      This is a very fair and very honest review. 16 of us planned a very special Christmas tea and looked forward to it for months. It was a mother son tea. The boys dressed up in suits and tuxedos and were smashing along side their mothers dressed up for Christmas. I have been to many teas in town and out of town. The service was sorely lacking and the food was just OK at best. The food would have looked and tasted a lot better with a friendly face serving it. We had to ask for cream, which turned out to be milk instead - not even half and half. Then we had to ask for a refill because there wasn't enough for the whole table. The food was not plentiful and was way less than what I am used to at a tea. The girl waiting on us had absolutely no personality. She did not visit with ANY of the guests and did not smile and was not personable at all. She had no interaction between the mothers or the sons. I had to wait for *15 minutes at the register* to pay my bill while my other guests waited outside. Every other high Christmas tea I have been to in town is so special. They really go the extra mile in creating a special keepsake for each person in attendance. The rooms in the house were pretty. The absolute highlight was the guest carolers in the house. They were a joyful group of ladies that were so personable and lovely. I would recommend the Brambleberry Cottage and Tea Shoppe hands down over this one. The food is prettier, there is more of it, they are more personable and the experience is what you would expect it to be.

      I loved the Silver Spoon. It was even better than I expected. The place itself is beautiful. The tea and the food are fantastic (I really recommend the chocolate strawberry saffron tea). The service there was great too. Our waitress was very attentive, and fun to interact with. It was an incredible experience, and I can't wait to visit again.

      What an absolutely wonderful afternoon! My daughter and I were blessed and honored to be taken to high tea by our very good friend CJ. It was everything and more than we could have imagined. The exquisite Victorian home lovingly transformed into the most dreamy tea house is a sight to behold. Sylvia was a wealth of knowledge on the history of the home as well as the many and varied teas she offers, all of which were perfectly brewed. Each course was a scrumptious explosion on ones taste buds and was perfectly complimented by the tea. We were never rushed and allowed to enjoy each course to the fullest before the next was served. The food was perfectly prepared and served at perfect temperature! The three tired tray with the sandwiches, desserts and fruit was preciously presented and a work of art. The portions were perfect and we left with contented tummies. The tea room was art in itself and a feast for the eyes. We spent hours just enjoying the lovely china, beautiful and perfect table settings, wonderful antiques and wonderful tea menu. Sylvia is an artist in tea and the menu choice has some of the finest varieties available! The gift shop has everything a tea lover could want and I of course could not leave without one of her rare collectibles. My daughter and I are so very anxious to make a reservation and return for another feast for our eyes as well as our tummies. We were able to get a tour of the beautiful home and the quality of craftsmanship that went into building a treasured beauty such as the Monroe home. Not only is Sylvia's tea house her business,it is her passion and makes for a once in a lifetime experience (unless you go again as we plan to). This is a must for any tea lover or aficionado! This was the best time I have spent with my very good friend CJ, my beloved daughter and the wonderful experience of high tea. Thank you Sylvia!

      Wonderful selection of European teas on their menu that can be purchased to take home at the counter. The atmosphere is incredibly relaxing, inviting, and regal without having a single ounce of pretentiousness. The owner is an absolute pleasure to talk to, and service is personable and friendly. To date, I've had the Darjeeling, Assam, Russian Caravan, and Raspberry Litchi teas and have loved them all. The walk-in Petite Tea Service for 2 is a perfect light lunch, though Silver Spoon truly shines when you make a reservation for one of their afternoon tea services. The various sandwiches, pastries, and cakes are a delight and complement their tea perfectly.

      Excellent tea and an extremely enjoyable experience all around! My AP Literature class visited for a field trip, and it was quite splendid to say the least! The interior is charming, and the presentation is magnificent. Three pots of tea are served throughout the course of the meal. My table selected the English Breakfast Tea, Darjeeling, and Fruity Sangria, each of which were fantastic! The food was equally memorable, with the portions being perfectly sized as well! I would definitely recommend anyone who is interested to stop by!

