Went there this past holiday season (2013) with my mom and daughter, and LOVED it. Great service, left feeling full, (wasn't even hungry for a real dinner that night) and the atmosphere was lovely. Would go again for sure.
Best Afternoon Tea Denver 2011 - Denver Tea Room - CLOSED
The Denver Tea Room is tucked into a front room of a nineteenth-century Colfax mansion that now houses a bed-and-breakfast, and it's the perfect setting for lazy, weekend English-style tea service as well as book clubs, which meet in the room at night for heady intellectual discussion over hot drinks and cookies. During the holidays, the tea room (no relation to the legendary downtown spot of the same name) also serves an elaborate high tea on linen-clothed tables — or in a cozy, private parlor. Never-empty teacups supplement a multi-course affair that includes shepherd's pie, a tea tray of scones and finger sandwiches, and sweet spice cakes. You can while away several hours with this ritual, sinking back into a velvety couch in the sunroom for a long conversation.
Surprising... Brought my mom here for Mother's Day, terrible service, tiny, unappetizing portions, could not even get the waitress to fill the tea cups after the first serving. I apologized to my mom and took her down the street to Pete's so she did not go home hungry.
