    Their clotted cream is nowhere near authentic, but the scones are still outstanding.

    No wi fi, 4$ for a scone. the theme is all hype and an excuse to overprice everything :\

    really great food and tea. buttermilk scone was delicious. I do have to warn you though that this is not a place you can go quickly. service is very slow, even when all you want is tea and a scone

    Very good scones: pumpkin and caramel, blueberry lemon, triple chocolate. Extensive list of teas and you can take a cup to go if you don't finish your pot of tea. Disappointed by hot chocolate.

    The idea is great, but the execution on ambience is a little iffy. Scones are the best, and they serve them with jam/cream, even to go.

    Carnival Matte is a must have. It'll convert you. Desserts large enough to be shared by 4. Amazing marshmallow Graham cracker creation. Great service. Small place, shuts at 7p. Good for casual dates.

    Get one or two scones of the day (always multiple flavors on the blackboard), and finish all the clotted cream and raspberry preserves. Great for taking little ones ages 3-8. Super kid friendly.

    Not sure what the hype is. $14 sandwich was only ok, worth half the price. Christmas tea was only ok also. Service was ROUGH. Room is dark, no natural light. I'm going to Irving farm.

    Place only one tea order, even if you come with 2, 3, or even 4 people if you plan to drink only one cup. They bring a whole teapot and there's no way one person can finish even a small order. ☕️☕️☕️

    So cute, girly, charming & fun. This place is full of character. Fun to go with your girlfriends. More teas on the menu than I ever knew existed. They also have light bites.
