My sister just posted her own review of our 7/22/06 visit, but she didn't say anything about the atmosphere. The tea and the food was superb, but the special ambience added so much to our lunch. It's not often that we are together with our mom, and to do the 'ladies out to lunch' thing at Teaberry's made it so very special. I just wish we'd thought to dress the part! I highly recommend Teaberry's - A+++!!!
