Camellia Tea Room at Milner Gardens & Woodland

The Camellia Tea Room can be found in what used to be the Drawing Room of Milner House and features delicate bone china, ambient music, aromatic fresh floral arrangements and scenic views of the Salish Sea and Coastal Mountains. Our menu consists of freshly baked Milner scones with Devonshire cream and strawberry jam or whipped butter with raspberry jam, tea, coffee and a rotating selection of hot soups, sandwiches and decadent desserts made with fresh produce hand-picked from our garden. Please check our Facebook or Instagram pages every Wednesday to see the latest menu for the upcoming weekend.

We are thrilled to carry our exclusive Milner Signature Tea and Coffee selections, beautifully handcrafted by The Denman Island Tea Company and French Press Coffee Roasters. Packs of the herbal "Veronica's Garden" or black "Long Distance" teas, and "Ray's Blend" coffee are available for purchase at the Pool House Gift Shop.

Current Hours: Thursday - Sunday from 12:00pm - 3:00pm. No reservations required.

The Camellia Tea Room will be closed to walk-in service on Saturday, May 11th and Sunday, May 12th for our Mother's Day Afternoon Tea event.
