"Kindred Spirits are not so scarce as I used to think.

It's splendid to find there are so many of them in the world"

-L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

You are cordially invited to come dine with us in one of the finest examples of Queen Anne Victorian architecture throughout the Hoosier State. Constructions of the English Rose Cafe & Tea Room began as early as 1900 and was finally completed in 1903 by architect James E Bruff.  John M. Leach purchased this parcel of land at the corner of Jefferson and Webster where he had this home built for his new bride, Emma Dean, as a wedding gift.  The English Rose Cafe and Tea Room is proudly listed as an Official Historical Site of Kokomo, Indiana.  Our hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday 11am to 3pm.


Reservation required due to limited seating.
