It's unfortunate that ANYONE would rate this tea room below 5 stars. Any negative feedback is absolutely absurd. This tearoom is AMAZING and tops every other tearoom around here. So why waste gas driving 30-40 miles to the Camellia Tea Room in Benicia? The venue is the perfect size, allowing room for special gatherings such as birthday celebrations, baby/bridal showers, etc. If you prefer a more intimate atmosphere, they have tables for two and a LOVELY, gorgeous tea cup booth. The tasteful victorian style brings you into a whole other world. The interior design is phenomenal! Our server is always very friendly and knows her work well. Then there's the tea selection! There are so many different choices. I love the fact that they have a cute fire hydrant tag on each tea pot that labels your tea, that way you don't mix your tea pot with another person's at the same table. I was impressed with how the tea room honored the history of their building by using fire hydrant tags, as it used to be a fire house. Now onto the food. It's delicious! Your course starts off with the best sorbet I have ever had. The scones are baked fresh and served with clotted cream and jelly. Their sandwiches are very filling and flavorful. From the main course to the sweets, everything is top notch. Their presentation of the food really tops it off. Needless to say, dining at Linde Lane is worth EVERY PENNY! So again, why waste time and money driving far to another tea room that doesn't measure up to a delightful Linde Lane experience? If you choose never to return (or go to) Linde Lane, that's your loss! It's nice to see people of all ages and income brackets welcome to enjoy Linde Lane tea room!
