When I'm in the Pasadena, I love going to Chado's. I only wish they had one in the Orange County area. This is the only tearoom my husband will go to because it's not a 'frilly' place and it's more of a restaurant atmosphere. The sandwiches are always so yummy and the fillings are generous in comparison to many other tearooms that just spread a thin layer of filling. It took me a few trips to figure out that you can substitute sandwiches. I'm not a big fan of the Mediterranean sandwich, so I always substitute it with another cranberry chicken. Also, you do need to let the servers know what type of scone and dessert you want with your tea, because they usually don't ask. The service could be better, but the quality and price ($15) for tea is VERY reasonable. I have gone to other tearooms that charge $30-$45 that aren't half as good.
