Ashes Boutique and Tea Room (3 reviews)
This place should be one of the top tea rooms in Florida. I have had the pleasure of having tea here multiple times, and never have I had a bad experience. The staff and service are excellent, the food and tea are amazing, and the atmosphere is peaceful and welcoming. There is a boutique at the front of the store that is full of wonderful gifts as well. This establishment serves quality loose leaf tea, with a very nice selection. The tea menu always has regular favorites, but also changes up a few things on the plate so you always have something new to enjoy. I went one time and they had a seafood item (I don't care for seafood), and they changed it out for me. I went again 6 months later, and they remembered I didn't like seafood and had changed it out on my tea tray before it even came out of the back. I was amazed that they remembered. Now that is incredible service! If you are anywhere in the vicinity of Jacksonville Beach, this tea room is worth the trip.
I go to this tea room on a regular basis. The atmosphere is beautiful and relaxing, the service is great, and the tea tray is absolutely wonderful in it's creativity and taste. The only critiques I can possibly come up with is the scones are not the best I've had and sometimes the tea is not prepared quite right, but this is hands down one of the better tea rooms I have ever frequented. If you are in the area, make sure you stop here and enjoy!
Excellent afternoon tea!!
