My mother commented that she had never been to a "real tea party" before. Thanks for making out day special.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Tea at Brown PalaceHad booked the last appointment (4pm) on a Friday. Party of 4 (2 vegetarians). There were several tea options. We enjoyed the house Oolong and Jasimine - both which were very good. We had cucumber, tuna and eggsalad sandwiches. Two different delighfully sinful scones and several pastries. On request they brought us some delicous capriese tea sandwiches. Refills of sandwiches were complimentary. A three piece jazz ensemble played for most of the two hours we were there. Tea is served in the lobby on small tea tables, sofas and chairs. The wait staff was friendly and checked on us often. It was a wonderful way to spend my 50th birthday --worth the money for a special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbianceGreat ambiance, supplied a second tray of sandwiches, delicious scones. Not inexpensive, but a real, uptown, glamorous experience. Tea served at its best with piano player, comfortable sofas or deep high-backed chairs. Will return again and again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful vintage hotel surroundingBeautiful vintage hotel surroundings and superb food combine to make tea at the Brown Palace a special experience.

As usual the staff was incredibly friendly, the pianist was charming and the tea and snacks were delicious! After almost two hours had past, my friend and I both reflected on how time seems to be suspended at the Brown Palace and can get away from you. This was also my five month old daughter's first tea experience and she was a hit with the staff, of course. Overall, a wonderful experience and a great place to celebrate a special occasion or teach your young daughter how to be a lady!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful place toWhat a wonderful place to share a couple hours with family and friends over a cup of tea.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTea at the Brown PalaceTea at the Brown is really a treat!

Food, atmosphere, service is always outstanding!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed it OverallThe atmosphere is very relaxing with lovely surroundings. Pianist played beautifully as background. Loved his selections.
Servers were friendly but not obtrusive.
There were 3 of us and we were not impressed with the pumpernickel sandwiches (dry) and we preferred the little egg sandwiches of the past instead of the little shells used that day. The caramel apple thingy was not delicious.....
All in all we always enjoy our Tea at the Brown which has been birthday and mother's day celebration several times.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable classy tea time!A classic afternoon tea for a gathering of girl friends or something fun to take Mom to, too.

The food was done to perfection and sized as appropriate for a tea. Though we were is Colorado, if you closed your eyes, we could have been at the Plaza in NY or Raffles in Singapore. Truly an example of the way things still should be done!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAfternoon High TeaA special occasion to celebrate our 7 year old's birthday with her BFF, sister and special nanny/friend.

We explained the importance of tea rituals in England.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for high tea withFirst time for high tea with two female family members. Everything met my expectations.
The servers were the best part. Brown Palace can be proud of their staff from the doormen to the concierge to the lady giving the tour afterwards. They have been properly trained just plain lovely time.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experienceThis was my first time visit and I'm very impressed.

It was an amazing experience with the wonderful finger foods and an exceptional atomosphere.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my mom to High Tea whileTook my mom to High Tea while in Denver this week and we both enjoyed everything about it. Seated in the stately lobby of the Brown Palace hotel, watching the world go by and enjoying a full English tea from sandwiches to pastries, we reminisced about her visits to the hotel with my grandparents long ago. The Brown Palace's own tea blend reminded me that I do like good tea...enough so that we purchased cans to take home with us. The scones were fresh and served--of course--with devonshire cream. The treats made with care and the sandwiches beautiful and tasty. Service was elegant and attentive and we felt well cared for. What a lovely afternoon.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
