decorated happy-birthday cup. My lucky guests all took home a half-pound of Serendipity's wonderful chicken salad. A perfectly lovely day!

We even splurged on dessert which was scrumptious!! The food was excellent as well as the atmosphere and presentation. Our server couldn't have been more delightful! I would recommend treating yourself to a visit to Serendipity! You'll be glad you did!

      We celebrated my daughters 6th birthday at Serendipity Tea Room and throughly enjoyed the experience. The wait staff were friendly and very helpful. The Princess party consisted of a special Pink Lemohenade in their own teapots that they served in their own Saucer and cups. They had grilled cheese sandwiches shaped like hearts and strawberries. The dessert was strawberry ice cream with real strawberries in it. The experience was really enjoyable and we hope to do it again.

      Tearoom response:

      Sondra, So glad you and your daughter enjoyed her princess party! The girls were so excited and so well-behaved! Looking forward to your next visit!

      I went here with my family for a mother day/birthday tea. Tea here was fantastic involved several courses - soup, salad, sandwiches, dessert, in addition to the varieties of tea. Also included in the group was an almost 5 year old girl. Not only did they handle my mom, and my sister's mother-in-law's mother's day tea/meals, but also they prepared a special Princess tea for my niece which consisted of a grilled cheese sandwich in the shape of a heart, strawberries, and marshmallow treats (and of course her very own little tea pot) as well as a set of stickers to play with. The two men in my group (dad and brother) were also very pleased at the variety of the tea and courses. The location is also along a river and in a quiet overall area with quaint shops. It was a fun time for all. We were very pleased. I had 9 adults and 1 child in my group.

      This is an awesome tea room! The food is delicious the atmosphere is charming, and the people who run it are really genuinely great people! I am a very skeptical person who really has to enjoy a place to want to eat/socialize somewhere,and I would eat there everyday if I could-its delicious. Serendipity tea room is a therapeutic retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life and the same ol' same ol' unpersonal bland chain restauraunt. A+!

      Tearoom response:

      I didn't think it could get better, but you need to see this tearoom decorated for Valentines Day. So sweet I didn't want to leave. We visited the other day during the snow and I felt like I was in a Dickens Village scene! Enjoyed a white chocolate sconce and apricot tea. The chicken salad was wonderful as usual. We will be back again!

Such a quaint and inviting little place. The menu assortment was homemade, fresh, and delicious. Definitely our new favorite place. Keep up the good work Piper and Don and we will see you in the spring!

      My friends and I visited the tea room for lunch over the holidays and the Serendipity Tea Room exceeded our expectations! Not only were the decorations beautiful, the food and the servers were amazing. Our lunches were more than enough food for one person, but how could anyone deny homemade cheesecake?! Everything was excellent and I cannot wait to go back!

      The saying, 'good things come in small packages' is an understatement when referring to Serendipity Tea Room. We enjoyed a candlelight tea during the Christmas season and it surpassed any we have experienced in the city. Take an afternoon and savor the delicious foods and atmosphere. You will be glad you did! Thank you Serendipity for a wonderful evening to remember.

      Just wanted to thank you Serendity for an amazing lunch last week! My mom doesnt get out too often so bringing her here was an added joy for me! We always spent afternoons sipping tea in my childhood, making me feel grown up. Now as an middle aged adult, Im repaying my mom for those special moments! This close to the holidays you managed to come through with such welcoming and honest service. We couldve spent hours looking around your shop at all the amazing collections you have. As well as being able to actually cross off a few from my xmas list with your available gift arrangements! We LOVED the selection of teas! And being able to actually unwind with conversation and very well prepared food brought back old memories! Mom says thank you, and we wish you blessings for the holidays! Thanks again -Abi

      WOW! My mother and I attended 'Lite Tea' with 4 courses this past Saturday. The entire experience was amazing... 1st, White Chocolate Scone. 2nd, Homemade Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Soup. 3rd, Homemade Chicken Salad Sandwich with Homemade Cranberry Relish and Tomato Bacon Basil Grilled Cheese. 4th, Cranberry Cookie, A Peanut Butter Truffle and Homemade Cheesecake. We enjoyed every last crumb of the meal. They have an amazing amount of tea to choose from, including decaf. The decaf 'House Tea' Apricot was delish! We look forward to going back in December 'just because'. Wonderfully decorated. Pleasant and cheerful staff.

