My daughter and I tripped across a review for this establishment while looking for a place that served afternoon tea. We are of British heritage and love a nice tired plate of sandwiches, sweet treats and of course scones with jam and cream. While we were not served with double Devon clotted cream, it was still nice. The ambience is... More

I visited The Tea Party for brunch with friends. The staff were friendly and the place is cute and cozy. I had the tofu scramble, which was just the right amount of food. I also got a vegan chai brownie to go... very delicious! My tea was weak, though, and my friends' latte and chai latte were also lacking flavour.... More

My wife and I both ordered the Tea Party Burger, a house made red lentil patty with curry flavor served on a flavorful bun top with tomato, caramelized onions and spinach. The patty was excellent and the combination very interesting. We did not use all of the bread because it was too much for us so we doggy bagged it... More

We were seated ok, but our server returned 10 mins later to take our order, and 12 minutes later, a pot of tea and the cheese board we ordered arrived. (Maybe they had to run out to the cheese shop?). I dunno, but an explanation would have been nice. Water doesn't take that long to boil.

They open at 10 am for brunch and I had the mushroom and carmelized onion omelette, which was fabulous! Portion was just right but if you are a big eater may consider it on the small side but the price matched the size and both pleased me. Not a large brunch menu but enough, and it is vegetarian. They have... More

I love visiting Tea rooms and was so excited to bring my mom and daughter here. We all regretted coming to this place. Upon entering, it is so hot and muggy in the room with flies all over the place. There were 3 tables unoccupied but we had to wait 13 minutes for the server to clean a table and... More

On short notice my friend and I used a Groupon to have afternoon tea at the Tea Party. We had a reservation for 2:30 although at that time of day the tea room was not any where near full. The tea choice was really extensive and the one we choose was lovely. It was served in a nice china and... More

This picturesque little tea party place makes your childhood tea parties come back to life but with real and delicious food and too many tea selections to chose from. We got the cheese platter to start with but will skip it next time because once all our snacks came we had leftovers. They have a few different tea party options... More

My daughter and I stopped for the Mad Hatter Tea for two (reserve ahead). This is a great meal of sandwiches, scones, veggies/dip, desert and tea all served on one of those tiered plates. The serving size was very decent so it served as a good lunch for both of us. The restaurant is close to all the Ottawa Market... More
