      I found this lovely place and drove down from Tampa. It was wonderful. The owner came out of the kitchen and wished us a Happy Anniversary!! My husband found me a violet teapot in the gift shop. We will go back during the holidays. I have recommended this place to all my friends.

      This is my heaven on Earth!!! I am a regular here any chance I get!! Not only is it the most fabulous tea, but the service is ALWAYS impeccable! Not to mention the food! I can't get enough of the Wisteria House Salad and Mac and Cheese! By a landslide..my favorite place to go in Fort Myers! Good excuse to dress up and enjoy some delicious tea. No tea room has yet to compare :)

      I use TeaMap to locate tea rooms when we stay in Florida and the reviews always make a difference when deciding to visit one. Wisteria Tea Room has a cozy ambience with friendly staff and a varied menu to choose from. I had the afternoon tea curate which was delicious and just the right amount of food while my friend ordered a sandwich which she said was very good. This is the first tea room I've been at that will allow patrons to choose another blend of tea to try by signalling a desire with the teapot lid tipped. The shopping area had lots of tea themed items to choose from and I particularly liked the miniature teapot or teacup with their Wisteria Tea room name on to buy as a souvenir of the experience. I am a tea blogger and will enjoy posting about this tea room.

      I have been here twice and on both occasions every detail and request b was met. I ordered a sandwich and had dessert which was like banana heaven. I have recommendation your tea room to friends an snow birds. I plan return with good friend who's done so many favors since I had been sick for 4 months. Without her I don't want to think about what might have happened. She is a rarity in society, but I have always been in career where I helped others.

      I was visiting my Mom from Ohio and I took her and my husband to this teahouse as part of our Anniversary celebration. We were all delighted! The staff was extremely friendly and offered great service. The food was plentiful and unique and delicious. There was bottomless pots and many choices of teas. The gift shop was fun to look in. I run a teahouse in Ohio so this was a nice treat for me to get to go somewhere else. I am so happy I chose the Wisteria.

      My friend went to the Wisteria Tea room in Fort Myers for a luncheon today with a group of woman. During the lunch one of the ladies by accident knocked over a creamer it hit the floor and shattered, when the patron went to pay her bill the owner approached her and advised her that she would be charging her $25.00 for the creamer. I am sure each person reading this has had a mishap in a public eatery and have never been charged for the dishware. I am also sure I will never set foot in that place ever again

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! Two years ago my mom and I decided to stop and see what this little place was all about for my birthday.It was the best birthday ever! Now we find any reason und we can to visit the magical Wisteria. The food is divine, the teas are served in a limitless pot with seemingly limitless selections of superb teas,and the atmosphere is full of love and friendship. I live in Miami now but I am looking forward to a trip back home this next week to have tea with my mom and to introduce my step daughter to all the joy that is found here. Wisteria is truly a Florida treasure!

      Today, 1/14/14, my sister, mom, and grandma visited Wisteria tearoom. We have been to over 20 tearooms in Pennsylvania and Maryland over the last 8 years. The Wisteria tearoom is one of the best. The tea variety is exceptional. We sampled 4 different teas while enjoying the 3-tiered plates of artichoke quiche, almond chicken salad, cucumber sandwich, cheese spread sandwich, cranberry scones with cream, strawberries, chocolate lava cake, chocolate cheesecake and creme brûlée desserts. We enjoyed the professionalism and cheerfulness of our server, Elizabeth. The gift shop is full of unique tea themed goodies. Of course, Henrietta the chicken, greeted us on our welcome in the parking lot.

