      I have had my eye on this place for the last decade since I used to live about a block away from it and never got to visit. I would pass by every day and mean to go in and it just never happened. Roll on a decade later and my friend and I found ourselves out to tea at Abigail's this week and i am suddenly kicking myself for waiting so long. What a delightful treat this place is, such a breath of fresh air. With tea for 2 we started with Pina Colada tea and a green tea for my friend (I forget which), served with little muffin/cake like treats for starters and a very superb Tomato and Basil soup to be going on with. The soup is so good that you won't look at Tomato soup the same, again, it is a perfect blend and light on the basil, you'll certainly like it, even if you aren't a tomato fan. We received a very sizeable salad to follow, with a nice honey mustard dressing for mine and my friend had the vinegrette. This was followed by a very pretty presentation of cut sandwiches of egg, tuna, chicken and cream cheese, with fruits to follow after. Desserts to finish were Strawberry Shortcake and a Tort for my friend. Both were insanely delicious, very pretty and presented well. They were out of the crepes, which I really would like to try in the future, but that strawberry shortcake was just perfect! The entire dining experience was not what I had expected - it was much better! The lady waiting our table was well dressed, very kindly and fun. She was well informed, super-polite and made everything very easy to understand and enjoy without making us feel any less that at home, here. She also encouranged a look upstairs after we had eaten and we found it to be very pretty and time-appropriate and just an all around other-timely experience that just completed the visit. On our way out, we stopped by the gift shop and picked up some pretty earings, though there are plenty of exquisite little tea cups and sets as well as handmade jewellery, some stunning outfits and hats, things for the home - you have to take a good look as there are some fabulous treasures even I think I need to go back for! Over all, what a great experience. I have already decided to go back as soon as possible, and will likely also take my mother in law in future, too, as I think this will be right up her street! If you want to lunch with a friend, like I did, bring your appetite and come hungry! Lots of food, plenty of choice in tea, super atmosphere and wonderful staff make this one of the best couple of hours i've had for a long while and I came out of there totally refreshed and relaxed. Full marks to Abigail's, so, so worth a trip!

      My friends and I enjoyed our trip to Abigail's Tea room. Elegant Victorian setting beautifully decorated for Christmas, our tea stayed wonderfully hot in a lovely teapot surronded by a charming cozy. We chose the Royal High Tea and all shared our tea selections and enjoyed them all. We were encouraged to explore the other rooms and even spent some time shopping at the on site gift shop!

      This tearoom was an excellent experience! We drove an hour to come visit Abigail's Tea Room for The Royal High Tea! It was worth the lil extra splurge! The lady recommended the top favorite teas and we loved them, peach apricot black tea/monk black tea/Lady Hannah herbal tea. The most impressive part of the experience is the attention to detail of the decor. It's very tradition Victorian and takes you back to that era! We were encouraged to wonder around and explore all the rooms. We very much enjoyed that! If you love tearooms, this tearoom is a must to experience!!!

      Drove a hour and a half to visit Abigail's Tea Room yesterday. The drive was absolutely worth it!!! We had four woman in our party and ALL of us were very pleased. So many different types of teas to choose from and you all get your own full size pot that is certainly big enough to share your flavor with everyone at your table. We visit tea rooms as a hobby and this was the first Tear Room where we each got our "0wn" tiered server!!! The food was amazing and so much of it that we al needed boxes to take home our desserts which was great because they have a wonderful gift shop were you can buy your favorite tea (as well as many other great priced items) so we brewed a pot at home later and enjoyed their wonderful desserts!!! We had a member of our party that had a special dietary need and they accommodated us perfectly!! Our servers were friendly and attentive. The decor and charm of the house is stunning!! A great place to visit and make some wonderful memories!!!!! Thank you to the staff at Abigail's for a WONDERFUL time!!!

      My daughters and I have been to Abigail's Tea Room 3 times over the past 4 years. We live 1 hour away and have visited other tea rooms closer to our area, but it is clear that Abigail's is in a league of its own and definitely worth the drive! The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming, and the décor is absolutely lovely. The food is always perfect and every single item we order is always delicious! We have been to Abigail's for both the Royal High Tea and the Lady Carlyle Tea, and each one of us was able to order our own flavor of tea with refills when empty. We love all the different flavors of tea served in lovely tea pots with beautiful tea cozies. Everything about Abigail's is wonderful, including the gift shop. My daughters and I always have such a fantastic experience that they make this my birthday gift every year! Truly Delightful!

      This was our 2nd time here. We went yesterday for the special Downton Abbey High Tea. Was wonderful from the table linens to the menu to the D.A. theme music in the background. The host was so knowledgeable about the series and the era and provided wonderful tales to go along with poster and photo album. Well done! Looking forward to other special event teas. Don't miss a trip here and check out the gift shop. We will be coming back.

      We are regulars here, and just love coming to Abigail's. They have the best tomato basil soup! It is perfectly decorated to be reminiscent of the beautiful Victorian era, which we do enjoy! We have had several events held here and every time, Abigails put on a great time for us, whether we had a small gathering, or even when we had 35 for a recent graduation we had! Well done Abigails, Thank you!

      To begin : the tea choices were adequate and the tea was very hot , well brewed..couldn't have been better. The soup and salad were also a treat,scone was ok, sandwiches were just ordinary without any flair, desserts were delicious. Server was pleasant and helpful, beautiful place.

      

      Visited Abigales Tearoom today for high tea. Ambience is perfectly lovely. Food was far from a culinary experience. Ordinary fillings on white bread unimaginatively cut in fourths. Slices of fresh fruit were so thinly sliced they were transparent. The soup was good. Brownies and cheese cake contributed to 2/3 of the desserts being good. The real letdown was clear plastic glasses used for water. This did not mix with the elegant china service for all the rest of the meal. Somewhat disappointing.

