Welcome to The Ironstone Cottage Tea Room & Garden!
The Ironstone Cottage is a small, family-owned tea room and garden located in Mountain Grove, Missouri. We are here to serve guests who are looking for more than the minimum.
After purchasing the 1917 Craftsman bungalow that would become The Ironstone Cottage in September of 2017, John and Melanie Holsti spent the rest of 2017 and all of 2018 remodeling, repairing, re-wiring and refreshing the interior and exterior. If you like to read about that sort of thing, we wrote all about it on the blog.
Opened in December of 2018, The Ironstone Cottage boasts 2 small indoor dining rooms, outdoor seating and a charming walking garden.
If you're traveling along Highway 60 or Highway 95 through South Central Missouri, stop in and see us for lunch. We're located just 1 block off both 95 and the business loop of 60 in Mountain Grove. We offer a menu of fresh, delicious sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts, many of which are prepared from local ingredients. Whether you're staying at a local motel, inn or Bed & Breakfast, on vacation in the Ozarks, Goin' Junkin' or just out running errands, we'll help you relax and enjoy a great meal.
Inside, enjoy the original hardwood floors and woodwork while you browse through the gift shop filled with a unique assortment of both luxury gifts and locally handmade items.
Choose from a selection of desserts (made on-site) in the bakery case and quality loose-leaf teas delivered to your table. When you find a tea you love, you can purchase it in the gift shop, and we'll teach you how to prepare it at home.
On the last Sunday of each month, we host a full Afternoon Tea by reservation.
If you're hosting a small bridal shower, baby shower or birthday party, we can prepare finger foods and desserts for your event.
We love to create gift baskets for your customers, employees or friends & family.
