Unfortunately food was partially cold when it reached the table. Table service was terrible- we had to get our own water and glasses. We were left with food and no cutlery. Very disappointing

We.dropped in for morning tea on a family holiday. The drinks were nice and well presented, with a mix of coffee, tea, milkshake and lemonade between us. A scone each with jam and cream completed an enjoyable break.

No fuss tea gardens with excellent food and service. King prawns were amazing. The waitress who served us was very pleasant and obviously trying hard to do a good job. The place doesn't serve alcohol but has a good selection of drinks nevertheless. Would recommend...More

How do I edit my review? I made an error. Inadvertently, I referred the Teagardens Cafe as a hotel(meaning the Watson's Bay Hotel, which is really the place I initially intended to review). I really don't know how long the Teagardens Cafe has been there, but I would like to visit as I like the sound of the menu and of course the location. My apologies for confusion.

I'm not sure how you edit your review - maybe try the help section? (it's under the three dots on the menu) The Teagardens Café has been there for a while and it's lovely. I certainly recommend it.
Do you allow dogs on outside patio?
