Highly recommend this place for a nice tea experience. If you like tea, this is your place. It is my second time here and enjoyed it both times. The first time was a special event on Super Bowl Sunday with a tarot card reader. Lots of fun! You come to enjoy the tea and the experience.

I've been here for tea three times in October and November - it's that good. Each month has a theme. You can find the menu on their website. You choose which scone you want, as well as the soup you want. This is followed by a salad. You get all the finger food and desserts they list. Each table gets... More

My sister and I love Camellia's. We take each other for our birthdays and sometimes, we just go for a sister day. It is our favorite tea parlor. The teas are wonderful, the food is great and the service is the best.

With 10 years of experience with this tea parlor, I can say that the food preparation and staff personality is top notch. With Kara in charge of the kitchen for the past several years, the quality of the offerings has only improved. The current staff are all friendly, upbeat, knowledgeable, and eager to do anything to make the customer's experience... More

We went here for their tea lunch. They were short staffed and our server was rushed. The food was fine that they served, however, our tea came out late, as they were over booked, and our water glasses remained empty. Overall, not bad, they just need to schedule their lunches, along with their help staff, a little better.

This sweet little gem on quaint Pomfret Street in Carlisle continues to be a favorite place to sit and enjoy the feminine fun of tea and leisure conversation. The numerous list of uncommon and exotic teas would be enough to entice but the delicious assortment of scones and soup and delectable bites of petite sandwiches and desserts have kept me... More

Took my sister this time for her maiden voyage to this lovely tea room, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't tolerate onion or garlic, and, once again, my food was prepared around that stipulation, which I very much appreciated. My sister loved the tomato basil soup -- so thick and creamy-- and my fruit soup had been frozen... More

Cute Victorian themed tea room with lots of interesting teas and some fantastic foods to taste along the way. We have gone several times and have always enjoyed our experience. The menu changes monthly. The tea begins with a choice of several different soups, followed by a salad and a choice of either a sweet or savory scone. After all... More

I came here for tea with my mother and step-father. We had the best server, Kaylie, who was full of energy and enthusiasm for the tea room and her job.

Themes and special events are great - fantastic menu - lots to eat and paced nicely -- everyone gets their own tea and as much as you want. We had a bridal shower there as a private party, Lynn paid heed to those who had allergies, made our day lovely. Must go to the gift shop also, even if you... More
