The service at Spot of Tea is amazing! I was having a terrible day and our waitress, Niki, was so gracious and kind. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who needs a little comfort food and a friendly face :)

I ate lunch at Spot of Tea and was impressed at how well the servers accommodated our large group and tight schedule. Though the food was nothing to get excited about, I would not hesitate to return.
