Afternoon Tea
Terrie Green, the owner of the award-winning Corner Scone Bakery, loves to entertain and bring happiness to people with her batches of sweets. She recognized a lack of tea houses in the San Joaquin area and thus her desire to fulfill that need for the Lodi community emerged. Famous for her baked goods and sensational hostess skills, Green decided to offer High Tea parties at their bakery on the weekends, but the popularity of the events outgrew the small shop. When the former Barking Dog cocktail lounge closed, Green saw potential to expand her ideas. With years of baking experience, and a love for vintage tea sets, it was a natural transition from bakery to tea house. From a old-timers saloon bar turned elegant tea room, Green couldn't wait to open in August of 2016, she and her family were excited to present The Hidden Tea Room; a place where the community can enjoy an elegant style of tea. Green happily welcomes you to the opportunity of a dainty oasis.

I love the hidden tea room so much! It is the perfect place for a fun and delicious tea time. Their teas are all so good and the service is always amazing. I truly can’t say enough good things about them, the outside dining is so nice, good shade coverage and it’s so nice outside!

I took mt 86 year old mother and 2 friends as her Christmas present. It was very fun. Cute gift shop, great selection of teas and excellent food. The only downside was we were out of tea for quite awhile before they took our next order

The food was very good but very small in portion. per person, you get a miniature scone, a puff pastry, a bite size egg quiche, not even quarter a cucumber sandwich, a bite size cupcake, a one inch lemon square, and a miniature macaroon, seriously one inch diameter and it took them two and a half hours to serve it!!! You are literally waiting almost 30 minutes between courses for finger foods. It’s a cute place, friendly staff, nice ambiance but not worth the time and you leave hungry. I didn’t like having to be herded into service with only one tea time either. By doing that they are deterring business.

The high tea service at the Hidden Tea Room was superb. The food was delicious, the tea perfectly brewed and the service phenomenal. They were incredibly accommodating to our various dietary restrictions, and the 5 course tea left us pleasantly stuffed. Highly recommend The Hidden Tea Room for anyone looking to enjoy a classic high tea.

I really enjoyed the tea. We tried five different kinds. They were all nice but we didn’t like the chocolate blissed. It had a bad after taste. The only thing was it was a to big of delay between courses.
Thank you for a fun afternoon. I had my sister and best friend with me.

Four of us were seated promptly when the doors opened & selected 2 teas for the table. We were then served in courses scones, sorbet, quiche, sandwiches, & pastries. The teas were good & hot, & the food was tasty & freshly prepared. The tea room had a lovely atmosphere & decor. Since it has about half a dozen tables, it had an intimate feel to it, & it was easy to chat with those at our table. There were also hats available to have pictures taken in a festive spirit. The hostess & servers were all polite & helpful. All in all, a lovely time with friends. I would recommend the outing to others. Oh, but bring a light sweater.

I would give Hidden Tea Room another opportunity in hopes that the painfully horrible service was just that day. Took over 2hrs:15 min just for their servicing. Seemed unorganized, understaffed and server wasn’t very nice or even educated about tea, what was in the food or that an upside down/tilted lid on a teapot meant the teapot was empty. My friends and I do tea rooms regularly. A large group of them will be going on June 8th. I hope their experience is better.

We loved our experience at Hidden Tea Room! We did a girls’ get together and had so much fun at “High Tea.” They had hats we can use for the experience, the scones are to die for, and the tea sandwiches were really good. We highly recommend this place, and will be returning soon!

It was so nice to go in and you totally felt like you were on London at tea time. Only thing is I wish there was more room and that they offered to show you there outside other than that it was an unique experience. Definitely will go back there again.

Very happy with the service and delicious food provided. Many options of tea, bottomless tea, made this tea lover very happy. Dietary restrictions were accommodated without a problem and substitutes were just as delicious. Will return for a special occasion outing with a friend again or even a date.
Reservations required but very worth it for the warm scones.

We had a saturday high tea reservation for 2 from 11a-1pm. Enjoyed a multi-course meal and as much tea as we wanted. Service and ambience were exceptional. The food was delicious and spaced out well. I would love to return and try their other tea options ( cream tea/ queens tea/ special tea events)
