Miss Minerva's is an experience you need to have. Located in the old downtown, you couldn't ask for a better atmosphere. The staff are the loveliest little ladies you've ever met. The moment you walk into the tea room to the time you leave, you've made friends and satisfied yourself with the best tea in town. I highly recommend you visit this little jewel if you haven't already

My review of Miss Minerva's is long overdue, my wife and I have been enjoying teas purchased from the shop for many years. The tea selection is as excellent as it is varied, there is something here for every taste and mood. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is traditional, you won't be disappointed! As a tea purchaser, I don't often eat at Miss Minerva's but when I have the soups are always delicious and the orange coolers are a definite treat that pair well with any tea. I highly encourage you to visit. If you live in the area and drink tea at home on a regular basis it will soon become your go-to for the drink we can't live without.

My best friend and I visit at Miss Minerva's twice a year to celebrate our birthdays and catch up with one another --- we began this tradition a number of years ago when Miss Minerva's was located at its old location --- so we have dined here numerous times. As always, the food is excellent and the wait staff most cordial. The seasonal scones are always a delicious start to the full English tea that we always enjoy. The tea selection is a wonderful variety --- have enjoyed every selection I've made over the years. Very nice atmosphere with numerous "tea" related items to purchase. Several adjacent shops are also fun to browse and visit. Spend the afternoon in Culpeper -- you won't be disappointed. However, Miss Minerva's remains a highlight and worth the trip.

I have been to Miss Minerva's twice and both times were fantastic! The tea room and shop are so inviting. All the tea knick knacks (cups, strainers, cute tea pot cozies, books, etc) that are for sale and decoration are on point. Super cute and functional! Amazing variety of loose leaf teas both to enjoy during a tea party and/or to purchase as to stir your memories while you're sitting at home enjoying a cup :) Our server, Savannah, was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Monica also came out to greet us with her bubbly and friendly self! The food is terrific, good variety of goodies (scones, tea sandwhiches, pound cake, etc) and the clotted cream is the best!! I highly recommend checking this tea room out. You can pop in or make a reservation Sit back, relax and enjoy some yummy tea and treats!

On a recent day trip to Sperryville and Culpeper, I stopped in to check out the tearoom, as all the tea rooms in Fredericksburg are closed. The owner greeted me with a free scone and some clotted cream to try. She gave me take home menus of their food and tea selections. I did not stay to eat as my husband does not kike tea rooms. Cannot imagine why. He thinks they are for women only. Anyway, my daughter and I LOVE tea rooms and ate at Miss Minervas at their other location some years back. It was delightful, delicious and we are going to drive back to Culpeper as soon as my recent surgery is completed, so we can enjoy the ambience and wonderful food. I am so looking forward to this road trip with my daughter. Thank u to the owner Miss Pat, for the wonderful scone she gave me, just for stopping in. We will see you soon, hopefully within 2 weeks. I recommend Miss Minervas to all who love Tea Rooms and their cuisine.

This is one of my favorite Tea-Rooms! The atmosphere is wonderful! The decor is splendid and adds to the relaxation experience. You will feel likeyou are having high tea in elegant style! There are many hats for you to fancy, teas and tea sundries are for sale. The scones and devonshire clotted cream is wonderful. I had the full three tier tea and it was a wonderful experience!

Always a lovely experience. I can get my husband to join me because it isn't over the top feminine. Food and service is always excellent. You can't come to Culpeper without stopping by Miss Minerva's. Our friends love to go and enjoy a good cup of tea and scones when they visit.
