  • Iris & Ivory Tea House, Cafe and Gift Shop


    I absolutely adore tea rooms and when I found out one was down the road from me, I decided to check it out. The shop was quaint and I thoroughly appreciated all the lovely plants along the windows. It created a very cozy atmosphere. I ordered the 'Casual Tea' with a cup of their broccoli cheddar soup and crumpets for lunch. The tea I ordered was the 'White Blueberry'. The soup wasn't very warm, but the flavor was good. A very light soup, thinner than I am used to but good all the same. The scone (cranberry) had a good flavor, albeit a little dry. The lemon curd and Devonshire cream helped mask that, though. My server(a young man) was quite pleasant and attentive. My experience was nice, but nothing really stood out as 'amazing' for me. Little things here and there could likely be changed to elevate the rating. While small, I always appreciate sugar bowls instead of packets. Likewise I prefer my lemon curd and cream served in bowls. This is partially for aesthetics, but mostly due to needless waste of plastic containers. I found it odd that the tea was served with the leaves still in the strainer. For a green tea this would make it bitter and ruin an otherwise wonderful pot of tea. I am unsure if this is their standard method of serving. As I ordered a white tea, the extra steeping didn't effect the flavor too much. The aroma was wonderfully fruity and reflected the flavor well. It paired fabulously with the bowl of fruit. I'm not sure if I'll go back, but I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a nice, clean cafe in the area.
