Nancy and Tony from Crown City Antiques and Teaparlour
My husband and I schedule business trips to LA twice a year or so and love to stop and have tea afterwards to replenish and relax. However, outstanding tearooms are hard to find in the area we visit for business, but this one was extremely delightful and stood out miles apart from the rest! We found out about it from teamap when we searched for the zipcode we were going to be in. The pictures on teamap were beautiful, and when we arrived, it was even more so! The tables were set so perfectly with pastel napkins and crisp white tablecloths. Jenn, the owner, uses beautiful matching antique bone china (which are all in excellent condition) to serve her guests. We find this to be very special since we are both Antique fanatics and appreciate quality china. Jenn also uses fresh center pieces arranged elegantly in a 'tussy-mussey' style. The flowers are fresh and coordinate so perfectly with the table schemes. I can tell she is an artist and has a flare for color and arrangements - her tearoom is beautifully appointed, plus her presentation of the food is just as luscious with fresh garnish such as orchids and freshly minced parsley against bright, red, juicey tomatoes. We were first greeted by her charming husband, Ken. He is so very interesting and extremely attentive. The sandwiches were fresh and delicious and the teas she offered were soothing and had excellent flavors. We had a lovely chat with these two beautiful and gracious hosts after our service. We couldn't of asked for a lovelier tea time after a long ride to Glendale and hectic business appointments. Ken and Jenn made us feel relaxed and pampered. We sure hope to do the same for them when they come down to visit us in our tearoom in Coronado. They need the pampering real soon! We thank you for a lovely afternoon in your gorgeous tearoom! See you soon.
Nancy and Tony. What an absolute pleasure to have you both come to tea at the High Tea Cottage and thank you so much for your kind words. Ken and I enjoyed meeting you both so much and we are definitely taking the time to come and visit for wonderful conversation, relaxation, champagne and much needed pampering in Coronado.
Thank you for being the gracious couple you both truly are!!! Fondest Jenn and Ken
See you quite soon! Jenn and Kenn
