Charming atmosphere, excellent food. Whether it was the enjoyment of dining with great friends, or the complete charm of the place, our experience at Tannalee's was outstanding. We took a break from the fast-paced world and enjoyed a leisurely lunch simply eating ourselves silly. Everything from the eclectic collection of china cups and saucers, to the red feather boa on my chair, made the occasion one to remember. And our hostess, Ms. Tannalee, was friendly and engaging. Bring your appetite...you're going to need it.
Quaint & Magical in a rustic historical setting.
The owner Tanalee is simply enchanting; a hostess perfectly matched to the setting. I felt like I was at a friends house for a party. The courtyard is rustic, surrounded by historic buildings, and the mismatched retro yard fruniture will only adds to the feeling like you're at your aunts house for a party.
I'd never even heard of the place and went there to deliver an antique light fixture. Although I'm normally shy to the point of being anti-social, the regulars kept me talking non-stop until last call.
This would be the perfect spot for a second or third date for an artsy/intellectual couple that want to relax and chat in a pseudo intimate setting, without being hurried & hounded by the wait staff or uptight yuppies.
PLUS-- you can smoke here!!!
Cute as a button, shabby chic tea room. This sweet little dollhouse of a tearoom has a wide variety of looseleaf green and black teas to choose from. I like the Kyoto cherry green tea, but regulars swear by the house blend of black tea with hints of peach and apricot. All teas are available hot or iced. They've also just added some specialty coffees and the vintage-style cooler (nicknamed Marie Antoinette) is full of locally-made tarts and cupcakes. You can order all kinds of goodness from a simple fresh-baked scone to a light lunch to a full high tea with finger sandwiches, fruit and more. It's a hidden treasure just off Main Street, not far from Bastrop's antique and resale shops. Ample free parking on the street and nearby lots.
Quirky, Tiny Tearoom Is Worth a Day Trip!. Tanalee's Tea and Sympathy Tea Room is worth a trip if you are not already shopping downtown in Old Town Bastrop. Find delicious teas, coffees, pastries and lunch in this quirky, unique little gem of a place. Come as you are, have a blast - you will love it......and there is ONLY one!
Relaxing Place with Amazing Desserts!. This is a wonderful secret in historic Downtown Bastrop! It is a quaint tea room with delicious looking salads & sandwiches. I have had the desserts twice now & they are Delicious! We tried the fruit tarts, chocolate mouse cups, apple & carmel tarts & the lemon scones. Everything is so fresh! My kids fight over the extra ones! I stopped in there last Wednesday and there was a flutist & mandolin player sitting on the front porch playing for the patrons seated in the outdoor courtyard. You could hear it from inside as well because they had the windows open for us. This truly is a place to relax and enjoy!
