Our tea reader was very in tune with all four of us that went . She picked up on way more than what the leaves told . It was a fun afternoon and the homemade mushroom soup was so delicious!!

The food was excellent, ambience appealing and the tea-leaf reading was really well done. Me and three friends enjoyed it immensely. Would definitely recommend it as a place for a bit of a quirky lunch and visit.

I'm pretty sure it's $21.00 per person. The readings are $28.00 for 10 minutes, $50.00 for 20 minutes and $78.00 for 30 minutes. On their Facebook page, they have a menu that opens with prices. Hope that helps.
