We also take reservations for groups of 10 or more on Saturdays and Mondays. No walk-ins on Saturdays or Mondays. We are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Follow us on Facebook facebook/candleberry.tea and at facebook/giftbox.frankfort. On our facebook pages we announce special menu items, events and other important information. Candleberry's has become quite a popular place for lunch; therefore, we suggest (not required, but suggested) especially if you are coming from out of town or have a group of 6 or more, that you call ahead for reservations to insure a table. Candleberry's is an upscale tea room/ cafe with a distinct menu that includes authentic homemade recipes, quality ingredients, and quaint presentation offered in a cozy, intimate, charming, relaxed atmosphere. Candleberry's is well known for our incredible, unfortgettable dessert options. In fact, we have been voted 'Frankfort's Best Place for Dessert' by the People's Choice' Awards sponsored by the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce. We continue to be devoted to offering our guests the best desserts --all homemade -- around. Each day we have an offering of desserts that are sure to put a smile on your face. Additionally, we have started serving gourmet desserts #cupcakes, brownies or Sweetie Pies... not the usual fare# starting on Wednesdays and going through Friday. These cupcakes have become a huge hit with our regulars. Our full menu (which changes monthly) can be found on our website at www.candleberrytearoom.com. While there you can also review of wide selection menu of loose leaf teas, find out about our upcoming events, and many other things. Our seasonal menus receive wonderful reviews from both women and men guests. The traditional tearoom fare is there, but also a lot of heartier and interesting menu choices. There is something for every taste and appetite. We have really focused on healthy choices for this new menu to help those who are trying to be more health-minded in the new year. You can also follow us on Facebook where we post photos of happenings at our place. You can also view our recent TV commercial from our website or from Facebook. Our facebook pages are indicated above. After dining, please visit The Gift Box for beautiful unique gifts! Spring is in the air... and Valentine's Day and Easter are just around the corner. We understand that it is because of Jesus Christ that we are blessed beyond measure. We praise Him for His guidance, His protection, His steadfastness, and His many blessings. He is our business partner, He is our life partner, He is our Lord and Savior. Everything we receive is from His Grace.

      This is a wonderful tea house. I wanted to do something special for my mom this Mother’s Day so we to the tea house for high tea to celebrate. This was our first visit to Candleberry Tea House and we absolutely loved it. The tea room has a warm cozy feel as you come in. There were flowers on our table and it was set with an assortment dishes containing everything you need for tea like fresh lemon, sugar cubes. The food was excellent. We had so much food we could hardly eat it all. There were 4 courses, scones, soup, sandwiches and then dessert. We each got our own pot of tea and the selection of teas is absolutely amazing. We got the blood orange and the mother’s bouquet and loved both teas. We had a great time and will definitely go back. Thank you Andy and all the staff for a very memorable trip.

      Tearoom response:

      Dorinda... we enjoyed your visit with your mom... we are so glad to hear you enjoyed it also. We have posted your photo on our facebook page to show off your hats. :) We look forward to seeing you again. ((don't forget to tell Greg, I said Hi.... it is such a small world isn't it).

      I took my Mother to Candleberry Tea Room for tea and desert for Mother's Day (we actually came on the Saturday before, as the Tea Room is closed on Sunday). Candleberry's is one of her favorite get-aways. We continue to be impressed by the warm and friendly atmosphere, the variety of teas, and the quality of the deserts--especially the most delicous coconut pie. Candleberry's cocount pie is Mom's favorite and is now my favorite also. Candleberry is truely a gem to be enjoyed.

      Tearoom response:

      Bill... thanks for bringing your mom to our place for Mother's Day. We are so glad to see her again... that pie Michele makes is fantastic, isn't it. (I can brag on her culinary skills, even if she won't). Hope your trip back to Iowa was/is enjoyable. We'll see you next time you come to visit your mom.<BR>

The food was wonderful - fresh hot scones, soup, the tea sandwich tray - one for the adults and a separate one for my granddaughter. Then the dessert tray - a wonderful variety of desserts and again two separate trays. We were given the option of two flavors of tea. It was kept hot and poured often. All in all it was a lovely experience and we all had a wonderful time. We are already talking about going back again and who we want to take along!

