Parking wasnt good at all! I had to pay for my own order twice at this place since my groupon wasn't accepted under new ownership! The name of the place hasn't changed so boo to this place!

Hire more help to keep your floors clean and the tables bussed. Sorry, not trying to be mean, but the cafe was in poor shape.

Loved the lesson in teas. Candy was an awesome hostess and very responsive to our needs. Thanks for introducing me to this wonderful tea house.

It was the last day of the groupon but they were out of the items they promised, they gave very little tea even for the $28 price and did not even substitute one pastry per person for the absent 2 macaroons per person that had been on thr Groupon. When I challenged this, they were unpleasant. It was a very negative experience at half the price!

I love tea and I love the idea of your shop. I did not love the fact that you failed to inform us of the second charge for the cake. Your explanation of 4 macaroons = 1 cake came after the fact. There were 2 tables with whom you made the same explanation which was not communicated when you stated I don't have any macaroons, so you guys can select cakes. It certainly was not our misunderstanding but rather your lack of giving your customer sufficient information.

i arrived for my tea time and my daughter still had to park it was busy and she couldnt find a space so I took the tea to go and although the tea was good the cashier didnt label it so i dont know what's what. It was my fault because I had to go but still I didnt enjoy and would not recommend this.
