My husband and I decided to stop by for some soup after a long walk in cold weather. Although the tea was fine, the pureed kale soup was very bland, not good at all!

This is a great place to visit with someone and have an intimate conversation. Not a great place for kids. Tea is wonderful and you get a little tray and cozy to keep it warm. Sit on a cool day and warm your self from the inside out!

This is a laid back tea shop with a good assortment of tea that is well prepared. It's inviting and a great place to read, study, oof course drink tea and people watch.

I use to work here. World class selection of teas & knowledgeable staff. Free wi-fi. Very booky scene. Great place to buy an asian teapot or cups. I would redecorate, but whatever. Loyal clientele.