      For my 40th birthday, I decided to go antique shopping and visit a tearoom. I first tried 2 other tearooms in Simpsonville and Frankfort that were closed down. I then ended up here at 1:45pm. There was a small shoppe selling jewelry, candles and a little home decor. I was pleased to see Harney tea! I ordered a sampler and a pot of Chocolate Mint Tea and let them know I wanted to try a few different flavors. The waitperson was pleasant, but started turning out the lights around me before I got my food. Before finishing my food, the owner/manager came to my table in a huff and said that she was told I wanted to order another flavor. I confirmed, but wanted to wait until I finished my meal and the pot I had. I was rudely told they could make it to go. Two minutes later, she briskly brought my check and gave instructions to pay. She almost insisted I leave a tip, asking how much. I was never offered dessert and was told no less than 5 times that they close at 2 and she still had employees on the clock waiting for me to leave. I apologized for imposing and left. I usually try to visit a different tearoom for my birthday, try new flavors and stock up. There was no way I was going to buy anything from them, and there's no way I'll be back. I've never been treated so rudely or made to feel so unwelcome in my life! Don't seat a customer at 1:45 if you plan on escorting them out at 2:00. In these times, it's hard to imagine a restaurant that has so many customers that they don't need any more! That's not even to mention common courtesy! This experience fell far below the gracious hosting you'd expect when looking for a tearoom. Ms. Manners was obviously on vacation!

      My friend and I had lunch at your tearoom last Saturday. We enjoyed everything very much. The Kentucky Hot Brown (my friend ordered it, but I got a taste) was awesome. We didn't really have room for dessert, but got some anyway. Wow, the bread pudding is the best I have ever had anywhere.

      Have to admit...I love controversy and am somewhat curious! I saw some negative comments on Facebook that mentioned Tea Map site and I read some pretty damaging comments here too, so I decided to visit your tea room to see what all the fuss was about! I was expecting a bad experience, but wanted to see for myself how such a place stays in business. I'm not sure whether to be delighted or disappointed! Nothing negative here, just a complete jewel of a tea room. Warm hospitable service, lovely placement of the food on my plate, amazing food of great variety, and the best dessert I have ever seen in any restaurant. So... I do not know what happened over the weekend, but am thankful that the comments made me curious enough to visit! I will of course return, to enjoy the most delightful place I have ever experienced for lunch! And… I won’t believe everything I read on FB and I will be back!

This feeling carries over to the service, atmosphere and food in the tearoom. Thank you for not being afraid to show your beliefs. It meant a lot to me.

      I was one of the 18 women who was arriving for high tea. When we arrived as you've heard they were not prepared for us. I believe that they were aware of our month advance reservation when it was called in but apparently the staff did not write it down - 100% their fault, no miss communication!! So as christians we tried to make the best of the situation. That was quite difficult as the service was very poor!! I had to get up twice to go and find someone to serve us. The only one who seemed genuine was the woman in the back making our food. She happened to be at the reservation desk when I needed assistance and she was happy to help. I highly recommend that you find another tea house! This is not #1 in my book!!

      Tearoom response:

      We have fully accepted responsibilty for the misunderstanding concerning the reservation. It is unfortunate that we could not do anything to correct this mistake. If we could have, we would have since we strive to be extremely accomodating and to provide quality food, service and atmosphere. We understand this group's disappointment.

      Reservations for tea were made over a month ago,however, when we arrived after driving for almost 2 hrs, we were told that there was no record of our making reservations. Why would I make reservations over a month before today, 4/10/10, and also give a credit card # to hold the reservations, and also told the lady that we wanted high tea. Was told to call the day before if there cancellations, because there 18 in our party. We did have cancellations, so I called on 4/9 and told a man that we had some cancellations for tea and he said he would tell them. He even acknowledged that he had talked to me the day before. I had also posted on facebook on Fri. that I was looking forward to coming to tea on Sat. and they responded that they were looking forward to our coming. We went on & ordered lunch, and two of our people NEVER did get their lunch. The food was nothing extra. I don't know how this place was # 1 as we have been to tearooms all over Ky. & it definitely not # 1. WE WILL NOT BE BACK!!!!!

