    I've been here twice and never gotten sick or cross contaminated. The owner advised that people with celiac disease should specify that so she can be sure to prepare and plate things separately. The treats are so delicious and I thought the prices were reasonable - such a thrill to find a place where I can go for High Tea!!

    My sister and I (both celiac) took my mom (not GF) here as a birthday present because we'd heard they could accomodate for gluten free. It was great! It's a tiny little place run by one woman, and if you want GF you need to call at least a day ahead so she has time to prepare food for you. When I went we did the "Afternoon Tea" with is about $25 a person I think (so a little pricey). Each of us picked a different flavor tea, which was brought out in tea kettles. Then we each got 2 scones, served with cream and jam. The GF scones were different flavors than the normal mom got lemon and coconut/chocolate, I believe, and my sister and I got blueberry and something else...cranberry maybe? Following that, we got little sandwich trays containing 5 different finger sandwiches for each of us. The flavors were the same for GF/non-GF, but the GF sandwiches were served on GF bread. Finally, we each got a small dessert tray with 5 mini desserts on it. As with the scones, the GF desserts were different than the non-GF desserts. My sister and I each got a chocolate covered strawberry, a small brownie, a small cookie with a PB cup in it, etc. My mom got the strawberry but her other desserts were different. I don't know of any other tea houses offering such extensive gluten free options - I was very impressed and would definitely recommend it!
