Love this little gem. I've been going to The Tea Leaf for some time now both alone with a good book (kindle) or with friends. Reservations are a must since the place seems to have caught on over the years. Scones are delish and sandwiches,

My mom, son and I walked in yesterday at 11:55. I'm British and love a good scone. The place was empty we were asked if we had made a reservation. We hadn't. We were told that there was a party of 4 coming in at 12:00 and she would have to fit us in around them. Once the huge party of 4 arrived, she still hadn't taken our order and then preceded to whistle that these 4 women were on their lunch break (so were we) and that to be taken care of and if my son made any noise, I was to immediately leave. Needless to say, we just left. All I can say, is good luck on running a business with only 4 customers. Also, as soon as you walked in the place smelled like an old attic which turned my stomach - shouldn't it have smelt like freshly baked scones and goodies????? Absolutely shocking experience.

Pros: zero - had to give it one star because of the system.

Cons: don't go, that simple

The Tea Leaf is a great, charming little place for afternoon tea. My sister and I took our mother here for Mother's Day last year; it was the only place we could get a reservation since we waited until a few days before the holiday. We were very pleasantly surprised. The tea room area was decorated in a Victorian style and was absolutely adorable, and the shopping area (all located in the same room) was stocked with more tea, tea accessories, and cute assorted items than it seems like could fit in the place. The tea itself was excellent; great variety of teas and every one of the accompaniments (scones, sandwiches, desserts) was delicious. The service was also great - attentive and warm, but not overbearing at all. Highly recommended for afternoon tea or just the merchandise.