      Yesterday, Saturday, 2/20 was my first experience at Abigail's tea room. A group of us gals decided on this adventure and made hats for the experience. We had a great time and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and of course, many varieties of tea. The gift shop is amazing. So much to look at and buy. The only detriment I have to list is available parking, especially if you are not familiar with the area, but I would not let that stop me from going. A truly wonderful experience and I cannot wait to do it again!

      I have been to Abigail's Tea Room several times (6, I believe). Each time was very pleasant. The Victorian decor makes a nice atmosphere to enjoy your tea and food. I stick with the house blend tea, but family and friends that I have taken along with me enjoyed mint, blueberry, Earl Grey, Chai and peach. They have a very large selection of tea. Something to suit everyone. The food and service is always very good. Wonderful soups and sandwiches. Lovely fresh fruit and desserts. There is also always something fun to find in the gift shop.

      A lovely experience! Took a good friend as a birthday treat and we were both bowled over by the mango black tea and the royal high tea selections of finger sandwiches , sweets and fruit. Elegant Victorian decorations added to the charm and so nice that it was all adults to enjoy them. All the staff was extremely friendly and interesting to talk to. It was worth the drive from Harrisburg and as nice as I had heard it was.

      I was truly looking forward to bringing my adult daughters this week. After reading your comments on children, I decided not to. I understand your position on unruly children, but you went into EXTREME depth as to why children are not invited. Very rude, exaggerated and snobby. We will not be attending tea.

      Going to Abigail's Tea Room over the Christmas holiday has become a tradition for my sister, friends and myself. Dec.19th, 2015 was the third year in a row that we have had the wonderful experience at Abigail's. The decorations are exquisite, the food and tea absolutely delicious, the presentation fabulous, thoughtful service and a really nice gift shop all make for a just perfect afternoon ! We also treat ourselves to the tea room at other times of the year. We highly recommend Abigail's. Thank you to the owner and staff for always making our time there so very pleasurable !

      Had a wonderful time at Abigail's Tea Room in late November 2015. The food was excellent, service was spot on and it was decorated for the holidays so beautifully! I was introduced to their Monk's Blend black tea which is now one of my favorites. I would highly recommend the Elizabethan High Tea!

      

      Abigail's Tea Room is no question the BEST IN THE WORLD !! When you enter you feel like you have been transported to another world, the Victorian world of the 1880's. The decor is perfect for that era, painstakingly thought through down to every little detail. The tea is delicious with a wide assortment of choices ! And the food is fantastic with numerous choices to fit the needs of every palate. The portions are generous satisfying the appetites of men as well as the ladies. Truly a unique experience for couples or groups or special celebrations. And the price is very reasonable for all you are getting. The servers and kitchen help add to the Victorian ambiance with their unsurpassed service. But my personal favorite is the owner, who makes it all work because of her love for people and therefore her desire to give her guests a truly delightful experience which they won't soon forget.

      I am a Berks County native, and was looking for a fun thing to do with a young girl I was babysitting. I made a reservation at Abigail's tea room for lunch, and it was so lovely. I have been to several tea rooms around Pennsylvania, but I have never been to one where you get your own individual tier with sandwiches and dessert. Usually, you share your tier with someone else or the whole table. Fast forward to planning for my 25th birthday party. I wanted something fun, classy, and elegant to celebrate my big day, and I immediately thought of Abigail's Tea Room! They were very easy to work with regarding scheduling, and I think the price was extremely reasonable considering everything you get. The house was stunning, and it was decorated for Christmas! The food was excellent, and I got so many complements on how much fun everyone had. I highly suggest Abigail's the next time you want to have an event or just a fun girl's day out.

      I cannot remember how many times we have visited Abigail's. This time, June 20, 2015, my wife and I brought some new visitors. They thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, the food, and the selection of teas. We now live much closer to Reading, PA. So we expect to visit more frequently. I had the High Tea and decaf Earl Grey tea. The scones, sandwiches, and desserts were superb. The tea was brewed just right. I like mine with a little milk and was provided that as well. Hope to see you soon.

We enjoyed scones and blueberry tea bread. Soup and salad. Five different tea sandwiches and several petite desserts. The ambiance of the three story Victorian home is beautiful as well as the tablescapes. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The gift shop has many tea items and beautiful jewelry and fashion accessories. Highly recommend for a very Victorian Tea experience!

All the rooms were so much fun to wander through and admire the decorations. The food is excellent and offers much variety. I had the ginger peach tea and loved it. But there is a large selection of teas to choose from - blacks, whites, herbals, and greens. And after a leisurely relaxing tea, we wandered through the gift shop.

      Abigail's Tea Room is an experience like no other. The moment you enter their door, you are transported to another time. From their Victorian atmosphere to their tasty teas, and treats a delightful time is promised for all. My first experience at Abigail's was when my daughters treated me to a Mother's Day High Tea. The next time I went with my daughters and sister in-law to celebrate my sister in-law's birthday. Today I went back with two friend's from work for a girl's day out. No matter the occasion Abigail's is the perfect place to celebrate.

      A wonderful early Mother's Day experience for my Mom and Myself!!! Beautiful , elegant rooms that breathe the tranquilty and luxury of less hurried times of the past. The afternoon tea that we ordered was both artistically prepared and delicious. We had a wonderful 'mother ,daughter day' at Abigails, and will definitely return ! That May surrounded the house and the city of Reading with white and pastel blossoms just added to the beauty of the day! Thank you from your German friends!

      Abigail's is favorite destination for a friend and I when we meet for tea. The staff is warm and hospitable, the tea is excellent, with a wide variety of black, green, white, and herbal brews available, along with decaf options. The setting is true Victorian, and the food is delicious, from scones and pastries to quiches and sandwiches and soups (served in teacups) and salads. The best part is that you can sit for hours and visit with your companions, sipping tea and nibbling on the goodies that keep arriving. There's also a very nice gift shop, with items a person might really want to purchase! I highly recommend this spot.

