    Delightful afternoon at Jacqueline's Tea Room. Delicious scones, tasty sandwiches and yummy sweets accompany refills of wonderful tea. A must do if you are in Freeport.

    We loved this place! Great little tearoom with art on the walls which was for sale. The tea sandwiches in our Afternoon Tea service were lovely. The apple scones to die for! Our desserts were tasty and nicely presented.

  • Tea and Sympathy

    

    We had tea for two which featured a nice selection of finger sandwiches including egg salad, chicken, cucumber and tuna. Scones were plain but good and the two cakes and the cupcake were good as well. This tearoom is very small and noisy, so don't expect any elbow room or a private conversation with your friends.

  • Alice's Tea Cup, Chapter I

    

    We went to Alice's to have afternoon tea service since we were in New York on business. Very disappointing. The place was very noisy with children screaming and poor acoustics. We asked three times for ice for our room temperature water before we finally got it. They brought us the wrong scones and the wrong dessert. They did finally bring the correct food. You choose two sandwiches and three scones plus two pots of tea, if you have the tea service for two people. We chose the curry chicken and ham and cheese. The sandwiches were very dry, which could have been made a tad better if they put mustard or mayo on the ham sandwich, and more mayo in the chicken. We chose pumpkin, and fruit scones which were fruity but again dry. There were cookies that seemed store bought and not soft and chewy but in fact..dry. The Mocha cake that we chose for the sharing dessert, guess what...dry and crumbly. Cost $45. We just could not recommend this one.

  • New Leaf Tea Room & Gift Shoppe

    

    We stopped at this lovely looking tearoom whic is located in a house setting and were excited to try another tearoom. As you enter, there is a lovely little gift shop area and then beyond that is the tearoom which seats several guests in three roooms. The setting and atmosphere was just lovely. We ordered tea from a small list of teas and were presented with, as many tearooms do, a small pot with a strainer to place over our cups since they peave the tea leaves in for us to deal with. The leaves just sit there and the tea gets bitter as you pour another cup. The food was good and filling, no complaints here. The real issue: When the small pot that they served me was empty, I asked to try a pot of another type of tea. The expression on the waitress's face changed from a slight smile to the strangest look I've ever seen and it was obvious to both me and my friend. We commented to each other that it appeard that she didn't want to make me a second pot of tea. Upon her reluctant return with the second pot, she indicated very firmly that their policy is that just one pot of tea comes with their Afternoon Tea service. I can tell you that I was completely taken aback by her attitude and comment, since I have visited hundreds of tearooms and have never experienced what I had on my visit to this one. There was a large group of ladies, about twenty or so in the other room and I wondered if the servers would allow these ladies refills, or if they also told them that there is a one pot limit per person! If I lived in the area, I'd never return just for that reason and no matter how lovely the setting, if the server has this attitude and the policy is that they will serve only one pot of tea and a small one at that, I'd never return. On this particular trip, we visited three tearooms and this one will be memorable in a negative way. It's not just about the food and setting, it's also about attitude.

  • Cosy Cupboard Tea Room

    

    I discovered this cozy little tea house through teamap.com while on a recent trip to PA. Everything about The Cozy Cupboard is enchanting. The decor is warm and inviting. The tea was very well prepared and the tea sandwiches artistically arranged on the floral Royal Albert china plates. I indulged in the scrumptious Iced Poppy scone and decadant chocolate mousse. Both James Howard, the proprietor and his son Vinnie were welcoming, attentive and engaging. My only regret is that I'm from the Boston area and can not return as often as I would like. This tea house is a 'must do'.