      My wife and I had a wonderful time again the “Wisteria Tea Room and Cafe”. Every time we visit is outstanding. The staff are excellent. The service excellent. When you have a passion for something, you pour your heart into it. That is exactly what owners Bobbie and Phil have done. My wife and I have visited many tea rooms during our travels, and Wisteria is tops. The menu selection is excellent. I love the more hardy selections that accommodate the more robust eaters like myself...”Phil’s idea”. The tea selections is beyond compare. My wife’s favorite...”The Royal Tea”. Also the, Raspberry-Jalapeno jam from the gift shop is awesome on a turkey panini or even a peanut butter sandwich. I know it sounds weird, but it is really good. To all the guys out there. Give your sweetheart a real treat and take her to the “Wisteria Tea Room and Cafe”. After all, she follows you to the sports bars and chicken wing places all the time. Ladies, feel free to show this post to the man in your life. Steve Carlsen

      Enough wonderful things cannot be said about The Wisteria Tea Room in Fort Myers, FL! The friendly staff and excellent service are beyond comparison. I took a friend to the tea room for lunch and her family is from Wales. As a young girl, she was accustomed to having tea and scones daily. She has been to tea rooms all around the U.S. also. She said The Wisteria Tea Room was the finest she had been to! The food was so good, the variety of tea was excellent, and the service and ambience was so refreshing. It is a wonderful place for a girl's day out. And, if you are just having high tea, you will never leave there hungry! The assortment of menu items will satisfy anyone. I just can't say enough about this tea room, their staff and this food. Oh, and the gift shop has such unique gifts and cards. I tell everyone that visits here about it or take them myself. I am so thankful to have found this jewel in my hometown of Fort Myers.

      I found this shop in a Google search. It was Easter weekend and they were very busy nevertheless my friend and I were seated within 15 minutes, enjoying a pot of Assam tea. We chose the Royal tea, a excellent assortment of the shops cullinary talents. Portions are ample, the various menu items offer something for everyone. The gift shop is filled with unique gifts and tea things. This is a must stop when visiting Fort Myers

      This was my second time dining at the Wisteria Tea Room, and it was for a special event..my bridal shower! What a wonderful place for a shower, the location is beautiful, and Bobbie, the owner and her staff go above and beyond with the food, teas, and service. It was a very special day, and my guests thoroughly enjoyed it. I would have appreciated being able to have more than just two hours to mingle with our 25 guests, I think one more would have been perfect! I look forward to returning for years to come, and cherishing the memory of our special afternoon!

      On Thursday, March 21st, 2013, I brought four friends to the Wisteria Tea Room and Cafe for tea and lunch. I can't begin to tell you how much fun we ALL had! Darlene was so wonderful to us, making some suggestions and bringing us wonderful teas! Our lunches were varied, and so very delicious. We had a late tea time, and when we were finished, Bobbie joined us for a few minutes to hear our wonderful praises of lunch AND teas!! Four of us will leave Florida soon to head back up North. We WILL make reservations at Wisteria again next January, the first day that the five of us are all available again. We are thrilled that such a wonderfu place is available to people here in Ft. Myers. I will spread the word to my other friends who come South for the winter months. Keep up the good work! It is all worth it!!!! Carol Adams

      I just returned from having the Afternoon Tea and had to give them the props they deserved. This charming old florida bungalow has been transformed into a tea house and café that serves not only High Tea but soups, salads and sandwiches. Everyone who works here is very nice and extremely helpful. You never feel rushed and they go that extra mile to make sure your visit as pleasant as possible. I recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxing meal in a quaint and spotlessly clean atmosphere. I'm so happy I live down here and will add this to my favorites not only for myself but to bring visitors to.

      My friend had never experienced an afternoon tea before and I told her I couldn't promise her what I usually have in London but she'd still be happy. I was wrong. Wisteria is an incredible find and rivals some of the best tearoom experiences I've had in London and elsewhere. Everything was wonderful. I only wish I was a local or I'd be there all the time.

      Oh my!! This tea room is one of the best I have ever visited! That says a lot considering that I have had high tea experiences at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando and New York City; the Willard-Intercontinental in DC (my favorite); and other incredible tea rooms throughout Florida and the United States. Upon entering the Wisteria Tea Room my family and I were greeted with the warmest hospitality. Bobby was beyond gracious and welcoming! Our server was Darlene who went out of her way to make us comfortable and looked after. I have never been in a tea room where a pot of tea costs $2.95 and is endless! As many teas and flavors as one chooses to have is available upon request. The lunch was delightful and the scones were the best I have ever had in any restaurant!! My second favorite place for scones was in DC at a fancy hotel. Hopefully, I am not a tea snob, I just love the experience and delight of sitting down and having fellowship over a cup of tea. The Wisteria Tea Room now ranks in my top favorites and I can say with all sincerity that this tea room overflows with the gift of hospitality and grace! Thank you Bobby and Darlene!! I will be back!

