Arranged a 'Girl's Day' outing with 3 girlfriends from High School. I came from New Jersey for a visit to California, and met my friends at Barbara's. What a delightful experience we had! The tea, food, atmosphere, and quality of service were all excellent! We would certainly give a good recommendation to others that are looking to enjoy the 'niceties' of afternoon tea. Have been to several other teahouses over the years, and would rank Barbara's as one of the best. Barbara and her staff couldn't have been nicer, and they made us feel right at home. The food is all made from scratch too. The gift shop is also very lovely, and the decor takes you back to yesteryear. What a beautiful old Victorian house, lovingly preserved! Can't wait to return to Barbara's on my next visit to the 'Golden State' of California! Thanks Barbara!!
