Approximately 4 weeks ago, my daughter and I enjoyed a very tasteful, beautifully presented tea experience in a warm and lovely environment. The several course tea began with a refreshing pomegranate drink; included a delicious fruit medley of cold soup, a fresh salad with flavorful dressing,a variety of tea sandwiches, yummy scones, and fabulous desserts. The food was definitely worth the long wait (approx. 45 min.); but I would have preferred that my daughter have something to eat during the soup and salad portion of my meal. However, the pleasant atmosphere, attentive staff (particularly in accommodating my daughter's peanut allergy), and relaxing hot tea, made the wait tolerable. Overall, the experience was fabulous and we will certainly travel again from Harrisburg, PA to Frederick, MD (approx. 60 miles)for a Royal Tea at Serenity Tearoom.
My daughter and I and several friends have had the pleasure to enjoy Olivia's Tearoom over, at least, the last 5 years. The attentive service, relaxing atmosphere,variety of creative yummy finger sandwiches, salads, and desserts are a delight to young and old palates. Children always get an extra treat with a wonderful craft of some kind to complete. In addition, shopping for American Girl Doll clothes and accessories adds to the fun. A visit to this tearoom is a 'must do' experience....
