Absolutely loved meeting Debbie and crew, and was able to get some delicious gluten-free food (which can be hard to find in the States). We were able to eat there twice, and would have gone every day if it had fit into our schedule! Nice...More

Even after a considerable stretch of unpaved road (which would have been scary had it been wet and slick because of a big hill), this was a great find! We had no idea what to expect, and it seemed tiny to have such an ad...More

It's like visiting that great aunt's house that has a ton of knick knacks. But it's down-home cooking with regular homemade meals and meals available that are vegan and gluten free. Hard to find elsewhere on PEI. The cream cheese bar was too sweet for...More

The first time I went to the Kitchen Witch Tea Room I was a little apprehensive about what to expect because the building was weathered over the years. What I discovered was a very friendly staff, absolutely delicious orange/lemon marmalade with tasty scone and tea....More

I had heard a lot about this place and decided to give it a try with my vegetarian friend. Sadly it most definitely didn't live up to the built up hype I had received. I will start with the good, the staff/owner was incredibly friendly...More

Friendly staff/owner but total dilapidation inside and out. Extremely cluttered and overcrowded through the entrance/shop with merchandise which appears to have been around a very long time. Ordered the "chili pie" special which arrived barely lukewarm - definitely pre-made and reheated - and with the...More

My daughter picked this as they had gluten free items on menu. Some of us got the tex mex items on the menu, service was somewhat slow as their was 5 of us but we all enjoyed our food. The bathroom needed a facelift.

Made from scratch offerings worth the (sometimes) wait. The only disappointment I can relay is that in multiple visits over the years, sometimes the full Tex Mex menu is not available due to limited staff in this family business. They more than make up for...More

Description
The Kitchen Witch is located in an historic two-room schoolhouse built in 1832.The school building has been lovingly restored to authentic 19th Century decor. It features the original hardwood floors, trim and wainscotting throughout as well as gorgeous double-hung paned windows which admit lots of natural light and a breathtaking view. Beautifully decorated, it features antique wooden tables and pressback chairs, lovely wallcoverings and window treatments and vintage prints.Established in 1980, The Kitchen Witch Tea Room developed a tremendously loyal clientele of repeat customers, comprising both summer visitors and local residents. It has offered a tempting menu of sandwiches served on home-baked breads, freshly-ground coffee and a variety of teas.We have owned and operated The Kitchen Witch since 2006. We have a completely separate and fully equipped gluten-free kitchen. We do not serve fast food, and there is no deep-fried food here at all. We cook almost entirely from scratch, so depending on your order and any orders ahead of yours it may take some time. Please, if you are in a hurry, let your server know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. We understand if you are in a hurry and need to come back another time when you are in less of a rush. We have games on the table, including peg games, crosswords, sudoko, word search and cryptoquick. Children's menus with crayons, and adult colouring pages with colour pencils are available on request.
