Frequently Asked Questions
We are a casual tea room - while we are delighted when guests dress up or don hats, it is certainly not required.
We require credit card information upon booking to help us prevent no-shows and wasted food / reservation space. Any cancellation up to 7 days prior to the reservation date incurs no penalty. Cancellations within 7 days of the reservation date that are unable to filled by the waiting list incur a $10/person fee. No-shows are charged the full price of tea service, per person.
We are located in an old stone house, set back from the road a little bit at 1854 Brevard Road (Rt. 191) in Arden. We are about 15 minutes south of downtown Asheville, about 10 minutes north of the AVL Airport, and about 2 miles south of the NC Arboretum.
Of course! Well-behaved children are welcome, and we offer a children's tea service for half price. They receive a pot of tea (or lemonade, or hot cocoa, etc.) plus scones and shortbread cookies, but just 2 finger sandwiches and 2 desserts instead of the usual 4 each. Please indicate the number of children below 10 years of age in the "REQUEST" box when making a reservation!
Of course! We welcome bridal showers, baby showers, bachelorette parties... or any sort of celebration, really! Please e-mail [email protected] with a date and approximate number of guests for more information!
For the most part, yes. However, we admittedly and proudly have thrown a few southern "twists" into what is known as traditional tea service. We promote a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere that is not stuffy or too prim-and-proper, so as to maximize the enjoyment of an afternoon savoring tea and homemade treats.
We're happy to accommodate you! Please note any and all dietary restrictions or food allergies in the "REQUEST" box when making a reservation! Gluten-Free and Vegan or Dairy-Free tea service is available for an extra $2/person.