      There are very, very few places to dine in Spokane where manners and leisure combine to make such a fine experience. We go for every important family occasion. We are celebrating Grandma's 75th birthday there in November. This place is lovely and gracious without being pretentious. My teenage sons are young gentlemen, and enjoy themselves immensely at tea. The staff are professional and knowledgeable. The food and teas are so lovingly prepared and served, each guest feels transported to a different age.

      My friend took me to lunch today for my birthday. She is gluten free so we called first, but they had a wonderful lunch ready that was delightful and just as big a treat for both of us. The strawberry cream scones were light and warm. Then soup, crepes, bite size sandwiches, and then dessert! We couldn't eat it all! There is a great selection of teas and you get three pots throughout your meal. It was more than enough for our meal. We started with the classic Earl Grey, tried a Roibois with our sandwiches and finished with a spice Christmas tea. The pot felt bottomless and we enjoyed all of the choices and flavors offered. The owner knows a lot about china and porcelain was wonderful sharing her knowledge with us about her collection. It all comes together in this old Victorian home making for such a relaxing day. We closed the place down....something to be said for a pair of teetotalers!

      A wonderfully, elegant decor with an impressive list of teas and superior service made our experience memorable. The fact that the owner, Sylvia, stopped by our table to introduce herself and ask about our tea service was very much appreciated. I plan to visit again. This time I'll take my 6 year old daughter. Sylvia said she would serve hot chocolate in a teapot just for her. I think she'll love it!

      I first visited the Silver Spoon two weeks after they opened. I was impressed by their style. These folks really knew how to deliver an afternoon tea! I've been back to visit twice since then and my already great opinion of this tea house continues to grow. Their service is friendly and hospitable, the atmosphere is *excellent*, the food is delicious and the teas on the whole are nicely prepared and flavorful. I recommend the Silver Spoon to anyone who lives in or will be visiting Spokane. It's great to have such a lovely venue for tea.

      A good friend of mine had a surprise birthday party here, and I must say that it was a lovely treat for everyone, not just the birthday girl. You don't have to be a tea officianado to come here and appreciate the atmosphere. We got to try three different teas and they served us scones and a three tiered tray of assorted sandwiches and pastries. My favorite was the pastry shaped like a swan! So beautiful! I didn't want to eat it it was so pretty, but then I did and it was amazing. Highly recommend this place. Just wonderful people and food. :)

      My granddaughter, who was visiting from South Bend, Indiana, specifically requested a return visit this month to the Silver Spoon Tea House. We both like the attention to guests that Laura and Sylvia give ~ and we love all the delectable food so beautifully served! Also the variety of teas available. Stef (my granddaughter) has taken a leaf from Silver Spoon and now gives teas to her colleagues at Notre Dame! Of course she had to have teapot warmer from SS plus the Assam Tea she became so fond of last year. I know we'll be back next summer!

      I recently attended my granddaughter's 13th Birthday Party for 'Tea' at your lovely venue. It was an incredible experience and everyone had a great time! The food was excellent! I even enjoyed the soft, beautiful music playing in the background. I had the pleasure of touring the beautiful home, afterwards, with dreams of how nice it would've been to have lived there in that era! This delightful tea has inspired me to have friends over and actually USE my tea pot and tea cups collected over the years, hee hee, and help my granddaughter begin her collection as well! Thank you for providing such an excellent time. I read a few of your reviews, and can hardly wait to come back and try the Marie Antoinette service you described!! I will, most definitely, be a repeat customer! ♥

      I attended a baby shower for my niece at The Silver Spoon Tea House, and had a wonderful time. There was an unbelievable variety o teas available, and the strawberry scones were the best I have ever had. The rooms in the house were beautifully decorated, and the service was excellent. The only change I would make is to have more finger sandwiches and less sweet treats on the serving trays. There were two sandwiches offered, and a delicious potato/cheese puff. More savory items on the trays would make a better balanced presentation.

