“You're in for a treat!”  As a restauranteur myself I appreciate and understand all the work that has gone into creating this reputable tea room. The owner is an absolute delight. The tea and scones were a lovely afternoon treat! Look forward to returning very soon!  Visited November 2016

A proper tea in the desert: Off the beaten path a little is one of my family’s newest destination traditions – the English Rose Tea Room. This quaint, proper high-tea room with fresh scones, intoxicating teas and special surprises for desert has been my family’s official Mother’s Day outing for three years running and it’s open all year round!

Could you ever imagine coming to Arizona and finding tucked away a truly magical place like fairy land my eyes could not stop looking I felt like a child again especially when I met the owner who was like mary poppins and this was all before we tasted the delicious food and hot scones and cream and jam and of course real English tea.We then went to the shop next door which was full of wonderfull gifts, the only sad part was having to leave and on my return home to England I will look for something so special,but I bet I never find it.

“The REAL Deal” We have traveled quite a bit in the UK. The high tea here was wonderful. Things are just as pictured. The service was absolutely perfect - gracious and prompt. Visited November 2016

There’s an English rose in the East Valley that refuses to wilt in the summer heat…the English Rose Tea Room is a refined desert oasis.

Located on Easy Street in Carefree is an unexpected oasis where you can enjoy one of life’s truest delights – the civilized pleasure of taking time for tea…walking into the charming English Rose Tea Room, I suddenly felt transported to England…

“The Best Lunch Experience Ever”  The English Rose Tea Room is beautifully decorated, fun and the most enjoyable experience you will have. The meals are delicious, freshly prepared to a very high standard. The service from the first greeting throughout the meal is wonderful. The owner Jo, originally from England, has created and delivered on her mission: "Relax and indulge yourself in the utterly civilized pleasure of taking time for tea". The teas with our lunch were perfect. I really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and experience. I cannot rave about it enough to do it justice. Visited November 2016

I had never been to a tearoom before. This was my first time. I decided to bring my Mother & Sister who were in visiting from New York. We were all blown away with the adorable venue. The service was friendly and made us feel at home. The food was unexpectedly delicious. The atmosphere was exceptionally whimsical as there was live music, violins playing in the tearoom. Our experience here was talked about for days and I believe the highlight of Mom & Sis’s visit to AZ. My mother will be back to visit me in February 2007 and we will be sure to make another reservation at the English Rose, possibly an event that must take place everytime Mother is in town. Thank you English Rose for an enjoyable afternoon.

Wow….what a wonderful find! Thanks to Yelp for the directions….don’t think we would have found it otherwise. This was truly a treat….I was finally able to share with my husband some scones…I also wanted him to try some crumpets but unfortunately they were out…but an excellent excuse to have to go back! We ordered the Earl of Sandwich which was a delicious selection of 6 tea sandwiches, our favourite being the chicken with nutmeg and tarragon, edged with walnuts. We also shard a pot of Paris Tea which was a blend of vanilla, caramel and bergamot oil….truly divine! For dessert we both had a scone with jam and cream…once again delicious….the cream also was very, very tasty. The Tea Room is decorated beautifully so you really do feel as if you are in an English Tea Room in Engand. The soft classical music was also a great accompaniment to the overall relaxing feel. The fine china topped it all off. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back to try the Duchess of Bedford’s Formal Afternoon Tea which is served on a three tiered cake stand and has such goodies as sandwiches, scones, petite fours and a pot of tea. And we of course will also be back for the crumpets. This is a wonderful spot for lunch or if you just feel like some dessert and tea. There was even the option of salads that looked very appetising or appetizing…already slipped back into English spelling having spent some time there! lol As we were leaving the owner informed us of her gift store next door….definitley worth a look….some great gift ideas. Highly recommend this special little spot.

Hello fellow tea lovers! I am writing to describe my superb experience at the English Rose Tea Room in Cave Creek Arizona. Having never been there before and being a tea enthusiast, my expectations were a bit “queasy.” However after talking to a lovely young girl named Cari, she informed me that my insecurities would soon vanish. And so they did. Walking in the tea room I was greeted by both the hostess and the girl Cari. Though Cari seemed very busy she dropped everything and thus sat me. The table was small for three people but still lovely. The tables were decorated with antique cards and lace and everything seemed clean and dainty. Cari served us with excellence while maintaining the very crowded desk-area. Though obviously busy none of the staff seemed a bit stressed and ALL were very helpful and caring. One of my guests was elderly and needed assistance to her table from which I was planning on giving myself. To my surprise Cari and the hostess provided two strong arms and helped my elderly guest to and from her table and even to get a vintage hat! Guests of ALL ages have to see the hat room it is very fun. The food was flavorful and the servings appropriate. The tea was very good, I branched out an tried the “paris” tea from which I was much pleased with. The tea room itself was adorable and the service was the best I have had yet. Fellow tea lovers this is a MUST

If I could give this place six stars I would. Authentic imports, including devon cream, scottish treats (made in Scotland, not a USA affiliate) and the most heavenly tea you could ever imagine. Very quaint, cozy and perfect way to slow down and share a civilized experience. Very reasonably priced. It's a very different experience than you will find at the Four Seasons, Phoenician or the former Ritz Carlton, but equally intimate and special. Appreciate the authentic scones!
