  • Mrs. Hardesty's Tea Room


    I visit Mrs. Hardesty's Tea Room as often as I am able when in Harrisonburg. The tea room itself is bustling with indoor and outdoor seating. Inside is small, but sunny and cheerful, and is decorated in a cute teapot theme. The variety of china is fascinating and each place setting is different. The outdoor area is beautifully designed with umbrellas, plantings, nice hardscaping, and a fountain (I think I saw one.). My favorite item on the menu is their 'regular' garden salad, which is not regular in any respect! It has fruit, like strawberries and blueberries, with red onions to complement, and a great homemade raspberry (?) dressing. Add a sandwich and you are stuffed. The Earl Grey Cream Tea is my favorite--but I can't make it at home nearly as well as they do. I normally take home four scones, which come in an array of yummy varieties. The clotted cream is a MUST!! I only wish the single pot of tea was unlimited--I could drink two pots in one sitting!

  • Miss Minerva's Tea Room & Gift Shop


    Coming from all reaches of the state, my grandmother, aunts, great-aunts, cousins, and I gathered in Culpeper at Tea, Lace & Roses as a central location to celebrate my 43rd birthday, and to reunite last year! We essentially dominated the front room, happily laughing, oohing and aanhing at the teapots, china, decor, the petit finger sandwiches, and each other! The Tea Room is decorated in an Antique Victorian motif that delights. We visited their back room where they supply patrons with hats, feather boas, and lace gloves, with an antique vanity to admire our transformations. It was like a big-girl's fantasy tea party--and we just loved it. The bamboo tea was exceptional and the scones were to die for! I will be sure to stop in again when in town, and thanks for making my birthday such a memorable, special and unique experience.
