Queen Mary Tea Room

I had been wanting to try the Queen Mary Tea Room for some time and I am so glad I finally got the chance! This place has been around for over 20 years and is a must-see in Seattle (if you are into tea, of coarse!) Since the new Alice in Wonderland had come out that weekend, the entire menu was based on characters and lines from the story. This was a treat before we got the 3-tiered afternoon tea...Royal Sorbet Gems and The "Eat Me" shortbread. I ordered Grape Pomegranate Green tea, which was delicious. We also got to sample a couple other teas, which were equally as good.
Here is the tiered platter of goodness. My favorite part was the sticker of the Mad Hatter:) There was this crazy-delicious chocolate cake hiding amongst the fruit, which was easily in the top 5 cakes I've had!

The rest of the platter included:
Alice’s strawberry tea bread
“Off with their heads!” cranberry orange scone
Cheshire cat crumpet
“Never too late” chocolate cake
Caterpillar mushroom meringue
Hedgehog macaroon
The Queen’s red rose lemon cupcake
Cinnamon sugar scepter
Down the rabbit hole fresh fruit
Pink flamingo smoked salmon crostini
White rabbit carrot tea sandwich
Bread and butterflies chicken tea sandwich
Tweedledee’s raspberry pinwheel tea sandwich
Tweedledum’s vegetarian quiche
Mrs. Pig’s sausage roll

Everything was great and the 3 of us that went were not able to finish it. I would probably go back for a special occasion, but not was a bit spendy;)


  1. Looks amazing!! How does it stack up to Alice's Tea Cup in NYC? :)

  2. Actually...I think I prefer Alice's in NYC...the scones and sandwiches were much better:)

  3. FUN FUN FUN!! This may sound really weird, but after you posted about your NYC Tea experience I had a dream I was in NY with my family and I HAD to find that tea place. That is the only time I have had blog related dreams. Crazy huh?
    I think it is because this place and that place look so fun and delish. Love it!

  4. What a great idea for that business to base their menu off of Alice and Wonderland!! I love it. I really want to see that movie too, I'm trying to convince Nick to come with me :)

  5. I've been wanting to try that place! After your review, I think I'm going to try to take my lil sis when she visits next week.