      Tearoom response:

      Nancy <BR> It was such a pleasure to have you and your friends and family visit us- just wanted to let you know that typically we do offer more in the way of sandwich or savory options but the items prepared for your event were chosen by your host to meet a specific budget. Normally we offer more sandwich and savory options in a service and as such this event was a customized service- you should come see us again and opt for the Marie Antoinette service which includes more sandwiches, a salad or soup course, and our delicious crepe course. We so enjoyed your group thank you for your kind review.

Both times the tea selection we had was wonderful; the food was elegant and superbly delicious and the surroundings take you back in time and are so artfully done. My sister's touching comment says it all - 'I will never forget this.' Then she added, 'that is until I can't remember my own name!' I hope this place stays in business a very long time!! What a great gift it has been to me both times. It won't be my last!

      My daughter (11) & I wanted to go on a mommy-daughter date & we chose to go here. What a good decision! My daughter loved the entire experience, the tea, the food-everything! The owner was incredibly kind & treated us as though we were her most valued customers, even though it was our first time there. We will definitely be going back! I can't wait to try more of their fabulous teas.

      When I found out i was going to tea with my grandmother. I wasn't sure what to expect, but once at the Silver Spoon, oh WOW! The architecture of the place is just outstanding along with the decorations. Our food and tea were so good we just couldn't get enough of either especially the carrot cake (yum!). Most of all by the time we were done, time had flown by without us knowing and had realized we spent well over 2 hours enjoying the tea and the light atmosphere of the Silver Spoon.

      My sister, Nancy, treated me to a birthday celebration luncheon/tea at Silver Spoon. We relaxed, sipped excellent tea and delicious food from scrumptious scones, lovely salad, yummy chicken/asparagus crepes to a tray of sweets & savories. They gave me a sample tea bag and 'silver' spoon as a gift. We lost track of time and suddenly realized we'd been there 2 -1/2 hours visiting, relaxing, enjoying the ambience and each other.

      I was visiting from NYC and a friend invited my mom and me to a full tea service. I had been to high tea at the Plaza several times and was so excited. The mom and daughter team at the Silver Spoon Tea House were just so so lovely. First, when you get there you're gonna fall in love with it! The architecture gets you in the mood for an English tea the minute you set eyes on the place. Secondly, the rooms are all decorated with so much love - you can't help but pick out one and claim it as yours (as though this lovely old house is now going to be occupied by you and your friends). Third, you sit down to the tea service and realize these ladies love and know their tea! They helped us pick out some really lovely ones (and one we ended up not loving which they switched out super quickly). Fourth, the food, oh the food, it was so so yummy! The soup, the sandwiches, the sweets.....! Just so lovely. Afterwards, my friend bought me a really beautiful tea cup and saucer for my collection - that I will cherish with fond memories of a wonderful day spent with friends and dickies teas. (As a bonus: get the ladies to tell you about their traveling adventures!) Thanks again for a lovely time!

      Hello Friends, My experience at The Silver Spoon Tea House was and still is (as this Wednesday will be my 13th time taking another special friend) absolutely wonderful! Sylvia and Laura have held true to their sign – 'Arrive as uests * leave as friends'. I can’t tell you how personable they have been to me and to my guests. Seems like every friend I bring, Sylvia and Laura find something in common with them. I love the conversations we have with them and I love always receiving a warm welcome and a fond adieu. Now to the tea. My goodness! I have gone to many teas in my time, however, the afternoon teas at Silver Spoon is the best I have ever enjoyed. I always order the Marie Antoinette Tea. So many courses and almost each time there is something different than the last. Different flavored scones warm out of the oven, your choice of, I think, 30 teas to choose from, either a salad or soup, depending on the season, chicken crepe (yum), and then the three tier tray full of miniature tea sandwiches, pastries & fruit. And a slice of delicious cream cheese cake or carrot cake or whatever their baker has for that day. You can dress up or come casual. The house is beautifully decorated and each room is different. Love browsing around and I always buy one of their unique displayed gifts when I leave as they are not something you find just anywhere. I could go on and one but the main point is that this tea house is magical to me and they always make you feel special and like you’ve been friends for a long time. Also, they have special events all the time and theme teas and they will do their best to fit you in even on late notice if possible. Very accommodating in everyway possible. They can get busy, however, of all the times I have been, The Silver Spoon Tea House is never a rushed experience and it gives my friend(s) and I time to enjoy quality time together in such a lovely atmosphere. I don’t know how they do it all but I love their spirit and their knowledge of teas and stories of their world travels. Other family members are involved from time to time and they are all so very talented and very polite. A loyal and happy guest and friend. Cj Krempels <3 Will see you again soon!

