      I had the most wonderful day at the Front Parlour. Three of us girls had the 5 course tea experience. It was a beautiful setting, relaxing, with wonderful food and we were treated like royalty! We tried three different teas, with the spicy chai being our favorite. The puff pastry with tomato basil cream sauce, bacon and feta cheese was out of this world. I highly recommend this tearoom. Enjoy!

      I am still raving and sighing contendly over the serene Sencha green tea, the over-the-moon spinach salad (could we ever get that recipe for the poppy seed dressing? it's just that good!), the oh so tasty sandwiches perfectly filled with cucumber, or chicken salad to mention just two of the selections presented atop an antique cake plate... I could go on and on.. the peaceful atmosphere, the charming waitresses, right down to the warm washclothes at the end of a heavenly repast and tea house experience.

      This is a treat that I highly recommend to anyone needing a few moments away from the hustle and bustle... just a delight.

      My sister, mother and I stopped in on a whim and were really impressed. I did not expect such a nice experience. The food was great and the tea service wonderful. They have these little candles they put under your teapot to keep it hot.

      The ambience and the hostess-owner are charming.

      This is by far the best tea house I have ever been to. The food is wonderful. The owner Cari is a wonderful host. She makes all the food herself. She has a big variety of teas. The house is beautiful. I only wish I lived closer, I would go all the time.

      I have been to this estableshment a couple of times now and would recomend it to everyone. I know some people from England and from what they tell me, this place meets the expectation to a perfect English Tea experience.

      I visited the above tea rooms on various occasions for lunch, afternoon tea and high-tea. The food is exceptional. The premises are comfortable and inviting and Kerry, the owner, is an excellent hostess. This is the only pace I know that prepares tea in the genuine English manner. I am, myself, from England. I highly recommend this fine establishment.