      My daughter's wedding attendants and myself hosted her bridal shower on 9/28/12 at The Wisteria. I have been for lunch before so knew the wonderful experience I was in for. However, my daughter requested a 'tea luncheon' for her shower so didn't really know what to expect. She told me it was the most beautiful venue and so-o-o surpassed her expectations, she could not have been happier. It fulfilled the dreams of a bride to be! I live in downtown Ft. Myers and feel especially lucky that I can both enjoy and support a local business often. It's refreshing to have a lovely tea room owned and operated by a loving family. The Afternoon Tea, 3-tiered yummies both savory and sweet, was perfect for the occasion, the tea was endlessly perfect, and all 20 of the '30-something' guests were experiencing a rare taste of years gone by. How impressed everyone was! Bobbie, Darleen and Elizabeth, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my daughter's dream come true! I told you yesterday on a score of 1-10, I give you 15!

      I have a special attachment to the Wisteria. My husband and I purchased that house when we were first married. I went in last week and was truly in awe of how lovely it is. Bobbie is an exceptional host and Darleen attended to our every need with a smile. We feasted on the Royal Tea. Food is amazing. So looking forward to hosting my daughter's bridal shower there! Thank you Bobbie for the warm welcome.

      Charming, delightful, delicious! I recently chose the Tea Room to host my daughter's bridal shower. Bobbie and her amazing staff were warm and welcoming to our guests and made this special occasion so very memorable. We were comfortably accommodated in the delightful atmosphere of the Tea Room, from the gleaming hard wood floors to the elegantly dressed tables. All the ladies enjoyed a plethora of savory teas, not only can you sample as many teas as you would like but the pots are bottomless as well. The Afternoon Tea trays offered a delectable variety of homemade, melt in your mouth delicacies, the scones and Devonshire cream are outstanding! My family and friends will surely be returning often to enjoy Bobbie's gracious Southern hospitality!

      I was recently vacationing down in Ft. Myers and had a relative take me to the tea room…..what a true delight it was! I enjoyed it so much that I went back another time while on vacation because I could not get enough! The atmosphere is relaxing, cozy and welcoming while the tea and food really add to the overall experience. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and enjoyable to interact with. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to enjoy great tea, a pleasant atmosphere and wonderful service to check out this tea room! It’s the best I have ever been too!

      I have visited a number of Tea Rooms in Fl and was delightfully surprised by this one. The ambiance, the decor. the food, the teas (Spiced Mexican Chocolate & Vanilla Chai) were wonderful. If I hadn't eaten so much I could have tasted more teas because there is such a wide selection. This is all topped off by the gracious owners and staff that make you feel like family. I can't wait to go back.

      What a treasure. Not just for the food, which was awesome both in taste and presentation, but for the wonderful atmosphere. From the minute you walk in the door you are being treated as though you are a treasured guest instead of just a paying customer. Keep up the good work. I drove from St. Petersburg to meet some friends from Ft. Lauderdale. Will definately do it again. Already to planning to take more friends.

      Not enough words to describe how wonderful the Wisteria Tea room is. Had a girlfriends lunch there it was 4 of us, we ordered off of the lunch menu it was all wonderful. We meet Bobbie (the owner) we felt as though we were in her home the food was awesome. Each one of us order something different so we could all sample. It truly was great highly recomend and i have been to many other tea houses. We are already planning our next get together

      

