Great for a special occasion. The food ...

Dined on December 20, 2015

Great for a special occasion. The food was made fresh and delicious. We couldn't even finish it, so we took two scones home. The home is beautiful and the owner was very welcoming.

Love Love Love High Tea with Queen's Cuisine

Dined on February 15, 2015

This was my third time having tea with Queen's Cuisine, the second time with this small group of friends. We giggle with delight that it's time to go to tea! The quality of food, service and ambiance are incredible. We upgraded and got the champagne this time and it really kicked it up a notch. Would be great for a small bridal/baby shower, celebration, time out with a mom or other loved one. Very intimate setting (only 5 tables available). Menu has been different every time, but always includes the classics. They offer special diet (gluten-free, vegetarian, etc.) options. If we didn't have families/other commitments I think we'd go every month. I know similar experiences go for much more and aren't as personal! What a great excuse to enjoy a nice (very) hot cup of tea, visit with friends and eat the most amazingly delicious treats. Oh, an they give you real silver, too! :)

Fit for a Queen

Dined on December 14, 2014

The service was amazing! We got lost trying to find the location, and ended up downtown. The absolutely brilliant lady who runs the tea service made sure we got there any ways. The food was sublime and the tea was very good. I would highly recommend going at least once for the experience, but I can see myself making this a regular event for myself.

Charming Afternoon Tea

Dined on August 10, 2014

This was everything afternoon tea should be! We were each able to choose the type of tea (courtesy of Traveling Teas) we wanted, which was then served in an individual pot. The cucumber sandwiches were my personal favorite of the sandwich choices. The scones (two kinds!) tasted delicious with the strawberry jam and clotted cream, and the peaches and cream dessert were a real stand-out. And the Fleur-de-Lys Mansion provides a beautiful and historic setting for tea that is a treat!


Good for a celebration

Dined on April 13, 2014

A group of 7 ladies enjoyed this traditional English tea as a joint birthday celebration. Scones & sandwiches were authentic, as was the tea. Clotted cream & jam added the final touches. Great atmosphere! We would do this again and definitely recommend.

Great Sunday afternoon

Dined on February 9, 2014

My daughter & I enjoyed a quiet, delicious afternoon tea in a beautiful setting. Made the wintery day much more bearable! Great food, interesting surroundings. We have recommended the tea to several friends.
