This room is beautiful. With the music playing in the background and the high tea, it's a wonderful experience. Great ambiance.

Very nice decor and atmosphere. Good food (especially the chick and spinach crepes). We were seated quickly and waited upon promptly. It was a good stop after church.

I stopped in for a lemonade but will come back for tea service. It’s in a former pharmacy from the 19th century. Students of SCAD are the waitstaff. My waitress gave me a brief history of the room which is beautiful and interesting. Highly recommend. I’m glad I stumbled in.

A lovely space, and wonderful staff! We enjoyed our Sunday Brunch! I enjoyed the history lesson offered on the building and room as well.

It was for me the first time I tried afternoon tea. It was a great experience and also not expensive. We paid 20$ per person and you get a three-tiered tray with scones, sandwiches and sweets. It was very good.
It is a very nice place which used to be an old pharmacy. The place looks great.
We came on Saturday at 3 pm, waiting time for get a table was about 45 minutes.
