    My mother lives in Delaware where there are several tea rooms she frequents with friends. However, she rates Miss Minerva's her favorite. Not your typical tea sandwiches, the savories at Miss Minerva's were unique and delicious! The tea was very tasty and the desserts heavenly. Service was very attentive. We'll definitely be back! Donna (Lake Anna)
    Wonderfully delicious -- a delightful time shared with a friend.
    This was my first visit but won't be my last! Mary (Colonial Beach, VA)
    My wife and I just returned from a wonderful "Valentine's Day Tea." Our visits to Miss Minerva's are always enjoyable and include a warm welcome and attentive service. This visit was over the top with delicious tea and a very full 3 tiered platter of tasty delights. Thank you for making this a very special Valentine's Day. John Woods(Locust Grove)
    Miss Minerva's should be rated #1 on Really enjoyed our visit. Eileen L.
    Everything was scrumptious -- tea and food -- service with a smile and "dress up hats." Miss Minerva's is #1 in my book! Bette
    We are so happy that we decided to have "Tea for Two." The food was excellent and the ambiance lovely. Delightful chatting with Monica and we shall return!
    I had a full English Tea with my dear Aunt Shirley, my cousin Debbie and my two sisters Lynn and Vicki on Dec. 28, 2012. I live in King William, VA and my two sisters in Richmond. My cousin and aunt live in Orange. We had such a special time and were treated like the queen and her friends had just arrived. The food was delicious. The scones were the best I have ever eaten. The soft music playing was so comforting. We enjoyed wearing your fancy hats and brought laughter and smiles. The last two months have been hard for our family due to a family illness. Miss Minerva's Tea Room was just the place for us to come together as a family and share the love that is so deep in our hearts especially during such a difficult time. Thank you for having such a special place for us to show our love for one another. May God Bless you and your business. Terry Bush, King William VA
    Great time shared with dear friends talking, laughing and enjoying your delicious food complimented by a wide selection of teas. Welcoming and friendly atmosphere created by staff. Many thanks for a special memory. Joyce
    We are a group of ladies who have had tea at Christmas for over 25 years. After a few of us retired, we began searching for a 'tea room' that would compliment those we had visited in Washington. This tea room is 'top notch' and competes with 4-star hotel teas we attended over the years. Any one who enjoys good food, great tea selections and a wonderful ambiance, should visit Ms. Minerva's. It is outstanding. Karen
    Oh what a uniquely delightful time I had at Miss Minerva's Tea Room this past Wednesday, 12 December 2012! I've never written a restaurant review before. Miss Minerva's was recommended to me for lunch so highly during a recent shopping adventure that I had to try it. In this day and age when I am so often just a number in some overly rushed public space with rather routine selections, Miss Minerva's was a true joy. I ordered the full English Tea with organic Cheeky Peach hot tea, the latter recommended by my neighboring diners. Perfect, just perfect. My beautiful plate containing a variety of tea sandwiches, bite-sized savories and desserts was like a jewel box with each "trinket" better than the last. Oh I was full by the end, but with delectable tastes and sensations left behind. I can't go anywhere else now. I only hope to come with a friend next time because the Tea for Two selections come on a glorious tiered serving tray! With such exquisite food and drink and a marvelously charming owner and staff. . .why would I go anywhere else? Susan (Fredericksburg)
    Last Saturday, our book club visited Miss Minerva's Tea Room. It was a wonderful experience. The luncheon was elegant and very tasty. Thanks to Pat Settle for preparing a Weight Watcher plate for me with WW prepared cranberry scones. I was in heaven. All seven ladies were delighted too! It was a very special day. Roxie (Palmyra)
    I was able to visit Miss Minerva's three times this past week and I loved it every time. It is the place to get away from it all and spend time with special friends. Pat Settle noticed my frequent visits and made some different selections on the tea tray on the last visit. Now that is just like home! Patricia Lattin (Culpeper)
    Very delightful. Kris (Unionville)

    Miss Minerva's has a wonderful selection of loose tea. Choosing the tea is half the fun as there are nearly 50. I chose a classic English Breakfast which was brewed excellently and tasted just as it should. My friends picked a more fruity tea in the Raspberry blend. Our lunch was delicious and our tea server was so friendly and made the experience so enjoyable. There is also a very sweet gift shop. Lovely afternoon -- hope to return. Lynda B.
    We had the MOST PERFECT baby shower ever at Miss Minerva's. You would not believe how many are still commenting on our time together there. It was a beautiful occasion to honor my daughter-in-law, Anne. I thought you would be interested in knowing that Anne had her baby on March 5. Precious Mary Rylan weighed 10 lbs 1 ounce. She is so BEAUTIFUL and truly a gift from the Lord! Thank you so much for providing the perfect setting and dining experience for the baby shower. Kindest regards & God bless! Judy L. (Kentucky)
    My granddaughter goes with friends to Miss Minerva's a couple of times a year from Catlett, VA. I live in Florida, and she always likes going to "The Tea Room" (Miss Minerva's) when I come up from South Florida to visit. As always excellent service and the menu is plentiful and yummy. Sincerely, Allie B. (Florida)
    The tea room has excellent food and excellent service. The ambience is a delightful mix of coziness of a British tea room and the beauty of an upscale dining room. Being brought up by a British mum, I am pretty picky about tea rooms and this one met all of my expectations. Although it is over an hour's drive from my home, we will be back for another tea soon! Kathy
