  • The Dunbar House Tea Shop


    Ah, the Dunbar! I have been going to this tearoom since shortly after they opened in the 1990's. The pleasant, quiet surroundings (even when crowded), the attentive service of Paula and Danielle, and of course the delightful and delicious food keep me coming back over and over throughout the year. For women who have been trying to get their man to go to tea, this is the place. In addition to the Victorian style teas, there are foods more ammenable to robust appetites, such as the savory hot foods and soups, the flavorful sandwiches and sinful desserts. My favorite is the Cumberland Crumpet Melt, but in summer, I indulge in whatever the special board advertises. Hot and cold teas all year round are complemented by fine imported ales as well. Unlike one tearoom that only offers ice cream for dessert, the Dunbar features a dessert table full of freshly baked cakes, pies and bars. Try the Bumbleberry. Chosen as one of the top 100 tea rooms in America, it is the reason I drive past all the faux-famous listings on the North Shore of Boston and head for the Cape for an event worth the drive. This website lists the Dunbar as #3, merely by the number of reviews and the buttons you push. Don't pay attention to those numbers. The Dunbar is #1 in Massachusetts and will be your #1 tea room as soon as you go.
