As the owner of the Wilmington Tea Room, I can honestly say that this place is a tough act to follow! It has been awhile since I had the opportunity to visit, but I would certainly recommend the Calabash Garden Tea Room to any and all of my customers. I was there with friends and family (including my then 18 month-old daughter) on a Saturday afternoon. Even the husbands enjoyed the event. :) I don't really keep up with this site as often as I probably should, but in light of a few recent reviews, I just wanted to add my 'two cents.' Your #1 rank is well-deserved, and I hope to have the chance to stop by again soon!
