I recently visited Tilly’s Tea Room in Fishers (click to read more about our experience!) but here are a few other places to have tea with your little prince or princess in the Indianapolis area!
Occasions Devine in Zionsville
Reservations are recommended for this tea room, offering a children’s tea from 2:30pm-4pm. Prices for the children’s tea is $18 per adult and $9 per child. Space is limited, so reservations are definitely a must if you’re planning a party. There is a theme for nearly every month of the year for the children’s teas. July offers an American Girl theme, September offers a Grandmother & Me Tea, and October offers (what else?!) a Spooky Tea. For more information, visit www.occasionsdevine.com/childrens-tea.html. They are located at 135 S Main St Zionsville, IN, and contact phone is 317-796-6700.
Sassafras Tea Room in Greenwood
Sassafras offers a princess tea for $14 a person, which includes tea, scones, sandwich, and treats. They serve lunch from 11am-3pm Monday through Saturday, with English tea parties after 2:30. Evenings and Sundays are available for groups. They are a family owned and operated business, and you can contact them via their website at www.sassafrastearoom.com/english-tea/ .

Aunt Ruthie’s Tea Time in Indianapolis
Specializing in private parties, Aunt Ruthie’s offers themed parties in a Victorian setting. Scheduling is recommended at least 4 weeks in advance, according to their website.

Tina’s Traditional Old English Tearoom in Carmel
Tina’s offers a Little Prince and Princess High Tea, in which a variety of tea time originals are offered. The menu consists of a choice of ham, grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, alongside fruit, shortbread, jam tart, and tea or fruit cordial. The cost of the Prince/Princess High Tea is $15 a person, and their hours are Monday through Sunday, 11am-4pm for lunch, with afternoon tea served all day. Brunch is served weekdays 9:30am-11am and Full English Breakfast is available Sundays at 11am. Reservations are recommended, but not always required. Tina’s Traditional Old English Tearoom is located at 30 N Range Line Rd Carmel, and their website can be found at www.tinastraditional.com.
Children’s Museum of Indianapolis
Ok, so this is totally cheating, but, hear me out. Did you know that the Children’s Museum offers a tea time exhibit? They do! In the Take Me There: China Exhibit, there is a traditional Chinese Tea House set up, in which children can discover the art of brewing and serving the traditional art of tea. There is a video demo, and role playing is encouraged around the tea table. Children are taught about the Chinese tradition of Gong Fu, encouraging physical and spiritual health, along with the hospitality and beauty that are embraced at tea time in China. See? That wasn’t so bad, although I have to admit that no one will be going to the Children’s Museum just to check out one exhibit, so while you’re there, run around and take full advantage of the magic that is Indianapolis Children’s Museum!
