Visited there again today after several years. This is a definite must go to place if you are in the area! The people are so pleasant and the service and food are equally as pleasing! Truly charming place where it seems time reverses away from the hustle and bustle of this century. The attached gift store is truly full of... More

Precious gem in Hamburg. The cafe is mostly geared for ladies. Relaxing atmosphere without the feeling anyone is rushing you to leave. The portions are rather small, but nicely prepared. It seemed the heat was on a very low setting, as all of us were freezing. I would like to give the place another try when the weather warms up.

The cafe is situated in one room of this adorable Victorian gift shop. They are about to celebrate 30 years in business at that location. The food was delicious and we each ordered our own pot of tea with lunch. Fresh soups are made each day and choice of soup or salad comes with any sandwich. If you order the... More

Added bonus in the attached gift shop which you can browse before or after your meal. Don't miss the hidden treasures that can found in the Carriage Consignment Shop in the... More

Enjoyable lunch at Calico Rose Cafe. My friend and I stopped while in the area and had a very nice time. We both ordered the Chicken Salad which was delicious.

Located in large Victorian house with many gift rooms, Calico Rose offers a varied menu selection. One might call it a tea room but coffee is served as well as other offerings. Casual dining, no rush, sit and relax with good food.
