      The variety at Dollies is amazing. Her way of putting different sandwiches together is very satisfying. The service that you receive is awesome, they make you feel like you are the only one in the tearoom. Dollies food is incredible, especially her scones. They are light yet very satisfying. I have been to Dollies several times with my family. I live in Clear Spring but my family drives up from Berryville, Virginia to come to Dollies. I would highly recommend Dollies to anyone that wants a relaxed atmosphere and extremely good service

      Lovely escape for an afternoon. Amy is a charming host and makes everyone feel welcome. Her mother, Mrs. Kriner, is just as nice. There is no feeling rushed in this sweet tea room. The food is presented beautifully and it's almost a shame to eat it- but it would be a crime not too. It is simply delectable. Cucumber, carrot, ham salad and chicken salad wee sandwiches look so dainty but are quite filling. Truly enjoyed the macadamia scones with clotted cream. I highly recommend this tea room for a respite from an overly busy rushed life!

      What a fabulous way to celebrate my sweet mother's 81st birthday! The tea was scrumptious - the fare was totally delightful - and the hospitality ... perfect! Amy has done a fabulous job with this lovely tea room. She's the perfect hostess and makes sure you leave with a smile and full belly. I can't wait to go back!!! She reaches beyond the usual with her special in-house events and field trips. Check out The Teapot Post for current listings!

      We just enjoyed Dollies Candlelight Sweetheart Tea for Valentine's Day. It was wonderful! The service was too-notch and friendly. The atmosphere was delightful and romantic. The food was the best part though! Not only was the presentation lovely but everything tasted wonderful. Of course, they make a great pot of tea too! It really is a special place. Definitely worth a visit!

      I recently moved to Charles Town, WV and have made a list of tea rooms to try in the WV, MD, VA, and PA area. This has been my 6th tea room since I moved. I have to say, it was the best tea room I have I ever been to and I have been to tea rooms from NC to PA. Too many to list! When my friend and I arrived, they had just open. The kitchen door was being closed and we heard a warm hello from the ladies in the kitchen, making us feel so welcome. We were seated right away and given a sample of their newest tea, Kettle Corn. It was delicious! We then picked our teas from the extensive list. When I saw that they had Cotton Candy Tea, I just had to order it. Oh, how it made me smile, since I just love anything cotton candy. Though it is not for everyone, it was perfect it for me. My friend had the Cinnamon Spice and loved it too. The pumpkin soup then arrived and it was amazing! Such flavor! Next came the Butternut salad, it was fantastic! Last came the three tier tray of the most wonderful tea sandwiches, scones, and desserts. I almost forgot, the sorbet, which was so refreshing. After our meal, the owner came out to each table to introduced herself and asked how everything was. Of course, I had to rave about everything! This place changes their menu every month, so you have some new and exciting things to experience. A must visit!!! Thank you Dollies Tea Room for a most enjoyable experience, it rates #1 with us!

      Dollies keeps you coming back. I have enjoyed several afternoons of chatting with my daughter over tea and scones at this quaint tearoom. Recently I enjoyed an afternoon with friends at this fantastic tea room. It's just the perfect spot!! The selection of teas are wonderful-from herbal,green, decaf and black, there's a flavor for everyone. The service is so warm and welcoming,and they all love to make sure you tea is just right. Scone flavors change monthly, and are always accompanied by Dollies House special scone. This is the kind of place you want to be a regular at, so don't miss it.

      My wife and I enjoyed our visit to Dollies very much. It is easy to find and there is plenty of on street parking as well as a rear lot. The room is very nicely appointed with well spaced tables all beautifully laid. The tea selection is broad with something for every taste. The food is excellent from the scones to the desserts and the service is attentive and friendly. For a special occasion or just a nice afternoon out you will enjoy Dollies very much.

      I took my Mom and daughter to Dollie's for tea to celebrate Mom's birthday. Mom hadn't been to Dollie's before, although my daughter and I had. Mom absolutely LOVED the experience and told me that it was the best birthday present I could have given her. She can't wait to go again and will be giving a full report to the seniors group at church.

      This tea room is lovely! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a tea room to visit. Myself, mom-in-law and her mom visited this lovely tea room for the first time today and we've already arranged to go back! All the staff are friendly and introduce themselves as they pass you and Amy was so sweet, she spent a great deal of time talking to us about the different tea's and menu's. Out of all the tea-rooms I've been to this is by far my favorite!

