A contemporary tearoom with French Country charm. Nearly 150 exquisite teas and exceptional service. Lunch is no longer served but we do serve our home-made, made-from-scratch scones and any one of our teas anytime. We carry an extensive collection of premium loose leaf teas, many of which are exclusive blends, such as WinterBerry Cream, a blend we created for Midwest Living Magazine readers for an article in which we were featured. Plus, our shop is filled with an eclectic collection of tea accessories, natural, botanical bath and body care, aromatherapy and candles, and distinctive gifts.

      I have been a long time tea drinker, and long time customer of this location. I have visted all the other local tea rooms. What makes Elaine's stand out is the professional grade of knowledge she has about tea, and the amazing variety of teas she has to offer at FAIR prices. This is not a massive tea room where you could plan to host parties, but rather a place for serious tea drinkers to learn more, and explore new teas.

      Elaine, as I believe her name is, spoke harshly of all other tea shops in the area, a rather uncheerful and off-putting attitude to have. she stores her teas for purchase in bags on the shelf, and not the nice zip-tight airtight bags. I purchased Lapsang Souchong, and found that it was stale upon the first cup. She has a wide variety of tea, but I wouldn't recommend anybody who is looking for a fresh cup to shop here. I was expecting a nice relaxing place to chat about tea, perhaps pick up some new information, and to find a local shop to get things we do not carry in the tea shop I work in.

      Oh, and you'd be lucky to find her open, even when her hours are posted. She seems to take many breaks...

      Elaine's offers many varieties of loose leaf tea and tea items in her shop. We had lunch here a couple years ago. The food was simple. Our tea was served in press pots. She is very friendly and happy to share her knowledge of tea. I have stopped several times since just to to shop.

      Sample of tea distributed at beginning that was good. But tea ordered with meal weak, especialy chai-rather disappointing for a tearoom. The lunch plate was filling and well presented. The soup (tomato alfredo)quite tasty. Music subdued, room bright and cheery.

      I adored my time here. My first visit to this tea house was with family as a surprise and I have been in love ever sense. Whenever I need to find just the right tea, discover a new tea, or just relax I am certain to take a trip to this tea house for a good time.

      set up a tea for a group and was embarrased that the price quoted over the phone was not what we were charged after the tea. Was promised a talk on tea for the ladies and never had that either. The food was tasty though. Not a very friendly atmosphere, and not very accomodating for a group. Was so dissapointed, had to find other tea houses for our group of Mothers. sorry

      Hello, we visited Elaine's tea shoppe to celebrate a birthday and we were not disappointed. Very nice selection of tea, lunch selection was limited but very tasty (chicken salad was yummy) and, of course, the teas were wonderful, we all picked a different one and sampled each others and service was wonderful. We were all very relaxed after our time at Elaine's and decided this was a great way to spend a birthday outing. We plan on doing a tea basket for a fundriaser and we will be back.

      I love the food and tea. But the music I can't stand. I am not into new age and that is not what a tea room should be playing. If it wasn't for the music I would go back.

      What a warm exquisite shop! I walked in not knowing what to expect and found such a wide variety of teas to choose from. Elaine is knowledgeable and introduced me to some of her personal blends. The Blackberries and Cream & Rasberry Truffle are my favorites! Not to mention the 'Unwrinkle Me' blend of white teas. After a couple of weeks, I've already noticed a difference in my skin. The mystical atmosphere lends a serenity that calms the nerves instantaneously. Elaine's Tea Shoppe is beacon on a cold rainy day.

      This tea room is very small--three or so tables. Difficult for a private conversation. Tables are right on top of each other, very limited menu choices. I would purchase loose tea if I'm in the neighborhood--not a large selection. I wouldn't make a special trip.