      Tearoom response:

      Nancy..Thank you for the lovely review..And we are always so apperciative when our guest come back again and again...I see you liked our gift shop..Great! We just got some new spring items in stock and a restock on our tea towels with the comical verses.....It should be a welcome spring after this very rough winter...thanks again...Rita

      My family and I have been going to tearooms for many years, and I have found the one I love the most...........'Abigail's Tearoom'. Abigail's has it all. Great variety of teas, and delicious, homemade, always fresh food. The staff is very accommodating knowledgeable , and friendly. The ambience of the three story Victorian home is absolutely wonderful. You feel like you stepped into the 19th Century. Right now, it is decorated for Valentine's Day.......Beautiful red hearts, red, white, and pink flowers abound the house. I didn't mention the 'Gift Shop'. My all time favorite place to buy tea 'stuff', and very beautiful jewelry. Knick-knacks, and very beautiful jewelry.......LOL. I highly recommend this enchanting teahouse. Kudos to Rita, Beverley, and Sue.(and the others. I don't know all their names). Thank you for making us feel like Royalty......

      Tearoom response:

      Joan.. I know you well and daughter Cheryl...We love every time you make a reservation..All the staff says....Hey!

      I went there Feb 7th 2015 and i was very excited to find such a adorable and unique place to be with my friends.Once we got there Customer service began and it was horrible the lady at the gift shop had the worst attitude and was very rude not only to me but to 2 other of my friends.Once we sited at our table the lady taking our order was also rude and very impatient to us even thought we told her it was our first time there. Then lastly the lady coming around to give us our checks got rude with one of my friends when she told her that she did not have Tea which she didn't cause she doesn't like tea the lady pick up her cup and look at it and gave her a face saying out loud ha ! like my friend lie about it.. I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN and neither will my friends and i was there with a group...like a said the place is charming but the service was horrible.. Disappointed !

      Each person has their own large pot of tea, with the pot wrapped in a beautiful tea cozy to keep in wonderfully warm through your meal. The types of tea are too numerous to count! Delicious tea sandwiches and small servings of several desserts come with the High Tea, preceded by a crisp salad and a cup of excellent soup. There are 3 soups to choose from. Victorian setting, decorated charmingly for the holiday season. And to top it off a fabulous gift shop. I wanted to buy one of everything. Great place to find gifts for the difficult to shop for woman on your list.

      Tearoom response:

      It was a unique and most satisfying experience, one which I will participate in again. The decor and detail reflecting the era noted a special effort. The decaf mint tea was delicious. I enjoyed the tea sandwiches, mini desserts, and the lobster bisque. Our server was solicitous to our needs, and very friendly. My friend and I also enjoyed the two hour posted on our reserve card. It was a very relaxing experience. The gift shop revealed many items that appealed to my taste in jewelry, scarves and a attractive sweater that fit perfectly. We were able to park on the lot opposed to off st. parking, and I will be returning with many friends. Thank you, we are very fortunate to have this in our area.

      We had a lovely experience at Abigail's Tea Room. The tea was fantastic. We both had the apricot peach tea and we loved it. The pot came with a cozy so the tea stayed warm. It was a generous pot of tea and not a little stingy pot. We also enjoyed the lovely Victorian decor which set a wonderful atmosphere for our tea. The Victorian decor was more historically authentic at this tea room and not 'cutesy'. I loved it! My daughter and I both loved the soup. We each had a different one. It was wonderful and came out nice and hot. We also really enjoyed the tea sandwiches too. There were some that we had never had before. I particularly like the one with apricot in it. Everything was tasty and served in a beautiful fashion. We were not rush and had plenty of time for conversation. If you don't visit this tea room you are truly missing out on a relaxing afternoon tea experience. We plan to visit again soon!

      This was my first time at Abigails and it was wonderful. The Victorian era was beautiful and you feel as if you are back in time. My friend and I had the Queen Anne Royal High tea. The presentation and food were very good. The tea sandwiches and desserts we had were delicious. There scones are served warm and are scrumptious. There were many teas to choose from and if you wanted an ice tea they had two choices. One was Peach the other Raspberry . The Raspberry was delicious. Went on a Friday afternoon and they were busy but everyone was pleasant. I would recommend anyone to try it at least once.

      Tearoom response:

      My granddaughter and I were transported back into time as we enjoyed the very elegant Royal Tea. One of the things that struck me was some of the little details that makes for a successful tea. For example - the temperature of the tea and soup - Hot! The tea pots were large and sported tea cozies. My first choice of tea, recommended by Sue, was not for me but she cheerfully swapped it out for the French Vanilla which was amazing. We added 2 sugar cubes and a dollop of honey (we asked for that) and it was rich and full-bodied. We loved it. The tea bread and scones were miniature in size, as is usual in a Victorian style tea. The dollops of sweet cream and preserves were also tiny but adequate and artfully presented. The soup was amazing - a creamy potato bacon. After that came a nice-sized fresh and crunchy garden salad that was rich with mixed greens, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and green and yellow peppers. We enjoyed the raspberry vinaigrette. The two-tiered tower came out to us and we were surprised! Raven is 12 years old and she was excited to have her own tower. There were 5 different tea sandwiches - the chicken and tuna salad were really good. There were generous slices of honey dew melon, cantaloupe, and pineapple, along with 2 sliced strawberries and a few blue berries - all arranged on greens and all tasted great. The sweets on top included a small slice of strawberry shortcake, cherries in a puff tart, and a rich gooey chocolate brownie square. The food was so filling that we decided to walk it off by touring the house which was tastefully furnished and decorated in period pieces. The BEST part was the gift shop - Very nice and unique items for very reasonable prices - I was actually stunned at the prices, being used to overpriced trinkets. They had much more than trinkets and enough variety to appeal to anyone. I purchased an adorable tea cup votive candle holder and a 'perfect cup of tea' measuring spoon for only $10.00 for both. Sue and Beverly were there that day and were really superb. We both felt we were treated very well and is our top tea room for the Victorian experience. We would definitely go back and definitely recommend to everyone. Enjoy!

