This place is so cute and quaint. The service is always very attentive and the selections are delicious. It is a perfect place to sit with friends and family with a pot of tea and enjoy each other's company. Have never been disappointed on a visit!

Loved having afternoon tea here. My daughter and I each had the light tea. My daughter has a gluten intolerance. We were a little skeptical but to our surprise they had a gluten free option. This made our trip there even more special. The food was wonderful. I had the tomato basil soup with a side of quiche. One of... More

My friends and I opted for The Queen's Tea from the reasonably priced menu. As with all the options, you pick your type of tea from an enormous variety of types and flavors. The Queen's Tea option includes quiche and either soup or salad, then you have your scones, then your little savory sandwiches, then mini dessert varieties and if... More

It's been a couple of years since I visited High Societea, and I have been to a few other teahouses in the meantime. I really enjoyed the food and experience previously, and was okay with the small space getting a little loud, especially on a Saturday afternoon. Our reservation was later in the day, and it seemed that some of... More

We ordered the Queen's Tea and all the goodies served was so delicious. The apricot scones were hands down the best ever. They were so moist and filled with hands full of apricots. All the mini servings added together equaled a most wonderful lunch! We will be back!

What could be better than freshly baked scones, lemon curd and clotted cream. Wonderful tea selection and great atmosphere.

Our party shared tiers of delicious scones, sandwiches and other adorable snacks. The teas here are so good! Personally I loved the caramel chai and blueberry crumble tea. Only con is that this place is in the middle of no where.
