    We had such a lovely time at our first visit to My Cup of Tea. Mother’s Day weekend fixed menu was available and they knocked it out of the park. A lovely assortment of food and they even served my daughters their hot chocolate and lemonade in teapots (they loved it!). Wonderful service and cozy ambiance. Highly recommended!

    This was exactly what I expected. Very nice greetings as we walked in. It was cute and a bit quirky, in a good way. I took my mom in at 10:30, it was nice and peaceful. The baked goods, biscuit and scones were delicious!! Loved the petite finger sandwiches. Such a great selection of teas. Can’t wait to take my daughters!

    It was ok. Tea was good but got cold pretty quick. Only had two options of Scone and it was served with whipped butter and lemon curd but the scone was cold and very dry. Finger Sandwiches were also ok. I could have made them better myself. My friend had the strawberry salad That was really great!! Service was ok they forgot my scone and everyone was almost done when I got it. Overall the decor was simple. Outside you really don’t know where it’s at? Sign is old or really faded. I’ve been to tea shops before, they have a good concept but just not there yet.
    My Cup of TeaResponded on May 5, 2024
    … while I am always open to feedback, I feel this is super nit picky. It’s a funny comment to say you only had two choices of scones. I have been to many tea rooms and I have never been to one that offers more than 1 kind.. We also did not forget your scone.. The scone is served as a last course with what you ordered. And no one else at the table did this.. it isn’t whipped butter, it is a heavy cream with cream cheese to make a delicious spread that many ask to buy more of.. Our scones are baked fresh every morning. We do not keep warming them as that would make them dry. But are happy to warm upon request. I am curious if you have made tea sandwiches for 50-100 people a day on a budget? I could go on, ... but I will leave it there and hope the discerning customer while figure it out.

    Very cozy atmosphere, gave me the sweet nostalgia of visiting my grama and baking goodies with her and having tea while we waited. I’d definitely go back whenever I’m up in the area and able to.

    the staff was so friendly even though it was super busy when we came, they even took the time to draw us a little picture on our receipt to say thank you for coming! the food was more than worth the price as i’ve payed upwards of 90 dollars for a tea service like the one they offered for only about 35, truthfully awesome place!

    My first visit to My Cup of Tea was memorable!!! The pleasant ambiance of the tea house was in keeping with an early 20th century Americanized version of a tea house set in a small English village. The Cheddar Cauliflower Soup just may be the best soup I have ever eaten!!!! But - and this is rather a large "But." While the American sandwiches listed on the menu are of normal size and very tasty, the portions of the food served with the teas were also tasty, but miniscule compared to the pictures shown on the restaurant's website. For example, the four mini sandwiches served with my tea might add up to a half of a regular sized piece of bread, while a piece of quiche requested by one of our guests was only slightly bigger that a U.S. postage stamp. The fresh fruit mentioned on the menu consisted of a small handful of grapes and two small half-slices of orange. The scones were more the size of small biscuits, but the taste was melt-in-your-mouth perfection. For all these reasons, I consider the overall prices a little dear. I hope my critique will be taken seriously and in the manner in which it is written. My Cup of Tea has the positive potential of developing into a very popular tea house in an area certainly lacking in them. One big advantage the restaurant has is the warm and friendly owner and her daughters who add much to the ambiance of the tea house.

    My Cup of Tea is located in a cute little house in north Burlington - sit in the west side/sunnier part of the house next to the window. The service has been nice and the scones, lemon curd & Devonshire cream…delish! We had the baked potato soup on our last visit and it was wonderful and filling. My friend and I enjoy meeting up at My Cup of Tea - it’s conveniently located and the food is presented well and of good quality. We feel fortunate to be able to have afternoon tea in Skagit County!

    Waitress was unsure of many menu items and our bills became very messed up. In the end food was good, but rather expensive.
    My Cup of TeaResponded on January 6, 2024
    I find this review interesting. You ordered all Al a carte items. Which did make it slightly more confusing for a new waitress who was trying her best to make your party happy. When she went to check you out she tried to bundle your items to make for a less expensive meal. You insisted that she was doing it wrong. So I fixed it to the Al a carte items that you insisted on being charged for. I explained to the whole table this was not a cheaper way to ring you up. This was your decision not ours.We appreciate the business and glad you enjoyed the food and your visit with each other. But we do ask that customers are kind and patient with staff. In the end the bill was completely fixed to how you asked for it to be.

    I wanted to treat my office staff to something special for Christmas. I love traditional english tea services and I thought this would be perfect. It was! The tea sandwiches, scones and desserts were excellent. My three ladies had never experienced tea time and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you enjoy a traditional tea service you will like this one.

    Early in October I took visitors from New York to Victoria, BC, for a few days. Tea at The Empress was a planned treat, but the cost ($95 per Canadian) discouraged us. So, upon our return to Bellingham, we kept right on driving to you for a most delectable high tea. We ate every crumb and loved every minute. Thank you!
