Great historical location in the heart of Old Town Lompoc, located half-way between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. We are an American tea room with a decidedly British influence. Our tea room is comfortable, furnished with a variety of seating styles, from formal dining tables, to summery white wicker, to relaxed, large leather chairs. Artwork by local artists graces the walls.
Over 70 different teas are offered along with the popular Elegant Afternoon Tea which includes tea sandwiches, warm scones and a wonderful dessert selection. During the lunch hours they serve
a variety of English specials such as Cottage Pie, Pasties, Sausage Rolls, etc. The lunch menu includes quiches with soup or salad and the Ploughman's plate, with a hearty selection of English cheeses, bread and fruit.
The attractive gift shop carries a wide assortment of tea-related items as well as good quality bulk tea.
I was staying in Santa Barbara for two weeks and my friend and I ventured here for tea one day. I want to go back so much, but I live in Philadelphia. The tea parlor has such a lovely atmosphere and the food was amazing. There is a great menu with a really nice variety! :)

My sister lives in Lompoc and when I arrive, we make B-line to Penelope's. It is the best tea room I have been to. The Elegant Tea is wonderful. They have a wonderful assortment of teas to order with your tea or lunch. You can purchase them as well. The service is good and we always ask for Keri when she is available. She is very knowledgable about the teas as well as the menu. If you are in the area,going to Penelope's is a must.
