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 33 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 thrilled to be open once again and we can't wait to see all the happy faces of our loyal customers! We also want to express our gratitude to everyone who helped us through the crisis of the past 18 months, whether you contributed to our GoFundMe campaign or stocked up on your favorite teas from the Queen Mary Tea Emporium. We would not have made it through without you! 

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
