Enjoy a cup of tea at one of Northern Ohio’s area tea rooms.

One of my favorite things to do is grab a family member, friend or friends and enjoy an afternoon of tea.  It’s a wonderful way to slow down and enjoy great conversation.   It’s also a great way to explore new areas.  Over the last year, I have taken time to enjoy tea at some of Northern Ohio’s area tea rooms. Below you will find information about those tea rooms, as well as our #MyOhioFun Road Trip notes, listing additional areas of interest near each tea room.  As I continue to visit Ohio’s tea rooms, I will update the list.

It’s always a good idea to call ahead for reservations, since many of the tea rooms may already have bookings or hosting a special event.

Quintealia’s Tea Parlor

A few years ago I had to opportunity to bring my “Fall in Love with Ohio” bus tour to this charming Victorian tea parlor located on the Square in Burton, OH.  Quintealia’s Tea Parlor resides in the historic Ford House, a 1891 mansion built by George H. Ford, Burton’s first mayor.  Since my tour, I have taken others to enjoy tea at the tea parlor and every time we are not disappointed.

Two of my favorite dishes to order are the Beef Cottage Pie and the Farmer’s Market Quiche.  Your visit would not be complete without enjoying one of their fresh baked scones, served with Devonshire cream and jam.