      Tearoom response:

      This is one of my 2 favorite tea rooms. The décor is Victorian and very pretty. The high tea is always excellent. The teas served are leaf teas and there is a good selection. The soups are varied and different. This time it was carrot ginger. Delicious!!! The owner is pleasant and very accommodating. I love going to this tea room. You will have a great experience when you try this tearoom.

      What a wonderful experience to visit this tea room! As soon as you walk in the door,you are transported back in time to Downton Abby time period. I have never been to a more beautiful Victorian tea room. And the food was fabulous and plentiful. The service was excellent and very friendly. On my visit last week, Abigail's was all decorated in the Valentine's Day Theme, unlike anything I have ever seen in any establishment. Professionally done with great taste and elegance, yet now over done. Just Perfect! We had a wonderful time as always and are already planning our return.

      My friend, Nikki and I visited your tearoom, and we were so impressed, we already made a reservation for next month. Everything was beautifully presented, and beautifully decorated. Rita, the owner, was so nice, and our server was very pleasant. Very relaxing afternoon, and we can't wait for our next visit.

      Tearoom response:

      Marty, I remember you and Nikki, you both have a great sense of humor :) We always enjoy down to earth, happy go lucky people. You asked when we take down the Christmas decorations and put up the Valentines Day..And that I did this last weekend..So come on back and have a look. Abigail's is all decked out in red and white hearts and rose! Although, I just remembered I forgot to take the poinsettias out of the swan planter at our front door. I guess I better get a move on! Just when I thought I was done!

      

      Upon our arrival, the owner was talking to an employee and never looked up to greet us. After waiting several minutes, she eventually looked up, asked our name, then scolded us for being 10 minutes late. She spent the next 10 minutes 'looking' for a table for 5 of us. The entire place had one other party of four!!! Then we were told we could only order 3 pots of tea for the 5 of us. It's a Tea Room!!! The waitress looked mad from the time she approached our table. She never smiled the entire time. The soup was good, but it was downhill from there. The tea sandwiches were tastelass. They had virtually nothing on them. The bread was dry. We were each given one teeny tiny scone on a plate. No more were included. The deserts were tastless, dry and not at all interesting. I would never go back to this dusty, tired old palce with crabby, senile, old ladies running it.

      Tearoom response:

      Pat..I am very sorry that you felt your visit was this bad. Frankly I just don't understand it at all, as told this way. I have never scolded anyone, although I may have mentioned you were almost 20 minutes late and we do understand, that many times with traffic, that can always happen. The problem was all our other tables were reserved for a large group coming in and since we try and give all our quest a full 2 hours to enjoy tea with Abigails, your table may have had to be changed to another so you would have that quality time with your quest. On busy days even 10 or 20 minutes late can become a problem. But I did seat you at a very nice large table and yes I 'suggested' a 3 pot limit on your table but, I also explained why. That is because 5 pots of tea on the table with all the other food we do bring for each quest, your table would be to cluttered and there would be no room for the tiered individule servers we bring each quest. However, I always tell my tables that we will refill your your pots with the same flavor or a different flavor and that they you will never run out of tea! And I do know we made a lot more pots of tea for your table and we were happy to do so. <BR> <BR> As for the rest of your comments about the food, my staff and the old ladies running it, I guess it is best left alone. All in all it was a bad experience for you and I can't change that but I am truly sorry we did not meet your expetations on this day.

      This is the second time I have been to Abigail's Tea Room for there Victorian Candle Light Christmas Tea. The food was very good we had the five course tea. First course was scones and tea bread w/ sweet cream and jelly. 2nd course was bowl of Soup DeJour, 3rd course toss salad w/ choice of dressing, 4th course was 5 different tea sandwiches w/ fruit and cream puff swan and choice of dessert. My only recommendation would be that they would have more wait staff. Our waitress seem very busy and we had to ask for some things like cream and tea refills. I also think the gift shop could offer more tea related items.

      Tearoom response:

      Nancy..I'm glad you enjoyed your visit with us and hope to see you again. You were here in December and our gift shop was very busy during november and december and we did sell out of many tea items..However, when in next time and if there is something special tea related you are looking for, just ask a staff member because due to our limeted gift shop space we have many things not on immediate display but we probably have them. We also have a full online website where we can ship directly to your home ..just about anything you can think of tea related we can ship from our website..thanks again for your visit

In addition the food was delicious-a variety of tea sandwiches, fresh homemade soups, scones, tea bread and desserts and of course an almost overwhelming choice of tea flavors! I can not wait to return to try some of the other menu items and of course some different teas!

      I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. I was a little hesitant at first because the pictures on the internet looked so beautiful. However, when you actually visit the tea room you will feel as if you have been transported back in time. The decor with the subtle music in the background just adds to the ambiance.. The service is excellent, you are able to enjoy your tea without being rushed. The food was delicious and the presentation was tastefully done. I will be visiting this tea room a lot more now that I have found this little jewel.

      Tearoom response:

      Manuela, Thank you! I am glad to see you enjoyed your visit and took notice of our music. Seven years ago when we opened Abigail's I believed the right music playing in the background was essential to our guests enjoying their dining pleasure with us. I just hate it when I go to a resturant and the music is so loud and obnoxious that I can hardly hear my friends conversation. So glad to know you appreciate our music choice. Hope to see you soon!

The room was beautifully decorated and had such an artistic, formal atmosphere, with great attention to detail. The food was delicious, and offered great variety. My tea was delicious and was served from a covered teapot. And the icing on the cake, so to speak, was the gift shop which offered unique and beautiful gifts not seen elsewhere!

      I had heard that Abigail's Tea Room was lovely but you have to experience it for yourself to appreciate what a real treat it is. The decor is stunning, it's as if you're stepping back in time to the Victorian era; the choice of teas is vast; and the food and the way it is presented is glorious. The gift shop is worth a visit alone. There are so beautiful tea-related items for sale that I haven't seen anywhere. Take a friend or a group of friends and enjoy a wonderful, relaxing afternoon.

