|5-Star all the way....a delightful and cozy atmosphere with wonderful service and Southern hospitality. The scones are to die for. We all ordered some to go. Great for a special celebration or just because..... |

| I've visited the Calabash Tea Room multiple times while visiting family in NC. Though it's a 45 min drive from family, it's totally worth it!! The ambiance is quaint, the food delish and the owners/staff are extremely friendly! I honestly can not think of a single negative thing to say about this tea room!

| I have made repeat visits with lots of friends, granddaughters(5 and 8 years old--heart shaped PB&J were a big hit!)and my two daughters to this tearoom--probably because we are NEVER disappointed. Cathy and Anna are gracious and friendly and the food (starting with the tomato basil soup--Yum!)is the best of any tearoom I have been too. I have been to lots of tearooms in many states and I am not exaggerating--Calabash is the best for ambiance, food and friendliness! You will not be disappointed.

| I visited the Calabash Garden Tea room last week while on vacation and had a wonderful time. I went with my mother and my two daughters and we enjoyed the tea, the food, and the overall charm of the place. The gift shop is across the way and I stopped off for some souvenirs and tea to bring home. Overall we had a great time. I look forward to returning the next time I am in Calabash.
| I visited the Calabash Tea Room for the third time in March, 2013. Each time I've been the experience was outstanding. Great service, great tea, wonderful atmosphere. I love the way you're treated when you go there! You feel very pampered and special.
| My experience was delightful. I will absolutely return. My very dear friends suggested The Tea Room and I am so glad we went. From the moment we entered until we left, the atmosphere and service was the best. Treat yourself with something different and marvelous.

|Walk into the cottage of the Calabash Tea Room and begin a journey of enchantment, an extensive variety of teas, great tea sandwiches, salad and homemade tomatoe bisque soup. The tea room is the most charming and delightful experiences you can have. I live local and go with a group friends for every special occassion you can imagine. Bring your cameras as the host's have tea hats, boas, gloves and all the props to bring you into a Victorian Era in England. Kathy and Anna are special people and make all their visitors feel welcome and special. |

| I had a delightful time. The service is friendly, the tea room is charming and the teacups, saucers and napkins reminded me of my mother and grandmother it brought back sweet memories. I cant wait to bring more family and friends here to enjoy a wonderful lunch. The chilled strawberry soup was a nice surprise & the Valentine scone was delish! Not to mention the smoked salmon sandwich among others that were just wonderful on our tier. This is a very special place! Dont miss out when your in town.
| What a lovely experience from the Tomato Bisque, to Garden Salad, to the Devine 3 tier Ultimate tea, there were so many flavors of tea to choose from I was glad my daughters were there to share the fun and their tea :-)
| I took my best friend here today, she was visiting me from New York State. What a treat!! The food at this tea room is like no other tea room I have ever been to. The mini key lime pies on the dessert part of the tier were so good, we wanted more!! Luckily, we were able to purchase the larger version at their cupcake shop on our way out of Calabash. What a wonderful way to spend a cold rainy day or any day for that matter. It's a very busy place so I always make a reservation and you should too.

| What a great time my mother, sister & I had together. We love finding the local tea rooms when we get a chance to be together. it was such a nice time to catch up things and slow down, relax and enjoy one anothers company. especially over some of the most wonderful tea sandwiches, scones and deserts with the Ultimate Tea. on top of it all, we picked out our own flavors of tea and were able to share the teas, What an Experience! Thanks Kathy & Anna for giving my mother, sister and i that opportunity for another beautiful memory.
| This was my second visit to this lovely Tea Room and I was even more impressed the second time. The food, the teas and the service are outstanding. It's a great place to meet with girlfriends or to have a special outing with my granddaughters.

| We visit the Calabash Garden Tea Room every time we come to South Carolina. This time we planned a bridal shower. What a great job ! They paid attention to every detail. The tea sandwich selection was delicious all different the smoked salmon with toasted sesame seeds and roast beef with horseradish sauce on whole wheat fingers were two of my favorites and the service impeccable. The presentation, tea selection, and Kathy's Secret Garden Salad Dressing is the best. All the staff were attentive and organized. I loved the oversized chocolate dipped strawberry and red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. The lavender white chocolate scone was the best I have ever had. There is also a great selection of hats for everyone to enjoy. This is a Tea Room not to be missed.
| I spent the day in calabash today and had lunch at the Calabash Garden Tea Room .... OMG !!!!! What a find ! We had the Ultimate Tea and it was the Ultimate ! I started with fresh chilled strawberry soup garnished with a strawberry heart. The tea sandwiches were delicious and all so different and desserts devine. They have a huge tea selection I had an almond macaroon and my sister had the honey ginger . Can't wait hot go back
| What a wonderful way to spend a few hours, great friends, great lunch, great teas, great hostesses. Dress-up with hats and boas, lots of laughter. Can't wait to do it again.

| I recently hosted a bridal luncheon for my niece at this lovely tea room and it was beyond perfect. Our guests were delighted by the selection of teas, delicious salad dressing, finger sandwiches and petit desserts. And did I mention the best scones ever? This was quite simply the best choice for this very memorable occasion. I can't wait to do it again next year when my youngest niece ties the knot!!
| This is our second visit to the Calabash Garden Tea Room this month. On our first visit my friend and I wanted to take our mothers out for a special event and selected the Ultimate Tea. The food was absolutely fantastic. Fresh and flavorful. Anna and Kathy were the best hostess's. The atmosphere of the tea room was special.There were hats and boas to dress up in. The decor is fantastic. These two ladies know how to make you feel so special. Our second visit was with 19 people from our condo buliding. We raved so much about our experience that everyone wanted to see for themselves. We all had a fabulous time and everyone enjoyed themselves. Thank you Kathy and Anna for a wonderful experience.
| My friend and I wanted a special afternoon with our mothers so we took them to the Calabash Tea Garden for Ultimate Tea. It was truly an experience in elegance and both mothers were incredibly pleased. Anna and Kathy explained the presentations and selections, advised us on the hats and boas and explained about the foods we would sample. It was a marvelous experience and made the day with our mothers a very special, memorable treat. We will be returning again soon. Thank you, ladies, you made the afternoon perfect!
