A tea room just outside of Charlottetown has been named one of Canada's best.

Grandma's Tea Room has been operating in Winsloe for more than 10 years, and operator Cindy Cousineau was astonished when she found she was one of just seven in the country on Chatelaine's list of best Canadian tea room.

"I wasn't excited. I was ecstatic," said Cousineau.

"I'm a spot on the top of that little pin and those places are amazing. They are. They're dream places. It's a really nice mention. It's a beautiful mention."

Other tea rooms on the list include the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C. and the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa. Grandma's Tea was the only listing from Atlantic Canada.
