Although the food is always good, I agree it can be pricey. But the lunch combo of half a tuna melt with soup is great value! Tends to fill up quickly as there are only about a dozen tables, so earlier is better. Friendly staff, fabulous view, overall very pleasant ambiance.

Firstly you notice the cleanliness as soon as you walk in, the waitress was really attentive and on the ball, good customer service. Food was delicious, we had high tea. My only complaint would be the price for the quantity, which is why I likely won't be back. It was delicious don't get me wrong, just a little pricey for... More

Quaint small Tea room on the Gravenhurst waterfront, overlooking Lake Muskoka. Great for English afternoon tea, with scones, jams, cakes and finger sandwiches, Affable service and nice price point.

If you enjoy Tea Rooms you will enjoy the Blue Willow Tea Room located on the Muskoka Bay Wharf in Gravenhurst. We had a window seat with a million dollar view of Lake Muskoka. Lovely blue coloured Willow China. Had a pot of tea and cranberry scone that was very enjoyable. Highly Recommended.

The Blue Willow Tea Shop is a quaint tea shop in Gravenhurst. We had a very pleasant dining experience. We ordered afternoon tea for my Mom's birthday and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The food was made to order and there were modifications based on food allergies. The serving staff checked with us consistently to ensure that everything was going well.... More

if you want a pleasant eating experience,with blue willow china and tablecloths this is the place to come. A small menu but offers food that you don't get elsewhere. If you are a discerning tea drinker,they probably have one for you.

Even on a cold November day this was a delightful experience. Service was very friendly and personable. The view to the lake was beautiful. The blue willow dishes at the little tables were so attractive. And the food was delicious. My husband had the ploughman's lunch - a generous slice of Stilton and real ham plus many other savoury goodies.... More

We went here for a cup of tea and a scone as we had a big breakfast. The tea was hot and the scone was lovely. They offer many varieties of tea and baked goods.
