We offer informal tea service and a full luncheon cafe style menu. All of our foods are made fresh on the premises and you will frequently arrive for tea and experience the aroma of fresh scones, quiche or desserts baking in the oven, or simmering soups on the burner. Whether you have a party of two or twenty-two, we are able to accomodate you. Reservations are recommended, as we host many larger groups during the week and it's always possible that we are sold out if such a group is visiting. There are a variety of tea related gift items as well as gift certificates available for purchase. Located in Jacksonville, Maryland we are conveniently accessible from I-695 or I-83. We are very kid-friendly and invite you to inquire about children's birthday parties.

      My daughter and granddaughter joined me for Tea today, and what a wonderful Tea it was. The food was absolutely scrumptious!!!!! We were served cranberry/walnut scones - these were one of the best scones I have ever eaten. I love how they are round instead of triangle in shape, this way they are slightly crispy on the outside and moist on the inside...no dried up scones here!!!! And, the food is yummy! You can't go wrong here on any lunch selection you make...

      What a wonderful tea experience! My friend and I enjoyed the Casual Comfort Tea. Our server was so patient and helpful in our tea selection. The list covers all tastes. We tried something different, then switched to our usual tea with the second pot (steeped perfectly!). My only suggestion regarding the tea menu is to include a short description of each tea to aid selection. A freshly baked scone arrived with clotted cream & lemon curd (delicious). Our next course was half of any sandwich on the menu. My friend and I both chose the chicken salad. It was absolutely perfect! It was served with a small portion of pasta salad, which was light and tasty. The third course was a cup of soup. We chose chicken and rice, but cream of tomato was also available. Again, very very good! Last course was our choice of desserts from the menu. We opted for the hot fudge sundae in a teacup. Very cute, and just the right size. This Casual Comfort Tea is a little different from an Afternoon Tea, but it works because you can make your course selection from the menu. The atmosphere in the tearoom was delightful, and the quality of food is top notch. I can't wait to visit again.

      My husband and I took my mother to The Casual Cup when she came to visit. We all had a delightful experience. The food (shrimp salad, quiche, soup, scones) was delicious, as was the tea. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back and will recommend this tea room to our friends.

      I hosted a bridal shower for my daughter at The Casual Cup and could not have imagined a more perfect day. From my very first phone call, Wendy was extremely helpful, making suggestions for many details I had not even thought of. The day of the shower was wonderful. The homemade soup, scones, mini sandwiches and desserts were delicious-no one went home hungry! The service was outstanding and the ambience perfect. I highly recommend The Casual Cup, not only for a shower, but any time you are looking for a special, relaxing dining experience

      We had my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower at the Casual Cup. What a wonderful afternoon! All of the guests really enjoyed it. Wendy did an outstanding job and was very accomodating with our needs and requests. The shower was on a Sunday, so we had the entire tea room to ourselves. Thanks so much!

      My friends and I had tea for a friend's baby shower. The staff was kind and the tea house atmosphere was very pleasant and the food was tasty. We were disappointed in the quantity of food. After placing our order, we were told they had run out of soup and the same thing happened with sandwiches later in the meal. The actual menu did not match what the website had shown either. Though it was a pleasant time, I don't think we'll be returning.

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for the shortage of food choices when you visited. We prepare our foods based on reservations and allow for unexpected walk in visitors, and even then we sometimes fall short. Our menu is being updated and perhaps we prematurely posted it on the website, but we will have the website menu available here beginning next week.

      Stopped in without reservations over the holidays. The food was amazing, the tea was good and prepared properly. We each has the casual comfort tea. Service was wonderful, ambiance was comforting and I didn't feel rushed. Just to repeat, the food was amazing.

      Thank you for you wonderful feedback. We pride ourselves on our customer service and quality of food. We hope you will join us again sometime! <BR> Wendy Savelle, Owner

      Three friends and I visited The Casual Cup on a Saturday morning. Each of us had the 4 course full tea. We could not have had a better experience. There was a large variety of whole leaf teas to choose from. The owner was extremely knowledgable about the various teas, and the ingredients and preparation of the food, which helped us in making our selection. She took extra care to consider dietary restrictions. The tea, scone, soup and dessert were all excellent. Service was impeccable. I look forward to introducing others to the Casual Cup.

      I love this teahouse!! The food is delicious...absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is delightfully calming and comfortable. The owner goes out of her way to greet guests and see to it that the service is impeccable. It is a must visit...for a quiet time alone with a good book, an afternoon with girlfriends, a bridal shower. I love The Casual Cup!

      My mom and I took my 5 year old daughter for her 5th birthday and everything was great. The service was very friendly and even though they were shorthanded, everything was handled very well. They were very sweet to my daughter and the food was great. We both loved the scones. Planning to go back very soon.

      Two of us stopped in without reservations, and were treated to a really great experience with great tea, excellent food and nice service. It is a very small spot, though, so the next time we will make reservations to be sure to be seated. We will definitely go back again