      Went here the first time a few days after Mother's Day to celebrate with my mom. I've been to several tea rooms, including some owned by British transplants and have found this to be the best I've been to for all around service and food. I called to make a reservation as we were doing the Royal tea and although they took my reservation, was pleasantly surprised to find they are already ready for full teas. I've never been to a tea room that accomodates that without reservation. I can find any complaints at all. The place is renovated very nicely and VERY clean. Looks more like you are in someone's beatiful home than a restaurant. Owner introduced herself and was always available and present. Our server was knoweldgeable and super nice/friendly. Wait time was perfect for everything. No rushing, as you would hope for for a leisurely tea but not forgotten about or left waiting/wanting for anything. The location is close to a local business district and I have a feeling that if you were popping in for a quick lunch (quiche, salad) the service would be very efficient for that too. For tea I had jasmine green, which I get every time I'm at a tea room and it was very good. My mom had a mango rose mix and said it was the best tea she has ever had in her life and is in fact still talking about it. It came with raw sugar, which was nice-I think I'd like cutesy sugar cubes as well just because I'm such a traditionalist with tea. Food was scrumptious. EVERYTHING-and I mean everything is homemade, right down to sandwich bread and salad dressings. The royal tea came with a salad or soup. I got the salad which was one of the best I've had at a lunch-with soft cheese and pecans dried cranberries and the creamy cilantro dressing was YUMMMMMY! My mom had a tortilla soup that she really enjoyed. Then they came out with the tiered tea tray which was beautifully arranged. I like savory tea treats best and this was by far their speciality. Other tea rooms I've tasted the old run of the mill cumcumber sandwiches or deviled ham which generally dissapoints. Not at Wisteria. Their was a generous wedge of warm artichoke spinach quiche which was the best I'd ever had with huge pieces of artichoke in it. We also had YUMMY version of cucumber sandwich on homemade star shaped bread with boursin cheese and these awesome crostini type prociutto & brie sandwiches and little phyllo cups filled with chicken salad. SO good! The tidbits are teensy and at first glance don't look like too much but my gosh we are eaters and could barely finish our tray. For sweets we had creme brulee pots, toffee brownies, key lime pies, and then a full size scone each with devonshire cream and jam. I read somewhere that you have to ask for the jam (I guess they don't think you need it b/c the scones are sweet) but I don't think a tea scone is complete unless it has the jam and cream all dalloped on top. We had a lemon blueberry scone that day which was perfect and it was the BEST Devonshire cream I've ever had. My mom and I were actually just sneaking spoonsfuls (and dipping fresh strawberries too) because it was just that good. All in all-I was VERY impressed. The owner(s) obviously really care and enjoy what they do and do it very well. I'm so going back to try the savory tea next. Thank you for a lovely experience for my mom. It was a surprise and my dad emailed me later that night special, just to tell me how much she loved her gift.

      Delightful! When we first walked up, I knew this would be wonderful. The first thing you see is a gigantic wisteria tree in the front yard as well as a variety of well-tended tropical plants. The house is a darling cottage that has been creatively restored and remodeled inside with beautiful hardwood floors and a lovely sideboard. Lace tablecloths and an eclectic mix of china cups and saucers complete the charming decor. Bobbie is a friendly and attentive hostess and the serving staff is full of information about the tea and food menus...and enthusiastically share the info. The food is fabulous. Every morsel is homemade and freshly made each day. It is difficult to say which is more delicious...the quiche or the scones. Happily, you do not need to choose...you can have both. I have to drive from south Lee County but it is definitely worth the trip! I'll be back!

      Sought out Wisteria Tea Room after having been recommended from another site. From the moment we were greeted until the time we left, we were treated warmly and the knowledgeable staff guided our selection with gracious hospitality. Food was wonderful with sandwich offerings for men. We only were in the area for a month, but went to Wisteria three times and wished we had time for one more visit. The Afternoon Tea was a pure delight from the tea sandwiches to the scones with Devonshire cream and the scrumptious desserts. Absolutely our favorite. We will definitely return whenever we are in the area and look forward to seeing the staff and owners again.Wonderful example of what a tea room should be!