      My friend and I just happened to find Serendipity on the internet... We are so glad we did! The atmosphere was very warm and inviting. There was a huge variety of teas including decaffeinated ones. I personally had the decaf Apricot tea. I ordered the special of the day which was 1 chicken salad sandwich, a raspberry salad topped with feta cheese and walnuts, and a scoop of ice cream for dessert! In addition to that, both my friend and I ordered the homemade Raspberry Cheesecake... It was WONDERFUL!!! We are definitely spreading the word to our friends and family. It was truly a great experience!

      Wonderful experience. Atmosphere charming,relaxing. China cups, tea pots and dishes accessorized with linens and candles made it especially inviting. The variety of teas(bags) to choose from was extensive. Apricot and Ginger- Peach (Ashby) brand were delicious. We had high tea and taste and presentation left you satisfied and excited for the next course. The chicken salad sandwich with the cranberry relish on the side was scrumptous! Yummmm...so good. The 'grilled cheese' sandwich with balsamic spread was absolutely wonderful too.(Served hot). Beef vegetable soup with noodles was delicious. Great pairing if you choose to do lunch instead of high tea. Can't wait to go back for either. Our server was pleasant and very attentative. Courses kept on coming. Always attentative to our tea pot and water always hot and full. Had to get the dessert course to go. Full. She packed up a high tea to go. My sister said' you brought everything'; went straight for the scone.Thought the apricot tea was great. She enjoyed it as well, but unfortunately we couldn't take the ambiance to her. Plan to return for lunch or high tea for her birthday celebration in Dec. Well worth the one hour and 15 minute drive. Enjoyed Serendipity. Would recommend you take your best friends for a treat. Shopping in quaint little block too.

Even though it was a 2 hour ride for us, it was by far so worth it! Decorations - Adorable, Cleanliness - Perfect, Food - To Die For, Hostesses - The Best Part. We will now make this 2 hour trip for special occasions such as Christmas Tea and Mother's Day. All my sister said all day was I had the best birthday ever. Thank you for making her day so special!

      Hidden wonder! My mom and I accidentily found this wonderful tea room. We came to see my fathers family in Allenport and drove by this area twice before we turned in. The place is an oasis away from the hustle/bustle of life. When you enter you are greeted by a delightful young lady (who will be going to college this fall). Guys, she is beautiful inside and out - a rare quality in our young girls of today. The food was delicious and presented in a beautiful manner. The atmosphere was so peaceful we felt at home as we love these types of resturants. The owner was delightful and came out of the back to visit with her patrons. One of the ladies coveted an item and we all teased the owner to frisk her before she leaves. Next thing we know, she is bringing out the item in a bag to give. That is great business and a big heart. As we left, she gave us a wonderful portion of chicken salad, rolls, and cranberry sauce for mom and I to take to the hotel for a late night snack (delicious). If I lived closer this would be the place I bring my friends and family or a place for me to run away to. You are doing a great job; good luck to the daughter in all her endeavors. God Bless.

      My daughter-in-law and I started a very special 'girl's weekend' at Serendipity on 6/18/11. We selected Serendipity from 3 choices in the area based on their friendly conversation when I called for reservations. We loved the beautiful decor, the vast selection of teas, the continual good service in keeping us supplied with fresh hot water, the delicious food included in our high tea, and the excellent service we received by the entire staff. We had a chance to meet the owner who stopped at our table to make sure we were pleased. It is obvious that she takes pride in her establishment. We can highly reccomend Serendipity!!!