      Tearoom response:

      Wow! Who would have known that your first tea reservation over a year ago- would turn into a most blessed friendship- We sure are fortunate to have a lovely friend and patron in you.

      I took my daughter to the Silver Spoon Tea House for the Lady Marguerite Tea, and we were impressed with the calm, elegant atmosphere. Sylvia described many of the tea flavors for us and provided wonderful service, without invading our space. We thought the savory little sandwiches were our favorite part of the meal, but we also loved the slices of carrot cake. When we asked, Sylvia allowed us to wander around the house and peek into other beautiful rooms. I'm planning to take my sister there for her birthday, too, since the menu includes gluten free items. It was a very special time.

      We took our boys (12, 7, and 4) to the Silver Spoon and we all loved it. The food was delicious, the desserts were out of this world, and the service was exceptional. The house is gorgeous, and of course the tea was amazing. I can't recommend the Silver Spoon enough. My 12 year old was begging to go back for more Carrot Cake tea the next day, and my little ones loved the French Vanilla. Can't wait to go back the next time we are in Spokane.

      What a delightful experience! How often can we enjoy a visit to the past while remaining firmly rooted in the present! I cannot say enough about this amazing tea house. My sister and I are from New York and attending our nieces graduation. We are both huge fans of High Tea and have sampled many tea houses all over the U.S. we both agree that this tea house is listed as number 1 in Washington for a reason. It is by far one of the best tea houses we have ever been to. The house is clean, elegant, and smells so good the second you open the door you feel like a little kid on a treasure hunt. Each room is more delightful than the last. The food was beyond the typical fare you get at most tea houses, very delicious and beautifully presented. No detail was left wanting. The tea was so flavorful and brewed to perfection. It is my pleasure to state this was such a happy visit that left me smiling inside and out! Thank you Silver Spoon- you made our trip to Spokane even better.

      A group of friends and myself visited The Silver Spoon Tea House for the first time last Saturday and were completely in awe of this beautiful venue. The house is elegantly decorated and the gift shop is charming. We were seated in a gorgeous room with a meticulously dressed table of white linens and a perfect setting of beautiful English china. The food was divine and the tea was so tasty and soothing. The owner was so friendly and cordial, she made us feel like family. Everything was perfect and my friends and I are still talking about our wonderful tea experience and when we can plan another visit. Thoroughly satisfied and so happy to finally have a tea house like this in Spokane.

      Over the past few weeks I've had the pleasure of coming to the Silver Spoon Tea House for my daughter's 10th birthday, Mother's Day and to just stop in for some scones and a gift card. Sylvia and her family is such a delight and those scones are amazing - lemon, pecan, strawberry, peaches and cream - each time I try a new kind I'm amazed! How many tea houses do you know that serve chicken stuffed crepes with a Dijon sauce and asparagus? Simply a required destination if you enjoy tea, good food and great service!

      I have been thinking about this since December and after much soul searching and thought I feel compelled to write a review of The Silver Spoon Tea House. I have been in a quilt group for over 25 years and every year we have a special Christmas party. We were very excited to come to the Silver Spoon. We made reservations several months in advance and were told we would have an upstairs room that would seat 10 around a table so we could visit. Upon our arrival we were seated in a room at 3 separate tables which was not very conducive to visiting. The tea was lovely, the food very nice BUT our server was rather uppity and made comments that were not very customer service oriented. We are a nice group of long time Spokane ladies and we will not return to your Tea House nor will be give a positive review to our friends. I see that you have many lovely reviews which is commendable. In our case 'the truth is an absolute defense'.

