I have been to a number of tea rooms in New Jersey, out of state, and abroad. The Queen Victoria Tea Room in Toms River was absolutely lovely. The sandwiches were delicious, the orange cream scone was fabulous, and the sweets (carrot cake and miniature apple pie) were very good. The table was set beautifully in a lovely dining room. The only recommendation would be to remove the loose tea from the teapot before serving. The first cup of tea was great; however, subsequent cups were too strong, as the tea was over-steeped. All in all I had a very pleasant experience and look forward to returning soon. This is one of Toms River's best kept secrets!
