The Things I Love - Tearoom

Our quaint tearoom is located in the back of the shop in a "garden room" right off the outdoor courtyard. It has only three tables and we like to have only eight to ten guests at a time. This keeps it small and intimate and we treat you like a guest in our home. We have so enjoyed hosting our weekly teas and our guests have been raving about their experience.

We serve a full afternoon tea and the food is prepared by Chef Mary Anne Moreau. She comes to us from Southwestern Pennsylvania where she worked as Chef and Cafe Manager for Fallingwater, the famous Frank Lloyd Wright designed house. We are so happy her husband was transferred to Virginia!

The dates Teas are served are emailed to our customers monthly. However, if you are a party of 6 or more, please call for additional dates. Call Joanne at 703-335-7711 for a reservation.
