      Marlene's Tea and Cakes launched in January 2014 and has been pleasing guests ever since! From delicious tea sandwiches, lovely decor that is masculine friendly, to the soups, presentation, and tea selection, this is the top San Diego destination for English afternoon tea. Whether to catch up with old friends or meet with new friends who are also tea lovers, it is a wonderful place to feel cared for and treated to a break. The tea selection has loose leaf mostly and yesterday's favorite was Roasted Almond. We also had Paris (Earl Grey with vanilla notes) and Lady Londonderry-also excellent. They also have other black teas, green tea, and Rooibos. I consider this tea location to be top 10 in California. Check it out. You will be pleasantly surprised.

      BEST IN SAN DIEGO! This gem is located in the lovely Santa Luz area minutes from 56 freeway. Marlene's Tea & Cakes serves delectable savories, scones and desserts in a perfectly beautiful 3-tier presentation.

      They serve a variety of loose leaf teas in fine china. The 5 course high tea is $29.95 which includes all house made items such as soup, savories, sandwiches, fruit, scone and desserts. The food is delicious and plentiful and the menu changes monthly. The atmosphere can be casual or dressy, depending on your mood and party. The decor is elegant and modern. Baked goods and beverages are also available in the cafe to go or dine in. There is also plenty of street parking if the lot is full.
