      when this place was open it was more than exceptional, now its permanently closed.. I wished that Debbie could have told us that she was closing... just for all those of you who want to attend a nice tea house go to Moffats, its still the same owners just like Debbie here... sorry this place is closed. as of 2012.

      when it was in operation this place was exceptional. My boss Debra owned it, now its stands empty and closed. if anyone of you are interested in making this tea house come alive again, give debbie a call... i miss it, this was so well thought out establishment and i was happy to be a part of this group. I feel sad its closed as debbie got ill and had no choice to close it. I am sad cause I talked so much to family about this place and now she is gone. I wonder if Largo will revamp it to make it into an antique store or make it into a artists gallery.. i hope they do somthing cause this place is one fine lady

      This place is permanently closed. There is a banner out from that states it is for sale or lease and their message now states the same.

      This is my favorite tea room in the area. I hope as the previous post says that it is not closed permanently. If you call them the message states the owner is ill and hopes to reopen soon.

      For the past few weeks this place has been closed. They have a sign out front that just says 'closed' with no date that they will open again. I believe they must be closed permanently.

      EXCELLENT ALL the way around, unlike the other shoppe in St.Pete, where I was tea shopping last week along with my 'girlfriends' to have fun day. We decided to try the other place, not as good as here. Ms. Debi and Ms Denise show gracaiousness and abitlity to give you not only great service but great food as well. The portion size Momma Mia... thats a big Lunch! Thats why they have take home boxes... too much food for one person to eat all for from 7.95 and up. Where can you get a great meal for that price? There teas are to DIE FOR!!! For 19.95 pp you get an array of home made goodies... I guess thats what I love about this place, I know that EVERYTHING IS HAND MADE, why I know this, cause I used to also work in the kithcn here, as a helper when they needed some help over the years. Nothing is store bought except for the napkins and a few soda's. Debi makes everything.. You gotta try the Shepards Pie, and The Cream of Mushroom Soup thats so wonderful... I praise Debi for a fine establishment, she has great help from Eddie and Denise and Renee when she welcomes you with her Famous Girl Scout Cookies for purchase. and When you have time, do write about this place, no one on earth serves the best food in Largo. You go girls!!!

      I have to thank everyone at Cottage Cafe for the wonderful High Tea we had on 9/3. This was a belated birthday gift from my friend and her daughter's first tea. The presentation, variety and quality of the food was amazing as was the tea. I love the surprise of having each course presented separately, it's makes the experience soo much fun!! The service was friendly and I have to again thank you for accomadating my food allergies a rare service to find these days. The decor is vintage, fun, whimsical and adds to the experience. My friend and I have been many places for High Tea including the Vinoy and the Grand Floridian and we both agree this was the best food, service and time we have ever had. Now my friend's daughter understands why we love going to tea. It's a wonderful time to spend relaxing, sharing and laughing while having amazing food!

      My mother and I went to this spot for lunch on a rainy afternoon. The place was very cozy and comfortable. The house decaf tea is wonderful and the food was yummy! I had the quiche and tomato bisque, while my mother got the salad sampler which was very good. We will be returning!

      My husband I decided on this tea room to spend Mother's day with my mother-in-law. It was a great place to sit and relax and she really enjoyed looking at all of the tea pots, hats, etc. I had a yummy slice of quiche that was served with more fresh fruit than I've ever been served. My mother-in-law had curry chicken salad in a canteloupe and she ate ALL of it:-). The place was packed but the food still came out rather quickly. I hope to make this a Mother's day tradition. Thank you!

      Weve been here twice before for tea on mothers day and were pleased however today was very dissapointing. Had reservations and they seated us right away. The tables next to us were both dirty for a 1/2 hour and our tea pot was dirty at our table as well as the dish they put the food on. She didnt tell us what the tea was. The scones were store bought, there was actually a Entenmanns donut cut up and we asked about it but they avoided the question. The food took entirely to long in between courses and the desserts were also store bought and just cut up. Window sill was dirty with dust and dead flies I was sitting right next to. We asked for dishes and silverware and our waitress asked us why we needed it for finger foods. Really? Because its messy and I dont like eating off the table. We had been looking forward to this because we usually enjoy it once a year but unfortunatelty it was a let down to say the least.

      Tearoom response:

      I'm sorry you were so dissapointed in your tea. First I would like to say your scones were not store bought .I spent one whole day baking scones Which I learned to make from a professional baker. The small cupcakes (pink) and the larger chocolate ones had been baked and decorated that morning along with the orange cake. Yes ther was a doughnut on your plate I always like them to be very full and I used them for a filler. All sandwiches were made by me. We always serve our house tea that was blended just for us out of NY. I'm sorry Denise did not explain this to you if you don't like the tea we always bring you something else since we do carry a large variety. I would never take the walkends again I was trying to accomadate our regular customers and it just didn't work. I do hate to turn regular faithful customers away. Fresh fruit is always served along with your scone plate. We hired extra help that never did show which is not unusal in this bussiness, that is why the tables could not get cleaned on time. Sometimes our old plates and cups look like they're dirst and it's just crazing or spots under the clear coating. I hope you will return again,I do hope you give us another chance this was a very rare time as you said we almost always have pleased customers. Thank you Debi

      I took 3 friends there on Sat May 7th in celebration of Mother's Day. VERY disasspointed with service. We had reservations and when I made reservations I was told they would be offering regular menu & when we got there there was limited Mother's Day menu. Lunches came out at different times. Awkward! Was disappointed in the experience. Gentlemen that served us lunch had on a very dirty soiled t-shirt that looked like he was also the dishwasher. I was with several elderly women who are use to quality service. Had chicken curry in cantelope & chicken was tuff. Overall visit - Very poor. They need more staff. I understand it is not fast food but lunch for 4 of us took almost 2 hours. Not a good experience.