      This tea room experience was such fun! My husband and I have enjoyed having high tea all over the world and this tea room is second only to the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong. We found this quaint old house that has been refurbished into several bright and sunny rooms. The quality of the tea and the flavor choices was excellent. The food was marvelous! The light artichoke and spinach quiche with white cheddar-perfect. The scones were light as a feather. And the creme brulee cup was delightful. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this experience. Both owners made a point of welcoming us and expressing an interest in whether we enjoyed everything. As retired restaurant people, we appreciate all of the extra effort put forth by these owners to make this afternoon treat so special. This is definately a keeper and we will be back.

      Tearoom response:

      Barbara, It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family. We were a little nervous when we knew of your restaurant background but were so happy that you enjoyed our food and establishment. I hope you will join us again and try some of our other food offerings.

      Soup had fat floating on the top, Devonshire cream was not Devonshire cream, very misleading, no Strawberry Jam offered with cream tea. Would not go again, very disapointing.

      Tearoom response:

      Paul I am so sorry that you were disappointed with your experience. We tried something new with the soup but realized it did not meet up to our expectations so I changed the soup later that afternoon when I saw it. We do serve jam if requested but because we have flavored scones most do not request it. The Devonshire cream is my southern version so I am sorry you did not care for it. We work very hard to have quality food and a warm environment for our guests to enjoy, as you can see by our other review. We regret that you were disappointed. I hope you will give us another chance to serve you..

      The food served for the Royal Tea is some of the finest tea room food I have had and I go to Tea Rooms as often as possible. The service is friendly,fun,knowledgable,and relaxed. Men are welcomed with a menu that is less fussy than the formal teas but just as good and in fact several men were present. This was a great experience and I will return and recommed this Tea Romm often.

      Tearoom response:

      Dear Pat:<BR> I am so grateful that you added an encouragement to men to join us. We love having them enjoy our food and I purposely made the menu gentleman friendly. We hope to see you again soon.

      Saturday was the first time I visited the Wisteria Tea Room. What a delightful time I had. I thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas Tea and can't wait to go back. Food was delicious; but, save room for dessert. Bobbie Schwartz and her family made you feel welcome from the minute you walked through the door. Haven't stopped talking about my wonderful experience since Saturday. Thank you Bobbie and all of the fine staff. See you soon.

      I went to the Wisteria Tea Room for their Christmas tea on Saturday. It was wonderful in every way. It was my first time at the tearoom but it certainly won't be my last. Bobbie and her daughter are the most wonderful hosts -- and cooks! Everyone there was warm and welcoming and the food was delicious. And the teas! What a variety and every one we tried was great.

      I have visited Wisteria Tea Room on numerous occasions for various functions. I was lucky enough to be there for the grand opening, spent a wonderful time with co-workers, hosted my daughter's bridal luncheon, and High Tea was delish. Bobbie Schwartz and her family are wonderful hosts and make you feel so special each time you go. The food is incredible and filling Can't wait to go back again - whatever the occasion.

      I wasn't excited about going to a tea room for lunch, because I'm a man, but I found the 'tea room experience' to be quite enjoyable and pleasant. After being there for a lunch (which was great) and having a 'spot of tea' and talking with my fellow men at the table, I rated the tea room as a 5 for customer service and a joyful attitude that welcomed everyone.

      A family visit brought me to Ft Myers, the Wisteria made me want to stay, we loved it. I'll list just a few of the offering's that I feel are outstanding. Strawberry/Kiwi tea colorful and delicious. The chicken and egg salad plate (the best egg salad I have ever had) the cilantro dressing was tasty. My daughter had the mac and cheese and side salad it was so good she would only give me one taste. The soups we had were the chicken and wild rice and the squash corn chowder (wish I got a quart to go). We were made to feel welcome by staff and the owners Bobbie and Phil. Although we were quite satisfied by the lunch my daughter insisted on deserts we had the chocolate cake and cream brule, I dont want to keep repeating myself but it was the best I have ever had. I highly recomend the Wisteria Tes Room and look foward to many more visits.

