Went to Swing the Teapot for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is adorable. I love the tea vibe being that I am a tea aficionado. Great tea selection and nice selection of Irish traditional food. My friend and I both had omelettes. The food was good. Nothing to write home about but absolutely acceptable. The Irish soda bread and the brown... More

Had an early lunch on a Wednesday and it was full, several groups waiting for tables. Luckily our party of 6 got seated quickly. Most of us had the Emerald Isle Irish breakfast - cooked to perfection with wonderful black pudding and Irish rashers & sausage. Eggs Benedict and Cajun burger also well received. Some ordered Blue Moon and Guinness... More

Great music venues and very small but great for a cozy home feel for breakfast or lunch - owner is super nice and usually there, the motif is adorable and lots of tea history...old machine presses and so on. Food is great and love seeing local diets or solos playing guitar etc....

I have been here for both breakfast and dinner and have never been disappointed. One of the better establishments for breakfast and a quick bite dinner.

Ok, this is how much I love this place. I was sick with a stomach virus but went anyway. They serve a wonderful breakfast with a nice variety of teas. Everything is delicious so you can't go wrong. I've had the French toast, Omelet, pancakes and the Irish platter. They have a lovely collection of teapots. The tables are wonderful... More

When you travel to a restaurant and four out of six times it is closed due to odd hours or private parties the reviews suffer. The food is good but not great but to be fair above average and the service is generally good but the waitresses all look tired and over-worked. Not sure what the deal is but a... More
