Great memories made at this charming tea house – I stumbled upon this tea house about 6 years ago and have been coming back to have tea with girlfriends time and time again. It's located on the oldest registered street in California...Los Rios St. I've always sat outside on the veranda/porch. Our servers have been attentive and knowledgeable about the teas and menu. Last year, a group of us ladies went there for an early Mother's Day celebration and had a great time. The pomegranate mimosas are delectable! All the desserts have been delicious and everyone enjoyed their menu choices. We were fortunate that the Orange County Flute Ensemble was there that morning. It really made the ambiance even nicer. When you sit on the porch, you can hear the nearby Mission bells ring when it strikes on the hour. Can't wait to celebrate Mother's Day here again soon!
Fabulous Tea – Charming location, wonderful yummies. More than you can eat. Excellent service
Great Find, Great Time! – My girlfriends and I try to make it a point to go for afternoon tea at least once a month. One of my girlfriends stumbled upon this place and recommended that we go for our next outing. What a great surprise! It is on the quaintest street in all of Orange County, I have come to believe, and the cottage it's housed in is adorable. We sat on the porch, which was a lovely time. We all had the Mission Tea, where we were able to select our own pots of tea and finger sandwiches, scones, fruit and dessert. The scones are to die for! They serve them with jam and this cream that was excellent. The sandwiches were not as flavorful as I would have hoped, but everything else made up for them. Our server was well-informed of the tea selections, and of the history of San Juan Capistrano, so it was fun to hear about the cottage being renovated. I had a great time here and have made it a point to come here now, since it's so close to home!
Horrible service – I would not recommend this "quaint" little tea house to anybody!!!!
This passed Monday for my Grandmother's 91st bday I thought it would be nice to treat her to some tea and sandwiches. Everything was organised by my mother, and seemed like it was going to be a wonderful experience. Then we arrived, and from the moment we stepped into the tea room to when we left, our service was less then adequete.
I am a vegan and cannot have most of what is on their menu, which is fine. But they should have been more than happy to accomadate me, which the did not. Instead they charged me the "adult" price for the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I could have; keep in mind this item is on the child's menu, and should not cost extra.
The server only visited our table to see how we were doing ONCE and NEVER refilled our beverages.
When we left, because I was more concerned about my Grandmother's belonging, I mistakingly forgot to pay the gratuity. So the server took it upon herself to run out after me in the parking lot to collect, in front of my family. She made me feel very EMBARASSED!
When I called the restaraunt to express my disappoinments with the way we were treated the manager just told me "i'm sorry for you experience, but there's nothing I can do for you."
I feel like I was treated unfairly and will not refer any of my clients, my friends, my familys, or anybody else to this place.
Don't miss this one! – This is the most adorable, romantic, get away restaurant. The atmosphere is so relaxing. The food is great and the service is wonderful. It would be great for a bridal shower, baby shower, Valentine's Day---any special event!
