This is a delightful escape where one can sip tea and enjoy pleasant conversation. Upon our arrival, the hostess noted that one member of our three-person party had a walking cast and a walker. She seated us quickly and paid particular attention to assuring that...More

More than a restaurant, this is an authentic experience per se. This place makes you travel to another epoch, I would say to the English victorian one. Also reminds me when I was a child, because all is so cute, and you forgot about the...More

The tea room doesn't need my revue as it is a go to place for tea and does great Quiche especially but other Tea Room fare. No liquor so prepare to drink some of the fine English Tea that is available.

The tea room certainly provides a unique experience. The decor is utterly feminine; I love the mismatched tea cups and plates, the pink linen napkins, and the creative chandeliers. My friend ordered the authentic beans on toast, which she loved. I believe they bake the...More

It is a place well-suited to an old Victorian house, but is set in a small space in a tourist center. That is all right because it allows you to do other things while you are in the area. You can mosey on through all...More

My girlfriends and I love going to tea places. We have visited several restaurants serving restaurants that serve high-tea in the metro-Phoenix area, and this is definitely one of the best. TOTALLY worth the drive. The scones are larger than other restaurants. The selection of...More

Every year I take my daughter somewhere special for tea (Biltmore, Phoenician, etc) - are you able to accommodate formal tea for vegetarians (mainly just offering vegetarian sandwiches for the formal offering)? My daughter will be 16 and has her own style - this has never been an issue anywhere I have taken her, and the staff does a great job of making her feel welcome (she had some bullying and self-esteem issues) -- do you think she would feel welcomed at English Rose? If not, we can always go back to the Phoenician this year -- thanks for your help!

I agree with the other answers you got. Take your daughter, eat cucumber sandwiches, drink tea. Be sure to pick a perfect hat to wear and take a selfie with the Queen.

Although there is no dress code, it is the kind of place where some people like to get into the "feel" of an English tea room and you'll see groups of ladies/children in the type of "Sunday-go-to-church" dress. Otherwise... More