      Last week, one of my wonderful employees took me to Wisteria for Boss's Day. That was my second visit to the Tea Room and I left just as, if not happier than I did when we went there the first time for a 'Royal Tea' Birthday Celebration. Bobbie is just the most wonderful hostess ever & her staff is delightful. I honestly feel that I just arrived at my best friends house and she's rolled out the red carpet. Just today I took my friend & co-worker to Wisteria for her Birthday and left there feeling like we are part of the family. For Bobbi to remember me just filled my heart with joy. I will continue to bring more of my friends to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, friendlyness and delicious food offered at the Wisteria Tea Room & Cafe. Ps. Wait until you hear them sing Happy Birthday to you..... Go check them out, you will not regret it.

      Thanks so much for the lovely time we had at the wedding shower. It is obvious all the time, love, care and personal touches that go into everything you and your family and staff do there. Everything from the peaceful atmosphere and soft music to the homegrown, hand picked, chives in the breakfast casserole make the tea room a very special place. I honestly have never drank tea, because of the 'bitter' taste. I was very surprised to see a tea list, that looked like a wine list - I had no idea there were so many flavors, blends and purposes for tea. I was able to try several kinds by visiting the other tables in our group. I actually liked most of them! You may have a made a tea drinker out of me! Of course, I'll have to buy yours. :)

      I have now been to Wisteria three times, each a unique experience! I have dined in with a friend, attended a group brunch, and ordered take-out! And I have not been disappointed! The atmosphere is so homey and welcoming. It's like visiting old friends. Each meal I have tried has been sheer delight!

      Loved our experience here at this tea room.. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Decor was very charming and well thought out! The house that was remodeled to make it a tea room was absolutely beautiful! So much attention to detail! Food was excellent. My mom and I ordered the Royal tea and there was plenty of food for both of us. The salad with Creamy peppercorn salad dressing was tantalizing. The savory pecan scones with Devenshire cream were one of a kind. By far the most delectable sweet scone I have ever eaten. Cream cheese tarts were bursting with flavor! My two tween age daughters were with us as well and their child's plate was PERFECT for their pallet. (Not quite ready to appreciate the adult menu yet). Again the perfect portions for their appetite.

      On our visit we met Ms. Bobbie (owner) and Darlene (server). They were both very attentive and looked like they enjoyed their job. They made us feel like we were visiting their home. The Tuscan soup was fantastic. When I return, I will indeed have that soup again! Great central location to meet friends.

      found this tea room the other day, we've been looking for one in the area. Spent the first part of the visit enjoying the company of the owner Bobby and waitress Darlene. Both wonderful people. It's a great little place with frilly cups but if you're a guy like me who wants a more substancial cup they will certainley oblidge and give you a mug. My wife prefered something more flowery. The tea was kept warm with tea candles which is a must for a relaxing tea outing. My wife had the Mac and Cheese and I had the Meatloaf sandwich. Excellent choices. I would recommend anyone who enjoys a relaxing cup of tea in a friendly atmosphere with great food to put this place on your list..

      I went to Wisteria Tea Room for lunch today and had a fabulous time. I had my favorite sandwich the Ruben with the soup of the day. I also enjoyed the Vanilla Chai tea which is exceptional. There are lots of teas to choose from but that is one of my favorites. I enjoyed the tea so much, I purchased some of the loose tea to make and enjoy at home. The food was exceptional and the staff amazing, can't wait for my next visit.

Not only was the food amazing, but the staff which is mostly family made the experience wonderful. Kind and helpful service, delicious home cooked food and a wonderful atmosphere. All the guests were amazed at how quaint and adorable the tea room was and of course they raved about the food. I highly recommend the tea room and will continue to spread the word.

The menu has something for everyone's taste. The atmosphere is so enjoyable with something different in every room. The staff's customer service level is set very high,as they serve with knowledge and grace. I will be looking forward to my next visit just for the daily scones alone!

The staff couldn't have been more cheerful and attentive, with special attention to the smallest of details. The food was prepared not only to please the appetite, but presentation was so welcoming. A place for all ladies, and men would score big points in taking their moms, wife, and daughters as well! You won't be disappointed.
