There is nothing bad to say about Mar Teres Tea Room. Pleasant atmosphere, great service and excellent food. The entrees and desserts are all top notch. The almond tea is a must.

Every time I have been here, the food has been excellent. Reservations are recommended, especially for more than two people. Service has always been great. The only iced tea I prefer to drink is their sweet almond iced tea.

It is a small location so either call and get reservations or order for take out. The food is great and I definitely recommend the bacon quiche or the chicken spaghetti. The desserts are wonderful especially the old fashioned lemon and chocolate bunt cakes (personal size) and my wife LOVES the toasted coconut pie!

Food is great! Mar Teres is a tearoom owned by two local women who do a great job! There is a wide variety on the menu every day with daily specials. As far beverages, the almond tea is my favorite! They also have coffee, regular tea, soft drinks, and a different specialty tea each day. The desserts are absolutely amazing!... More

I had heard good things about Mar Teres but was a little skeptical because it was so small. I was very pleasantly surprised how wonderful our lunch was. We shared tastes of each other's meals and we all agreed that everything was so good that we couldn't even pick a favorite.

Whenever I have a special occasion that needs celebrating, Mar Teres Tea Room is my "go to" destination. Yes, the tables are close, but the energy in the room is just exhilarating. Newbies find the experience daunting at first, but by the time they leave you see happy smiles on their faces. The light lunch is just perfect and the... More

We have tried a bunch of different things on their menu and have t found a single thing we don't like. Their... More

Everything is cooked from fresh ingredients. If it weren't such bad manners I would lick my plate clean!!
