Little Apple Pastry Shop, Inc. (5 reviews)
The food and service was polite and helpful, I was running late so unfortunately I only had limited time before the next seating - the fault of traffic not the establishment, of course. The varieties of tea were all bagged standard selection available anywhere in the US. As I am very familiar with mass produced tea, I recognized most and had previously tried many of the teas. I felt that the whole thing was a bit overpriced, the place settings were mainstream and the tables are cramp-ly situated within a small dining area. I was also disappointed with the selection of teas sold in their shops as they were primarily Republic of Tea and the North American varieties of Twinings - nothing I can't find at Whole Foods or Target but significantly marked up. I understand that they are a small business, but it was a bit much. I went as a special occasion for someone's birthday and they enjoyed it and for that I am glad, but I do not think I would dine in again.
Charming, gracious, delicious, a gem in the Virginia countryside. Any tea you may want, hot or iced. All food, including the bread, prepared right there. Traditonal tea food (scones, clotted cream,...) and some non-traditonal, local items (ham biscuits, watermelon rind pickles, ...). We could not have asked for a more enjoyable repite from this hot Virginia day than to be guests of the Little Apple Pastry Shop in Aldie, Virginia. This little shop is a gem that deserves to be on everyone's 'must do' list.

Kay and Margaret are wonderful hostesses, and what an incredible baker Kay is! The food is delicious and there's plenty of it. Service is great -- not too 'hovering' but just enough. This is not meant to be an elegant tea, but rather a tea in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Delightful & delicious!
