I adore The Joy Garden!! I have visited several tea rooms in the area and The Joy Garden is my favorite for decor, ambiance, service and yummy tea! After being overwhelmed by the charm of the conservatory and surrounding gardens, we were even more taken aback by the kindness or our hostess. The variety of teas was astounding and the ones we tried were all delicious! The gift shop was full of charming items at very reasonable prices. If you are looking for a serene, comforting place to enjoy a delicious lunch, I highly recommend the Joy Garden.
I have been to the Front Porch Tea Room on a couple of occasions and I absolutely love it! The food is beyond compare, amazingly delicious! Unlike other tea rooms in the area, I left feeling full and satisified. The decor is beautiful and charming. And the gift shop is packed full of (very reasonably priced) 'souvenirs'. I highly recommend the front porch!
