Tampa >Rosemary Cottage
this cottage is no longer in business :(. looking for a nice tea room to have a bridal shower. but this one is no longer in business. just thought i'd let visitors know.
I've been in Tampa since December 1985 and never heard of this place. Who (between the ages of 18-80) goes to a tea room and ranks it as one of the top 10 things to do in Tampa.
I do see a theme. Most of these places on Tampa's top 10 list are in South Tampa (aka: big money area). They are definitely using this website and top 10 list as a means of advertising.
Best birthday party ever.
The atmosphere is so pretty, and the food is delicious. I especially love the Devonshire cream, and the amber sugar crystals.
I had my birthday party here recently, with about 14 guests, and it was my best ever. Everyone loved it.
My friend and I also go for a traditional afternoon tea during my lunch hour. With reservations, we are seated immediately, served quickly, and back to work on time.
What a deligthful place. I'm so glad it's here. Highly recommended.
Unwind in pure elegance and enjoy Southern belle treatment during afternoon tea at one of the South's premiere tearooms..
Soft music and lighting set the scene for groups of giggling women and pairs of fathers and daughters sitting in themed areas, including the burgundy Shakespeare Room and pastel-pink Romeo and Juliet table. The boutique offers items from antiques to make-your-own rhinestone bracelets.
Walk-ins can choose tea from more than 80 varieties like spiced chai and smoky bourbon vanilla, but reserve a teatime for the entire experience. Courses arranged on a three-tiered platter are eaten from bottom to top on fine china. A silver tea warmer keeps your pot hot, and amber sugar crystals sweeten any cup. Enjoy traditional cucumber sandwiches on heart-shaped white bread, chunky chicken salad with sweet cranberries on buttery croissants, and orange scones with an almond glaze and Devonshire cream. The in-house pastry chef prepares crumbly tarts and brownies with rich raspberry spread. Finish with a refreshing lemon sorbet.
