    Best variety of scones I've ever had at a Tea. Very pretty outside, the indoors is a bit small, so would only sit there based on inclement weather. Montrose is a cute city so it was worth the drive. Perhaps in the future they can expand their tea menu to include a few other varieties. Overall, I'm really glad my daughter & I tried this place.

    My daughter and I enjoy trying out new tea places a and Sugarbird is in our top 3. Food/tea was wonderful, ambience was great and the customer service was the best. I would definitely recommend it. We even bought more scones and cream cheese to go.

    So happy to have a new tea place available! Providing an afternoon tea experience in the LA area is difficult, as we have seen establishments come and go. The scones and other food was wonderful with our pre-paid afternoon tea. The setting outside was perfect with exception of some occasional traffic. Please support Sugarbird Cafe!

    It is a very quaint little cafe. My Mom and I enjoyed our time very much. Everything we ate was good and there was a nice variety to choose from. It was a sweet way to spend Mother's Day. We would go again.