      Tearoom response:

      There was a misunderstanding about the reservation for High Tea. We did have record of the reservation for 18 for lunch. We have apologized with complete sincerety numerous times about the mistake with the reservation. We totally understand this group's disappointment and understand that they were upset. We do not however understand some of the other comments they have made about the quality of food and service. We always strive to provide the highest possible quality and service and have provide such for many years.... the hundreds of positive comments we have received on TeaMap and on Facebook attest to that fact. Again, we are very sorry for the misunderstanding concerning the reservation, had there been any way to accomodate the group in that manner we would have done so.

      The ladies of my family tour Kentucky and visit tea houses. We decided to visit candleberry since it is listed as number one in Kentucky. We made reservations for high tea, when we arrived they didnot have our reservation correct. Some of us drove 2 hours and some were here for their first high tea. We ordered off the menu. Some never got their food! We asked for more crackers twice and got one package each time which became comical. We had to get up twice to get someone for more drinks. Not sure how this place got first. We brought 18 people and none of us will ever be back!

      Tearoom response:

      There was a misunderstanding about the reservation for High Tea. We are not sure what happened but took full responsibility for the error. Since High Tea preparation takes several hours, we were not able to correct this mistake. However, we attempted to provide the quality service and food that we offer everyday for lunch. This group was disappointed from the start, and we can understand that and feel absolutely terrible about our mistake with the reservation.

The food was slightly slower than the last time we visited, but not badly timed considering the crush that was occuring. Our tea came out brewed perfectly, the food was outstanding as usual! Thank you for another lovely visit!

      The place is a nice atmosphere but the food leaves a lot to be desired. I found their recipe for their success and it comes from GFS. Nothing is homemade it is all pre-packaged food that is simply warmed and served. So I find that the prices for un-homemade food here is a bit too steep.

      Tearoom response:

      This is a disgruntled former employee, who seems to have a problem with our success. Our menu has chicken salad, pimento cheese, olive nut, tuna salad, dilly egg salad, Kentucky Hot Brown, herb tomato soup, Ruebens, the Italian, grilled cheese w/ bacon, grilled Bacon Egg, mushroom quiche, asperagus quiche, country sausage quiche, classic BLT, turkey blt, congealed tea salads, courtyard salad, paradise pie, east of eden pie, coconut merringue pie, chocolate merringue pie, nilla wafer cake, Ky bread pudding with bourbon sauce, brownie delight, and much much more… NONE of which can be bought pre-made at Gordon Food Service. (We do buy our meats, potato chips, mayo, chocolate morsels, carmel sauce, napkins, straws, coffee, etc from GFS).

      We have always had a pleasant experience on our visits. We don’t get to come often enough because we live about an hour away. They serve whole leaf tea with a wide variety. The food positively compliments the teas and is always fresh and delicious. The gift shop attached to the tea room is adorned with all sorts of interesting and tasteful items – and it seems to change everytime we come by. However, what makes this tearoom unique from others I have visited, is the staff. The owner and her serving staff make your experience absolutely wonderful. There is a gentleman waiter that was there on one our latest visit (he asked that we leave a comment here) that made us feel like the only customers even though the place was rather busy. I highly reccommend Candleberry tearoom to anyone wanting a peaceful afternoon to visit with a friend

      A few of us office ladies have been coming to the Tea Room for a couple of years and we always have our Christmas lunch there. While we have been satisfied with the food I am afraid after today's experience we will not be returning. Food was great as always but a misprint in the menu is not the customers fault. It was not appreciated the way that I was spoke to about the situation and I was told that I had to pay that. It was only a dollar more but besides the point. I know that I did not have to pay the amount and after the way I was treated I did not feel as though I should. The woman that waited on us was apologetic and I informed her that it was not her fault but another woman, I assume a manager, was not so polite. This is not the first time that we have had an instance where someone has had a poor sense of people skills but this will be the last time we will stopping in. Sad because we have enjoyed many a lunch there.

