  • Wisteria Tea Room & Cafe


    Went here the first time a few days after Mother's Day to celebrate with my mom. I've been to several tea rooms, including some owned by British transplants and have found this to be the best I've been to for all around service and food. I called to make a reservation as we were doing the Royal tea and although they took my reservation, was pleasantly surprised to find they are already ready for full teas. I've never been to a tea room that accomodates that without reservation. I can find any complaints at all. The place is renovated very nicely and VERY clean. Looks more like you are in someone's beatiful home than a restaurant. Owner introduced herself and was always available and present. Our server was knoweldgeable and super nice/friendly. Wait time was perfect for everything. No rushing, as you would hope for for a leisurely tea but not forgotten about or left waiting/wanting for anything. The location is close to a local business district and I have a feeling that if you were popping in for a quick lunch (quiche, salad) the service would be very efficient for that too. For tea I had jasmine green, which I get every time I'm at a tea room and it was very good. My mom had a mango rose mix and said it was the best tea she has ever had in her life and is in fact still talking about it. It came with raw sugar, which was nice-I think I'd like cutesy sugar cubes as well just because I'm such a traditionalist with tea. Food was scrumptious. EVERYTHING-and I mean everything is homemade, right down to sandwich bread and salad dressings. The royal tea came with a salad or soup. I got the salad which was one of the best I've had at a lunch-with soft cheese and pecans dried cranberries and the creamy cilantro dressing was YUMMMMMY! My mom had a tortilla soup that she really enjoyed. Then they came out with the tiered tea tray which was beautifully arranged. I like savory tea treats best and this was by far their speciality. Other tea rooms I've tasted the old run of the mill cumcumber sandwiches or deviled ham which generally dissapoints. Not at Wisteria. Their was a generous wedge of warm artichoke spinach quiche which was the best I'd ever had with huge pieces of artichoke in it. We also had YUMMY version of cucumber sandwich on homemade star shaped bread with boursin cheese and these awesome crostini type prociutto & brie sandwiches and little phyllo cups filled with chicken salad. SO good! The tidbits are teensy and at first glance don't look like too much but my gosh we are eaters and could barely finish our tray. For sweets we had creme brulee pots, toffee brownies, key lime pies, and then a full size scone each with devonshire cream and jam. I read somewhere that you have to ask for the jam (I guess they don't think you need it b/c the scones are sweet) but I don't think a tea scone is complete unless it has the jam and cream all dalloped on top. We had a lemon blueberry scone that day which was perfect and it was the BEST Devonshire cream I've ever had. My mom and I were actually just sneaking spoonsfuls (and dipping fresh strawberries too) because it was just that good. All in all-I was VERY impressed. The owner(s) obviously really care and enjoy what they do and do it very well. I'm so going back to try the savory tea next. Thank you for a lovely experience for my mom. It was a surprise and my dad emailed me later that night special, just to tell me how much she loved her gift.
