Fancy That: Making Memories One Tea Cup at a Time

Fancy That: Making Memories One Tea Cup at a TimeAlthough the bungalow that houses Fancy That can accommodate 20 people or more at a time, Sarah and Brad try to not book too many at once so everyone gets proper service. Wednesday through Friday, seatings are at noon or 1:00. There is a two-hour seating Saturday and Sunday mornings at 11:00. Weekend afternoon seatings begin at 2:30 or 3:00. 

“One of the things that make our tearoom quaint is that you get the ambiance of being in someone’s home,” Sarah says. Two side rooms off the main dining room offer guests a private space for afternoon tea and, she says, remain in high demand. 

Although some customers come to this charming tearoom on Walpole’s Main Street to escape the busyness of life, others find it a perfect place to celebrate life events. “I like to think of myself as a memory maker,” she remarks. “I’m helping people make memories.” And she does it one teacup at a time.

Fancy That is located at 272 Main Street, Walpole, MA 02081. For afternoon-tea reservations or for more information, call 888-323-2832, or go to

  2. It is very strange that I am looking at a story about Fancy That Tea Room. My friends and I just went there yesterday. Brad can’t do enough to make your tea experience absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend going to Fancy That. I know I will be going back as soon as possible.

  3. Such a charming place, it’s like stepping into the dollhouse you dreamed of as a child and having a tea party. Make a reservation if you are in the area. You’ll love it!

  4. I went to Fancy That yesterday with my son. It was a Mother’s Day present from him. It took a while to get the reservation but was well worth the wait. I have not stopped talking about it to EVERYONE!! I had the most delightful time and just loved the atmosphere so much. I am a tea drinker from way back and this experience was like nothing I have ever had. The tea was wonderful, the food just right and Brad and Sarah the best hosts, so charming, fun and witty. I cannot say enough about my new love interest — Fancy That! I will be back with friends, with relatives, with anyone that wants to go with me!! Thank for a great experience!
