Went there to celebrate Mother's Day. The service (for the holiday) was slow for the holiday (the place was packed), but they were very prompt about filling up coffee and tea. The food was pretty good, and the homemade toast was amazing!

While the food was good, the service was extremely slow and coffee refills? Forget about it.. Nice atmosphere though

I went to the Tea Company this morning (Saturday) at around 10am. The restaurant was not packed, probably about 50% full. As I was alone, I figured I would sit at the counter to make tables available for groups. Apparently this was a foolish mistake on my part. My order was taken by a young male waiter. He brought my...

I stopped in here for a cup of tea and a muffin. It was a rainy, dreary day, and this spot was just perfect for a "pick-me-up"!

I had a great brunch here recently. The Eggs Benedict were some of the best I've ever had. The Hollandaise was creamy and tart, while the eggs were perfectly done...poached to perfection.

The food was overpriced and of mediocre quality. The owner was rude and made us wait for quite some time while she spoke to someone else. The aledged owner also kept trying to sell us fudge that looked realy old. Staff were arguing in the kitchen.

7 of us met for lunch here on a Saturday--it wasn't all that busy, and the food took quite a long time to arrive. It was OK--I had cream of asparagus soup that was a rather muddy color, and didn't have much flavor (if I'd eaten it without knowing what it was, I'd have never guessed it had asparagus in... More

The tea company is a lovely place for breakfast. What we used to call a bohemian coffee house atmosphere. The food was beautifully prepared. The banana crepes were to die for. Many choices for hot teas and cold teas. They also serve Starbucks coffee. The only drawback is that the timeliness of service was terrible. Not a place to eat... More
