  • Coral Tree Tea House


    Looking for a wonderful English afternoon tea experience? Come to this quaint and delicious tea room in Heritage Park, Old Town San Diego. From making the reservation, to exiting the house, the staff is courteous and excellent. You park in the Heritage Park lot off of Harney St. And walk through the few houses up to the Tea House. In the foyer, they had a delightful display of jewelry for St. Patrick's Day. We were seated shortly--we followed our hostess down the hallway to the right. There are two connected soft yellow rooms-immediately you can sense the delightful atmosphere...They have a great selection of tea. We reserved the Queen's High Tea-their full service. We tried their Coral Tree tea(delightful), and ordered Chocolate Hazelnut Decaf, Pumpkin Pie, and Liquid Candy(chocolate & marshmallow). We liked all of them except the Liquid Candy-it had a slight aftertaste. We started with the Waldorf salad-light and a good appetizer. On the bottom tier, the petite sandwiches were an abundance in variety: cucumber, egg salad, chicken salad, a little spinach turnover, a wonton like one with cottage cheese, a ham & cheese croissant like roll, & they made a smoked turkey (instead of ham for me). The second tier had two types of scones-an apple peach and fruit cocktail with Devonshire cream & lemon curd. The top tier had 3 desserts including a delightful berry cup & seven layer brownie. An extra plate had apple and orange slices, along with cute & tasty cheesecakes! So much food we had to take home some. It was no problem for them to provide separate checks. If you want water, I suggest you request it when you order the first round of tea. Be careful if you are wearing heels while walking back to the lot. The pavement is cobblestone and is going slightly downhill. They had told me they have a handicapped entrance to the side. Overall, a happy and yummy time-I am bringing more friends back here.