      Two women and a man. We knew what to expect, but Mike was a little hesitant about eating at a teahouse. (He envisioned “girly” food that would leave him still hungry. But once he saw the menu and got his food in front of him, there was no doubt that he enjoyed himself very much. It is so nice to have a place to eat that appeals to the femine but yet is enjoyable to the masculine also. We will be back, with Mike!

The ambiance of the gift shop and tearoom are so unique and unexpected. We have never ever enjoyed a meal out so much, including other tearooms we have visited in the past. We were a party of five celebrating a girls day out and a better time could not have been had. The food was served quickly and wonderfully prepared. There was a wide selection of homemade desserts which we each got something different and passed them around. All were absolutely delicious.

When we were getting back in our car after our visit, my husband said that he would like to come back again soon. He said that your turkey BLT was wonderufl and that he saw many things on the menu he would like to try. He also enjoyed his dessert very much.

      I have to admit, for years I have been having lunch at the same places everyday. I am a creature of habit, and haven’t done much changing in my usual restaurants. I came to Candleberry’s on the advice of a friend who told me how good it was. They were right and I will be back often. Even though I have visited other tearooms in the area, I didn’t realize how wonderful the atmosphere of a true tearoom could be. There is a difference.

      I am a member of the Kentucky National Guard. I had heard a few of the other soldiers talk about a good place to eat (your place), but I had not tried it until a few days ago. Really great food and such a relaxing place to sit down at lunchtime. I also appreciate one of your waiters saying, “We appreciate your service to our country”. I don’t get that very often. I could tell he meant it! I was told about your peanut butter pie, which you did not have the day I came (I understand your desserts change daily), but if it is as good as the “paradise pie” that I did have, I am sure I will enjoy it. I will be back and will tell others about Candleberry.

      My wife and I stopped by your gift shop to purchase Candleberry Candles. We have heard from friends that those candles are the best around. While we were browsing the candles, we noticed that there was a restaurant attached and we were planning to stop somewhere for lunch after our shopping. We dropped into your restaurant for lunch. My wife loved the atmosphere. I loved the menu! What a pleasant place for lunch. The Kentucky Hot Brown is excellent! I told the gentleman at the gift shop counter that we enjoyed our meal a lot, and he asked me to drop you a comment here. We didn’t take time for dessert, but as we were leaving we heard two ladies in the parking lot talking about a pie they had just eaten. They were talking about how wonderfully rich it was. Sounded delicious. I told my wife that we should come back very soon so that I could try one of your pies. We will be back very soon!

      Candleberry’s Tearoom is everything a tearoom should be! I have visited a lot of so called “tearooms”, that were nothing more than a mediocere café or diner, one especially in this same town. But Candleberry’s Tearoom knows how to provide that tearoom feel and atmosphere. We got the best of both worlds, the café style menu and the tearoom atmosphere and service. I just simply love the quaint and cozy atmosphere. Elegant dishes, wonderfully delightful food. Service is very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend a visit, you won't be disappointed!

      A friend introduced me to tearooms a few years ago, and I've visited various tearooms every few weeks ever since. I've found that it's the perfect place for tea, lunch, dessert and meeting up with friends. The prices are very reasonable, the selection is one of the best I have every found – tea and food. The young lady that runs the place is a terrific cook and makes the best pies around. I will be back to Candleberry Tearoom often. I just wish I lived close enough to make a weekly visit.

      Iam a man, a big man. Honestly, I didn’t think I would find something satisfying to eat in a “tearoom”. My wife kept wanting me to try it with her, but I hesitated for months. I finally gave in, you know you do need to keep the little lady happy. To my utter amazement, I enjoyed the food and even the atmosphere. It didn’t even bother me to eat on a pretty lace tablecloth. Once my meal got to the table that was all I saw. The food is filling and absolutely wonderful. I ordered the Reuben Sandwich, soup and potato salad. This has to be the best Reuben around. If you guys haven't been there then get going and see for yourself that I am right and I tell it like it is. Come on...I'm a guy writing on this site.. I was so pleased that I just have to tell everyone and when the Owner (a guy also) asked us to leave a comment, I told my wife that I would do it. I will be back to try the Hot Brown, the Turkey BLT, and a number of other things I saw on the menu. Oh and, one more thing, the desserts at this place are real man-pleasers!!

