We went with friends for lunch. What a pleasant experience. Located on the waterfront, and definitely UK oriented, we were seated at a window table. Seats are backed with individualised decorating depicting different counties of England. Three of us had cream tea and one had Spinach and Herb Quiche with Caesar Salad. Cream Tea is served all day, and is... More

Great food, wonderful ambiance, it was a tad cold in the restaurant today but the hot perfectly blended tea warmed us up. Scones are amazing! It was worth the drive from Toronto!

Enjoyed the soup of the day and a quiche, it was very nice. Had a scone and cup of tea for dessert. Was a bit disappointed that the strawberry jam... More

Although the food is always good, I agree it can be pricey. But the lunch combo of half a tuna melt with soup is great value! Tends to fill up quickly as there are only about a dozen tables, so earlier is better. Friendly staff, fabulous view, overall very pleasant ambiance.

Firstly you notice the cleanliness as soon as you walk in, the waitress was really attentive and on the ball, good customer service. Food was delicious, we had high tea. My only complaint would be the price for the quantity, which is why I likely won't be back. It was delicious don't get me wrong, just a little pricey for... More

Quaint small Tea room on the Gravenhurst waterfront, overlooking Lake Muskoka. Great for English afternoon tea, with scones, jams, cakes and finger sandwiches, Affable service and nice price point.

If you enjoy Tea Rooms you will enjoy the Blue Willow Tea Room located on the Muskoka Bay Wharf in Gravenhurst. We had a window seat with a million dollar view of Lake Muskoka. Lovely blue coloured Willow China. Had a pot of tea and cranberry scone that was very enjoyable. Highly Recommended.

The Blue Willow Tea Shop is a quaint tea shop in Gravenhurst. We had a very pleasant dining experience. We ordered afternoon tea for my Mom's birthday and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The food was made to order and there were modifications based on food allergies. The serving staff checked with us consistently to ensure that everything was going well.... More
