      I brought my mom here to this team room last year. We are 'regulars' at The Royal Tea Room, but decided to venture out and try something different. Unfortunately, it was a mistake. While the place itself is very cute and the owner was pleasant, it was uncomfortably warm, the tables were lined with plastic table covers, the food was mediocre and in 1-bite portions and the tea was straight out of a box you can buy at the store. Also, we were the only table in there and it was completly silent - could have used some music. We will not be returning.

      Looks like a cute tea room. My friend and I have tried on several different occasions to get a reservation to no avail. Living over an hour away we are not willing to travel in hopes of being accommodated as a walk-in. Neither e-mail or calling has brought us a response --not a good first impression but we are still interested in some day having tea at the cottage.

      We visited the tea room on Mother’s Day. We had a party of 7 and it was a fabulous time. The food was fantastic a very wide verity of tasty and unusual items. The staff was very friendly! This might just be our new Mother’s Day tradition. Thank You Hyde Park Tea Cottage for making Mother’s Day very special for my mother and the other mothers that were with us. Ya’ll Rock!!

      We had a birthday tea there on 11/13. We were treated to wonderful seasonal treats (pumpkin and apple soup and mini pumpkin muffins) as well as a delicious assortment of sandwiches and desserts. I especially loved the chocolate truffle. Our request for three separate teas was honored cheerfully and guickly. All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing, fun experience.

      I was surprised by this cute tea room. The atmosphere was calm and quiet, each room is painted and decorated a different way and the food was excellent. I usually don't get excited about the food in tea rooms, most of the time it's what you'd expect, the usual sandwiches and sweets. But, at Hyde Park Cottage I had the most amazing Potato Soup (and I don't even like Potato Soup!), and the Broccoli Casserole, Sandwiches, Cakes etc. were also very good. The only thing I didn't like at the Cottage was the fact that the tea pot was removed after she refilled our cups. We had to wait awhile (with empty cups) before she came back in to check on us. I would have liked it better if the pot had stayed at the table and we could have refilled our own cups. Everything else was perfect!

      Attended a bridal shower here last yr. Was a little concerned with the location and the fact that the building was kept locked and you had to be buzzed in. The food was very good and service was excellent. I did feel that the rooms were dark and it was very warm inside . It had to be at least 85 degrees inside and it was cooler outside this March day. It was uncomfortable to eat hot soup and drink hot tea in the overly warm rooms. Would skip this tearoom due to dicey location and overly heated interior.

      This tearoom was a treasure to find. The decor was very cozy. The tea offered that day was very nice and the potato soup we had was very good. There was also a small broccoli casserole and little sandwiches. The scones with cream were tasty and the desserts were just the right amount after all the other food. The service was friendly and our teacup was always full. We'll definitely be returning for a visit.

      I just went to this tea room for the first time and took my elderly neighbor for her birthday. The owner, Pam, and her family were very warm and gracious. They have decorated the cottage so lovely. The food was good and the service excellent. Don't forget to browse in the gift shop section. The items are unique and very, very reasonable;the best I have seen in any tea room anywhere.

      I had my bridal shower here and it was excellent. I am planning on going back again within the next month with my Girl Scout troop.
