Is the price per person or per couple?

The price listed is per person.

What is included with the each Afternoon Tea?

Each Adult tea includes 3 mini tea sandwiches, 2 scones, a shared side of lemon curd, and three petit pastries.  A pot of tea is shared per couple.  This gives each person about 2-2.5 cups of tea.  Children receive 2 mini sandwiches, 1 scone, a shared side of lemon curd, and two petit pastries.  Children may choose between hot tea or hot chocolate.

Can I substitute a coffee instead of tea?

No, unfortunately not.  We have an incredible line of tea and truly believe it is worth trying, if only once!

Is there a dress code

Come as dressy as you'd like or as casual!  We believe dressing up is half the fun, so why not!

Can I host a private event/ rent out the space

Unfortunately, that is not something we offer at this time.  All teas are hosted during shop hours, while the bakery remains open other guests.

Can bring outside food/drink/alcohol?

No outside food/drink/alcohol is permitted.

How long is our reservation?

Each afternoon tea is reserved for 1.5 hours.  After that, we kindly ask that you relinquish your table so that we may begin setting up for the next guests.

We're celebrating a special event. Can I add on a cake or macaron gift favors?

We'd love to help you with that!  Give the shop a call so we can help set that up for you. 901-729-7916

Am I allowed to bring in decorations (balloons, flowers, etc.)

Sure!  We ask that any decor that is brought in does not attach to the walls or furniture and does not impede traffic flow.

Do you offer vegan/gluten free/ dairy free options?

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer any vegan/ gluten free/ or dairy free alternatives for Afternoon Tea. We can make accommodations for vegetarian requests when notified 24 hours in advance.

Is gratuity included?

A service fee of 15% will be applied to all teas beginning June 2022.

Where can I park?

The closest, most convenient parking is in the Overton Square parking garage.  It is directly across the street from us and is free until 6 p.m.