      What a delighfully scrumptious afternoon my friend & I spent at Dollie's last week! It was simply stupendous -- the atmosphere, the mindfully created delicacies, the variety of teas, the knowledge and kindness of the staff! I can't imagine it being any more perfect! They certainly fulfill their mission to 'feed the soul as well as the body'. We've already scheduled another outing! Thank you, Dollie's!!!

      For many years my friend and I have made a 'game' of seeking out new tearooms and we have enjoyed many fine ones, and some real bummers, too. We want to tell everyone how thrilled we are with our most recent find --Dollie's! The location, the tea selection, the food and its presentation, the decor, the gift offerings, and, most importantly, the hospitality is spot-on, and the history of the building and 'Dollie' add another dimension not found in other tearooms!! If you haven't been, don't hesitate; you'll not be disappointed. Go with your friends and enjoy a whole afternoon. And check the website for special events which may be of added interest to you.

My daughter and I have visited 5-6 tea room in the tri-state areas and Dollies is number one in my book.Food, service, cheerfulness, choices of tea, and decor cannot be beat. I am already looking forward to my next visit..I always check Dollies website for the menu...

      Three of my friends have accompanied me to the Tea Room and on the May 1st trip to Annapolis. We have been impressed with the beauty of the recycled building, its intimacy and the quality of service with added touches which were evident also on the bus trip. We are all planning to go again next year on the bus trip.It was so lovely to see the May baskets at the state's capital establishments. It was an unforgettable day.

      I have been to dozens of tea houses in many states. Dollies Tea Room in Clear Spring is by far the best. The room is beautiful,the ladies are so friendly, the place settings are perfect, and the food is excellent. I am a repeat customer...and their bus trips are the best ever!

      I have especially enjoyed the bus trips sponsored by Dollie's Tea Room. Amy is the perfect attentive hostess and these trips are supremely well-organized. You are provided with amazing food and a delightful experience.

      My friend invited my daughter and I to our first tea experience at Dollie's. I must say I had an image in my mind about what I thought a tea room would be like, very fancy and over the top and I thought that I would feel out of place and uncomfortable. This was not at all the case at Dollie's, I have never felt so welcome and comfortable and every thing from the tea to the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. My daughter really enjoyed her first tea experience and I did as well. Amy was so knowledgable and everyone was so nice and the service was excellent. I would recommed that everyone try Dollie's at least once, the experience was one that I will never forget and will always cherish. Amy and her staff have done a beautiful job and I say thank you. If you are new to the tea experience, or not, I highly recommed you try Dollie's you won't be disappointed.

      What a delightful afternoon I had at Dollies Tea Room & Emporium. The Tea Room is elegant, beautifully decorated, and very relaxing. The owner and staff provided a gracious, warm, friendly,and pampered atmosphere from the moment I stepped inside the Tea Room. Dollies Tea Room has an excellent selection of teas to choose from and is served with style.The food is prepared fresh daily and is very delicious! The food flavors are outstanding, from the soup, salad, the variety of tea sandwiches, scones and desserts. I can't say enough about this Tea Room. I highly recommend it. If you are looking for somewhere 'special' to go, this is it!

      I'm not sure if it was just a bad day, but our visit was a little disappointing. The setting is very tranquil and calm, they serve loose tea which is perfect, but not a huge selection. As with any tea, food was presented well. The soup was a cold soup, but tasted only like tomotoes. A bit higher priced for the portion size. The hospitality could use some work as I found they were not overly friendly for a new tea room. I would rate it as an average tea room and will only go back if a friend wishes to experience Dollies Tea Room because as always a friend and tea are always welcome!

      My friend and I love to visit new tea rooms and we were delighted to discover Dollie's. The variety of teas made it hard to choose, but our hostess, Amy, was very knowledgable about teas and helped us make great choices! The menu was original and the food excellent. The atmosphere was calm and soothing and very condusive to relaxing and enjoying the company of a friend. The attention to detail made it a very special experience and one I plan to repeat again and again!

      The most welcoming,pleasurable place to have tea. The scones truly are the best I have ever had. The ladies know how to precisely brew the tea and the quality is excellent. Beautiful building and the patio area will be stunning when completed. I hav been a tea connoisseur for many years and find this place a TREASURE!
