Tuesday, September 11, 2018 will be the first day Stories & Tea will be hosted in our new venue, Bluebird Coffee at 261 Dalhousie Street (only a couple of blocks from the Tea Party). Our upcoming fall and winter seasons will be held at Bluebird Coffee thanks to the wonderful community spirit of owner Raymond Roy.

A huge thank you to the owners of The Tea Party Cafe, Christine and Surinder, and our server, Katherine, for supporting Stories & Tea over the years. We wish them all the best as they move onto new adventures.


Join us for an evening of storytelling with Stories & Tea, every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at Bluebird Coffee, 261 Dalhousie St. in Ottawa's ByWard Market.

Stories start at 7pm with a break part way through for treats and chatting.

Admission is Pay-What-You-Can (suggested $5 minimum).

Stories & Tea is presented by Ottawa StoryTellers & Bluebird Coffee.
