      Small, quaint tea room. Reservations recommended on Saturday. There were several parties the day I went and the help was a little overwhelmed.

      This is the most charming Teahouse I have ever been in. Nothing can surpass this. The variety of teas took up the whole page on the menu. The food was so tasty, and beautifully prepared. I have taken several friends there. Each one has told me the same thing. They have never experienced such a charming place. And the owner treats everyone there as if they were VIPs. She is always there to be sure your tea pot is still warm enough and if you need anything. Can you tell that I LOVE this place? I am going to join FACEBOOK just to pass this on. Sincerely, B.G.

      This lovely tearoom is my favorite. The ladies are friendly, they have lots of teas to choose from and the menu is great. I always bring friends & family here!

      I was delighted with this tea parlor a few years back when the original owner ran the place. They tied up stacks of sandwiches with ribbons and the variety of food was amazing (I still remember this one carrot sandwich that was fantastic). Based on those memories, I booked a reservation for my family and expected to show them a great time. We were sorely disappointed. The staff was not accommodating at all about where we could sit (we were a big party, you would think they would be delighted that we were giving them business) and all of the treats were those that I could have sampled at Costco. I didn't see any sign of the original owner (I forget her name; she had red hair and used to be a hairdresser before she opened up the tea parlor), so I don't know what's going on and why the business seems to have gone downhill. Don't get me wrong, the place is still cute, but the food was ugh and the service was blah. We have never returned and I had to apologize to my parents and siblings for putting them through that miserable experience.

      Make a reservation before going. I showed up with out one even though they still accommodated me when I arrived they did make a comment about checking to see if there are enough scones before they sat us. Friendly service, yummy scones.

      The Enchanted Rose is a gem! The atmosphere is quaint & cozy, the food is wonderful and the service is always friendly. It's the perfect place for a girl's day out!

      Wonderful food! Nice, cozy atmosphere. You gotta try this place! I really enjoyed the tea experience here. My favorit tea parlour was Two a Tea but it's closed now. I think I like this place just as much.

      We enjoyed the quiet, calming atmosphere. You will not leave here hungry - good food and plenty of it! Service was terrific!

      I just had my mother's 85th Birthday Tea Luncheon here on 5/18 for 24 guests. The room size is ideal for this number of people and we had the place to ourselves. I wouldn't change a thing about the food or the service either. It's a winner.

      We absolutely love this tea house. The service was great, the food was great and I love the huge selection of teas to pick from. I always try a different one every time I go. I will most definitely be going back.

      My friend and I had a pretty good time at this particular tea house. She had never done the tea experience before, so she really liked it. The waitress was friendly. The scones were warm and soft. A large selection of tea. The sandwiches were mediocre. The only bad thing was, the food was brought out very slowly, considering we were the only ones there. For the price, an extra scone would have been nice. However, I would come back again.

      This was my first 'tea' experience. I refuse to let this bad experience ruin my hope of enjoying the next one. From everything I have heard, I assumed the food would be home-made. Costo bought cookies, mini eclaires and cream puffs??? The Campbells tomato soup with stewed tomatoes added was dreadful. The mini salad was served in a tiny cheap Correl white bowl, and water came (much later) - in plastic cups. Although the shop had 3 small fans blowing from the top of the shelves, drinking tea in San Dimas can get warm. We all were 'glowing' and not from happiness. Sorry - after browsing on line and seeing pictures of different tea houses, this one lacks ambiance. One more thing - no smiles or warmth from the two women running/serving our party. Small and cramped. No wonder we were the only party there from 2-5:30 on a Saturday.

      We visit a new Tea Room every month (or more often) This is definitely of the Victorian 'ilk'. The ambience was very pleasant the food was average or better.. nothing was outstanding, but than nothing was poor. The service was excellent. Our server was the owner's daughter and she was extremely efficient and VERY pleasant. She is an asset to the business. Altho' this is a small shop, we all managed to ALSO find something to purchase...there is a nice little selection of tea items, such as cups, spoons and TEA for sale. She also has a selection of Red Hat items.A nice little tea experience.

      I love this place! I had a birthday tea party a while ago. The decor is beautiful, service was excellent, and the food and tea were delicious. I went here a few other times and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

      A pleasant enough experience, a little cramped but the service was pleasant. The food was average, the scones were more like tops of muffins than true scones. The sandwiches were so-so and the desserts were store bought Pepperidge Farm cookies and Costco cream puffs. They did include a chocolate covered strawberry which was nice. The soup was the best part. It's a nice enough tea experience if you are in the area but because of the the food & price, I wouldn't make a trip out of my way. Also, this is listed as a 'British' tea house on teamap...I think that is a mistake, it is more Victorian than true British. If you are looking for a British experience (food and service)try the British Emporium in Upland, if you are looking for great food at a Victorian tea room, try Two a Tea in Glendora.

      I have mixed feelings about this tea room. The food was good and the atmosphere of the shop pleasant enough but the owner wasn't as gracious as I have seen in other establishments.

      I visited the Enchanted Rose with my mother, who had never been to a tea room before. It was a wonderful first trip for us both, and I expect we'll be back many more times, with friends and relatives in tow! The ladies were wonderful; very warm and charming. The flavor combinations of the food were surprisingly good [we loved the pineapple/pecan sandwiches and the pimento cream cheese]. The tea was delicious and warm, and the hostess was very patient in explaining the selection to us. Our plates were served and taken away promptly, with minimal fuss. The decor is both charming and elegant, and we both loved the idea that we could wear hats back to our table. It was like stepping back into our childhood to play tea. The hostess was even so kind as to take a poloroid of us to commemorate our visit! Our fellow diners [a Red Hat Society] were fun and very companionable. Afterwards, there is plenty of boutique and antique shopping nearby to keep yourself occupied for a few hours. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable experience; one that my mother and I will both treasure. Thank you!

      I've been to this tea room several times and have never been disappointed. This is by far my favorite. The food is excellent and I rate most other tea rooms based on what I've had here. Looking forward to another visit soon.

      I HAVE BEEN TO THE ENCHANTED ROSE MANY MANY TIMES AND HAVE ALWAYS HAD A ENCHANTING TEA. THE DECORUM IS BEAUTIFUL WITH NICE GIFT ITEMS AT REASONABLE PRICES. THE TEAS WERE MANY VARIETIES WITH DECAF CHOICES INCLUDING ICED TEA. THE SANDWICHES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FRESH AND DELICIOUS AND PRESENTED ON A TIERED DISPLAY. (I ALWAYS ASK FOR A SECOND PINEAPPLE/PECAN ON HAWAIIAN BREAD).THE SALAD IS EXCEPTIONALY GOOD WITH RASBERRY VINEGARETTE, WALNUTS.MANDARIN ORANGES AND FANCY GREENS(DELICIOUS. TERRIFIC SOUPS TOO. THEY HAVE A WIDE SELECTION OF DESSERTS SOME HOMEMADE (MY FAV). THE STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND THE SERVICE IS GREAT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TEA HOUSE YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE HUNGRY. THEY DO KNOW ME BY NAME!!! GIFT CERTIFICATES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE THATS A PLUS ONE OF MY FAVORITE GIFTS TO GIVE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT WHOM EVER RECEIVES THE CERTIFICATE WILL HAVE AN ENCHANTING TIME......
