"I had the privilege of visiting the Cross and Bluebird Tea Room today with my friends.
I have never enjoyed any
tea room this much. The atmosphere, the service, the food, the overall experience was well worth the drive from Maryland.
I would highly recommend this tea room to everyone!
With each course, there will be a smile and a memory!!!"
"We had a delightful visit to the Cross and Bluebird tea room for my Mom's 72nd birthday.
The food was delicious and decadent, the service cheery, and the tea divine. Laurie and Roger even celebrated with us by singing
'happy birthday' complete with a candle on the scrumptious cheesecake! We will definitely return again."
"My friends and I love to spend an afternoon together enjoying tea at Cross and Bluebird.
Laurie and Roger are wonderful hosts and Laurie prepares tea like none other. The atmosphere is calming and when you combine
