The food was terrible and it's not a good value
new ownership and name. It's now Royal Tea?
I have purchased many Groupons with great satisfaction. However, when I redeemed the Queen’s Bakery Groupon, I was quite surprised when the proprietor asked me to pay the sales tax (and furthermore) on the full amount before the Groupon discount. When I arrived back home, I looked at the Groupon again and saw that it clearly states “Tax and gratuity not included.” I never noticed it and didn’t think to read it. My expectation was consistent with other food Groupons I have enjoyed in the past. None of them have ever asked for sales tax upon redemption of a Groupon. My neglect in reading the fine print is no excuse. Nevertheless, I will not purchase a Groupon for Queen’s Bakery again!
Service is slow, but food is good wirh goid value with Groupon.
Expensive for what we got! Not very authentic English High Tea..
It is an odd little place. While the food was good, the service was not. No one seemed to be quite sure who's job it was to do what...so no one offered much service. All food orders are handled at the register....no table service. This was not like any tea place I have been to before.
They get busy around lunchtime, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM. I would recommend coming in before 11:30 or after 1:30.
Great place for an afternoon High Tea, delicious desserts, beautiful deco, relaxing with touch of class! A great deal through Groupon.
My only problem was that they were out of half of the teas that were on their menu, and of course, all the good ones!! But the food and service was wonderful.
From Our Editors
The chefs at Queen's Bakery make all their dishes from scratch; they eschew preservatives, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, and artificial flavors in favor of ingredients such as pure cane sugar and wheat grown no more than 100 feet from a coronation crown. They bake their breads and sweets daily and brew a house tea blend each day. The staffers complement this brew with 16 other socially responsible teas—blacks, greens, herbals, and oolongs—harvested from Third World tea estates that provide housing and education for employees and their families.
At lunch, servers bring out European-inspired paninis and cold sandwiches with ingredients such as oven-roasted beef, blue cheese, and artichokes. They accompany many of these with housemade sauces such as shallot yogurt and lime-cilantro vinaigrette. For sweet conclusions, bakers sculpt treats such as cake pops, éclairs, and tiramisu, as well as colorful macarons. Many of these they decorate themselves, though patrons are welcome to bedeck desserts with their favorite colors or Al Pacino mugs during cupcake-, cake-, and cookie-decorating parties.
