POLICIES AT MISS MINERVA'S TEA ROOM & GIFTS
Service as It Should Be
What You Need to Know
Private events (family gatherings, church and civic meetings, retirement parties, etc.) may be scheduled for 11 to 32 guests. Reservations are required and should be made at least four weeks prior to the event. Please note that the months of April, May, November and December are reserved weeks/months in advance.
One luncheon selection will be made for the group. The luncheon selection options may be either a Full English Tea ($35.00 per person), Tea for One ($33.50 per person), Afternoon Tea ($30.00), or a Lite Tea ($28.50 per person). Depending upon the luncheon selection, the meals may include: Tea Sandwiches, Savories, Desserts, and a Scone with Clotted Cream and Jam for each guest.
Three (3) loose teas may be selected by the hostess. If the hostess prefers, staff will make recommendations. Tea will be served throughout the meal.
The cost of the event includes a nonrefundable $150.00 Reservation Fee for the private use of the dining room (for up to 3 hours plus time for set up and take down of decorations).
If guests have special dietary requests (i.e. gluten free, vegetarian, etc.) or allergies, this information needs to be provided in advance to assist with meal preparation and service.
How It Works
Coming in for afternoon tea can be an absolute delight. We do our best to provide a relaxing tea experience for our guests. As we want to introduce the art of tea to all, we are here to teach tea room etiquette to any who wish to learn. As such, we are a little more informal than many tea rooms and do not have a dress code or age requirement. We do ask for reservations so we can make sure we can provide the best service possible and accommodate any food allergies for the party.
We do love our younger guests, but we do ask that there is one adult for every three children as there is a lot of hot tea and china and we want to keep our little ones safe.
We have a policy of adding a 20% gratuity to all tables of 6 or more guests
