Yes, fellow tea lovers, there really is an Aunt Bridget. And here is that story:

Just before 1900, Patrick & Johanna Donahue and their children emigrated from County Kerry, Ireland. Their youngest daughter, my grandmother Eleanor, was born in Connecticut, an true Irish-American.

Johanna died not long after Eleanor was born. Patrick did not think that he could earn a living and raise a small child, a common belief at the time. Eleanor was sent off to be raised by her spinster Aunt Bridget.

When I decided to open a cozy, homey tea room, I wanted to honor my Irish roots and foster a sense of family and community. And so, Aunt Bridget’s Tea Room is born. Bridget’s picture, taken circa 1900, is in the center of the logo.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet cuppa, want some peace to read a book, chat with friends, or need a quiet place for a business meeting, we are the perfect spot.

Bored? Play one of our games, or borrow one of our books and forget the world for a while.

In need of some entertainment? Come to one of our Irish folk evenings and sing-along!

Need a place to hold a family gathering or hold a small party? We can accommodate you on Sundays!

Call for party prices!
