Afternoon Tea
Spilt Tea, is a full-service Scottish tea room that provides a European-style tea experience. We produce high-quality baked goods and a wide selection of teas in a full-service or carry-out environment.

Our team room caters to those impacted by celiac disease as well as gluten or nut allergy sensitivities who crave authentic baked goods without compromising on flavor. Products are safely made onsite in a gluten- and nut-free tea room in town. We are unlike anything else offered in the area.

All of our teas are organic and, wherever possible, we use organic ingredients to ensure the utmost quality.

We were greeted and seated by the owner. The room she placed us in was beautiful and serene. She explained all the different teas to us, (which was very helpful). They brought out our tea and treats on the prettiest china. The food was amazing! The tea was outstanding, and the service was impeccable. We will most definitely be back.

Beautifully decorated tea room with the perfect ambience reminiscent of our visits to Scotland & England. The staff is extremely warm and friendly- Susie is a fantastic hostess! The biscuits, scones, merengues & goodies were delicious. They even served clotted cream w/ the jam and scones! Love the Scottish Blend~ ☕️Can’t wait to pop in for another pot. 💜

It was my daughter’s first experience with a European tea room, and it was wonderful. They were very patient, and explained everything really well. It is a great experience for anyone wanting to try it out!

Excellent afternoon tea in a very quaint setting. I am happy there is finally something like this in Fredericksburg that does not cost an arm and a leg.
Lots of choices of tea and they even served clotted cream! Perfect!

The cucumber sandwiches were not as good as I have had elsewhere. It may have been the White Bread—can’t quite put my finger on it. Everything else was lovely and really enjoyed my time there

The owners are wonderful people that make sure everything is as best as it can be and the staff are accommodating and friendly. The food in the Afternoon Tea is very well made and all gluten free; I personally enjoy the savory foods. I went with a group of friends the first time as a casual and then with a date the second time, and both times were just as wonderful.

Very nice, clean and safe atmosphere. Very friendly owners and great tea and food. If I had to make any suggestions it would be to maybe add more savory items and a few meals to choose like salads, soup/sandwich, quiche type things something others don't have. I'd definitely visit and recommend.

Lovely experience- from welcome to timer for tea to be properly steeped, to the much too good excellent offerings for a ‘light’ lunch, everything was exceptional and more than expected. Will plan another fun day soon.

Wonderful experience! Beautifully decorated. I will definitely go again. The food presentation lovely. The only suggestion regarding food, the cucumber sandwiches had very little dressing or cucumber on the sandwich. I plan to go with another friend in a few weeks. Wishing you many years of success! Blessings! Tammy
