Our nieces from Toronto like to go to tea houses, and The Tailored Tea lives up to its billing as having the only scones in America that are closest to an English scone. The restaurant in Latham is open six days a week (closed Tuesday) in a historically preserved building on Albany International Airport property. It is a re-imagined farmhouse,... More

Went for lunch with my sisters. All agree we tried the place but will not return. The good: quaint farm house, pleasant staff. The bad: dirty silveware and cups. Some of it was tea stained, however, I was able to clean it with a napkin. The turkey on top of my salad was deli procces meat and so was the... More

My wife and a friend went for breakfast. Friend ordered a scone and it came burnt on the bottom and hard. She immediately sent it back. A few minutes later waitress came back and placed scone on table. It was the same one! Burnt bottom and all. They must have but it in microwave to soften it. This time she... More

The tea selections were varied, with something for every taste. My daughter had a spinach, basil and goat cheese omelette, and I had the spinach and cheddar frittata- both were delicious. But the highlights of the breakfast were the amazing coconut sage scones with clotted cream and the delicious herbed home fries! And the staff was friendly and very efficient.... More

I gave it four stars because the food truly is delicious and the atmosphere is very charming. The service, however, can be very slow. There is also one waitress (the one who speaks in a very high and condescending tone) who has quite a bit of attitude. I used to go there all the time and stopped because I do... More

Located in a small house next to the Albany airport. Great benedict choices and daily scone specials. Perfect for weekend brunch.

I WANT to like this place. I really do. It's a quaint little place with a good atmosphere and I love the fact that it's basically a repurposed farm house. But they're just so inconsistent. My tea was delicious; a simple Earl Grey with lots of body. My wife's peach iced tea tasted fermented and mediciney. My salmon Benedict was... More

The food was delicious and the chef actually came out to see if we were enjoying our meal. I will definitely return and recommend to my friends.

Scones were delicious and the tea selection is vast. I ordered sandwiches and they were good but way overpriced. It was basically a homemade turkey sandwich and I don't think homemade tea sandwiches with a side should ever be $11.50. The service could also be better. There were long periods of time we didn't see our server. My suggestion is... More