      This is a very special Tea Room. I arrived with a reserved party of 24 people to smiling faces and welcoming greetings. The tea was excellent and our waitress DID explain the type of tea that we were being served. She may not have poured the tea into our cups, we were all quite capable of assisting ourselves. All of the Tea goodies were excellent with plenty of scones, sandwiches and desserts. I introduced myself to the chef and complimented her on her wonderful concoctions. The service was good considerating the balancing act of serving not only our group but others who came for their lunch. This is not a fast food hamburger establishment but a refined relaxing, no rush Tea Room. I would recommend this 'Special Little Gem' to everyone. By the way, this was my second time with a large group and the second time was as enjoyable as the first!

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you Vicki we do try and do our best. Our customers are very inportant to us and alomot all become our friends and revist. Tahnk ;yu for your kind words and remember to look for us in Tea Time magazine in May-June issue. Thank you Debi

      Food is good and enough of it, but service is something they need to work on. We were there for a very special tea party that was suppose to take one and a half hours (2 hours top) we where there for a little over three hours. Waiting and waiting between courses, I finally had to go tell them we were ready for the dessert it was taking so long and my guest where having to leave. It would have been nice if they could of poured our first cup of tea and explained what kind it was. Then when they brought in the scones they could have explained a little of what they are. When they brought in the different sandwiches and we asked about them, they where placed in the center of the table and she had no time to tell us about them. They booked to many tea party's at one time (even though the owner told me they would only book one tea party during the lunch hour), she had my group of 10, plus 12 in the green room, and 6 in the small tea room. There was also the every day lunch trade going on with only two lady's to do all the cooking and serving. Some suggestions, when you bring the tea in pour the first cup for your customers, take the time to explain about the different scones you just placed on the table, and the same with the different sandwiches and deserts. Please do not book more than you can handle, I do believe serve is just has important as the food to get your customers to come back.

      Thank you for all your suggestions. Debi

      I first visited the Cottage Cafe with a group of friendly women fr rom Belleaire, Florida. They welcomed me, the snow bird, into their social network. This cottage is a feast for the eyes. something to trigger memories in every corner, it was lovely. I have been back 3 times. Each time I have company from NY, I make it a point to take them to the Cottage Cafe. The women who own it are also delightful.....

      Great food for the price! $20 per person, and you get four courses. Wide variety of tea sandwiches and unique flavor combinations. Nice seating arrangements, and lots to look at inside! They offer their own flavor of tea, which is a blend. Very fruity and delicious! I did not even have to use sugar or cream, the flavor was great all by itself!

      What a wonderful 'tea party'. The food was outstanding and such a variety. The plate of 'kid friendly' sandwiches was unexpected and the 2 8 year old girls just loved it. The attention to details was remarkable and service superior. Everything far surpassed my expectation. I enjoyed every minute of our tea and will enjoy bringing my friends there. And your lunches are just as terrific too!! Thanks Denise and Debi for a wonderful afternoon.

      We just returned from Tea at the Cottage Cafe and it ranks right up there with our fist Tea party in Victoria, British Co. The food was fantastic-we had a hard time figuring out what was best. We had 5 adults and 2 grandkids and we ate and ate and still brought home 2 containers of food. We had our own private room, their brand of tea which all of us agreed was fantastic and a great variety of sandwiches. The cucumber sandwiches were absolutely the best any of us have eaten. They even had a tray of special kid friendly sandwiches- all for $20 a person. We will make this our special occasion cafe. Thank you so much.

      STOP,don't waste your money. They give you empty promises. I ordered a Princess Tea Party for my 6 yr old granddaughter which was never delivered. Three times I spoke to the owner, Debbie, reminding her how special I wanted this to be. The sandwiches they brought out were not edible for children, and I informed the waitress of this. For example, one of the sandwiches was a blueberry bagel with pink cream cheese and roast beef. My grandson who eats everything said how disgusting and unappetizing it looked. So again I encourage you not to go to this restaurant--stay far away.

      Tearoom response:

      Carolyne I'm really sorry you were so unhappy. I offered you a free tea for your family to try and please you.If you read all our reviews you will see We do not have unhappy people. Infact you are the first in almost 6 years not a bad record. You had a princess tea with crowns a craft for the kids boas on your chairs and a festive room. A sandwich was even made that your daughter wanted Come On! Debi

      I recently had my sister's baby shower at Cottage Cafe. They did such a fantastic job. Denise was so organized and warm. The service was friendly and attetive. The value for the money was great. The food was wonderful and there was TONS of it. They added all kinds of special touches and even make teacakes in the shape of baby rattles. I have been to several tearooms and Cottage Cafe is the best. They are wonderful with children and did something special for the little girls present. Top notch...and we are hard to please!!!

