Though I live in the next neighborhood over, I'd never been to Dr. Bombay's till now- I had no idea what I was missing! This tea house, is cozy, with a beautiful personality. If you're looking for an upscale and pretentious cafe experience this is NOT the place. A true neighborhood gem. Tea selection is amazing, and I love their... More

Rude service, dry packaged food, very crowded space, grungy looking and feeling, handicapped entrance/exit dangerous. ( may not be legal. Dangerous drop off) Do not expect a nice "High Tea". Will not recommend to others. Having second thoughts about donating books.

It seemed the only guests having a good time at Dr. Bombay's were those with headphones working on their computers using the free wifi. Also, children coming in for ice cream. This space is not conducive for intimate/special tea parties, large or small, due to table set up and rude inept service.

I really wanted to contribute to the charity at Dr.Bombay's, which supports young women in India, so we decided to have a High tea bridal shower for 20 guests costing over $500.00. Unfortunately the Manager was rude from the minute we got there. She chastised me for being ten minutes early while I was lugging two bags of books to... More

My husband and I brought my mother-in-law here for her 72nd birthday. She is British and we thought she might enjoy the experience. When we first arrived, the girl behind the counter said "we don't really do tables, just sit wherever you can fit in." We found 3 open seats at the end of a long table with other guests.... More

We had afternoon tea (which included a tea caddy full of pastries) which was very good. In a hipster-y part of town (in case you're not into that vibe)

We had reservations for 4 for a birthday for a close friend. They prepared the best table in the entire restaurant for us - right in the bay window so we could see the view. The selection of teas is just fantastic. It was hard to decide on just two! But we took our server's suggestions and we were not... More

I found this place via Pinterest. I checked out their website and decided to give it a try. It's very quirky and whimsical. It's like a thrift store meets coffee house. I checked out their website and decided to do a high tea reservation online. They did not ask for CC info and it's pretty self explanatory. They did not... More

In January I contacted Dr. Bombay's and made High Tea reservations for a small Bridal Party in May. I paid my deposit right away. As the contract requests, I updated my head count appropriately. Several days prior to my reservation I was offered the patio seating space and informed that my party would be given 2 picnic tables "that can... More

This fun and quirky place has shelves lined with books you can enjoy onsite or purchase for $1.00 each. The menu includes a wide variety of teas along with a selection of desserts and bakery items such as scones. You can order tea by the cup or by the pot. There are several seating areas including chairs and tables, long... More