      My husband and I used to live in Frankfort and came often to enjoy lunch at Candelberry's. Now we live an hour away but still come as often as we can. It's worth the trip! The owners and their staff are genuinely friendly and provide thoughtful service. The food is very good -- be sure to save room for those terrific desserts. And if the men out there think tea rooms are just for ladies, think again. Candleberry's offers a wide variety of hearty sandwiches. Their Kentucky Hot Brown is simply the best! Another bonus is that you can purchase tins of loose tea to take home to enjoy later. They have LOTS of varieties available.

      This tearoom is a great place for lunch! The dining room is quaint and well decorated. One unique touch is that you eat and drink out of mis-matched dishes. It may sound disorganized, but it is actually charming and fun to compare your dishes with with varied beautiful floral patterns. The presentation of the food on these dishes is very attractive and appetizing. The food here is excellent, but the ambiance is the main attraction for me. One of the many standouts is the varied of homemade desserts. Every time I go, there are new ones to try. I have yet to get a dessert that wasn’t simply wonderful. The coconut pie is my favorite, but there are others that are a must try. The owners and their staff are friendly and professional. I recommend this place unconditionally.

I was expecting a tour of the State Capitol or something like that. However, we ventured a little out of town and found a nice tea shop. I was so very pleased, it was wonderful, the people were so friendly and the food was way more than I can describe. I have never been so satisfied with a lunch in my life. I see why my sister takes all her special quests to this place. What a wonderful retreat! Thank you for a great time! Every time I visit my sister, I know where I will want to go for lunch.

      My daughter & I had lunch at this charming spot last Friday. Wonderful experience! We enjoyed a pot of Apricot tea, a fabulous meal called a Candleberry Sampler which is a piece of their quiche, a cup of tomato soup and a homemade muffin. But the real show stopper for me was the coconut merrigue pie! It was the best pie I've ever had. I will look forward to returning on my next visit to Frankfort. I also love the gift shop. We spent about an hour in the gift shop following our meal.

      I have been to many tea rooms. This is one of my favorites. The food was great, the tea was wonderful, and the service was like none other! Lunch is served in a café style. But the atmosphere and tea service is definitely like a quality tea house. There is a good selection of loose leaf teas to choose from. My group tried two different kinds. There is a good selection of desserts to choose from. I met the Owner. She is a young lady, but her cooking shows a lot of experience.

      Tearoom response:

      My group visited your tearoom about a month ago for a High Tea. We had such a fantastic time. The tier trays were wonderful. The loose leaf tea selection was great. I noticed that you also have a lunch menu different from the high teas, so I came back for a regular lunch. I was pleasantly surprised to see that you had a new menu from what I saw on my visit and that it had a lot of things to choose from. The lunch was as good as the high tea. I will visit as often as I can.

      Tearoom response:

      Hello Millie. Thank you very much for your comments. It is great that you got to come back for a second visit and to experience our new menu. We just launched this new menu on July 1. call the day before your next visit and I will make sure I have one of our cakes available. Smile.

      Hello to all of your staff at Candleberry! I visited your fine establishment this week (on Thursday) with a group of 5th graders from Livermore Elementary in McLean County. Most all of us experienced a KY Hot Brown for the first time while dining with you that day. We were all SO impressed! Your staff members greeted us warmly at the door, and the service could not be beat. We were treated like family and felt at home. The food was outstanding. It's a tough sell to convince 5th graders to try something new, but our kids had such a great time and really loved the food. They are still talking about the pie (imagine that! ha ha!). What an experience! We would love to bring students every year and make it a tradition. All of the adults on our trip remarked that it was such a blessing to be able to sit down and have a nice meal and be treated with such kind, spiritual hospitality. Hats off to you! We very humbly thank you for the one-of-a-kind moment our kids and us could spend with you.

      Tearoom response:

      Scott... your group of fifth graders were the most well behaved group! They were all very mannerly and graceful. We are so happy their first experience with a Kentucky Hot Brown happened at our place. We pride ourselves on the taste of our hot brown. We would love for your school to make this an annual trip!

ALSO, the gift shop is full of unique and beautiful items. What a treasure this place is.