      My grandmother has been taking me to tea shops for over seven years, and I have always loved going to Serendipity. The owner is lovely, and very welcoming to all her guests. The room is always decorated beautifully, no matter what the season. And if you get the chance, try sitting outside on their deck in the early spring or late summer. It's very peaceful along the river. I will admit, I have seen a better selection of tea before. But I have never had such delicate foods before. My favorites are the strawberry soup, which is a creamy summer treat, and their white chocolate scones. The atmosphere is laidback, and sure to be a smash with young ladies and grandmothers alike.

      Wow...really. I found Serendipity on this website while looking for a good stopping place along I-70. I am so glad I did! I didn't have a GPS so I had a little trouble finding it. It is tucked in some shops along the river. One thing is for sure-it is so worth finding! The room itself is small and wonderfully decorated. The menu offers all the things you would want for a 'tea' lunch so we had a very hard time ordering. We chose the chicken salad sandwich and it was heavenly. Even better than the chicken salad was the peach soup. I will crave that until I can go back. To finish we had a coconut cherry scone. I have eaten a lot of scones in my day (being married to a Brit), but this was incredible. I also have to give major props to Piper and her staff for looking after our girls. We had four with us ages 5-9 and they had a blast. Piper set them up with their own tea pots, a cute lunch complete with pink marshmallows and FANCY HATS! It was adorable and they loved it. When the girls got restless and we feared our tea time was out to soon, but Piper brought the girls out crafts to do so we could enjoy another cup! Really, as you can tell, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

      Tearoom response:

      Amy, So happy you found us! Your wonderful girls made it fun for us as well! Looking forward to your next visit!

      Serendipity Tea Room and Cafe is truly the best Tea Room experience I have ever had each time I return. I call myself Serendipity's regular 'holiday' customer. I have had the opportunity to visit Serendipity on Valentine's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, and now during the Easter season. I await in excitement the decor of the upcoming season or holiday. Piper is continuously changing her decorations and table arrangements according to the season or holiday. Not only is the decor and atmosphere wonderful, but the food is superb with exceptional taste and presentation (Raspberry Salad, my favorite!) and the service is outstanding! Each time I enter the Tea Room I feel welcome and like I become a part of something very special. I cannot wait to visit again for the next holiday!!

      Just recently I have started to become interested in learning about tea rooms. Through my research I have been able to check out various tea rooms around the country. Last week I took a drive to Speers Pennsylvania and my destination was the Serendipity Tea room. As I first stepped through the door I felt a positive vibe. The exceptional food was secondary to the great service and the kind hearted people who are in charge of this establishment. Take the time to visit Serendipity Tea Room because it will open your eyes to a whole new dinning room experience.

The Peach Soup was fabulous as was the chocolate mint scone. The sandwiches were absolutely delicious and the desserts were definitely 'decadent'. Finishing off with a chocolate covered strawberry was over the top. My friends have said they will go back for their get togethers and I certainly will be back whenever I'm back in Pennsylvania.

      We choose Serendipity Tea Room to hold a baby shower for my daughter on Mother's day weekend. The entire experience is one I'm sure all in attendance will remember. The food was delicious and the presentation outstanding. I would describe the atmosphere as Elegantly whimsical and Stacy and her staff go beyond expectation to make sure everyone enjoys the Teahouse. Since we knew it was a girl, Serendipity covered the tables in a pink and black baby motif linen, along with linen napkins and a pink pacifier napkin ring. So sweet! Our menu started with a lemon cranberry scone served with lemon curd and homemade devonshire cream. Which my daughter said,'was to die for.' She is now craving them back in Las Vegas. Followed by a salad, loaded potato soup, chicken salad sandwich, and a apple turkey croissant. We ended with the most original brownie cut into the shape of a baby carriage. I would highly recommend this tea room for any group event as well as a delightful afternoon tea. We plan on going back every time we are in town.

As you step through the door you are greeted by pretty pink walls, a beautiful mural, tables that are as unique as the guests that enter in, and a wonderful group of women greeting you with warm smiles and an inviting hello. They have a wide assortment of hot teas, a tasty 6 course meal at their High Tea parties and an atmosphere that is warm, enviting and second to none. It was a fabulous afternoon with a group of ladies who each told stories that touched my heart.
