Looking for a place to take tea… with your man? Welcome to TownHouse Tea Shoppe in Mt Laurel. The creators of one of the 280 corridor’s newest restaurants want you to do just that. Co-owners Darlene Self and Rebekah Mills set out to create “a place where men are comfortable too.”
“What about the portions?” he might ask. “We also wanted to create a place where anyone can come and get really great food, with a great presentation, but also with very adequate portions,” adds Darlene. “We eat with our eyes first.” So, don’t be surprised when the meal before you looks as presentable as any five-star dining establishment, but this time, you’ll leave full and satisfied!
All is home-made. Everything coming out of the kitchen is made from scratch. There are no uppity chefs preparing your meals – just two women with a passion for food and hospitality, creating mouth-watering meals you won’t soon forget.
Each day of the week features a special entrée such as Pot Roast, Cranberry Chicken, Shepherd’s Pie or Salmon Croquetes. In addition, there are daily soups served such as Tomato Provence, and French Onion. Delectable salads and delicious sandwiches are served everyday. I tried Hannah’s Famous Chicken-Bacon-Ranch salad (pictured here) – THE BEST chicken salad I’ve ever tasted. I WISH I could get the recipe!
The tea shoppe seats up to 40, but for special events, they will open up the upper room and spill over into the street to accommodate up to 50-60. So definitely take a look at The TownHouse Tea Shoppe for your next bridal shower, luncheon, rehearsal dinner, corporate banquet, etc. The upper room is complete with small kitchen, living room, billiards room, restroom – basically, it’s like renting a small house for the evening.

Now let’s talk about tea! Perhaps the whole reason Darlene and Rebekah opened this shoppe was to create a place where people “set aside time to have an enjoyable experience.” You’ll find excellent tea selections as well as the ultimate in fair trade and gourmet coffee choices. So come, slow down, and enjoy the soothing benefits of a cup of tea, the tranquil atmosphere and the best in southern hospitality. Darlene and Rebekah would love nothing more than to serve you next!
