Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates

Updated as of April 5, 2021

The tearoom is open for dine-in afternoon tea and takeout.

Afternoon Tea Seatings:

Thursday - Friday: 11:00 am, 1:00 pm

Saturday - Sunday: 11:00 am, 200 pm

*11:00 am seating is child friendly (10 and younger).



In accordance with the Forward Virginia Phase Three guidelines, we have physically distanced our tables and have enhanced our cleaning and disinfection practices. Please note that we have one dining room, which has a max occupancy of 50 people. Per the recent fourth amendment to the Executive Order 72, we may allow no more than 50 people for indoor dining. In order to accommodate this, we will be altering our seating times in the near future. If you're looking for a less crowded seating, we suggest a Thursday or Friday seating or for additional distancing, you may request a window table upon booking your reservation. We are asking guests at all seatings to wear a face covering unless seated at their table. Due to the current capacity limitations, please be mindful that an afternoon tea or event seating is limited to two-hours. If time and reservations allow, we welcome guests to stay at their leisure. However, if we have guests booked in at the following seating and need the space, we will ask guests to keep the experience to the two-hour time frame. Please allow us a 15 minute grace period to reset for the following seating. We are doing our best to accommodate as many guests as possible, and may run over, causing guests to incur a wait time of about 15 minutes. Thank you for your understanding!

We will continue to offer takeout options indefinitely.
