Great quiche, sandwiches, and fruit salad. The muffins are also great. You must try the spiced tea. We also love the cream cheese sandwich and chicken salad. Very friendly atmosphere and quaint surroundings. The definition of a Tearoom!

Apple Cake Tea Room is a favorite luncheon spot. Absolutely wonderful fruit salads, sandwiches and amazing spice tea. Relax and enjoy the log cabin decor and the energy of the staff and the guests. Great spot for catching up with your girlfriends for lunch. I have seen an occasional man dining here so drag your guy along if he is... More

Lovely, quaint restaurant, great lunch menu, my favorite is the Chicken Salad, with fruit and the bread is really good. I also like the Rueben sandwich.

I stopped on a trip south on I-75 /I-40. It is immediately off the exit and super convenient. I meet friends from the area and it was the perfect pit stop. Amidst all the traffic and shoppers whizzing by outside, this sweet log cabin takes you back to a simpler time. The food is wonderful as well as the staff.... More

Absolutely the best lunchtime/tea room/ special occasion place around. The chicken salad is to die for, order it in the half pineapple. You won't be sorry!

The tea room is in a converted log home. Atmosphere is nice. Both the service and food were very good. I would definitely have lunch there again.
