I recently held a bridal shower at this venue and I can't say enough good things about the entire experience. It was perfection from beginning to end. The service was stellar, the food excellent and the atmosphere everything I wanted for a bridal shower. We were given plenty of time to celebrate a very special day and were totally accommodated with everything they could do for us to make it special. Since I was the host for the event, I had tons of things to deliver into the area where we were going to be seated, but they were completely supportive of all my plans and even helped with whatever I needed. It's a wonderful place to have a very special day or celebration but also just a great place to go for fabulous teas and wonderful scones, tea sandwiches, lunch items and fantastic soups! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice outing to a wonderful restaurant operated by a great owner, Kim.

I loved the team room. I was invited by my business coach to chat and have tea. The services was wonderful, the atmosphere is open and relaxing and the prices are great. Loved the staff and the owner Kim. Many blessings!

My wedding party and I had an absolutely WONDERFUL time at the Empress Tea room this past weekend. I was a member of the wedding party and as well all know helping the bride plan a wedding can be very stressful but our time at the empress team room was a nice reprieve from the wedding rush stress. FURTHERMORE, our party sized decreased significantly right before our reservation date and the Empress Tea room was kind enough to wave our extra expensive and only charge us for the ladies that were present. Wonderful place! I plan to bring my future daughter here at least once every few months for a cute mother daughter tea date where we can both be princesses sipping tea and eating cakes and goodies :)

We recently moved here from Colorado and found out about The Empress Tea Room from our friends. We arrived on Sunday for brunch at 10:30, we were seated right away from a beautifully appointed reception/hostess area. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the brunch was a bottomless plate. It was like having a buffet just for us! My wife ordered a Mimosa and I ordered a Mango Spice tea that smelled as wonderful as it tasted. To sum up it up: My wife and I will become regulars. Oh! I almost forgot to mention the Scones!!!! they make them right there, every day! I asked our server jokingly if I could have some to take home, and she brought me back some to take with me. It was an order of 4 for only $6 The prices here are very reasonable, especially for all the ambience and service that is provided.

There aren't enough stars to rate this establishment. I recently traveled from Fort Lauderdale to host my daughter's baby shower here. I had planned a lot of personal touches for this event and was anxious that I may not have time to complete it all. Not only did I have ample time, but the 4 members of staff who were made available to assist me in setting up were great. It was a tremendous experience, and most of my guests told me that they had never been to a baby shower event before, as lovely as this. My daughter remarked at how elegant it all was, and that it was just right for her. My hat is off to this lovely establishment for the professionalism and the outstanding service (and all this while hosting several other tea parties at the same time). I just want to say "Thank You" all for making ours an affair to remember! I will definitely visit this Tear Room again...

An excellent dining experience! My wife and I enjoyed the sights and tastes, during our recent visit for the Sunday Brunch. Staff was very friendly and attentive to all of our needs. The all-you-can-eat fresh plates coming out of the kitchen were both a wonderful concept as well as a joy to our taste buds! We can't wait to visit again and try the dinner mystery theatre!

I had a great experience at the Empress Tea Room last night. The staff was very courteous, helpful and accommodating. The atmosphere was elegant and comfortable. An obvious attention to detail evident in the food and decor. The restroom was clean and I love the decorative rocks in the sink. Very nice touch. I would recommend this cozy bistro to anyone who appreciates quality and excellent service.

I took my mom there today for her birthday, along with another friend. We had a wonderful time. The food was awesome. We had a super tasty soup and then everything from the sandwiches, scones and desserts was fresh and very flavorful. I love being able to try different flavors of tea and was not disappointed. It looked like every table was full, yet service was attentive. The owner took time to chat with us. We had no concerns or complaints. I have heard others mention Groupon. I did use a Groupon with no problems at all. I will definitely be going back.
