A timeless and smartly done experience. The staff and Kathy are generously welcoming and gracious. You will feel as if you are having tea with close friends. Do not miss the opportunity to spend an afternoon with the ladies at Calabash Gardens. You'all wish you had discovered them sooner.

We love going to tea and this place is one of the better places. There are different levels of tea service you can order: A cream tea which is scones and fruit, a light tea which includes tea sandwiches and fruit, or the Ultimate Tea which is a four course tea service. You must make reservations if you are going to have any of the tea services as they make only what they need for the day. The Calabash Garden Tea Room is set among other little shops which look like cottages. When we walked in we were greeted by the owner who took pride in her little establishment. At the table were china plates, a cup and saucer, as well as a water glass painted with flowers. On top of that water glass was a lemon squeezer in the shape of a bird. Very pretty and unusual. Our server went over the ... (more)

Calabash Garden is exceptional. by far the best tea room I've ever been to. Wonderful presentation, an abundance of teas to choose from, delicious food, whimsical atmosphere, etc. Today I enjoyed the house blend (Apricot Melange). it paired well with all of the sandwiches and the pineapple coconut scone. I also sampled a cup of the Lemon Chiffon Cake tea. It was delicious! A wonderful dessert tea. I enjoyed it so much, I ended up purchasing some to take home with me. Once again, another wonderful experience at the Calabash tea room. can't wait to go back.

Visited Calabash Tea Garden this afternoon and enjoyed the ultimate tea immensely. I had the cucumber mint tea, and it was absolutely delightful! The perfect summer blend. Sandwiches were delicious. my scone was pineapple coconut and it was divine! Finished with an assortment of desserts that were 'truly scrumptious,' as they say. Have visited the tea room multiple times and have never once been disappointed. A lovely experience that I highly recommend.

We have been to half a dozen tea rooms in several states. The Calabash Garden Tea Room is by far the best. Everything was just perfect from the beautiful setting, to the soothing background music, to the service, and of course the food. The tea itself was excellent with about eighty different choices. We had the ultimate tea which included tea, salad, scones, tea sandwiches, and desert. We added the tomato soup which was fantastic. If you have the chance to go to this wonderful tea garden by all means go!!

We love visiting tea rooms when we explore vacation spots. We saw this one on the internet and decided to make a reservation for the Ultimate Tea. Everything was spectacular - the tomato soup was great, the salad wonderful and the tray of sandwiches, scones and desserts incredible! They accommodated our dietary restrictions without any issues as well. The atmosphere was exactly what I love in a tea room. A huge range of teas to choose from will keep you coming back to try them all. We will definitely want to come back and highly recommend a visit for anyone.

Enjoyed this unique and cute tearoom with my two granddaughters and a friend in December 2015. Would definitely enjoy returning in the future. The pumpkin Apple soup was delicious as well as the scones, sandwiches and pastries! Lots of choices of tea to choose from. I would recommend calling for a reservation.

The assortment of delightfully delicious sandwiches include both traditional and non-traditional. Everything about Calabash Garden Tea Room is first rate and top-notch.

Wide variety of black, green, white, herbal and other teas, over 70 to choose from. Won't restate all the praises others have shared. it was a delightful place. My mother in law and I enjoyed it. Good food although I had hoped for a a bit heavier mini sandwich such as a chicken or tuna salad. Delicious food, delicious tea, attentive service, attractive typical tea house decor with cute gift items available for purchase. We will return and recommend to others.

Two friends from PA and OH had the luncheon at this very refined tea room today. We were greeted and taken to the hat and boa room where we chose a hat from a wide variety. Lots of teas to choose from, salad with Kathy's homemade dressing, excellent 3-tiered tea tray that included finger sandwiches, scones, and decadent desserts. The atmosphere was charming down to the chandelier made with teacups and saucers. Friendly service added to our enjoyable lunch.

A lovely tea room in a quaint little cottage. Decor is lovely with lots of pretty gifts and items for sale. Food items of dainty, delicious sandwiches, scones and desserts are very attractively displayed. Even though the servings appear small, there is plenty of food to make a full meal. Lots of varieties of teas to choose from. Servers are friendly and service is elegant - you feel like you're the lady of the manor being catered to. And the price is very reasonable compared to some other tea rooms. Definitely someplace I will return to whenever I'm in the area. If you enjoy high tea, go to Calabash Garden - you will not be disappointed.

I went down to the 'Bash to visit my best friend's mom. She took us to the Calabash Tea Room, and I was so excited. There were hats and boas for customers to wear, everything was just beautiful. I had a hard time deciding on what tea I wanted because there were so many to choose from, but our host helped me pick out the right one for me. I drank the whole pot! The food was AMAZING! I loved everything about it. From the presentation, to the taste, to lasting fullness. I was not disappointed at all. I even bought some tea and scones to bring back to Jersey. Kathy is a delight to talk to. I could tell that she really loves what she does, and that she cares about the experience her customers receive. The Calabash Garden Tea Room is definitely on my must visit list when I go back down.

I have been to the Tea Garden several times and every one of those experiences have been wonderful. I tend to take girlfriends there when they visit and have the ultimate tea - very impressive. Almost too pretty to eat. LOL. And the homemade scones ... yum. The selection of tea is abundant and everyone that I've personally tried has been delicious. My hubby and I were there on Sep 30 and had the salad with a half sandwich (turkey and brie). Perfect amount and oh, so good. I don't know how Kathy comes up with her delectable recipes, but we love them. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. The decor is whimsical and there are even hats/boas for guests to where while enjoying their tea parties.

What a lovely experience! From the tea to the food to the ambience and the staff, if you're anywhere near this tearoom it's worth the drive! It was well worth the one hour trip. We had the ultimate tea, with the tearoom's signature tomato bisque soup and special salad dressing. Not to mention the special sandwiches and moist homemade scones. Sure to delight, with a selection of hats and accessories to add to your experience!

Wow What an amazing time we had at this Tea Room ! The STaff and Service is great but..... the food !!!!!!!! What can I say the Scones melt in your mouth it was a white chocolate lavender . The tea sandwiches so creative one of them was called a Thanksgiving Everyday and it was Thanksgiving dinner explosion in your mouth ! turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce all in this neat little bite size sandwich. Another sandwich I loved was the summer BLT tea sandwich which was so uniquely presented and also delicious .........the sweets are perfect from the chocolate dipped strawberry and petite cupcakes with little rosettes on top ...with a perfect pot of tea. I can't wait to go back when my Mom is in town.

This tearoom never disappoints. The tomatoe soup that starts the ultimate tea is my favorite. This time a strawberry soup was an option and it was delicious as well. We loved the Thanksgiving sandwich and of course the scones. We Celebrated a special birthday and it was perfect from start to finish. Can't wait to go again.
