I'ts not a surprise to me that this Tea Room is rated number 2 in NC! I can not imagine what number 1 must be like! I took my mother, husband and neice there after the holidays and was simply in awe...From the greeting at the door by Anna and Trish to Kathy's Secret Garden Dressing, everything was top notch. Kathy's scones are the best I ever tasted and her Tomato Bisque Soup left me wanting another bowl. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed, and I have attended teas in Europe, so trust me, this was as good if not better than any tea I have gone to. And at a most reasonable price! There's a wide variety of savory tea sandwiches that are differnt from anything I have ever tasted. Not your typical fare at all. The desserts are all home made and you can tell. Everything melts in your mouth.And as if the top tier of desserts was not enough, the gals brought out a delightful ice cream that was infused with a wonderful ginger flavor. While we were dining we saw a woman celebrating her 100th birthday, and she was just beaming. The ladies of the Calabash Garden Tea room gave everyone the same warm and friendly service. Kathy made it a point to come out and speak to everyone on a very personal level. I can not say enough about this tea room, truely the 'Hidden Gem' of the beach. I took a copy of her menu home and noticed that she does children's tea parties for a very reasonable price and I intend to book a party there for my grand neice this summer. I know she and her friends will love it as much as we did. If you are in the Myrtle Beach or Calabash area and want to experience this fantastic tea room do not hesitate to make a reservation here. I am sure that this summer will be extremely busy for them as it is becoming so very popular among locals as well as visitors. You will not be disappointed!!
