      My walking group visited this tearoom to celebrate a birthday. The decor was beautiful and the service was leisurely. The savory and desserts were wonderful, but the sandwiches were ordinary and somewhat bland. Other than the sandwiches, it was a very pleasant experience.

      I have had tea at many places, but The Grand Tea Room was the best. We had the light lunch tea: the salad was freshly picked, the fruit was delicious, the sandwiches were great and varied, and then came the scone. The scone was clearly made in their kitchen and was just terrific. They currently have 40 teas. I had the Florence tea flavored with chocolate and hazelnut - it was fabulous. Have never had anything quite like this. My friend and I would recommend The Grand Tea Room to everyone.

      This place is beautiful, however, I feel as if you do not get enough food for the money you spend. I will say the service was fantastic! That is always a plus.

      We had a private party 80th birthday celebration at The Grand Tea room. The service and food were wonderful. The staff are warm and accommodating and our group of 25+ had a very special and fun time. Because they are a newer tea room, they are flexible and more hospitable than some of the tea rooms around San Diego. I have been to most of the tea rooms in San Diego and The Grand Tea room is similarly priced. The decor is Victorian and decorated in the style of a traditional tea room. My mother and her guests raved about her tea party! I will definitely come back.

      Very much enjoyed the entire experience in January. Had a quaint small table in front of the fireplace. Also enjoyed shopping afterwards.

      I visited this tearoom with some friends this past week and thought it was delightful. The service was good and the food was wonderful. The only little thing was that the scones were really dry. Other than that I will definitely be going back. And thank you Louisa for bringing a tea shop to the North County.

      I have been to The Grand Tea Room twice now and am planning a large costumed event there as well. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The tea selection is awesome and I purchased some Green Pomegranate Tea to take home and enjoy. I had the side garden salad for $4 which was very green, healthy & tasty. The walk-in Cream Tea for an additional $10 made for a delightful meal for a very reasonable price. I had The Garden Tea on a previous occassion with friends. The crystal chandeliers and the white lace tablecloths make the ambience very well worth the full tea price. The owner Louisa and her husband are very friendly. I would highly recommend The Grand Tea Room for a bridal shower, baby shower, birthday or a Red Hat group. I have been to tea in many places including the Ritz in Paris. The Grand Tea Room will be my regular tea establishment. Thank you for opening up in Northern San Diego County! (There are also free parking lots one block north and south of the restaurant in case all of the street parking is taken.)

      My husband and I have experience a lot of Tea Houses and this is now our favorite! It's a true 'tea' experience. The decor is elegant and comfortable. The food is beyond delicious and is reasonably priced for both the quality and quantity that is served vs. other tea houses that we've experienced. Everything about the place was perfect! If you love doing 'tea', The Grand Tea Room is a must! Brenda and Scott

      I dined at the this tea room today and I thought it was excellent! Even though they have only been open a few weeks, it seems that everyone has been trained well. The previous review from 'Kathy' was spot on. Also, I asked them about the scones since I thought the size was fine, and they said that they started making them larger since a few people mentioned they were kind of small. Isn't it nice when businesses listen to constructive critisism!!! I will be returning often.

      My husband and I drove 3 1/2 hours from Los Angeles to visit this tearoom on October 1, 2011. It was their 2nd day open and we were there for the'soft opening'. I grew up in Escondido and was looking forward to a tearoom in my former stomping grounds. This tearoom was FABULOUS!!!! Most EXCELLENT service!!! We both ordered the 'Grand Tea' which consisted of a warm Bluberry Scone (small but still delicious!)with Lemon Curd, Devon Cream, and Jam; Tomato Basil soup with a small piece of garlic bread; Chicken Salad on a small Crossant, Egg Salad on wheat, open face Cucumber sandwich and a crustless Ham Quiche served with red/green grapes, blueberries,and pineapple. For Dessert there was a mini Pumpkin cupcake, mini fruit tart with custard, mini Lemon bar and a mini Chocolate Mouse that was to die for!!! As you can see, there was a TON of food and we were very stuffed!!!! Oh, and endless Pots of TEA!! If I lived closer, I would be there every week! Since 2008, 18 tearooms have closed in Southern California and very few have opened. I enjoyed my tea at The Grand Tearoom and love supporting small business!! It's what keeps this country going!!!!

      I have been waiting and waiting for this teahouse located in North County to open. As the prices are a bit high, two friends and I decided to 'try it out' on the Cream Tea before having our whole group visit. The tearoom is BEAUTIFUL!!! The furniture, linens, dishes, artwork, etc are all perfect ... even the bathrooms are charming. I love the little gift shop out front, lots of interesting items I've not seen anywhere else. I also like that there is separation between the gift shop and the tearoom. Unfortunately, the Cream Tea fell short of our expectations. The scone was very small and served cold. Along with the scone we were served three thin slices of kiwi, four blueberries and less than 10 grapes. Although the tearoom itself is stunning, I don’t plan on returning which is very sad, I was really looking forward to loving this place.