      Tearoom response:

      This is a very sad situation of misunderstanding. The lady who made the reservation clearly did not understand that our tea house cannot accommodate a large group at one table. Never once in all the groups- sororities, red hat groups, church groups, bridal etc. have we EVER run into a problem with a complaint of being seated in the same room at multiple tables. The tea house was built in 1903 and the rooms are only capable of holding so many, had the lady who made the reservation inquired or previewed the tea house prior to reserving her group perhaps this situation may not have happened. This is clearly not a reasonable reason to be upset we did not enforce these accommodations upon your group and our server did all she could to remedy the situation- I WAS the server- and feel I tried very hard to make light of the situation, joke etc. but was constantly barked at by the coordinator and made to feel as if I were to blame for the seating misunderstanding when there was nothing I could do but smile, serve tea and give the very best I possibly could to ensure the rest of the group had a lovely service- we also offered to move your group and your coordinator declined rather rudely. I am sorry you feel so compelled to harbor bad feelings about your visit to the tea house and decided to leave a scathing review several months later. We have moved on and determined that you cannot please everyone no matter how much you try. We are sorry for what we think was an embarrassment to the coordinator at having hoped for seating that we cannot provide- We did however give your group their own room, tried our best to make your service as nice as possible despite the extreme rudeness- and in the end---found that the dissatisfaction could not be overcome due to someone's decision to be disgruntled from start to finish. Again- our sincere apologies and we will just continue to please all our happy customers and make new ones as we can and learn from our experiences. We are a new business and sometimes the effort to work through growing pains can be difficult when some people choose to not let something go or offer understanding for a miscommunication. We wish you and your long time Spokane ladies well and hope that you will find a place to have tea or services that meet your needs as we know that that place is NOT this tea house.

      My sister made a reservation for tea at this amazing establishment for my birthday. I loved everything about it. The rooms are so elegant, the food so delicious and pretty, service was very attentive and conversational, the tea was hot and very flavorful.. I loved the toasted cookie one and my sister loved the pomegranate pear tea. They had prepared a little floral gift for me in a tea cup which was an added surprise for me to take home. My sister and this tea house made my day perfect in every way. Can't wait to take my friends. Thank you Sylvia it was so nice to visit your lovely tea house.

      I've been here twice so far for a full tea service & it was absolutely wonderful both times. Most recently Dec. 20th when everything was beautifully decorated for Xmas. The surroundings were so lovely & the food, the teas, the presentation, & the service were delightful. They have a tea menu with an extensive selection of teas & so far I've tried 6 different varieties of tea & enjoyed each. All of the food--scones, tea sandwiches, & sweeties--were delicious & attractively presented. This is one of the nicest tea houses I've been to--and I LOVE going for tea!

      Tearoom response:

      Carolyn,<BR> <BR> We appreciate your return visits and that you have had such a great time on both visits to the tea house. Very Best Wishes and thank you for your lovely review.

      Attended the Downton Abbey tea today with my mother. The food was fabulous especially love the chocolate biscuit cake. The staff were so friendly and helpful taking us through each course. The scones melted in your mouth and each course was equally as delicious. My mother uses a walker and it was so helpful that we were able to park so close to the handy cap ramp. We played Downton trivia and our hostess played an antique Victorian music box for our enjoyment as well as providing Victorian stereoscopes and viewing cards for our amusement. The setting of this tea house is one you will not want to miss. Even though the tea house was full and the servers extremely bust they did a excellent job of making my mother and I feel special. I already booked the mothers day tea so I can return and share another lovely experience with my mother. Thank you Silver Spoon, I am so happy to have found this wonderful tea house.

      My English class came here on a field trip to see what a real 'high-tea' service was like. I was expecting it to be fancy and snooty, but it was quite the opposite! The decor was beautiful and transported you back in time. It felt like a museum, as the staff encouraged us to walk around the house and explore. Would recommend to anyone, fancy or casual!

