The Parker Grace Tea Room began in 1994 when Laurie McBride had a dream to open a tea room with a scratch kitchen and a romantic, charming overall experience.
After running tea rooms in both Ohio and Tennessee, Indiana is Laurie's third state to open a tea room.
Nestled in historic and beautiful Roanoke, the Parker Grace Tea Room is filled with gorgeous artifacts that not only create an elegant and charming atmosphere, but also communicate rich story and history. Built in 1855, we transformed the oldest existing home in Roanoke into an enchanting get-away.
Surround yourself with china, crystal, story, and good company.
Our crystal chandeliers are a guest favorite. These French beauties date back to the 1950s and give our tea room an elegant, luxurious glow.
Our enchanting mantel was hand-crafted by our owner. We love the fine detail and victorian feel this piece brings to our space.
Our owner's granddaughter, Cassidy, has her own special table in our tea room. Adorned with art pieces that are representative of the countless drawings Cassidy has made for her grandmother, this table is always open to sweet Cassidy to share sugary treats with grandma.
Our tea room is filled with vintage oil paintings collected throughout the life span of our owner. We love the homey and elegant touch these works of art bring to the space!
This shelf is filled with gifts from our owner's sisters. We love the Williamsburg Wedgewood shelf and many of the pieces sent from Houston, Texas!
Often credited with the famous quote, "Let them eat cake," our unique Marie Antoinette dessert stand holds all kinds of our favorite goodies. Antoinette was the last queen before the French Revolution and was known for her choices in wardrobe and jewelry.
One of our most cherished pieces, this table was used for Sunday meals for decades by our owner's family. A passed on gift from her mother, this table brings many memories of love and community to our tea room.
An eye-catcher for most of our customers, we love our vintage, 100-year-old cash register.
