Lovely time just like before. While it's a little expensive, the experience and the service is always outstanding. The food is consistently good, the menu is well thought out, and the tea pairings are properly considered.I"d encourage anyone celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or any other special occasion to consider coming here.

After hearing others rave about the St. James Tea Room, I finally see why. From the moment I walked in, it felt like the atmosphere laid a blanket of peace around my shoulders.The staff was competent and calm. They spoke softly, but clearly. They lead confidentiality, waited patiently, and interjected smoothly.Our server was Belle. She welcomed us and gathered information about our party, which she referenced later flawlessly (as though she had known us for years.) She detailed the monthly menu like it has never changed, answered our questions, and clarified changes to the menu made due to my nut allergy. She was warm, friendly, and had exceptional timing.The food was well balanced and flavorful. Each tea complimented the food perfectly. Variations for allergies did not detract from the quality or flavor of the food.We were in the Lea Hurst room, which was full of sunlight and lovely flower patterns. Seating was available in pairs (via settee) and individual chair, to maximize options for preference and comfort.The gift shop was lovely, though a bit cramped with several other groups. Again, staff was unobtrusive until needed, then immediately available.Having been enamored with one of the teas from the menu, I purchased some to bring home. Tea prices are extremely reasonable, if you are accustomed to purchasing quality loose leaf tea. Packaging includes appropriate temperature & time for brewing, as well as most compatible sweetener.I am dealing with especially stressful situations both at work and at home. The combination of good friends, good food, and serene atmosphere was a much needed balm for my soul.Reservations fill up quickly, so I have booked for July in advance.

You'll have such a lovely time visiting St. James Tearoom. There is nothing more splendid than sitting for tea with close friends and this environment invites intimacy. Bring your fancy hat (or "fascinator"), or borrow one from the Tearoom and sit to dine upon oodles of tasty morsels. Each seating partition has its own theme and the menu changes regularly making every visit unique. Bring your dearest friends and enjoy a tradition as old as time itself. Your servers will be of the utmost sophistication and will treat you like a royal. After your experience be sure to visit the shop to buy trinkets and mementos.On a recent visit I purchased some clotted cream for a house party and it was quite the hit!

My best friend and I went last year. It was so whimsical, dreamy and adorable. Fancy but with a twist of fun. Love how private each table is. The gift shop is super nice. So much variety. The set up is great inside and out. The server was fantastic. Great food. Delicious tea. Highly recommend it. Wonderful experience!!!
