Pleasant Thymes is a MUST go. Firstly, I want to share just how genuine and kind Sherry is. She puts her heart and soul into each and everyone’s experience, making your time there so intimate and special. Sherry’s food and dessert creations are to die for, as well as the tea of course. Give this place a visit. You won’t regret it!

My experience at Pleasant Thymes was an incredible experience! Everything from the food, the hospitality, the music, the setting was completely amazing. I loved all of the food we had. The scones were delicious, the charcuterie display was awesome, and the prime rib was perfect. It was a great experience that I will never forget.
