Laura’s Tea Room – Ridgeway, South Carolina

Ridgeway is home to Laura’s Tea Room, a delightful stop on the town’s main street, Palmer. This small restaurant is so delightful, in fact, it is one of our two favorite places we have ever dined on a “SCIWAY on the Highway” road trip!

Originally the town mercantile, this historic building has been completely renovated but still utilizes the same cabinets, heart-pine floors, and library ladder. The main level features a gift shop and small dining area, while the upper level offers a full tea service in a formal (but still relaxed) setting.

Upon reaching the upper floor of Laura’s Tea Room, patrons are asked to select a cup and saucer from this beautiful table display. Each cup is unique, adding a personal touch to the individual’s dining experience.

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Laura’s Tea Room, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!

An excellent deli is open downstairs, and a library ladder was actually used to retrieve shoe boxes stored on the shelves. This is a “don’t miss” destination.

Hi Phyllis! We have added a map to our Laura’s Tea Room page that should help you find your way!
