      What a lovely surprise! Our GPS took us to a private residence and as we rang the bell we had no idea what to expect...my granddaughter, daughter-in-law and myself were in for a delightful treat! Elaine was a gracious hostess and we immediately felt at home and welcome. All the food was made at home and the menu changes monthly. It was so delicious that even though I was stuffed I managed to squeeze in the last bites! (She does have little boxes for those who need them) If you are reading this you are probably considering going. Do it!

      Recently a group of friends who get together every summer had tea at Elaine's tea Room. It was the perfect start to our 17th year together. Elaine even wore her kilt. The tea is very special and you can't fine it anyplace else in Cincinnati. Everything was perfect from the scones to the soup to the desserts. We all loved it.

      I busted Elaine's with a few friends and had the most beautiful experience. The venue was perfectly decorated, with such an air of cozy, homemade elegance. The Tea selection was superb, and I cannot tell you how amazing the homemade food was. The pastries were not too sweet, and well balanced. The soup was rich and yet subtle. And our hostess was as genuinely kind and attentive as one would want. Literally the best tea room I've ever been to this side of the pond.

      Ms. Elaine's Tea Room is amazing. The ambiance of the atmosphere and the aromas of the surroundings were inviting, awesome and so intimate. Then you have Elaine herself serving you her delectable scones and teas and oh my, all 5 courses were a sheer delight and so delish!! Knowing the food was homemade and mostly organic made us love it that much more. This High tea was definitely the genuine thing and I cannot wait to return. Anyone who has grown up with High Tea or even new to it will thoroughly enjoy this experience.

      My mom, aunts and I celebrated our July birthdays by having tea at Elaine's Tea Room in West Chester. Elaine's personality was very pleasant and inviting and her home beautifully decorated. Our first serving included an international black ceylon tea that was surprisingly mild to the taste accompanied by delicious, fresh fruit, gourmet cheese and crackers. This was followed by wonderful, homemade tea sandwiches, choice of cold or hot soup, muffins and mouthwatering scones from Elaine's mother's recipe. Dessert was a choice of either homemade mince-meat brownies (delicious and moist) or homemade custard with fresh orange slices (my favorite). We ended our lovely, relaxing afternoon with a domestic peach tea that was so flavorful no sweetener was needed. I highly recommend grabbing your friends and scheduling tea at Elaine's...you won't be disappointed!

      My niece held a baby shower at Elaine's Tea Room recently and it was so lovely. A perfect venue for a shower of any kind. The room is very comfortable, and the selections of scones, sweet breads, sandwiches and teas were exceptional. Elaine is the perfect hostess.

      If you're seeking sophisticated relaxation, Elaine's Tea Room fits the bill. It was a quiet step back into a Victorian afternoon tea with a four-course meal that included creamed carrot soup, cucumber sandwiches and a variety of tea breads, crunchy blueberry loaf and scones topped with lemon curd (delightful), strawberry champagne jam and mock Devonshire Cream. The aroma from a variety of freshly brewed teas filled the senses accompanied by classical music wafting in the background. I enjoyed celebrating this early Mother's Day celebration with my sweet daughter, Jessica, who very soon will be embarking on motherhood again for the third time with our new granddaughter.

      Oh where do I start? What a wonderful time we had at Elaine's Tea Room! My mother and I were celebrating an early Mother's Day! We were greeted by Elaine, and seated in the most elegant room. Classical music filled the air, and each table had its on unique decoration. When she said to Coke hungry, she wasn't kidding. We started with the house tea (delicious black tea) and homemade crackers, cheese and fruit. The macaroni Ratatouille was absolutely scrumptious. On such a rainy day, it hit the spot. There were 3 more courses to follow, and we finished our meal with Elaine's homemade apple pie and petit four (small confectionary). Those were both beyond words. Every bite was amazing. This is definitely an experience worth having! Thank you Elaine for sharing your culinary and entertaining gift.

      I spent the afternoon at Elaine's Tea Room. It was a wonderful experience. I am a very finicky eater and don't like to venture too far out of my comfort zone. However, after tasting the cuisine, I loved every bite. The choice of delicious teas, great atmosphere, and a delightfully gracious host made for an afternoon I won't soon forget or stop talking about.

      I had a wonderful experience at Elaine's Tea Room. The house tea was exceptional and you could tell was brewed with experience as there was no bitter unpleasant after taste. There was a large variety of tea options. I choose a chocolate tea to go with my desert which was a new and very enjoyable experience. The style is British/Victorian and the atmosphere was quant and very homey. I felt relaxed from the moment I walked in the door and was met by a very sweet and friendly Elaine. Our menu for the day was full of variety. I am a van of scones and Elaine's were superb! The Lemon curd and mock Dorshire cream were my favorites. All of the food was home made with love and the majority of ingredients were organic which was important to me. I would recommend this establishment to anyone for special occasions or anyone who just like to enjoy a pleasant afternoon with friends
