While this was my first time at this tea house, it is not my first time to any tea house. I will not be going back to this one as my experience was less than satisfying. It is very very small and the only window air conditioner in the room kept going off as the Circuit Breaker kept tripping--thus making for an uncomfortable experience. Also, they brought out the 3 tier tray with dessert on it then brought out the quiche which they 'forgot'. I arrived 15 minutes early and even though 3 of their 5 tables were open, I was told I could not be sat until 1 pm--even though no one else was going to occupying those tables. It was a less then enjoyable experience. I definitely did not get what I paid for nor what their menu states for their 'most expensive' tea. Also if you use the ladies room, note that they keep all the dirty dishes in there...Think before going her.
Hi Sherry! I was surprised to read this today. I tried to apologize profusely for the circuit breaker problem on Saturday...not much I could do about it then, but try to make everyone as comfotable as possible. With the breaker acting up, it did affect the oven operation...we fresh cook so there was a delay in baking the quiches, which is why yours was a little tardy...it normaly comes out with the tier, which yes it is filled with all the menu items..top tier always has the desserts, that is a tradtional service. and you DID receive the full menu as described, including, I might add, your special requests for items with no seeds or nuts, which of course took extra time to prepare. And I am sorry you had to wait to be seated at the reserved time. The other tables you efer to were not set and ready for the 1pm seatings...we also had a 9 person party coming at 1pm as well, so we have to plan for seating to accomodate the numbers. As for your coment about the dirty dishes...shame on you! There were and never have been diry dishes left in our bathroom. Becuase the building is nearly 100 yrs. old, storage is at a minimum, so notneeding a bathtub for use, I installed stanless steel shelves so I could store china used for off site catering...it is enclosed by three curtains, obviously you opened them and peeked inside, but not closely enough. I'm sorry we won't be seeing again soon.
