Our Mission

The Kate Pearl Tea Room is an English-style tearoom designed to provide our customers with periods of respite while dining on freshly prepared foods of the highest quality accompanied by a wide variety of fine teas.

Our mission is to connect generations.  We see so many guests introducing the younger generations to the fine art of afternoon tea, and it brings us so much JOY!  We named our tea room in honor of our Great Great Grandmother, Kate Pearl Loose, who was known for always being quite the “put together” lady.  She wouldn’t even go to her mailbox without her hat & gloves, stockings, purse, and of course – her pearls!

Our tea room is a place to unwind.  To slow down.  To relax.  To celebrate.  To commemorate.  To connect.  To be pampered.  We like to think of it as a spa for the soul.
