We go to Lovejoy’s pretty frequently. We love having tea there and the scones are delicious! Our favorite thing though is Indian Night. You need reservations, you need to have time to devote to enjoying a four course meal, but no where else will you have a better meal with a nicer bunch of folks. Saag paneer I � you!
I eat here almost weekly, love the place. Excellent food, hearty and healthy. They have a lot of teas to choose from, I suggest the Yorkshire Gold. The Salmon bisque soup, the meatloaf special and the chicken curry sandwich are a must. They do an Indian dinner once a month also, I don't miss them. It's authentic Indian and they make it spicy, not spicy and a vegetarian version so we all get a taste of what we like. The two ladies that run the place, mother and daughter do a great job of making you feel welcome. I suggest you reserve the wing back chairs, you may fall asleep. Cheers!
My family of six made reservations on their Indian food night our table was not ready when we got there. there wasn't that many people in there so I don't understand why our table was not ready. Not enough food was provided for our family and all the food was very Bland and flavorless we waited forever to get our food to get drinks the service was friendly but terrible. I was so excited to go there for their Indian food night and I was let down horribly for the amount of money that we paid for the dinner it was pretty ridiculous what we got served.
Love visiting Lovejoy's! Food is amazing, service is excellent and atmosphere quaint. Love it!
So comfortable, friendly family operated. GOOD FOOD !!!!
My group of ladies have lunch here every Wednesday. The food is fabulous, the daily specials change every week, the variety of teas are excellent. The Burnem family who own and operate the restaurant are awesome. A must for lunch if you're in town. Reservations a must.
While we usually enjoy our many trips to Lovejoys, yesterday's trip was an exception. Our breakfast was way below standard. The baked beans looked and tasted like they were over cooked in a microwave. The sausages rolls were bad, the sausage was hard and the pastry was limp. The bacon was dry and hard even though we asked for the bacon not to be over cooked. We are hoping this was an isolated bad experience.
Good for one time.Sausage rolls not very good.
Awesome service!! Had the special High Tea, the food was good. I would have preferred some of the savory heated. I will go back.
I wish we had something like this in Salem!! What a sweet place we happened upon on our vacation. Very friendly service, and delicious tea! Next time we'll have to try their food.
Had lunch here yesterday with my folks who were visiting from California. We had a wonderful time. Food was awesome and the staff was welcoming and friendly. This place is very unique
Wonderful foods, friendly atmosphere, caring people to serve folks. Take the time to stop and enjoy a cup of tea, or coffee, lunch and desserts. One of Florence's tucked away treasures!
Delicious and delightful. What a rare treat. Scones were yummy, the quiche just the right consistency, and the clam chowder outstanding. The staff were incredibly nice.
My favorite place. Love the Salmon Bisque! The owners and their staff treat you like family! Love the ambience! 💜💜💜💜💜
The food is wonderful. The people are wonderful. Can't think of enough superlatives to describe it. Best clam chowder in town (I don't like the thick stuff). Excellent weekly specials for something a bit different from the regular menu. A wide and varied selection of teas, naturally, and High Tea if you're so inclined. Plus really good French press coffee, too. And Heather's desserts are to die for! Oh! And a special dinner monthly (many times, but not always, the exotic foods of India).
When we were planning our retirement budget a few years ago, my husband and I specifically put in a monthly lunch at Lovejoy's. The atmosphere always relaxes me, and every food item i have eaten there over the past five years has been great to taste and an enjoyment to eat. The owners are hospitable and so friendly. I cant say enough good things about Lovejoy's.
We had a lovely Mother's Day Tea! Eclectic ambiance, warm-friendly staff, and delicious food and tea. We will be back very soon!
This place has great food and fantastic service! I love going!
I love this place! We feel at home, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Not to mention the yummy food.
Amazing food and friendly staff. It's beautifully decorated and a wonderful place to visit.
Best place to be in Florence! Cute, cozy and overall excellent! The owners we very friendly, professional. Family owned and ran. Just loved it. Can't say enough good things about it. Go, go, go!!
Lovejoy's is a delightful experience with excellent service, beautiful presentation and delicious food options in an atmosphere of calm elegance.
Celebrated a birthday lunch yesterday...enjoyed a slice if delicious broccoli cheese quiche, cauliflower chowder and ended with Irish bread pudding with Baileys on it! Yummy! Thank you Heather!
Wonderful selection of teas. We were late arriving but they stayed open for us and didn't rush us. The Salmon bisque was superb. The entire lunch was worth the two hour drive.
The food, the service, the tea... I could go on and on! I try to go here as often as I can this is my favorite place!
