  • Miss Minerva's Tea Room & Gift Shop


    I booked a private function for my friend's birthday party. The guests were so thrilled to be invited to tea that we needed 2 servings. Pat and her staff were extremely flexbible and helpful in accomodating everyone who to wanted to come. I showed up early to decorate and they were very warm and helpful. The menu: chicken salad on croissant, roast pork with tomato pesto spread on a biscuit, cucumber with herb spread, date filled with goat cheese, mushroom filled with artichoke and parmesan, sweet and sour meatballs, cherry scones with clotted cream (the best thing ever!) and jam, and almond pound cake. In a word, delicious. The quality and quantity of food was impressive. We ate buffet style and Pat kept the buffet table filled. No one went hungry! A couple of kids in our group had the 'wee tea'. I had the fortune to sit across from one of these little ones and watched her eyes light up with it was served to her. She loved it. We had pots of tea on each table. I know nothing of tea, so the fabulous staff picked it out for us - a blue eyes tisane tea and a peach rooibos tea. Both naturally decaffinated and delicious. One of our guests prefers black teas and when I let the staff know, she was brought her own pot, which she loved. Service was impeccible. As for the tea pots, I absolutely fell in love with them. There were tea pots and other very attractive knick knacks for sale at great prices. The room at the back had hats and beads and everyone loved dressing up. All in all, it was an exceptional time, at a great price, in a fabulous location. Miss Minerva's truly is the #1 tea room in Virginia. And I see why - it's the best! I can't wait to come back.
