About the Tea Room

Barbara Jerome Behl opened her tearoom in 2010, but before it was born, the building had many other purposes. When originally built in the 1900’s, it was the town mercantile, and later it became the Shawnee Store. The Shawnee Tea Room is proud to be part of the historical district of Shawnee Colorado and celebrates the rich history and culture of the town. It embraces past traditions, and still acts as a gathering place for the 285 community.

“It’s Time, to take Time”

At the Shawnee Tea Room, we believe “It’s time, to take time”. We want our guest to take time to enjoy a warm cup of tea, and slow down their pace of life. The tea room is an excellent place to gather friends and family and enjoy each others company. We offer antiques, teas from across the world, and an experience like none other.
