The White Linen Tea House

Last summer, I crossed the border and visited the White Linen Tea House in North Tonawanda, NY.

The tea house's cheery yellow colour and wrap around porch immediately won me over!

Room #1
The interior of the White Linen Tea House was just as beautiful as the outside. The entire first floor had been converted into a tea room! To date, this is the largest tea house that I've ever visited.

Room #2
The different rooms featured charming vintage decor and antiques.

Room #3
Teacups and teapots galore!

Room #4

Rooms #5 & #6
Tea-related merchandise was displayed throughout the house. 
Our table was located in Room #5 so I ogled the tea pretties while we waited for our food.

Our pretty table setting.

Brewing our tea.

Unfortunately, I couldn't recall the tea that I ordered. I think it was something fruity?
(This is what happens when you wait over a year to write up a tea visit! Blogging fail!)

The White Linen Tea House offered afternoon tea service, but I opted to order from their lunch menu and try their scrumptious Signature Chicken a la King. It tasted as AMAZING as it looked!

I was used to the soft, fluffy scones so I was surprised when they served scones that looked like lady fingers?!? But I was converted after the first delicious bite. We loved the tasty scones so much that we brought some home with us!

The White Linen Tea House gets A++ across the board for decor, food, and service. 
It was one of the best tea houses that I've ever visited! 

We went on a weekday so the tea house wasn't busy. If you visit on a weekend, reservations are a must!

After our delicious lunch, we walked over the to the adjacent Shawnee Country Barns Antique Co-Op. The HUGE barn was packed to the rafters with antiques! 

I will share the treasures that I found next week...

I'm joining the following parties this week:


  1. The White Linen Teahouse looks like a place that I would love to visit, Margie! I am always envious of your journeys to these wonderful places, and wish I could tag along. The food looked amazing, and I'd be ogling all the tea wares, too, while waiting for my food. I enjoyed seeing the timers for steeping the different teas. Thanks for sharing your excursion with us!
