About Us

From the moment you enter Miss Martha’s Tea Room & Floral, you realize that this charming shop is a place you will return to again and again.

At the heart of the shop is a cozy dining area replete with a 1910 baby grand piano, pieces of salvaged Victorian architecture and other classic and antique accoutrements.

Miss Martha’s Tea Room is located in historic downtown Scottdale, PA, in the building which once housed the old Porter & Stoner Dry Goods and Grocery Store. Its history stretches back to 1899, and Porter & Stoner served the community for more than three decades. In the mid 1930s, Cecil Echard remodeled the building and operated a restaurant for the next thirty years. Eck’s Restaurant occupied the building until 1961. After a few years of vacancy, Provident Bookstore operated a religious bookstore in the building from 1964 into the new century. Today this venerable old building has a new look and a bright new future as the home of Miss Martha’s Tea Room & Floral.

Miss Martha’s Tea Room & Floral is the fulfilled dream of owner Marty Savanick, who has always loved antiques, collectibles, and making people happy. Her first entrepreneurial venture came in 1989 with opening of Collections by Marty in Scottdale. Following this success, Marty opened a second, larger store along Route 31 in Donegal, one well positioned to take advantage of tourist traffic through the Laurel Highlands and to Seven Springs. But as her businesses grew, Marty always harbored the dream of opening a Tea Room, at first thinking the new enterprise could be a part of Collections by Marty. But when the old Provident Book Store in Scottdale became available, Marty knew the time for her Tea Room had come at last. Today, the entire family is involved in running Marty’s ventures, including sons Benjamin, Nathan, and Adam.

Marty is far from having run out of ideas. Seven dining rooms are being restored on the second floor, perfect for Bridge clubs, Christmas parties, and small, elegant get-togethers. Etiquette classes for young girls and other informational and entertainment events are being planned.

Miss Martha’s Tea Room & Floral, in its wonderful, 125 year old building, is a fun treat that should not be missed. So stop by, or plan to reserve your group for a special teatime event; you will not be disappointed.