      My young daughter and I shared a wonderful afternoon of tea yesterday on a cold day. We were looking for a place to relax and spent some time together for 'our time'. I cannot tell you the warmth that we felt within Cottage Cafe, and it went beyond the temperature. It was the warmth and enjoyment of proprietors and other customers who were there that same day. To walk into a restaurant for the first time and feel like you were a regular was amazing. My daughter and I were pleased and amazed at the selection of scones, breads, petitie fours, and sandwiches. Each time we finished a course, a new surprise was waiting for us. My daughter and I equally enjoyed the decor of Cottage Cafe which had a traditional look and feel with all of the details for tea taken care of. We plan on being back soon (my daughter has asked if we can go again tomorrow). WE also enjoyed their signature tea that was blended for them. Thank you Debi and Denise for a great day. When the temperatures rise, we will be back to look around!

      This was our first time at the Cottage. I want everyone to know, of the three tearooms I have been to in the St. Pete/Tampa area, this one is BY FAR the best. We dressed as Fairies and surprised my mother by taking her for an actual 'High Tea'. There was so much food, we could not eat it all...there were four of us! One of my girlfriends mentioned how much she loved quiche and had recently had a rather disappointing one...She was given a large slice of the Cottage Cafe quiche to try. The staff is amazing. They are knowledgeable, friendly and caring. We will be BACK! Until next time, The 'Tea' Fairies

      Red Hot Cinnamon Sisters had their August Brunch @ Cottage Cafe` of Largo. We all had the Fluffiest Quiche of the day. It was accompanied w/their Signature Salad and their Own Raspberry dressing. The portion of the meal was so large I could not eat it all. It was absolutely delicious. The presentation of the Food looked to be out of an Elits Cooking Magazine. Since we had an Upside Down Red Hatter B Day we all had a glass of Mimosa topped w/a Fresh Strawberry to make a Toast to another year of her Maturity. What a very Tasty Cocktail. The restaurant has a delightful ambiance w/Tea Sets & Vintage Decor all around the numerous rooms. OMG, all the Red & Purple merchandise was so tempting to all of us.

We were there for 3 1/2 hours ....... :) We all had a different choice of Quiche and one was better than the other.Presentation was elegant. We laughed and laughed, played a few games and the owners were so gracious and took the time to take pictures for us. 3 Cameras I want you to know !!!

      Today was the fourth time I have visited this tea room, each time at a different time of day and each time I have had a wonderful experience. Today was the most impressive--high tea. There were 6 of us in attendance in celebration of a young friend's recent graduation. We started with a pot of wonderful tea mixed expressely for the tea room. The scones were served with clotted cream AND lemon curd. Then there were 4 types of delightful sandwiches none of which were run of the mill-(ham and cream cheese on raisin bread, round cucumber, yummy chicken salad on tiny croisant and sweet roast beef with jam. The owner chef says she varies the selection because a lot of people come back often, Desserts were delectable. My favorite, of course was a chocolate one. This tea room has been a hit each time I have visited. Oh I forgot to mention that the decor is keeps visitors busy noticing all the beautiful antiques, tea pots etc. The whole experience is A plus

      My wife suggested that I write under a Mans Point of View. She dragged me out of the house one sunday morning after church and we came here for some of Nicoles Famous Omelets. Well let me tell you how fantastic it was. Light and fluffy Nothing like what my wife makes. Although Linda is a great cook she can not make the omelets like Nicole can. She outweighs herself in what and how she prepares her food. Debi We always thought that she was your daughter but found out otherwise that she is NOT the daughter but that is ok too. We enjoy to come here. I told my wife anytime she wants me to go to see Cottage Cafe to count me in. The food and presentation was delightful and I am a hungry guy. I enjoyed the old Maxwell coffee and it was good too. We over all like the food well worth the money and scenery was like sitting at my Aunt Irenes house with all the pretty laces and florals.

      The relaxed atmosphere of this tea room, with its tasteful eclectic display of antiques, bordello lamps, and soft soothing tablecloths, makes you want to linger and enjoy cup after cup of a fine assortment of teas. Besides the delicacies served at tea this restaurant serves breakfast and lunch. I recently sampled a zucchini quiche served with a fresh salad consisting of mixed greens and fruit which was outstanding. Their signature lunch, Debi's Delectable Chicken Salad, is not only delicious, but the presentation will wow you. Their signature breakfast is for the hearty appetite featuring 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon, 2 sausages, homefries, toast or biscuit and fresh fruit; again the prentation will dazzle you. This cafe, in the heart of Largo, is a popular spot for City Commissioners and staff, School Board Members and of course the local Red Hat Ladies. After you enjoy your tea, take a stroll out back and snoop around the various rooms of antiques. Debi, the proprietor is almost always there and will be happy to show you around and even share a cup of tea with you.
