About Our Tea Room

Queen Mary Tea Room 
Queen Mary Tea Room is the oldest independently owned tea room in America. We opened our doors in 1988 and have been providing tea service and fine dining to Seattle and its visitors for 34 years. 
Queen Mary offers an experience that has attracted tea lovers from all over the world. Reviewers rave - “best tea place in the world,” “Queen Mary Tea Room is a must experience,” and “a tradition since my college days.” Tea lovers revel in the traditional British afternoon tea rituals. Ladies of every age celebrate birthdays, holidays, showers and special occasions by donning tiaras and sipping tea - pinkies extended - from fine English bone china teacups. Grandmothers and granddaughters bridge the generations while nibbling on cranberry orange scones, crumpets and and all the delights of a Formal Afternoon Tea. The experience is not just for ladies. Gentlemen have been frequenting the Queen Mary Tea Room from our earliest days to enjoy what one patron described as "incredible food, incredible service and intimate atmosphere."
We are so grateful for the support we received from all of our loyal customers! From the closure of the COVID-19 pandemic to the replacement of our entire plumbing system, we would've never made it through without everyone who reached out, contributed to our GoFundMe campaign and made purchases online to keep us going. We are truly humbled at the generosity shown to Queen Mary Tea when we needed it most! 
We hope you come let us treat you to a very special experience and create some new memories with us.
Stay Healthy, Be Safe and Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!
Queen Mary
