    Located in downtown Wheaton and a block from the Metra train station, this is a great place to sit, visit,or read the papers/book with a cup or pot of tea (mine Earlgrey) and a pastry. Bright,sunny, clean place.

  • Pickwick Society Tearoom Gifts & Antiques

    

    Been coming here for years and it ALWAYS has the best food, staff and items for sale. It is great for a walk in [the tea counter for a quick take out] or a sitmedown. When i have gone in with the granddaughters they are most accomadating to there tastes (whatever the girls age). One is all cucumber sandwiches another only peanut butter{no jam} - no problem. I particularly like to stop in after going through the Frankfort Farmers Market. Just two blocks away it is nice to walk through it shop and/or eat through it and then head to the Pickwick for a sitmedown of tea-scone-soup/fruit plate etc.... AND then head bcak out to shop at the other businesses in town and lst (for me) to the ALways Open for the Sunday papers, milk etc.... However anyone else sees the Pickwick i think it is a lovely place to either start or end the day. 42stars to it. Many thanks.

    Discovered by accident and i am glad i did so. Street parking, near the metra train and a great bookstore across the street. Perfect for me. They sell a small but nice selection of tea equipment and teas, i purchased a electric hot chocolate whipper which turned out to work great. A great sitmedown place. Comfortable chairs. Come in to work with your computer, read the paper/book, or visit. The pastry's they sell were wonderful. Nice staff. Many thanks.

  • Gourmet Junction

    

    Just one block west of Rt. 59 it is barrier free, plenty of street parking, good selection of tea and tea equipment (pots, books, cups&saucers, cookies etc....) for sale. Afternoon tea by reservation (AND well worth it). The shop is great for a quick sitmedown or lunch. There soups are all great! They also sell coffee(s), ice cream, soada pop, jewlry, fancy soup and scone mixes etc... For two years i have had my sister's birthday tea there and they have done a smashing job. For my sisiter they serve her her hot chocolate {her preference} in a pot and they get her birthday cake from the bakery down the street {no outside food brought in, which is normal for most resturants, but they would get it from another licensed bakery and have it beautifully plated and lit with candles when they brought it out - sang Happy Birthday to her too. Nice people, Nice place. Many Thanks to the owners and staff for the quality of food and service.

    I was here July 27, 2011.....THEY HAVE REOPENED under new management. Good food, great earl grey...my favorite. Building not barrier free - three steps up. Metered street parking. Serves lunch, dinner, full tea. There guiche and scones were outstanding. Tea didn't require a reservation. GO and TRY THEM

  • Pinecone Cottage Tea House

    

    I have now been here seven times over 2008/2009. On my own, with my sister's red hatters and for there Thanksgiving sides class. While not overly comfortable on there types of chairs, my size, i think it is a charming place. You are first served, buffett style, a cheese-fruit-cracker course. Then everything else brought out to you. Fresh, tasty, plentiful. Seperately they offer classes on various types of sides, desserts etc. throughout the year. Price for them is reasonable and you get to eat what you make. GO TO THEM, informative and fun.

    Tearoom response:

    Hi Melinda !<BR> <BR> Sorry for the delay, but although the economy has had it's problems, we've been very busy at Pinecone Cottage.<BR> <BR> I just wanted to send a note to let you know how much we appreciated your kind comments. You don't, or maybe I should say you do realize, how much this helps our business.<BR> <BR> We hope to see you soon, and thanks again !<BR> <BR> Pam

  • Tea Upon Chatsworth

    

    Reservations a must. Good free street parking available. I was in California in February and was able to go twice. I smiled when i first stepped in and didn't stop the whole time i was there.It is a gem. I am earl grey but they seemed to have a nice selection available. Food GOOD. Tea pot on the table, no cozy. Good service. They offer special tea parties, i read the flyers. I expect to be back for the cake decorators convention in 2010 and am most looking forward to visiting this tea room. Tea-Upon-Chatsworth you do San Diego proud.

  • Market Tea Room

    

    Located in a huge wearhouse housing an antique mall it was a great find. I was in Las Vegas in February and after finding this place i was able to go twice while there. Both times the food and service were excellant. I am an earl grey person but the tea choices seemed good and varied., The food fresh and plentiful, try the bread pudding and chocolate cake. When in Las Vegas i would go again and i would reccomend it to any one

  • The Windsor Rose English Tea Room

    

    Located in the older part of Mt. Dora with both street and free lot parking. Beautiful old English interior. Great presentation. The first most perfect pot of tea i have had to date. Great sandwiches, scones and sweets. The sponge cake was a treat. This was a fine while i was on vacation. I would (and have) told everyone about it. I have now been twice while down here for convention. The first on my own and the second with family and cake friends. It was perfect both times. Go and enjoy and when you are done walk around the rest of the downtown Mt. Dora area it is also very nice.

    annie's serves just what the name states...lunch, dinner, ice cream (for take out or sit in) and afternoon tea. and they serve it well. located in an old house that is a treasure. there is plenty of free street parking. an easy find. go straight south on western avenue, then east on exchange street and then south on benton for a half block. the front porch is large and is nice to sit out on when it is warm. you can sit out there to eat your ice cream or to have your tea served to you. lunch and dinner are served when open and afternoon tea is served by reservation. the ice cream parlor has some great choices. the interior is beautiful. hard wood floors, fireplace, butlers pantry etc.. as you enter the ice cream parlor is to your right while meals and tea are served in the two rooms to your left. as for the afternoon tea the tea cups and tea pots are lovely. there is a collection of them on the sideboard. cloth napkins and table cloths. tea is a selection of tea bags presented in a sundae dish with a pot of hot water. i had no trouble getting them to put the bags into a pre-warmed tea pot and having the water added that way. the tea food was fresh, tasty, beautifully presented and plentiful. i ordered the afternoon tea for one and got enough food for two people. while the menu is seasonal i got sandwiches, meatballs, scones, cookies, tea cakes, ice cream, chocolate etc.. nice staff. nice owners. clean, bright,cheerful. they expect to open up the back yard / porch area for serving when the weather permits. go you will love it

  • A Girl's Best Friend/Orleans Tea Room

    

    i have now been there five times, in both 2007 and 2008, and it has been good each and every time. it is located in a mix residential and business area. a short drive from the convention center. the exterior is clean but plain. however inside you walk into a rainbow of color. the two front rooms contain clothes, jewlry, purses, fans, hats, etc... for sale. i particular liked the stretch bracelets. the third room, up a couple of stairs and to the left of the entrance, contains the lunch / tea room. lunch is served daily and afternoon tea is by reservation only. the tea choices are severly limited but well made and served in a silver tea set. the full tea was fresh, tasty (i loved the tuna salad, unique flavor) and nicely presented. you are given a choice of tiras to wear, i have my own, and a fan. they gave a lesson in fan etiquite and how to speak southern. after all the tea room has a southern flair is decorated in the new orleans style. the waitree gave some fun entertainment thet i am still smiling about. i enjoyed myself very much and after the first visit i always ordered tea for two and took one back to the hotel. the food was just great whether i had it that night or next morning for breakfast. while i can only get there after an eight hour drive, i live in illinois, i would go again the next time convention is held there and i would recommend it to anyone and i did so at my hotel
