Best tea shop around! – I have been going to Lady Di's since 2002. I am instantly relaxed when I step inside. The staff are always nice and friendly. I love going here for sandwiches, scones, and tea. Make sure to make a reservation if you're going for tea and/or lunch, especially on Saturday.
A top class Brit establishment, by a Brit, for Brits (and other savvy Oregonians). – As an old Brit I have shopped at this store for 15+ years. The current owner and staff are "luverly", friendly and oh so helpful (as was the prior owner). No store can stock everything that everyone wants but Lady Di's stock just about everything a Brit could desire (even that wonderfully sinfull Turkish Delight for Xmas). The bacon, whether it be Irish or Danish, is out of this world and I am really surprised my American friends are not rushing to outlaw this streaky "stuff" the supermarkets sell as bacon. The Tea Room side of the business needs no additional praise, just try it and you'll love it. Considering the costs of shipping and complications of importing, the prices of the goods for sale are very fair in my opinion.
Lovely Slice of England – This place lovely. I'm from Blackpool, England myself and it is like a little taste of my childhood for me. The owners and employees are all very personable and the prices are not as high as many import stores. I will surely come back again.
Quality Slice of Great Britain! – I take exception to the person disappointed by the selection here. They missed the point!
This shop carries a very good selection of Quality British items such as tea, jams, teapots, bacon (not the American version, which is called "Streaky Bacon" by my friends from the UK), crisps, tea cozys, etc, etc.
They also have authentic Tea Room menu offerings, with excellant hot tea, lovely finger sandwiches, fluffy scones, clotted cream and jam, to name a few. The ambiance is lovely, as is the staff and the service. Best of all, their prices are quite reasonable and I do quite a bit of gift shopping there, not to mention stocking up on my favorite tea (Yorkshire Gold) which is very difficult to find elsewhere.
I look forward to my next cream tea and a bit of shopping there! Long live the Queen of British Tea Shops! If you prefer your shopping experience to come from a warehouse, steer clear of this experience! :)
It has Irn Bru!!! – Sure this place may not have a wide array like World market but at World Market can you buy the really good stuff???
I have hunted high and low for Irn Bru, Scottish Country Store sells it but usually it is close to its expiration date. Lady Di's has Bru that doesn't expire for another few months and it stocks the greatest bacon you could ever eat. Chocolate, tea, bacon, pies, suasage rolls, Bru, Robinsons, Buttons, sometimes crisps, Lucozade and even Dettol (I have some really bad memories of that!)
I shall definitely be returning to Lady Di's. Sure if I need a wider choice of curry paste i will use one of the Indian stores on the west side but as long as their is Bru on the shelf I have no complaints.
Best selection of British goods and gifts I have seen outside of UK – Lady's Di is a *must* visit if you're looking for anything which you miss from Britian from tea to toiletries, biscuits to packet sauces, sweets to cakes, jams to pickles. Right now, they have an amazing selection of Christmas goods (cakes, mince pies, crackers) etc. So delighted to discover a place like this in the area, it reminds me of a village corner shop in the UK. One of the positive things I noticed, the "Best Before" dates are far out (2007, 2008 and 2009 etc). I can't believe it has taken me 5 years to find this place!
"Little" is right – Cost Plus World Market has a better array of British foodstuffs... this place definitely does not have a wide array. Grocery items are in area no bigger than a walk-in pantry, and many items had only one each on the shelf. Doubtful I'll go back.
A little bit o' Britain – What a delight to find this charming little shop brimming with everything you ever wanted from Britain. Enormous choice of food and gifts and a lovely tea room with deliciously genuine food. Even the owner is British!
