I have visited Barbara's tea house several times, this amazing historical tea house 'always' over exceeds my expectations. For several notable reasons: Barbara is the sweetest most accommodating courteous tea house owner I have ever met. My business leads me to travel all over the U.S. as well as Europe, I have yet to taste such unique tea's such as Barbara's special (little secret) blends. I have visited close to 15 tea houses & none compare to the over all experience that one receives at Barbara's tea house. She makes everyone feel so welcome! Her scones & lemon curd are out of this world, the pastries are delicious! Kudo's to Barabara & her wait staff for creating such a welcoming place for all us tea lovers :) We all know that their is some people that will never be satisfied .........'we are' & we LOVE your tea house!
How very disappointing....worse reception and lack of cheer I have ever seen in a tea house. The food lacked presentation & did not taste that great, the portions were beyond small. I Drove 2 hours due to the high reviews I read on this site...BEWARE!!! Horrible experince...their is truly not one thing I could write that was positive about this tea house for the exception that the weather was great! Been to many tea houses, from New England all the way to The Enchanted Rose in San Dimas, thought they had good food and great service however would rate them fair. After experiencing Shakespeare's the Enchanted was wonderful! WHAT A WASTE OF GAS!!!! I would not recommend this place!