      We had a wonderful experience at Abigail's. The decor in this beautifully restored Victorian was rich and elegant and set a perfect environment for our Royal Tea luncheon. The selection of teas was very good--not so many you're overwhelmed in the choosing, not so few that you can't find something to try. The finger sandwiches--my favorite part of taking tea--were splendid, as was the entire Royal Tea menu, and everything was served in a lovely manner. I'm thrilled to find a tea room here in Reading--especially one of this caliber--and plan to become a regular!

      i was told that Abigail's had closed. Was very happy to find them open and doing very well. We as a group haven't been there for a while, so we found the Tea Room much more then we last found it. What a pleasure. I am planning on attending very soon. While we were there was a young lady who was just turning 13, her mom had bought her for her special day. What a joy it was to watch her. The waitess took a picture of them and then i also went over asking if i could take some of the both of them. There is a beautiful doll in period dress, in which i took picture of her with the doll. I think she will remember specail day for years to come. As you see i am a people watcher. Enjoy your tea. ;-)

      We had a group of 12 ladies. The service was wonderful. Everyone was served at the same time. The teas were delicious. I thought the menu had more choices than some other tea rooms I've been to, and the food was excellent. I found the atmosphere to be great. I also enjoyed the gift shop. I have no complaints and plan to visit again.

      Tearoom response:

      Carol, we always enjoy groups of ladies sharing godd conversation, fellowship and laughter amoung friends. Abigail's is always greatful for the pleasure of serving you.

      The most authentic and relaxing place to experience and to enjoy a Royal High Tea in a Victorian Setting. Being there makes you feel like you are 'Somewhere in Time'. The food is excellent and more than plenty. We have been there twice now, once for a Valentine Day and a Christmas special event. The ladies there treat and make you feel like royalty. Would definitely encourage you to try Abigail's for your first tea. An afternoon you will never forget.

      Tearoom response:

      I will not be returning to this tearoom. Our recent experience at this tearoom has changed my opinion drastically. We had pleasant experiences there the past few years, but things have changed. It started when we went to make a reservation. We'd recently had my 1-yr-old nephew there (very well behaved, we wouldn't have taken him otherwise), but when I mentioned we'd need a high chair for this visit, I was told very firmly that they don't have high chairs. Confused, I inquired further, until I was told the one they had was broken and they would not be replacing it. The conversation continued with me feeling reprimanded because 'Do you really think bringing a child is a good idea? They don't have a very long attention span,' and basically telling me, without actually saying the words, that they don't want children in their establishment. I would have had more respect for them if she'd come out and told me that, rather than scold me and beat around the bush. She also spoke to me as if I were a child regarding the Groupon we'd purchased. Then we arrived for our lunch (sans child) only to be met with agitated and downright grumpy staff. I had to ask for water twice before I got it, and then had to ask twice again for a refill. Twice more, there were items people in my party needed, but our waitress turned and left before we could ask for it. And while tearooms are considered leisurely, and we usually enjoy it that way, we were left far too long between courses (even afterward when we wanted to pay) and it ended up making us feel as though we weren't getting the service we needed. It was not crowded the day of our visit, so there is no excuse for poor service. We also got the sense that perhaps Abigail's regrets doing the Groupon, because we got a negative vibe from them about it, both when we called and when we visited. Our experience was enough for us to decide we will take our business elsewhere.

      My grandson and wife took me to lunch at Abigail's Tearoom for my birthday. I had heard the rave reviews from others in my family and they were right. Thr selection of teas was wonderful as was the food and the service was very good. The house itself, was magnificent. It makes you feel like you have taken a step back in time to the Victorian era. The gift shop is also lovely. I would have to say that Abigail's is the best Tearoom that I have had the privigege to go to. You won't be disappointed. I am a lover of tearooms and this on surpasses the many others I have gone to. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for making a a very memorable experience for my one in a life time 5oth birthday. It was held in a very classy, antique inspired beautiful establishment. I was so impressed with the hospitality, the history of tea, the table presentation, the dishes were pretty and fancy...a warm and inviting atmosphere. Your business is nicely price. My favorite sandwich was the Apricot sandwich on cinnamon bread. um!delicious...How impressive. I will tell all my friends about your creativity and my delightful experience.

      This was a beautiful Victorian home that was tastefully decorated in the period. Their gift shop was wonderful and had a large selection of items reasonably priced. The high tea was delicious and the wait staff was extremely pleasant. If they offer the carrot soup by all means try it. It was delicious. I've been to many tea rooms over the years as a Red Hat Queen Mother and I must say this was definitly on the top of my list. I'll definitly return and tell my friends to come here as well.

      We had a Groupon deal for Victorian Tea which we looked forward to using. The experience was good but lacking in some ways for one of the top-rated tea rooms in Pennsylvania. There were many teas to choose from but nothing special. Food was good; salad was lacking...no cheese or seasonal vegetables as stated. Service was not the best as we had to chase our waitress for water, additional tea and to clear our dirty plates. The table next to us came in after us but were cleared way before us. We were also unimpressed as all the staff were in either sandals or flip flops. It was a pleasant experience but I was expecting to be wow-ed and it wasn't a wow experience, it was just ok. Sorry.

The meal included the best baked potato soup I've ever had!! (We'll return for that alone!)Our 5 sandwiches were delicious and came with a beautiful (and large) arrangement of fresh fruit. The three desserts were yummy. The only complaint I had was that the scone was a bit small. Overall, I highly recommend Abigails.

What first impressed me was the building. I then walked in and immediately felt like I was back in England. The walls, the ceilings, the beauty of your choice of colors, the tea cups, saucers, the whole Victorian experience. I spent 3 lovely hours with my Best Friend, enjoying your services. Everyone, please please make an effort to find Abigails. You will not be disappointment. You will find no other that leaves you with the experience of being in England..

      This was my first visit to Abigail's and was very excited. The food was good and our waitress was excellent. What was a turnoff for myself and my party was that the waitress was reprimanded in front of us for petty things (to me if it was important to reprimand the person, then she should have been pulled aside and not done in front of us) and when we went to check out, we had to go and search for someone to collect for the meal. Will probably not be back.

