"No visit to Ocean Grove is complete without an old-fashioned afternoon tea served up by Jane Wehr, and Bojana & Ivan Sokolovic..."
                                                       from Trips & Getaways Magazine, summer 2008
                           TEA BY THE SEA

Tea by the Sea is Ocean Grove's only Victorian Tea room, located just steps from the shore in the beautiful Lillagaard Hotel.
We welcome you to our tearoom where the hustle and bustle of the world seems to fade away as quietly as an ebbing tide.
Every-day clatter and cell phone chatter are replaced with the peaceful hum of friendly conversation along with the soft clinking of fine china, teacups and saucers, all family heirlooms.

We endeavor to make our tea service an elegant occasion: Our tearoom is replete with beautiful hats and bonnets, offering you the opportunity to dress for tea. We serve delicious fresh seasonal finger sandwiches, which we periodically change from season to season, house made scones and sweets, along with fruit and chocolate.

Our enticing edibles, serene setting and special touches will transport you to a bygone era when ladies and gentlemen enjoyed the leisure taking of afternoon tea or the restorative cuppa in the late afternoon.
The Taking of Tea

We serve a full afternoon tea in our Victorian Tea Room. Our menu includes assorted tea sandwiches, house-made English scones, lemon squares and seasonal fresh fruit. We offer an extensive array of teas.
If you wish, your afternoon tea will be served on your choice of fine china: Country Roses, Limoges, Rosenthal or on an elegant variety of china patterns, all family heirlooms. Please indicate your preference when making your reservation.