Lovejoys is a sweet little Tea shop that I greatly enjoy eating at. The service is awesome, the people are sweet and the food is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is uplifting, and its very welcoming. Its definitely a Must-Go-to place!
If you can make in to this amazing place I highly recommend this restaurant everything is great!!!!! Try the salmon bisque! Even the environment is super amazing always feel the love and heart!
I definitely have my favourite items, the Salmon Bisque and the Curry Chicken Pasty are out of this world.
The Bangers and Mash are the the bomb! Truly excellent food. We are so glad to have found this gem in Old Town Florence!!
Very enjoyable dining experience. The atmosphere is very unique and the staff is very friendly. The food is top notch and the whole experience was more than we expected.
What a gem! Small, but so comfortable. All homemade, but a gourmet delight. Sophisticated, but cozy. I've passed by Lovejoy's many times, but this was my first visit. Met three friends here for lunch and on a busy day we were made to feel as if we were the only customers - or at least the most important ones. Between us we tried the Mocha Coffee and three wonderful teas (Blooming Jasmine is an amazing visual experience), Salmon Bisque, Mixed Greens Salad, Roasted Red Pepper Quiche, Vegetable Pasty, and Cottage Pie. Scones with Clotted Cream and Jam for dessert. Every bite, from start to finish, was delicious. Everything, down to the clever use of clothes clips, was perfect. Attentive without hovering, the staff here knows every dish on the menu and every nuance of every tea. It would be a shame to be in Florence and not visit Lovejoy's. (Also reviewed on Yelp.)
Another fine English tea at Lovejoy's. TravelGnome Tim says "come visit, it's great!"
This is a place you do not want to miss. The food is very good and the host owner friendly.
A place you don't want to miss. It is in the historic part of town, off 101.
Great food for a lite meal and wonderful tea. Excellent service too. Everybody smiles and is super polite.
Super delicious and so worth eating here! Staff extra pampers and takes care of all the customers! It was nice looking around and seeing the owners talking with the patrons in a personal way.
If you go to Florence you really need to try Lovejoys Restaurant. Lovey place to sit & eat. The food and the atmosphere are amazing!
What a delightful surprise when we found Lovejoys in a new location in Old Town Florence. Then to discover it is now a beautiful tearoom. My husband and I enjoyed our pot of Jasmine Blossom tea, our delicious lunch, and raisin bread pudding dessert. Yum! Thank you Heather and Hannah (did I spell your name right?) We will definitely make it back to see you the next time we are in town.
When I lived in Florence Oregon, this was one of the best places to have a spot of tea, especially their famous Royal Tea! What a treat! Marvelous food and tea, and the owners are the nicest people... and her scones are to die for... Never have tasted any as good as hers! I have been to a few tea houses since I moved to California many years ago, but my heart will always be with Lovejoy's in Oregon!!
I just happened into this great little tea room for lunch today and was very pleasantly surprised. I will definitely be back when I visit Florwnce again in the future.
We discovered this gem completely by accident, and highly recommend it for a little slice of Britannia -- loved the high tea. We plan to return later this year!
My husband and I, and a dear friend, had the loveliest couple of hours here on our honeymoon! The experience was totally new to James and he repeated how "nice an afternoon" it was a dozen times throughout the remainder of the day. The food was delicious, the atmosphere delightful and the owners so kindhearted and genuine! A truly beautiful memory!
absolutely great! loved the food and the people! Liam - I'm coming back just to joke with you. Most fun I had in a long time!
We take a yearly trip to the west coast and we make sure we have a visit to Lovejoy's Tea Room. Excellent service, very well done and enjoyable. Thank you.
Amazing enjoyabe personable and delicious!!!! We will def be going back!! Well worth it all and fun
Lovely...the owners are geacious and the soups are magnificent!
We happened on Lovejoy's totally by accident. (Just wanted some clam chowder and Mo's was PACKED). It was one of the greatest accidents we've had. Instead of rather run of the mill chowder, we had an excellent homemade chowder and fish there. I loved it so much, we have made the drive to Florence from Eugene a couple of times, solely to enjoy the amazing Royal Tea. The owners are friendly and engaging, and the tea is presented in a true fashion on adorable tiered tea trays, finger cut sandwiches, little scones, the full experience. I just love this place!
Charming and yummy!
In my opinion, the best tearoom/lunch place to go with family and best friend. Salmon bisque is a must and the crepes are fabulous!
Charming authentic British tearoom. ..Our favorite spot to relax over delicious food Our faves are the salmon bisque, autumn soup and bread pudding. Yum yum!