The food was delicious and presented in a timely fashion. I cannot eat mayonnaise but there was enough variety of tea sandwiches to satisfy me. Our waitress was friendly and took care of our needs. And, of course, we had to stop in the nicely stocked gift shop. We will definitely go back again.

It was of the Victorian feel (very authentic) - the music was calming - the tea was perfect - the food plentiful and delicous. I had white chai tea - which I had never tasted before- there were so many wonderful and unique flavors of tea to choose from - my second pot was mango green tea - glad I was offered to have a second pot so I could try them both. We had the high tea which included lot of courses. We never felt rushed and spent three hours slowly enjoying every part of our tea party. Beverly, our waitress, was very helpful and kind in helping to celebrate my special day. I will for sure go back to Abigails again. I can't wait to take my mother. She will love it.

Not only were the guests neighborly, but the staff at Abigail's was friendly, efficient & eager to please. Not only did the owner allow us to tour the other rooms & floor of the shop, she also regaled us with the interesting history of the fabulous Victorian home.

      I recently photographed a wedding at Abigail's Tea Room, and it was a wonderful experience all around. The staff was very friendly and seemed to be helpful to the whole wedding party and all of the guests. The entire wedding was performed at the house, with a bride's room to get ready and the ceremony across the hall upstairs, and the reception downstairs. I was of course a busy bee so I did not get to sit for tea, but many of the other guests expressed how good everything was and I did get to eat the soup and a few of the other food items and it was all delicious. The house is extremely beautiful and provided much opportunity for excellent photos.

This is an amazing experience be it for a party or an individual visit with the Victorian atmosphere, the food, the service, and especially the delicious tea! The tea party is a unique and fun theme for a baby shower, especially if the mother-to-be is having a little girl! The food and atmosphere is taken care of for you and the hostess only has to focus on games and favors. I highly recommend having your party at Abigail’s!

      I helped host a bridal shower at the tea room and it was excellent. The food and desserts were incredible, as they always are, and the presentation of food was just beautiful. They have the best brownies! The owner even helped us by decorating the guest tables and serving tables with Fall decorations, which really helped with the theme of the shower. Although I did not try any of the teas during this visit, I am amazed by the long list of teas they offer. We all had an amazing time and I would highly recommend Abigail's for any occassion.

      Friends and I hosted a bridal shower at the tearoom and it was amazing. The food was great (& more than enough) & tea wonderful and ambiance was perfect for the theme we wanted. There was a horrible storm the day before & a ton of flooding, road closures & power outages, but all employees arrived and the shower went off without a hitch! The bride, guests and myself had a wonderful time. This is definitely a place I recommend and I am looking forward to visiting again.

      I took my ten year-old daughter to Abigail's last Wednesday for our first Victorian Royal High Tea. We were warmly welcomed, and made to feel right at home. Our server Beverly was wonderful and attended to all of our needs. She surprised us with little special touches we did not even expect. Our tea, meal and experience were superb! After our meal, we asked if we could get a photo. Beverly and even the other patrons took our pictures for us and suggested different places to stand. We felt free to explore the upstairs gift room and marvelled at the decor, the gift items and friendly, home-like atmosphere. Abigail's is now our special place, and we plan to make it a new tradition! Thank you all, for such a lovely, memorable day!

Although reluctant (never having a tea room experience) he left delighted after a wonderful lunch and enjoyed being the only rooster in the hen house. We didn't have a reservation and it was a busy Saturday, but Abigail & her ladies were so accommodating to seat us and chat. On 5/21/11 my Red Hat Chapter traveled to Abigail's for our chapter anniversary. All the hatters agreed that it was the best tea house they have ever been to! Aiming to please, I am so glad I chose Abigail's for our event, certianly put a feather in my bonnet with my group! They were all so pleased they want to go back again & again, as do I.

We all said it was probably the best blueberry bread we ever tasted! The desserts were not our favorite yesterday, but honestly we were also quite full by that time as well!

      My review is actually regarding the teacup gallery, Abigail's online tea party supply store. After searching high and low, for what would be needed for a Mothers day tea at our church, I found it (actually in stock) at the teacup gallery. My order,for the gorgeous Heirloom pattern cups and saucers went out the very next day, packaged with great care, and arrived in pristine condition. I also ordered their lovely silver plated teaspoons with the rose handle-beautiful! I was treated in such a friendly and courteous manner, and will not hesitate to visit again for any tea party needs I may have. And, if I am ever in the area of Abigail's tea room, I will be visiting there to thank the owners in person!

      From all the reviews, was expecting perfection. A little too overdone in the Victoriana for me and my friends tast but what was really disappointing was the quality of the food, choice of teas and lack of welcome from staff although there were several groups there so maybe we hit them on an off day.

      Tearoom response:

      I am sorry that you did not like your experience at Abigail's when you visited with us. We do advertise we are a Victorian Tea Room, and we have tastefully decorated it without making it cluttered. We pride ourselves on the quality of food, and know that we bring the best to the table for all our guests. We offer well over 50 teas(a full variety of blacks, greens, oolongs, whites, and many herbals), so I do not know how that would be lacking? And the tea list is constantly changing, as we add more great teas to the list. I pride myself in the fact that everyone has always enjoyed our staff and there graciousness, I have a great staff, that is loved by many, and they do a beautiful job of making everyone feel at home and relaxed. I receive compliments every day about them and there wonderful ways. We do a great job here at Abigial's and we are continously striving for perfection. I wish you would of said something when you were visiting, as no one has complained at all about the items you listed? We ask every guest how there visit was before they leave...I would be interested in talking with you about your visit, and when it was, and see why you felt this way. Thank you

      My mother and I came for a holiday tea treat, at 1PM on Friday 12/10/10. She had a full afternoon tea, and I had a chicken Waldorf salad and dessert; as well as a seasonal eggnog-flavored tea. We also each received a small, warm, freshly baked scone and a piece of spice teabread. The food was excellent, as were my holiday black tea and my mother's herbal tea. The ladies who own and run Abigail's make all of the food themselves, and it couldn't be fresher or more delicious. As we were leaving, the whole house smelled delightfully of the pineapple upside down cake that was being baked for the upcoming evening candlelight holiday tea. The ladies were attentive and lovely, giving us some of the history of the house along with their attentive service. The interior is very Victorian, and there is a very well-stocked gift shop. We had a lovely experience, and would highly recommend Abigail's to anyone else.