We loved the personal tour of all the rooms and the history of this gorgeous home. We are looking forward to bringing friends and family as often as we can. Bravo!

      I've been to many tea services, including others in Spokane, many in major cities, and even around the world. The Silver Spoon is one of the best!

      The afternoon tea service was very professional. For those who haven't been to a tea house before I would highly recommend it. Both the food and tea were delicious, prompt, and appealing in presentation. The atmosphere of the house down to its decorations are very representative of the Victorian style. Service was cheerful and friendly; all courses of the meal were explained before hand so that you knew exactly what to expect. Tea was hot and thoroughly brewed as well. Overall, a wonderful and enjoyable experience that I would happily return to!

      A beautiful venue. The house is impecably decorated giving the sensation that you just entered into the Victorian era. The four course tea was exceptional.

      My Red Hat group visited this tea room on Saturday December 14, 2013. The house has been beautifully furnished and decorated wonderfully for Christmas. There were several other groups being served on the same day, therefore the service was a tad bit slow. The tea selections and the food were both great. The service people were very friendly and very willing to see to our needs. There was a slight misunderstanding that the management took care of promptly. Overall it was a great experience but because of some medical disadvantages of some of our ladies, if we come back, we will ask for service on the main floor. We also had the added delight of being serenaded by a gentleman playing a guitar and a lady with a beautiful voice.

      My quilting group had our Christmas luncheon at the Silver Spoon Tea House. The pastries were lovely and the tea was good. However, the service was poor. Our server was cranky and ignored our table. She seated us in a room that was too small to accommodate our party - even though we made reservations months in advance. We were so disappointed after reading all of the great reviews. I won't return to the Silver Spoon. I want to go where my business is appreciated.

      Tearoom response:

      We are ever so sorry that we could not accommodate having this group at one table, and it is unfortunate that one person in this group that made the reservation did not request such accommodations when she made the reservation but rather became dissatisfied and hard to please throughout the entire service. Although I feel we were extremely doting it was apparently missed that we chose to ignore rude behavior to ensure the rest of the group had a wonderful time. It's as the saying goes...you can't please all the people all the time and certainly not the ones who are dissatisfied before they even sit down. Read all the other beaming reviews before considering that this one holds even an ounce of merit.

      Several years ago while visiting my husband's sister and family in Spokane my sister- in-law dragged me to a local tea house. I found the atmosphere and offerings to be quite unremarkable. So when in Spokane for another visit in September I was anything but thrilled when my host announced another afternoon tea. I put on my best smile, graciously accepted and away we went. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at The Silver Spoon Tea House. The lovely Victorian was impressive and welcoming, not at all ordinary. From the moment we stepped into the superbly appointed establishment I was intrigued by the ambience of a long ago era. My request for a tour of the private teas rooms was graciously granted by the owner. The amazing selection of teas and sumptuous savories were to die for. On our next visit to Spokane rest assured I will be the one insisting on tea at The Silver Spoon Tea House.

      I am visiting from MI and was fortunate enough to be taken to this lovely tea room. The scones were deilicious and the clotted cream divine! It's decorated beautifully and the owners are friendly and accommodating. My only suggestion would be the same that I feel about so many great tea rooms- why don't they use cozies to keep the teapot hot?:)

      Tearoom response:

      Sharon,<BR> Thank you for your visit and kind review. <BR> Just wanted to let you know we do not use tea cozies but rather tea warmers- little porcelain burners that the teapot rests upon while a tea light warms the pot. They are easy to miss as the teapot rests upon it. We hope you will visit us again all the way from MI :)

      My sister and I took our grandma to the Silver Spoon Tea House to celebrate her 93rd birthday. We had a lovely time together and have already made plans to return with our mother. The list of teas to choose from was quite extensive and varied. We were encouraged to try different teas, and were able to choose three different pots of tea, which we shared during our visit. The food was wonderful as well, and the atmosphere was very inviting. As a busy mom of four kids, I found it wonderfully relaxing and felt as if I had stepped back in time to a slower paced era. I look forward to my next visit to the Silver Spoon Tea House!
