One Steep at a Thyme
Ranked #5 of 17 Restaurants in Jamesburg
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 July 2017

We had a wonderful time. The seven courses were delicious and beautifully presented. Tea details were everywhere, from the teaspoons with the Tea Pots on top, to the salad topped with a teapot shaped crouton. The room was elegant yet homey. We had over 100 teas to choose from, and we each received a pot of perfectly steeped tea as well as a pitcher of delicious iced tea. The first and 2nd courses were a cup of soup and a delicious salad containing pears and plums. Next we were served scones with clotted cream, lemon curd and jam. Then the quiche which was served with a watermelon salad. Then plates of assorted tea sandwiches, each one tastier then the next. Then plates of desserts. The final course was strawberry kiwi sorbet. The service was great. We felt like we were transported back in time. They were also very accommodating for food allergies. Was a bit pricey, but worth it for a wonderful treat!

I've been here 4 times with large groups and Kathy Hipeli and her staff make us feel welcome and special. Every effort is made to accommodate special dietary needs, presentation is elegant. A neat feature is the tea book from which you can switch teas to try something new. The hands-down favorite tea was the champagne berry. The French onion soup is also incredibly good.At $29.95, this is a world-class tea at an affordable price.

This is a unique outing! Have tea and sandwiches and MUCH MUCH more at this quaint establishment off the beaten path but close enough to get there conveniently. They serve a 2 to 3 hour lunch of the finest, homemade delicacies that go with teas and oh! the teas! so fresh! a real wide variety too! And the staff is very accommodating and laid back. What a treat for a birthday, aniversary or just to have a great afternoon with friends!!! (or family!)

My husband and I visited this wonderful tea room during the holidays. We were greeted inside by the owner in this beautiful Victorian home. It felt like we were coming for a visit. The tea room was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We were given a 3-page menu of teas to choose from. The owner helped describe the various teas. We were even given a sample of the blueberry crumb. So good! It's a 7-course meal in two hours. Each course was perfectly timed. We have been to quite a few tea rooms and this was the best we've ever visited from the ambiance to the delicious food. What a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion!

Charming, small tea room. Owner run and very friendly.
Very relaxing atmosphere.
Worth returning too. Pumpkin spice tea was aromatic and full flavored, not bitter at all.
Note parking is a little odd but not detracting.
Enjoy!