I pass it every day on my way to and home from work and I have been impressed by all the work that had been done on restoring this beautiful old Victorian home. Well, anyway, neither my sister nor her friend had even experienced a tea room before and none of us were disappointed. The teas were wonderful, great variety and served elegantly yet cozy.

      My friends and I visited Abigails Tea Room on 9-11-10. I loved the atmosphere and victorian decor. One of my friends and I have been to many tea rooms. We were slightly disappointed in the presentation of the food and the small bland sandwiches. We had the high tea, sandwiches and desert were served on a tier plate. It would have been nice to have a small plate to put what we were eating on also. The sandwiches were ok but disappointed that they were not anything special and very little filling. I have tea parties for my 4 granddaughters at my home and create unique sandwiches and desserts. The sandwiches could be layered and coated on the edges with parsley, chopped nuts, etc. Overall, it is a lovely tea room to relax,enjoy tea and time with friends.

We could not stop looking around and talking about the beautiful architecture of the old Victorian building and how it was restored and decorated. It truly takes you back to another time! There is a great variety of teas to choose from and the food variety and quality is excellent. Our server was friendly and tea and food was presented very well on very nice china. I will definitely be returning and I look forward to taking my little girl to Abigail's for a birthday treat. You should definitely visit. Be sure to take advantage of their parking lot!

      Four of us went out to enjoy a tea room before one of us moves away. Abigail's was wonderful. Beautifully decorated, with quite an array of teas. We had the High Tea, which came with soup, salad, sandwiches, fruit and desserts--all presented so nicely and delicious. The service was great and we had a lovely afternoon.

      Abagail's atmosphere was charming. The rooms were uniquely decorated with old fashioned style. The gift shop contained many interesting items including beautiful tea cups. The food was amazing and served on adorable dishes of varying designs. The tea was served in individual teapots kept warm with a fabric covering amd the service was pretty fast. Overall, the experience was like no other; one I would repeat.

      The service was above and beyond. I had a flat tire and they called my AAA repair service and arranged to have my tire repaired. By the time we finished our delicious, relaxing lunch, my tire was repaired. My friends and I have made reservations for Christmas and recommend Abigial's to our friends. I think we will try the High Tea next time. Thank you for a memorable Birthday Lunch!

      A fried and I went for tea on June 26th; this was our first visit. The tea room was beautifully appointed in a victorian style. We both had a high tea, which began with a scone and piece of tea bread. The scone was a bit disappointing, in that the scone is usually the favorite part of our tea, and this scone was quite small and more of a cake consistency rather than a scone consistency. Additionally, we each got less than a teaspoon dollop of cream with the scone. Of course we probably could have asked for more but opted on to. Despite this begining, the remainder of the tea experience was excellent. The soup and salad were outstanding, we had a choice of soups and dressings for our salads. the sandwiches were fresh and excellent, as were the sweets. Overall, this was well worth our trip from Maryland.

      My friend and I were talking about having lunch at Abigail's Tea Room for months and I'm glad we finally were able to find a date so we could do so. The hostess was extrememly knowledgeable about the different teas, herbal teas, etc. She was very warm and friendly, never making us feel rushed. The meal was very good with a nice selection of sandwiches and desserts; just enough that we were neither full nor still hungry. We are looking forward to our next visit.

      My family thought it would be nice to take my mother, their grandmother, to Abigails for Mothers Day. I was a little hesitant as I did not know what to expect being male and trying to not be uncomfortable. The staff was beyond courtious, the food was great and the inside of the establishment was breathtaking. It was a great mothers day and i hope to make some more trips with my wife and mother.

I had 4 cups. My Lite Lunch, with scones, tomatoe basil soup, a 1/2 chicken salad sandwich and fruit was outstanding, along with the service. We'll be back.

      I visited this tea room for the first time earlier this month with my mother. I traveled from Georgia as an early mother's day celebration. When we arrived we were not greeted by anyone. We had to figure out on our own who to speak with, in regards to being seated. We had reservations, and our wait time for our tea and scones was close to 30 min. The staff were not overly friendly, and we got the impression they were very stressed and overbooked. They had several large parties going on, and we felt as if our twosome was not as important. The interior of the home was decorated nicely. Parking was a nightmare. We circled a few blocks 4 times waiting for a parking spot. So, be sure to leave plenty of time for parking issues. We will look for other tea rooms in the future.

      Tearoom response:

      We are very sorry you did not have the best experience you could of had here at Abigail's. We do have a sign posted on the front door as to where you should go to check in. We do have very busy days in the tea room, and we do get many large parties. We do treat every table, whether large or not, as special, and we are sorry you did not feel this way. Our staff always strives to be extremely nice, even when we are busy. The problem we do have is that once our guests arrive and enjoy their tea and goodies, they do not want to leave, and this puts us behind. We do ask some of our guests to limit their time to avoid the over laps, but short of kicking people out?... We allow 2 hours for each table, and some of our guests still run over with all the enjoyment they are having. The parking is a problem on these busy days, and we always try to ask people to car pool, but this is not always possible. We are sorry about your day with us, and we hope you try to join us again in the future. Thank you!

Great way to spend a relaxing afternoon. The tea presentation was lovely, and the house was beautiful. I don't know why Kay, gave a bad review. I would discount it totally. I bet tea w/the queen wouldn't even suite her. I would recommend taking your friends there. Cant wait to go back. A very charming experience.

