    Absolutely precious! I cannot believe I waited so long to go and enjoy tea at Sweet Marie’s. My mom and I had a lovely afternoon. The decor is absolutely spectacular. This is definitely a hidden gem in Wickford Village. Looking forward to going back. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    Sweet Marie's is a true little gem hidden in Wickford. Cottage chic styled ambiance; soft flickering glow of tea lights all around with calming sounds of classical music to ease you into the experience. I was skeptical about the set pre-fix menu, however, I'm pretty adventurous with most sandwich fillings so I found all of them delicious and tasty. English Breakfast tea is served and was perfectly brewed; loved they had tea pot warmers to keep it nice and hot. Scones and deserts were just heavenly; the macarons were one of the best i've ever had and the little lemon cupcake was etherial! These ladies are doing a marvelous job; keep it up!

    This was a very cute tea experience and a nice way to spend some time with 3 generations of women on Mother’s Day. They seat people very promptly and everything is brought out in a timely manner. There is very little interaction with the servers so you’re not going to get a custom experience but it is a nice experience.

    The place is adorable, with a rustic kind of vibe. The place settings were beautiful and the food/tea was delicious. The place is small so there's limited seating. There were 5 people in our party and another party of maybe less than 10, but it wasn't loud. The food was set on the table with a pot of tea and the tea was refilled as needed. The 2 hours was plenty of time to eat, socialize and get our fill of tea, we will come back soon.

    Very lovely space. Would have appreciated a choice of teas and the option of sugar substitutes instead of just pure sugar. We were served English breakfast, which I enjoy, but I was expecting options. Still a little confused about the pricing. I used a gift certificate, and the information on the website re: tax and gratuity as they relate to gift certificates is confusing. To complicate matters, the total I was given for the bill was even different than what was on the website.
    Sweet Marie's TeaResponded on April 24, 2024
    Hello Maria and thank you for complementing our decor! I’m so glad you enjoyed your English Breakfast tea. However, Earl Grey, and Chai are two additional tea parings included in our prix fixe price. I’d like to clear the matter of pricing for tea service and gift certificates. As indicated on our website, our tea service is priced at $32 per guest which does not include tax or gratuity. Beginning in 2024, gift certificate pricing has updated to include tax and gratuity making it a simpler transaction for the recipient. Gift certificates purchased prior to 2024 do not include tax or gratuity as indicated in writing on the gift certificate. Any questions on pricing would have been happily answered by myself or staff on site! Thank you!

    Sweet Marie's Tea offers a charming experience in picturesque Wickford. I recently visited London and didn't have an opportunity to have high tea there so this offered a similar experience. There was only one tea offered for the 90 minute sitting which I found odd-most teas offer at least 3 or four choices. Everyone was served the same offerings of sandwiches,scones and treats. While the offerings were enjoyed it might be a good idea to offer alternatives, even if minimal. Perhaps as this business grows they'll be able to offer choices ( which all British teas do). Overall, they're making a good attempt at an enjoyable experience ,which it was !
    Sweet Marie's TeaResponded on April 22, 2024
    Thank you, Donna! Your feedback helps ensure our staff continues to educate our first time diners on the full afternoon tea experience. English Breakfast, Earl Grey, and Chai are 3 tea parings included in our prix fixe price and a selection of herbal blends are available for purchase. I’m so glad you enjoyed our food selection, we love our spring menu too! We are so proud to have expanded our allergen friendly offerings since our opening in 2021 and we will continue to perfect menu items that everyone can enjoy. We are a small, family run business and may see expansion in the future. Presently, our intention is to produce thoughtfully selected menus that focus on attention to detail in flavor and presentation. Thank you for your written review and support. We hope to see you again!

    It was my Mom’s 89 birthday and although the food was tasty, the rest of the experience was lacking. We had to squeeze ourselves into a tight table because there is no room to move becsuse all you have is an isle with tables. There wasn’t any ambiance and the pictures online are deceiving. It was like going into a chilly basement. The doors were kept open to enter and you had to leave the building to go to a bathroom around the corner. It wasn’t at all worth the price they ask.
    Sweet Marie's TeaResponded on April 22, 2024
    Thank you Cheryl for sharing your appreciation of our menu. In response to the uniqueness of our dining room, we make continued efforts to educate our customers on the size and scale of our Tea Cottage. We recommend reviewing all FAQs prior to submitting a reservation where we address potential concerns including the location of our private restroom. Our intention is to provide exceptional service with full transparency of our operations in a building dating back to 1760. Misrepresenting our interior would only be a disservice to our reputation. We are honored that our social media presence has grown from the generosity of our customers sharing their first hand experiences and memories. Thank you again for your feedback and for allowing us to join in celebrating your Mother’s Birthday.

    Such a cute little place! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with our daughter/granddaughter celebrating her 6th birthday. It was definitely a memory we will never forget. And they made it really special for her by adding a candle to her cupcake. They also accommodated a dairy free allergy for one of our guests. Highly recommend!

    A sweet, cozy tea room in Wickford Village with a traditional tea service. Cute decor and place settings, there are a few larger tables so it works best for a party of 5 or fewer. Service is friendly and unhurried. The food is delicious and there are a variety of tea offerings.

    Overal, a nice afternoon tea with friends. Place was cute. Could use background music just to give the cool room some atmosphere. Hostess was indifferent. One hostess for our seating. She just pointed to our table. Once everyone for our time was seated, she server tea. You get what you get. She will change to another flavor if you ask. Her only interaction is telling us what flavor the cupcake and macaron was that day. Couldn’t find her to ask for glass of water. By the time she appeared again, our time was about done. Tray service of finger sandwiches and sweets were tasty.

    It is a delightful little spot, charming cabin with about ten tables, so that makes it a tad noisy. The tea was lovely and attempt at gluten free options was also nice. Not sure the GF and regular tea compare but it was amazing to have the option for an easily enjoyed treat! Highly recommend for a day out with a friend or partner.

    It was a wonderful experience. The room was filled with charm and beautifully set tables. It was a cold and chilly day but inside we were warm and cozy drinking hot tea and delicious food. The three tiered tray was a perfect mix of savory and sweet with more than enough to enjoy there and to take a bit home. Having just recently returned from a trip to London, this was a really nice way to re live afternoon tea.

    Only 2 complaints and sooooo minor. Smaller pots of tea to accommodate different tastes of tea. Mom wanted tradish and I would’ve loved chai. Number 2 - Got too full!!! 🤣. So affordable for high tea and cucumber sandwiches were best I’ve ever had! My recommendation play the part - wear that tea hat!
