I have been to this tea room on 3 separate occasions and have had enjoyable, relaxed experiences each time. The first time I visited was for my birthday. I and a friend in a wheelchair celebrated the occasion. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive; they accommodated my friend's special needs cheerfully and professionally. I had the high tea with a pot of Russian mocha tea and a pot of chai. Both teas were delectable. The food was excellent and filling. I especially liked the scones with Devonshire cream and the dessert. My friend enjoyed the meal and his oolong tea; he needed a doggy bag for some of the desserts. The second time I visited was for breakfast. I especially enjoyed this meal. The frittata and the quiche really hit the spot. The Irish breakfast tea was perfect with the meal. My final visit was on a Sunday for a pot of tea. The tea room was hosting an event later that day; the place opened a half hour early to accommodate guests before they closed for the Red Hat Society shindig. The staff was particularly friendly and solicitous; I didn't feel rushed at all. I had a pot of Irish Breakfast followed by a pot of English Breakfast. The former tea was a bit bitter;I liked the Irish Breakfast better the first time I tried it at breakfast. The English Breakfast tea was divine. I love the ambience of this tea room; the decor is whimsical and the farmhouse is charming. Parking is plentiful. I highly recommend this establishment and look forward to returning soon.
I had the high tea this afternoon and enjoyed every bite of the meal. From soup to dessert, every morsel was fresh and delectable. The owner and waitress were friendly, courteous, engaging, welcoming, and informative. I had a pot of Margaret's Hope, a deliciously floral black tea, with the soup, salad, tea sandwiches, and scones; the waitress recommended a white tea with dessert. It was perfect. The table was tastefully set with China and a lace tablecloth; the restaurant's decor was an anglophile's and monarchist's dream. Tilly's is a great way to spend the afternoon. It is an Oasis of elegance, quality, and serenity in a 21st century sea of abrasiveness, unmannerliness, narcissism, and instantaneous gratification.