      Tearoom response:

      We are truly sorry you were disappointed. We have been open for 3 yrs, and this is the first 'not great' review we have had? I can tell you that we carry over 50 teas... so maybe you didnt get to see the list? And we have more arriving today to add to it. We also add weekly specials to our menus, and we do change the tea sandwiches often, so perhaps you will come back when there are different specials that you may enjoy more. Thank you for your patronage.

The food is absolutely delicious - will not disappoint! The presentation was authentic to high tea, and the china and utensils were simply gorgeous. Best of all, when the server learned our tea was to celebrate my grandmother's 80th birthday, she brought out the tiered serving plate with a small birthday candle stuck in one of the cake slices and proceeded to sing happy birthday to my grandmother- how thoughtful!!! The gift shop is very reasonably priced, and has many, many, lovely items for sale. You can find a nice gift for anyone and any occasion there! Overall, Abigail's Tea Room = 5 stars!!

The atmosphere is true Victorian and authentic in many ways. The history and renovation of the building itself are worth noting. Most importantly, the salad, tea, tea sandwiches and desserts were fresh, and delicious. The gift shoppe was loaded with lovely items. It was well worth the 45 minutes it took us to get there.

It was the best tea room experience I have had compared to any other tea room I have been to. I had the afternoon tea both times. The list of teas is very long and they even make their own blends! The food quality is amazing. They change their specials so the afternoon tea could be different each time you go. I have never left a tea room so full! The quanity was over my expectations. I took food home both times. The price is reasonable too. The service is very warm. They pay attention to the details. The decor is very authentic to the Victorian time and the preservation of the house is well done. Even though I did not like the location once I was inside I forgot about that. Their gift shop has a variety of items and was great for Christmas and birthday gifts.

I've only been to one other tea room & this one was much more pleasant & relaxing not to mention the wide variety of teas they have to choose from. I would definately recommend it to anyone who likes to feel girly & special! I will most certainly make it a routine to go with my girlfriends!

      What a delightful experience. What a wonderful trip back in time to a much calmer time and place. I've been to other team rooms and this one is by far the best. Not overdone like so many others. Even the gift shop had a wide selection of choices but was not overcrowded, you weren't overwhelmed with quantity, like so many others. I personally loved it.

      We have been to quite a few tea rooms and I think this is one of the most beautiful ones we've visited. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was very good. The tea room is about 45 min to an hour drive for us- but we made a day of it- shopping at the Vanity Fair Outlets first then afternoon tea. We will definitely make a trip back.

      A beautiful Victorian Tea experience. A birthday Tea is just the best gift of all when it is spent with your daughter and grandaughter in an atmosphere of beauty. The food was excellent the service the best and the waitress gracious. The candle on my brownie and the singing were an added delight. Love Abigail's Tea Room. We are already planning our next trip back in September.

      This was my second visit to Abigails Tearoom and this time the visit was for my mother's birthday! The Victorian atmosphere and decor is just wonderful and adds to a most enjoyable experience. The four of us ladies enjoyed high tea and can not begin to express how delicious everything was! The presentation of the food was beautiful and your selection of teas are outstanding! Your 'White chocolate kiss tea' was a hit with my mother! It is nice to be served pots of hot tea and every flavor we enjoyed both smelled and tasted so delicious! I can not wait to return and will recommend your tearoom to everyone! Thank you for a wonderful birthday visit for my mother!

      After hearing my friend's wonderful dining experience at Abigail's, I thought high tea would be a unique birthday present for my mother. Nine female family members (including a 6 & 8 year old) were able to share this special day. Special it was! From the beginning of our warm welcome and hot tea to the end of our delicious sandwiches and desserts, all of us agreed that we can't wait to return. The beautiful formal Victorian decor makes you feel like you are in another country.

      Tea at Abigails. A very memorable experience! This lovely 1800's Victorian Home will take you back to that legendary era when dining was a social occasion. The Victorian decor sets the mood for this delightful luncheon event. A nice variety of teas were offered with a diverse menu including things from soups to high tea. Our party of five enjoyed high tea with tender scones, home made soup, salad and a delicious variety of sandwiches and desserts. The service was excellent. We were not rushed or crowded and would highly recommend a visit to Abigails.

When you enter the Victorian Manor, it is like stepping out of a time machine to a bygone era. Everything is relaxed and definately not rushed. Just take your time and enjoy the journey. Everything is top notch and the food and service is excellent. This will not be my only trip to Abigal's. Who say's there is nothing to do in Reading? This is added to the 'To Do' list.

The place is beautiful, the service was lovely. We had high tea, but my daughter loved the scones with Cranberries and sipping her tea with her pinky out. She has already asked to go back. As a male, it was something truley different and wonderful for me to spend time with my daughter at Abigails.

      I've been to many tea houses on the East Coast and I enjoyed Abigal's very much! We had high tea on our recent visit and the Italian Wedding soup was superb! The salad, sandwiches were very good and the presentation beautiful. I wasn't very impressed with their scones. They were small and not truly a scone. However the atmosphere and the congeniality of the staff more than made up for the scones. We had an opporutnity to talk to the owner, Rita who is a lovely woman. She was very gracious and told us about the history of the Victorian Home that she and her family restored. It's a lovely place, very warm and inviting filled with yummy smells and a gift shop that most will enjoy. It's a truly Victorian experience and the tea was fresh and served flawlessly. I'm sure others will equally enjoy their visit to this lovely establishment.

      A lovely tearoom in a refurbished 1880's Victorian house. Pretty decor with lots to see (and a small gift shop with lots to buy) Warm, friendly staff made us feel welcome immediately. Soothing music and a peaceful atmosphere... truly an escape from the noise and bustle just outside. Food was fresh and good....with lovely presentation. Herbals are nice for those who who want 'tea' without really having it. I would like to see more variety in loose leaf greens and whites. One last comment.... parking is extremely limited.... 4-5 car lot and crowded, busy street parking.. could be an adventure at times. Still, I will be a return customer
