This is my favorite tea spot in Tampa. It's reliably got great food, great service, and best of all can accommodate walk-ins when I haven't thought ahead to reserve. Excellent tea selection, I also like the option of adding soup or salad. The menu also has sandwiches in case your hubby decides to join you and doesn't want a traditional tea.
My mother-in-law took me to tea here, as she knows how much I enjoy tea rooms. We had a very nice lunch. The loose tea was prepared very nicely. When we finished our first pot, we requested another type of tea and were gladly accommodated. The food was good, the scones were warm out of the oven and delicious. The desserts were very good as well. The decor was nice, but a little run down in my opinion. My mother-in-law, however, didn't agree and was very happy with the decor. I thought it could be 'fancied up' a bit. I probably won't go back, as there are others in the area I prefer more.
