We had a wonderful visit to Miss Minerva's last Friday. We took the train down from the Washington, DC area, as a special outing on a day off from school, and it was completely worth the trip. The food, tea, and service were as good as in any tearoom I've encountered. Though our group featured six children, including a two-year-old, the lovely staff made us feel not only tolerated, but welcome and appreciated. The other patrons burst into applause as our daughters emerged from the back room dressed in fancy hats and jewelry! The current timing of Amtrak trains makes this a very easy outing from Washington for lunch and/or tea, with time to explore the rest of historic downtown Culpeper afterwards. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for your kind words. We truly enjoyed your visit and talking with you and the other mothers, and the children were delightful and so polite. We were so happy you all could come for tea, and we look forward to your next visit.
