Top Tea Rooms in Tampa Bay
The Top Tea Rooms in Tampa Bay is a close race. I love tea and I love Tampa Bay, which makes me the perfect person for exploring the area to see which tea rooms are sure to please.
Moffit’s Cup of Tea in Dunedin is one of those tea houses that cannot be missed, It is the perfect place for a Bridal Shower, time with friends or just a quiet time alone. Moffit’s won the Best of Tampa Bay 2014 by Tampa Bay Magazine for the best cup of tea. Quaint and surpassing expectation is what Dunedin is all about and Moffit’s Cup of Tea is no exception.

The Empress Tea Room and Bistro is unbelievable. Not only does this modern tea room (with clean lines) have a nice pot of tea waiting for you, but also tons of fun. The Empress is known for their parties– its Murder Mystery parties. Who would have thought tea parties and murder mystery?

Known as one of Tampa’s oldest running tea rooms, the Royal Tea Room is a staple among tea enthusiasts in Tampa Bay. What is so nice about the Royal Tea Room is that the tea room is also a quaint shoppe with product lines like Vera Bradley. The decor is more modern and less fussy. The food is divine. I have heard tell that the owner makes everything herself.

The Jewell Cafe in Belleair Bluffs is a favorite for their location, service and food. Fresh desserts, hot tea and tons of Devonshire cream make the Jewell Cafe the best kept secret of Pinellas County. The atmosphere is feminine, but not fussy. The prices are on par with most tea houses about town. Please call one day ahead for afternoon tea.

Victorian Grace Tea Room is the sort of tea room that has hats out for the guests to wear and enough Southern Charm to put one in diabetic coma. Prices are on par, with varied price points on the menu. To finalize it, a very charming dining room.
