What a wonderful spring visit to Victorian Parlor with three members of my family! I am always amazed at the service and the quality and quantity of the excellent food here - especially the chicken corn soup which is the best anywhere! Our thanks to Paula, Daryl and all the staff who work so hard to give us a mini-vacation every time we have tea at Victorian Parlor.
Roni, one thing is for sure, you do not leave the Parlor hungry. and it is all flavorful. Always pleased to serve our guests.
I was lucky to share a pre-holiday tea with two friends at this beautiful, new tearoom. The food was superb starting with carrot soup followed by four kinds of sandwiches (very fresh), delicious scones with jam and clotted cream and six kinds of sweets. We sampled two kinds of tea: Holiday Winter Spice and Shenandoah Blue, the house blend, and loved both of them. Julie was gracious and helpful - encouraging us to think about returning for upcoming special events. I will definitely return soon. I highly recommend The Tea Cart.
There is a reason this tearoom is rated #1 in MD. It is evident why every time we are fortunate enough to enjoy tea there. Blanche is a perfect hostess. She really cares about the quality of the food and making her customers happy. She honors requests for vegetarian options. This time we enjoyed a wonderful butternut squash soup, a choice of 3 scones which were all delicious (because we shared to try them all!) and luscious sandwiches including egg salad,traditional cucumber and an herbed tomato cream cheese. Her strawberry tea is especially luscious. We are so grateful that Blanche shares her love of tea with us.
I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday at Joy Garden. The staff made it a very special day with their thoughtfulness and excellent service. The tomato basil soup was the best I've ever tasted. All the food was delicious, but the roasted veggie sandwich and the egg salad were outstanding. I appreciated all the special touches which enhanced my visit to Joy Garden and look forward to returning in November.
