Your deposit protects both you and Emma's Tea Room.
All reservations for 12 people or more require a deposit:
$25 for up to 15 people
$50 for 16 people or more
The deposit is non-refundable in case the party cancels.
The deposit comes off the final bill if the party shows.
For LUNCH reservations, there will be a two-person grace for no -shows. If there are more than two no-shows, there will be a $5 charge per no-show deducted from the deposit. (An exception will be made in case of severe weather.)
For example, if you reserve a room for 16 and only 14 show, there will be no charge. But if only 13 show, $5 will be deducted from your deposit. If only 12 people show, $10 will be deducted.
For Afternoon Tea reservations, you will be charged for the full amount of the number of people you tell us to prepare for.
Thank you so much for understanding that when we make reservations, we frequently turn other customers away, we prepare food accordingly, and we staff accordingly.
For your convenience, you may pay your deposit using PayPal.
