TeaTime 15: Notable Tearooms That Have Stood The Test of Time

TeaTime 15: Notable TearoomsTilly Mint’s Tea Room
20 West Chestnut Street • Souderton, PA 18964  

Served at most breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, tea was a custom Trish Stubbs practiced throughout her youth. Growing up in a very British household in Pennsylvania, Trish was the first member of her family born in the United States. Her family called her Tilly Mint, a popular epithet in parts of Liverpool. It was this moniker that eventually inspired the name for her own tearoom. A visit to Tilly Mint’s is akin to stepping into a British-themed wonderland. Subtle details, such as the name of each tea service, honor her family and her British heritage. The Wavertree, the full tea service, includes a three-tiered stand full of traditional tea delicacies, tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets. Afternoon tea ranges from $8.50 to $23 per person. Tilly Mint’s is open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by telephone.


  1. Great tearooms. You must check out Josephine’s in Godfrey, IL. You will love it. Not only excellent food, great atmosphere, but room after room of shopping for clothes and the home. We love it! In fact, I am taking my granddaughter there for her 17th birthday this Saturday. Thanks for listening. Barb Dalby

  2. My granddaughter and I had a weekend tea retreat at several tea shops .in Southern California. We went to the Rose Tree Tea Cottage and also Paris In A Cup. The experience was really very nice. We attended another which was also quite enjoyable. It was the Huntington Library and Museum which has a wonderful tea room.
