A delightful place for afternoon tea. Such pleasant surroundings but not “stuffy”. The table was set so nicely with all of the utensils for tea service. I definitely want to go back! Oh, the food was very, vert good!

The Coronation Chicken Salad, with a touch of curry, and lentil soup were outstanding as was the lemon pound cake with lemon curd; also, a wonderful variety of teas, served hot or cold. Very inviting atmosphere. The owner made you feel right at home and never rushed. Going back soon.

The service was very poor. No refills were offered nor were we checked upon during our visit. The food is consistently very good but I don't know if I'll be a return customer if service remains at this level. Also, when I called and to make the reservation the person with whom I spoke had an attitude.

Absolutely delightful. From the gentle classical music to the vast selection of wonderful teas, to the abundance of delicious edibles (customized for our particular dietary requirements), it was first rate. Best gf scones ever, too. And clotted cream!!! Thank you so much!

When I opened my bags of scones (I purchased 6) I was only given 5. My blueberry lemon scone was not included and I was very disappointed.

So sorry we miscounted your scone order. We have issued a credit for the missing item onto your credit card.

After visiting London in August and going to a legitimate tea time reservation, I knew I had to take my Grandma to tea for the holidays. I looked high and low for tea rooms in our area and found Queens Cuisine. I am so happy with how everything turned out. The tea was excellent. The food was great. We enjoyed the Christmas crackers thoroughly. Best of all, my Grandma loved the place and had an excellent time. Thank you so much!

Queen’s Cuisine is a delightful place to go. The facility is clean, the workers are super friendly, and the food is excellent. Their cauliflower soup is unbelievably delicious and the Christmas tea was so much fun! I hesitate to recommend it because it will be harder to get seated, because it is small. It is seriously good and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Loved the Harry Potter-themed food, drinks, and decor. It was also nice to see other fans enjoying the theme and even interacting together. The reservation card on the table was a nice, personal touch. The gillywater could use more strawberry flavor, but the butterbeer and pumpkin juice were very delicious!

The scones were delicious, the tea perfect - they deliver it in a pot with a small hourglass to time the steeping accurately, and a small plate to rest the used tea leaves on. I also tried the sausage roll, which was very nicely seasoned. The variety of tea is probably their strong point, and they seem to sell most of them in gift tins - a nice touch!

This cafe is a hidden gem.in Edwardsville. Everytime I go the food is always excellent!

I highly recommend the Little Bit of Everything menu option that includes a salad and home made soup, quiche, and a croissant sandwich. The croissants are amazing at this cafe@

We went for afternoon tea service for a birthday celebration. The food was very delicious, as was the tea. The service/waitress was not so great, not helpful, never smiled, was not attentive, and because of this, this very expensive afternoon tea did not feel special at all. The inside of the place itself was very nice, attractive and clean. The outside of the building looked to be in disrepair and almost looked abandoned because of all the high weeds and grass and state of the building. I hate to be critical but for the cost of the afternoon tea, you would like to feel like a "queen" and so much of this visit left us feeling not so much. As mentioned, the food was outstanding and the tea delish, but overall the poor service was the most memorable part of the afternoon. We would like to come back and sample the other food on offer, but we will not return for Afternoon Tea.

I have eaten at Queen’s Cuisine many times. As an Anglophile, I enjoy the ambiance and food that is not served in a typical tea room. It is a taste of another culture. The choice of teas is excellent and food is good.

Having picked some tea, he drank it,
Then he sprouted wings,
And flew to a fairy mansion,
To escape the emptiness of the world....

'Twas such a magical escape indeed, and this just before the Big Bicycle Race and in the middle of bustling Edwardsville, IL, the Crown Jewel of Metro East.

One of my favorites. Usually women who can be noisy but the owner plays classical music in the background that seems to keep the tone of voices at a reasonable level. Just charming!

The service and the food were especially good. Sandwiches were fresh, all foods were tasty, desserts were delicious. The food servings were generous. We took some home and the lady packed it nicely in boxes for us. The afternoon tea was a delightful experience. I would recommend this tea room and its service to anyone who wants a special experience in dining.

I love the comfortable and relaxed feeling of this place. We have been coming for the Afternoon Tea for a number of years. The tea selection is awesome so you can be as adventurous as you want. The food is excellent - the scones are the best anywhere. Service is always good and you can buy scones or loose teas to take home.

My fiance and I went to The Queens Cuisine for a late valentine's day afternoon tea. It was everything we could have hoped for and more!
First of all, the ambiance. Finding parking was rather easy, there's a dedicated lot behind them. Once you walk in, the tea room is so beautifully light and airy- while still feeling cozy. The warm, light colored floor reflected the light of the many windows perfectly. The decor was a good mix of entertaining while not feeling cluttered or too generic. It has so much personality!
The table was set for us, and we were sat down right away, with a huge list of teas to choose from. We are quite the tea obsessed couple, and we had more than enough options to keep us busy (of many varieties of tea to boot).
The food was absolutely sublime. The vol-au-vents were perfectly made- crisp and buttery on the outside, and the filling was subtle and creamy, the sandwiches simple and satisfying, the pastries without fault- very yummy! (especially the bread pudding- the orange liqueur flavour was an unexpected delight) , but the real starts of the show for us were the apricot vanilla scones with clotted cream. They were absolutely out of this world! We loved them so much- we took some more home with us, along with clotted cream, and a tea. We also took home a cornish pasty- and it was so incredibly scrumptious! The pastry was delicious and crumbly, and the meat filling was perfectly spiced.
I want to once reiterate how amazing the service was. Very personalized, and everything we could have wanted was seen to. both of the ladies that helped us (one was the owner I believe) were beyond wonderful.
We will definitely be coming back- many times over, for more delicious food, and wonderful cozy service.
